    I think my favorites would be Williams in the 2nd and Schuening in the 3rd.

    It's a solid list. I'm most interested in the tackles, Williams, Cherilius, Nicks, and Benedict to be specific. Nothing against Baker, just don't think he's the right fit for the right side.

    Williams if we go for a tackle in the 2nd

    Benedict if we go for a tackle in the 3rd

    Barton if we go for a tackle in the 4th/5th (hope he falls that far because he could be a nice mid round pick)

    For Guards, I'd prefer to address that position through FA but it wouldn't hurt to add depth in the later rounds of the draft. I like what I've read about Andrew Crummey from Maryland who is projected 6-7th round right now.

    Looking at all of these names, it's a good year to be pursuing OL. In the first 3 or 4 rounds we should be able to pick up 2 solid players that could start next season.

    Even if we pick up 1 or 2 FA linemen, I'd still like to take 1 or 2 late round OT's. This team really needs some depth on the OL. And this is the draft to get it.

    If somehow the Longs and Gholston are gone when we pick I wouldn't mind taking Clady if we can't trade down. He's gonna be a very good OT in this league.

    Last year 12 OT & OG went in the first 3 rounds. The lists above + Jake Long = 13. So if we're looking for starters (which we are) I'd say we have to draft these guys early. I'd guess the only ones left when we pick in the early 4th might be Felton and Barton. So I'd really like for the Jets to go 2nd and 3rd round picks on OL.

    But that strategy conflicts with getting guys like Red Bryant, Quentin Groves, Chris Ellis or Shawn Crable in the 2nd. Any of those guys could really help our Defense.

    So what direction will the Jets go - OL or Defensive front 7 with that 2nd round pick? It will be interesting to see.

    I think if the Jets can get at least one OL in FA, then we'd have more flexibility in the draft.

    i've heard his work ethic, attitude and heart are all suspect... and that's from sources who are supposed to be hyping him.

    Williams probably a first rounder, benedict probably a 2nd. Barton and Crummey stink.

    Bitonti - what's your take on Heath Benedict ? After Jacob Bender not playing last year, I'm gun-shy on taking another small college OL.


    And what about Sam Baker as an LG for the Jets ?

    benedict isn't a true small schooler, he started out at univ of tennessee and transferred. probably the best div II prospect for a decade or more. he's legit.

    Sam Baker is a great player who might be best at left guard but someone might take him higher to play tackle. he's got the feet for that position and does a nice job. he's a quirky guy in terms of attitude, a real california guy and will need to find the right team to fit - if he ends up with a taskmaster like Mangini it might not be best fit between personality and player, JMO.

    Bitonti - thanks for the info

    What are your thoughts on Barry Richardson from Clemson. He's an All America OT but seems to be falling like a stone lately. What's going on with him ?

    hes really inconsistant - i want to like this player but he's slow out of his stance, tentative in run blocking and basically could be 10x better than he is right now but i don't think he has the work ethic to make himself better.
