    John Idzik came from a franchise that he was part of as they built it and that just won a Superbowl Championship... SFTU!!!! What the hell do you naysayers know? Let this man do his job, which he's already showing he knows how to do. GEEZ!

    No traded down for high round picks the next year. There were times they had 4 wend round picks.

    Uuuuuh... If I'm not mistaken, don't teams go into training camp with around 90 players?!

    It's not like our roster is stacked with beasts and only limited spots. WTF

    The Seattle - Superbowl Champion - Seahawks, built their team with rounds 3-6, most who have turned out to be quality & solid starters.

    Trade up to draft few guys, guys who have bigger names in the draft and risk the draft ratio of 1 of every 3 draftees become viable starters in the NFL (as per ESPN pundits, but I find no other stat on this).

    Jets just drafted a bunch of players who have the potential to help this team win. Why not trade all our picks and draft Clowney? He'll win us 16 games alone, right?
    Great post and thank you.

    In addition, people are also making it sound like 1) Lee would be a lock to be a stud and Amaro def. won't be a better player and 2) They could have traded up for a 4th or 5th. We might not have - what if it required a 3rd? Which is likely what it was going to take to trade up for Lee and 3) What if they players they ended up getting are the ones they really wanted - you heard Rex on the McDoogle pick tell him they were just waiting hoping he would drop to them.

    exactly. You can argue that you don't necessarily like the picks as a function of scouting - but Idzik has clearly showed professional and the ability to run an NFL franchise in a way that be trusted. This team will not make stupid, rash moves but work in a well thought-out process going into every decision.

    How do you know it didn't occur? Maybe they tried but couldn't find a trade partner. We've no idea what went on during the day.
