    Yeah, no.

    Seeing him taken out of the game by Alabama's Offensive Line AND Running Backs was enough for me. I understand that Wilkerson and Coples will help keep OLineman off of him, but the last thing we need to do is continue to draft defensive players. We have a solid defense outside of OLB and one S position, and even that might be filled with a player on the roster. If the Jets target someone on defense before the third or fourth round, I'll be furious. Te'o will also likely not drop into the second. There are numerous teams that would be interested including Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

    Then prepare to be furious because they are probably going to go defense with the 9th pick strictly because there is no good skill player on offense that is worthy of that pick.

    As for Teo, I think the Giants could use him. Their LB corps was horrendous.

    Most overrated player coming out of college. This year's AJ Hawk at best, boar hunter at worst.

    This is a very weak draft for offensive skill positions including QB.

    I think they are going to go either OLB or OL.

    I was in fact thinking offensive line. Plenty of good players or lets trade the pick for 2 later picks.

    No way he's a first round talent. He was exposed in the
    Alabama game. Third round talent.

    I have to agree. Teo is third round talent unless he shows top round measurables at the combine. If he really does show great measurables - 40 yrd dash , strength and agility and knowledge and if he has good size then he really should be a first round pick. I guess we will find out.

    One personnel executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, compared Teo as a football player to Jets linebacker David Harris. The executive said its possible Teo, who helped Notre Dame to a 12-1 record, goes in the first round if a team needs a middle linebacker.

    There's two camps of thought on Manti Teo: 1) excellent prospect no way can fall to rd 2 or 2) he absolutely sucks and got exposed by Alabama.


    I think he'd be fine in Rex's system. Rex turned Pouha from scrub into elite NT I can see him doing the same for Teo. Don't think he's a first round talent so that and the silly fake gf scandal will probably make him available in rd 2 for us.

    Scott, Pace and Thomas are all history. That's 3/4 of our starting LB Corps. Assuming McIntyre takes on weakside OLB we still need 2 LB's plus another just for depth. So yeah, we need defensive players in this draft.

    He's a top ten pick. He'll likely last only until the Jets 1st round pick. If they do not take him then, they won't get him at all.

    I don't think we should touch this guy. He is an inside LB with limited impact. I also think the media would have a field day if he became a Jet.
