Initial Draft Outlook

via <a href=""></a>

I hope you guys are not feeling too down this morning, I have to admit I woke up with a sense of optimism, usually not experienced after a loss in the AFC Championship game. My first thought was not about what happened, but what is about to happen. Where are the New York Jets going?, well first let's take a quick look at the 2010 NFL draft.

As far as I'm aware right now, we have the following selections in the 2010 NFL draft

New York Jets First Round Selection

New York Jets Second Round Selection

Philadelphia Eagles Fifth Round Selection

New York Jets Sixth Round Selection

New York Jets Seventh Round Selection

Our 3rd and 5th round selections will go to the Browns for Braylon Edwards (bargain), and our 4th round selection will go to the Eagles for Sheppard (although I'm still very mixed up on that trade, it seems like I hear different scenarios every single week), it could of been as high as a 2nd but based on playing time it will be a 4th. If I have this wrong then let me know and will amend it.

We also sent a conditional pick to Detroit for Kevin O'Connell, not sure what that will be, probably the 7th round selection, but I can't see that confirmed anywhere. So as such, will leave it as it is.

So where do you think we should go in the first round? If you could vote in the poll then we could get a clearer indication. Personally I feel we need to go for a player like Jared Odrick from Penn State, Corey Wootton from Northwestern or Arthur Jones from Syracuse. Of course a lot will depend on combine numbers as to where these players will be projected. However Wootton may be a faller because of injury problems.

Over the course of the off-season, we will be previewing a lot of the players that are possibly on the radar, starting with the players at the position you think we should target initially.
