  1. If Rex thinks that he can be a scary elephant backer, I believe him. Even if he cannot cover well immediately, which we do not know because he was never asked to really do that at SMU, despite having some workout numbers that suggest he may be able to. Margus Hunt has every single tool you would want in a pass rusher except experience. We can mold this guy into anything. Also, if we do intend on playing more 4-3 this year to mask our linebackers, having Hunt on the other side of Coples, with Wilkerson moved inside, is very formidable. I know DL is not really an area where we need to spend an early pick, but there is a good chance that he is the best player available at our second round spot...I would be excited about Margus Hunt.
  2. This is a very solid RB draft class. There are at least 6-7 RBs that will be taken between rounds 2-4 that can really help bolster our running game. Right now my RB rankings are: Bernard, Lacy, Franklin, Michael, Bell, Davis.
  3. We will be better for losing him. We probably get a decent comp pick for him. Our running game will also remain at least the same without him by simply spreading his carries out to Powell, McKnight, and likely drafted RB. Shonn Greene was an interesting thumper when he first came in the league, but the explosive runs dried up quickly and his failure to break tackles as a power runner was alarming at best. He was just another guy Rex pimped to try and raise morale.
  4. If we are tanking for anything we are tanking for Teddy Bridgewater. He is going to be the best QB in next year's draft. If you are a team without a QB, us, you cannot pass on a QB in a tank year. We can try and improve the rest of the roster as best we can via the draft, but until we square away the QB position it is all window dressing.
  5. I don't know how I am overstating how bad they are going to be. Our schedule should be at least as difficult as this year, probably harder, and our roster is not going to be as good. Unless you are expecting huge contributions from a ton of rookies, probably unrealistic, I do not see how you can think this team will be more talented than last year. We do not have any receivers under contract that scare anyone, and Holmes may be gone. We have no safeties under contract that have proven anything at this level. We do not have any OLB under contract. We have no Guards under contract except Ducasse. We have no cap space to fill this holes. And that says nothing about our QB situation, which is unarguably one of the worst in the sport. The Pats will be good again, the Dolphins will be better than last year, and the Bills will be the Bills. We are not winning more than 6 games next year, and if that is the case we might as well win 3 or 4 and get our QB of the future.
  6. Darrelle Revis should be a Jet for life. He should take a contract that pays him the highest salary of any CB in the league for 4 years at mostly guaranteed money. His leverage with over the Jets is not nearly as strong as it has been in the past. He is coming off a major injury, and the secondary did not completely disintegrate without him last year. If the Jets aren't going to give him the $16 million per that he wants, which we won't, no one else is going to either. His asking price is going to have to come down if he plans on playing this season. 4 years at $12.5, mostly guaranteed will get a deal done tomorrow, and it is more than reasonable for both sides.
  7. We are tanking next year anyway, who really cares? This is more about Teddy Bridgewater than anything else.
  8. If Tom Brady is willing to take a less than market value deal, Revis should drop this vanity project of his. This isn't entirely apples and oranges when Revis is arguing that his play transcends the pay rate of his position and directly correlates his value on defense to a QB on offense; which is of course ridiculous. Revis should come back to the Jets and take their, I'm sure more than reasonable, offer. If Revis is willing to be the highest paid CB in the league for the next 4 years with mostly guaranteed money, we have a deal tomorrow. This $16 million stuff is what is driving all of the madness, and surely created the trade posturing by the Jets. Revis wants to be paid this offseason, so he has insurance against injury this coming year, and the Jets want to be able to put together a semi-responsible cap situation once again. Revis and Cromartie can both fit on this team if we trim the right kind of fat and hit in the draft. Next year is not a playoff year, but if we are able to land a QB in the next 2 years with a rebuilt roster we can be good again with Revis in his prime.
  9. I am pretty positive that the Eagles are going to keep their pick at 4 and draft an OT. The proposal in this thread is not the worst I have seen for Revis, but doesn't really satisfy the Eagles needs at this point. They need help on the O-Line or their entire season is going to crumble once again.
  10. I like the idea of a trade down, but I don't know how much interest we will be able to generate at 9. Most teams that try to trade back into the top 10 are looking for a QB, and I don't see one that a team would cherish enough to pull the trigger on a deal. Another 2nd rounder sounds great, but we are going to be in a spot where a terrific player is on the board when we pick...
  11. Osi has been terrifyingly overrated for years. Color me uninspired with the idea of turning a 10 year 4-3 DE into a 3-4 OLB, especially when you consider that he isn't going to make nearly what he wants...
  12. I don't remember ever watching an OG have as much of an impact on an offense as Warmack had for this Alabama team. He was by far the best player on the field in BCS National Championship game. We are rebuilding next year anyway. Fixing the offensive line needs to be done no matter who the QB is. This is our best shot at having a real game changing OL in the near future when you consider our cap situation, and all the resources we will need to allocate to skill position guys...
