For anyone out there questioning our 3rd round pick i just watched about an hour of film from different cut ups, and im not here to say we got Lance Briggs but i must say i am not at all mad, and thats EXACTLY who he reminds me of.
Look at the entire rest of the 3rd round. Look in terms of both VALUE and NEED on our team and there is no more than 2 PLAYERS that we as a fan base really could have said "We should have taken him."*
1. Micheal Ignew TE Miami
2. Sean Spence LB Pittsburgh
** (Spence on here ONLY because we took a LB with the pick so obviously the Jets liked D.D. more than Spence)
REMEMBER the Bernard Peirces are not so much of a need, and any of these OT's we wouldnt have really known because they werent household names...
Its amaizing but look we really cant complain an REMEMBER we picked a Pass Rusher/Run Stuffer, a WR, and have no need for a DT-
Its amaizing but look we really cant complain-
77. New York Jets: Demario Davis, LB, Arkansas State
78. Miami Dolphins: Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
79. Chicago Bears: Brandon Hardin, S, Oregon State
80. Arizona Cardinals: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
81. Dallas Cowboys: Tyrone Crawford, DE, Boise State

[I]Overall, Davis is one of the most explosive and well rounded defensive players in this year’s draft. He comes from a smaller school, where not many people saw him play. Davis is always around the ball and plays with such power and intensity that there is no doubt in my mind he will make in in the NFL. He will be a fit with just about every team in the league regardless of the type of defense they run. Look for Davis to come off the board in round three and looking back on it in five years that could be the steal of the draft.[/I]
[QUOTE=Savage69;4451897]Here's a tape on Davis he seems to have the pre game rap down like TJ and LT did.. [URL]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=insE7hE_Czs&feature=player_embedded[/URL][/QUOTE]
This kid looks like a beast.
If Coples is the real deal, this could be the best 1-3 picks I can recall for the Jets.
[QUOTE]He is prone to overrun plays at times and fly past the point of attack, which makes him susceptible to failing to contain cutback runners. Additionally, Davis is not consistent in pass coverage, especially in a zone defense which negates his speed.[/QUOTE]
Not saying he can't improve on said weakness, but just pointing it out.

[QUOTE=Laxman;4451944]It's possible.... just possible..... that the Jets have a better coaching staff than Arkansas St.----- you can't coach speed, and he's got that...... everything else, they can work on.[/QUOTE]
absolutely! like i said, i like the pick...i'm just reacting to what i read...it may take him time to develop his pass coverage skills a bit (based on what i'm reading), but completely agree with you...he has the natural skill set so the rest should follow.
Always comedy when people who work in cubicles for their living complain about draft picks. They don't know one thing about this player yet sit and whine about it. My Mel Kiper draft book didn't have this guy as a best available, boooo hooooooo, shut up, you don't have a clue, go back to flipping burgers!
[QUOTE=southside;4451994]That video of him makes me want to gizz in my pants and then run through a wall with the Wolf Pack. Seriously, this pick gives me a boner.
Did you see that fkn hit?!?! And hearing him speak, man he reminds me ALOT of Ray Lewis in that department. And he plays fast as hell with that violence that I love in a LB. That kid brings the wood.[/QUOTE]
his sideline to sideline speed is MUCH needed....he's going to have an instant impact in many ways, and also take some time to develop in other ways...net net he will improve our D from day 1
what the Jets said in last nights post round three presser
We went to his pro day and had him in for a visit in which one of our coaches put him through a bunch of drills to test whether he possessed the necessary coverage and reaction skills to drop back as an ILB in the NFL
apparently, since these same guys drafted him, he must have tested out OK
although I'm sure the draftniks at Foxsports had a better hands-on way to judge his being "lost" in pass coverage
Not saying that this guy is going to come in and become [B]the[/B] team leader,but.... you can tell he is a very motivated and positive guy. Last year this is what we missed the most. W:yes:e had no one talkin it up. No leader. You cannot win without one on the team! Tony Richardson was our last one until he left. This guy Davis seems to have a lot of HEART!!! He could help stirs things up, and with time become one of the team leaders!~ Go Jets Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
