1ST ROUND: Kelvin Benjamin
WR, Florida State- 6’6" 234
I think Benjamin is going to be a dominant #1 receiver in the NFL. He is a huge target, and he knows how to use his body to box out smaller defensive backs. He is a great athlete and has the ability to outjump the defender for a ball so he can make big plays even when covered. He also has the speed to beat the defense deep. He drops a few too many passes, but will make up for his drops with incredible catches. I personally think he is going to be a better player than Mike Evans. We would be crazy to pass on him at 18.
2ND ROUND: Tre Mason
RB, Auburn- 5’10" 196
Mason really impressed me with his performance against FSU in the National Championship Game. His running style is somewhat similar to LeSean McCoy. He explodes through the hole, and doesn’t usually go down after initial contact. He has the speed to turn the corner and break off big runs, but also picks up the tough yards in between the tackles. As much as I like Ivory, I think Mason is too good to pass up in the 2nd round. I think they can form a terrific running back tandem.
TE, Iowa- 6’7" 265
Ebron, Amaro, and ASJ have received a ton of hype, and are looked at as probable first round picks. Not that they don’t deserve it, but I think Fiedorowicz belongs in that category as well. He is even bigger than Gronk, and I think he can be a similar redzone target in the NFL. He is simply too big to cover, and he is very underrated athletically. I think he would be a steal in the 3rd round.
3RD ROUND: Jeremiah Attaochu
OLB, Georgia Tech- 6’3" 242
Attaochu is one of my favorite players in the draft. He projects well as an 3-4 OLB and has good size for the position. He played standing up for most of his time at Georgia Tech, so the transition to the NFL should be smooth. He is a natural pass rusher with speed and power. He recorded 12.5 sacks this season, and would be a great replacement for Calvin Pace.
4TH ROUND Terrence Brooks
S, Florida State- 5’11" 197
Brooks comes from a National Championship team that is loaded with NFL prospects. Still, he has managed to stand out with his play this season recording 54 tackles and 2 interceptions. He is an instinctive and physical and has decent size for the position.
CB, Oklahoma- 6’1" 181
Colvin excels in man coverage, which makes him a great fit for Rex Ryan’s defense. He is big for the position, and has the speed to run with receivers down the field. He is a very good tackler and has a physical style of play that fits this team mentality
5TH ROUND: Colt Lyerla
TE, Oregon- 6’5" 246
This might be a little high for Lyerla, considering he quit on his team and got arrested. But I think the talent is too good for us to pass up, especially with over 10 picks in this draft. Lyerla is a 1st round talent, with the speed and size to be a matchup nightmare in the NFL. Earlier this season, many considered him to be the best TE in the draft.
6TH ROUND: Jeremy Gallon
WR, Michigan- 5’8" 187
Maybe the most underrated receiver in the entire class. The only thing potentially holding Gallon back is his size. I think he compares very favorably to Tavon Austin. He is very fast and a threat to score every time he touches the field. He can be very effective out of the slot
6TH ROUND: Keith Price
QB, Washington- 6’1" 195
I think its worth taking a flyer on a QB late in the draft. Price doesn’t have a huge arm and is a little undersized, but he is an accurate passer with good mobility. He completed 66 percent of his passes with 20 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. I like him better than Simms as a developmental QB
7TH ROUND: Tom Hornsey
P, Memphis- 6’3" 195
Quigley was pretty mediocre this season. He wasn’t terrible, but we could definitely use an upgrade. With so many late round picks, I think it makes sense to use one of them and take the best punter available. Hornsey averaged 45.2 yards per punt in 2013.
7TH ROUND: Daryl Williams
OT, Oklahoma- 6’6" 315
In recent years, it has been the Jets strategy to use late round picks on developmental offensive linemen. I think they stick with that philosophy, and Daryl Williams would be a nice option. He played OT at OU, but would probably move inside to guard in the NFL. He has the size you look for in a developmental player, and had a good game against Alabama.
