Priories in order: wr >>> OL >> olb >>>>> safety >>> everything else
Trade cro? No you trade revis. Revis is done as a jet.
This years draft isn't about drafting a QB at least not in the first round as Barkley and Smith aren't worth the 1st round in my opinion. While there are a plethora of defensive players in this years draft that could make a difference on our team the idea of drafting yet another defensive player in the 1st round when the offense is this poor makes no sense.
Now addressing the offense; we have needs at the offensive line, WR, TE and RB spots. You don't draft a RB when you have so many needs in the 1st round unless theres an AP in the draft. WR is a spot I can see the Jets drafting in the first round but I believe there are some 2nd round talent to be had. Over the last couple of years there has only been a handful of WR's that have come out and made an immediate impact year 1. I think the Jets have to find a player that starts day 1 and fills a need, that player for me is Warmack. He's probably a top 5 player overall regardless of position and settles 1 of the two empty spots of Slauson and Moore both of whom have contracts expire at years end.
If Warmack gets to us in the 13-18 range (doubly) I would go hard after WR Marquess Wilson out of Washington State because once Holmes is released or traded in 2014 will need another WR to go with Hill and Kerley. Holmes will be a safe cut in 2014 with a cap savings of $8.2m and a cap hit of $2.5m. Holmes will put up better numbers in 2013 but his attitude and lack of leadership isn't what you expect out of your franchise WR, so I suspect the next GM or HC will get him out as soon as possible. He could be trade bait if he puts up decent numbers. A third year Hill and a second year Wilson will be a really good 1-2 punch along with a 4th year Kerley in the slot.
With so many holes on offense I doubt we go after a TE for Keller. Keller is a free agent this year (2013) I think the Jets let him walk (UFA) we would need to find capable TE's which I think we can easily find. Again I like a draft prospect like Levine Toilolo in the 3rd round but I think we find some veteran TE's to fill this void.
The RB spot may be a surprise in that there will be some capable RB's that we can pick up. RB's are a dime a dozen one hit to the knee and there goes your 1st round pick. Time and time again theres a 5th or 6th round pick that shows pro-bowl potential behind a good offensive line. With Powell and McKnight I think we will pick up one more back in FA and have them all compete for the #1 spot. I think McKnight offers a good balance of running and catching ability. The key will be if he can pass block reliably. Powell does pass block well, but his catching ability isn't at the level of McKnights.
I do not know what we do at the RT position. Get a veteran to compete with Howard seems likely. Howard may improve over time to start next year but we need a veteran if he doesn't. The other OG spot needs an upgrade so I doubt we sign Moore or Slauson again. It amazes me how other teams find decent guards in the heap all the time. I hope the Jets find one, if not late draft or FA.
Thats my thoughts for now
That wouldn't make any sense. Raiders made there choice and Darren McFadden will be their main RB playing in a system that better utilizes his skills.
I agree in this draft. I believe we should trade down and get more playmakers. This is a B Grade or less draft, so a lot of players at the same level for mid first through 3rd rounds, which means we can end up with 6 or 7 pics in the first through third rounds and have some new talent, at OL, WR, RB, and QB, TE and LB... We need a drafting guru, but ... it is possible to have 3 starters come out of this draft and a few guys to get ready to compete.
My .02 cents.
I'd be cool with trading down. I'd also be down with trading for picks in next year's draft, under the theory that we may want to draft or trade for a QB next year, when better QBs should be available by draft or trade than this year. Get extra picks in the 2014 draft so we have something to trade.
Glennon is neither smart nor accurate.
Bust written all over him. I want no part of him, and pity the team who does.
