The main page has another Mock Draft out. Once again, the Jets are projected to pick a tight end from Notre Dame.
30. New York Jets: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: some smart team is going to take Rudolph in the first round, pair him with a good tight end, and emulate the Patriots' two-TE offense. Who better than their division rival Jets, who might lose Braylon Edwards at wide receiver this off-season?
This was not a very popular pick the first time around. Has anybody changed their mind? I do not think it is crazy to see it playing out this way. Mike Tannenbaum and company have shown a tendency to pick guys who are not necessarily at positions of need. I am not sure, however, I agree with the Jets passing on Justin Houston to take Rudolph.
Of course, it is possible for the Jets to trade up to land a guy they really like. Mocks cannot account for this.
