Not going to pretent I am any expert and was unsure yesterday about some pick made but in the end it appears they did their homework and took some gambles that were worth taking. Can't complain in the end. Gave them a "A". Yes I am a homer.
75% of the reason why Sanchez struggled last year was due to our horse**** O-line. So Tanny goes out and drafts 1 guard! So pissed that our O-line is not a focus here. Ground and pound goes no where without a solid blocking line. Any deep threat by Hill or Holmes is negated when Sanchez is on his ass or scrambling in 1.5 seconds. I am a super positive guy when it come to defending the Jets, but I'm a bit surprised here.
The Jets addressed some depth issues late which I liked. The biggest problem on defense last year in my opinion was the inability to cover tight ends. We got a few guys who could potentially help in that area with the safeties and Demario Davis. And the 2 top guys have game-breaker potential.
I give it a B to B-. Depending on if they bring in a capable starter for RT. I think they failed to address this and are underestimating the problem we have.
I don't see how anybody could give it an A. As much as I LOVE Hill, he and Coples are somewhat unknowns. And drafting unknowns in the 1st and 2nd is risky. Hill hasn't played enough and Coples was up and down. Hopefully we can coach them up. But we have to be realistic.
I would have preferred an OL earlier than the 6th but the 3rd round pick I think was a good pick and the value makes up for it. Instant contributor on STs and he will see some significant playing time on Defense. 3rd downs especially.
I like the Baylor kids. Neither will be a significant contributor this year. Maybe the RB will be but I do not think RG2 will challenge for a spot. I would have preferred them to get a Tackle, but I still like the pick.
The 6th and 7th rounds . . . I am not going to pretend I know these people. I have seen Allen play. I like adding another couple of Safeties to the mix.
I will predict that this will be our best draft OVERALL since 2006. I think the Jets will eventually have at least 4 starters come out of this draft.
