In Matt Miller's latest mock draft, he has the New York Jets selecting two wide receivers, a running back, a linebacker, two defensive ends and an offensive tackle.
All—in—all, this would be a pretty good haul. But to get two wide receivers, especially one with your first overall pick, seems a little of a stretch considering the team is going back to the ground and pound game under new offense coordinator Tony Sparano.
Miller also failed to address the safety position, a major area of need for the Jets, since starting strong safety Jim Leonard may be leaving in free agency, and Eric Smith proved to be unproductive this season.
The safety position can be fulfilled in free agency though with the restructuring of D'Brickashaw Ferguson's contract that gave general manager Mike Tannenbaum $7.5 million to spend on Michael Griffin, Reggie Nelson, or another free-agent safety he may have his eye on in the open market.
Here's my take on each Jets' selection in Miller's mock draft.
