TOJ at SB Nation NY begins his position by position preview of the NFL Draft for the New York Jets, starting with summarizing their top needs.

I also took a little informal Twitter poll of who a few other fellow Jets writers/bloggers have the team taking with the 30th overall pick, with the first round only three weeks away –

Manish Mehta (@TheJetsStream) “I think they trade up for OLB…. I’m going with [Akeem] Ayers.”

Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) “I’ll go Baylor NT Phil Taylor.”

Deb B (@LilMissNYJet) – “Pending Taylor off the boards by #30…….I’m picking Brooks Reed. I want him over Akeem Ayers for OLB need.”

Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) “I still think Phil Taylor should be the pick if he’s available. If not, [Marvin] Austin or [Justin] Houston.”

Chris Celletti (@ChrisCelletti) “They have to go best DE available…likely Phil Taylor.”

Kiera Massette (@KieraMassette) “…I really like the idea of Marvin Austin.”

For the record, TOJ is taking Phil Taylor as of right now.

I also asked Jason La Canfora of NFL.com about the chances of the Jets getting Temple DT/DE Muhammad Wilkerson and he respondedlooking doubtful. Things could change but low 20s could be lowest he falls.”

    Ehhhh, Wilkerson is a DE, I think we need more DTs. Personally, I’d love a chance to see this set up. The first two are DTs but that would give us a line that would last for the next ten years, both demand double coverage and taking three NTs and putting them on the line sounds a like rock solid line.

    1. Phil Taylor
    3. Kendrick Ellis
    4. Dontay Moch/Chris Carter
