Kevin Zielaznicki gives his mock of the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft…

With the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in the books and the first wave of free agents signed, many mock drafts are looking way different then they did a week ago. The 2017 NFL Draft is less than 50 days away and there is a ton of uncertainty about the top 10 selections due to the abundance of talent. Who will draft the first quarterback? Where will Leonard Fournette go? What will the Jets do?

Check out my predictions for the first round in my first 2017 mock draft.

New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse

Ryan Marcone on five second round targets for the New York Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft

For many fans, few things sum up the ineptitude of the modern era and serve as a metaphor for the dysfunction of the organization as a whole better than the recent curse of second round draft picks going bust. Since 2001, the dubious honor has gone to the likes of Mike Nugent, Kellen Clemens, Vlad Ducasse, Stephen Hill, and most recently Devin Smith and Christian Hackenberg.

Considering the rule of thumb that players taken in the first four rounds should eventually be developed into starters, and players taken in rounds one and two should be significant contributors from their rookie year, this is a major problem. It’s gotten to the point where fans are unsure if the Jets just pick bad players in Round 2, or if players become bad because the Jets picked them in Round 2. But luckily for the Jets, this year’s draft class is exceptionally deep, so there are several players who may be on the board that can end the losing streak. Here are my choices for Pick 39. Continue reading “New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse”

Scott Mason on the New York Jets approach to the NFL Draft in 2017…

Regardless of what the Jets do in free agency, it is crucial they hit on a high percentage of their draft picks, because that is what all of the best teams do. The Steelers, Seahawks, Packers, Ravens, and Patriots are all examples of perennial contenders who make the occasional free agent splash but understand that there four days in April that make or break the long-term health of a franchise.

New York Jets – No Running Back With 6th Overall Pick

Joe Caporoso on why the New York Jets should not consider a running back with the 6th overall pick

A popular mock draft selection for the New York Jets is either LSU running back Leonard Fournette or FSU running back Dalvin Cook. Either selection would be a mistake for the Jets with the 6th overall pick as the team cannot afford to invest in a luxury position with their most valuable piece of capital to improve their roster this offseason.
