1. New York Jets
We know that the New York Jets are interested in adding a wide receiver. They were in talks to acquire Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs before the Dolphins swooped in to make a deal. Plenty of mock drafts have had the Jets selecting a receiver with the 10th pick, their second of two first-round selections they’ll have next week.
Familiarity is the biggest thing that stands out with the Jets. Both head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur were in the San Francisco 49ers building when Deebo Samuel was selected, and he’d translate seamlessly into LaFleur’s offensive scheme.
Samuel would give Zach Wilson another reliable target in the passing game, and he’d be able to threaten every level of the field in that offense. Like Elijah Moore, Samuel would bring more YAC ability to the receiver room, as his short area burst, straight line speed, and contact balance make him difficult to stop.
The Jets have a ton of draft capital to make this happen, and while the 49ers are supposedly demanding a “king’s ransom”, something in the neighborhood of picks 35 and 38 could get it done. That also still gives the Jets the ability to move back from 10 and recoup that capital, and now the receiver room looks great for your young quarterback.
