New general manager John Idzik graded average in his attempt to rebuild the New York Jets at the 2013 NFL draft.

The Jets missed an opportunity to add depth at several key positions such as safety, tight end and wide receiver.

Idzik pulled the trigger on quarterback Geno Smith but opted not to add a dynamic playmaker capable of instantly contributing to a stagnant offense that ranked among the worst in the league last season.

The Jets were mildly successful in the first round, however, claiming the rights to cornerback Dee Milliner and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.

The team's first two draft picks solidified the fact that head coach Rex Ryan still owns significant power in determining roster construction, which counteracts the predisposed notion that the Jets' boisterous leader had reached lame-duck status.

The following slideshow details the projected impact of each Jets draft selection in 2013.
