usually that's true, but if there's no CBA the only people he can sign before the draft are street free agents.
also to those who said "reach" on Brooks reed, i think the combine plays a huge role in his stock. If he runs a 4.5 and tears up drills he not only worth the 30 pick but might not even be on the board at 30. If he runs a 4.8 or higher then yes he's more of a 3rd round type of player.
one other comment the Jets are one of the worst teams financially this year in terms of cap space and roster spots to fill. They have one of the league's highest payrolls and 19 roster spots open. all this talk about Lawson or Wimbley is dream talk. obviously there will be retirement and cuts but even with that they might only be able to keep 2 out of the "big 4" free agents. So I think they will need to fix their problems through the draft, and OLB is a problem.
