    So who do you think the Jets need (what position would you go for) Or would you just grab the best overall rated player at the point its their turn to pick? I cna’t think of many spots where they need some help. Probably just on Defense . Linebackers. Maybe if a great special team guy is available like a punter or PAT kicker. But I think maybe this year they get the best lineback for theirveryfirst pick and from there on they should grab the best overall talented [player regardless. Maybe use that player for a trading chip for a different defense player etc. The Jets really have very little holes on both sides and are defiinitely contenders. But maybe its all a moot point as the lock out will change their needs in two years if they wind up not playing this year- you never know. But it would be their karma that the year they are highest probable Super bowl champs and there is no season!!!! ARG!!!!!.

      I just thought of something…. maybe the Jets should pick the player that has the biggest fppt so they can use his turf shoes to stick in Rex’s mouth. “I guarantee we will win the superbowl this season”
