Quite a few mock drafts that have been popping up over the last few weeks have the Jets pick penciled in as a wide receiver. Sure the team traded for Braylon Edwards last season but Jerricho Cotchery was injured as well causing some to think they'd want to add another weapon for Mark Sanchez.
According to Jets beat writer Rich Cimini of the NY Daily News, the Jets are "unlikely" to use a first round pick on a receiver.
The Jets have a good chunk of change wrapped up in the future of Edwards and Cotchery. Edwards in particular is a restricted free agent and seeks a long-term deal. Cotchery was injured at times last year but when healthy plays at a high level.
Unless Dez Bryant falls down the draft boards, it doesn't appear as if the Jets are targeting a receiver.
Though it wouldn't be the first time a mock draft was wrong.
