One prospect has separated himself as the clear favorite to become a New York Jet

While there is rarely much to be gleaned from any individual mock draft (unless we are talking about Daniel Jeremiah, a noted New York Jets prophet), there is plenty to be learned from analyzing the consensus.

NFL Mock Draft Database features a consensus mock draft that is built using over 1,000 mock drafts from writers all over the internet. It is a great tool for taking the current pulse of the draft community.

As for the New York Jets, a massive favorite has emerged for the 10th overall pick.

Here is the current top 10 in the consensus mock draft as of April 10:

  1. Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC (Selected in 100% of mock drafts)
  2. Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (61%)
  3. New England Patriots: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (44%)
  4. Arizona Cardinals: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State (89%)
  5. Los Angeles Chargers: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (26%)
  6. New York Giants: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (18%)
  7. Tennesee Titans: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (76%)
  8. Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama (79%)
  9. Chicago Bears: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (11%)
  10. New York Jets: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia (64%)

Sent to the Jets in 64% of mock drafts in the website’s system, Georgia tight end Brock Bowers has emerged as the consensus favorite by a wide margin. The 64% pick rate is the fifth-highest among all 32 slots in the first round, trailing only Caleb Williams at No. 1 (100%), Marvin Harrison Jr. at No. 4 (89%), Dallas Turner at No. 8 (79%), and Joe Alt at No. 7 (76%).

Bowers is arguably the most controversial figure in Jetsland right now. Few people sit on the fence when discussing the dynamic tight end prospect. It seems Jets fans are either strongly in favor of him or strongly against him.

Ultimately, the only person whose opinion matters is Joe Douglas. In his four-year tenure as the Jets’ general manager, Douglas has yet to draft a tight end in the top 100 – his highest selection being Jeremy Ruckert at No. 101 in 2022. We shall see if Bowers intrigues Douglas enough for him to buck the trend.

I can only hope that your article about Bowers’ huge red flag (nearly half his catches were BEHIND the LOS!) was seen by those that matter.
This guy is more RB than TE; if that’s why we draft him than I’ll root for him, but at 10 I think we should go OT rather than pick a tandem for Breece.

If we trade down, what are your thoughts on Cooper Dejean? Safety isn’t the strongest position and next year CB could be a need with Reed and Carter currently slated to be FAs
