With the Jets’ first round selection being, and rightly so, booked for a DE/OLB (Moore, Mingo, Jones, Ansah) the draft prospectus for Gang Green looks to be broken into three categories: 2nd round, mid rounds 3-5, and the late round fliers. I’ll feature every position and the best prospects that fall into each category.

We’ll start with the QB position.

It’s clear the Jets quarterback situation could be ever more awkward this year, if that’s in fact possible. Sanchez has lost the support of everyone including his staunch defender Rex Ryan, but due to a horrendous contract there is simply nowhere he can go. Will he start, get first team reps or will a new face or even Greg McElroy take the helm? It’s not out of the question the Jets consider moving down to take a QB, but it looks like there will be a successor taken at some point. Here are the best options for each draft “zone”.

This list, unlike the All-American team, is based purely on how I grade the prospects at each position. These are very fluid and will chance with the chance to watch more tape and especially after the Senior Bowl and combine, but are the current second team defense so to speak.

Some potential Jets could be: 3-4 OLB Dion Jordan, Anthony Barr ILB Kevin Minter and S TJ McDonald and Tony Jefferson and DE Alex Okafor

This list, unlike the All-American team, is based purely on how I grade the prospects at each position. These are very fluid and will change with the chance to watch more tape and especially after the Senior Bowl and combine, but are the current second team offense so to speak.

There are a couple of surprising selections here, most notably Tyler Wilson out-dueling Matt Barkley. For the record I constantly go back and forth between the two, and feel they are both solid yet less than perfect prospects and relatively comparable. I just feel Barkley struggled late this year against Pac-12 defenses with two future NFL wide outs, so the jump in competition is concerning.

This list, unlike the All-American team, is based purely on how I grade the prospects at each position based on the position they are best suited for in the NFL. These are very fluid and will change with the chance to watch more tape and especially after the Senior Bowl and combine, but are the current first team offense so to speak.

 

QB Geno Smith WEST VIRGINIA

 

- Smith has the arm strength, touch and deep ball accuracy of a franchise level talent with above average escapability. The question is which Geno will show up from week to week and how much did his college system inflate his performances.

The running back position isn’t the Jets top priority, but is definitely a need come draft time. These guys are the cream of the crop and could be on the radar, especially if they fall into day two or three.
