ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper has released version 4.0 of his mock draft, and he has a set up with the Jets that seemed popular when released earlier. I tweeted the selections to see the feedback and it seems that if the board falls as Kiper predicts, a lot of Jets fans will be happy.

Unfortunately it is insider content, so unless you have ESPN insider you will have to take my word for it.

#16 - Jets Select, Courtney Upshaw, OLB Alabama

#47- Jets Select, Bobbie Massie, OT Old Miss

I had us taking Massie in my latest mock, so I absolutely love that selection, it's a perfect fit for the Jets and the kid of attack we want to run going forward. I can sign on for Upshaw, I'm still not 100% sold on him yet but he has enough upside to keep you excited about the prospect.

Just as a point of reference for our first round pick. Ingram, Blackmon, Floyd, Richardson and Barron were all gone,
