How Each Draft Pick Fits into New York Jets' Plan in 2012

Going into this year's draft, the New York Jets had a few positions of need to address. They needed to find a legitimate pass-rusher, upgrade at safety and get younger at linebacker.

On the offensive side of the ball, they had to find a No. 1 or 2 prototypical, tall receiver to play opposite Santonio Holmes. The Jets also had to sure up the running game by drafting an offensive lineman/men and another running back.

New York did a good job of addressing all of their needs. After trading up in the second round, New York came out of the draft with a total of eight picks.

The Jets got their pass-rusher with their first pick in North Carolina's Quinton Coples before selecting two wide receivers, two safeties, an offensive lineman, an outside linebacker and a running back.

Here's a review of each draft pick and how each will fit into the Jets' plan for next season.
