2015 NFL Draft: New York Jets Take Vic Beasley and Jay Ajayi


It’s time to look at another mock draft. They are coming at us left and right, in the hopes that someone is going to be able to predict what is going to happen in Chicago this spring at the draft.

Today we are taking a look at a draft from our friends at With the First Pick. This week, they took a shot at the first two rounds of the NFL draft. We will take a look at both draft picks, and my thoughts will be at the very end. First, with the sixth pick in the NFL draft, they have the Jets selecting Vic Beasley out of Clemson. Here is what “With the First Pick” had to say:

Quarterback Geno Smith should get one more year after finishing 2014 strong. Receiver Brandon Marshall was added to help the offense while corners Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie are back. All the defense needs now is an edge-rusher.

With the 38th pick in the draft, the Jets take Jay Ajayi from Boise State:

New head coach Todd Bowles is a defensive guy so the Jets will run the ball. Chris Ivory is okay but the Jets need an upgrade or someone along with him for the Jets to have a great ground game. And this is an upgrade that’s there for them to take in the second round.

The Jets would do well with a draft scenario such as this one. You know what I think of Vic Beasley. Beasley is the best pass rusher in the draft, and this addition could make the Jets defense take the jump from good to elite. I also like the choice of a complimentary running back in the second round. Personally, I disagree with the writer’s assessment of Chris Ivory, calling him OK. He is better than okay.

But, he needs help. The draft is likely going to be the spot where the Jets are going to search for a speed guy that can get to the edge. Ajayi would not be a bad choice, I just simply prefer some of the others.
