[QUOTE=Jet Nut;4504017]We passed on Ingram because of Ricky Sapp?:eek:
You believe this? If the Jets liked Ingram over Coples, he would be a Jet.[/QUOTE]
Obviously its not that simple. But look at the situation of the team....
We have 3 of our "4" staring LBs that will not be on the team next year in Bart, Pace and BT. We were sitting staring at 2 players:
1. A exceptionally talented DE who had some risks attached to him, at a position we had drafted in the first round last year
2. A exceptionally talented OLB who had some risks attached to him, at a position that we haven't addressed in the draft in years.
However, we have 2 players in Maybin and Sapp who had been cast aside by other teams, that are VERY young, and who have an extremely high ceiling.
And you are certain ("eek") that we didn't evaluate our roster before making that pick?
