Who's Still On the Board?

The first round madness is over, the smoke has cleared, giving us a chance to take a look at who is still left and what could happen. Here's a breakdown of players the Jets may be interested in that are still on the board. 

Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA: Obviously, if the Jets want him, they are going to have to trade up, and trade up a lot. Given the price they will have to pay, which may be a future 1st or 2nd round pick, I would not approve of such a move for Ayers. But if he slips to the end of the 2nd, which I doubt, Tanny may start to get some ideas.  

Rahim Moore, S, UCLA: With all of these reaches for a QB and offensive lineman, good players like Moore may slip to reachable levels. At this point, it wouldn't shock me if he fell to the top of the third. 

Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh: The Jets were actually looking at this guy in the late first as a backup option. Luckily, they didn't have to reach for this guy. I could see him taking a nosedive. 

Brooks Reed, DE/OLB, Arizona: A popular choice around here, Reed slid into the second. This is more because there were so many other good players left for the later 1st round picks than expected. 

"Stand Pat" Options

Sam Acho, DE, Texas - I thought he wouldn't make it out of the first, but all of these QB reaches are pushing solid players to good teams. 

Kenrick Ellis, DT, Hampton - A poor man's Phil Taylor, it would be interesting for the JEts to gamble on two small school guys in the same draft.
