The New York Jets have had an offseason to remember. Of course the big headline is Aaron Rodgers will be under center for the Jets. That, alone, signifies the team is ready to make the leap from perennial cellar-dweller to Super Bowl 2024 contender under coach Robert Saleh. 

Filling any gaps before a run for a Vince Lombardi Trophy can be done at the 2023 NFL Draft, and the Jets have a prime spot in the opening round to do just that. If they get this offseason right, the Jets will be vaulting up the futures odds boards on New York betting apps this summer.

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has used his resources of NFL contacts developed over 20 years covering the league and the NFL Draft to create his hypothetical NFL futures odds on who gets selected 15th by the New York Jets in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Who Will The Jets Take In 2023 NFL Draft?

The Jets have a defense that might be top 5 in the NFL thanks to the re-signing of LB Quincy Williams and the addition of safety Chuck Clark from the Ravens. 

Rodgers gives a maligned offense of 2022 one of the game’s all-time greats under center for 2023. They’ve already inked old Rodgers target Allen Lazard from Green Bay. 

The Jets relinquished the No. 13 overall pick in the trade for Rodgers, but received the No. 15 pick. The slight move doesn't change New York's first-round hopes. 

Ensuring Rodgers stays healthy will be the main goal. The 2022 offensive line ranked 31st out of 32 teams in overall play, only ahead of the Titans. Health played a huge part in that, but there’s room for improvement as well. 

Three offensive tackles have separated themselves from the rest of the Class of 2023. The bad news is any of them could be gone before the Jets pick at No. 15. The good news: At least one of them should be available, and it’s likely two or more are on the board. 

Peter Skoronski Odds To Join The New York Jets

It’s possible three O-linemen go by No. 15. Peter Skoronski of Northwestern, Broderick Jones of Georgia and Paris Johnson Jr. of Ohio State could go in any order. 

That said, it’s Skoronski who is considered the most NFL-ready, the most steady and the most consistent. He was named the Big Ten Lineman of the Year – that’s saying something in that rugged conference. And his ability to also play guard offers versatility compared to his rivals. 

Jones is a strong, aggressive tackle with advanced technique. Not only that, he’s been facing SEC-level edge rushers en route to a national championship. Jones faced the best and flourished. He might be the most likely to be taken by the Jets if they favor experience.

Johnson has ideal size (at 6-foot-6 he’s taller than the other two prospects) and NFL-ready quickness, but technique-wise there may be a steeper learning curve compared to the other two prospects. Despite that, his size and quickness have teams as high as the Arizona Cardinals (No. 3) considering Johnson. 

Tackle Darnell Wright of Tennessee would be a strong "consolation" prize if the aforementioned three are all gone by No. 15. 

Defensive line or cornerback could be the outlier if the O-linemen are gone. DL Myles Murphy of Clemson has projected anywhere from 10th to 28th, while cornerback Joey Porter Jr. of Penn State could give the Jets three of the top 30 CBs in the league, led by top-ranked Sauce Gardner

If the Jets decide to go another route – and it seems unlikely they would, given the importance of tackle with Rodgers coming to town – defense likely gets the nod and headlines The Field. Linebackers Drew Sanders of Arkansas or Jack Campbell of Iowa may be a reach but not a big one.
