2019 NFL Mock Draft: New York Jets Select DE/OLB Josh Allen at No. 3

Josh Allen is a Top 10 pick for the second year in a row.

NFL: Combine Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

With the 3rd pick in the 2019 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the New York Jets select...

Josh Allen, DE/OLB, Kentucky

The selection and write-up were made by Robo Dawg:

Josh Allen is the best player available, and also fills a position of need for the NY Jets. They nearly landed Anthony Barr, until he had a change of heart. Now they can get a pass rusher at the top of the draft with Josh Allen, who most likely projects as an OLB in the Jets 3-4 system.

Allen has tremendous flexibility and a record of self-improvement. His improvement from 2017 to 2018 was remarkable and the Jets will expect a similar commitment to self improvement as he integrates in the NFL. Most notably, he’ll have to work on his technique - especially with his counters and hand technique. When he perfects his technique, his tremendous motor and athleticism could make him a top tier NFL OLB. His superior flexibility also makes him viable in pass coverage, enabling him to be a 3-down LB imposing uncertainty on opposing teams blocking/route running schemes.

Pokorny: “Gregg Williams gets an edge rusher to work with for his first season in New York, and it’s also the pick that our Jets affiliate agreed with in the SB Nation writers mock draft.”

The Oakland Raiders are up next, led by mrwhitman.
