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.
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.
