TOJ Question – Who Will Jets Take With 30th Pick?

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 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.”
