Not sure if any "playmakers" are high in this draft so that being said the OG vs OLB is the debate IMO. Looking back at Seahawks picks not sure where Idzik would be more likely to go but not afraid to pick O-linemen. That being said I think that wil be the choice barring any set backs. Very skeptical of the late bloomer playmakers that shoot up board. If you weren't that dude in college doubt it changes with the big boys
If we pass on one of the top 4 olb propsects at the very least one of the top 3 for a guard, even a good one I'll be pissed.
You don't pick an OG at #9 overall.. you just don't.
DeCastro was taken at #24.
Pouncey at #15
Iupati at #17
Hutchinson at #17
Faneca at #26
You have to go back to 1997 to find a guard drafted in the top 10 - #10 pick Chris Naeole.. and back to 1986 to find the next - #9 pick John Rienstra
You want to tell me that the Jets should trade down to 15-20 and select Warmack, and add a 2nd or a 3rd rounder, great... but I'm seeing the same posts on here as I did in 2012 when a handful of fans were praying that DeCastro slipped to the Jets (and some even wanted us to trade up to get him!)
DeCastro would almost certainly go higher if he was in the 13' draft. And, if Warmack is rated higher than DeCastro - which he appears to be - going #9 or so isn't that much of a stretch.
Sure I'd love to trade down to pick up some more picks and still get a guy like Warmack. But if he truly represents value and fits a real need, I wouldn't pass him up solely on account of sticking to a stubborn principle of "Guards are not top 10 picks".
Its Ok to have philisophical views about what you should and shouldn't do, but they can't be immutable - they need to be adapted to the specific situation.
I dont want any projects with the 1st 3 picks. If possible trade down in the 1st and take another safe pick. There are plenty of player who will be safe picks to be good players in the NFL. Players like Mingo, Ezekiel Ansah and Dion Jordan scare me. We need to get players that WILL be ok at worst not players that need to add weight or are boom/bust guys. This year any of the QBs fit into that classification. It seems like there are plenty of OT,G, RB,TE,S and OLB that could be had in the 1st 4 rounds that we could fill some holes making us a better team down the line.
I'll take Chance Warmack/Alex Okafor over Ziggy Ansah/Barrett Jones anyday of the week.
Some of you guys are acting like it's impossible for us to find a passrusher outside of the 1st round.
Warmack is one of the Top 3 overall players in this draft and the best OG prospect to come out in over a decade. Guys like Ansah and Mingo aren't even the best passrushers in this draft class.
Mingo or Warmack
Cordarelle Patterson may be JETS Rice in a couple of years.Lets hope this administration understands the importance of a game breaker at both, wide receiver/kick off returns.He may not fall to us but if so, i am in for Patterson.
I'd be pretty shocked if the Jets take him. If we're going offense at 9, I think Warmack may be the only guy that makes any sense.
If Both Warmack and Ansah live up to what us fans think they will be, who would you prefer to give the big money extension too at that time ?
