News did come out yesterday that the Jets made sure they have Trent Richardson’s contact info in case they make a trade. I do believe that Mike Tannenbaum is going to make a big time effort to get him. This is a big year for Tanny, and I think he will swing for the fences, but the price will be too high. There is also talk about maybe Mark Barron here as well, as well as Michael Floyd, the receiver out of Notre Dame. I truly do not see them going offense in the first round, although I believe Michael Floyd would be a successful player with the New York Jets. They are going to go with the defensive side of the ball, and I believe it will be a pass rusher. See our preview of him here.

With 16.5 sacks over the last two years, he would make a great addition.  Unless the Jets trade up for a Quinton Coples or a Melvin Ingram, which is possible, this is where I believe they will go.
