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. However, at number 6 I believe both QBs will be gone and pass rusher will be the direction that they decide...
