Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select QB Bryce Petty

The New York Jets moved up one spot in the 4th round to select Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty. Here are initial thoughts on the pick… 1. Petty was rumored to be sky rocketing up team’s draft boards in the past week, with talk circulating of him potentially even sneaking into the first round.

New York Jets Best & Worst Case Round One Scenarios

New York Jets fans tend to remember the bad times. We can't help ourselves, with a litany of embarrassing moments throughout the franchise's history. Yet in terms of the NFL Draft, for every forgettable bust New York has taken early in the first round, there have been just as many superstar players selected.

New York Jets 7 Round Mock Draft

ROUND 1 (6th Overall) – Vic Beasley, OLB Clemson View image | 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.
