Seeing 2 prospects in the Miami v. Clemson game:
Miami 3-4 DE prospect (The Mo mentioned him earlier):
FS and DE are the big necessities IMO. Allen Bailey is my ideal pick. He looks unblockable pretty much every game and has huge potential. I doubt he's there when we pick though.
McDaniel didn't play that well today against Miami though. I'm a big fan of his, but I was disappointed.
Transfer from Penn State sat out 1 year, set to graduate December 2010:

I like what I read, guy has the size and strength to be a true 3-4 NT....and those blocked Field Goals are evidence of strength and athleticism.
Sounds like a carobon copy of Kris Jenkins....

I called Phil Taylor last before the 09 season even started, I called him Mount Taylor in mocking referrence to Mount Cody who was a tub of lard compared to Taylor who looks like a brick house. I love that size and strength in the middle, this is the kind of prospect Rex can work with here, bring back Jenks one more year to groom him and in a couple of years we have a capable starting NT, for now Pouha's working just fine for us.

heres my prediction the Jets will not draft a run stuffer at NT or DE in the first 3 rounds as long as Rex Ryan is the coach.
they will draft a pass rusher... maybe... but even then this coach would take a cornerback every year and rely upon the Devitos and Pouhas of the world... rather than use a premium draft pick on a DL.
look at the practice squad/bottom of the roster, they already have 2 or 3 sleepers in the pipeline. Marcus Dixon, MTV, Jarron Gilbert etc. This coach doesn't need high priced DL talent to succeed.
Funny, last fall when I brought up the corner from Virginia ( a junior at the time who decided to stay for his senior year) as a possible first rounder for us to pair with Revis you said we didn't need a CB, and I told you Rex cannot have enough of them, but you kept shooting the idea down and lo and behold we draft a corner.
I think the Jets will go BPA this year, maybe a DL or an OL, we know how much you think we don't need offensive linemen since 7 is enough, but I wouldn't put it past them to go OL especially if the go the BPA route.

slik you make me laugh dude
sorry im not consistent enough for ya... i'll try to improve in the future. LOL
back to the draft I can see the Jets going DL but it won't be a pure runstuffer. NT type of guy isnt going to the Jets with a high pick.
it would be someone they believe can pass rush.
with Rex turning Devito and Pouha into studs, why waste any resources on a run stuffer?
YOU: Yeah yeah... with the studs we have on the OL (Turner and Hunter were our only backups at the time btw) why waste a pick on an OL? What we need is a blocking TE!
Me and Tanny say: (Slauson, Ducasse)
YOU: Yeah yeah: With the over abundance of corners we have (Lito, Strickland) we don't need corners.
Me and Tanny say: Wilson and Cro
YOU: Yeah yeah, we don't need a run stuffer with Pito, Tino and DeVito...
P.S- Be careful Bit

I think Pouha can go another 5+ years as the teams NT. We simply don't need one. We do need starting DE material and some depth there behind. I don't think the team resigns Ellis, even though he has been incredible, tho not flashy.
Behind Pouha, we have an all-star cast on PS.
