2022 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #5

Return to Mock Draft

NY Jets
Charles Cross

Mississippi State


In keeping with the theme of our first pick, we look to add some more talent in the trenches. The foundation a team requires to develop any young QB is to protect him. Well Wilson hasn't really had that luxury this year. The Jets have given up 31 sacks thru 11 games (tied 27th) and Wilson has missed game time because of injury.

Some of it is on the loss of Becton for the season, some of it is on the Rookie QB but most of it is on the O-Line and in particular, the interior. Using the 5th overall pick on an interior Lineman seems like a huge reach, so instead we opt for Charles Cross. Having Cross and Becton at both Tackle spots would be a nice young foundation to help Wilson in his development.
