I do agree that WR and RB are a pipe dream and they are probably going Defense. (THey will draft another QB before they draft a WR. what's the point of buying more toys for Sanchez?)
Ingram is a nasty SEC player and if that's the pick at 16, I don't really have a problem with it.
in the coming months we will learn alot about these players, Ingram, Upshaw and Perry (vinny curry too). specifically with senior bowl and workouts.
last year Senior Bowl and Combine turned Von Miller from a top 20 guy to a top 2 guy.
also Last year we debated Ayers and Reed like animals at each others throats and the team picked neither.
my early sense is that the Jets obviously don't want another Gholston. that DE to OLB transition is a hard one, even for players that make it like Bryan Thomas and Calvin Pace, it can take years.
still with Thomas done, Pace just as old as Thomas and even with maybin they have huge need at the position.
Courtney Upshaw might be the least risky of the group, simply because of all his LB experience. also Alabama is a factory while SC is a nice program. Melvin Ingram stands up from time to time, Upshaw does it all game long. A player like Vinny Curry never does it and might not be on their board because of that fact. most players don't project well to 3-4 OLB, that's what makes Upshaw so rare.
