Updated: Pick was sent in, but my email had a failure that kept it from me. It comes from DrullinOverDaCards
With the 16th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the New York Jets select Jonathon Martin, OT, Stanford
Some may consider this a reach, but the Jets are a right tackle short of one of the best offensive lines in the league. Martin, who may not have the strength to play LT fills the right tackle spot perfectly for the Jets. Martin will replace the fourth worst ranked right tackle in the league who allowed 11 sacks last season. This pick gives Sanchez some more protection and also improves the blocking in the run game.
I really don't understand the Tebow pickup by the Jets, but I have to assume the Jets made the move to run some kind of Wildcat offense, Martin's run blocking skills will make a huge addition.
I have no problem with this pick. I believe Martin will be just fine as a pro. I would probably take him for the Cardinals at their selection.
