2020 NFL Draft: 5 players Jets could take in Round 1

With a lot of needs and a smartly modest approach to free agency, the New York Jets have plenty of options to consider in the first round of the NFL Draft.

The NFL Draft is just over a month away, and the New York Jets find themselves in an interesting spot. The Jets hold the 11th-overall pick in the first round, and who they end up picking could well be dictated by what happens right in front of them.

In an ideal world Jets’ general manager Joe Douglas would land his left tackle of the future, but with several tackle-needy teams in front of New York, there’s a chance the top four prospects go off the board in the top 10. Douglas could look to trade back in that scenario or use his first pick to fill another area of need like wide receiver, cornerback, or edge rusher.

5. LSU DE K’Lavon Chaisson

It feels like the Jets have been trying to find a pass rusher for about a decade, and this year is no exception. The Jets were linked to many pass rushers who received franchise tags and pursued Dante Fowler before he wound up in Atlanta.

One pass rusher who should be available for the Jets at No. 11 is Chaisson, who profiles well as a pure speed rusher. Chaisson needs to add some power moves to be an every-down player, but he could start contributing right away on passing downs.
