I dont think they will go QB earlier than rd 3.
best available freak and yes it could be a OLB or CB. dont everyone all panic if it happens.
the WR argument is interesting and i definitely see the need; but the value might not line up. i.e. if the big names are gone, Idzik isn't going to reach
as for TE in rd 1 this has been a historically terrible pick for this franchise: Keller, Becht, Brady, Mitchell etc. I don't know why the Jets can't draft a TE in rd 1 but they can't. those who ignore the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them.
It's not about panic, it's about the truth that nobody likes to admit. This BAP in the draft is really dumb logic. Nobody knows who the best players are and everybody has a different opinion. Many times the top 5 picks are a crap shoot, much less the rest of the draft. It's one thing to take a guy who should go in the 2nd round and take him first, it's another to take a Defensive player because he's the so called BAP at 18, but there was some TE or WR who might only be the BAP at 26. A team who does that is stupid.
The Jets offense stinks. It's stunk for years. They have no playmakers. None. No WR who can make plays. No TEs who can make plays. No RBs who can make plays. And their QB is still an unknown. Again, what happens if in round 1, 2, 3 the BAP at their spot is defensive players. They should just keep picking defense and forget about the offense because their board says so? At that point you'd have to assume this entire organization is filled with idiots.
Yes, they have needs on defense, but at the end of the day, the Jets can draft another freaking CB and make that maybe 4 First round CBs on the roster, and draft no offensive players that make a difference. Then Rex will impress people and the Jets will finish 8-8. Fans will be excited because hey, "they had no talent on offense." Wait till next year when they get some weapons on offense. Except hey, BAP again, is defense in the draft. And the crap continues.
