Coples was only off my list because I never thought he would fall out of the top 5. I was on the Bruce Irvin bandwagon. I didn't like Jone. Ingram would have been an OK pick but he wasn't a beast like Coples. As far as DROY Barron was much better then I gave him credit for so I have to say him. The only pick I think we botched was Davis. He looks OK but I still can't believe we didn't take Massie. I would have also passed on Ganaway for Winn. Honestly I can't believe Winn fell that far I had him with a 2-3 round grade.
And this is why I cringe when people say "YOU WOULD TRADE UP FOR A DE IF YOU HAD THE FIRST PICK NEXT YEAR???!!!!" regarding JaDaveon Clowney.
Clowney is so damned good, demanding triple and double teams nearly every play, that Ingram was a first rounder SIMPLY BY PLAYING NEXT TO A FRESHMAN CLOWNEY.
Why is there a 3 page thread on a san diego charger player?
Ok. Who cares.Because last year most Jet fans were screaming for them to draft Ingram, and most were pissed when they chose Coples instead. Only for Coples to severely outplay Ingram.
This is basically an "eat crow" thread.
One reason people wanted to draft Ingram? He's more of an olb prospect than Coples. The Jets still have no one at olb in a system that relies on the position heavily. Coples looked very good and deserved more playing time but if they are going to stick him at 3-4 DE with occasional 4-3 DE/Dt then his total talents are being lessened. (The hazards of the hybrid defense).
The Jets must draft one or more likely two olbs this year. One huge fail of this front office is ignoring a looming need area until it is situation critical (See safety last year).
^ Top 3 defensive line for the next 10 years ^
If this could happen then I would be loving Rex Ryan as our head coach for the next few years. Even if the team itself was awful (which it probably will be until QB gets ironed out,) watching that Defensive line would be worth the price of my tickets.
Did Coples pass Jones in the sack category?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA. I cant argue with that.Apparantly enough people care since this thread is 3 pages long already.
Some people spout stuff here like it's a given, and don't want to see or even remember when they were wrong.
I preferred Ingram over Coples because I wasn't sure Coples had the constant effort level. It's clear that Coples has special pass rush abilities. To put up over 5 sacks in your rookie year despite not playing a ton of snaps is pretty impressive.
That said, I think Ingram will put it together. WIll be absolutely shocked if he doesn't turn into a 10 sack guy.
