Why the Jets need a DB in the first round

If you go look at season predictions for the upcoming season, most are not optimistic about the Jets, though not because of lack of playmakers on offense, it's the pass defense that they call in to question. I know everyone is dying to get a receiver in the 1st round, but it's simply not our biggest need. We don't have a true number one receiver, but have a a top flight rushing attack to lean on, and as I'm sure you've heard a thousand times, this is a really deep Draft class and it shouldn't be hard to get a number one pass catcher in the 2nd round. We lost our top two corners in two consecutive years, and everyone forgets that Dee Milliner is still an injury risk, There's a chance that Kyle Wilson could be our number one guy midseason. Don't take that the wrong way though, I'm a fan of Milliner, and pairing him with a guy like Dennard, Gilbert, or Fuller, we could have a top corner duo for years to come. You also have to look at our schedule this year, we have Detroit, Chicago and Denver among other teams with good passing attacks on our schedule, and this is a make or break year for Rex Ryan, who I feel is essential to this team. For Rex to keep his job, they will need a DB, To either line up opposite or be behind Dee Milliner, and I don't see anyone on our roster or on the market who can do that.
