NFL Mock Draft 2013: Giants, Jets target defense

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

In SB Nation's latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft, the New York Jets and New York Giants both target defensive help.

With neither the New York Jets nor the New York Giants in the NFL playoffs this season, football fans in New York City have turned their attention to the 2013 NFL Draft. In SB Nation's latest mock draft, both the Jets and the Giants target defensive players.

With the No. 9 overall pick, Matthew Fairburn expects the Jets to select Dion Jordan from Oregon, and believes Jets head coach Rex Ryan could "do wonders" with Jordan. With the Jets expected to cut both Bart Scott and Calvin Pace, Jordan would have no issue earning a starting gig on New York's front seven.

Fairburn projects the Giants to select LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery with the No. 19 overall pick. New York's pass rush was instrumental in both of its recent Super Bowl winning teams, but took a step back in 2012. Fairburn believes it's a "good bet" that the Giants will seek out a defensive end in the first round of this year's draft, and that Montgomery provides "good upside" for Big Blue.

The 2013 NFL Draft will be held April 25 to 27.
