Reader’s Mock Draft: New York Jets are on the Clock
New York Jets draft needs:
Corner Back: The Jet’s finished 22nd in pass defense last season. The pass defense struggled with inconsistent play. With the departure of Cromartie, that leaves only one starter, Milliner.
Safety: Another sore spot on the defense. While the corner spot is more desperate, getting a safety would strengthen the entire defensive backfield.
Offensive Tackle: With the loss of Howard to the Raiders, the offensive line has a hole that needs fixing.
Tight End: Even with re-signing Cumberland, the Jets still need a playmaker TE. Cumberland is adequate, but they need a TE to stretch the field and make the big plays.
Running Back: This part of the roster might not be a priority, but last season saw injuries and inconsistent play by the trio of running backs.
