Jets set to pick 18th in first round of 2014 NFL Draft

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Now that the 2013 season is in the books, the top 20 teams have been ordered for the 2014 NFL Draft. The Jets finished the season 8-8, along with six other teams, but their .488 strength of schedule put them towards the back of the line in that group, in front of only the Miami Dolphins. The good news for the Jets? As the rounds roll on, New York will steadily climb up in the 8-8 group through the first five rounds.

While Bent projects the Jets could have upwards of 12 picks (jump down to conclusions) through trades and compensatories, there is also the remaining Buccaneers pick from the Revis trade. Assuming that the Bucs don’t “cut” Revis to then re-sign him days later to avoid giving up their 2014 third rounder in favor of a fourth, it looks like the Jets will gain the fifth pick in the third round. That pick would give the Jets three picks in the 2014 NFL Draft’s top 69 and four picks in the draft’s top 80.

Any chance Revis will want to come home to the NYJ?

I dont think Ebron is the right pick at #18, I would opt for a WR like Mike Evans , Marquise Lee, or Sammy Watkins.   You can pick up a quality TE later on or sign a FA like Garret Graham

ww85 -- I agree with you but the Jets are actually asking for him to run more and most of his runs are called plays designed for him to run. Unusual.

ebron In the first  & the receiver from Vanderbilt in the second...also we go after  TJ (SAFTEY) Cleveland & orakpo as FA

Hope Jets trade up to get 5or 6 top end draftees. That will supplement their FA signings and give them a total of 10 to12 very good to elite players.

Geno won the game with his legs. He needs to develop as a pocket passer to survive long term in the NFL. But once he has better weapons & gains experience, he's got a decent shot. I still want to see competition in camp, from both a vet & a draftee or Simms.

Draft a TE in the 1st, ehhhhhhhhhh

@Gil_Brandt

No surprise but Manziel and Evans will be playing final college games tomorrow, multiple sources tell me.

The Jets, Steelers, and Ravens all finished 8-8, and the Jets lost to both of them yet they will draft before the Jets, why is that??

What a nice Monday and way to head into the offseason! Things are looking real good. The heck with a few draft positions, this was the way to go, an entire team is fired up, cohesive and confident . Geno is clearly progressing and will take a huge step in 2014 with some playmakers on offense and another solid training camp under his belt. Milliner is showing why he is a top rated college CB and even Winters is coming around. Phase one is complete, now on to phase 2!

Too bad Bent scrapped the BGA this week......

@jake100 Hey, remember when you basically guaranteed that Rex would be fired and you thought that was the right decision? 


How does the decision to retain Rex next year sit with you?

I hope they don't move up just sit at 18 someone will fall im liking Ebron from NC.

@a57se What do you think 57, does Geno have what it takes? Has he progressed enough or should they draft another QB early?

@Brendan @jake100 

Brendan, I am more than fine with it. The man has his flaws as do all HCs, but the positives outweigh his negatives. I think Idzik will even make Rex better. I am really looking forward to 2014.

There is nothing like a competent GM giving a HC the resources to succeed. In Idzik and Rex we trust!

levi
levi

@Brendan He covered his bases on that a few days ago. You probably dont read his posts like most of us and missed it.

@DarrolRayFanClub@marshrandy 

I posted this last night but the difference from the trade value chart is 350 points which equals the 55th pick in the draft.

That is the 23rd pick of the second round!

@Bent

I didn't know you were doing a wrap-up and I am glad you did. I know you did the in-game thing yesterday and I did read through them.....

Your rationale for doing it this way was because you thought we would be wrapped up discussing the Rex situation but that has turned out to be less controversial then we were probably anticipating........

@levi@a57se 

I would take a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round if I was the GM.

Geno has shown he can run with the ball and QB a low risk offense but still doesn't do well under center.

I don't think Geno can run the ball like he has the last few games on a consistent basis and survive in the NFL......

How does Baltimore have a easier SOS? May be a dumb question but coming off a Super Bowl win, it should warrant the hardest SOS in the league. I'm confused.

Brendan
Brendan

@mettle For playoff tie-breakers, head-to-head matters. For draft order, the lower SOS gets the lower pick. 

