    Can Bailey or Bucannon play FS? from what i've read, they're both listed as SS. Thought we needed more FS help? Love the rest of the picks though!

    Nice late round prospect. I'd love for us to grab him with one of our late round picks. Paired with Demario Davis, they'd make a hell of a tandem!

    Buzz: Jets Considering Trading Down
    Interesting stuff from Kristian Dyer at the Metro:

    “The Jets have been doing their due diligence on the
    pick and seem very open to moving out of No. 9,” a league source with
    knowledge of the situation told Metro. The source spoke on the condition
    of anonymity because he is not allowed to comment on personnel
    situations. “There doesn’t seem to be anyone at that spot in the draft
    who can necessarily help them any more than later in the round. This
    isn’t a top-heavy draft, especially in the first round, but it is
    relatively deep. The Jets seem open to the idea of moving out.”

    He looks good on tape, could add about 5 - 10lbs. though. But I wouldn't mind taking him in the 3rd or 4th. And he blew up the combine...

    Jamie Collins OLB - Southern Miss

                                 Originally, the athletic Collins decided to sign with Auburn,
    but changed his mind to stay in his home state after unknown quantity
    Gene Chizik took over as the Tigers’ head coach in December 2008. Even
    though he missed out on the 2010 BCS championship season because of that
    decision, his career with the Golden Eagles predicts a NFL future in
    the path of former lean Southern Miss linebackers Michael Boley and
    Gerald McRath.

    Collins was a high school quarterback who led his team to
    back-to-back state championship games in his sophomore (when his
    Franklin County (Miss.) squad got the win) and junior seasons. After
    arriving in Hattiesburg, coaches’ conversion of Collins paid immediate
    dividends; playing as a reserve in all 13 games, he accumulated 48
    tackles (three for loss, two sacks). During his sophomore year, he moved
    from safety to linebacker due to a mid-season injury. He started seven
    games, playing in every contest, garnering honorable mention
    All-Conference USA honors with 76 tackles (three for loss, 2.5 sacks),
    intercepting two passes and breaking up two others. He was again put on
    the honorable mention squad for his work starting all 14 games in 2011,
    in which he totaled 98 tackles (19.5 for loss), 6.5 sacks, and eight
    pass break-ups. As a senior, Collins tallied 92 tackles (20 for loss),
    10 sacks, four forced fumbles, and five passes broken up. This excellent
    senior year earned him first-team All-Conference USA honors.


    Presents a long, lean frame that NFL teams
    look for in a stand-up pass rusher. Quick feet and long strides help him
    close on quarterbacks, move down the line to crash on runs, as well as
    give him the short-area agility to move in coverage with slot receivers
    for short periods despite his height and length. Short area quickness,
    and the ability to redirect in an instant. Power hands at times. Capable
    of shedding in either direction to contain or fill a gap. Knows to
    knock receivers at the line and crossers off their routes with his
    strong arm extension. Has the length to wrap up ballcarriers trying to
    avoid him in the backfield, as well as grab backs running away from him.
    Lacks sand in his pants and upper-body
    strength to be an every-down defensive end against NFL tackles, and gets
    consistently pushed back by double teams. Inconsistent coming off the
    snap quickly, at times looking like he can beat tackles with a strong
    first step but being among the last moving on other plays. Motor runs
    cold, don't pursue plays well. Loses track off his position in zone
    coverage. Can be eluded in space by quicker ballcarriers or in the
    backfield by mobile quarterbacks. Must speed up his hands to win battles
    against pro linemen, slow to disengage.
                                 NFL Comparison
    Clark Haggans
    Bottom Line
    A tall lean end/linebacker hybrid for
    Southern Miss, Collins racked up 20 tackles for loss (and 10 sacks) for
    the Golden Eagles during his first-team All-Conference USA senior
    season. Though he’s not an elite pass rush talent and is still growing
    into his frame, he presents scouts with surprising agility for his size
    and the length to be an effective 3-4 ‘backer capable of doing a bit of
    everything, with untapped potential as a mid-round pick.

  12. jetfan718 added a post in a topic 2013 NFL Draft: Jelani Jenkins - LB - Florida   


    As five-star outside linebacker recruit, Jenkins was
    first-team all-state in Maryland. Highly sought after, Jenkins chose
    Florida over Notre Dame, Penn State, USC and Stanford. Jenkins was
    named the Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year in both 2007 and 2008. As
    a senior, he traveled to Los Angeles as one of five national finalists
    for the Watkins Award, awarded annually to the “Premier African-American
    Male Scholar Athlete”.

