My first shot at being a couch GM. How will I get the Jets to the Promised Land in 2012:
This team needs an injection of talent so let's give it some.
Key Players let go:
Ahmad Brooks: Stout against the run, younger than BT. Won't pack the pass rushing punch we need but he can set the edge.
Chad Henne: Competent backup, knows Sparano, will push Sanchez, shouldn't cost too much, should be competent enough to manage game in a ball control offense
Dashon Goldson: BALLHAWK, open the checkbook Woody, we need a playmaker in the middle to go with Cro and Revis. Gonna be pricey because he's coming off of a pro bowl season, but will be well worth it.
Demetrius Bell: Fills need at Tackle, Having Sparano should make his transition to RT much easier.
Jay Feely: Reliable for us when he was here, let's get him back.
Braylon Edwards: This ship might have sailed, but if he's healthy I would give him an incentive laden deal; shouldnt get much attention in FA
Rd 1: Nick Perry: Here's our pass rush!!!! Pace will serve as his stop gap. Will def get the chance to wreak havoc in a rex ryan scheme.
Rd 2: Vontaze Burfict/Donta Hightower: May have to trade up to get him but will be perfect. ILB with a mean streak is what we need. Hightower will be a nice consolation prize if Burfict projects to the 1st rd.
Rd 3: Nick Toon: Good Playmaker in Wisconsin with good size. Let's develop him for when we can get rid of Tone.
Rd 4: Joel Foreman: Add another OL to develop.
Rd 5: George Lloka: Safety, will replace Brodney Pool. Translates as a rangy FS, not really an in the box SS.
Rd 6: George Bryan: Huge TE, possibly Blocking TE. Decent Hands and Blocking Ability.
Rd 7: Chris Rainey: Undersized but a burner. Would take LT's roster spot. Some Character issues.
QB: Mark Sanchez
RB: Shonn Greene/Joe McKnight
FB: John Conner
WR: Santonio Holmes/Jeremy Kerley
WR: Braylon Edwards/Nick Toon
TE: Dustin Keller/Jeff Cumberland
LT: D'Brickshaw Ferguson
LG: Matt Slauson
C: Nick Mangold
RG: Brandon Moore
RT: Demetrius Bell
DE: Mo Wilkerson
NT: Sione Pouha
DT: Mike Devito
OLB: Calvin Pace/Aaron Maybin
ILB: David Harris
ILB: Vontaze Burfict
OLB: Ahmad Brooks/Nick Perry
CB: Darelle Revis
CB: Antonio Cromartie
S: Dashon Goldson
S: Jim Leonhard
I tried my best, hopefully we can get to the promised land with what I did as a couch GM.

Overall well done, its quite comprehensive and addresses all our major needs. I concur that Toon might not be there at 3, if so I propose that we pick up LaMichael James as we need an electrifying runner at RB to supplement the stable.
