I can live with just about anything. I trust that they won't waste the pick on a player who isn't on the top of their board.
for one, Pouncey is widely regarded as the draft's best interior lineman -- along with Iupati -- but with the added luxury that he can play 3, maybe 4 positions on the OL.
he not only would greatly improve our OL depth, but would be a great developmental prospect to have in place when Faneca's/Woody's skills start to deteriorate. and who knows? if extension negotiations with Mangold hit a snag, having Pouncey on the roster would give the Jets that extra bit of leverage. not exactly a terrible thing, either.
That's the exact opposite...My whole thing with Cody is he is a young man. Unless he gets on the biggest loser, as he ages, he is going to get much bigger. He has already shown a knack for disobeying his coaches when it comes to working out and getting fit.
1 - He's a young man, so he actually also get into shape too. Obviously, genetically he was meant to be a big dude. That doesn't mean he can't learn to control his weight...which leads me to...
2 - Huh? He dropped something like 60 pounds for Saban at 'Bama, where he went in at over 400 pounds. Then he came into the Senior Bowl overweight...by combine he had last 32 pounds. Disobeying coaches...where?
3 - I literally hear nothing about Cody being disrespectful to anybody about anything. Character is actually a plus on the guy, even if he isn't a svelte 22 year old NT prospect.
'83, we also 2-gap in this system. When you're mostly running with a 3 man line, and our base under Rex IS a 3 man line, then the ability for those 3 guys to eat up blockers (whether through sheer mass and power like Ngata/Jenkins, or technique and motor like Ellis/Pryce/Gregg) is a must. 2-gapping is the nature of the defense...It's not something that's significant once you get the pieces on the DL, and a guy who can 2 gap is obviously entirely capable of handling just one gap.2. We absolutely 2 gapped the entire time that Mangini was here.

Could live with:
Taylor Mays. My first choice, huge fan of his.
Sergio Kindle. 2nd choice.
Golden Tate. Will be a really good WR in the NFL, I'd like it.
Damian Williams. Reggie Wayne clone, chemistry and good friends with Sanchez.
Nate Allen. Wouldn't be ecstatic, but I like him a lot.
Terrence Cody. Wouldn't love it or hate it, but I could live with it.
Couldn't live with:
Devin McCourtney. CB isn't a first round need.
Everson Griffen. More of a 4-3 DE.
JPP. Not a fan.
Maurkice Pouncey. I wouldn't be furious, but I'd rather it not happen. OL shouldn't be addressed in the first IMO.
Anyway, I agree regarding Cody being a good kid, and there is reason he can get in better shape.
That said... Cody is just not strong enough. He doesn't have the playing strength necessary to be a big time player. The odd thing about him is that he shows it occasionally, but typically guys who do that won't end up being a good pro.
He is very young so it will be more interesting when he gets his man strength a couple years from now. He seems to have the will to do well.
His senior bowl tape is just so bad though... Gets pushed around a number of times during the game and it was just so amazing to watch Dan Williams do almost anything he wanted all the while holding the point extremely well.
Pouncey can play OG in the NFL, doesn't mean that Mangold is going if we drafted him. Could mean that Faneca is. Don't see the Jets letting the best center in football get away, they already had some contract talks with his agents I believe.

Can't think of any others right now.
