I have a hard time with drafting 2 guards in the first 3 rounds. I don't think our o-line is bad even if it could be upgraded. Idzik would have a tough time selling the fanbase on taking guards with 2 of his first 3 picks when the team is in dire need of playmakers on both sides of the ball.
Put together a dominant OL and it makes everyone on offense better.
See 2009 and 2010 for examples
There were no bigtime playmakers on this offense. We simply smashed teams in the mouth until they folded in the 4th quarter.
There is no need to use a ton of high draft picks to put together a dominant OL, and there's not one team in the league who has a 1st or 2nd round pick at every single OL position. That is not an accident or coincidence. Teams realize it's stupid to waste that many picks in one area. You say you don't want to tie up too much money in the CBs but you want to have all these high picks at OL, who will eventually be highly paid players if they pan out. Not smart.
Guards, especially RGs, should be taken later in the draft. There plenty of reasons why OGs are never taken in the top 10 and rarely taken in the 1st round.
This draft does not make the Jets any better in the short of long term IMO.
Wasting more top picks on interior linemen is pretty stupid when there are so many other holes on this team.
Pass rusher or playmaker please. A QB would be nice.
Makes lots of sense to me.
In Warmack and Warford you have 2 guys you can comfortably plug in from Day 1 and expect to have high quality/pro bowl caliber play at the guard position for the next 8-10 years.
People complain about the offense being so bad. When you have a draft that is weak in QBs and WRs but strong in interior O-lineman you draft BPA. Thats what this draft does.
I love this draft. With the first 3 picks you are resurrecting a dead ground game. SInce there is no franchise QB in the draft you hope that by going back to what succeeded in 2009 and 2010 (great running game with a dominant O-Line) Sanchez will show some progress.
4th - Micheal Buchannon - olber - Looks like tarzan, plays like the chimp.
5th - Michael Williams - TE - Kid blocks like an OLman and catches the ball.
6th - Chris Harper - WR - Looks and plays like Anquan Bolden physically.
7th - Jeff Tuel - QB - When u don't have 1 you find 1 where ever.

I like taking a LT/RT at 9, better value and versatility in case of injuries to the O line. Love guards who can also play center, again gives versatility in case of injury. Harper will be gone before the 6th round, but I really like him.
