No trading, stuck at 9, 13, getting ****blocked by Buffalo and St. Louis, I'm just in shock still. Had 1. Jordan 2. Austin 3. Mingo on my board.
Personally, I would've went Floyd at 9, and Eifert at 13. Floyd is the pass rushing DT we've been missing. Explosive off the ball, probably best pure pass rushing DL in the draft. Eifert reminds me of Tony Gonzo. Terrific hands, and catches balls at highest point. 6'6 can play outside as well as inside. Really upset Mingo, Jordan, and Tavon all got stolen under us. Still in shock that all 3 were gone.
In all honesty, if I told you guys last week that we'd end up with Richardson and Milliner with Floyd, Eifert, Star, Jarvis, Patterson, and Vaccaro all on the board, you guys wouldn't believe me. Not happy, but will get over it, as always.
Tavon and Dion getting taken right under us is reminiscent of the Knicks getting Stephen Curry stolen from them. Word came out they loved him, and a team jumped past them.
- I'm against Milliner for the sheer reason that he's going to have immense pressure on him from day one replacing Revis.
- Milliner is not Patrick Peterson, Claiborne, Revis, or even Haden. He's more of a Quinten Jammer Antonie Winfield Corner.
- This draft tells me that Rex still has a big say in things. Our last 5 first round picks are 2 Corners and 3 Down Lineman. Rex believes that his system can provide the pass rush, as he can use his play-calling to develop one.
- Richardson is a questionable pick. I like the player, not the fit. In today's NFL you need Pass Rush and Playmakers. OLB and a playmaking Safety are still pressing needs that weren't addressed. I can't wrap my mind around our plan.
- We needed more picks in round 2. Round 2 and 3 combined will be just as good if not better than this years round 1.
Pick 2 of these guys and we have a shot to make up for a confusing round 1.

I just want all Jet fans to know that Richardson is another 5 Tech DL. He's not a nose like Ellis. More of a pass rusher than Wilk, and probably more athletic as well.
Why does the Jets have to have a D like everyone else's? Pass Rushing OLB and such. What is wrong with our D being different?
Wouldn't that make planning more difficult for the opponents?
I actually said best case scenario was Mingo/Milliner about a week ago
Cyprien and Swearinger are just as good as Vaccaro to me with a bunch of other solid safeties still available, no loss there
Don't like taking guards or "solid" tight ends that high, period....Eiffert went about 10 picks later anyway, no big loss
Jarvis Jones is the only guy I actually feel like we missed out on a little.....but the pathetic 40 time and spine condition scared me a little anyway
Richardson is better than Floyd.....Have always thought this
Star would have been fine, but Richardson has a much bigger pass-rushing upside which I value higher
Watch out for the Hunt pick!
Richardson is a more explosive /better pass rushing DT than Floyd. Yea' he isn't an ideal fit for a 3-4, good thing we don't really run a 3-4. Coples, Davis aren't 3-4 prototypes either.
I don't see how Milliner has to live up to Revis. He won't even be expected to be the #1 corner next year. Cromartie is a top 5 corner and the unquestioned #1.
Both Mingo and Austin to me are much riskier pics. What exactly is the difference between Austin and Dexter McCluster?
Buster Hyman in the third
It's a lock
Big Wood speaks.....
"Ideally, I wanted the Jets to get a Guard, and a TE with their first two picks. They way the draft unfolded, nobody expected Dee Milliner to drop to them. Let me tell you, Dee Milliner was THE best corner of the draft and he will be a lockdown corner for years to come. He may not be as good as Revis, but Cro already has taken Revis' spot, so Dee Milliner will be replacing Kyle Wilson who will move inside.
Then the DT pick, Richardson is a big body that was the best pass rushing DT of the draft. He can push the pile and guess who plays the Jets twice a year? Brady. Guess what he loves to do? He loves to step in to his throws. With Richardson joining Coples and Mohammed Wilkerson, this group will move the pocket and force Brady not to step in to his throws. These two players were the two best players at their positions."
ummmmm....good enough for me
Whether that works remains to be seen, but that seems to be the method far more than "we're running a 4-3 vs a 3-4"
agree with you k-ro. I understand the concept of BPA and i'm not doubting they were the jets BPAs according to their board. but at some point, if the talent level is really close, go with the guy that fills a hole. if you had warmack at your top 4, why wouldn't you take him over milliner?
i'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and assumed they unsuccessfully tried to trade out of 13 which would have been the correct move. how about a jarvis jones? or eifert? we basically drafted very good dline depth instead when dline depth is not even an issue! this guy is a first round pick that won't get enough snaps to warrant a first round pick because we have a glut of guys at the position. i'm dying to see the scheme they use to maximize all these d-lineman.
Richardson can chase down all those mobile QB's. Hell, he can out run many RB's.
