Buzz: Jets going defense with first-round pick

The Jets will go with a defensive player with their first-round pick, according to Mike Garafolo and Jay Glazer of FOX Sports (Garafolo, May 8).

New York has also been rumored to be trying to trade up to pick a wide receiver.

The Jets have the No. 18 pick in the first round.

It seems rather short-sighted that the Jets would call their pick as “defensive” with 17 picks yet to take place.  This seems like a smokescreen at best or a mole-hunt at worst.  Let’s let half the draft take place before we make a call on whether the Jets go defense or offense.

Nope valuable QB. Should be the starter this year he'll outplay Geno.

Secondary needed help. It's a good pick. I'd prefer to be more offensive based but hopefully we get a good offensive pick up tommorow.

We need a cb and wr . I will be happy with darnaud or cooks . Tight end I want the kid from Oregon with the coke problem he would be a steal.

Did Idzik slip a little when talking to Jeanne Coakley.   

If a D-linemen with a better grade is available when the Jets pick,  what will you do ?     Idzik said,  "Can he play wideout ? "

Reading the tweet, it says they THINK the Jets go defense in the 1st round. Not that the Jets are going to take a defensive player.

I have a feeling that tonight we will draft.. whoever we think is the best player available for our team..at whatever slot we end up picking in. How's that for buzz?

Read: Buzz- Jets anticipate the value at CB will be greater than at WR by pick 18.

The future HOF long snapper will look good in green and white at 18.

We would go defense in the best WR draft in 10 years!

Kyle Fuller ,Clinton-Dix, Darqueze Dennard I wouldn't be upset with one of these 3 but the reality is nobody knows what Idzik Ninja is going to do.

My sources tell me the Jets are looking to trade up to get a special teams player.

Bridgewater and Carr will probably be there at 18. Manziel might.

@Gilbert Hernandez  That's my dream scenario quite honestly, although I could also see them coming back for one of the tight ends at the beginning of the 2nd.

Thanks! Tried to get more info but that dmn Idzik is so tight-lipped. & I didn't feel like making up my own leaks like some of these beat writers.

Honestly tho, if we somehow came away with Dennard & Lee tonight, I'd probably run in place for hours!
