NFL Mock Draft 2013: New York Jets Select...

This selection was made by Josh Hill of FanSided.com

New York Jets Select Tavon Austin, WR/West Virginia

Thanks to the Darrelle Revis Trade which landed the Jets with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-round pick, New York has a chance to really change the face of their franchise. A reported scenario from Jason LaCanfora stated that the Jets would select Geno Smith and Tavon Austin if they got a hold of the Bucs pick.

But instead, New York took a defensive player 9th overall and are taking the explosive Tavon Austin 13th overall. Wit the trade, the Jets are in a position to be able to pass on Geno Smith, as E.J. Manuel is going to be available in the second round and is just like Geno Smith. There isn’t a carbon copy of Tavon Austin in the draft, which means in two days, the Jets may go from the laughing stock of football, to an incredibly dangerous team.

Here is how the draft currently stands:

1. Kansas City Chiefs — Eric Fisher, offensive tackle, Central Michigan
2. Jacksonville Jaguars — Dion Jordan, defensive end, Oregon
3. Oakland Raiders — Sharrif Floyd, defensive tackle, Florida
4. Philadelphia Eagles — Luke Joeckel, offensive tackle, Texas A&M
5. Detroit Lions — Ezekiel Ansah, defensive end, BYU
6. Cleveland Browns — Dee Milliner, cornerback, Alabama
7. Arizona Cardinals — Lane Johnson, offensive tackle, Oklahoma
8. Buffalo Bills —  Chance Warmack, guard, Alabama
9. New York Jets — Jarvis Jones, linebacker, Georgia
10. Tennessee Titans — Jonathan Cooper, guard, North Carolina
11. San Diego Chargers —  Star Lotulelei, defensive tackle, Utah
12. Miami Dolphins —  Xavier Rhodes, cornerback, Florida State
13. New York Jets (via Tampa Bay) — Tavon Austin, wide receiver, West Virginia
