Me Personally, I would continue to take the best Player available on my board until the 4th round at which point i would look at Bray and Dysert if either were still around.
Yea, Idzik is telling everyone what the Jets are doing. Just like they were trading up to 3 last night, and if these so called experts know what the Jets are doing why were they so surprised when we took Richardson!
Because you don't draft for need unless it's the best player on the board.
no trading up, Mr Idzik
Can they trade one of next years picks (compensatory) to move up? Or Tebow! Need to keep these picks today. Who is the tougher Competitor? Nassib, Smith or Sanchez? Who steps up when the money is on the line?
I think Nassib goes to Jax and Geno is going to Philly. Philly really wanted Manuel and while Geno isn't Manuel, he the most mobile guy left for this round.
In reality, it doesn't even matter. The offense has been neglected for so long, it will take at least 3 more drafts to rebuild it. By then, Geno or whoever will just be Mark Sanchez the Buttfumbler II.
At this point, go get geno. We dont have a good qb on the roster. Get him and hand him the reigns tonight. Cut sanchez and garrard can tutor the young fellow.
Its time for another qb. And with the rookie scale, we wont be saddled with him like we are sanchez. Hell we can draft another qb next year if he doesnt work out. Like the panthers did with Clausen/Newton.
Go get em izzy!
The New York Jets have made calls to multiple teams Friday to try to move up from the 39th overall pick, seventh in the second round, to draft a quarterback, league sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The Jets used both of their first-round picks on defense, taking cornerback Dee Milliner from Alabama ninth overall and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson four picks later.
New York debated taking West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith at No. 13 before settling on Richardson. Smith was widely considered to be a first-round pick.
Smith, Matt Barkley and Ryan Nassib are quarterbacks expected to be selected early in the second round.
Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, top scout Terry Bradway and an area scout dined with Smith last month on the eve of his pro day.
Mornhinweg was "raving" about Smith upon returning to the Jets' facility, according to a source.
On Wednesday, Smith told reporters, "There's a level of interest there," referring to the Jets. He also visited the Jets' facility, where he spent time with Mornhinweg, Rex Ryan and quarterbacks coach David Lee.
"I had a great visit," Smith said. "All those guys were great -- Coach Lee, Coach Mornhinweg. It was really great sitting down with those guys. I enjoyed it. We'll see what happens."
Smith was asked how he would handle the intense scrutiny of playing quarterback in New York.
"It depends on the way you look at it. You can look at it as a negative, or you can look at it as a positive," he said. "New York is a great place to market -- a great city once you start winning games and get things rolling.
You look at Eli [Manning], even Broadway Joe. He's still a legend around here."
Mornhinweg also dined with Nassib at his pro day. The Jets have communicated with Nassib as recently as this week.
Nassib/Smith as a mid-high 2nd round pick is awesome value... I would have no problems with this. The fact that it gives Sanchez legitimate competition is reason enough to do it.
Ugh. I really, really hope we don't move up for one of these bum QBs.
If there's one consensus in this draft it's that this crop of QBs flat out sucks and the teams that are taking them are the dumb ones.
