    Great comment :)


    Tate would be great though. We need to get Sanchez as many weapons as possible and Tate would be great in that regard.

    Francesa is retarded typically but one comparison that he made was Tate in comparison to Steve Smith. They are EXTREMELY similar. I watched Tate in every game he played at Notre Dame and liked him, but couldn't think of anyone that he resembeled. Tate is great on the outside, same body type, same impressive speed, and VERY strong. He's similar to Harvin in that his strength is impressive. He's not the same as Harvin in regards to his movements in the short area, but he's great with stretching things out and would be perfect. He's also tough, smart and a good kid. Most players who turn into greats are somewhat smart.

    We gave up a 2nd, Elam, Brad Smith, and Kenyon Coleman to move up to get Sanchez from 17 to 5. That was basically nothing except the 2nd.

    the jets will not draft a wide reciever in round one.with shaun ellis ready to retire.they must draft a defensive end.or a defensive tackle to fill the void.

    I understand what you are saying but IMO adding another weapon for Sanchez would be huge for his development. Especially another young guy who he can grow with for his entire career here.

    As far as DE goes, I really like Vince Oghobaase but would rather try to grab him in the 2nd, most likely involving some sort of trade to move up.

    Regardless of who we take beyond round 2, as long as we walk away with Tate and Oghobaase we have had a very successful draft IMO.

    Now let's go beat Indy and worry about this next month...

    there was a recent article talking about how the jets traded up to get greene at the top of the third round even though they had two good back already on the roster. the reason they traded up is because greene was ranked in their top 20 guys for the whole draft.

    rex mentioned something about how you can never go wrong if you take the best player available which is something ozzie newsome and ravens have done for years. this team is pretty solid as is so i really believe they indeed will go best player available whether it is an offensive player or a defensive player. who ever is rated highest on their board.

    Haven't seen much of him throughout his career, but from his highlights it seems he doesn't run very crisp routes.

    if there is no pass rushing specialist on the boar then id love to have Tate on this team, he is an explosive play maker. He would give this offense another dimension similiair to Percy Harvin with the Vikings.

    CBNY what do you think of Tate?
