    my mock draft - Jets picks only

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/201...-value-chart-6

    I'm basing my selections on who will be available with each pick according to PFW's chart listed above.

    Round 1 - Cameron Heyward DE - Ohio State University

    Jets need an infusion of premium young talent along the defensive line. Heyward is a prototypical 5 tech. Shows up in big games and was a leader on the d. Stayed all five years. Low risk factor as well.

    Round 3 - Chris Carter OLB - Fresno State University

    everyone knows the Jets need to upgrade their pass rush. Carter is a nice developmental prospect who should be able to immediately provide help with the pass rush. Guy flies off the edge.

    Round 4 - Ronald Johnson WR - USC

    With the threat of losing Edwards or Holmes in FA, I looked to draft a WR who may have some potential down the road. RoJo was overshadowed his first couple of years by other talented receivers but may have his best football ahead of him the way Steve Smith did coming out of the same program.

    Round 5 - Ugo Chinasa OLB - Oklahoma State University

    Another developmental OLB prospect. I prefer taking chances on conversion picks later on in the draft. Chinasa is a great athlete who never quite put it all together in college. His best football may be ahead for him.

    Round 6 - Jerrell Powe NT - Ole Miss

    I have a hard time believing that he will drop this far, but PFW had him available, so I ran up to the podium with a smile. Arguably the top rated NT prospect coming into the season, reportedly had a down senior year with a mediocre off season leading up to the draft. Notwithstanding, a very good talent at a position of need this far down in the draft.

    Round 7 - Deunta Williams S - North Carolina

    Good safety prospect who drops due to suffering an ankle injury in his bowl game that prevented people from properly evaluating him. Again, wonderful talent at this round and a potential future starter.

    I'm not a big fan of the two DE/OLBs, particularly Carter in the 3rd. Heyward + Powe alone would have me excited. Throw in Williams in the 7th...RJ in the 4th...

    I understand your criticism, but:

    1) Pass rush is the Jets biggest need on D and I wanted to take two bites at the apple; and

    2) When I was watching the NFL combine this year, Chinasa just jumped out to me when he was going through the drills. His career stats were trending upward, which leads me to believe he may continue to improve.

    First off, good draft! Shares similarities with mine (...you didn't post in it )
    in that you have heyward, 2x OLB, RJ and a late safety. I'd be boner'd for days if Carter made it to the bottom of the third, but that's pulling at straws i think.

    Why no Carter love? And you no like 2 OLBs? I think it's good way (costly tho) to help ensure that something surfaces at the position.

    I don't disagree, but since PFW slotted him there, I took him.

    Not sure if I am alone here...but..I still see a need to add to the OL...we need depth...I would like to see a good one picked up some place..
