Originally written on Turn On The Jets  |  Last updated 11/10/14
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!  TEEE-BOOWWWWW
