One mock draft that might mean a little regarding Jets Dan Leberfeld

IMO, most mock draft are useless. It’s just people guessing as to what might happen. But the one mock draft that might mean a little something in regards to the Jets’ first round pick is from’s Charley Casserly.

After all, he’s Mike Maccagnan’s mentor and helped him get the Jets’ GM job.

Maccagnan worked for Casserly’s personnel departments in both Washington and Houston.

So Casserly not only speaks to Mr. Coffee all the time, but he knows how his protege thinks.

In his latest mock draft, Casserly has the Jets picking Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore with the sixth pick.

“Jets get a No. 1 cornerback to fill a major need,” Casserly wrote under the pick.

If Lattimore’s hamstrings check out with the Jets’ medical staff, this pick would make a lot of sense.

The Jets’ biggest weakness last season was pass defense, which isn’t a good thing in a passing league, and when you’re in Tom Brady’s division.

So Lattimore, who has lock down cornerback potential, is a pick that would make sense.

I’m not saying that Casserly knows for sure what the Jets are going to do, but he certainly has a great feel for Maccagnan’s mindset.
