SB Nation Mock: Mark Barron to the Jets

The mothership has its newest mock draft out, and it has the Jets taking Alabama safety Mark Barron at 16.

Mark Barron is this draft class' best safety and the Jets definitely need help there. Strong safetyJim Leonhard is coming back from another season-ending injury, and the Jets may look for somebody more reliable. Free safety Eric Smith is a liability in coverage as well. Barron has a strong safety body type, and he has the speed to be good in coverage. This would be a solid pick for the Jets to help shore up their secondary.

Make no mistake about it. The Jets need a safety. I am not sure I would dig this pick, however, if the Draft went this way. If you click the link, you will see this mock has the Jets taking Barron with Trent Richardson, Mike Adams, Kendall Wright, Cordy Glenn, Melvin Ingram, and Dre Kirpatrick still on the board. It is only my view, but I am with the people who believe Barron getting a rating this high is a result of a weak safety class.
