    Do we have any idea WHO the Jets LIKE??

    The last couple years we've atleast had a rough idea (i think) of who the Jets were high on. So far all i've read was who we coveted before we grabbed Cromartie.. and few tidbits about ppl we might not like.

    Discuss.

    Lots of Jets mentions in yesterday's blog entry at draftinsider.net


    The final countdown before the official kick-off the of the 2010 NFL Draft and we have a ton of news, notes and visit information. Who are the New York Jets targeting? What about the Arizona Cardinals? And how high could Maurkice Pouncey be selected? This and much more!

    - Arizona State receiver Chris McGaha, who had been suffering with a bad hamstring since the ’09 season, finally ran for teams today. His forty time was 4.52 seconds (1.52 ten split), short shuttle 4.10 seconds and three cone 6.75 seconds.

    - So what did Demaryius Thomas exactly do at his pro-day on Sunday? For the most part he did stationary position drills and light route running, catching the ball very effectively. On the last play of the workout he caught a 60-yard pass running full speed, which impressed everyone on hand.

    - Since his pro-day of April 8th, Jon Asamoah has moved up draft boards and has firmly planted himself as the number two guard in this draft. It was not just the athleticism Asamoah displayed during the workout which impressed scouts but also the fact the session lasted almost an hour and a half yet Asamoah was ready for more. Several sources have told us he’s going to come off the board early in round two and could end up with the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions or Kansas City Chiefs. The New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, both possessing multiple picks in round two, are also targeting Asamoah in the frame.

    - How high could Florida center Maurkice Pouncey be selected? Conventional wisdom has the Pittsburgh Steelers taking Pouncey with the 18th selection of round one, but we hear he could go as early as pick 11 to the Denver Broncos who are looking for a guard and center, both positions Pouncey can handle.

    - Another team that loves Pouncey are the New York Jets. Offensive line coach Bill Callahan has told people the Jets would pounce on Pouncey were he to slide to the 29th selection, which won’t happen.

    - The Washington Redskins have been shopping Albert Haynesworth the past few weeks and both sides hope a deal is done this week. Reports have inferred the New York Jets could be in the mix to trade for Haynesworth but we can tell you the big defensive lineman has told people he wants no part of playing for a 3-4 defense. The Jets may look another direction late in the draft. The team brought Georgia defensive lineman Kade Weston in for a visit recently. They like his athleticism and upside, as do we, and the Jets think Weston is a solid late round choice/developmental prospect. Weston has also visited with the Houston Texans.

    - Jason Worilds is another player receiving a lot of interest from the New York Jets. Besides New York Worilds been on visits to see the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots besides working out with the Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars. Yet it was his visit with the Jets that really stood out to Worilds. He spent a significant amount of his time meeting with head coach Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, both impressing the Virginia Tech junior.

    - Cornerback Kareem Jackson has been a busy man recently. He’s had workouts with the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals but the three teams to keep an eye on are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets. If neither of the top interior offensive lineman are available when the Steelers pick at 18 (Iupati or Pouncey) the Steelers could look to Jackson. Prior to the draft we reported that Jackson was preparing for the combine with Donnie Henderson, recently named defensive back coach for the Cardinals. The team will be looking for secondary help and Henderson has been pulling for Jackson. Finally, the New York sports media wrote several articles about Rex Ryan attending Alabama’s pro-day workout on March 10th to watch defensive lineman Terrence Cody. We can tell you the team was on hand primarily to see Jackson. The Jets not only brought Jackson in for an official visit and traveled to Alabama to privately workout the athletic cornerback, but general manager Mike Tannenbaum had dinner with Jackson the night before Bama’s pro-day.

    - Another player the Arizona Cardinals really like is Sean Weatherspoon. Sources have told us at this point Weatherspoon looks like the selection at pick number 26.

    - More and more teams like what they see in Daniel Te’o-Nesheim of Washington. The defensive end has the mentality and instincts to play over tackle as a 3-4 linebacker but also can put his hand on the ground during pass rush downs. He’s been moving up draft boards and seemingly the New England Patriots, who brought Te’o-Nesheim in for a visit, may roll the dice on him in round three.

    - If they don’t take a cornerback with the first pick of the draft the Cleveland Browns have targeted two players from competing PAC Ten schools in the third frame. The team likes both Alterraun Verner of UCLA and Kevin Thomas of USC. Thomas, who is also drawing interest from the New York Jets, was in Cleveland for a visit weeks ago.

    - Another interesting prospect the Browns like is Vic Hall of Virginia. During his sophomore season in 2007 Hall looked to us on film as a top-flight prospect. His play in 2008 was uninspired and Hall lost his starting job when Chris Cook returned last season. As a senior Cook was used at receiver, return specialist as well as in the secondary. He’s shown the skill to play in the past but the question is can he regain prior form. The Baltimore Ravens were at UVA last Friday to workout both Cook and Hall.

    i guess we'd have to like it but it would be dissapointing to have such draft with so many big names and to come home with kareem jackson. He's basically Justin Miller with less speed.

    dismissing the fact Jackson is twice as physical as miller ever was in coverage and unlike miller, Jackson can actually make plays when his back is to the ball....

    better than Jmill as a cover guy, worse than jmill as a returner. not as fast. physical = He gets tons of PI penalties. I'd rather have arenas in round 4 than jackson in round 1.

    CBNY, I see Jackson more as 61 option than 29. Am I dead wrong?

    the answer is yes at this point- he'll be long gone by 61...solid corner now who could be tremendous two years down the road...

    Interesting, Kevin Thomas hey. i was actually gonna put in my final mock, but went with K. Lewis instead. maybe i'll change that. Think Thomas is still there in the 6th?

    Good to see my Pouncey infatuation isn't completely unfounded, though i doubt he'll be there for us. a month ago he was top of the 2nd round... now i've seen him as high as DEN.

    Thanks. I thought he was in that 3rd tier of CBs that would go mid to late 2nd (2nd tier in the late 1st, and 1st tier in the mid first).

    Kevin Thomas is a really nice fit with us...

    Pouncey would be a nice, relatively safe pick.

    CB, what, if anything, happened to Dominique Franks?

    Big fan of Jackson and Worilds. Sadly, the public praise probably means both players will be taken by other clubs.

    thus far...

    1- haden,

    2- Wilson/McCourty/Jackson,

    3- Robinson/Cook/Spievey/Verner/Cox/Thomas....

    ghee/franks/murphy slipping a bit....Owusu-Ansah likely to move to safety....

    not much going on between the ears....apparent on film....constantly blew coverage assignements...big, strong, physical but struggles unless he's facing the action....

    perrish cox is my cb binkie. He can really ball. If they can go "whoever falls to 29" in round 1 and perrish cox in round 2 i'd be a happy camper.

    Sounds like Talib on the Bucs when he was coming out.

    I am so with you on Pouncey! That pick makes so much sense for us.I've been thinking for weeks he was guy we wanted,and last two moves only reinforced it(Jason Taylor and Santonio Holmes).May need to talk to Jags @#10 to get it done...sounds like they may want out of that spot. Also,other guy who would be "home run" is Eric Berry,but would probably need to get to #4 for that.Skins need picks,would they take our 1st and 2nd to do it? Unless somebody who really wants Clausen there and blows them away,that may work. Call me crazy,but Tanny has shocked us all before.

    If I were you, I'd be rooting Pouncey to go anywhere but NY, lest you be exposed to an entire day of annoying "pounce" puns in the NY papers.
