Bryan Fischer Mock Draft: The New York Jets Select......

Bryan Fischer is a writer and analyst for “College Football 24/7″. He has put out his first mock draft of the season this week. Here is who he has chosen for our New York Jets:

KYLE FULLER, CB, VIRGINIA TECH

Fuller’s toughness and versatility fit what Rex Ryan needs from a cornerback in this division.

Take a look at his entire mock draft by clicking here.

So, what do we think of a choice like this?

The Jets did just sign Dimitri Patterson at corner, so the need isn’t as immediate as it was just a few days ago.  Still, bringing in competition does make everyone better, so it can’t hurt.  He could earn the starting job, or push Patterson and Milliner to be better than they have been before.

Brandin Cooks is still available in this scenario.  The Jets do need playmakers, and Cooks would fit that bill, as would Odell Beckham, and Marqise Lee, who are also available in this mock.

Here are his stats from college:

Defense & Fumbles

Career Virginia Tech 129 44 173 23.5 4.5 6 10 1.7 0 32 0 0 0 4

He is a physical player, which is something Rex Ryan would absolutely love.

Kyle Fuller would be a good choice, but I am not convinced that he would be a good choice at #18. Offense might still be the better way to go.
