2012 NFL Mock Draft: Jets Projected To Select Courtney Upshaw In Latest National Football Post Mock Draft

In the most recent National Football Post 2012 NFL Mock Draft, the New York Jets have been projected to selct Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw (via NFP).

Upshaw has been a frequent Jets projected pick at No. 16 in many past version of mock drafts this offseason.

Here's what NFP's Wes Bunting had to say about the Upshaw projection and why the Jets might want him:

Upshaw is a thick, powerful kid who can line up all over the Jets 34 front and get after the passer. He's got the power to win consistently on contact vs. both the run and pass game and would be the kind of "NFL ready" prospect the Jets would love to get in the middle of round one.
