With the NFL Draft a little over a day away, here is your complete list of players to watch with the New York Jets early round selections. Along with a ranking on a scale on 1-5 Tebows (SEO! SEO!) on how likely the Jets are to draft them in one man’s humble opinion.
9th and 13th Pick
- Chance Warmack – Guard – Alabama - A safe pick who starts from day one and is very good immediately…naturally he will get booed if selected by the Jets. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Jonathan Cooper – Guard – North Carolina - See above. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Tavon Austin – Wide Receiver – West Virginia - I think Jets fans are so used to watching players like Plod Greene, Jeff Cumberland and Chaz Schilens, they can’t fathom a guy like Austin on offense. 3 TEBOWS!
- Dion Jordan – Outside Linebacker – Oregon - Don’t think he will be there at #9. 1 TEBOW!
- Barkevious Mingo – Outside Linebacker – LSU - Most popular mock pick for Jets, which means there is probably no chance of him going there…still 3 TEBOWS!
- Tyler Eifert – Tight End – Notre Dame - Becoming a popular pick for Jets since they acquired the 13th pick for Darrelle Revis. Safe, immediate day one starter who fills a major need. 3 TEBOWS!
- Jarvis Jones – Outside Linebacker – Georgia - Talk starting to pick up about the Jets interest in him. Smokescreen? Less flash than other pass rushers but maybe safer pick. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Ziggy Ansah – Defensive End – BYU - Doubt he is there by #9. 1 TEBOW!
- Geno Smith – Quarterback – West Virginia - Radio City goes wild because his name isn’t Mark Sanchez. 1.5 TEBOWS!
- Dee Milliner – Cornerback – Alabama - Rex does love his cornerbacks. 2 TEBOWS!
- DJ Hayden – Cornerback – Houston - Rex just attended his workout. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Kenny Vaccaro – Safety – Texas - Haven’t heard much about him lately but the Jets are currently starting Josh Bush at safety. 1.5 TEBOWS!
25th – 39th Range (Jets pick 39th but could very well trade down from 9 or 13 to 25-38 range as well).
- EJ Manuel – Quarterback – Florida State - The highest ceiling of any quarterback in this draft. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Matt Elam – Safety – Florida - Visited Florham Park. Fills a major need. Good value in this range. 3 TEBOWS!
- Jonathan Cyprien – Safety – Florida International - See above. 3 TEBOWS!
- Margus Hunt – Defensive End – Southern Methodist - The Jets spent plenty of time with him, with Rex Ryan personally working him out. 2.5 TEBOWS!
- Ryan Nassib – Quarterback – Syracuse - Are Jets actually interested or just smoke-screening Buffalo? 2 TEBOWS!
- Sylvester Williams – Defensive Tackle – North Carolina - Jets could surprise and take a DT earlier than most expect. 2 TEBOWS!
- Sio Moore – Outside Linebacker – UConn - If the Jets don’t address OLB early in round 1, he becomes that much more likely of a pick. 3 TEBOWS!
- Zach Ertz – Tight End – Stanford - The Jets need a starting tight end, badly. 3 TEBOWS!
- Giovanni Bernard – Running Back – North Carolina - (Still waiting on Chris Ivory trade). 1 TEBOW!

1.09 New York Jets Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama, (6-0, 201)
The New Yorks Jets traded away Darrelle Revis prior to the draft, leaving the Jets with an obvious need at corner back. Pressure will be very high on Milliner to fill Revis’s shoes, but he could very well be the guy that can do it.
Milliner is a guy that has the ability to stick with any receiver in this league man-to-man...

Are we so sure that Rex Ryan is a lame duck coach who has no influence in Florham Park anymore?

The results were surprising...

It's funny writing about the NFL Draft. There's two sides to the equation and you can't really take both and talk about all the possibilities without pumping out an essay that people lose interest in half way through. It's you write about what the Jets should do, or what the Jets will probably do.Part 1 of this article (discussing the Jets ninth overall selection...

We were about two-thirds of the way through our Team Blogger Mock Draft when the trade between Tampa Bay and the New York Jets illustrated the complete futility of the effort by making a trade that made it obsolete.

Cornerback Darelle Revis is now a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being traded from the New York Jets in exchange for multiple draft picks. While some people may question whether or not this trade works for either side, I'm on the side that says it does work. It's good for the Jets because they get something in return for arguably the best corner in the league....
