FWIW, the ESPN guys love it, too. At this point, the draft is a total crapshoot. Relying on web sites that project guys in any round after about the 3rd is useless as they are all so closely matched in talent.
So much depends on team needs, system, etc. Idzik clearly is looking to add depth and competition all across the roster. We'll surely see another OL or two taken, too.
Yes this is the time when you take guys that are special in some areas, but lacking in others.
It's stupid to take a guy that is average in all areas.
Wait... I thought I posted a picture of Laverneous Coles... Are you telling me that Oprah was a wide receiver for the Jets or does she just look remarkably similar to Laverneous Coles? What does that say about Chad Pennington? Should we be asking Herm Edwards whether this a result of affirmative action?
Looking ahead, it's time for either some OL beef or an OLB.
Yankey still there. So is Antonio Richardson. Odd they dropped this far unless there are flags we haven't heard about.
Not sure if there are OLB prospects I like, but Yawin Smallwood at ILB might be a nice grab.
What I love about taking 2 receivers back to back .. is this will push Hill & Ford to bust their a$$es for a roster spot mainly Hill. If Hill is to take that next step the time is now with no exception cause he no longer has that level of comfort at a position with no depth and knowing a team moved up to get him in rd 2. This team just showed they are not waiting around for Hill or any receiver to get their ish together. My guess ... Nelson & Hill have been put on notice ... one of them is in serious danger of losing their roster spot and will have to compete. My guess is one of the rookies will beat each other out and one of the other guys will do the same. I can't see us going into the season with 6 receivers while having a FB and 3 TE's on the roster. If I had to place a bet .. I'd say Nelson wins out although I think the Jets brass is praying Hill takes a huge leap and doesn't even make it close.
Not going to lie... wish we traded up in Rd 2. With hindsight being 20/20, if we gave up our 3rd and both of these 4's to move up to late in the second and took Allen Robinson... i wouldn't have been mad. Pryor/Amaro/Robinson would've been a perfect haul. I'd rather have the sure thing, speed/fast/productive receiver in Robinson than these unknown projects.
