While the 2013 NFL Draft is lacking somewhat in major stars, it has significant depth at many positions where the Jets require help. The scouting departments of many NFL teams will be tested when searching for the diamonds in the rough in this draft. Drafting an Andrew Luck or an RGIII is not hard—it is obvious. Finding a Russell Wilson-type player later in the draft is where the challenge lies.
The Jets have all seven of their picks this year, one in each round. Given the depth of the draft class and their needs, they could easily find three starters or more in this draft. Finding the right guys will depend not only on the Jets making the right decisions but also on serendipity allowing the players they need to be available.
Let us take an optimist's view and consider what the best-case scenarios are for the Jets. Here are the seven picks they would make in a perfect world where everything goes their way.
