With their first pick of day two, the Jets went with quarterback Geno Smith. Smith was expected to be a first round pick and was the best quarterback on many peoples boards. This pick was great value for John Idzik and the Jets. I really like Smith's talent and think it could be the end of the Sanchez era. He led the FBS in passing touchdowns and is very mobile and athletic. I think Garrard and Smith will be the Jets who compete for the starting job in the preseason.
With their third round pick, the Jets filled a major need with guard Brian Winters. Before the draft, the Jets had Willie Colon and Vlad Ducasse in the discussion for the starting guard spots, but Winters could win one. Winters was very durable at Kent State and was ranked as the number five guard by Cbs.com. I like the pick by Idzik.
