NFL Draft 2013 – Five Questions For The New York Jets

Five questions for the New York Jets heading into the 2013 NFL Draft

The 2013 NFL Draft is a little less than one month away. Currently, the New York Jets have the 9th overall pick and then a pick in every round following. Obviously that could be subject to change if Darrelle Revis is traded in the next few weeks. There has rarely been a Jets off-season so well shrouded in radio silence than the current one being led by new GM John Idzik. A newly quiet Florham Park makes the Jets approach to the NFL Draft filled with question marks, here are few of the more prominent ones –

Turn On The Jets NFL Draft Big Board 4.0

It’s that time of the year, before the NFL draft, when prospects are evaluated and re-evaluated after countless hours of watching film, watching film again, and watching film for perhaps a third time, on NFL prospects. While players continue to rise and fall, in terms of draft stock, as we inch closer to late April, we are finally getting a feel for where each player ranks among their respective peers.

2013 NFL Draft: A Draft Day Trade?

Frank Giasone explores the possibility of the New York Jets trading down in the upcoming NFL Draft

‘Tis the season of speculation, and with our “pals” in the mainstream media relentlessly pushing their tired, negative agenda, I figured what better way to ignore the pessimism, than with little Draft Day trade foolery?

Sitting with a grand total of seven picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, and with a number of roster spots still needing to be filled, General Manager John Idzik & Co. could certainly benefit by increasing their odds this April. As we witnessed from 2008-10, poor drafts can have a devastating impact on an organization. And as the Jets attempt to regroup following the Mike Tannenbaum Era–one that saw the Jets trade up at least once in five of the last six drafts–a change in philosophy would certainly be as refreshing as it would be effective.

New York Jets: Four Round Mock Draft

Staff Writer Frank Giasone highlights some potential 2013 NFL Draft scenarios for the New York Jets in rounds 1-4.

This is where things really get interesting. With April 25th quickly approaching, the excitement surrounding the 2013 NFL Draft gets amped up. For the New York Jets, this draft is one of the most important in recent memory, as the chances to rebuild (or reload, if you’re an optimist) a roster in desperate need of talent will hinge on a solid three days at Radio City Music Hall.

Along with a heightened anticipation comes a hoard of mock drafts from draft analysts everywhere. With countless scenarios capable of playing out, mocks don’t offer much more than educated guesswork. But while we all know it’s an inexact science, the truth is, they’re fun to read.

So it’s with those factors in mind that I decided to put together a four-round mock draft solely from the Jets perspective including multiple draft selections for each round, bracing for the likelihood that the most highly sought after player will be off the board when the Jets pick.

The Film Don’t Lie: Chance Warmack vs. Jonathan Cooper

With experts starting to reexamine who the best OG is in the NFL Draft, Mike Nolan takes a look at the film to break down Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper

In this post combine lull, a few draft prognosticators have gone on record to say that Jonathan Cooper is a better OG prospect than Chance Warmack. This is most likely due to Cooper’s excellent combine performance. Sometimes the combine can generate hype in the media that really isn’t prevalent in NFL War Rooms. Considering the Jets’ 2012 starting guards are currently unrestricted free agents and the team could be eyeing up a replacement as high as the 9th pick, let’s look at the tape to see who is really the better prospect.
