  1. I see him as connected still, but I would wonder if they floated this to him to keep someone from trading up with JAX and selecting JOK. JOK makes a lot of sense if we stay with the pick.
  2. this one suggested they are all in on playmakers for Jones in a bit of desperation... either the lights go on, or they are back in the QB carousel with those 2 1st round picks next year. Problem with the strategy is that it will fail without an oline, so the probability of Jones being the odd man out and the rebuild resuming increased. Did not like the Giants moves of the last couple of years. And unless Thomas develops at LT, Gettleman is close to the door on the way out.
  3. or they knew they were taking Lance, but floated Mac Jones out there so the Jets wouldn't get second thoughts about Wilson... hard for me to believe that they made that trade to 3 and didn't suspect the Jets would take Wilson. Makes me think they were eyeing Lance all along.
  4. The real question I have is how much better the grades are for a Teven Jenkins vs. Liam Eichenberg vs. Spencer Brown... the Oline class is deep, and arguably, they could achieve similar value to bottom first in the 3rd round. It all comes down to the draft grades and where the fall-off is between tiers. The uncertainty of COVID, opt outs and medicals also makes it more of a crapshoot. At RB, I see Etienne, Harris, and Javonte Williams, and then a large fall-off at RB. I don't tend to want RBs high (as their durability is low), but we need weapons. So at 23, would I be surprised if they to
  5. Wondering what your thoughts are about the RBs in the draft. Conventional wisdom would say we wait til later in the draft, but boy, our RB group is very thin right now. I see a window in late round 1 or early round 2, based on top tackles and CBs being gone by then (and a sweet spot for o-line in round 3). All comes down to grades they have on Harris, Etienne, and Javonte Williams. The 23rd pick is a luxury pick this year for them, and a serious playmaker could be a rookie QB's best friend right now. In that light, you have an order like: Rd 1: QB and RB Rd 2: O-line vs. edge, m
  6. think a stud MLB before the end of day 2 is a must. Not talking about edge guys. Not sure Mosley is going to be that guy. And Cashman is almost out of the league with injuries. Depth is abysmal.
  7. Lots being said about what we should do after Wilson... obviously we have needs at CB, LB, OL (center/guard and right tackle), RB. Have done lots of mocks and the way the board falls, I think the premier tackles will be gone by 23 (including Jenkins), as will the premier CBs. Farley may fall, but I see him as a mid-round pick given injury and opt-out concerns. And I think the sweet spot for tackles and center/guards may be round 3 for us (perhaps top of round 2; targeting Radunz, Eichenberg, Meinerz--or even later Drew Dalman, Walker Little), although I'd prefer a playmaker there (Etien
  8. I would have agreed until the Coastal Carolina game. Usually additive pressure throws the QB off through a game, so I agree that he rarely faced sustained pressure, until that game. It is worth watching. He played great in that game and was literally harassed on every dropback. Coastal Carolina was a good team last year. Showed me his toughness in that game. I am not a Wilson homer; I'd actually prefer if we got a haul for 2 and kept Darnold. But lacking a haul at 2, I would have no problems taking him. And I'd keep Darnold and have both come to camp (assuming noone makes a real offer
  9. This is probably the best analysis of Sam that I’ve seen. His upside is still there. Particularly mid-season, you could see him slip into his bad habits with lower body mechanics and occasionally lazy throws. But the theory that he can’t read defenses is easily dispelled in this video. That’s not his problem. I’ve watched every throw of Darnold’s, and every throw of a NYJ QB over the last 40 years. He is not a bust. He was not the primary reason the Jets have sucked the last few years. If we can get a haul for the 2nd pick, it is tempting to go that direction and actually build a c
  10. The same way Drew Brees didn’t? I am not a Wilson homer but his quick release suggests otherwise.
  11. To clarify, I was talking about selecting Wilson, AND keeping Darnold as a bridge. Hedges your bets, and creates a competition in the QB room, with the anticipation going in that Darnold is the bridge to Wilson. Unless the Jets are wowed by an offer for Darnold, I prefer this solution. Would rather trade the difference between a 3rd round pick (if we were lucky to receive in a trade) and the comp pick for darnold, to let that competition unfold.
  12. This would be an argument to keep both on the roster and kick the can down the road a bit. Have Darnold be the bridge. And if it clicks in the new system, that's a wonderful problem to have.
  13. I would not rule out a team like Pittsburgh or New Orleans building for the future and offering a low 2nd. There may be a couple of surprise teams in here. Think Carolina, Denver, and Philly are the obvious ones (trade-down in round 1 or second round pick). But a couple of the upper echelon teams may be lurking in the shadows.
  14. Understand the loss of the pick, but I also think selling low doesn’t make sense either. And there remains a distinct possibility of him improving on the Jets and then being moved for a higher pick in season (when a QB1 goes down), than him walking for nothing. I think it’s worth the difference between a third/4th round pick in a trade and a 5th-6th round comp if he leaves, to solidify the QB room, and take the chance that a 24 year old QB finds it under this new coaching staff. For other skill positions, maybe you get what you can get... but there is a premium on QBs in the league. THat’s
