Grade: B+

GM Joe Douglas quietly had an outstanding debut draft. He added value via two trade-downs and bought low on former second-round cornerback Quincy Wilson by sending Indianapolis a sixth-round pick. Becton and (especially) Mims could have gone earlier, while Davis and Zuniga are both very talented. Hall was a borderline first-round pick before an ankle injury. Another receiver would have been nice, but the Jets should be beaming after bolstering the O-line.

Best pick

Despite having a major need, the Jets were very patient in a deep receiving class. They were rewarded when Mims fell to them at No. 59, even after they traded down. That's great value for a fringe first-round prospect, and Mims has the skill set to be an X receiver in the NFL.

Upside pick

There aren't many players with more upside than Becton. The biggest player in the draft, he moves incredibly well for a 364-pounder, with light feet and the balance to square up much smaller players in the open field. He could become a star at left or right tackle.
