Nate Irving-ILB NC State

-For those who remember this was the star inside backer for the Wolfpack a few years ago before he was injured in a serious car crash. It has taken him some time to get back to where he was, but after seeing him play this past season he still flashes often. We may be able to steal him later on in the draft. Figure the long-term replacement for Scott/Harris (god forbid).

Cameron Jordan-DE/DT Cal

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=70401&draftyear=2011&genpos=de

-Just an absolute beast regardless of where he plays. Wishful thinking b/c after the Senior Bowl he had he will be long gone.

Cameron Heyward-DE Ohio State

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=68956&draftyear=2011&genpos=DE

-Was considered by many to be a top 10 pick at the start of the season. His current elbow injury may hurt his stock enough for us to snag him. A quality player at a need position.

Jerrell Powe-NT Ole Miss

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=66151&draftyear=2011&genpos=DT

-An absolute tank in the middle of the defense. Could be a very useful player for us if we go after a NT early.

Deunta Williams-S UNC

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=66789&draftyear=2011&genpos=FS

-One of the notable Tarheels to be suspended for the agent party. He hardly played this year and left the season breaking his leg in the team's bowl game. Suspended most of the year+Coming off a broken leg= potentially awesome later round find for us.

Von Miller-OLB Texas A&M

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=70987&draftyear=2011&genpos=OLB

-He is just the man. Clearly the edge pass rusher we need; too bad he will be long gone...

Justin Houston-DE/OLB Georgia

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=69063&draftyear=2011&genpos=OLB

-May not be as sexy a pass rusher as Miller, but was extremely productive against top SEC competition. Barring injuries, I see this guy as player for a long time in this league. If we took him at the end of round 1, I wouldn't be that upset.

I really think that NT is the way to go.

My first question is: Is Jenkins coming back?

If he does, great - but no matter the answer, to me, NT is a huge need.

1) Jets need someone at NT good enough/big enough to take up a C and G on at least some plays. Pouha is a warrior but can be handled with 1 person. Sometimes he beats that person, but o-lines can usually contain him with way less effort than Jenkins.

2) We need fresh legs for that rotation. Rex's defense changes its fronts quite often and those guys are big. A Young NT in the Ngata mold will give an "extra heart and lungs" for the constant cardio that is the trenches.

3) The position isn't a high risk for failure due to thinking (Gholston, anyone?). It has more to do with motor and size than brainwork. I don't think you can find a timid, confused NT.

Jets need their new Jenkins in this draft. Kris can help the kid adjust to the NFL - and if Kris plays as well, all the better. This takes tremendous strain off of the shallow rotation and the linebackers!

Houston does not suck. You'll take that back in 2 years, maybe even 1. Jenkins is coming back. Phil Taylor is climbing up, and should be there at #30 overall.

Getting back to Houston, he does NOT STOP getting after the quarterback. He uses really good leverage, and that combined with his speed and quickness in getting low to the ground and then around tackles makes him a real asset.

Overall a good assessment of who will be there at #30 in: Houston, Taylor, Heyward, Wilkerson (please no), I would also LOVE GREG ROMEUS and have him on the edge of the 1st and 2nd rounds, but that could be wrong and he could be held higher overall. He's a freakish looking 3-4 DE

OH AND LOVE BALLARD!

Anyone here buying Markus White as sleeper? Really think we need speed off the edge more than a big planet guy for the middle...

http://nflmocks.com/2011/02/12/draft-sleeper-markus-white-scouting-report/

He's becoming less of a sleeper...he's a hot pick to blow up the combine and there's rumors of him running in the 4.5 range at 250+...guys got alot of talent too...may be more physically talented than Everette Brown.

I'd love him in the 3-6 range...I've had him in a couple Jets mocks.

Thanks for the intel...hear any talk on Chris Neild, the DT from West Virginia...is he someone we could look at in the later rounds as a NT down the road?

I actually really like this player... very strong, hustle... i could see a scenario where Rex takes him and turns him into another Devito. but Gato is probably right might not be worth a draft pick.
