The Jets return to familiar territory after another mediocre season

It’s anything but perfect, but the New York Jets have nonetheless earned a 10.

The end of the NFL’s 2023 regular season on Sunday solidified the first 18 picks of next spring’s draft and the Jets come in at 10th overall among the non-playoff teams. New York (7-10) is back in the top 10 after picking Will McDonald at 15th last season.

Despite dealing with the bittersweet rewards of yet another mediocre season, the Jets have good memories packed with the 10th pick. In 2022, they used the selection to take current franchise cornerstone Garrett Wilson out of Ohio State. The pick was previously obtained in a 2020 trade with the Seattle Seahawks, one that famously sent safety Jamal Adams to the Pacific Northwest.

The Jets have also held the 10th pick on consecutive occasions in 1984-85, respectively choosing secondary defender Russell Carter and receiver Al Toon. Alongside Wilson, other recent No. 10 picks include DeVonta Smith (2021, Philadelphia), Patrick Mahomes (2017, Kansas City), and Todd Gurley (2015, St. Louis).

As it stands, the Jets are poised to select seven times in the 2024 draft. Their second-round pick (41st overall) resides with playoff-bound Green Bay thanks to last offseason’s trade for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

By virtue of a trade with the 2-15 Carolina Panthers, the Chicago Bears will choose first this spring. The Washington Commanders beat out fellow four-win squads from New England and Arizona for the second pick while the Los Angeles Chargers round out the top five.

The 2024 NFL Draft will be held on April 25-27 in Detroit.
