In the draft, this is Jets #1 need, so this guy makes sense Dan Leberfeld

A couple of different mock drafts have the Jets picking this guy, and it would certainly fill their #1 need.

The player I’m talking about is LSU edge-rusher K’Lavon Chaisson.

As far as I’m concerned, this is the Jets #1 need, and has been for some time.

Hall-of-Fame coaches Bill Walsh and Jimmy Johnson both believed that you build championship teams with a great defensive line and a franchise QB. You can fill in everything else.

The Jets are in dire need of a sack daddy coming off the edge, a cat loaded with quick twitch, flexibility to bend under tackles and a great closing burst to the QB.

Chaisson could fill the bill.

While it’s never a good idea to reach for need, picking Chaisson with the 11th pick of the first round, could be an example of marrying need with value.
