UnknownJetFan Posted January 29, 2017 Share Posted January 29, 2017 http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/247sports-three-round-new-york-jets-mock-draft/ Here are our first three potential selection for the Jets at the NFL Draft this spring ... (1st) No. 6 LEONARD FOURNETTE, RB, LSU 6-foot-1, 230 pounds The Jets still have Matt Forte and Bilal Powell heading the rotation, but Forte is past 30 and ended last year on IR while Powell is just two years his junior. They’ll need a young back to head off those concerns and also to give whomever their young, inexperienced quarterback will end up being. Fournette is a physical ball carrier through the tackles, scoring 40 touchdowns over three seasons in Baton Rouge on 3,830 total yards. (2nd) No. 39 ANTONIO GARCIA, OT, TROY 6-foot-6, 290 pounds Offensive tackle remains a position of need for the Jets, who are likely to part with Ryan Clady to the left and are not settled to the right, though got a good initial showing from rookie Brandon Shell in three games. As a collegian, Garcia didn’t allow a sack on over 900 offensive snaps on a line that ranked first in fewest sacks allowed nationally. He’s quick off the snap and has the reach to ward off edge rushers. (3rd) No. 70 QUINCY WILSON, CB, FLORIDA 6-foot-1, 213 pounds Darrelle Revis is either leaving the team or, somewhat less likely, will be moved to safety, opening up at least one corner for the Jets. In selecting Wilson, they would acquire a player with proven coverage and ball-tracking skills. He recorded 33 tackles in his final collegiate season, breaking up six passes, and intercepting three more (the SEC’s fourth most), including a 78-yard return for a touchdown. These picks address needs and seem like good choices at those selections. Now with the baggage they are saying about RB Cook, if we have to chose between the RBs I'd say stay away from Cook. And though WR Williams could be there we have much more young depth at WR than we do at RB. We get these 3 and it greatly helps the O at OL and RB and the secondary at CB. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
