Think they will stay at 9.  There will be decent value there at a position of need that won’t be there later in the draft.  OLB

 

This will also be a tough draft to trade down in.  I just don’t see a player that will be there that another team will be in a must have situation for.  Very weak draft up front

I want them to trade down and accumulate some picks for this and the next draft. Having said that i do not see any compelling reason right now where a team might want to trade up to #9. So we stay and pick BPA.  But stranger things have happened!

 I don't think there is a player worth trading up for and if even they did would they be able to pay a guy taken in the top 5 with the cap mess they have now?

Trading down and getting a late 1st and mid 2nd round pick for the #9 makes more  sense for a team full of holes.

The Jets are actually in a good spot in this draft. They need an impact pass rusher more than anything else (besides a QB), and this year's crop is top-heavy with pass rushers. There should be a very good one there at #9, and they should take him.

If there are a few they like, and they can make a move down just a couple spots, that would be nice, too. But again, it takes two to tango. There needs to be a team that hungry to move up.

Stay at 9 unless Jones and Mingo are gone, then Trade down. You have to really go BPA.

My thoughts are we all have our personal favorites. But chances are at least 2 of these guys will be studs, 2 will be solid starters and 2 will probably suck. Just gotta hope they at least get 1 out of the 4 good ones....Moore, Mingo, Jones, Jordan, Werner, Ansah.

Also maybe some guys fit the system better but if I'm Idzik I'm just drafting who I think the best player is, with Rex on a short one year leash.

With a team that so desperately lacks true impact players on both side of the ball, offensive clearly moreso, you do not trade down out of the top 10 where they most likely will be selected.  Stipulation: if none of the players we graded out as a top 10 selection is left, moving down is the obvious choice as you do not want to reach.  BPA all the way.

I hate to say it but scouting is HUGE this year.  If we have a pass rusher that we rate as a stud and they are on the board then you take them.  If we rate say jones at a 20 something player then a team will value him enough to move up and get him.  Then we can trade down getting the extra picks we need and pick BPA.

 

Kinda of year you are not going to have a good player just handed to you because you have a high pick.  they are going to have to do there home work.  

 

This team needs offensive play makers more then anything.  Extra picks give you the freedom to take a few chances on WR, RB and TE in the 2nd and 3rd rounds to hit on a gem.

Which is basically the patriots philosophy...granted with a HOF QB you can afford such luxuries.

Stay at 9, draft the best player available. You can hoard picks for later rounds but this draft class isn't that great.

Is it possible DaMontre Moore turns into a Suggs situation? By that I mean failing to break a 4.8 and getting gift wrapped to Ryan at the end of the top ten.

 

it's very possible and that's another risk worth taking at 9

With the number of needs we have, it would be wise to trade down 4-5 spots a couple of times and pick up 2-3 extra picks in the mid rounds. I'd trade down n the 2nd round too. If we are targetting a player thats project a few picks before our 2nd rounder, I'd trade down from our 1st rounder, than trading up in the 2nd.

 

We really need picks this year and next and hit on most.
