Jets could use one Dan Leberfeld

While it probably won’t happen with the #2 pick overall, it could happen if the Jets trade down in the first round, or at 23, with the pick they got from Seattle in the Jamal Adams’ trade.

Talking about the Jets picking a cornerback, which is one of their top needs. Here is a breakdown of some of the top corners in the draft they could consider:

Patrick Surtain II, Alabama (6’2″, 202)

A big, physical, durable, shutdown cornerback with great bloodlines, as the son of a terrific NFL cornerback of the same name, who was also his high school coach in South Florida. Surtain II is very good in press coverage.

Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech (6’2″, 207)

Tall, physical cornerback with great ball skills, who had 4 picks and 12 PD’s in 2019. He opted out of the 2020 season, so teams will have to go off 2019 film, which was excellent. He’s terrific in press coverage.

Jaycee Horn, South Carolina (6’1″, 205)

The son of former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn, he had 2 picks and 6 PD’s in seven game this year, before opting out mid-season. He has a nice combination of size and athleticism, and does a terrific job in man-to-man coverage.

Shawn Wade, Ohio State (6’1″, 195)

Played in 27 of 28 games over the past two seasons with 57 career tackles, four interceptions, three forced fumbles and 19 passes defended. A five-star recruit out of Jacksonville who played this past year as a graduate student.
