The Jets were once again on the clock in Mocking the Draft's bloggers mock. In the second round, I picked Harrison Smith, a safety from Notre Dame for the Jets.


The rationale was as follows. I did not see any pass rushers who were better value picks. Right or wrong, it seems like the front office is happy with the status quo at right tackle and will choose to go the free agent route at wide receiver. Those are the big needs so I went with the safety. Smith is a relatively safe pick. He has the tools to play centerfield, which is a good compliment to an in the box safety like Laron Landry. More importantly, he gets Eric Smith out of the starting lineup.

I took Melvin Ingram in the first round and Smith in the second. Grade my Draft, GGN. For reference, I have posted the way the Draft went before this pick under the jump.
