If your best chance to see the field is as a #3, it's not out of the realm of possibility that you'd end up as the #4. And yes, I would have loved to have Braylon as the #4 on this team.
P.S. - the same Kerley you're hyping up as an irreplacable slot man is the only player to be in Rex's doghouse in 3 seasons.
Sigh.... Bringing Bray-bray back would have completed me.
Braylon Edwards - WR - Seahawks
According to ESPN New York, the Jets did have some level of interest in Braylon Edwards as a "down the road option" before he signed with Seattle.
This could be one the Jets end up regretting. Yahoo's Doug Farrar observed that Edwards looked good, aggressively beating the press off the line in Tuesday's practice. The Jets passing game, on the other hand, has a been a mess early in the camp with unproven receivers struggling to separate from defenders.
At this point, no team would pick Edwards over Hill, as the latter presents a better franchise option. His whole career is ahead of him. But Hill would stand next to NO chance unseating Edwards as the #2 come week 1.
Wake up man.
So we're arguing over which scrub should line up at the 4 WR spot?
Hate to break it to those who drool over BE, but 4's, they're interchangeable parts that in the scheme of things mean squat.
Also, lets not forget the fact that outside of only one, and I repeat one breakout season back in 2007 (5 years ago) Braylon Edwards has been nothing more than a dime a dozen type of NFL WR.
He's had seasons of only 15, 32, 45, 53, 55 and 61 receptions.
He's had seasons of only 0, 3, 3, 4, 6 and 7 TD receptions.
He's just never been anything special. Below average to above average at the very best. No chance Edwards started over Hill.
There is no chance in hell that a WR who's 29 years old in Edwards, coming off an injury plagued season, as a shell of what he once was during the 2007 season would EVER start over a 21 year old kid who's 6'4, blazing fast 4.3 flat type of speed, top of the line, more like outstanding jumping/leaping ability, a true deep threat who led the entire Nation in average yards per receptions, ranked as the Countries #2 run blocking wide out coming out of college with all the potential/ability to become a red zone monster/freak of nature. No chance Edwards would have been able to start over that, none what so ever.
Wake up man.

BE couldn't hold the 3rd spot on a team that was desperate for offense last year and then was injured. But people fail to realize he sucked before he was injured. You don't even know if he could make a teams roster, never mind become a 2 over Hill.
Wake up, it's not 2010.
I already know the answer to this but.......you would prefer Schillens to Braylon? Because thats really what the comparison is. The Jets were drafting Hill no matter what. It really comes down to who you would want as the #3/4 veteran WR. The roles would be exactly as they are now, just with Braylon you have a lot more familiarity with Sanchez already.
Braylon starting over Hill? That's a joke I hope lol. And Schillens was obviously recommended by our receivers coach, Lal, easy call, you go with your coach's recommendation.
You guys are rich. "hey, no way braylon - his stats last year!" but Schilens... i mean that guy, he tore it up. with his 1 reception and mr.glass body.
Is it a coincidence the same poeple who think Hill is an automatic #2 week one, those same folks spend NEXT TO NO TIME in the draft forum?
How about you captain crunch? You don't know a god damn thing about college ball, but hey - as soon as that a$$hole puts on a Jets jersey, you know what time he takes his daily deuce, hey?"let me tell you something about stephen hill, this guy eats his corn, like his eats tacklers. blah blah, I'm a Styrofoam human.."
Hill is going to take some time to develop you guys. Get used to that notion. He's a situational player in year #1. Braylon would have taken more snaps. Chaz will eclipse the sun i'm sure at some point this offseason, but he'll catch a butterfly in the knee and be pronounced dead on the scene.
