Spread offenses proliferating around the league means you always need good defensive backs. I wouldnt be surprised if they go safety in round 2 or 3.
Glad you picked up on that because I was about to go off on pmarsico. The problem here is that we have Jets fans that never watch college football acting like they know what they are talking about when it comes to the draft because they heard an interview with mel Kiper the day before the dragt. Not knowing Mizzou moved to the SEC is comical.
Richardson played against Bama and other elite SEC schools this year and did well for a DT. DT's generally aren't going to put up big sack numbers so its tough to tell from the numbers.
How about the Niners?
Or the Giants? Pats?
They all had better than average QB's. What is this fixation on CB's this team has?
No other team in the league had better corners than the Jets the past two years and they didn't make the playoffs.
He should not be ranked in the top 4 on any board
Maybe, just maybe Idzic, or Izdic as most will be starting to refer to him as, is concentrating on one thing at a time. we really can't do much with the O right now because we really do not have much talent under center. Maybe the focus this year is the D and next year when Sanchez is gone we can wipe the slate clean with a big new QB and build around him. If this is the plan I am fine with it. No doubt he will go O in this draft but maybe D is 1st on the docket. I do agree though, we did not need to address Revises replacement just yet, we could have done that round 2 or 3. I am playing wait and see game.
I didnt like it but now that its all set and done ill roll with it (like theres any other option) Richardson is quick off the snap. Has good speed. If we switch to the 4-3 or the 5-2 then i can see where he fits. Ryan made it clear he didnt like Jones. I felt from the beginning we should go D in round 1 bc how deep this draft is wth WR's and TE's. My only wish is that they traded down and got a second second rounder so we can get two targets like Etrz or Kelce at TE and Hunter or Allen in round 2
My initial reaction was depression because these picks do not fill immediate holes and will not help us this season. It seems Idzik went BAP looking towards the future with 2 good players that give them scheme versatility in case they fire Rex and move to a Tampa 2 defense like Seattle. I doubt Richardson was a Rex pick because he doesn't fit the scheme.
I also think we also got screwed: I think we targeted Mingo & Austin at 9 and Hayden at 13. Both went 1 pick before us. I was looking for Fluker at 9 and Jones at 13. It shows the priority we place on CB and DL as compared to teams like Pitt, Balt, and NYG who prioritize pass rushers over DBs.
WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR.
It should have been Jarvis Jones. Jet fans will rue the day they took S-Rich over Jarvis Jones. We will watch him tear up opposing offenses in the playoffs with Pittsburgh for years and years. He was projected to be a top 3 pick at one point.

Richardson is a better player than Jones
