Thread: Upshaw, Barron, Floyd, or Ingram?

  1. #1

    Upshaw, Barron, Floyd, or Ingram?

    Assuming none get picked before us (very unlikely), which is the best pick?

    Upshaw, a good DE? (In my opinion, I do not think he makes the transition to NFL and is a BUST)

    Barron, a great safety? (Much needed - really would like to pick Barron)

    Ingram, a great LB/DE hybrid? (Looks like a legit pass-rusher, but would prefer Barron the Safety instead)

    Floyd, a great receiver? (Receivers are dime a dozen, don't think we should take Floyd if Barron/Ingram are available)

    My opinion? Take Barron if available. If not? Ingram. If both are gone, take Floyd. If all three gone? Personally I would not take Upshaw.

    So who else is a good pick at 16 if Floyd/Barron/Ingram are gone?

    I think Floyd is a great talent but he does not make our team better. We are a ball control/running offense. We dont have a gunslinger to throw the ball and our problems on offense lie with the O-Line and JAG running backs on our roster. A star receiver will not make our offense better.

    Additionally, we can upgrade our receiving corps in later rounds as the depth in receivers for this draft is great. We can conceivably upgrade our receivers in the 3rd or even later rounds. We will not have equal talent at the other positions (LB and S) after the early to mid 2nd.

    Sounds okay, but I don't want Upshaw. Who else can we get if all the above are taken?

    Draft profile: S Mark Barron

    Over the next 13 days, right up until draft day, we'll examine players the Jets could select, focusing primarily on the first round (16th overall).

    [B]Player[/B]: Mark Barron, S, Alabama

    [B]Height/weight[/B]: 6-foot-1, 215 pounds

    [B]Scouts, Inc. ranking[/B]: 11

    [B]Draft projection[/B]: First round (14th to 20th)

    [B]Scouting report[/B]: Barron is the best safety in a weak class of safeties -- and that's not meant as an backhanded compliment. He's the complete package -- good size, sound tackler, solid in pass coverage, instinctive, strong leader, and we could go on. One scout told me, "He's a big hitter, but he can run and cover, too." Barron is a natural strong safety, although he said he played free safety his senior year. The Jets just signed a strong safety in [B]LaRon Landry[/B], but that shouldn't have a big impact on Barron's draft value. The safeties are interchangeable in the Jets' scheme. He has the ability to cover tight ends, a bugaboo for the Jets, and some receivers, if necessary. He ran a 4.56 at his recent pro day -- only two months after surgery to repair a sports hernia. He has the ability and smarts to be a Day 1 starter. The Cowboys (14th) and Eagles (15th) are reportedly hot for Barron, so he may not be available for the Jets.

    [B]Key stat[/B]: In 39 career starts at Alabama, Barron recorded 12 interceptions.

    [B]Red flags[/B]: In March, 2011, Barron was arrested for second-degree hindering prosecution, a misdemeanor. At the time, Barron told a Mobile Police Department officer his car, which was found crashed, had been taken without permission by a man Barron said he knew only as ''Bull.'' The officer determined the person was Barron's cousin. Barron was released an hour after his arrest after posting a $500 bond.

    [B]In his own words[/B]: "We played in a very difficult defense, first of all. We did a lot of different schemes. As far as communicating, I had a lot to do with that on the back end. I feel like sometimes I brought some energy with the hits that I made and things of that nature. So, I did a lot of different things."

    This. We have Rex, the defense is going to be good no matter what personnel we have on that side. We have to improve the offense or the season is doomed before it even starts.

    We need to emerge from this draft with the following in this order:

    LB
    WR
    OL
    S
    TE
    RB

    The LB and WR positions are difficult to predict in later rounds of the draft. Ideally Rounds 1-2-3 will be LB WR and OT in no particular order. Safetys, TE's and RB's can be found with quality in the later rounds. Thats where the focus should be.

    I'd be happy with Ingram, Barron or Floyd or even a solid OT in Round 1. Doesn't matter as long as we come away with a bunch of bodies that fit the 6 positions above.

    we need someone to stretch the field to open it up for the run game so we need to upgrade at WR to be a better team

    Here it is right here. Ingram won't be available.

    I can't believe so many are sleeping on how much Floyd can change this team. He is the medicine for a terrible 3rd-down offense and a QB who struggles at times with accuracy issues.

    Wouldn't be pissed if Barron was the pick though.
