Looking into the draft im starting to lean further and further to trading down. At 16 the Jets
could go and draft a Nick Perry or a Melvin Ingram which could help the need of an OLB. We could end up with a value top 10 talent that falls for whatever reason that being Devon Still, Trent Richardson, Dre Kirkpatrick, Quinton Coples or whoever but the best way to build our team thro the draft will be to trade down untill the bottom of the 1st and target South Carolina's Stephon Gilmore.

Stephon Gilmore is a complete player who should flourish into a FS under Rex and his defensive staff. At 6'1 he has the size but more inportantly he has the talent, he makes quarterbacks pay for poor throws with centerfielder-like instincts and hands. He's Quiet, hard-working player who consistently gets praises from coaches and teammates about his work ethic and attitude. Puts in time in the film room, knows his opponents and defensive scheme inside and out. No worries about on-field effort, brings tenacious attitude on every play.
By getting a talent like Stephon Gilmore to place as our FS by trading back would leave us very flexible to either pick up another SS or go get a later pass rushing option weaather it be Jonathan Massaquoi, Bruce Irvin, possibly Vinny Curry. But the next issue we come across is that we cant cover from the linebacker position but there is a late round guy that has lined up at both DE and OLB and was used in college to cover the other team's TEs adding Kyle Wilber in a later round combined with Stephon Gilmore will help shut other offense's down.
Kyle Wilber from Wake Forest is a 6'4'' 240lb DE/OLB who was named to CBS Sports's top 10 players who helped themseleves at the East West Shrine game, can be the perfect project as an OLB or even ILB. He is not a great edge rusher but does the frame and long arms to be built up and as a projected 5th round pick he could be well worth his value if he can help neutralize a TE when the Jets get destroyed by good TEs.
