Time for another mock draft. Mike Maccagnan takes center stage this spring, officially taking the lead in his first NFL draft as a general manager. Mike has a lot to do, and it is going to start with this draft.
The Jets need help at wide receiver, quarterback, offensive line, ..etc. Where are they going to draft? Well, tonight, we are going to look at a recent mock draft put out by our friends at The Bleacher Report.
In their recent mock, the Jets take a receiver. But, they do not draft the man above, Amari Cooper. He is already gone with the number five pick. So who do the Jets take with the sixth pick of the NFL draft?

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
Kevin White is not far behind Cooper in terms of stock now.
A gaudy 109 catches for 1,447 yards and 10 touchdowns tends to do that for a prospect. On film, White is stronger than in years past and does a better job of getting open—two traits that catapult him to the top 10.
At No. 6, the New York Jets will make the move. The quarterback riddle remains unsolved, but whomever it ends up being will come to love the pick.

For the entire mock, take a look here.
I can’t argue with this pick here. With Cooper gone, adding another wide receiver makes some sense. They could draft offensive line here, but they can’t go wrong at wide receiver either.
What do you think?
