The New York Jets addressed their second biggest need in the second round, as they traded down from #48 overall to #59 and selected WR Denzel Mims from Baylor. Mims, 6'3", 215 lbs, ran a blazing 4.38 40-yard dash at the scouting combine. He caught 66 passes for 1,020 yards, 12 TDs in 14 starts as a senior. He had a similar season as a sophomore when he caught 61 passes for 1,087 yards, 8 TDs in 12 games.
Mims possesses an ideal combination of size and speed. He can be a true number one receiver, which is something the Jets did not have with departed Robby Anderson.
The Jets received an additional 3rd round pick from Seattle, so they now have three 3rd down selections: #68, #79 and #101 overall.
