Five Players Jets Could Target In Round Two

Photobucket

The draft continues tonight with the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Unfortunately, the Jets only possess a second round pick, however there is still plenty of talent available for them to add with the 61st overall pick. Here are five players the Jets could target at #61 or move up to acquire:

1. Sergio Kindle – OLB – Texas – Just because the Jets added Jason Taylor doesn’t mean they can’t add a pass rusher for the long term. It was a mild surprise Kindle fell out of the first round and the Jets would likely have to trade up to get him.

2. Everson Griffen – DE – USC – The Jets still need to improve the depth on their defensive line. Griffen was frequently associated with the Jets at #29 in mock drafts but maybe now they could snatch him round two.

3. Terrence Cody – DT – Alabama – Another player who was frequently talked about for the Jets at #29. Cody would be a welcome addition to the Jets defensive line and a long term replacement for Kris Jenkins.

4, Nate Allen – S – USF – The Jets could still use another safety to compete with Brodney Pool and Eric Smith. Allen is a talented guy who could end up starting in his rookie year opposite Jim Leonhard.

5. Ricky Sapp – OLB – Clemson – A pass rushing prospect the Jets are apparently high on. They should be able to stay put at #61 and get him.

    looks like i missed the boat on Vlad…Also I guess the Jets didn’t like Sapp as much as advertised since they went McKnight in round 4
