Compensatory draft picks will be awarded today. Jets expected to receive 4. #nyj
This draft has been described by some as the deepest in 30 years.
Idzik with 12 picks can really build the talent base of this team for long term success...if he has a quality draft.
And IMO...he's not going to pisz away a single pick by trading up. More likely he'll trade down if given the opportunity.
BPA...all the way. Hit it out of the park Idzik baby!
Would be nice if he gave some insight into the rounds. 4 comp picks had been talked about forever.

I'm sure Idzik would love to pick up another 2nd or 3rd rounder by moving down anywhere in the 23-30 range. This draft is that deep that Jets can afford to do this and still get a quality impact player in the 1st round. And do the same with that additional 2nd-3rd pick acquired by a trade down.
Again, it makes little sense to draft 12 or more players for 6 or 7 spots. Taking players in a draft isn't like opening a present where you know what you got. Most of the time it's not obvious, even in practice.
there's no point in throwing away draft picks just because you don't have room for them all. especially given how much of a crapshoot the draft is. i remember the awful, awful picks of terrence ganaway and robert griffin (OL). with a better GM in place, maybe those picks aren't just awful players released before the regular season. but with an abundance of rookies you place the ready ones on the active roster, and hope to stash the not-so-ready ones on the practice squad
2005 draft Kerry Rhodes and Andre Maddox for example. NFL camps are great for separating guys that surprise you with promise from guys who can't measure up. 12 picks is a lot but the Jets have holes and have suspect depth in a lot of areas.
Kerry and Maddox were taken because they are very different players with completely different skill sets. They both played safety, but the different safety positions.
Again, some of you guys are suggesting that the draft is basically this crap shoot, and we know what we get from day 1 in training camp. THat's just not how it works and that's not how NFL teams approach it. That's how it works in video games but there are plenty of guys who appear ordinary or even play like garbage, but then are MUCH better when they learn the system and can play a hundred miles an hour. THat only comes over months of development so it's impossible to know if some extra 6th round pick is instantly better than a guy like Campbell, who's had an entire year of coaching and will have a full training camp.
Two of those and our 1st to move up and take Sammy Watkins.
