The New York Jets take full advantage of this three-round mock
The New York Jets are a complete dumpster fire right now. Currently sitting at 0-11 and on pace to finish the season winless, something has got to give right? The Jets will need more than just some talented draft picks to get this thing turned around. It’s time to move on from Adam Gase. He’s been a cancer to the team since his arrival.
Since becoming a head coach in the NFL, Gase has compiled an overall record of 30-45, a subpar .400 winning percentage. More importantly, he’s had just one winning season in his career and no playoff wins. The real question is, why does Adam Gase still have a job? On the outside looking in, it appears that the Jets are committed to Adam Gase for the remainder of the season.
After the season is over and the first overall pick is secured, the Jets should relieve him of his duties. At least that’s what the logical choice should be. New York finds themselves in the same position that they were in, in 2018. In need of a franchise quarterback and a lot more talent on both sides of the ball. With draft season in full effect and the draft order taking shape after every Sunday, here is a three-round mock draft for the New York Jets.
1: New York Jets: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Lawrence was projected to be a first-round pick since first stepping foot on Clemson’s campus and rightfully so. He’s arguably the most touted quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck. Lawrence brings outstanding physical traits and arm talent that you simply cannot teach. After missing some time due to the ongoing health crisis, he returned to the field last Saturday with an impressive performance against Pittsburgh.
Finishing the game with 26 completions, 403 passing yards, and two passing touchdowns, he looked like his normal supremely talented self. Whoever the next head coach is in New York will be pleased to have Lawrence under center. Sam Darnold will be on his way out the door as a new regime is set to come in. Plenty of speculation has been about what Lawrence should do when the Jets land the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Avoiding the Jets like the plague wouldn’t be a bad idea. He can return to school or force a trade as Eli Manning did during his draft process. After seeing how the organization handled Sam Darnold, one could understand why forcing his hand could be a possibility for the star quarterback. For the time being, Lawrence will land in New York and hopefully lead this organization to stardom in the future.
