Rich Cirminiello of College Football News gives his take on the targets in the draft for the New York Jets. He likes Courtney Upshaw for the Jets in round one, although the talk on him has waned a bit.
“The talk has started to wane a little over the last week or so, but Upshaw’s a great fit for Rex Ryan’s system. I love his personality, he’s got a great motor, he has that kind of versatility where I think the Jets can move him to a couple of different positions, and he comes with that championship banner from Alabama.”

He’s still leaning towards Upshaw, although he sees them going after Whitney Mercilus, Chandler Jones, or Michael Floyd.
