NFL Draft 2013 – Turn On The Jets Mike Nolan Mock Draft 1.0

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.

New York Jets – Stay Away From Quarterback In Top Ten

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.
