The only DLs who start day 1 on this team is Suh or McCoy.
The Jets already have the #1 pass D.
I would NEVER call for drafting a WR at 29. Unnecessary. Round 4 for the slot.
The best DE available at 29 is better than Devito. Pouha and Jenks are NTs. Ellis is how old and with a problem with our little friend Maryjane? Douglas (not signed) is how old?
At OLB. Posters here are lambasting Gholston and Thomas as garbage. If so, why not get a guy who can play. There are even people here on JI that think Pace stinks.
Again, why not draft ALL CBs and Safeties. That way you're always protected against injury and failure.
And what if Sanchez goes down? Should the Jets draft Tebow or Colt McCoy to backup? Gotta be covered, especially foer the most important position.
