This is a follow up to my post on the 27th of January in relation to Internet Mock Drafts and who they have the Jets selecting. If you missed it and want to check it out then please click HERE
I honestly thought that after the Senior Bowl there would be a lot of updated drafts. Unfortunately there really wasn't and only a few have been updated. As promised though I'm going to try and make this a weekly post so here are three updated drafts from last week and four brand new selections as well.
Dane Brugler, CBS: Previous selection: Mark Barron, New Selection: Melvin Ingram
Walter Football: Previous selection: Michael Floyd, New Selection: Courtney Upshaw
NFL's Future: Previous selection: Courtney Upshaw, New Selection: Whitney Mercilus
Football's Future: New Entry, Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
The Jets must address their anemic offense this off season. They could have a completely new look on offense, and two new receivers could be a part of that. Jeffery brings a younger version of Plaxico Burress to the team, with his combination of size and presence over the middle and in the red zone.
Rant Sports: New Entry, Riley Reiff, RT, Iowa
It probably would be a miracle if Riley Reiff slipped this far. The Jets would have to take Reiff if he falls to this pick by some miracle. Wayne Hunter has no business starting at right tackle. Vladimir Ducasse has not proven that he can take the right tackle job from Wayne Hunter. Riley Reiff has to be the selection at this point.
A bookend tandem of Debrickishaw Ferguson and Riley Reiff would really buy Mark Sanchez the time he needs. Holmes should be back next season. A flanker receiver will be added in 2013 if Holmes cannot get his act together.
My NFL Draft: New Entry, Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
NFL Draft Geek: New Entry, Mark Barron, S, Alabama
I went back and forth on this one between Mark Barron and Nick Perry. Both are Pass Rusher and Safety are pressing needs, but this years Safety class pretty much starts and ends with Mark Barron, so they won't be able to get a good one later. Whereas for a Pass Rusher they could get a guy like Jonathan Massaquoi or Vinny Curry later on. Also Aaron Maybin played pretty well down the stretch, so he plays into the picture a little bit. On a defense with so many great players like Alabama, Mark Barron seems to be the guy who gets underrated. Barron really is a well rounded, and NFL Ready Safety. He excels in coverage, playing an excellent "Centerfield", while also quickly jumps up and attacks everything underneath. He's a slightly better version of Kerry Rhodes, who the Jets are really missing.
