NFL Draft 2013 – New York Jets 1st and 2nd Round Watch Guide

7

With the NFL Draft a little over a day away, here is your complete list of players to watch with the New York Jets early round selections. Along with a ranking on a scale on 1-5 Tebows (SEO! SEO!) on how likely the Jets are to draft them in one man’s humble opinion. 

9th and 13th Pick

Chance Warmack – Guard – AlabamaA safe pick who starts from day one and is very good immediately…naturally he will get booed if selected by the Jets. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

Jonathan Cooper – Guard – North CarolinaSee above. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

Tavon Austin – Wide Receiver – West VirginiaI think Jets fans are so used to watching players like Plod Greene, Jeff Cumberland and Chaz Schilens, they can’t fathom a guy like Austin on offense. 3 TEBOWS! 

- Dion Jordan – Outside Linebacker – OregonDon’t think he will be there at #9. 1 TEBOW! 

- Barkevious Mingo – Outside Linebacker – LSUMost popular mock pick for Jets, which means there is probably no chance of him going there…still 3 TEBOWS! 

- Tyler Eifert – Tight End – Notre Dame - Becoming a popular pick for Jets since they acquired the 13th pick for Darrelle Revis. Safe, immediate day one starter who fills a major need. 3 TEBOWS! 

- Jarvis Jones – Outside Linebacker – GeorgiaTalk starting to pick up about the Jets interest in him. Smokescreen? Less flash than other pass rushers but maybe safer pick. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

- Ziggy Ansah – Defensive End – BYUDoubt he is there by #9. 1 TEBOW! 

- Geno Smith – Quarterback – West Virginia - Radio City goes wild because his name isn’t Mark Sanchez. 1.5 TEBOWS!  

- Dee Milliner – Cornerback – AlabamaRex does love his cornerbacks. 2 TEBOWS! 

DJ Hayden – Cornerback – Houston - Rex just attended his workout. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

- Kenny Vaccaro – Safety – Texas - Haven’t heard much about him lately but the Jets are currently starting Josh Bush at safety. 1.5 TEBOWS! 

25th – 39th Range (Jets pick 39th but could very well trade down from 9 or 13 to 25-38 range as well).

- EJ Manuel – Quarterback – Florida StateThe highest ceiling of any quarterback in this draft. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

- Matt Elam – Safety – Florida - Visited Florham Park. Fills a major need. Good value in this range. 3 TEBOWS!

- Jonathan Cyprien – Safety – Florida International - See above. 3 TEBOWS! 

- Margus Hunt – Defensive End – Southern MethodistThe Jets spent plenty of time with him, with Rex Ryan personally working him out. 2.5 TEBOWS! 

- Ryan Nassib – Quarterback – SyracuseAre Jets actually interested or just smoke-screening Buffalo? 2 TEBOWS! 

- Sylvester Williams – Defensive Tackle – North CarolinaJets could surprise and take a DT earlier than most expect. 2 TEBOWS! 

- Sio Moore – Outside Linebacker – UConn - If the Jets don’t address OLB early in round 1, he becomes that much more likely of a pick. 3 TEBOWS! 

- Zach Ertz – Tight End – StanfordThe Jets need a starting tight end, badly. 3 TEBOWS! 

- Giovanni Bernard – Running Back – North Carolina - (Still waiting on Chris Ivory trade). 1 TEBOW! 

TEEE-BOOWWWWW

  2. I thought Tebows were about how exciting or good something is. Was confused until I read the clarification in the comments.

  3. I will be happy if I see the following selections

    9th Tavon Austin
    13th Barkevious Mingo/ Jarvis Jones
    39th D.J. Hayden
