In the simulation, the New York Jets surprisingly traded up from No. 23, presumably to grab who they thought was the best available wide receiver before Cincinnati hit the clock. However, rather than Jaylen Waddle or Ja’Marr Chase, the Jets pegged DeVonta Smith as their WR1.
I don’t think Smith is worth quite this much, especially in a deep receiver class. But the Jets badly need receiver stability, and aside from his size, there aren’t many bad things you can say about Smith. He’s athletic, he’s tough, and he’s incredibly workmanlike, both on and off the field.
