Turn On The Jets Draft Writer Mike Nolan submits his predictions for the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft
With the first round of the NFL Draft only 9 days away, it is time to ramp up the mock drafts. This version does not account for trades, which will happen. Some teams in the top half that I can see making trades on draft day are Cleveland, Miami, and San Diego. There will be QBs taken in the 1st round, just not with any of the current picks, as a team like Arizona or Buffalo could trade into the mid to bottom first round to get a QB.

The New York Jets have reportedly agreed to terms with recently released OLB Calvin Pace on a one year deal. While this move may not be entirely popular among Jets fans, bringing Pace back without long term ties is a sensible move for a variety of reasons.

New York Jets fans should be optimistic about the early returns on new GM John Idzik
The New York Jets went through an exhaustive process to find their new General Manager after firing Mike Tannenbaum. John Idzik wasn’t a flashy name and he didn’t captivate the New York media with an opening press conference filled with witty, quotable remarks. Yet, just about every decision he has made since then has given reason for optimism.

TJ Rosenthal goes No Huddle on the New York Jets various issues heading into off-season workouts
The New York Jets are reportedly interested in trading for New Orleans Saints Restricted Free Agent Running Back, Chris Ivory. The Jets hosted Ivory for a visit on Friday, but are unlikely to sign him to an offer sheet due to the second round tender New Orleans placed on him earlier this offseason. New York would prefer to exchange a later round draft pick for Ivory, rather than surrendering the 39th overall pick, according to multiple reports.

Mike Donnelly grades the New York Jets line-up changes heading from 2012 to 2013
As we know by now, much has been made this offseason about the amount of players the Jets have lost to free agency. Whether it is from the Jets-hating media, or self-loathing Jets fans themselves, I’m under the impression that many people think the Jets shouldn’t even show up this season because they lost several underwhelming pieces from last year’s 6-win team. I don’t exactly see it that way, because most of the players the Jets lost were either underachievers or washed up veterans who had outlived their usefulness. I’m going to go position-by-position and compare last year’s lineup to the projected 2013 lineup and give them a positive or negative grade. For the purposes of this column, the points will be called “Tebows” and the grading system will go from +2 Tebows for a major upgrade to -2 Tebows for a major downgrade, and anything in between.

Why the New York Jets should stay away from Geno Smith in round one of the NFL Draft
There has been speculation about the New York Jets potentially selecting West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft. Yes, the Jets have shown a decent amount of pre-draft interest and yes considering Mark Sanchez’s performance last year, on the surface there is some sensibility to selecting the consensus top quarterback in the upcoming draft class. However, taking Smith with their 9th overall pick or even the 13th overall pick potentially acquired in a Darrelle Revis trade would be a mistake…a mistake that the Jets aren’t likely to make.
