Round 6 & 7: Same system as undrafted. Points only awarded if player was productive, no scale.
Round 1 - Dee Milliner CB, Alabama
Analysis - Milliner struggled badly throughout a large portion of the season and missed some time due to injury. He ended the season on fire with 3 interceptions in the last two games. He’s a player who should be much more effective in year two.
Score – 3.5/5
Round 1 – Sheldon Richardson DT, Mizzou
Analysis - Richardson was a beast all season long and is a serious candidate for defensive rookie of the year. He had 78 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and even had a couple of rushing touchdowns in short yardage situations. A flat out stud.
Score – 6/5
Round 2 – Geno Smith QB, West Virginia
Analysis - Smith was extremely erratic his rookie season, looking good one game and then downright terrible the next. He threw 12 touchdowns to 21 interceptions but did add 6 rushing scores. Smith threw for over 3,000 yards and should get another shot at being the starter in 2014.
Score – 3/4
Round 3 – Brian Winters G, Kent St.
Analysis - Winters appeared in every game and started twelve of them. He looks to be a long term starter in the interior of the Jets offensive line.
Score – 3.5/3
Round 5 - Oday Aboushi OT, Virginia
Analysis - Aboushi didn’t appear in any games in year one. He’ll try to do better in year two.
Score – 0/1
Round 6 – William Campbell G , Michigan
Anaylsis - Campbell did nothing his rookie season for the Jets.
Score – 0/0
Round 7 - Tommy Bohanon FB, Wake Forest
Analysis - Bohandon played in every game and was the starting fullback for 8 of them. He ran the ball 17 times for 62 yards, and caught 11 passes for 69. Landing a starter with a 7th round pick is always worth at least one point.
Score – 1/0
NEW YORK JETS 2013 NFL DRAFT GRADE
FINAL SCORE & Grade 17/18 | 94% | A
The Jets had themselves a fantastic little draft in 2013. The star of it is defensive end Sheldon Richardson. Richardson blew up for 78 tackles and 3. 5 sacks and is going to be a star in the league for a very long time. Some other great values were 3rd round offensive guard Brian Winters, and 7th round selection FB Tommy Bohanon, who are both starters. They got mixed production out of both Dee Milliner and QB Geno Smith. Both of these guys went through their ups and downs in year one but that is what a lot of roookies do. The team should still be high on them though and it’s safe to assume both will return as starters in their second year. Overall a very good class that can be even better if both Smith and Milliner pan out.
