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.
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.

I love these Paradis draft arguments.
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?
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.
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.
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)
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
