Position-by-Position 2013 NFL Draft Big Board for the New York Jets

It's never too early to start thinking about the NFL Draft, especially if your team looks as dead in the water as the New York Jets.  

Although the Jets do have five winnable games in front of them, they have given no indication that they can string together consistently strong play over that time to be able to run the table.  

If the Jets slip up just once and endure their eighth loss, that will effectively end their slim playoff hopes and put the fans' primary focus squarely on the draft.

Just in case that happens this week, the following slideshow will give you a starting point when looking at talent that could end up wearing green and white next year.

The list ranks the top five prospects at each position with some weight given to players who would fit the Jets' needs.  

Although there are players like Geno Smith and Jarvis Jones who have no chance to fall to the Jets where they are projected to select, they are still listed on the big board at the top of their respective positions.

One final rule is that if a player is listed at one position, it precludes him from being listed at another spot.  For example, Damontre Moore is listed as a defensive lineman because that is his primary position. 

He also projects as an NFL outside linebacker (and that's where the Jets would use him) but because he was listed as a lineman first, that's the only place you'll find him on this slideshow. 

With that being said, here's an early look at the big board for every position as it relates to the Jets 2013 draft class.
