I WOULD take Cordy Glenn at #16 if there are no takers for us to trade back or any "impact" OLBs left at that spot that we (ie FO or fans) are in LOVE with.
Cordy Glenn can play up to 4 positions on the Oline and START RIGHT AWAY. with the amount of $$$ we have tied in the Oline (Moore,Brick,Mangold) and STILL needing help/depth, he'd be an excellent upgrade at a reasonable price w/the the new CBA for rookies.
Glenn = MONSTER who is VERSATILE VERSATILE VERSATILE
8 slots is relative. 8 slots in the 7th round is insignificant. 8 slots in the 1st round - and the very part of the first round where the talent dropoff is greatest - is astronomically higher.
i guess but the expectations are the same. whether it's 16 or 24 you want a great player. It's not like the Jets are drafting at 5 overall and will have the pick of the litter. they are kind of in no mans land.
I would have no issue drafting a stud RT *cough* glenn *cough* at 16. I also wouldn't mind drafting a Guard with the second round pick. If you can get a top notch O-line, that will go a long way in solving some of the Offensive issues. Although It won't be the sexy pick and it wouldn't help right away, it a couple of years, the jets will be Stout on Offense.
