If we did end up with the #1 pick

What would you do?

  1. 1. What would you do?

    • No trading up, because there are plenty of QBs in this class. But DO take a QB at #1 if we end up with that pick, and thereby turn down RGIII-trade type compensation.
      24
    • "Don't trade up" means no QB prospect is worth all that. If we get an RGIII-trade type of offer, definitely trade down to ~#6-10-ish.

Omg. Let’s say it all for group therapy “we Aren’t and we’re never getting the 1 pick” The bears and 49ers were worse then us before we even kicked off and now throw the giants in the mix...

The point, really, is whether it's Darnold or somebody else, the Jets are wasting away on a couple extra wins, getting the best QB prospect.

"Wasting away"

Your premise is flawed.  NFL teams do not tank, no matter what fans think.

The Jets are doing what all teams do, trying to win games.

Tanking on purpose is fan talk.  Not real talk.

And also, that anyone of our opinions on any QB prospect on October 13th, is a waste of breath. Maybe Darnold slides or stays another year. Yes, The conversation is futile. It has nothing to do with respecting people's opinions 

Yes, it is futile.  And pointless.  The draft will come when it comes, it's hard to see the point in all this angst before then.

the bitch of the draft, of course, is you don't know what anybody is "worth" until 3 years after the draft

I tried to run a "foundation" (QB,Edge,LT) draft using those mock draft simulators last year, and they all sucked according to the experts.  Little did I know Watson was the pick at 6...

So in the end, since you don't know what any player is going to turn out to be, you just have to have a plan to get a QB on a cheap rookie deal and build around him

No team is really complete anymore, and any team paying a QB $20 million isn't even close to complete

The best predictor or Superbowl success is usually passer rating differential

Get the QB, rush the QB, protect the QB

that should be Big Mac attacks obsession

I would even be ok with getting super legit Edge rusher. We haven't has one since Abraham, which is actually worse than the QB situation

Just please let our reward for this season be something exciting to watch !!!!

The going rate to move up for a consensus #1 overall talent QB prospect is still too low. This is an economically factual thing. As framed the prompt seems to be more about feelings.

Personally I don’t have a problem trading a couple #1s to move up if the prospect is all that. I kind of expected this to turn into a “is the #1 pick worth multiple #1 picks or not” thread, even though it was clearly directed just at those who would not give up a couple of #1s to trade up in the first place. No big deal. I just wanted to see if there was any consistency with the “nope, not worth it” crowd.

IMO if we’ve scouted the QB right (lol), and he’s really worth the #1 pick (instead of just being the best of a trash QB draft class), he’s more likely to have at least an above-average career with a good 10-12 year span playing in his prime. That’s more than enough time to not look back with regret at the extra high picks burned way back when. Especially if we’re drafting ILBs, safeties, and redundant DE-DTs with those 1st round picks (even high 1st round picks) anyway.

Not to mention, a QB drafted that high is geting at least 2 years’ worth of chances. By the time it’s clear beyond any doubt that he isn’t all that, if he does end up being a bust, we’re back to having our full stock of 1st round picks and a GM can then take a shot on another high-pick QB prospect without much controversy. While the extra picks you lost only compounded the initial whiff, they weren’t making a total bust QB into a SB champ either.

Most of this board is of the losing gambler mentality. The draft is a crapshoot so just do whatever because it doesn't matter all that much. You know what happens to that guy? His lunch gets eaten by the guy who understands that the variance makes fighting for every percentage point more rather than less important.

So the level zero thinking is you got this quarterback at 1 and this other quarterback at 12 and they're pretty much the same thing, right, but you get all this other stuff with the second-choice guy so that's that. The allure of this is of course that it's easy. You don't have to get into bothersome stuff like your chances of hitting at 1 as opposed to at 12 and what the correct price actually is for accepting those decreased odds.

Ah.  The Quinton Coples Theory.  Bruce Irvin and Quinton Coples are the same player, so as long as we get one, who cares. The Seahawks traded up for Irvin and the Jets wet themselves instead of taking the Steelers picks for Decastro.  Two edge guys with the biggest bust potential.  We could have guessed which one was going to be better.

Didn't Belichick tell Dimitroff that Julio Jones and Jonathan Baldwin were essentially the same player?

Should have taken the obvious pick of Melvin Ingram...but no, Rex had to get cute. Hate this team.
