New York Jets 7 Round Mock Draft

ROUND 1 (6th Overall) – Vic Beasley, OLB Clemson View image | gettyimages.com I think a trade back for more picks, due to the vast amount of pass rushers that could still be had in the mid-first round, might be a better option than staying put and drafting one here.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Dumpster Fire

The New York Jets put on a pathetic display of football today in San Diego, losing 31-0. Statistically, this game is borderline incomprehensible, as their two quarterbacks combined to go 13/32 for 60 yards, their defense allowed 439 total yards, including 162 rushing (to San Diego’s 4th string running back!) and didn’t cross the 50 yard line until garbage time in the 4th quarter...
