Bucky Brooks Mock Draft 6.0: The New York Jets Select...............


As the final days leading up to the draft are finally here, mercifully, we see the conjecture and predictions begin to summarize. The mocks start to hone in on specific players, and the variations decrease until there they are barely discernible, and then we have our framework of predictions.

We have been following the choices of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, and he yesterday released his sixth and likely final mock of the draft season. So who did Bucky choose for his final mock draft of the season for the New York Jets?

MARQISE LEE, WR, USC

Adding an explosive playmaker like Lee would help Geno Smith and Michael Vick become better playmakers from the pocket.

His whole draft recap can be found here.

Brooks isn’t exactly going out on a limb here, as Marqise Lee is a name that has been associated with the team all off-season long.

In his scenario, Brooks likely has it right on the money, with the other bigger receivers gone, as well as the two cornerbacks, Marqise Lee is the most likely to be a Jet in this draft, with the only significant alternative being Brandin Cooks out of Oregon State.

But the Jets would do fine here.

    Lee is a mistake at #18, in my book. I think they can do better myself. I see them trading up or down from at 18 myself, but we’ll know Thursday for sure! This is a huge draft for the Jets, with 12 picks in a historically deep draft, they have the opportunity to radically infuse talent to a wanting roster. They can change the face of the entire organization for years to come! I think the most important thing this year is for the Jets not to “stretch” on their picks early on, BPA early and if they choose to gamble on a player, do it later into the mid and late rounds. With 6 picks in the top 150, the Jets will be a much improved team by next week! Ace this baby John!

    Thanks for the pre draft stories Allen. Though we often differ on approach, and players involved, I’ve enjoyed the insights, and I know we both want the Jets to improve via this draft! I can’t wait for the weekend! Thanks for all the pieces….keep them coming! Go Jets!!
