Even after their recent flurry of free-agent signings, the New York Jets still have a ton of holes to fill in their starting lineup.

On the surface, it would be logical for the Jets to address just about any position on the field besides running back or tight end with their first-round pick.

They need a pass-rusher, No. 1 wide receiver, a couple of guards, a safety and a tackle, and that's just for starters.

If the Jets hope to be competitive in 2013, they need to find immediate impact players at multiple positions and effective starters in other rounds.

If they truly do plan on trying their best in 2013, they must avoid the following five players, assuming they remain at the No. 9 position in the draft.
