Evaluating Each Player From the New York Jets' 2020 NFL Draft Class

From left tackle Mekhi Becton to wide receiver Denzel Mims, look back at how each pick from the New York Jets 2020 NFL Draft class has fared in two NFL seasons.

After the Jets' historic loss to the Bills in Week 18, finishing the season with a 4-13 record, New York's general manager Joe Douglas was asked about his team's 2020 draft class. 

"I would say about the entire draft class, we’re in year two of their pro careers and I would say at this checkpoint in their race, probably not where it needs to be as a group," Douglas told reporters a few weeks ago. "But, at this point, there is no one giving up on these players. Look, every player develops differently, at different rates. I’m sure if you ask some of these guys, they would say they’re disappointed in their season, but at the end of the day, no one is giving up on the players. 

"[Head coach Robert Saleh] certainly is not giving up on those guys, we fully expect them to come back in the offseason ready to roll and ready to improve."

The fact of the matter, however, is that New York's 2020 draft class has been more disastrous than anything else. It looks even worse for Douglas' first draft class when you compare that group to the 2021 class and how much promise they showed this past season.
