Crazily enough, we may go D again. Tank Carradine would be exceptional value that late, and word is the Jets love Cornelius Washington as well. Throw in guys like Collins, Cyprien . . . the Strip would lose its mind.
Offensively, the options are basically No. 2 WR types (Hunter, Woods), decent TE (Ertz) and fungible backs (Lacy, Franklin, Bernard). Or a guard (Warford).
I suppose they could go QB, but I have no doubt Geno goes to Philly at the latest. So you're looking at Barkley (ugh) and Nassib. Maybe Nassib, I guess . . .
I have a real problem mocking any olb to the jets now. After getting a admittedly a nice player in Richardson I simply fail to see how we are going to use all of these guys. In rex we trust doesn't cut it, Coples played hlaf or less of the snaps much of last year.
Take a DT of the mould of the guys we have indicating we will play 4-3 more, then take a 3-4 olb? I just don't see it, there fore we will probalby will take at least one pass rushing olb.
1) Jonathon Cyprien, Safety FIU
3) Zach Ertz, TE Stanford
3) Larry Warford, Guard Kentucky
4) Geno Smith, QB WVU
5) Ryan Nassib, QB Syracuse
First off, DEVASTATED we couldn't get Manuel. Buffalo made the correct pick there. And a big **** you to the people who thought that taking him at 13 was crazy when it's now clear that it would've taken that to get the guy.
No thanks on Warford, think his feet are just too slow.
Nassib would be horrible... Can't throw a deep ball and that doesn't work in the NFL. Would be a horrid offense to watch.
Geno I wouldn't hate. I only think he'll be a middle of the road QB but that is better than Sanchez. And with Rex, perhaps it's good enough to win a super bowl.
Idzik made it very clear that he's going to take the absolute best player on his board pretty much regardless of position. That will be the case until the later rounds.
1. Cyprien - Guy I still think was the best safety in this draft
2. Ertz - Good player, won't be great though.
3. Quinton Patton
5. Robert Woods
6. Tank Carradine
7. Margus Hunt
8. Sio Moore
All in all, there are a lot of receivers I'd be happy with so we could probably wait till later in the draft. There is ZERO at the TE position after Ertz imo so I'd really look hard at Ertz.
