    10 years? Okay, so that illustrious list includes

    Cadillac Williams
    Cendric Benson
    William Green
    Darren McFadden
    Adrian Peterson
    Ronnie Brown
    Johnathan Stewart
    Reggie Bush
    Marshawn Lynch
    Knowshon Moreno
    C.J Spiller

    Only player worth a damn could be Peterson, but look what happens when a team takes a player like that and then goes only to safe picks. Runningbacks are not vital play makers in these league anymore.

    Everyone in red COULD compliment an already built team but they're not going to carry you to a superbowl

    later on day 2 or 3 of the draft.

    As far as first rounders go, you take BAP always. Trent would be one of the biggest bargains in the last decade if we were able to get him at 16.

    Yes we have bigger needs but what has Greene done to make a statement that he can carry the load for an entire season, as our bell cow?
    TR at 16 would be manna from Heaven

    Here is Sporting news latest mock from today. Guess who they have us taking:

    16. New York Jets: Trent Richardson*, RB, Alabama. Shonn Greene has not developed into the player New York hoped he would be. Richardson is a rare talent who should greatly help Mark Sanchez in 2012.

    Sparano + solid RT + Richardson = Get back to punching teams in the f*cking mouth!

    Btw this reminded me, I saw in another thread you touting DeCastro. I think the reason you don't take a guy like him regardless of whether TR is taken or not, is that you have elite guards available in FA (Nicks, Grubbs). You will rarely find a non-cancerous elite WR, an elite pass rusher, or a young elite runner on the FA market. OL sadly still don't get love from FOs... you'd think they'd learn by now.

    What if the RT's not Solid, UT?

    This "solid RT" business has become contrived.

    Greene plus a passing game =

    Sanchez plus new eyeballs =

    Jets + a SB =

    Look every single skill position we could possibly pick in this draft is contingent on us getting a solid RT. Floyd will look like garbage if Sanchez is planted on the ground cause Hunter let another guy right through.

    Oh i know. I'm aware of the importance of the Oline being a "solid" front, but the moniker of solid RT is being stapled to everything right now. It seems a little trite to say that's all. Plenty of teams operate succesfully with inferior olines that the one we'll be sporting next year (with Turner). Sanchez had time. He was certainly under duress at times, but he didn't always pull the trigger on a A LOT of 3 step drops.

    I hope we find someone in FA. In fact, i just want FA to get here already so i know what the state of affairs is heading into the draft.

    That's an ugly list.

    I don't have tunnel vision on Richardson. I do think the Jets need a starting RB who can catch out of the backfield. I'm a Shonn Greene fan he's not an every down back imo.

    We can speculate all we want on who The Jets will and should take, but the reality is that The Jets will not know who they will be picking until they are on the clock. With so many legitimate needs the board is going to dictate our pick. Richardson would be nice, but I do not think he will be there at 16. Tanny will be hard pressed to pass up the BPA when he is on the clock for any one position. The BPA at 16 will probably be someone that we need and that will be the guy we draft.

    Sgt. Buzzkill just got a promotion and he will now be called Capt. Obvious!

    I think we all know it's speculation and that the Jets don't know who they're taking yet and that the 1st 15 picks will determine who the Jets can select. Nobody needs you to point that out.

    I just enjoy talking about the draft and I know everybody else here understands that none of what we say actually matters.

    Agreed which is why you wonder why the Jets are going back into the dark ages and getting back to ground and pound.

    just eyeballing this list, nearly all of these guys come from major programs. rbs playing with very good to elite talent can look better than they actually are, maybe moreso than other positions.

    i happen to agree with another poster that under sporanno, the jets will gravitate to rbs who can catch. maybe this guy won't be afraid to use mcknight more often inthe passing game. the jets were at their best on offense when he and kerley were involved.

    Taking a Floyd/Jeffery in rd 1 and hoping Lamar Miller is available in rd 2 isn't a bad play either. IMO Miller and Greene go perfect together.

    Whoa. Say what?!

    edit** actually thats not true. Basically what I want - is guaranteed to not happen. So you can basically cross off Floyd.
