New York Jets 2012 Mock Draft: Best-Case Scenario 7-Round Predictions

Unless the New York Jets and their general manager Mike Tannenbaum think signing "Saint Tim Tebow," Chaz Schilens and oft-injured LaRon Landry will solve all of the team's problems from last season, there's still a lot of work to be done in the upcoming draft.

The Jets still have a glaring hole at right tackle due to the pitiful performance that Wayne Hunter was responsible for last season.

They still have need at the safety position as Landry can be good on the field but who knows when he's actually going to be on it. He missed 15 games the last two seasons due to an Achilles injury that instead of getting surgically repaired, he chose to use alternative methods.

These days Landry seems to be more interested in bodybuilding than football.

While Tebow could improve on a running game that was ranked 22nd in the league last season—a change of pace back to complement Shonn Greene could improve it even more.

Weapons for Mark Sanchez are still needed. Recently signed Chaz Schilens has the size at 6'4'' 225, and the speed to be Sanchez's No.1 receiver, but there's also a reason why Schilens only has 72 receptions in his four-year career.

The Jets also still need a pass-rusher and a linebacker who can inject some youth into their aging unit.

Here are the best-case-scenario picks for the seven rounds in the upcoming draft.
