NFL Power Rankings | Jets Rise to the Top 10 in Post-Draft Rankings

Below is a compilation of NFL power rankings. The views expressed are not representative of any Jets personnel.

Sports Illustrated – 10th
“This is an Aaron Rodgers-quarterbacked team, and I know that many of you view the Jets as perpetually superfluous. But I think if everyone remains healthy, this team is going to be seriously good. OT Olu Fashanu didn’t change my mind all that much. Hopefully he can be developed and eased into a starting role, or Morgan Moses can play guard until someone is pressed into playing one position out of necessity. I liked that the Jets invested in physical backs and receivers who can help alleviate the backfield pressure on Rodgers. When offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and Rodgers were at their best together, Rodgers had a stable of dependable backs and receivers who would break tackles off quick catches.”

USA Today – 10th
“All due respect to new QB2 Tyrod Taylor, this team is one Aaron Rodgers injury away from a 14th consecutive season finishing shy of the playoffs – which would extend the current NFL mark. Yet reloaded and reinforced, it’s also one vintage Rodgers performance from its first Super Bowl appearance in 56 years.”

CBS Sports – 11th
“It’s go-time for the Jets. With Aaron Rodgers coming back at age 40, this has to be the year. They have all the pieces.”

FOX Sports – 13th
“Counting on the health of a 40-year-old quarterback recovering from an Achilles tear is a scary place to be. That said, I think the Jets have done all the right things to get ready for Aaron Rodgers’ second attempt in New York. Beefing up the offensive tackle spot with Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses was an amazing decision, and I’m so proud of general manager Joe Douglas for insuring those guys with No. 11 overall pick Olu Fashanu. Douglas even signed a competent backup quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. That’s how you protect an aging QB. We know the defense will be top-notch. Now, if Rodgers can just deliver the rest.

Yahoo Sports – 17th
“Robert Saleh should have the Jets’ defense thriving again, even with losses like Bryce Huff. The real question comes down to how Aaron Rodgers fares after returning from a torn Achilles. The 40-year-old QB will have Garrett Wilson, Mike Williams and Malachi Corley as his top wideouts.

Bleacher Report – 17th
“Once again, expectations are high for the Aaron Rodgers-led New York Jets in 2024. They added passing-game weapons for Rodgers and help at the offensive tackle positions in both free agency and the draft. The Jets have centered just about every offseason decision around their four-time MVP.”

The Athletic – 17th
“The Jets drafted an Aaron Rodgers support staff, getting offensive tackle Olu Fashanu, wide receiver Malachi Corley and running back Braelon Allen with their first three picks. Fashanu might not start right away, but he has that kind of talent, and Corley should join Mike Williams and Garrett Wilson in the starting lineup immediately.”
