    We’re arguing over something that will play out in the future, so I don’t want to push it much further, but let me state that 1. It’s fine that we drafted Sauce. He should be good and CB1s are obviously premium players. 2. I think you’re wildly overstating Ekwonu’s alleged difficulties in pass pro based on one vague comment from Rhule regarding the unrealistic expectation that his LT should never give up a sack 3. Duane Brown gave up 8 sacks last year; Eric Fisher gave up 7. They both had middling pass pro grades on PFF. Morgan Moses was better than both of them. These are not upgrades, regardless of the name. Even in the best case post-Becton scenario, the Jets are still taking a loss at a position that they need to be very good in order to assess Zach Wilson. The future of this franchise rests 1,000% on the shoulders of a young QB who was the worst QB when pressured last year, and among the worst against the blitz. They bet on Sauce+Becton and now they have half of that equation to work with. Sauce can be Deion Sanders this year, but if Zach Wilson is folding up like a tortoise against front side pressure this season, the season is effectively over. The mistake wasn’t drafting Sauce; the mistake was drafting Sauce because you thought you’d have Becton.

    The Jets never considered going OL in the 1st round. Ever.  It's clear that JD had DE WR and CB as priorities. A "6th" guy on a 5 man line was not gonna happen when you need help all over the place.  He just used 1st rounders on Mekhi and AVT.  

    Yes it's true he bet Mekhi would be fine. He lost that bet, but maybe the thought process was that he could find a RT with a mid rounder like Mitchell, or a fill-in vet. Thankfully we're talking RT abd not replacing a LT.

  2. No reason to campare or choose. We luckily have both! Loved Moore last year, and Wilson was my favorite receiver in the draft. 

    Both have similar traits. Moore can break more tackles.  Wilson can go get a higher contested pass. 

    That's all I got.

  3. You guys here at the draft forum are awesome for me to sit back and read insightful, pure football sh*tt. I have no love for any particular school (maybe Louisville, my bros school) but love the college game for many reasons, but mainly to find my next Freeman Mcneil, Leon Washington or Bilal Powell. You guys give me a focus when scouting a new Jet. 

    Thanks.... and carry on...

    My Daughter's in this video in several clips.  They did a great job with the girls and really took their time teaching and hyping them up for their big game the next day against their undefeated rival.  My daughter was the only one that had a Zack Wilson Jersey with her.  Because that's how we roll in my family.

    Nice. 

    But, Go Hills!😄

    They really only play a duo too, right? In nickel most of the time. We all think about the traditional third linebacker a lot but I can’t imagine that guy is on the field a bunch, even the second one probably comes off a good bit. I’m sure that’s part of it.

    Wonder if they try to lock Williams up a few more years at a reasonable salary, only signed this year.

    So true. I don't have the actual stats but i bet the Defense had three  LBers no more than 25% of the snaps.

    Jones is a ball hawking LB...as in five pick6s in six years.  All five of them when Ulbrich was coaching him.  All eleven INTs under Ulbrich too.  His last season with Ulbrich he had 4.5 sacks and 10 QB hits.  He's 27 y.o., can make plays...and a former Pro Bowler (under Ulbrich).

    A reconciliation sounds like a good idea to me...for the both of them.

    I like him as a fit as well, but JD and the coaches haven't been in any hurry to add LBers. They've had opportunities to do so both in FA and the draft, but ignored it thus far. 

    They may just feel like the Sherwood, Hamsa, and Williams trio are going to be just fine.

    1 Kayvon Thibodaux- Edge. Please let him drop to 4.

    1 Garrett Wilson- WR.  PERFECT for the ML Offense. * I would have an incredibly tough time passing on Jameson Williams. 

    2 Devonte Wyatt- DT. Surprised he was available here. Couldn't pass.

    2 Breece Hall- RB dynamic duo with Michael Carter. Dreamy.  (If not, then Spiller)

    3 Chad Muma- LB. Instant starter.

    4 Jeremy Ruckert- TE. Couldn't resist his potential. Love him here.

    4 JT Woods- S. Stole this guy from Paradis

    5 Zach Tom- C. This is where C should be
    drafted. Gets to develop for a year and whalah...starter next year.

    5 Max Mitchell- OT. Backs up Becton and Fant. Possible future starter.

    * really wanted a second WR in the 5-6 range. Maybe we add a 6th along the way.
     

    Damn.

    Good list, I just said in another thread that a DT and OL here and I’ll be happy. I’m hoping this is how they see it, too. 

    Zach Tom is my wish. 

    Overview

    Center prospect who spent the last two seasons at left tackle. Tom was extremely impressive in pass protection at tackle despite a lack of desired size or length, but he's likely headed back to center in the pros. He plays with technique and plus body control, but his aggression level is a little lacking in the run game and his mass is below average. Tom could be a priority for teams with leaky interior protection. He has Day 3 value as an above-average backup with eventual starting potential.

