PLAYER EVALUATION

A guy who plays bigger than his real stature, he was the best WR in CFB statistically a season ago at LSU with Burrow at QB. He opted out of the 2020 season. We have him ranked as a top 10 draft board lock. (LSU's potent offense and #6 preseason ranking have taken a blow Sunday with the news that wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is opting out of his junior season to prepare for the NFL Draft. WVUE-FOX 8's Garland Gillen confirmed the news first reported by CBS Sports HQ. Chase won the 2019 Biletnikoff Award, given to the top receiver in the nation, en route to a 2-touchdown performance in the Tigers' National Championship win over Clemson. For the season, the Rummel High product had 84 catches for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns. - WVUE FOX 8 News)

TEAM ANALYSIS

Other Considerations If Available:

BYU QB Zach Wilson or Alabama WR DeVonta Smith or Trade back or Trade For Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson

The Jets need a lot to improve their roster moving into the 2021 season, and by drafting a QB with a rookie contract, they can quickly find themselves in prime position. The Jets have a favorable cap situation heading into a year where the $198M cap in 2020 could drop to $175M because of losses in 2020 due to the pandemic. The Jets can go a few different ways; they could trade the pick away for Deshaun Watson, they could stick with Darnold, trade back, and grab a WR. The other puzzle for the Jets is which of the QB's projected to be available at number two is the best option, Ohio State's Justin Fields or BYU's Zach Wilson?
