K-Ro's Mock - The Rebuilding Begins
Jets trade Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccs for pick #1, #73, and a conditional pick in next years draft that can be high as a 2nd rounder.
Why? Trading Revis accelerates a rebuild plan. Trading Revis essentially gives you another draft class to work with, and also gives cap flexibility for other needy positions.
Jets trade 2014 conditional pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for QB Nick Foles. (High as a 1st Low as a 5th)
Jets trade pick #39 and #73 to the Green Bay Packers for pick #26 and a 6th rounder.
1. A) - Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU
- Why? With Dion Jordan off the board, Damontre Moore and Jarvis Jones with unimpressive shows at the combine, and Ansah as a pure 4-3 End, that leaves Barkevious Mingo. Mingo is a fantastic player, and I can understand why he didn't put up the numbers at LSU. He was used with his hand in the dirt for most of the time at LSU. With a guy with as quick as a first step that Mingo has, and with a weaker upper body, he's best fit as a 3-4 OLB, with a guy like Wilkerson taking on blocks in front of him. His strength is a question yeah, but throw him in the weight room on a weight gainer, that can change very quickly. He has an explosive first step and a frightening spin move. Bingo on Mingo.
1. B) - Tavon Austin, WR, WVU
- Why? I know it's against the grain, but we need a playmaker. It's that simple. We constructed one of the most boring offenses in football last year, thanks to the likes of an awful receiving core. We haven't had a pro bowl WR in a decade. Austin can be that guy. Make you miss, get me in space, throw me outside, inside the slot, in the backfield. The guy is a playmaker, and doesn't have any injury concerns. Never missed a game in his life.
1. C) Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
- Why? Once again, a team desperate of playmakers goes after another. I see a little Tony Gonzo in his game. Straight up flies for the ball and catches it at the highest point every time. The guy would be a double double rebounding the ball. He gets up at gets it. Great hands, can block better than advertised.
3. Barrett Jones, C/G, Alabama
Why? Barrett Jones would be a perfect fit for the organization. He is a lunch pale type player on the OL, something we've been desperate for. He's agile, and can feast in the ZBS. Can throw him all over the line, and can be successful.
4. Tyrann Mathieu, FS, LSU
Why? I had a tough time deciding between Rambo whom is a favorite of mine, and Mathieu. I like Mathieu at this spot early in the 4th as he is a jack of all trades guy that probably is more suited for Safety in the NFL. The guy is a ball hawk, and has the instincts and demeanor you want on a Safety. Sees the plays well, and reads defenses, good tackler, and can put on some size with the move to safety.
5. Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook
Why? Guy can do it all at HB. Run, Catch, Block. Had a former HS teammate of mine that plays with him now, and constantly raves about how unbelievable he is. 1 cut runner with great vision. Sleeper.
6. Brandon McGee, CB, Miami
McGee is an athletic versatile CB that will slide due to all the high praised corners in this draft. Love McGee
6. Zeke Motta, S, Notre Dame
Motta comes in to compete at SS with Allen and Bush. It's not definite both of them even make the roster, so Motta adds good depth. You know how Rex loves his Safety's.
7. Anthony McCloud, DL, FSU
Big, beefy, DL, that can defend the run, and be viable depth.
