Mock Draft: Different from my Usual Dream Scenario (Part Two Updated)

Like a kid in a D.A.R.E ad: if everyone is doing it, I guess I should too.

A lot of my posts on GGN have surrounded the ideal. My fantasy drafts, where prospects of both BPA and need fall to us, ripe and ready to be impact starters. Not this time. This mock comes with the knowledge that I won't get Ansah and Eifert at 9 and 13 and that not every pick will start or even pan out. There will be no double trades and assumptions that every team that has floated to the media the possibility of moving up will want to play ball with the Jets.

But there will be some. I am going to trust Idzik's ability to negotiate trades and see potential. And though they probably should of been fired in the past, I am going to trust our scouting teams ability to advise.

In this mock I project two scenarios.

The 1st: the Jet's trade the 9th pick to Vikings for their 23rd and 25th.

The 2nd: the Jet's trade their 13th pick to the 49ers for their 31st and the 34th.

I rationalize these trades with the knowledge that both these teams want playmakers: Vikings departure of Percy Harvin, 49ers to supplement Kapernicks development and that the 49ers lack of cap space to sign all their picks. Both these scenarios include the Jet's trading the 5th for Ivory.

Scenario 1:

1 (13): Tyler Eifert (TE).

We instantly gain an impact TE that should thrive in a WCO. Security blanket for Sanchez and 2013/2014 rookie underneath.

1 (23): Jarvis Jones / Tank Carradine (OLB/DE).

Jarvis Jones falls because of his spinal condition, which in all actuality is minimal. We take a risk on him and the reason why will be shown in the next pick. If Jones is selected we snag Tank Carradine who's as explosive as they come.

1 (25): Margus Hunt (DE/OLB).

Double tap on DE/OLB. Hunt's size to speed ratio is just plain stupid. Two prospects with tremendous upside and potential risk. We expect to hit on at least one of them and trust Rex's develop both into beasts.

2 (39): Rober Woods (WR).

Quick, shifty, and above all dependable. Woods has insane hands and runs great routes. I watch USC so I can tell you Woods is the real deal. Marqise Lee may get a lot of hype, but Woods is the kinda player that wins you games on clutch time catches.

3 (72): Eric Reid (FS).

The real deal at Free Safety could hopefully start in 2 to 3 years.

4 (106): Brian Winters (G).

Guard depth, competition for Ducasse. Thing about the Guard position is that while these prospects may be different, there is not a tremendous amount difference in the impact that they will have on a team. Brian Winters is a perfectly good guard that could contribute nicely to a top 5 line. Note I'm not saying he gets the same push as Warmack, but I'd rather draft a guy that is elite at getting to the quarterback than one that pushes an extra yard while run blocking.

5: Traded to the Saints for Chris Ivory.

6 (178): Kniles Davis (RB).

I think the kid could be really special. Worth having on the practice squad. Give him time to develop and get comfortable.

7 (215): Khaled Holmes (C)

Center from USC. Bring him in, see how looks, maybe he can learn a thing or two from Mangold.

That's it for now folks. Part two coming soon.

Scenario 2:

1 (9): Ziggy Ansah (TE).

I get my guy and flip a shit. He struggles adjusting to NFL speed and strength for the first six games, but with Rex's tutelage breaks out against the Patriots week 7.

1 (31): Keenan Allen (WR):

We draft a true playmaker, who fell due to concerns over straight line speed. Immediately bolsters Wide Outs spurs competition with Stephen Hill.

1 (34): Tank Carradine (DE/OLB)

Double tap on DE/OLB. Tank is as explosive as they come. Two prospects with tremendous upside and potential risk. We expect to hit on at least one of them and trust Rex's develop both into beasts.

2 (39): Zach Ertz (TE).

Ertz can flat out play and 2013 will do it with a chip on his shoulder after Eifert gets drafted ahead of him.

3 (72): Eric Reid (FS).

The real deal at Free Safety, could hopefully start in 2 to 3 years.

4 (106): Brian Winters (G).

Guard depth, competition for Ducasse. Thing about the Guard position is that while these prospects may be different, there is not a tremendous amount difference in the impact that they will have on a team. Brian Winters is a perfectly good guard that could contribute nicely to a top 5 line.
