With the 29th pick in the first round, a pick they received from the Atlanta Falcons in the John Abraham deal, the Jets further bolstered their offensive line depth by selecting Ohio State center, Nick Mangold.

The 6’3”, 300LB Mangold was the highest rated center in the draft. His scouting report rates him as a quick, explosive player off the line who is a talented disciplined blocker. Mangold’s stock soared following an excellent Senior Bowl, He was a three year starter for the Buckeyes and won All-Conference honors as a junior and senior.

After releasing former Pro-Bowl center Kevin Mawae in March, the Jets signed former Bills’ center Trey Teague soon after. Teague is expected to be the starter this year so the move gives the Jets the opportunity to wean Mangold into the Pros.

With their first selection in the 2nd round (#35), the Jets traded the pick to the Redskins. In return for the pick, the Jets got Washington's second round (#53) and sixth round pick (#189) in this year's draft plus the Redskins' second round pick in next year's draft.
