Never too early....the Jets first round pick will be.....


Recommended Posts

10. DE William Gholston, Michigan State

Buzz: This is a leap of faith of sorts: Gholston has a ton of talent but has lacked consistency in his first two seasons. He is freakishly athletic for a guy his size (6 feet 7 and 275 pounds). Gholston had a number of huge performances last season: 15 tackles and a sack against Nebraska; seven tackles, two sacks, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery against Georgia; 14 tackles and a forced fumble against Minnesota. If he plays with more consistency, big plays will be the result – and big plays make you big money in the NFL. His cousin is former Ohio State DE Vernon Gholston, a first-round pick who has been an NFL bust.

William is infinitely more badass than his cousin. He's meeeeaaan and vicious, and you won't believe he's that rude.

I want another pass rusher next year so guys like Gholston, Jarvis Jones, and Sam Montgomery are all going to be guys you'll hear me pretend I watched in the future.

McShay is thinking pass rusher for the Jets too. Nevermind that he thinks the Jets will be drafting 9th, and that the Pats are drafting 32nd.

An early 2013 AFC East mock draft

By James Walker

I usually don't like to look beyond this season in the NFL because so much can change in a year. But ESPN's resident scout Todd McShay has an interesting mock draft up for 2013.

It's a very early projection. But let's take a look at what McShay has in store for the AFC East:

Miami Dolphins

Pick: No. 8

McShay's pick: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

Thoughts: McShay projects Miami to take one of the best pass-rushers next year. Jones recorded 13.5 sacks as a junior, and expectations are high for Jones in 2012. Pass-rushers are always needed. For example, Dolphins outside linebacker Cameron Wake is entering the final year of his contract and is in the middle of a dispute with the team.

New York Jets

Pick: No. 9

McShay's pick: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU

Thoughts: I'm surprised McShay and Scouts Inc. project New York to have a top-10 pick next year. Are the Jets on their way to another implosion, as the No. 9 overall pick suggests? If that's the case, McShay sees the Jets drafting another pass-rusher in Mingo. This is the norm for Jets coach Rex Ryan. But I think running back and offensive tackle could be more pressing needs by the end of next season.

Buffalo Bills

Pick: No. 17

McShay's pick: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech

Thoughts: The Bills didn't draft a developmental quarterback this year. So I understand why McShay sees Buffalo taking one in the first round in 2013. Buffalo will need to have someone ready to replace Ryan Fitzpatrick in the next few seasons. But I was surprised that it was Thomas over Oklahoma's Landry Jones, who has more buzz entering this year. But both players will settle it on the field to determine who is the second-best quarterback prospect behind Matt Barkley of USC.

New England Patriots

Pick: No. 32

McShay's pick: Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State

Thoughts: Once again, it's interesting that McShay and Scouts Inc. are vaguely predicting a Super Bowl title for New England. The Patriots have so many receivers already that I'm finding it hard to see New England drafting that position in the first round. The Patriots have few holes. But maybe cornerback or running back could be early targets, depending on how things play out this season.
