    He will select the highest rated offensive playmaker on the board, simple as that.

    Problem is, there are no offensive playmakers in this draft worthy of a Top 10 pick.

    If we go offense, it either has to be a QB or an OL like Warmack.

    Although Zach Ertz, the TE from Stanford, is starting to rise up the boards.

    Curtis Martin was good at sliding, but didn't have much burst. Leon Washington was pretty close, but not quite. Lamont Jordan, Thomas Jones, Shonn Greene, just tired of these slow-poke power backs already.

    Give us a speedy back and a pass-catching dump off back, that's half our offensive issue solved right there.

    As soon as I saw him miss tackles left and right in the BCS Championship, I said to myself "Jets' first pick in the draft. Guaranteed."

    I'm not a draft guy, so help me here.

    Can we gently trade down and grab the best RB and WR possible? Or are they so average that it's not even worth discussing?

    We have an in-house solution. Give McKnight a chance in that role and I think we'll all be pleasantly surprised

    There's a good chance that there won't be a single RB or WR drafted in the 1st round.

    The WR and RB class is deep, but no one really stands out.

    You can get a very good RB in the second or even third round this year. There might not be a first round RB this year.

    Allen and Patterson could go late in the first.

    I could not agree more!!!

    So did Peterson and Tiki Barber. For guys that really want to improve, fumblitis is a one-offeason fix.

    If he is healthy Allen is well worth a top ten pick. Outside of him I wouldn't be in any hurry to draft WR or RB in the 1st. Allen is the only true #1 IMO. Patterson, Hopkins, Hunter Woods, William, Austin, and Rodgers are all great talent but not a huge difference overall.

He is an ILB who fits Rex's scheme and could come in and start right away. Would be a crazy move like the Tebow trade. However, unlike the Tebow move it could actually help the Jets win games.

    Think about that Manti Te'o believed the chick in that photo was his girlfriend and the girl in the photo never had any clue. I mean it's nuts, lol

    We can take this guy at #9:
    WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee

    Most mocks have him going to the fins at 12. But if he runs a fast 40, we could be interested at 9.

    If geno smith falls, we could go there too. But running back would be a reach at 9.

    I don't see it. Manti won't go top ten but I doubt he lasts until our pick in the second round.

    We're going to go pass rusher or OL in the first, assuming we can't trade the pick. We need playmakers but there just aren't a lot of 1st round (particularly top ten) guys to justify taking.

    I'm all about Warmack. He's going to be a beast.

    That's the smart choice, unless Geno falls.

    A lot of people might b*tch about taking an interior OL in the Top 10 but I doubt people would complain much once they see Warmack out there annihilating everyone in front of him.

    1st round? 2nd round? This is all crazy talk.

    Te'o is going to drop like a rock when investigators hired by teams start to uncover more and more of his complicity in perpetuating the hoax, for at lwast several months this fall.

    Best case scenario for him, he was completely duped until late dec like he claims...does anyone want this moron being their defensive leader?

    Furthermore, how does he avoid permanent mental scarring from the abuse he'll have to endure? You guys seriously think that this is someone who can ever be seen again as a leader of men?

    We have a vontaze burfict situation here...manti is going to fall until 6th, 7th, or udfa.

    There's an awful lot of wishers on here.

    Most of this draft's talent in the first round wouldn't have been in the first round the past two years.

    This draft is crap up top. A smart GM will trade down and attempt to amass picks next year.

    Stop with this band-aid crap. It's almost a necessity for the Jets to pack this season in like Polian did when Peyton went down and get a real vision moving forward based upon a talented superstar player, not some bombastic idiot head coach.
