2013 NFL Mock Draft: Lots of options for Jets and Giants

USA TODAY Sports

The two mock drafts at CBS Sports have the Jets and Giants taking different players, but they agree on one thing; the Jets need help with their pass rush.

Both the Jets and Giants ended their seasons outside of the playoffs and now are forced to look forward to the draft. The Jets finished 6-10 and need upgrades at a lot of positions but can only select one player with their No. 9 pick in the first round. The Giants followed up their 9-7 Super Bowl season with a 9-7 2012 that saw them miss the playoffs. Things certainly aren't as dire for the Giants, but they still have holes to fill with the No. 19 pick.

Both Rob Rang and Dane Brugler at CBS Sports have the Jets picking a player to help with their pass rush from the edge. Rang believes the Jets will select LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo and use him as a 3-4 OLB, while Brugler has the Jets taking Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones. Both believe that the Jets need help creating pressure and these are two players who can do just that. Rang believes that Jones will be selected before the No. 9 pick, leaving the Jets to look elsewhere (Mingo) to create that pressure.

When it comes to the Giants, the draft experts have more divergent opinions. Brugler believes the Giants will select BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, a raw talent to add to their stable of pass rushers. Rang thinks they will pick Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert. Martellus Bennett's one-year contract is up, and Eifert could step in and take his place.