    Strengths

    Excellent intelligence.

    Three-year starter with good durability.

    Makes fluid block adjustments in space.

    Easy slide from block to block on combinations.

    Good base width and hip flexion into defender as base blocker.

    Utilizes firm, independent hands in pass protection.

    Throws punch with intent and quickness.

    Fluid and fast in mirroring a counter.

    Pass protection from tackle position was eye-opening.

    Weaknesses

    Slender through his waist and hips.

    Catches contact at the point of attack.

    Needs to become more violent into contact.

    Below-average mass to base up against power.

    Needs to prove he can anchor against an NFL nose tackle.

    Susceptible to push-pull technique.

    Needs to guard against oversetting.

    How about we quit while we’re ahead before Joe Douglas demands $30 million a year?

    Gardner, Wilson, Johnson, Hall and Ruckert?

    I couldn’t have even pulled this sh*t off in one of those silly ass mock simulators.

    Let’s quit while we’re ahead, mmkay?

    Not a bad idea actually.  Trade for two 2023 3rds for these two 4ths. 

    Depth at LBer? Hamsa and Sherwood in their 2nd year, surely both will be more ready physically than they were last year. 

    Free Safety? Pinnock and possibly MC2 are candidates. Let's not forget about Ashtyn Davis. Depth at S is overblown.

    Dont get me wrong, I would have been happy with Thibs/Davis but Sauce/JJ w/ Wilson is a beautiful haul.  I really didnt expect them to take a WR at 10, especially after London went and so many people had us tied to him but I preferred Wilson soooo much more.  Epic day 1.  Still have a chance a one or two more studs.  I assume the Jags take Dean to open the 2nd, but that would be an interesting prospect if he's there when the Jets are on the clock.  Not sure if they'd go offense again but the value right now looks secondary and edge and I just cant imagine them double doubling down on either, wondering if that brings a McBride, a RB or a OL in play. 

    Moving forward i would love to see them pair a Breece Hall or Spiller qith MC... but don't see JD picking a RB until the 4th rd. 

    LBer is next on teh menu.

    I went to sleep half way through because who can actually sit up and watch 4 hours of calling names out and cliches?  But to wake up to Jermaine Johnson is so sexy.  And you're welcome.  For months I've said Sauce/JJ, I switched up to Thibs/Davis so I didnt do the JiF jinx.  And we got Wilson too!  What a night! 

    JD is a god.

    I was bummed out passing on Thibs, and especially when the vaGiants took him at 5.  But trading up for JJ made it all better. 👍

    Loved Garrett Wilson from the start.

    I didn't think CB was a need, but i trust JD and Saleh. Sauce is a fine prospect. 

  12. I'm definitely in the minority on this. I don't want to give up premium picks AND pay big big bucks to any WR. 

    Draft a WR or two, to pair with Elijah Moore and the others. We may never see Moore's ceiling if the Jets offense is force-feeding a high priced WR. 

    I'm actually surprised that JDoug has taken the Hill/Deebo route. Sometimes the best trades are ones you don't make.

  14. It was bound to happen. They'll put out another video update on his progress by april 21. After that the Jet community will want to trade up to get him. 

    Me? I'm a Garrett Wilson guy. But i trust JD. If he rolls with Williams at 4 I'd be all in.

    Because

    1 Guidry was used and abused last year

    2 Echols is good but he’s not a starting cb. He’s an excellent depth piece.

    3 Mc2 is a slot cb- we need a #1 cb which would allow Hall to take on WR2. 

    4 Sauce is there for the taking. I’d pull the trigger. He’s the BPA at 4 and would be our #1 cb for years to come. unless Thibs or Hutch were there which either won’t be. 

    5 Reed does seem to scramble the idea of taking Sauce. But there are other cb’s in play in round 2 that would be nice to get. Our secondary was abominable. So far JD signed Joyner, Whitehead, Reed. Nice! 3 new guys which are all veterans. Yet getting a stud rookie to prep like McCreay, Gordon, McDuffie etc would be a smart idea. 
     


     

     

     

    Without a passrush EVERY secondary in the NFL gets abused. I feel you are undrerrating the collection of CBs we have. Especially Echols.

    The 2 most important positions that desperately need upgrades are CB and edge.

    I strongly disagree CB is a need. At this point with the development of Hall, Echols, MC2 and Guidry, along with signing of DJ Reed...how is CB a need?

    35th pick on a RB is a luxury pick. Especially in a RBBC league.

    We run an offense known for making RBs. Not a good use of draft capital at all. 

    I understand your point about RB not being a need. At the moment we have 4 picks in the top 38. Edge, WR, CB, LB.  

    If JD can trade down and pick up a 5th pick in that range,  a RB like Breece Hall to pair with MC, can supercharge the offense quickly.  I wouldn't mind this scenario at all.
