Community Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 16

Yes, I know, this stuff gets a little tiresome. Bear with me now, guys, I want to get to the Bucs' second-round pick before the draft actually hits - because then we'll have a good debate on our hands again. Besides, it's good to take a quick look at other team needs around the NFL - we get a better picture of how everyone else is doing, that way.

The last time we left this mock draft, the hated Philadelphia Eagles were on the clock - and they took linebacker Dont'a Hightower. Outside of Demeco Ryans they don't have much at linebacker, and in their defensive scheme they need quality players at those positions. The Bucs could have been interested in Hightower with their second pick, but that won't happen in this mock draft.

Today we move on to another much-loathed team: the New York Jets. They have a lot of needs: they need to add offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebackers, a safety, probably a receiver, a running back - oh, and a quarterback who can throw an accurate pass. For a team that went to two AFC Championship games in the past three years, they do seem to have a lot of holes.
