Michael Floyd WR
Courtney Upshaw OLB/DE
Melvin Ingram OLB/DE
Mark Barron SS/FS
Whitney Mercilus OLB/DE
Floyd, Ingram and Barron will ge GONE, at least every credible person that does this for a living says they will, although nobody knows for sure.
I would be thrilled with any of those guys, although I have a feeling Stephen Hill is going to end up rivaling Blackmon as the top receiver taken this year - but that's based on a "freakanomics" type evaluation on ESPN Insider that evaluates the number of opportunities presented, AND the number of opportunities actaully taken advantage of, and they also break it down into short, intermediate, and long passes, and Hill had the best avg/throw at all distances, but crushed EVERYONE with long passes. I posted that article a 4-5 days ago, I don't know if anyone read it.
That leaves Upshaw and Mercilus - and unless they've found dirt on Upshaw - REAL CHARACTER ASSIGNATION TYPE STUFF - I think Upshaw is the guy (if we pass on Hill - which, or course I know we will).
I agree with everyone who says, "Let's trade down." The problem is, if WE don't think the talent is there worth picking at #16 - what team is going to be the idiot to trade up to 16, and actuallt give US something od value? Just a thought.
ideally i would would love Floyd
Melvin Ingram in the 1st and Doug Martin/David Wilson in the 2nd.
If he's not, it's Defense.
After seeing what Ingram has to offer, NO!!!
He gets his sacks based on a non-stop motor, which is not bad, but he's not the type of OLB that will work a sack.
Upshaw/Barron or trading down for picks or Mercilus are understandable.
Trading down for Perry, NO!!!!!!
Perry can NOT play the run, teams have run directly at him. Do you want to spend a 1st on a situational speed pashrusher only? I think not.
Someone put a trade down to Cleveland at #22, but in no way do the Jets trade down and give up more picks then they'd receive.
I see the Jets really like Ingram

- This may come as no surprise but the chatter is getting louder from league insiders that the primary strategy for the New York Jets in round one would be trading up for Melvin Ingram of South Carolina. Who are potential trade partners? The Jacksonville Jaguars for starters, though we hear there will be competition for that selection if it comes into play.
Wow. I don't think he's that good but that's me.
People that think Ingram isn't that good are on crack. He's widely the most athletic LB in the draft.
He's good but not elite player. He overpurses the ball and is easily guided away.

He's the most versatile, not the most athletic. I think he'd be a great pick at 16. Not a fan of trading up for him and losing our 2nd or even 3rd rounder though
Michael Floyd or Mark Barron at 16 please...take the best available OLB in the 2nd round round please. Thanks.
There's a fair chance neither is there at 16
