The New York Jets are on the clock:

Team Needs: DL, CB, OL: They have plugged most of their obvious holes via free agency, but could use an upgrade at almost every position, which explains how a team that finished 25th in total offense and 20th in total defense could still make the playoffs with a 10-6 record.  What they need to do is to start defining strengths.

The Debate: Go with a need in corner, but a position that is deep in talent with potential starters available in the second round?  How about improving the right side of that offensive line?  Then there is the front seven, which remains in the rebuilding stage as they shift from the 4-3 alignment to the 3-4 on defense.

The Choice: Greg Olsen.  The Jets are absolutely ecstatic that the Miami tight end has slipped down to them.  Since Chad Pennington has been the signal caller, the Gang Green has lacked a pass catching tight end.  Olsen could make fans forget about Kyle Brady, Johnny Mitchell and Anthony Becht (all first round picks), as well as the Doug Jolley debacle.

What Would DB Do: Olsen: This former Cane solidified himself as the top tight end at the Combine, he brings everything you would want from the position and should follow in the footsteps of Jeremy Shockey and Kellen Winslow. He does not quite have the same upside, but isn’t being the same attitude either.
The Philadelphia Eagles are now on the clock…
