New York Jets Draft 2012: 5 Players the Jets Should Roll the Dice on

After rolling the dice on Tim Tebow in a trade, it's time for the New York Jets to get really creative and roll them again in the upcoming draft.

Through free agency, the Jets spent frugally and were able to address some of their needs with marginal players who may or may not work out.

The LaRon Landry signing will provide an upgrade at safety if he is able to stay healthy. But, he is still a flawed player as he is not strong in coverage and is more of an in-the-box safety who seems to prefer to deliver the highlight reel hit on opposing runners.

New York tried a low risk move to bolster their receiving corps with signing the 6'4'', former Oakland Raider Chaz Schilens. But, there is a reason why he only has 72 receptions in four seasons.

Every year, teams decide not to draft a player based on a slow 40 time, character issues, questionable competition, or whatever reason. Future Hall of Famer Randy Moss even fell all the way to 21 in the 1998 draft because of minor legal trouble.

Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones is still regretting not selecting Moss with the eighth overall pick.

If the Jets don't want to be filled with regret like Jones, they need to take a chance on the following five players.
