Interestingly the Jets got a 13th for Revis and selected him 14th in the 07 draft.
Mingo is faster and his instincts/desire may be better (and he most likely will be,) but as prospects they are/were similar.
I think Barkley will be a solid NFL QB
I'm not particularly interested in going QB in first round, but Barkley and Manuel are my favorites at the top of the QB class.
My two picks at 9 and 13
Mingo and Austin
But my list of favorites, in no particular order
QB Geno Smith
CB Dee Milliner
OLB Barkevious Mingo, Jarvis Jones, Dion Jordan
WR Tavon Austin
G Warmack and Cooper
Give me 2 of any of these and I'm happy
Also would love to trade down in the right situation with 1 or both picks
I think SF might go for something like 13 (Star) and 39 (Hunt) for 31, 34, 61 and 74. SF gets two top rated players at positions of need, The jets then get 5 players from 31-74 which is pretty much the value sweet spot in this draft.
Look at a top 100 list and see what 5 players you could add to the #9 pick to jump start the rebuild.
If I was a betting man I would say it will be Cooper and Mingo barring a trade back. I would either take Cooper and Mingo or Cooper and Austin if I wasn't able to trade back. If I was able to trade back, I'd try to trade #9 and draft Cooper at #13.
For trade scenarios:
If Lane Johnson falls to us at #9 look for them to even try to trade that pick to the dolphins or chargers. At #13, you would have Rams interested in Tavon and potentially the Steelers trying to jump the Saints for the pass rusher of their choice. Then there are the Falcons who need a CB and might try to make a run at Xavier Rhodes at #13. Also, the 49ers might have some interest in Star at #9.
I think at least one trade is offered to the Jets between those 2 picks.
I would love OL and OLB o TE. Either way I believe those two draft picks would make our team better THIS season. Those would both be low risk picks IMO. Safe picks. With RB's this team could be a very potent running team THIS season.
