Jets could certainly use a WR like Brandin Cooks who has the ability to open things up on the offense.

26 hours away from NFL draft my friends. The excitement is off the charts. Well, also the over analysis is off the charts. This extra two weeks as made everyone go on draft overload as well.

It makes you want to jump ahead right now and choose a football team, if you don’t have one for life already. So, in this mock, the week of the draft, who has Pete chosen for the New York Jets? Another well-known candidate, that’s who…..

ODELL BECKHAM,WR, OREGON ST

This is a guy that wasn’t on the short list at the beginning, from what little we could ascertain from Idzik’s employees at Florham Park. But he is now. Let’s look a what Pete had to say about him here:

He got to the correct position on the screen where only he could get.  He’s a fast guy that can get down the field fast.  He ran the 40 under 550 seconds.

Take a look at this year’s crop of wide receivers:

fastest turned in by any WR at the combine.

Dropping fast
Jarvis Landry, LSU: Stock plummeted when he ran a 4.77 at the combine, then left early due to injury.

Small-school wonder
Jeff Janis, Saginaw Valley: Big, physical, reliable target who was a three-year starter and has respectable speed (4.42).

Top 5 tight ends

No.=Name=School=Ht.=Wt.

1. Eric Ebron*=North Carolina=6-4=245
Poor pro day but still the class of a thin group.

2. Jace Amaro*=Texas Tech=6-5=260
Big target put up big numbers in a wide-open offense.

3. Troy Niklas*=Notre Dame=6-7=270
Converted defensive end who excels as a blocker.

4. C.J. Fiedorowicz=Iowa=6-7=265
Lack of explosiveness is made up for with sure hands.

5. Austin Seferian-Jenkins*=Washington=6-6=275
Won the Mackey Award as the country’s top tight end.

Late riser
Niklas: He’s no Tyler Eifert, but a solid combine and offseason have answered questions about his speed and handsy.

Dropping fast
Seferian-Jenkins: A DUI last year and foot surgery that forced him to miss the combine and pro day aren’t helping his case.

Small-school wonder boy Reggie Jordan, Missouri Western: A whopping 33 percent of his catches in college (17 out of 52) went for touchdowns..

    Uhm… Beckham went to LSU and I’m pretty sure everyone at the combine ran their 40 in less than 550 seconds…
