i completely disagree. one huge problem with the jets drafts in recent years is that everyone needs too much development. look around the nfl and you see rookie starters and some stars at all positions. the jets need immediate impact players. that's exactly what they're missing. plus, idzik's reputation will be instantly shaped by how his first draft class does. everyone knows he's saddled with a crappy salary cap situation and crappy qbs. but if he can draft a few good players he'll be hailed as the savior of the team. the last thing this team needs is to draft a few guys high up who can't contribute right away.
