The Jets First-Round Selection
Now that the regular season has ended and the Jets finished outside of the playoffs, it gives fans the (hopefully) unique experience of looking forward to next year and following junior-aged prospects and preparing mock drafts. Being a long time Oilers fan, I have several years worth of experience in getting mentally prepared for the draft.
With that in mind, I have decided to take a look at six possible prospects who the Jets could call to the podium at the end of June in Pittsburgh. Previous 9th overall picks are sort of a mixed-bag of talent, potential and busts. Names such as Dougie Hamilton, Mikael Granlund, Jared Cowan, Josh Bailey, Logan Couture and James Sheppard should give Jets’ fans a healthy dose of optimism and just a smidge of fear, but odds are that the Jets will at very least get a contributing roster player.
Culling the names from Craig Button’s, Bob McKenzie’s list and also Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospectus, we come up with the following names that may or may not set the Jets’ cheering section (me) to cheering.
