In a look at this week's updated 2011 NFL Mock Drafts, defensive line is still popular for the New York Jets, especially Baylor nose tackle Phil Taylor. SB Nation now has the Jets taking tight end Kyle Rudolph from Notre Dame to help their passing game.
Here is what SB Nation said in selecting Rudolph for theJets:
"New England's offensive success will make the two-TE offense trendy. Rudolph and Dustin Keller would do wonders for Mark Sanchez's development."
Personally, I don't buy it. Even if the Jets lose Braylon Edwards or Santonio Holmes to free agency, I'd be shocked if they didn't take a defensive lineman or outside linebacker with their first round pick. Most mock drafts currently seem to agree with me...
