Turn On The Jets:
The New York Jets currently have the 9th pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. There is speculation swirling that they could also end up with the 13th pick via a trade of Darrelle Revis, yet for now let’s just focus on their definite, singular first round pick. Here are 9 names that make sense for the Jets either with their 9th pick or via a trade down with the 9th pick as the centerpiece.
Barkevious Mingo – DE/OLB – LSU - Arguably the pass rusher and outside linebacker who best matches up with the Jets need and their draft position. Mingo would provide good value at #9 and fill a glaring hole on the Jets defense. A closer look at Mingo’s tape shows his game is much more well-rounded than many initially assume. Despite a drop in sack production last year, he showed an ability to set the edge in the running game and be a key movable chess piece in the LSU defense. Mingo has a high ceiling and is the type of player who can develop into a needed game changer off the edge for the J...

The NFL takes it’s anti-tampering policy very serious. So serious that Greg Schiano fears to mention Darrelle Revis by his name to make sure he doesn’t get a letter from the league. Unfortunately, the Bucs may have violated the policy anyhow. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora was on 98.7 The Fan with Justin “The Commish” Pawloski when La Canfora revealed something very interesting...

The Jets are fighting to stay on top of their division while the Isles are clawing up the ladder in theirs. This is a must win game for two teams that may be a little weary from playing last night.

There's no question at all that the New York Jets offense had an abysmal 2012 season. With no run support, and no leader at the helm, the Jets offense failed to do it's job, finishing 30th in the league. This causes fans to believe that utilizing the 9th overall pick on an offensive player is the way to go. It isn't.
The 2013 Offensive Draft Class is weak.
