Jets Fans React to NFL Mocks Recent Mock Draft via Twitter

By Alan Schechter

For this week’s version of “TweetSpeak”, instead of bringing you one of my own questions, we bring you a different discussion, courtesy of

This past Tuesday, our friends from the NFL Mocks crew put out a three round mock draft which included trades.  Follow the link to read the entire draft, here are the picks for our New York Jets:

9. Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU

13. (via trade for Darrelle), Geno Smith, QB, UVA

39. Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A & M

72. Jonathan Franklin, RB, UCLA

Well, instead of me giving my evaluation of this mock, I decided to use this mock as this week’s topic, giving you all the chance to Tweet in and give your thoughts. First, I bring you a series of Tweets from 1 reader that needed more than 140 to give his feelings:

@thejetpress NYJ-love mingo at moore at 39.both fill holes and provide BPA mentality.i dont love franklin at 72 but value is there

@thejetpress hate geno @ 13.dont think overdrafting at qb would fit not a huge tavon fan but he is there @ 13 & that is better fit

— Tj Tkac (@tjt_25) April 10, 2013

@thejetpress i think the fins might be looking to move up but millner is there & fits browns need.and loved see Keenan allen in 1st round

— Tj Tkac (@tjt_25) April 10, 2013

All fair points by TJ. I agree, Geno at #13 would be way overvaluing him. I don’t really see him as a top 10-15 pick. I don’t see any of the QB’s fitting that distinction.

@thejetpress If Miliner and Mingo are both available, Miliner esp w/ no Revis

Good point by John, would love Miliner if the Revis trade eventually does happen.

@thejetpress think lions take milner leaving ansah for us dont want gino @ 13 and y take moore in 2 if we take olb @ 9

Well, our friend @hashtagfrankie will not be happy, but the resounding opinion is that people like Mingo at #9, but don’t like Geno at #13. Fair enough.

We will do it again, with more “TweetSpeak” next week.
