SI.com’s Audibles blog wrote up the draft needs for all the NFC and AFC teams, here’s what Chris Burke wrote against the Jets.
New York Jets
Current picks: 18, 49, 80, 104, 115, 137, 154, 195, 209, 210, 213, 233
Needs: Cornerback, wide receiver, tight end
Guard is another spot the Jets would like to address. But they may have backed themselves into a corner by slow-playing free agency at cornerback, where they lost Antonio Cromartie and only later added Dmitri (sic) Patterson. Tight end and receiver go somewhat hand-in-hand: New York needs more weapons on offense, even after signing Eric Decker.
Fortunately for the Jets and many others, as has been discussed often, this is a deep draft at WR. That’s not so much the case at cornerback, at least in terms of finding a No. 1 or No. 2 option — so the Jets might lean that direction in Round 1.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comIt’s a fair point to say that there’s more potential starting WRs than CBs that will be available in the second round than the first, but there are still players that can be had at CB into the second, third and fourth round that I do think could help out the Jets early in their career. Players like Pierre Desir, Stanley-Jean Baptiste and Marcus Roberson could be effective add-ins for the Jets.
