The first two days of the draft are in the books, and the Jets are in a much different place than they once were.
It is hard to argue with any of their four picks so far: they were all taken in appropriate places of the draft, and in Geno Smith's case, almost an entire round later than projected and will all at least compete for starting jobs right off the bat.
However, the Jets still have a lot of holes on both sides of the ball and they cut into their base of day three selections after finally making the trade for Chris Ivory.
Here is my final mock draft for the Jets with just four rounds (and three picks) remaining.
Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
One of the biggest needs on the Jets' roster that has yet to be addressed is safety, as the current starters are set to be sophomore player Josh Bush and veteran Dawan Landry.
Meanwhile, Jefferson is a versatile player who can play deep in coverage, cover slot receivers and make big plays against the run. He has tremendous hip flexibility that allows him to turn and run with quicker receivers.
However, at 5'11", Jefferson is limited in terms of how he can cover some of the bigger tight ends in the AFC East. There are also some concerns about his lack of elite speed and overly aggressive tackling habits.
Still, in the fifth round, Jefferson provides good value as a safety that can play multiple positions from day one.
Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State
In addition to the safety position, the cupboard is almost completely barren at tight end with Jeff Cumberland slated as the lone starter with significant NFL experience.
Sims is a massive player at 6'6" and uses his massive frame to be a devastating blocker in the run game, but he would be an even better blocker if he perfected his technique. He is also a tremendous size mismatch for safeties and is faster than most linebackers, making him an excellent red-zone target.
However, Sims is a bit of an awkward mover who is very raw in his route-running. He tends to almost stumble around with the ball in his hands and does not make many defenders miss.
Either way, Sims would be able to step in and relieve as a blocking tight end as he refines his game as a receiver.
Travis Johnson, DE/OLB, San Diego State
The Jets do have a pair of veteran outside linebacker that they can start without disastrous results, but they need to start adding young talent to a position that has been neglected for far too long.
Johnson comes from a smaller program at San Jose State, but he has underrated athleticism and displays many traits that translate well to the NFL. He can bend the edge and has an array of pass-rushing moves to work with.
The 2012 MAC Defensive Player of the Year, Travis plays with a relentless motor and has not missed a game in 38-straight starts.
He will, however, need to put on some weight at just 240 pounds and make the conversion to outside linebacker having played right end on just about every snap.
Travis has the makings of an excellent special teams player that has a chance to develop into a quality pass-rusher.
