New York Jets First Round Review

In my latest mock, I have Florida DT Sharrif Floyd slipping to the Jets at #9. I am under the impression that, if Dion Jordan is not available at #9, the Jets will draft the best player available. The best available could be OT Eric Fisher, CB Dee Milliner, or even an OLB (Ansah/Mingo). With that said, If Floyd is sitting on the board when the Jets pick, I cannot see them passing him up. The last time a defensive tackle of Floyd’s caliber was available for the Jets to draft, was back in ’95, when the Jets passed on Warren Sapp. This time, the Jets will not make the same mistake.

Also, if the “Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay” trade goes down, and the Jets have the #13 overall pick, I believe they will snag OLB Ziggy Ansah as well. This would give the Jets a lot to look forward to (defensively) in the future. With Muhammad Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, Sharrif Floyd, Demario Davis and Ziggy Ansah, the Jets would have an excellent-looking front seven for years to come. These 5 players are young and very talented.

If the Jets can somehow pull this off, Rex will end up keeping his job… unless Mark Sanchez ruins EVERYTHING.

Here’s a highlight reel someone made, of Florida’s DT Sharrif Floyd…

 

As always, thanks for reading!

    PLEASE!!!!!! Someone with football knowledge, please explain to me why the Saints are taking a Guard when their defense needs so much help, there is still comparable defensive talent still on the board, and the Saints don’t have any need for a Guard for the foreseeable future. I see like 1 out of 20 people say they’ll take a guard and not one person who’s made that prediction has ever responded to my criticism and tried to justify making that pick. Please, whomever made this pick for the Saints please explain why the Saints, who had arguably the worst defense ever last year, will just say “screw the defense” and pick a position that is not needed what-so-ever.

    Thanks for the comment, John.
    You do make a good point. Their defense was historically bad last year so it would make a lot of sense if they do go defense in round one.
    However, the reason I have them taking a guard is because, I don’t think they anticipated Jonathon Cooper dropping to them, since he is an excellent prospect. And with Carl Nicks out of the picture, I can see them going best player available, IF they have Cooper graded higher than others that available
    can see them going with Kenny Vaccaro for the reason you stated, but they could also go best player available (offense or defense).

    • John

      Did you just forget that the Saints replaced Nicks with Grubbs? It was a 5 year deal. The Saints are set at Guard for the foreseeable future. You’re reasoning is just terrible to me. Jarvis Jones, Vacarro (like you said), Richardson, Elam, and Trufant are still there. The need to pick any one of those players far exceeds whatever difference you might think there is in “talent”, especially for Jones and Vacarro. If Vacarro, Jones, and Cooper are all there at 15, Cooper is the last to be considered of the three. Do you consider Cooper to be so much better than Jones or Vacarro that it’s a no brainer to choose Cooper? The Saints need to win now and their Guards are more than suitable to do that. Their defense, however, is not.

      • JETSerious

        Vaccaro makes sense. But take it easy, man. Lol. It’s a mock draft and I said you made a good point.

        • John

          I’m fine. I just don’t understand why people who do this kind of thing don’t really think it through. I mean, come on. Think about it. This is what you pretty much said with this mock. “For the Saints, let’s not take Jarvis Jones or Kenny Vaccarro, despite the Saints’ desperate need for defensive help and let’s have them take a Guard, despite them having a top 5 Guard tandem for another 4 years.” Doesn’t that just sound ridiculous? Mock drafts are utterly pointless. They’re just good for discussion sake. But when someone makes an obviously terrible choice that could have been avoided if just a little bit of thought went into the choice then I will gladly debate the reasonableness of that pick. If you don’t like a discussion on your mock draft then don’t do one. I’m cerebral and I like to debate.
