NFL Insider Ian Rappaport has been, as expected, working the phones on overdrive as the draft has been approaching. Of late, much of what he has uncovered has been New York Jets’ related. Take a look at another tweet of his:

So what do we think here? Beckham is a guy that the Jets would be more than happy to draft in the first round tomorrow night.
Here are his stats from college just as a reminder:
Receiving & Rushing
Beckham would certainly fit right in and be an asset. We have seen him over quite a few of the recent mock drafts. He and Brandin Cooks seem to be the most prevalent choices for the Jets. I don’t think anyone will be really “upset” if Beckham is the first choice.
My only question would be whether the Jets would actually need to move up. I haven’t seen a lot of scenarios where Beckham has gone higher than 18, simply because of how deep the class is at the position. If Beckham is the guy that the Jets are looking at, why not stay at 18 to do it?
What do you guys think?
