Does it really all boil down to Revis for Austin?? (Photo: US Presswire)

By Marc Sluis, Staff Writer

We are officially in 2013 NFL Draft week mode. Mr. Revis is gone, in my opinion a practical and future driven move, for a first rounder (#13) and a 3rd rounder, plus a future 5th round….wait, there is no guaranteed 3rd rounder or 5th rounder?!! Just a potential 4th! To be clear ESPN New York (Adam Shefter and Rich Cimini) are reporting if Revis is a Buc in 2014 the second pick is a third, not fourth rounder.

AND READ CONNOR’S REVIS WRAP UP BELOW!

This mock also has another major trade I think will go down. Miami deals up to take… Sorry for the sitcom commercial pitch, but you’ll need to read on to find out about that one!

Could Geno Smith and Tavon Austin both be wearing Jet green as rookies?

By Connor Rogers, Staff Writer

The Darrelle Revis trade market appears to be picking up in recent days, as reports have surfaced the Jets will only make a deal if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers include their 13th overall selection. Revis is the team’s best player and possibly the best corner to ever step on an NFL field.

Coming off knee surgery, the Jets have let the market for Revis services approach them, a wise approach from general manager John Idzik. It appears the Bucs are all in on Revis which raises the question, what would the Jets do with that 13th overall selection while also keeping their 9th overall selection? (more…)

No one knows for sure what is going on in the inner depths of One Jets Drive as John Idzik prepares for his first draft as a general manager, but few analysts predict the Jets would dare take who is perceived to be a slot receiver with the ninth overall pick. Besides, the Jets already have their own budding star in the slot with Jeremy Kerley.

Nonetheless, the explosive West Virginia product should be in consideration as a top-10 selection for the playmaker-needy Jets.

2013 NFL Draft: Athletic Report Cards (Post Combine Evaluation)

By Marc Sluis, Staff Writer

Around this time of year everyone goes a little crazy. No it’s not just tax season but the NFL combine participants probably feel like they’re being audited, just not by the IRS. Their future employers are picking and prodding them for the most intense job interview you can imagine. Us draft fans seem to forget all the games we watched, all the stats we’ve checked and completely forget how these athletes actually play the sport of football, me included. The wealth of numbers, measurements and times thrown at us would make even accountants feel overwhelmed. Yet, it’s exciting, so exciting in fact we become infatuated with how good prospects look in the interesting new Under Amour workout gear.

So is it purely a show to distract us from the prospects’ real value? No not at all. It’s a time to confirm what we saw on tape, directly and accurately compare the athletic tools we witnessed throughout the season and start to form the first really precise Big Boards in preparation for our favorite time of the year. And yes, it’s better than a tax refund.

By Ryan Alfieri, Editor

West Virginia’s Tavon Austin is one of the most exciting players to enter the 2013 NFL draft. Austin is an incredible athlete with rare change-of-direction skills that make him an ideal slot receiver, especially considering his relatively short stature at 5’7.

He is also a terrific returner and also lines up in the backfield. Simply put, Austin is the most dangerous man in college football with the ball in hands in the open field and would be a great asset to the Jets offense. But how do the Jets go about drafting him?
