2014 NFL Draft: New York Jets Should Not Acquire First Overall Pick
According to multiple media sources, the Houston Texans are interested in trading their first overall selection in 2014’s NFL Draft. Of course, rumors will fly until anything actually happens. Listening to analysis, one constantly hears about a much hyped quarterback class. Houston may look into one of these players, though Case Keenum performed admirably in 2013. For the sake of discussion however, let’s take a look at the New York Jets, and whether they would benefit from jumping up the board. Let me be clear, there are no reports on this happening as of now.
Gang Green currently holds the 18th overall pick. Looking at their needs, it is obvious that wide receiver should be a priority. Both safety positions also need an upgrade, but I am not sure if it should come that early. Jadeveon Clowney is a tremendous prospect at defensive end. Despite a down season, he should go very early. Houston could consider him, but the Jets already have a potent defensive line.
Gaining control of this selection could be tempting, despite my above points. Clowney would be a best-player-available scenario, not just filling a need. Some believe that Jets quarterback Geno Smith struggled so badly at points during his rookie year that they should already move on. Teddy Bridgewater fits the profile of potential super star quarterback. He brings solid build, arm strength, and good decision making. Mobility is good enough to make plays with his feet as well. Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley are also highly touted prospects. Any of these players are not a sure thing, though, and Smith demonstrated in flashes that he could play effectively in the NFL. Landing one of these marquee individuals could be tempting, but Jets GM John Idzik and company should not give away something like three-first round picks it would likely take. Building a program without mortgaging their future seems to be working.
