How many teams?
How many teams would love to be where the Jets are at pick 29?
Jets are in the ultimate catbird seat! We all know that this draft is deeper than *hit!
Both Mike Mayock & Gil Brandt call this, "The deepest draft they can ever remember!"
All this talk of 3 safeties taken in the 1st 20 picks! Why pay a college safety that would have to learn how to play for Rex & actually learn how to play safety in this league, 4 times what you could pay Sharper to play for us for 2 years if we could get him after July 22nd?
Teams that are picking between 4 & 20 are no better off than the Jets picking at 29 in this draft. Only difference is they will pay a lot more money for basically the same prospect.
Jets still having 29 & 61 after trading for Cromarty & Holmes is mind boggling.
How often does a team that went to the AFCCG get 2-26 year old pro bowl caliber players for a 3rd & 5th round pick?
* This is similar to the Pats getting Moss & Welker, except Pats gave up 2,4,5 I believe and both of them were older than Cro & Holmes.
If someone trades up with the Jets for 29 & we recoup a 3rd rounder, you would have to say that the last 4 years have been the best years in the history of this franchize in building this team. If that happens Woody better be giving Tannenbaum a raise because other teams will be calling.
Look at Scott Pioli, guy made a career out of getting lucky with a 6th round pick. Personally, I think the Pats last 4 years aren't even close to how Tannebaum has transformed the NY Jets in that same period.
If Sanchez does turn out to be the NY Jets Franchize, Mike T should be in the NY Jets hall of fame!
