I for one am happy.There are still a lot of talented receivers left, Pryor was the BPA at 18 and the Jets needed a safety as much as they needed a CB or WR, maybe even more. I think Pryor may be the next Earl Thomas or Ed Reed. Anyway, here's a guy that can allow Rex to do a corner or S blitz and not have to worry about the other teams receivers getting wide open, and here's a guy that other teams will not want to throw to. Idzik still needs a CB, but right now, he's  gotta get a WR

Dude, seriously, it's easier to pick up a good WR during training than it is to find a good S. It was the right pick

I'm happy with the pick. Fills a need and didn't trade up.

When Rex signed his extension, we had to know the first round defenders were going to keep coming. That said, I like the pick.

Really? When has that ever worked? At this point the Jets might as well punt on 2nd down.

I know. Jets failed to upgrade the WR spot, RB spot and the QB spot this off season. Oh wait, they picked the best FAs at all those spots. Never mind.

Solid, uninteresting pick, very happy with the pick. I'm surprised they went safety considering rex's history with safeties. But maybe he enjoyed having laron landry and wanted that back

over the years the value of the safety position has changed. It used to be a luxury pick like TE. now there were 4 in the round (so far) 

 

the Cardinals at 20 was interesting they traded down and took Deone Buchanon, another SS type which seems like a pouty panic move if the player you really wanted was taken a pick or two before... 

 

When it's all said and done we can talk about the value of a safety vs the value of a WR but when we look back on it, it could be really good. The Jets took the first safety out of four first rounders. He's also a perfect fit for what Rex's defense wants out of a safety. 

 

by the way the Jets safeties are terrible as a group. Antonio Allen had his moments but the less said about the rest of em, the better. It was a position of dire need. Dire.
 
Others have talked about the Jets lack of turnovers that's a valid point. Prior to tonight, they didn't have any guys who separate the carrier from the ball. 
 

Certainly, there were much worse picks made tonight. and they have 11 more ...

I didn't love the pick, and I still don't. But I do understand why they made it for a number of reasons. And it was far better than taking a corner. Hopefully it works out.
