    Coulda had Bobby Massie at 108

    We'd be set at RT. Tebow better be worth it.

    The way he fell signaled that he might not be a starter this year

    More likely that it was off the field or injury related.

    According to Tony on Draft Insider, the word on the street was that Massie wouldn't be competing to start for at least a year and he was raw, a project.

    Even if that weren't the case, saying "we'd be set" based on a draft pick that hasn't even put on an NFL jersey yet is awfully premature. Sounds to me like the Jets didn't want to invest in another raw OT after drafting Ducasse, who might end up being productive well before Massie.

    yup and then youd post a thread saying we need speed at OLB...

    We will take a olineman with a late round pick..maybe 2.

    In 6th I expect OL/S/RB

    yup which makes sense....

    I'll say this...I'll be shocked if Hunter is our starting RT opening day.

    I will gladly go on record saying Tebow will have a more POSITIVE impact on the 2012 Jets than this Massie kid (or likely any pick at 108) would have had.

    Of course, I see Tebow as a better version of Brad Smith, and not even remotely a threat to start at QB, so that's where my guarantee is coming from . . .

    I'll take Tebow over a project RT prospect any day...we can still address that in the later rounds and post draft

    Mayock had Massie at #44 on his top 100 overall. Said he'll get some snaps this year. I think it was Charles Davis who said he's good enough to eventually play him at LT, if someone wanted to move him there.

    A potted plant at pick #108 would move ahead of Hunter on the depth chart...

    And who says we would have drafted Massie at 108? If the Jets wanted to, I'm sure they could have traded their 3rd round pick next year for the first pick in the 4th round, or somewhere in that range. One of the teams before Arizona would have taken a 3rd rounder next year for their 4th rounder this year.

    We'll never know...

    My underlying premise is that the Jets wasted the opportunity on Tebow.

    getting away from the coulda-shudda department into the world of reality


    the NY Jets in a trade with the Denver got an athletic backup quarterback AND a former first round pick WHO ACTUALLY started at QB for the Broncos last year and WON a playoff game in OT against the Pittsburgh Steelers

    FOR

    Phillip Blake, a middling center from Baylor whom the Broncos drafted with the fourth round pick they received from the NYJ

    "wasted" in a strong word...the jets grabbed a guy who adds a tremendous dimension to our offense...take that over a project RT who hasn't played a single down in the NFL any day of the week.

    I guess that's correct, sort of

    if you don't agree that Tebow is

    1) better than Mark Brunell as a backup

    2) better than Jeremy Kerley/LT were last year at the direct snap option

    and

    3) better than Phillip Blake, Center from Baylor

    Except that our need was at tackle, not center, and Massie would have been there for us.

    So if their 4th round pick was a bust, like 90% of 4th rounders historically have been, what did they lose? I just can't believe some of you people are acting like they gave a 1st round pick for Tebow. It's a 4th rounder. 4th. Check up on how many good 4th rounders there are. Just because you can name a couple good 4th rounders in history doesn't mean it's a terrible loss. I am sure I can name about 9 times as many 4th rounders who didn't make it as you can name that did.

    Agreed. If we were talking rounds 1 - 3 this might be a discussion...but a 4th? no big deal. a GREAT value trade by Tanny.
