Poll: Who is the Jets' first-round pick?
By James Walker
The New York Jets are near the top of the draft after an awful, 6-10 season that had a little bit of everything. Therefore, here is our latest poll question: Who will the Jets take with the No. 9 overall pick?
Will it be Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan? He showed well at the combine by running a 4.6. But a lingering shoulder injury is a question mark. Despite that, can Jordan be the outside pass-rusher the Jets need?
What about Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson? New York desperately needs dynamic players on offense. Patterson has the physical tools, but the downside is Patterson has limited Division I experience. Can Patterson successfully make the jump against NFL competition?
Finally, could the Jets draft a quarterback in the first round? West Virginia's Geno Smith is the top-rated quarterback in the draft and New York personally interviewed Matt Barkley of USC at the NFL combine. The Jets need competition for incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez, and they have their eye on both rookie quarterbacks.
