  1. Jalin Marshall

    Tough to be Landry from a hands standpoint and I think Marshall is new to the position...but this is a good call. Movement skills, quick, not that fast in a straight line but well built and won't get knocked off anything. I like it. Nice.
  2. The Jack-Lee comparison is an interesting one. Was thinking today, obviously you have no idea on the medical and didn't know he'd be there at the time or how things would change but...pending the ripple effect from trading down, the Jets could have in theory made that trade with the Cowboys and gotten Jack at 34 instead of Lee and had an extra third round pick to play with.
  3. He tore his ACL in the middle of December. What is there to predict?
  4. Yeah, the hand size is pretty different between the two though. Peake's are 9 1/4", not too bad. For comparison, Treadwell's hands are 9 1/2". Anderson's hands are apparently 8 3/8". Reasonably small. Little bigger than Will Fuller (8 1/4") who had a lot of questions on his hands. Ultimately we're kind of quibbling but it's also almost a full inch of difference. Rotoworld was the outlet that had mentioned the potential move to DB. I'm not saying he can't play receiver, just was passing that info along.
  5. I think Peake has an opportunity to carve out play time. Not much depth at receiver. And an awesome chance to learn from guys like Marshall and Decker. He and Jenkins were my favorite picks in the draft. Also stumbled across some awesome physical play by him. If you haven't seen it, find the sequence of two plays between him and Artie Burns (I think Lance Zierlein posted it on twitter and it was linked to on another site). Awesome. Anderson is interesting. Height, wheels, and a little production. I like guys coming out of that Temple program. Knocks would be lack of bulk (surprisingly key for receivers) and small hands. Apparently so small they might consider moving him to DB. Will be interesting to see if drops are an issue in camp. The other two UDFA's are intriguing too. Jalin Marshall apparently has some wiggle/return ability and Quenton Bundrage is a nice height-weight-speed-athleticism guy who apparently caused an absurd amount of missed tackles. Coming off a knee injury so he was getting his athleticism back last year. Could be a sleeper. I think at least one UDFA makes the team. And (I say this as an Enunwa fan) there's a lot of room for guys to earn snaps behind Marshall and Decker. Very unsettled depth chart, particularly if Smith misses the year with that ACL injury.
  6. If Fitz comes back and Genodoesn'tget traded/cut I imaginePetty (or maybe Hackenberg)is going to have a "shoulder injury" and get put on IR sometime in late August. The old Erik Ainge trick.
  7. I think it's somewhat doable to squeeze under the cap. The rough estimate on Over the Cap was like $5.4m to sign rookies based on a pick in every round - but that gets offset by the guys they're replacing on the top 51 - the bottom of whom are probably around $450k each. So the net cost is roughly$2.2m if I'm doing the math right which they should be able to fit in the $3.3m of space. Barely. Signing Fitzpatrick is another matter.
  8. Good stuff. Some thoughts (not quibbling). I bet Smith is at least IR designated for return if not IR all year and they carry another WR - Thompkins or the top UDFA. Would say they carry 5 but they use them so much could extend it. Maybe Jalin Marshall pushes for a roster spot as a punt return guy although I have no idea who returns kicks - that's basically a straight up speed thing. Wonder if there's a point to carrying 3 TE's if they're not really going to use them. Saxton bumped up off the PS a little last year too right? Bet he and Sudfeld could push Bostick, could come down to specials. Obviously they don't care at all about the position as they completely ignored it. Couple draftable guys were UDFA's, figure with how weak that position is they could have at least gotten a quality guy there. If they're able to re-sign Fitz and can't trade Geno for a bag of chips, I wonder if they try to find some kind of a medical issue with Petty and just IR stash him. My dude Ben Ijalana never has gotten on the field but I bet he makes it tough for the team to cut him. Bet Macc would love to see enough from Qvale to cut Breno and then Ijalana could make himself worth keeping. The battle for the backup OLB spots are going to be interesting. I'd be surprised to see Reilly get cut. He's gotten play time, that experience should have value on a really really young OLB group and I've always thought he was pretty solid. McDougle getting cut would be a minor surprise but it's going to be a numbers game at that position. Wonder if they try to trade Milliner away for a conditional lateround pick - probably doesn't open up enough cap space to justify it. Okoye feels like a probablepractice squad project if he has any eligibility.
  9. 2016 DRAFT: Day 3 Thread

    Click the link I posted in the response to you. It's about being over a certain salary level - a million are so.Those guys are so they reportedly will cancel them out. We can always revisit this when it happens. I'll gladly eat crow and be happy to have the picks. But my understanding is that the 3 signed qualifying UFA's cancel with the 3 lost qualifying UFA's despite the difference in salary. Which, again, is why I wasn't happy with how the offseason went. Because if that understanding is correctnot only did Forte, McLendon, and Jenkins cost the Jets cap space, they also cost them a future 4, 5, and 6. Also even if not, Forte would more than cancel out Davis which would mean 2 picks. But my understanding is, as things currently stand, it's 0.
  10. 2016 DRAFT: Day 3 Thread

    Pretty sure I'm not wrong. You don't just get comp picks for losing guys. Those three qualifying UFA's the Jets lostare cancelled out by the signings ofForte, McLendon, and Jenkins. Believe there's a chance they get a late compensatory pick based on the salary difference, and they would get a compensatory pick if they lose another qualifying UFA. But as things stand right now they are projected to get 0 compensatory picks next year. Certainly not three.
  11. 2016 DRAFT: Day 3 Thread

    Pretty sure this is not true. Jets as it stands today are projected to have no comp picks, maybe a late one. Another reason I was upset about this offseason.
  12. 2016 DRAFT: Day 3 Thread

    I feel like this is being viewed as a rebuilding on the fly year. And I don't think it's going to go especially well. Hopefully Burris can push for a starting spot.
  13. 2016 DRAFT: Day 3 Thread

    I expect to trade back (if possible) and go offensive line. Couple of guys on the board (Haeg and Benenoch) that Pauline noted yesterday. Billings could make a little sense too and that would be solid. Receiver to push Enunwa and Thompkins too. Think there's enough possible directions to go in that it's useful to move down if you can find someone who wants to come up, but that's presumably the hard part. Would be a long way to wait from the 4th till the 7th. Suspect they wanted to move down in the 3rd but loved Jenkins.
  14. Almost two full years younger than Floyd and arguablymore productive, just doesn't look as good in shorts. Has the bulk and length Bowles is looking for. This team had a massive hole at OLB across from Mauldin. Jenkins is a plug and play guy. This is better than I expected in the third round by a mile. Pretend we took him in the second and Hackenberg in the third and I feel a little better about things.
  15. I'm cool with it. There's your starting OLB across from Lorenzo Mauldin. Wouldn't have blinked with him in the second.
