2014 NFL mock draft: Donte Moncrief to New York Jets at No. 49

Even after a mock draft pick of Eric Ebron, the New York Jets could still use some skill talent on offense.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Much like our last mock draft pickers, the fine folks covering the Baltimore Ravens at Baltimore Beatdown (who drafted wideout Brandin Cooks and tight end Jace Amaro this year), our friends at Gang Green Nation are focusing entirely on offensive weaponry with their mock draft picks. John Butchko and David Wyatt are here to explain their second-round pick for the New York Jets.

"It’s a testament to how little talent the Jets had on offense that they still could use more weapons even after adding Eric Decker and Chris Johnson in free agency and Eric Ebron in the first round. Drafting the physically gifted Moncrief means the writing is on the wall for Stephen Hill, the disappointing second-round wide receiver the Jets took two years ago."

Dan Kadar, SB Nation's NFL Draft analyst, has some thoughts and opinions to share on the Ravens' mock draft pick of Amaro:

Doubling up on playmakers is a smart move for the Jets early in the draft. The Ebron pick in the first round was a slam dunk. Adding Moncrief in the second is another. While a player like LSU's Jarvis Landry may be a higher-rated wide receiver (forget those combine times), Moncrief has far more potential. He's a big-play wide receiver who can stretch the field. In other words, he'd open up the underneath area for someone like Ebron to shine.

That's a wrap for today; coming your way tomorrow are picks from the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals.
