Kenrick Ellis ran a 5.19 unofficial on one of his runs...Ballard ran a 4.7 or so...Watt ran in the 4.7s at 290...Quinn was 265 and ran in the 4.67 unofficial....Aldon Smith ran a 4.74 unofficial....Brooks Reed ran in the 4.6 range and is looking good in drills...there's so many DL in this draft...Lawrence Guy ran a 4.95 and a 5.04 unofficial at 305...
I think my Wilkerson is becoming my favorite DL in this draft, even over Heyward. Both of those guys could change this D IMO...I wish Cam Jordan didn't destroy this draft process so thoroughly...
Even with the strong 40 Ballard at 6'4 283 is kind of disappointing...I remember when I first heard of him and Googled him he was 6'6 295...then he started shrinking...Heyward managed to have this not happen to him as he came in with the very respectable 6'5 295.
And the New York Jets select with their 1st round pick.......a cornerback!
That wouldn't bother me at all, CB or any other position on Defense, preferably the front 7.
I'm reading that as many as 5 QB's go in the first round. With it now being a QB driven league every team has to roll the dice to find their Franchise QB; they have no choice.
It's supposedly an incredibly strong draft for D-linemen so I'm sure Tanny does whatever it takes to get pass-rush help.
That's all I want to see, is to keep adding pieces to make the D as dominant as possible, I wouldn't mind seeing the entire draft be D, I only say this because whatever you add to Offense is just a waste...for now.
The Jets are not winning a Super Bowl next year; I've already come to terms with that.
Just a shame, I'm sure this will be a hated statement by the rest of the country, but in my opinion, since my team has NY to start their name they should have the BEST coaches and management in the whole league, EVERY year (just because it's NY), you can never have all the best players, but since it's NY, the best coaches should be a given. That goes for any sport.
Anybody think Brain Shottenheimer and Jeff Wilpon are close friends?
