The Jets will absolutely steal one of the best wide receivers in the draft with the first pick of the second round. After a poor combine, Alshon Jeffery has slipped below Michael Floyd and slips into Day 2 in many popular mock drafts.
How do the Jets get the second round pick? Let me elaborate.
The Rams trade the second pick to the Browns for their first-round picks. I then predict the Jets trade down with the Rams by swapping first and second-round picks. This will let the Jets get Jeffery, a big red-zone target who will be the rich man's Plaxico Burress for years to come.
Also, after a year-long hiatus, Braylon Edwards will be back. He is a big wide receiver who is a great deep threat. Personally, I thought Braylon's absence is what killed the Jets passing game.
Without Braylon, Sanchez lost his deep threat, containing the passing game and making defense easy. Don't believe me? Think—how many deep throws did Sanchez make in 2010? How many were to Braylon?
Now, how many did he throw in 2011? A lot less.
The other major figure is Santonio Holmes. Despite being pulled out in the last game, Holmes is still a great receiver. More importantly, the Jets have too much money tied into him. Holmes will return. Also, look for Patrick Turner to have an expanded role next year.
