New York Jets: Top Six Big Board

New, comments
Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

As you all know, teams come up with big boards of either the horizontal or vertical variety that rank prospects for the NFL Draft. As players are selected, teams can remove them from their big board, and theoretically, whoever the highest ranking player remaining when it's their turn to pick shall be the choice.

Luckily for us, that only means it's necessary to come up with a big board of six players for the New York Jets first selection (assuming, of course, that they don't trade down). Whoever the highest ranked player on this board is, the team should draft, in my opinion. They are as follows:

1. Leonard Williams

2. Jameis Winston

3. Amari Cooper

4. Dante Fowler, Jr.

5. Vic Beasley

6. Todd Gurley

This, of course, doesn't mean they would be the only players I would be happy with, just the six best players in the draft, again, in my opinion. Kevin White and Andrus Peat are two other players I would be happy with as well.
