2012 NFL Mock Draft: Whitney Mercilus to the Jets?

The Next Jets Edge Pass Rusher? Possibly. Picture from US Presswire

A new version of the mock draft has been released by the Sporting News. Who do they have the Jets selecting on the first round? The young man we profiled at the Jet Press yesterday, Whitney Mercilus. Take a look and I will comment on the other side.

There are a lot of positives to this pick if it happens. He is clearly an active pass rusher and can reak havoc on opponents. 9 forced fumbles is clear evidence of that. Some say he lacks some technique and may be out of position a lot, and that makes me wonder. Maybe this guy coming out before his senior year is not NFL ready yet?
