"Too Early To Tell" Jets Mock Draft

Hey GGN. So it's a couple weeks away from mid-season in the NFL, and it is mid-season in the NCAA. Mock drafts are starting to spring up so I thought I'd take a crack with my first official mock of the 2011 season. Without further adieu:

Pick #1, Round 1: Michael Floyd, Wr, Notre Dame - 6'3" 227 lbs

The Jets have had trouble on offense this year more than anything. Pass rushers do not win games. Those big stat-getters on the offense do. That is why I am going against the grain and choosing Michael Floyd, the 6'3", 227 pound deep-threat Wide Receiver from Notre Dame. Floyd consistently put up huge receiving numbers this season. Through 6 games, he has 53 receptions for 639 yards and 4 touchdowns! Almost 10 receptions and over 100 yards receiving per game. Plaxico Burress will not be on the team next season, and we need to replace him with a younger version of him. Michael Floyd should be a great receiver at the NFL level.

 

Pick #2, Round 2: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall - 6'5" 242 lbs

NOW we pick up a pass rusher. Vinny curry has had a monster season, recording 43 tackles and 9.5 sacks through 7 games. Curry is a bit undersized as a defensive end at 6'5" 242 punds, but should be just right to play outside linebacker at the NFL level. Curry uses a variety of moves to get to the quarterback, and is undoubtedly an upgrade over Jamaal Westerman. Curry plays the run very well too, which is definitely attractive for the 26th ranked run defense. 

 

Pick #3, Round 3: Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State - 6'0" 191 lbs

This is where you guys will probably disagree with me. I'm sorry but I for one am tired of people talking about Sanchez having "upside" and that he's "only in his third year". Freeman has shown what he's got. Stafford has strutted his stuff. Hell, even Sam Bradford might be a better quarterback than Sanchez at this point. The only reason Kellen Moore is not a first round quarterback is because he is supposedly 6'0". I don't think his height should really be that big of a factor, however. One, he has played behind an offensive line whose average height is 6'3". Two, Drew Brees, one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL is 6'0". There is no reason why height should so greatly impact the most accurate quarterback in the 2012 draft class. If Moore can't take over as the starter, at least he'll actually provide Sanchez with some good competition in training camp.

 

Pick #4, Round 4: Bernard Pierce, RB, Temple - 6'1" 218 lbs

 

Pick #5. Round 5: Jeremiah Sirles, OT, Nebraska - 6'6" 320 lbs

 

Pick #6, Round 6: George Iloka, S, Boise State - 6'3" 216 lbs

 

Pick #7, Round 7: Jaymes Brooks, OG, Virginia Tech - 6'2" 307 lbs

 

Pick #8, Round 7: Bert Reed, WR, Florida State - 5'10" 183 lbs
