Thread: Santonio Holmes means no WR in 1st... now what?

  1. #41
    Kyle Wilson will be one of the few guys I'm rooting for to fall. He will go around 20, so it is kind of possible, although unlikely.

    I think it is.

    Will the Jets draft a WR to essentially be inactive the entire year? He'll be lucky to get on the field when Holmes is suspended. After that you can forget about it.

    I can see them sitting an OLineman like Iupati or CB like Wilson, but not a WR. That doesn't make sense to me.

    Odrick, Cody, Iupati, Graham, and EThomas are the choices.

    Hell yeah I'm pissed.

    I'll get over it though.

    As Gato said, for a 5th.

    Even with a lockout next season, if there is a draft, it has four Dez Bryant's in it.

    Not just one.
    I don't think us drafting a WR was as out of the question as some may believe. The Steeler's asking price for Santonio is not synonymous with where we valued drafting a WR this year. The guy came to us SUPERCHEAP. My dad always told me, "if you see a deal, take it... unless it breaks the bank." And with a year left on his deal, he's obviously of better value to us than picking a WR in the first.

    Now, does this mean that Tanny's not taking a WR with our first (or second) pick anymore? Probably, but that doesn't mean he didn't value a WR there.

    what did i miss here? When the hell did McCourty become a consensus pick for JI members??

    At 29? really? a special teams ace gets you a first rnd ticket?

    Bullet dodged. Go get the BPA.

    We have a lot of flexibility now in rounds 1 and 2.
