After trading two picks and three players to move up and draft their quarterback of the future, Mark Sanchez, the Jets dealt three picks to move up and land Iowa’s Shonn Greene.
While his work ethic has been questioned, Greene should be a perfect fit for the Jets’ run-based offense. A real bruiser at close to 230 pounds, Greene could steal some carries from Thomas Jones in short-yardage and red-zone situations as a rookie.
With Leon Washington expected to see more time out of the backfield, however, it’s hard to project Greene as more than a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.
That is, of course, if Jones doesn’t hold out over contractual issues.
