In fact the reaction of the picks by the media have been slightly positive. Even Cimini gave them okay grades.
B+ for Milliner
C for Richardson
OLB is a need, but it clearly appears that they are moving Coples outside.
Tight end is tight end... There are plenty of smart people in the world of football that don't want to take a Tight End very high.
Solid 1st round of the draft. Got two guys at 9 and 13 that Draftinsider had at 7 and 13. Didnt reach. Still remains to be seen how Richardson will be used with the other linemen we have, but Im not overly concerned. Didnt reach for questionable offensive talent. Would have preferred a trade down, but you cant force that.
I get the BPA logic, I graded a C rather than a B because I am concerned about the amount of significant injuries Milliner has suffered. I don't care what the Jets medical staff say, that's an inordinate amount of injuries, scoping a knee at college suggests cartilage damage. i understand it cN be minor but often it involves chronic pain. The docs also that Dwayne Robertson would be unaffected by cartilidge damage/arthroscopic surgery.
If we were rather going defense, I would rather have Alex Okafor but hey the truth will be revealed three years from now.
And not for nothing, i HATE this mis-information:
No, Milliner will fill the spot vacated by Antonio Cromartie moving up to the #1 CB to replace Revis (which he held all last season pretty much). A slight distinction, but an important one. This kid wasnt drafted to be Revis.Dee Milliner....will now fill the spot vacated by the loss of Darrelle Revis
the funniest part for me is the 50 threads started since last night, most acting as if the draft is OVER and the Jets are DOOMED
ROUND 2 starts tonight at 6:30 PM ET
and as I see this draft --- the really good value talent on offense is pretty much ALL still on the board
People just don't get it.....
The idea is to just get the best talent possible, when rebuilding as much as we are
Who cares about plugging holes with inferior players on a team that won't contend anyway??
These picks were made for the longhaul, not 2013.....stop being so shortsighted, damn
the first rounders available for the jets at #9 and#13.were high on their draft board.sticking by the old axiom take the best players available.I love the picks.revis got on my nerves with his attitude and he might be damaged goods with his injury.lets see who the jets pick in the six rounds left.
