Jets to pick #9 overall
The Kansas City Chiefs have clinched the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars both finished the season 2-14, but Kansas City gets the top pick due to a weaker strength of schedule. The Jaguars pick second.
Now the question about whom the Chiefs will take can begin. For months, West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith was the obvious choice. But Smith has faded down the stretch, including a subpar showing in the Pinstripe Bowl. With left tackle Brandon Albert facing free agency, Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M would be the front runner for the top pick. Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei may also get consideration for the top pick.
Here is the current 2013 NFL Draft order. It will change slightly based on the result of the game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins. Remember, the first tiebreaker for teams with the same record is strength of schedule. Next is whichever team has a worse division record, then the team with the worse conference record. If all three are the same, there is a coin flip at the NFL Combine in February.

Buffalo may be looking at Mike Glennon at 8, if he blows up the combine.
QBs have been known to jump into early 1st round after the combines, even if they are rated with 2nd or 3rd round grades.
I agree MrX!! Mel Kiper Jr thinks Glennon will be the first QB off the board.
I know Geno cooled off toward the end of the season, but I'd be a bit surprised if Glennon is taken before him.

best thing for the Jets was to lose today...we weren't going to the playoffs so no point in winning any more games...picking #9 isn't too bad...we should be able to get a quality player there.
^^^agreed i was thinking this all day, not that you want ur team to tank but it feels that way after a bum season. then a bunch of teams that were 6-9 won Tenn, Car, TB, SD

Doubtful with KC, Jax and Buffalo in the way.

Something like Tebow, 1st rounder and a 5th for the #2 if Geno is available.
It would keep Jax in the top 10, as well as give them an additional pick with the QB they apparently want.
:shrug:Throwing it out there.
Trade back to the Rams pick from Washington in the 20s with the Rams 2nd and 3rd
Take Chance Warmack and with the next 4 picks take a RT, RB, QB, and another Guard
I'm liking Ande Ellingtonat the RB position.
Nassib did not impress me the few ops I had to watch him.

Wouldn't mind Teo or an OLB at 9. Or just trading down. Maybe snag Montee Ball or Marcus Lattimore later on and wait and see after the combine what the QB situation looks like.
The Jets are really better off building for their next QB than trying to burn a high pick on one at this point.
I want Mingo. But if the draft doesn't fall the way we want then I'd see if St Louis wants our pick for both their 1sts.
Trading with Jacksonville is interesting if it doesn't cost us too much more then Tebow and our pick, but even then I don't know that I want anyone enough to do that. I just don't think Geno is a franchise QB, but maybe I a wrong there.
Someone else brought up Joeckel. I'd probably take him rather then trade down. And I would think about Eric Reid too. Maybe. That depends on what we can get in a trade.
