NFL DRAFT 2014: With plenty of needs, Jets have several options at WR, CB and TE at No. 18

The New York Jets head into the NFL draft with several needs and plenty of picks.

General manager John Idzik also has loads of options with the No. 18 selection.

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.

Idzik says the Jets are taking an "open-minded" approach, and acknowledges that having 12 picks gives them flexibility and maneuverability within the draft. 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, and the team's most since having 10 in 2006.
