10. New York Jets (via Seattle Seahawks): DeMarvin Leal, EDGE, Texas A&M
They landed one of the best defensive backs with their first pick in this mock and now the New York Jets are back on the clock at No. 10. This is the second day one pick they obtained from the Seattle Seahawks for Jamal Adams and it’s safe to say New York won this bet.
No one expected this to be a top-10 pick but after a rough season for Seattle, the Jets get themselves a shot at a premium player as they take DeMarvin Leal from Texas A&M.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 290-pounds, Leal is built like a defensive tackle but moves like a defensive end. That flexibility is what Keith Sanchez of The Draft Network really liked when studying the Aggies defender.
"“At Texas A&M, Leal aligned at every position along the defensive line. His natural strength and power made him a dominant player at the IDL position. He is also athletic enough to give good pass-rush reps when lined up as an edge defender. Leal has rare athleticism and power that allows him to play all over the field and be an effective player.” — Sanchez, The Draft Network"
Robert Saleh has had success with similar defensive linemen while working as the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers and adding Leal helps him begin to build a similar line in New York.
