Mike Nolan takes a deeper look at New York Jets draft pick Sheldon Richardson to see where he fits in Rex Ryan’s defense
The Jets’ second first round pick last night left a lot of people scratching their heads. The concern wasn’t focused on Sheldon Richardson’s talent, but focused on the fact that they selected a defensive lineman in the first round for the third straight year despite more urgent needs at other positions.

With the 13th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the New York Jets selected Missouri Defensive Tackle Sheldon Richardson. While this move seemed to have many fans, analysts, and spectators confused considering the overall depth on the defensive line, along with the immense amount of holes throughout the roster, Jets General Manager John Idzik was adamant in his draft approach of selecting talent over specific position. According to Idzik, Richardson and CB Dee Milliner, selected by the Jets with the 9th overall pick, were two of the top players on New York’s board and, although Idzik entertained trade offers, he did not feel as though these offers surpassed the grades he had on either player.

Are we so sure that Rex Ryan is a lame duck coach who has no influence in Florham Park anymore?

The case for the New York jets drafting West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin
One of the most intriguing options for the New York Jets in the upcoming NFL Draft is West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin. Surprisingly there seems to be many Jets fans hesitant about using the 9th or 13th pick on him, despite him providing strong value at either location. Among the complaints I consistently hear about Austin are his lack of size, durability issues, a lack of need for him because of Jeremy Kerley being the team’s slot receiver and him not having the capability to be a lead playmaker on offense. These excuses to avoid Austin are misguided. The Jets offense is in desperate need for a player like Austin, who is a truly a “wow” player, something the Jets have lacked seemingly forever.
