Reach comments don't make sense
I am not a draft guru like many of you here, and I really enjoy all of the comments and learn alot about perspective picks. thanks to all the regular posters for that!
There is one thing that does not make any sense to me. It kind of drives me crazy. We are picking at 29, at the very end of the first round. When a player is mentioned that is "rated" as a mid 2nd round pick, people say that we are reaching. That is senseless.
We have the opportunity to pick a player at 29, and then again at 61. If a player is rated mid second round and we want him, guess what? We have to pick him at 29 or risk losing him at 61. There is no guarentee that we could trade down into the mid 2nd, then no guarentee that the player we want would still be there.
In my opinion, the 29th pick FOR THE JETS would not be a REACH if we took any player that we had targeted that was rated 29 thru 60, since the Jets do not have the opportunity to select anyone else until 61.
