My final mock draft had me trading down both the 9th and 13th picks to rack up on late 1st round and 2nd round picks. It does seem like the Jets tried to trade down with the 13th but couldnt. Nonetheless, we are all on fire for the 2 defensive players taken by the Jets but let me provide alittle offensive perspective here.
All 10 of the top 10 RB's are still available. (wasnt expecting this one lol) Notables: Lacy, Bernard
7 of the top 10 WR's are still available. Notables: Allen, Hunter, Rodgers, Williams
9 of the top 10 TE's are still available Notables: Ertz, Kelce, Stoneburner (sleeper)
9 of the top 10 QB's are still available. Notables: Nassib, Geno, Barkley
Look very closely at the above situation here. Now accept the fact that both Jordan and Austin were longshots to be at 9. John Idzik basically got us arguably the best player in the draft (Milliner) and the most versatile DT in the draft while (outside of offensive linemen) still having us in position to have our pickings at 35 of the top 40 players on the offensive side of the ball (with early picks), not to mention the solid Safeties and LB's still on the board as well.
We all need to chill and review things on Sunday.
