Pass on trading up for Berry. Guy is a very good prospect but this draft is too deep at the Safety position to be packaging a whole bunch of picks to move up into top 10.
There is no way a rookie safety could have such an impact.
I think the Jets believe they already have the pieces for a SB and any rookie the Jets get in this draft is icing on the cake.
can we please stop with Eric Berry? Some people have gotten really spoiled by Tanny's last few offseasons and now seem to expect miracles every other week. Just let it go.
I would be surprised if it happened, but can we seriously discount Tanny at this point? I think Berry would be an absolutely tremendous addition and would fill the Ed Reed role in this defense. Revis, Cromartie, Leonard and Berry with Lowery filling in as a 3rd DB? Sign me up for that any day of the week.
Let's not forget that this front office has consistently moved up to snag players they deemed to be head and shoulders above the rest. That player is most definitely Eric Berry in this year's draft. Do we have the ammo to make such a big move? Not on the surface, but we all know Tanny has been extremely creative in the past...
Does this sound like somebody tailor-made for Rex's defense to you? It does to me:
As Berry put it, “I like to know what the defensive tackles are doing. I know what the defensive ends are doing. I know what the linebackers are doing. When I draw it up on the board, I show that I know every single player’s responsibilities.
“I love being the guy coaches can come to and say ‘This week we need you to match up with this guy in the slot,’ or ‘Next week we need you blitzing through the B-gap because they’re weak’, or they want me dropping back in the zone or up in the box. Whatever the coordinator comes to me with that particular week, I want to be the guy who can do all of that.”
a lot players got to get paid next season. i doubt the jets want to take on a top 5. Contract
I'd be estatic but I just don't see it happening. My hope is that Mays is available at 29 and then if we have to move up at some point in the draft, I personally hope it would be to the earlier 2nd round for Cody.
