Jets trade the #30 pick and their 5th to the Arizona Cardinals for the #38, #70, #137, and their 7th. Cardinals use the pick on fallen QB Ryan Mallett.
Jets trade picks #69, #93, and their 6th to the Houston Texans for picks #42 and #138.
#38 -Akeem Ayers - As far back as I can remember...or a year after in '04...a kickass LB prospect has dropped into the early 2nd. In '04 it was Karlos Dansby, and to follow would be guys like DeMeco Ryans, David Harris, and Lamarr Woodley. Ayers is a guy I've talked about so this isn't so different except that we got him through a bs trade I just made up. Still, I think he has do it all potential and is one of those guys who really can be as good as he wants to be.
#42 - Kyle Rudolph - The Jets enter the world of the legit 2 TE offense. Rudolph is drafted as a bigger, more well rounded competition for Dustin Keller. He plays the Gronkowski to Keller's Hernandez. Will help Sanchez out considering we'll probably lose one of the WRs. Really strong talent for the position and has top tier potential.
4th: Deunta Williams - 4th round has been pretty good to the Jets. Williams has injury problems, but he's also a 2nd round (maybe even first) talent when healthy. Legit FS prospect who can hit and move when he's on the field. Might go later, but for this year's crappy safety class I like him.
137 - Joseph Barksdale - Forgotten mammoth LSU tackle. Better prospect than his teammate Herman Johnson, who got drafted, and has long term potential at RT.
138 - Kenrick Ellis - Because they can, can, can!
7th - Aldrick Robinson - Might go higher on draft day, but has awesome pro potential. Alternate 7th rounders would be someone like Powe (why does no one like him?) and Colby Whitlock, amongst hundreds of others probably.
