I don't count Smith because I think he'll be gone 100% by the time #9 rolls around. Barkley? I think he's better than most around here give him credit for. I think he could be successful in a WCO but he doesn't strike me as a 'franchise' guy. I also think the Bills could definitely grab him at #8. They are taking a QB.
So with Smith and Barkley gone - is your #3 Bray? No way Jets take him at #9 - no way.
Now one of those top two could fall to us, but it seems less likely than them being off the board after #8.
I agree that the likelihood of turning Mark around is slight, but it seems like Morinwheg (sp) and Lee are a good place to start. The Jets don't have a lot of options, as we know, and I would personally be surprised if Sanchez isn't given a legit shot at the starting job next year.
The parlor game I am interested in is who do we bring in to push him for the starter's job in a legit way - and paying Alex Smith $6 mill a year does not count . . .
But I would agree with you - Smith and Barkley have become the clear 1/2 in my mind.
