Wide receiver? Cornerback? Tight end? Trade up, or down? Well, it’s anyone’s guess — the Jets included — right now. But with the depth of this year’s rookie class and currently holding a whopping 12 selections, New York will likely be able to add a few impact players.

Since taking over as GM last year, Idzik has preached a philosophy of building through the draft. And the 12 picks are just one less than the 13 the Jets had in coach Rex Ryan’s first three years from 2009-11 combined.
