New York Jets expected to target the offense in round one

The website NFL Mock Draft Database features a consensus mock draft that is constantly updated each day. It pulls data from hundreds of mock drafts by writers across the internet to create a mock draft that summarizes the world’s consensus prediction.

In the consensus mock draft, each team selects the available player who is most commonly mocked to them. In other words, if the No. 1 most commonly mocked player to the Jets is not available, the Jets will take the player who is the second-most commonly mocked to them. If No. 2 is not available, they go to No. 3, and so forth.

There are no trades in the consensus mock.

As of the morning of February 1, here are the top 15 picks of the first round in the consensus mock draft:

  1. Chicago Bears: Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama (Mocked to Chicago in 53% of mocks)
  2. Houston Texans: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama (71%)
  3. Arizona Cardinals: Jalen Carter, DL, Georgia (26%)
  4. Indianapolis Colts: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State (53%)
  5. Seattle Seahawks: Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech (59%)
  6. Detroit Lions: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois (19%)
  7. Las Vegas Raiders: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky (27%)
  8. Atlanta Falcons: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson (33%)
  9. Carolina Panthers: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida (38%)
  10. Philadelphia Eagles: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon (31%)
  11. Tennessee Titans: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State (39%)
  12. Houston Texans: Quentin Johnson, WR, TCU (32%)
  13. New York Jets: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern (21%)
  14. New England Patriots: Jordan Addison, WR, USC (19%)
  15. Green Bay Packers: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame (19%)

Per the internet consensus, the New York Jets are currently projected to select Northwestern offensive tackle Peter Skoronski with the 13th overall pick. Skoronski goes to New York in 21% of the mock drafts utilized by NFL Mock Draft Database.

Skoronski is actually the second-most commonly mocked player to the Jets. Ohio State offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. has the lead with a 25% share. However, Johnson goes to the Titans with the 11th overall pick in the consensus mock draft, leaving Skoronski to the Jets.

It seems clear that the NFL world fully expects Joe Douglas and the Jets to beef up their offensive line with the 13th overall pick.

Any of the top OT’s is fine w/ me.
If memory serves, one of them supposedly has the kind of position flexibility like AVT?
That would be my guy, given our horrendous injury history.

The nice thing about this season, is I haven’t done much looking at the draft, so I’m not well read. What I have seen is that I would think long and hard before passing on Quentin Johnson if he is there. I realize in this mock it’s not possible but I don’t think it’s OL no matter what for Joe.
