With the 29th pick in the 2010 draft, John Idzik Jr. selects ???
We still have 25 days to the draft and I am sick of the FA watch so here goes...
With the 29th pick in the 2010 draft Tanny and the Jets selected Kyle Wilson
Draft day reviews were good in the honeymoon of T-Rex; ”The rich get richer. Go ahead and try and throw against their secondary. He will be the nickel corner with Revis and Cromartie. They will blitz even more.”
Seemed to fill a need at CB with Cro learning the system and a pending Revis holdout, but he did not seem like the player they wanted after Rex proclaimed that his brother (then with the Browns) liked Wilson at 7 (smoke screen?)
Kyle Wilson was the 4th CB taken after; Joe Haden, Kareem Jackson, and Devin McCourty
and the rest of the 2010 draft “haul” is history
So the question is what would Idzik have done, who was BPA at 29?
Kyle Wilson, Taylor Mays, Sergio Kindle, What say you?
It was a crappy first round that year. This myth that Wilson was somehow a bad pick is pretty hysterical.
Superstar? No, but not bad considering the other guys that went around there.
Agree, Wilson is a decent NFL player and I have included the players drafted around him:
25 Denver Broncos Tim Tebow QB
26 Arizona Cardinals Dan Williams DT
27 New England Patriots* Devin McCourty† CB
28 Miami Dolphins Jared Odrick DT
29 New York Jets Kyle Wilson CB
30 Detroit Lions Jahvid Best RB
31 Indianapolis Colts Jerry Hughes DE
32 New Orleans Saints Patrick Robinson CB
33 St. Louis Rams Rodger Saffold OT
34 Minnesota Vikings Chris Cook CB
35 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Brian Price DT
36 Kansas City Chiefs Dexter McCluster† RB
37 Philadelphia Eagles Nate Allen S
38 Cleveland Browns T. J. Ward† S
39 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Arrelious Benn WR
40 Miami Dolphins Koa Misi DE
41 Buffalo Bills Torell Troup DT
42 New England Patriots* Rob Gronkowski† TE
43 Baltimore Ravens Sergio Kindle DE
44 Oakland Raiders Lamarr Houston DE
45 Denver Broncos Zane Beadles† OT
T-Rex was a democracy, Idzik appears to be in charge now so who does he pick?
I am not sure that draft would have been all that much better. I dont think we would have taken Vlad as early as we did though that was Tanny panicking IMO because OL where flying off the board. Maybe Alex Carrington, LaFell, or Pat Angerer who would have been BPA. That year we wouldnt have traded up for McKnight IMO. Connor I think was Rex's call. What would have made that draft better is pretty much what we could have done with 1 or 2 more late round picks. Imagine Greg Hardy in the 5TH!
