The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.
Next up are the New York Jets, who finished 8-8 last year. Who will they take to help them accomplish a winning record in 2014?
Mickey: Jets take Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
Physical corner and a solid player against pass and in run support. Fuller is speedy with 40 times of 4.40 and 4.42 seconds at combine. He has excellent leaping ability and is great at finding the ball in the air to make a play. The Jets pride themselves on being a shut down defense and need a corner that could fill that role. Fuller is good in man to man, plays fast and is a hard hitter. Seems like the type of corner the Jets would covet.
Anthony: Jets take Calvin Pryor, Safety, Louisville
The Jets need help in a couple of different areas--the secondary being most notable. They loaded up in free agency at corner with Dmitri Patterson and at wide receiver with Jacoby Ford and Eric Decker, so it's either corner or safety. Pryor is rangy and has big - play potential. Rex Ryan has been trying to find his next big - play safety and with the Landry brothers not playing up to expectations, Pryor is their guy.
Jason: Vikings (with pick traded from Jets) take Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Mike Zimmer's first pick as a NFL head coach is Derek Carr, who many believe will go in the Top 10 this year, but Zim is happy to see him slide this far.
Minnesota only has Christian Ponder and Matt Cassell right now at QB, an unfavorable situation to say the least. Zim knows how a great defense can be negated by average QB play...
Anyhow, Carr threw for 12,842 yards and 113 touchdowns at Fresno, including more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns with just eight interceptions as a senior. He's been a very productive player his entire career, and though he may be a little overrated heading into the draft, he certainly is an upgrade over Cassell and Ponder.
