Just because their analysis disagrees with the common Jets fan who still blames the OL for last year's lack of success on the offense.
And it makes no sense to take offensive line with the first pick outside of several other positions being gone.
I like Fisher more than anyone, but he's absolutely useless on our team. Brick is as good as it gets at LT, and Fisher's value is at that position. Warmack is good, but there's no point. In a salary cap world, there are only a few positions you can pay top money to and we already waste one of those positions at Center with Mangold. You have to save the big bucks for the most important positions.
I don't read every PFF but I'm curious how they go about grading the Oline. Do they grade each individual individually on each play? The defense runs a stunt, LB comes in untouched.....who gets the fault? Likewise, a LT downblocks, RB goes out in a pattern and the safety comes in and creams the QB. According to PFF, who's at fault?
I've seen people on here suggest that Sanchez sucks at calling protection schemes and that a lot of the hits he's taken is on account of that. I think that's probably true. But how would the good folk at PFF filter out those situations?
Some of the stats I've seen from there have more value. But applying whatever criteria they use to each individual player, adding them up to create the value of an entire Offensive Line simply doesn't make sense. This ranking is direct proof of that.
If you want to say the Jets were playing like a 10th ranked line when they peaked towards the end of the season, I might concede that. #3 as an overall proposition is laughable.
And we aren't talking about Eric Fisher - whether he fits the Jets Oline is irrelevant to how they performed this past year.
