Geno Smith crash landing? Or value play for the Jets? (Photo: US Presswire)

I heard a lot of surprised twitter comments that Arthur Brown, Tank Carradine and Manti Te’o weren’t taken in round one. To be honest Geno is surprising but the rest not in the least to me. All are overrated in my opinion. Brown is undersized and not very physical. As a linebacker that is concerning to me. Carradine is a good, solid pass rusher. But certainly not a first rounder in my book. And Te’o? I could care less about Lennay Keuka (well, because she isn’t real!) but Te’o is not very good in coverage. Please, do not let the seven INT fool you. One hit the ground, and a bunch of the rest were gifts. He doesn’t have great change of direction or the ability to flip his hips and turn to cover. Call me crazy but all of the aforementioned players might not even be among the best left.

Here is a look at some of the best available prospects for the Jets and league in general.

With the 9th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Jets are going to be in the market for some of the top quarterbacks in this year’s class. Here, we take a look at Arkansas’s Tyler Wilson against LSU in 2012.

Wilson has a chance to be picked first overall, but there are no givens with this year’s uncertain group of passers. If Wilson begins to slide, the Jets could be in play for the SEC product.

2013 NFL Draft: All Prospect Squad, Second Team Offense

Tyler Wilson is tough and has plenty of arm strength. He gets the Second Team QB nod (slightly) over Barkley. (US: Presswire)

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.
