So it will more than likely be the Jets picking before us.I think they may go DE,Corner,or WR

Jets are fine at corners. They need a DT, pass rusher, WR, and S. if Star is there at 9, I think the take him. At 13, it could be VACCARO or a pass rusher in Mingo/Jarvis. I hope to god its not Vaccaro bc I want him.

I think in the off chance Star falls to 13, the Jets have already said they want to trade down. A team in the back half of the first would likely trade up to 13 to get him :(

Just went on some Jets forums. Cooper/Warmack is the popular pick, but there are quite a few Austin supporters too. This trade definitely sucks for us, no way around it. The Jets have more needs so they can grab more of our guys.

The Bucs were likely going to go either DL or CB. The Jets will likely go WR, OLB, or CB, perhaps Geno if he's on the board. The biggest impact will probably be Star Lotulelei related; a lot of mocks have had him falling to TB recently, and the Jets have two very good 3-4 DEs and are apparently content to stick with Kenrick Ellis as their NT, meaning he just may fall to us. But that's a big maybe.

I think they take Austin and Mingo.

No way they take Austin.

They have a huge gap at Safety and RB.

Mingo and Vaccaro/Lacy/Franklin if they can't trade down.

The Jets are an unquestionable threat to take Austin. The Jets offense was in woeful need of playmakers last year, and there is none better than Tavon Austin. They drafted Stephen Hill (although we certainly know not everyone in the organization is a fan of him), but he's a primarily vertical threat, as is Santonio Holmes. Kerley showed nice development last year as a slot guy, but I don't think anyone would stand pat on him in place of Tavon Austin.

Simply put, the Jets offense needs explosive power, Tavon Austin brings exactly that. Of course they have glaring needs elsewhere so you certainly can't pencil Austin in, but you in no way should discount him either.

Austin doesn't fit their offense. If theyre drafting one high, it'll be a big receiver like Patterson, Keenan or Hunter.
