Analysis: If there was ever a need pick, the Jets selection of kicker Mike Nugent is just that. Playing in many games decided by a field goal or less, the Jets went into the draft looking to acquire a consistent kicker. In Nugent, the Jets have solidified the position for years with this tremendously accurate kicker from Ohio State.
The Jets' selection of cornerback Miller fills a need of quality and depth in the defensive backfield. With the uncertainty over the desire of veteran Donnie Abraham to continue playing, Miller is a talent the Jets couldn't pass on despite off-field issues that sent his stock dropping. Miller's ability in the return game could pay immediate dividends in New York.
The Jets selection of Pouha in the third round of the draft is questionable at best. Pouha is not an active tackle and has not shown the ability to man the nose tackle position effectively.
