Jets fans are due for some good luck
Maybe, just maybe, this 2013 draft could be the draft that helps fix the infrastructure that has deteriorated over the last 2 years.
While players like Moore, Pouha, Scott, Thomas, have finally been put to pasture, we have young guys looking to succeed them.
During and after this draft, I did my best to read & listen to as many supposed experts as possible.
The facts are that we came away with the consensus best QB in the draft, forget that he dropped to the 2nd round.
We got the consensus number 1 cornerback to replace Revis, while obviously the best CB in football also was a guy only concerned about being paid like a top QB.
We got Richardson, who many including the well respected Gil Brandt that thought he was the best Dlineman available in this draft.
On top of that we ended up with Winters, the 3rd best rated guard in the entire country, who didn't have the benefit of playing on a team loaded with top players, and made a name for himself at Kent state.
Will we get lucky? I hope so, we all deserve it after having to endure 2012. Though our fan base is filled with negative energy, I still think our fan base is one of the best around, we are all just waiting for some consistency.
We have had great years, but most of those were after free agent binges, loading up with other teams draft picks.
My hope is that with Idzik, we have the chance to build through the draft, i think hes off to a great start. 2013 is just a preview, none of us expect a playoff spot.
With a little luck, we could look like team on the upswing with a future that doesn't fizzle out & end in a rebuild every 4th year.
