There are a few names we often hear when we're talking about the 2013 NFL Draft. Geno Smith, Jarvis Jones, Cordarrelle Patterson are just a few of them. But the top-tier players are few and far between, and the vast majority of the draft is composed of players the average fan has never heard of. A good team will make good use of their first round selections. A great team will find value throughout the entire draft.
I wanted to create a list to highlight value in the draft that, I believe, would fit in well on the New York Jets. My only rule was not to list players that I believe will be taken in the first round of the draft. I am a strong opponent to groupthink, which is especially easy to get sucked into when it comes to the draft, so I have done my best to think for myself about each player's upside and NFL-potential. Each name is linked to a scouting report of that player. Because none of them are first round picks, they are not perfect prospects, which is important to keep in mind (so you don't automatically dismiss them as undraftable). Here is my list of underrated players that you may or may not have heard of, that I think will make the Jets very happy:
|QB||Zac Dysert||Miami (OH)||3rd|
|LG||Brian Winters||Kent St.||3rd|
|RG||David Quessenberry||San Diego St.||4th|
|DE2||Cornelius Carradine||Florida St.||2nd|
|CB1||Jordan Poyer||Oregon St.||2nd|
|SS||Ray Ray Armstrong||Miami||6th-UDFA|