Brendan

@a57se Well, lying is a sure-fire way to get that label.

Let's stick to football Brendan, i am not going to indulge you anymore as I always end up being the bad guy.

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se I hope Bent chimes in to say how laughable it is that you say you never took part in the "ban joeyboy" movement, as well as the "shut up Joseph" thing, which I by no means started, but had no issue taking part in. 


You lie to try and get the high ground and it's embarrassing, 57. You are the biggest Joey detractor on TJB, to act otherwise is just a flat-out lie. 

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se There it is. You never cease to devolve into this sort of stuff.

@Brendan

Shut Up Brendan. 

And stop lying, you started the Shut Up Joseph crap long before I chimed in and you actively worked to ban him which I NEVER supported.

Many dog me, now I cant take on the whole world, lol, remember, I am Gentle Jake Jones! I am a lover not a fighter.

Brendan

@a57se This coming from the guy who started the "Shut up Joey!" campaign.


Just like you defended Hank in the chat, then told him to Eff off yesterday? 


Don't be such a flip-flopper.

Oh by the way, Joseph...Brendan dogs you more then anyone on this site yet I never see you stand up to him. Why don't you grow a pair?

Brendan
Brendan

@jake100 "Heard on the tube." 


It's the same report being circulated by everyone that comes from Ian Rappaport. And it's not important, Rex is happy, the team is happy, people are happy for once. Let the agents and the lawyers haggle Rex's price tag. 

a57se

@jake100 

Yeah, it would be a terrible thing to back 57 even though everything you said is exactly what I said.

UncleJoesJetFarm

@Brendan @jake100 

Idzik and Rex will hopefully compliment each other. We just have to hope for the best. I do believe it was the right move consdering the circumstances.


Not to back 57, but I just heard on the tube, that management is side stepping the extension issue vehemently and that Idzik wants changes on the defensive staff, so this does seem to have a ways to go. They also said Rex might want more security than Idzik might be willing to offer contract wise. We just have to hope it all works out, but it definitely seems it has a ways to go. I just hope this is not a charade to make Management look good, but in a hollow way. We simply have to let it play out as we will know soon enough.

Brendan
Brendan

@jake100 So you were wrong when you said it was time for Rex to go? Or you are just shifting your stance again?


Because for the past week it was "In Idzik we trust!" No Rex to be found. 

Brendan
Brendan

@levi Yeah, I guess so. I missed him shifting gears, always fun to watch him just ignore the past couple weeks worth of comments to go in a new direction. 

Bent

@a57se @Bent Manish reported both sides are on board with sorting out an extension.  As TJB already reported, we KNOW they've at least been kicking the tires on guys that may be "Idzik guys" but that may have just been due diligence.

@Bent@a57se 

ONLY 10?

@Bent

Have you heard anything about Idzik trying to get some of his guys on the coaching staff or rex getting an extension?

These seem like issues that need to be resolved despite the show of unity after yesterdays' game.....

@a57se @Bent 


There's ultimately as much content in the four posts yesterday and today's wrap as you'd get in a 10-post BGA anyway.


We'll have plenty of time to look back - and ahead - over the course of the offseason, so I won't be hurting for content.

a57se

@Bent

Probably not!

Save some of that content for the rest of the YEAR!

Bent

@a57se @Bent Yes...although we've ALREADY posted 10 articles today and it's still morning.  There are more in the pipeline.  I don't think there's room for 10 separate BGA posts as well today!

@a57se@levi  I would like to see, Geno with some guys who can create separation and actually get open.    Nelson was a nice addition.   Id like to see Kerley, Nelson, and grab a number one, like Mike Evans or Sammy watkins

Bent
Bent

@levi @a57se In that case you can expect Manish to write how reckless it was to put him in that frame of mind by not telling the team about keeping Rex sooner.

levi

@a57se I think he was playing extra hard and risking injury to save Rex's job is what I was saying.

@levi@a57se 

I am not sure I understand your comment about Geno but he plays hard and isn't afraid out there, which is a good thing.

levi

@a57se Someone should of told Geno Rex wasnt gonna get fired before the game. He might not have played with such reckless abandon. Hes a gamer though.
