Jets Pick in SB Nation Writers Mock

New, comments

Like we've been having here, SB Nation is running a mock draft for its football writers. The Jets are up, and I picked Jerry Hughes, a defensive end who would move to outside linebacker with the Jets. The way the Draft played out, this seemed like the obvious choice. Kindle, Graham, Cody, and Odrick were all gone. Golden Tate was there, but I'll take an elite pass rusher over a slot receiver. Dez Bryant was the only receiver gone, which means other slot options will fall to later in the Draft.

No trades were allowed. If they were, I'd imagine the Jets would have tried to package their first and second round pick to move to for Dez Bryant, who slipped into the 20's. Mike Tannenbaum loves to target elite talent.

What do you think? Was this a good pick?
