SB Nation has a new NFL mock draft. The blogwide leader has University of Oregon linebacker Dion Jordan going to the Jets with the 9th pick.
A player with Jordan's pure ability would be hard to pass up with the ninth pick in the draft. Jordan or guard Chance Warmack would be solid picks for the Jets. Jordan is the choice here because of better positional value in the first round.
The first eight picks in this mock were Luke Joeckel, Geno Smith, Sharrif Floyd, Eric Fisher, Ziggy Ansah, Dee Milliner, Lane Johnson, and Cordarrelle Patterson.
This scenario would largely give the Jets the pick of the litter should they decide to add an edge rusher. Barkevious Mingo goes 11th to the San Diego Chargers, and Jarvis Jones goes 15th to the New Orleans Saints.
What are your thoughts on this? Was Jordan the right selection for the Jets? Should they have gone elsewhere?
