    Dime a dozen my ass.
    That's a load of sh*t. elite? How whore'd out is that word now? Luck is the only elite prospect in that group. Kalil? Blackmon? Those dudes are not freaking ELITE prospects. Great, yes. ...spare me on the babylon parade though.

    That's a ridiculous statement. Richardson couldn't hold Peterson's jockstrap. He IS a dime a dozen. A great talent - sure, but great talent at that position is a dime a dozen. Unless you're without talent at RB, you're not spending a 1st round pick on this years "arbitrary HOF RB from the 80s".

    We could use an upgrade yes, but other areas are of 100x greater need. There's going to be an assload of FA runningbacks to pick from and that IS the position to beef up on with FAs.

    hell no. he's worth every inch of #16

    He's definitely on the Peterson/McFadden level as a prospect. The only reason we'll have even the slightest chance of him falling to us is because basically every team in the 5-15 area is set at RB.

    I agree that we need a WR, but how much of a difference will it make if Sanchez is constantly throwing the ball at their feet and overthrowing them by 10 yards? Not to mention that a lot of these receivers take 2-3 years before they're ready to make an impact. RB is one of the few positions where guys can step in and dominate from day one.
    Exactly and unlike Peterson and McFadden, there are no durability concerns with Richardson at all... (knocking on wood)... this kid is build like a freaking bulldozer...

    I think the two of you should be dragged out to a field and shot for saying Richardson is Peterson-esque... but if that's true, then he's not making it to #16 - so we can't stop talking about it and get back to reality.

    The Jets need to draft an explosive player. All these being equal, you'd draft the explosive WR over the explosive RB, but things aren't equal between Floyd and Richardson, so you'd have to go with TR.

    Dude, if you actually believe this, then you must not watch much Alabama football.

    Richardson is easily the best RB prospect since Peterson. The guy has been compared to f*cking Bo Jackson and Earl Campbell for crying out loud.

    If you join us for saying Trent Richardson is dime a dozen...

    And btw, many many scouts agree that Richardson is as good a running back prospect as their has been in recent years. Dont know why you get all emotional just because not everybody agrees with you that Michael Floyd is the must pick at 16...

    The dude is not even anywhere near as good as Adrian Peterson. He's a back with a ton of carries from a school that does nothing but run the ball

    The best we'll see out of him is Marshawn Lynch production which doesnt win you a superbowl

    Richardson ain't lasting to 16. If he starts sliding someone trades up for him. Imagine the Pats packaging some of their million picks to take him ahead of us lol?

    whats the point of a wr if your qb is getting plastered everytime he drops back to pass. The priority has to be ol/olb

    It was his first year shouldering the load, and he's a true junior. Not that worn down at all.

    I have hard time believing that. Every year scouts who love to see their name publish make outlandish statments like this. Am I undervaluing him? Possibly. Am i underestimated how easy it is to acquire talent at this position. No.

    They're not bad hey? But seriously - every year people are ready to jump on drafting anything but WR with the 1st pick. ...This longsnapper from Illinois looks pretty good Paradis

    I haven't brought up floyd here. If you like Jeffrey, pray for him. Whatever. doesn't matter - I've just had enough of the Plaxico's of the league on our team.

    Is Floyd gonna be a Megatron type? If Jets brass think so, then they NEED to draft Floyd. You can find a good RB in rd 3 or 4. or FA.

    I will use a car as an analogy:

    We want a Ferrari(ground and pound offense) but we are only putting a 4 cylinder engine in it at the moment(Greene).

    If we are going to continue to run this offense, its time to address the most key component of it. The running back!

    Get an elite back or scrap this ground and pound for the fling and wing philosphy. In this case, see same analogy sans Trich and insert Blackmon.

    In short, lets all pray that Richardson runs a bad 40 time and falls to 16.
    The engine of the running game is most definitely not the running back, I assure you. That would insinuate it's the most important part, and it's not.

    The offensive line is the whole car, the running back is just the guy in the passenger's seat. If you want to fix the running game, you fix the right side of the line that proved to be incredibly leaky this season. Without the need to exhaust all of the help from TE's and backs on helping the right side from collapsing, the help can be spread out so Brick can get some help every now and then, the reason he had a down season.

    If you want to use to the car as a metaphor for the running game, the offensive line makes up the entirety of the car.

    Rushing for a team with an NFL sized line and being the only means of offense inflate numbers. This guy is no where near as good as Peterson was and there's a reason they're talking about him slipping out of the top 10. Alabama is becoming the Wisconsin of the SEC for runningback prospects.

    30+ Runningbacks have been drafted since 2000


    Only 3 have a ring and only one can truly say he was the reason for winning that ring (Jamal Lewis)

    I don't think he is as good as Peterson either. He's just not worn down.

    I think he is intriguing if he can run, catch, and block and play any and every snap or down and distance for an offense like ours.

    richardson is not falling to 16
    cant say elite but hes def a special player

    comparing mike floyd to megatron is ludicrous
    floyd doesnt have megatrons speed or size
