Mock Draft 1.0

Round 1: Vontaze Burfict, ILB, Arizona State

-Not necessarily a direct area of need, but Burfict is going to be an impact linebacker in the NFL. Bart Scott is on his last legs, and entering his final season with the team. To say Burfict is a beast is an understatement. The dude is an elite talent at the linebacker position, and will likely be available to us due to maturity concerns. Too much value.

Round 2: Mark Barron, S, Alabama

-The best Safety in the draft, bar none. A terrific player who can cover, tackle, and help in run support. Well coached, played in a pro style defense. A mid-first round talent, but injury concerns (rumored to have a double sports hernia and will be out until August) will prevent teams from getting a good look at him during the draft process. If he makes it out of the first round, this must be our pick. Top talent at a top need.

Round 3: Vinny Curry, OLB, Marshall

-One of the best collegiate pass rushers in the country, Curry is going to be under scrutiny due to a lack of experience playing top notch competition. Curry has acceptable size for an OLB in our system (6'5" 253) and fills a gaping hole. Curry simply knows how to get to the QB, and will be a huge improvement over guys like Jamal Westerman and Garrett McIntyre. This guy plays like a Jet.

Round 4: LaMichael James, RB, Oregon

-A blur in the open field, and a first round pick based on production. James has top notch speed and agility, but due to his small stature (5'8" 190) he will drop in the draft like many other RBs in the past. If we are going back to the GnP we are definitely going to need another legitimate option out of the back field. James can give that to us, while also improving our team speed on offense.

Round 5: Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa

-Big bodied WR with excellent hands. Strong receiver who is willing to make the difficult catch over the middle. Very productive Senior season, even with spotty at-best QB play. If McNutt were still on the board this late he could end up being a steal. Probably gone by this point, but it is very possible that he doesn't test out well in terms of straight line speed. However, 16 YPC, 1,300 yards, 12 TDs, still count for something...

Round 6: Drew Butler, P, Georgia

-Rare that a player selected this late can have a serious impact on a team, but Butler will have that opportunity. He is the best Punter in this draft, and it is about time we addressed this position properly.

Round 7: Kashif Moore, WR, UConn

-A true burner (rumored to run a lower than 4.35 40). Small WR who can stretch the field deep and has been known to make a spectacular catch. Limited in terms of size, which hurts his pro potential, but you can teach speed; or find a better attribute when drafting late...

I agree that Burfict is a great athlete and a great fit for the Jets defense but i question his draft value. He should be there middle of round 2. the way his stock fell... it might be overpaying to take him in mid round 1.

I don't think his stock will have taken that big a drop come the combine. This kid has a lot of tape, he started basically every game since Freshman year, and most of it is good. His maturity and character concerns are completely overblown in my book; if anything, I wouldn't mind having a mad crazy backer to replace "The Crazy Backer"...Regardless of what the league views his value as, we should take him anyway. This is a pick that will pan out in a big way for our defense, if it means overpaying for a pick that is going to work, so what?

I used to believe this but over the years it becomes clear that the draft is about value.

For example I really thought Terrence Cody was an ideal nose tackle. I thought he was worth a late 1st. But he wasn't. Ozzy newsome traded down, took him in the 2nd (and Sergio Kindle) and got two guys who were possibly 1st round values at 2nd round prices. Cody became a good player but they didn't overpay for him.

I like Burfict and I think he'd be awesome as a Jet. but taking him 15-30 slots too early is not good drafting. another problem with 1st round picks they require huge production to justify the pick. if the Jets take Burfict and he sits for a year playing specials behind Scott and Harris, fans will call it a wasted pick. a 2nd rounder sits it's a little easier to handle. It's my understanding Scott isn't going anywhere for at least 1 year.

also with all the personal fouls he might be there in the 3rd. it's not unthinkable. yes he's a fantastic player but he has fantastic amount of baggage. he'd have to run in the 4.4 area to be worth a mid 1st at this point. Zach Brown might actually do that. I suspect Burfict will perform ok not great at Indy. He's a football player more than he is a track athlete.

I really like Burfict and want him on this team, but that's as far as that goes. I'd completely understand if he didn't end up here...I think Dont'a Hightower would be a fine compromise. There's another guy that can do it all and has legit pro size. This one's not even crazy. In fact, he was the defactor leader in the front 7 for the Tide...Don't take my word on that, but I'm pretty sure it's true. He was often the guy directing other guys not lined up behind him.

I think that Burfict is better suited to play inside in a 3-4 front, but I imagine he would be at least as good as Bryan Thomas was as an OLB. I would take Burfict at 16 if he were available because I don't think that he will make it to the second round. He is a beast, and it only takes one team to determine that he has top 10 talent regardless of baggage; while drafting him in the mid-late 1st round...I really think need wise we should take Barron, but I like what I've seen from some of the later Safety prospects like Markele Martin or George Iloka enough so that I would take the best talent available at 16 (Burfict).

Would it be overypaying for Barron if we took him at our present draft position. I agree with other posters that he will not be there when we get to the second round. We can save ILB for the second pick. I also do not think we need to pick two wideouts in this draft. We do however need to bring in a QB that will at least give Sanchez some fear of losing his Job.
