The more and more we look at this year’s draft class and how is corrolates’ to the Jets’ needs, the more and more it look like the Jets will take an outside linebacker with their ninth-overall selection in April.

Two of the top candidates for the selection are Oragon’s Dion Jordan and LSU’s Barkevious Mingo. Both are similar players from a measurebales standpoint and would both give the Jets’ a much needed dimension of speed and athleticism, so what is it exactly that separates these two as prospects?

The Jets are in a bit of an awkward situation at quarterback with Sanchez, who has clearly lost both the fan base and his once biggest supporter Rex Ryan. Yet with $8.25 million owed to him he is at least going to be one of the highest paid clipboard holders in history.

Do the Jets spend one of their premium picks on a future franchise signal caller even in a weak quarterback class?I’d tend to think they will and should wait until at least round 2 (they have the #39 overall selection) to address it as they are likely to get similar talent at much better value.
