The Jets would love to take dominant pass rusher Courtney Upshaw with this pick, but the outside linebacker will likely be a Top 10 selection after a monster Senior Bowl.
Instead, New York will settle for Upshaw's teammate, safety Mark Barron.
Barron is by far the best player in a weak safety class this year. He possesses terrific smarts on the field, as well as excellent strength.
However, Barron's most valuable attribute is his size. The Alabama star comes in at 6-2 and 218 pounds. He could manage to contain the elite pass catching tight ends in the NFL, including Patriots star Rob Gronkowski.
Gang Green is a mess at the safety position right now, but Barron would sure up the secondary and provide the team with an immediate, effective defensive starter.
Barron will excel at the next level.
