    McShay: 2014 NFL Mock Draft 4.0

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft...rst-two-rounds

    (18.) New York Jets: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
    The Jets added Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford to go along with Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill this offseason, but this is still very much a need position. Specifically, New York needs a receiver who can stretch the field vertically, which is what makes Cooks a good fit here. I seem to be in the minority in liking Cooks more than LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. and USC's Marqise Lee. Even though he's smaller than Beckham Jr., Cooks has more reliable hands and is a better route runner. Cooks is also faster than Lee both in 40 times and on tape and catches the ball better than him.

    (49.) New York Jets: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
    The addition of Seferian-Jenkins, a very good red-zone threat, and first-round pick Brandin Cooks, gives the Jets' QBs a chance to be successful this season.



    Seems like a lot of the 'experts' are agreeing on our picks, or at very least have us going WR/TE. I'll take it.

    I sorta hate Cooks- I don't want a small wideout with a premium first round pick. I've only seen highlight reels of him but even in those he had good straight line speed but very little wiggle or moves for yac- he is not a Percy Harvin(ish) little guy athlete. I don't want a shrimp at 18.

    I'm mildly surprised we don't get a safety mocked more- the value lines up with #18 and it's a need but our dearth of offensive weapons is so well publicized I suppose:

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd be kinda pissed if we passed on guys like Lee, Beckham, Gilbert and Barr for Cooks.

    The Jets will be in big trouble if Nelson is the starter (again) next season. He's a #4 depth WR signed to a #4 depth WR contract. People expecting more will be very disappointed.

    The Jets need a playmaker more than anything else on offense right now.

    Nelson will be a solid 4 or 5 hands guy this year, probably split some time with Kerley - definitely not starting.

    WR: Decker, Kerley, DRAFT, Nelson, Hill, Ford, Gates, Jones, Hakim, Salas
    TE: DRAFT, Cumberland, Sudfeld, Pantale
    RB: Ivory, Powell, DRAFT/JOHNSON?, Goodson, Green
    FB: Bohanon

    Definitely need a playmaker but if nothing else the offense is shaping up to look somewhat reliable/consistent.

    couldn't disagree more...i think nelson is way underrated...number 1,2,3 or whatever really seems silly...i bet he starts a couple of games next year cause he's a solid player...

    The only way Nelson starts any games next season is if the Jets have some injuries at WR and/or completely neglect the position for the rest of the offseason. He's a solid depth role player, nothing more nothing less, and his contract reflects it.

    It's not tough to recognize mediocrity when you see it. I don't think anyone is bashing Nelson. He is who he is: a solid veteran best used in a backup role. Good size, solid hands, but can't get separation especially against starting quality corners.

    Back on topic...

    Personally, I would go in another direction with the players left on the board, but these are two very solid picks which upgrade the offense greatly. ASJ could very well be the best TE in this draft class.

    don't worry, it's not just you. The fact that every pundit has cooks to us at this point pretty much guarantees he won't be the pick.

    My least favorite of the reasonable WR choices (Beckham, Lee, Cooks). And yes, if Barr is there, he's a no-brainer at 18

    When I see mocks like this I just smile knowing Barr would be the pick, we can get a WR as good as Cooks @ 49.
    I'm starting to get excited to see mocks that have Barr slipping down to 18. Yes please.
    Imagine getting Barr, WR, Tripp, CJ, Sankey, OG!

    I dont see anyway your getting Sankey unless your talking 2nd round. Unless he gets arrested or hurts himself he isnt falling that far. He will likely be the 1st RB off the board. Maybe even 1st round. Evvery board Ive seen has him as one of the top 3 RBs your not getting him late in the 4th.

    I don't get Hyde to the pats at all. With Ridley, Vereen, and Bolden on the roster.

    I just can't see Barr lasting to 36. His positional value and potential upside is just too high. I mean is there really that much of a drop off in talent compared to Dion Jordan, last year's third overall pick.

    I smile at all mocks that have Zack Martin drafted before 19. The Fins really need him to fall in their laps and, if he doesn't, there's no other OL that's worth that pick.
