Gang Green Nation Community Mock Draft Pick #29

New, comments

You have spoken. 43% of you have decided the Jets should pick Jared Odrick. While not a clear majority, Odrick received substantially more than second place finisher Golden Tate, who registered 23%.

My reaction:

It's tough to argue with this pick. Odrick could have a chance to start right away whether the team resigns Marques Douglas or not. Mike Devito is currently the only guy under 30 on the defensive line rotation so it would be a good move to get younger up front. Beyond that, Odrick should develop into an excellent starter on the line. He can succeed as a 3-4 end or a 4-3 tackle. That's a good thing on account of how the Jets mix up their fronts.

I won't lie. I'm always partial to pass rushers so I probably would have gone with Jerry Hughes. He is going to be a major impact player. The Jets can play Sione Pouha at tackle and move Kris Jenkins to end in 2010. Even so, I'll hardly be upset if the team picks Odrick.
