cross him off the wish list. :(
Perhaps Mayock is right and Berry really does have some competition for the #1 drafted safety?
With such a stacked draft, is there a possibility that one of the top 2 safeties drops to 29?
The only knock on Thomas is that he is not an in the box safety. Good in coverage, but a little on the small side.
Berry is the better all around safety as he can cover and play in the box.
Has there ever been a draft where more than 1 safety was taken in the top
3rd of the 1st round?
Why would you want to pay a safety a boat load of money?
Give me a mean *ss pass rusher like Demarcus Ware any day over a damn safety.
Jets are in the catbird seat @ 29!
When you look at any mock draft, there are always at least 5 top notch players for the Jets at 29.
I'm looking for a trade BACK in the 2nd round. How many starting positions are available on the Jets right now?
What rookies could START this season on the Jets?
If the Jets plan on ground & pound again then maybe another STUD running back is in order.
God I can't wait for the draft!
You know how Reggie Nelson and Michael Huff struggled their first few years?
Thomas is going to be the same way...That's why Berry's going ahead of him...way more pro-ready.
I think we still need to keep a harness on Sanchez. Flacco and Ryan both slumped in 09. The jets can get away with a lot less passing than the Ravens and Falcons because of the dominant O-line and run game. This is why I think Gerhart in the 3rd or 4th or Blount in the 5th would be awesome. But there are many other value backs RBs as well. Those two fit the style of the Jets. Draft a mean OLB in Hughes and a DE such as Alalu then pickup a stud RB and solid slot guy. Bring in a FB for Richardson to groom. I'm a happy camper.
Well, there goes any shot of him falling to 29
Good for him... I am sure he will make some team happy.....
God Dammit, Earl was my favorite player in the draft and now there is absolutely no chance he drops to 29.
I thought, maybe, since he's a safety, he'll slide in favor of other positions.
Now? Now Earl Thomas is a lock to be gone by 29.