    Jenkins took a redshirt in his first year in 2009, as he only
    appeared in two games and made just two tackles. In 2010, Jenkins
    appeared in all 13 games, and registered 11 starts. He spent time at
    middle linebacker and weak-side linebacker. On the season, he totaled 76
    tackles (4.5 for loss), two sacks, and one interception. In 2011,
    Jenkins started 12 games (he missed one due to injury). He recorded 75
    tackles (6 for loss), two sacks, six pass breakups, and one
    interception, which he returned for a touchdown. Jenkins dealt with
    injuries his redshirt junior season, which limited him to just nine
    games. His medical issues included a lingering tweaked hamstring, and
    surgeries on his right foot and hand. Jenkins had 29 tackles (5 for
    loss), two sacks, one interception, and one punt block.


    Showcases good speed, moves well from
    sideline to sideline. Good burst. Athletic. Works well in pursit, able
    to track ball carriers and then make tackles. Possessing good blitzing
    ability. Best trait is his ability to cover. Can run with backs and
    tight ends. Easily flips hips, and turns his head to find the football.

    Does not possess ideal size or length. Not
    very strong at the point. Will get latched onto blockers when the get
    inside his frame. Needs to use his hands better and be more aggressive
    in shedding blocks. Medical concerns.

    NFL Comparison
    Nick Roach
    Bottom Line
    When healthy, Jenkins is a dynamic athlete
    who possesses great value with his ability to cover. However, he's had a
    hard time staying healthy, and struggles when run at

  13. jetfan718 added a post in a topic 2013 NFL Draft: Lerentee McCray - LB - Florida   

                                 Sometimes it takes until a player’s senior season before he
    gets a chance to realize his potential -- as McCray will tell you. A
    four-star prospect from Ocala, Florida, he had three tackles in the
    prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl after putting up over 200
    tackles and 20 sacks in his junior and senior seasons in high school.
    But it took until his senior year to become a full-time starter, mostly
    due to an injury to talented sophomore Ronald Powell, before he could be
    healthy enough to saty on the field. Despite this delay, scouts have
    seen enough of his raw size and athleticism to consider him a potential
    contributor at the next level.

    McCray played in eight games on special teams in 2008, making
    five tackles on the season. He only played three games the following
    year, again being credited with five stops as a reserve before receiving
    a medical redshirt. McCray got in 10 games as a reserve in 2010 (six
    tackles, one for loss) and nine in 2011 (five starts, 24 tackles, 7.5
    for loss, 1.5 sacks, three pass break-ups), but missed seven games over
    those two seasons due to shoulder and ankle maladies. As a senior,
    McCray recorded 25 tackles (4.5 for loss), three sacks, and an

    Strengths Versatile defender who rushes the passer from
    either side of the line, with his hand down or standing up. Solid
    get-off from a hand-down position, can stay low and has excellent
    flexibility to turn the corner, length to wrap up quarterbacks and
    separate the ball on impact. Also wins B-gap by coming off low and
    strong. Uses his length to get leverage when bull-rushing or facing
    double teams on the edge despite his slight build. Powerful hands that
    result in a jolt on contact. Works hard through blocks to reach the
    quarterback if the ball stays in the pocket. Hustles to chase plays
    across the line and downfield. Stays on his feet through cut blocks,
    uses his hands to keep balance. Agile enough to drop into a zone. Shows
    hands for the easy interception.
    Weaknesses Has an injury history, also rotated out of
    games regularly; must prove stamina to be an every-down player. Lean
    defender who can be knocked off his path as a pass rusher by a strong
    punch. Relies on outside rush too often, needs counter moves to take
    advantage of inside lane. Struggles to get off blocks when leaning into
    his man on the edge. Must prove he has the agility and bend to move with
    receivers outside in coverage.
    NFL Comparison Bryan Thomas
    Bottom Line One particular game of note for McCray this
    season came against Texas A&M and Luke Joeckel, where McCray's
    powerful hands and strength gave Joeckel noticable issues. McCray has
    missed nearly two seasons of games due to injuries. But when healthy,
    the former four-star high school recruit flashes enough strength, length
    and athleticism to be a mid-round pick capable of contributing as an
    outside linebacker in a 3-4 system.

  14. jetfan718 added a post in a topic Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah   

    IMO there aren't that any Top 10 "impact" offense players that will be available to us when we pick, other than Joeckel and he'll be long gone. Everyone else is a Top 20 or later. I can't see us reaching for a QB or RB with our pick, nor should we. Without a doubt I think we go defense and if not then trade down, but I do like Ansah, if he can drop 10 lbs. with his athleticism and Rex's coaching, I think we have a dominant presence at OLB.
