It’s Sunday night, and I thought, as we head into the new week, we would whet your appetite a little bit.

The NFL draft is upcoming, and the mock drafts are coming fast and furious. The Jets do have holes they need to plug via the draft, and one of them is for a DE/OLB that can rush the passer. To tell you the truth, the Jets really haven’t’ had one of those since they traded John Abraham, and if they did, the Jets defense would be on the verge of dominance.

A lot of the draft experts have the Jets addressing this issue with their 9th pick overall in the draft.  Dion Jordan (pictured right), Barkevious Mingo, and Jarvis Jones are three of the bigger names associated with the Jets and this pick.

Now for the part where we whet your appetite.  As the draft comes closer, and we hear about which players the Jets have paid visits to, we will bring you more detailed player analysis.

For now, we bring you some highlights of these big three, so you can take a look and see whom you like the best.

First, is Dion Jordan:

Now we have some clips of Jarvis Jones:

And finally, Barkevious Mingo:

Those were actually from one particular game on Mingo, but still fun to watch.

We hope you enjoyed these, and have started to form your own opinions as to whom we should draft at #9 come April.
