Darrelle Revis Trade: New York Jets Draft Picks

The Darrelle Revis trade is done. As you may have seen on Twitter @walterfootball, I graded the Revis trade here, and I did not give the Jets a good mark because they gave up their franchise player for very little compensation.

However, the Jets now have two picks in the top 13, so they have tons of options. They can either move down or stay put and grab two of the class's top prospects. Let's look at their possibilities at Nos. 9 and 13.

Geno Smith or Ryan Nassib, QBs
The Jets weren't expected to draft a quarterback at No. 9 overall, but two first-rounders make a signal-caller selection more plausible. Geno Smith could be available at both spots if the Jaguars don't take him at No. 2. The same goes for Ryan Nassib if the Bills pass on him. New York is still likely to take a quarterback later on though.

Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
The Jets need an electric talent on offense, as they don't have a player who is a threat to go to the end zone on any given play. The Jets' new coaching staff likes to use slot receivers, so Austin would essentially be a starter. He's definitely in play at No. 9, as I've mocked him there in the past. New York would probably have to take him at that ninth spot because the Chargers and Dolphins could grab the West Virginia wideout.



Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
Tyler Eifert is a possibility at No. 13, but the Jets are rumored to like Zach Ertz more. They can get Ertz in the second round, so I don't think Eifert will be chosen at either spot.

Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack, G
A guard in the top 10 is kind of ridiculous, but at No. 13? That's not so bad, though I'd still look elsewhere since finding a capable guard is highly likely in any round. There's a good chance that either Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack will make it to the Jets' second pick, though one could definitely be gone.





Barkevious Mingo or Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB
As noted in the 2013 NFL Draft Rumors page, the Jets are smitten with Barkevious Mingo. They'd probably be able to get either him or Jarvis Jones at No. 13. The Chargers are the only team in the 8-12 range that would draft a 3-4 outside linebacker. However, if New York really is set on Mingo, it probably should just grab him at No. 9. San Diego is a wild card if all three tackles are off the board.

Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
Dee Milliner is not going to be picked as high as the media believes. He's not an elite cornerback prospect. That's why I have him going 10th to the Titans in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft. However, Milliner is still a very good corner who would definitely be worth the ninth-overall pick. The Jets would absolutely have to take him there if they really want him because the Titans and Dolphins will be all over the Alabama product.



Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
I'm giving Xavier Rhodes his own capsule because he's in a different draft range than Dee Milliner. Rhodes will almost certainly be on the board when the Jets are on the clock with their 13th-overall selection. They could pair him with another Florida State alumnus, though Kyle Wilson was decent across from Antonio Cromartie following Revis' injury last year.

Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
I'd argue that safety is a much bigger need than cornerback, so while everyone is focusing on Dee Milliner and Xavier Rhodes, I'd have to believe that the Jets would choose Kenny Vaccaro over the latter corner if both are on the board at No. 13. The 13th spot is definitely the right place to get Vaccaro, given that the Titans, Chargers and Dolphins aren't likely to draft him.



So, what do you think? Whom will the Jets choose at Nos. 9 and 13? Vote in the poll below, post a comment or follow @walterfootball for updates.
