2012 NFL Draft: Santonio Holmes Says New York Jets Need Offensive Linemen, Wide Recievers
We’re just hours away from the 2012 NFL Draft.
Who will the New York Jets select on Thursday, on day 1 of the draft? There’s certainly plenty of possibilities.
Certainly the University of Alabama has no shortage of first-round prospects. Maybe they’ll trade up to try to get Trent Richardson, although I think that’s a bit of a longshot.
“We’re looking for a few offensive linemen, some guys that are ready to come in and play right away,” said Holmes. “We need a few more receivers to give Mark more weapons to throw the ball to.”
It wouldn’t be too surprising to see the Jets add a few more receivers and linemen with their seven picks on Saturday, so Holmes may get his wish.
“Guys are ready to go, man,” Holmes said. “We’re looking forward to a big season this year and, hopefully, make it to the playoffs, finishing off with the right things, holding that trophy.”
The foundation for those February triumphs begin in April. Soon enough, the Jets will be on the clock. Hopefully, for their sake, they come out of this weekend with a draft class worth talking about.
