    My hunch right now is that we're going DL at #4 (and I think it will be someone other than Thibs, even though I'm guessing he'll be available) and we're going to trade back from #10.

    I still hope we take a TE in this draft, despite signing 2 of them.  Reading some very positive things about this TE draft class.  Hopefully we get the right one.

    Btw, it's going to be painful to see some names that I think would really help this franchise go to some other teams. Obviously we can't draft 'em all.  

    I too want a TE draft pick ... like with so many other positions we have to draft and develop our own so as not to become reliant on short term FA fixes every year. Drafting has to lay the foundation for many years to come, not just the 2022 season.

    As things stand, WR is an essential, TE and RB should definitely be in the mix but don't need to be forced, OL depth (a future OT especially) is a must.

    In that scenario, would the Jets go WR in Round 2, or even later?  Or hell, not at all?

    Who would you see the Jets getting at WR then, because Davis/Moore/Berrios/Mims doesn't feel like it's adequate without another top-end piece.

    There's also the longer term view to consider. I keep reading people saying here that rookie WRs can take a year or two to develop - but if we never draft and develop them we'll be saying the same thing every year and never improving.

    2022 is not our "make or break" year; we need to be looking at it as a year of progress towards the longer term goal. If we neglect WR in the draft then we're banking on Moore being fantastic AND making some sort of big trade / FA signing next offseason. 

    IMHO we need to draft a real prospect this year - even if we sign a FA on a 1-2 year sort of deal. If we don't develop our own we'll be constantly looking for other teams cast offs ... and we've seen how sparse those are this year.

    No, because we've brought in Whitehead, Uzomah, Tomlinson and Reed as FAs - we still have more qualifying FA gains than qualifying FA losses, so no comp pick. We'd need to lose 2 more qualifying FAs (without signing any other UFAs from other teams). Unlikely, but maybe someone decides they love Cole and Crowder?

    I imagine Cole and Crowder could be the sort of guys who get signed on one year deals after the point where FA signings no longer affect comp picks.

    If you think for one minute I won't be saying "That WR is covered in Sauce" you have seriously underestimated my maturity.

    He had Sauce all over him on that play ...

    Sauce Island???

    So long as no-one burns the Sauce!! :D

    Meh- disappeared in the playoffs and not a big threat in the regular season either.  Maybe better in our system?

    He was injured in Q1 of the AFCCG, ruled out of the game and was doubtful to even play in the Superbowl.

    CJ Uzomah in the 2021 regular season - 49 catches, 493 yards, 5 TDs.

    CJ Uzomah in the 2021 playoffs - 15 catches, 146 yards and a TD. (Most of this was in 2 games).

    For comparison ...

    Ryan Griffin in the 2021 regular season - 27 catches, 261 yards and a 2 TDs.

    Last year, we thought there was going to be this second wave of players made available by teams in cap hell. It never came. Teams find a way to restructure contracts. Salary cap hell seems to be a myth.

    It may not be "hell" but some teams do have to part with players for salary reasons. Take Dallas for example ... traded Cooper for a 5th just to offload his contract. At one point their big day 1 move in FA was they extended their long snapper on a one-year vet minimum deal. :D

    this is what I was taking about,
    PFF called it right on this one. he came in here and was terrible 

    “Signing a player coming off a career year is always dangerous — doubly so when the plan is to transplant him into a significantly worse environment. That’s exactly what the Jets did with Davis, as they hoped he could lead a new-look receiving corps to success with a rookie quarterback. Davis dealt with injuries and only played in nine games, but in those games, he averaged just 1.74 yards per route run — a massive dropoff from the 2.58 he managed last season. Davis also posted the highest drop rate (15.6%) of his career and his lowest PFF grade since he was a rookie. He will get another chance next season, but the Jets need the former first-round pick to up his game.“

    Depends if you think that the problem was with Davis developing dropsy vs. Zach's throwing being the main issue here ... given Zach's well documented issues I'm of the opinion that it was more on him than the WRs.

    You are 100% right...the compensation was ridiculous. I honestly just don't think they really wanted him. Don't think there's any more to it than that. Makes me think they are taking a WR at #4 even if they sign another in FA. The other thing that is a bit strange......didn't hear anything about multiple teams in on Cooper, especially with the price Dallas was asking for.

    The reason the compensation was so low was the contract rather than the player.

    Davis always has had drop issues 

    moore has a slight frame 

    what you think? I think the answer is pretty obvious tbh 

     

    By that same logic, Becton should have played most of the year last year and been a strong LT, like in his first year. And Mims should have looked promising, like in his first year.

    I guess Joe Burrow shouldn't have lasted the season in Cincy either? 

    Players can improve and players can regress. Some get hurt and some stay healthy. But assuming the same will happen next year is just looking for misery IMHO.
