    After selecting QB Geno Smith in the second round, the New York Jets filled a hole in their offensive line, as they picked OG Brian Winters from Kent State in the third round. The 6-4, 320-pound Winters played both tackle positions in college (34 starts at LT, 16 starts at RT), but he will compete for a starting guard spot with OG Vlad Ducasse. Winters lacks elite athleticism, but is regarded as a physical, punishing blocker that the Jets need after losing both starting guards in the offseason.

He appeared to be a leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy during a red-hot start to 2012, but then ran into significant issues in blowout losses to Texas Tech and Kansas State.

    The New York Jets made a trade with the Seattle Seahawks in Round 2 to select WR Stephen Hill from Georgia Tech. Hill, 6'4", 215 lbs, is projected to be the deep threat that the Jets' offense has lacked since the departure of WR Braylon Edwards.

Hill caught 15 passes for 291 yards, 3 TD in 2010 and then broke through in 2011 with 28 receptions for 820 yards, 5 TD.
