I think it has been obvious that Rex has a huge influence on the draft. That is why I have said that Rex could succeed as a head coach if the Jets brought in an old tough curmodgeon of a gm that told him to get his ass out of all personnel and draft meetings.
Ask him what type of offense or defense he wants to run and then tell him to gtfo and stay away from player acquisition. Rex has shown that he thinks he can make due with lousy players. A huge fault that coaches have.