  13. To get his awful cap number off the books. If we somehow unloaded Harris and Revis, we would be looking at the mother load of cap space; more holes to fill though...
  14. Thanks man! More important than who we take in the first round, we cannot afford to miss on this pick. Warmack is the most dominating Guard I have ever evaluated. Watching the BCS National Championship game was rather hilarious for me, even as a Notre Dame fan, watching Warmack destroy the ND interior. He was by the far the best player on either in team in that game.
  15. I like Bernard a lot, but I do not want to spend a premium pick in this draft on a RB. I think we can get a guy like Ray Graham in the 4th who can bring a lot of what we need from a WCO RB.
  16. Even more videos: 5) Tyrann Mathieu, DB, LSU 6) Mallaciah Goodman, DE, Clemson
  17. More videos: 3) Alex Okafor, OLB, Texas 4) Ray Graham, RB, Pitt
  18. 1) Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama -Pure and simply, he is the safest pick in the draft, and barring injury, he will be an All-Pro caliber OG for a long time. The O-Line last year played terrible, again, and both of our starting Guards are free agents. Need and talent come together nicely here. Worry about the value aspect of drafting a Guard in the top 10 later, when you know a guy is going to be great, take him. 2) Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford -In my eyes the best TE in this draft. He is a terrific pass catcher with all the measurables you want. He was highly productive in college and played in a pro-style offense. With our cap situation in flux, it is becoming more and more likely that Dustin Keller will not be back. If we are lucky enough to have Ertz on the board here, we should take him. 3)Alex Okafor, OLB/DE, Texas -A very solid all around player at Texas with solid measureables and production. He is a gamer who makes the most of his talent. With terrific play recognition skills he seems to always be around the ball, and when gets there he usually makes the play. He is a true 3 down OLB, and while some may want us to go and get an elite pass rusher with an early pick, Okafor is more than capable of starting at OLB from day one and bring stability to the position. 4) Ray Graham, RB, Pittsburgh -A dynamic, shifty runner from Pitt who has remained productive throughout his college career despite injury. Graham tore his ACL in 2011, which clearly hindered his development, but now two years removed from surgery a lot his explosiveness has returned and more is likely on the way. He will fall in the draft due to injury concerns and his small stature, but his make-you-miss and pass catching abilities make him ideal in our new WCO scheme. 5) Tyrann Mathieu, DB, LSU -A highly controversial draft prospect. When Mathieu played at LSU, before the numerous suspensions and drug rehab stays, he was one the single most exciting defensive players in the country. While he is not going to be a lock-down cover guy, Mathieu is a playmaker. Probably the most adept ball stripper of any defensive back I've seen since Ed Reed left Miami, when the game is on the line he seems to always be the guy making the big play. Mathieu did not play college football this past season, and there are more than a few things that need checking into off-the-field, but Mathieu was a Heisman trophy finalist, All American, and Bednarik award winner during his time in Baton Rouge. There is a chance that he could be well off the board by now, but it would appear that many teams will be scared off by his smallish stature and off the field concerns. An potential impact player in the 5th round makes Mathieu a potential steal here, or he could simply flop out of the league in 2 years; much of this will be his own doing. 6) Malliciah Goodman, DE, Clemson -Goodman was a top recruit coming out of High School, and while most consider his college career to be a great disappointment in terms of production, there is still upside here. There are work ethic issues that may need to be examined, but Goodman is a solid all around DE who plays the run well. He came on really strong at the end of the season and was nearly unblockable in his final collegiate game against LSU. With motivation (money anyone?), he could very well end up being a late bloomer who is a better NFL player than College player. 7) Aaron Mellette, WR, Elon -A small school WR with big time production. Mellette leaves Elon with over 300 catches, 4,200 yards, and 42 TDs. He has a large 6-3 frame and plays the ball well in the air. He is a smooth athlete, despite not being a burner, knows how to get open and make a play. He could be a solid developmental guy for us if we bring him along correctly.
  19. If Seattle is interested, that is where he should go. Let's start this at Browner, a 1, and a conditional 3 in 2014.
  20. Can't argue that we will be good next year, but Evan Silva is one of the biggest a$$holes going.
  21. I like Glennon the best out this year's QB draft class. I hate that Cimini wrote this though...
  22. Glennon will fill out some as he gets older. I like the way he throws the ball. Solid ball placement, terrific spin, stands tall in the pocket. His development was stunted by NC State's lack of weapons, but I think this is a guy who can develop into a very good NFL QB.
  23. I am still on this bandwagon. I like his size and arm talent. He seems to go through his progressions well. His receivers on NC State were terrible, I think if you give this guy NFL caliber receivers he will develop nicely.
