Pete Prisco Mock Draft: The New York Jets Select...............


As we know, ’tis the season of Mock Drafts. Especially with the real draft not until May this season, the mock drafts will be everywhere. If you are interested in football at all, you will be able to find a mock draft somewhere. Here we are no different.

Pete Prisco is a CBS NFL analyst that we hear a lot from, especially on Twitter. He has put up his updated mock draft, let’s see who he has for the Jets in this version…….

JUSTIN GILBERT, CB, OKLAHOMA ST.

They have a big hole at corner and this kid could fill it.

Take a look at his entire draft here.

Yes, the Jets have a hole at corner, and Gilbert is touted as the best one in the draft.  No, I don’t see it playing out this way.

With the signing of Dimitri Patterson, and the return of players such as Darrin Walls, I tend to believe that the Jets have the amount of competition at the position they are looking for.

Also, with weapons still on the board such as Eric Ebron, Brandin Cooks, Marqise Lee, and others, the Jets are going to go offense in round one.

Interesting idea by Pete but I just don’t agree.

    I can see the Jets picking a CB in the first round (again), because Rex will freak if he doesn’t have his corners. Woody would hear about it ad nauseum and the last thing Idzik needs, should he want a new coach next year, is an excuse not to fire Rex. Not to mention that as far as excuses go, its a good one.

    I can see the Jets trading down, and picking a guard, too.

    Sadly, if Gilbert is there the jets will almost be forced to take him because no matter how many CB bodies they presently have on their roster there are zero proven NFL starters. Yes Milliner emerged late last year and had a few good games.But that hardly qualifies him as a #1 CB. The problem is our new GM got caught asleep at the switch when the free agency period opened and was obviously unprepared for the flurry and pace that ensued.There were 5 or 6 corners better than any body on our current roster that had we signed would have given us more flexibility in next months draft. My concern with Idzik’s penny pinching ways is that it may become a red flag to agents and their players that the jets are not a viable option when they hit free agency as they are simply not competitive in terms of money.
