Jets Get Another Pick
The NFL has announced that the Jets will receive a compensatory draft pick at the end of the third round. Compensatory picks are granted to teams who have lost free agents the previous year. The principal free agents lost by the Jets last year were Kareem McKenzie and Lamont Jordan last year. Jason Ferguson and Anthony Becht also left, but had less of an impact in 2005.
The additional third round pick gives the Jets eight draft picks in the first five rounds, with an extra pick late in each of the first, third and fourth rounds.
Thus far this offseason, the Jets have not succeeded in their efforts to replace center Kevin Mawae or offensive tackle Jason Fabini.
The draft will therefore be absolutely pivotal in determining the future course of the team, and whether the Jets can solidify their offensive line. Whether or not they draft D'Brickashaw Ferguson with the number 4 pick, the Jets should draft at least three offensive linemen in the first five rounds. Ohio State center Nick Mangold is a player who the Jets should seriously consider if he remains available at their number 29 pick.
