With the 6th Pick In The 2008 MHR Community Mock Draft

New, comments

The New York Jets, represented by MattR select....


LEODIS MCKELVIN, CB - TROY ST.

G.M. - MattR -- This is probably the Jets nightmare scenario (although Vernon Gholston becoming the Jets' Mike Mamula was probably their fans biggest nightmare).
While part of me regrets passing on the chance to move up and grab McFadden, staying put was still the right move.  The Jets traded away their third and fifth round picks for DT Kris Jenkins and the team is just not good enough to come out of the draft with only two players from the first five rounds.

The best player available is probably Sedrick Ellis, but he can't play DE in a 3-4 so I think the Jets will pass.  Matt Ryan is another option here, but Kellen Clemens was a second round pick in 2006 so I think the team will give Clemens a bit more time.

It is very likely the Jets would look to move down a few spots (Denver might be a possibility with Ellis available).  But in the interest of keeping things moving, the Jets will make their pick and take CB Leodis McKelvin of Troy St.  He's the top CB on most draft boards and will pair nicely with last years first round pick Darrelle Revis.  It has the added bonus of taking a player the Patriots could be targeting with the next pick.

The Draft So Far --

#1 - Miami Dolphins - DE Chris Long, Virginia
#2 - St. Louis Rams - OT Jake Long, Michigan
#3 - Atlanta Falcons - DT Glen Dorsey, LSU
#4 - Oakland Raiders - RB Darren McFadden, Arkansas
#5 - Philadelphia Eagles(via Trade w/ K.C. Chiefs) - DE Vernon Gholston, Ohio St.

The New England Patriots, represented by TommyTSlice are on the clock, followed by Baltimore and Rexx.
