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.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comIt 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.
