Therefore, I believe he knows they will target a running back who can run and catch early in this draft. They may trade back to maximize the value of selecting that position, but that is what I believe Tanny knows and hinted at, but steered clear of actually divulging.
Good post,that was my first thought straight away.Tannenbaum is no fool and presumably wants to get another go at GM in the league as well as likely still being fond of the Jets(or at the very least his ex-colleagues)
If we're thinking wideout my personal preference would be Quinton Patton or Tavon Austin if they make it into the 2nd.I'm not of the view we are set at WR,far from it so I do hope we draft one at some stage before the last couple of rounds.
WR seems deep enough again this year that you can pick up a really good contributor down into the 4th and 5th rounds
