3/7/10 Mock Draft
Iím not going to do any trade up or trade down scenarios because those are really unpredictable. Iíll talk about hypothetical scenarios within my picks though. If we pick up OJ Atowge, my draft wouldnít really change much, but it would make this defense even more beast.
CB Antonio Cromartie
OLB Adalius Thomas
WR Laverneus Coles
1 : OLB Sergio Kindle, Texas
Sergio Kindle would be a nice pick late in the first round. I think heíll turn out to be a good player and help out our pass rush tremendously. I know I said Iím not going to talk about trade down scenarios here, but the Jets should really trade down here. If we could trade down 5-10 picks, pick up Nate Allen, and a fourth or fifth round pick, Iíd be really happy.
WR Golden Tate, WR Damian Williams, NT Terrence Cody, DE Jared Odrick, RB Ryan Matthews
2 : NT Cam Thomas, North Carolina
Developmental NT that can learn from Kris Jenkins for a few years. He could switch off playing DE and NT to give Jenkins a break. He should bring a lot of versatility to our line. We should start thinking towards the future and I think Cam Thomas is going to be a great player a few years down the line.
DE Arthur Jones, S Morgan Burnett, CB Brandon Ghee
4 : RB Legarrette Blount, Oregon
We need another RB to make up for the loss of Jones and Iím not sure if Chauncey Washington is the future. Blount was a fringe first round talent before stupidly punching an opposing player after a loss. He provides tremendous value in the fourth round.
DE Austen Lane, S Larry Assante, S Myron Rolle
5 : WR Eric Decker, Minnesota
Decker is exactly what this team needs right now. A tough, gritty receiver who will always work hard and wouldnít be afraid to go across the middle of the field to make a tough catch. Heíd be an instant upgrade at slot WR for us.
6 : FB Rashawn Jackson, Virginia
Tony Richardson is old as **** and we need to start searching for a replacement. People donít realize how important Richardson is to our offense.
7 : P Zoltan Mesko, Michigan
This guy is the last pick in all of my drafts because heís an awesome punter, has a great leg, and has the best name ever.
If we can get Blount in exchange for Kerry. I'd be pretty happy plus he'd fit Rex's vision of Ground and Pound to a tee :D

I think the Jets will definitely come out of this draft with one CB, but I didn't have that pick in this draft for that reason.
LeGarrette could definitely turn out to be a brandon jacobs style big back. With Green and LEon, that would be a sick trio. I would love to swap out earl Earl Thomas for sergio kendle though

If the Jets were to stay at their current spot, I would take Kindle at this point.
Great mock. Love every single pick. I do think that we are two DBs short of where we will be on opening day, we don't HAVE to draft them.

Like I said, I don't see us staying put at every position either, but no one can accurately predict those trades, so I just stuck with where they were at.
This is awesome except for the 2nd rounder. Switch in Burnett for Thomas and it works for me.
IMO, we're screwed if Eric Smith is starting. Nothing good can come from starting 2 white safeties.
What woodside said, I would LOVE to get Blount out of the trade with ARZ, it'd be well worth it!!!!!
