u can draft them to play zone as rookies. drafting them to play bump/run is a different beast.
en sum - no drafted cb would really help the jets secondary this year....it is at least unlikely...
we could make the same argument about DL and OLB. there are maybe 5 OLB all time who came in and dominated from the 3-4 OLB position as a rookie. guys like Merriman and Matthews are exceptions. Similarly most DL take years to develop, guys like Suh are exceptions.
