The New York Jets are up with the 18th overall selection in the 2014 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft. With that pick our amateur GM, 'Jonathan' has selected LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

'Jonathan' explains:

"Well, we all know what the Jets need. Everyone knows what the Jets need. Do the Jets know what the Jets need, though? I guess it's clear that they are going to take a fullback, right? Well, it appears that they finally have a front office that knows what it's doing. I assume that the front office will have as tough a time as I did choosing between players for this pick.

"I was stuck between Marqise Lee (of USC) and Odell Beckham Jr. It's hard to not love the polish of Lee and I very nearly submitted this pick as Lee instead of Beckham. But I am just too much in love with Beckham's game to pass on him, here. He has amazing speed and plays a hard-nosed game. He doesn't have the polish that Lee does, but I think he has the potential to be better as a pro. If the Jets keep Geno Smith around (which I expect they will), he can play the same role that Tavon Austin played for Geno in college.

"Beckham has the ability to be a day one impact player on special teams, as well. He will slot in nicely with Decker and Kerley and give the Jets their first passable (no pun intended) group of wide receivers in a while."

Valentine's View

Hard to go wrong picking a receiver here for the Jets. I think most analysts have Lee ranked SLIGHTLY ahead of Beckham Jr., but I'm not sure there is really enough difference to say picking one over the other is right or wrong. It's a matter of preference, and fit. Anyway, the Jets need wide receiver help, and in our draft 'Jonathan' comes through and gives it to them
