  1. IIRC we simply received back our own 6th Rd pick that we traded them for Demaryius Thomas.
  2. Yeh great point-- I was all for the double-dipping but the balanced draft was the way to go.
  3. Agreed - also, nice touch with John Prine.
  4. Brutal -- missing out on all 4 OTs and not 1-trading back or 2-grabbing Lamb/Jeudy would be a huge whiff.
  5. Yeh, I think you nailed it -- the WR depth is excellent, you get a legitimate playmaker in the 3rd or 4th so OT in Rd1 really makes the most sense as much as I love Lamb and Jeudy.
  6. Hindsight but imagine the roster if this were the draft -- instead we got stuck with Chuma Edoga when Evans/Jordan/ Edwards were all available! 1- Josh Allen (OLB, Pro Bowl) 3a- Devin Singletary or David Montgomery (RBs) 3b- Bobby Evans (OT) or Julian Love (CB) 4- Michael Jordan (OG) 5- David Edwards (OT) 6- Bless Austin -- I'll throw Macc this one
  7. Couldn't help but share this mock-- Getting a vertical threat in Reagor and two excellent WR prospects in Davis-Pittman would be amazing.
  8. Thanks for the breakdown, -- any thoughts on Niang vs. Wanogho? Also, do you think both Wills and Wirfs could step in at LT right away? My initial thought is that Wirfs can but not Wills. Essentially, if we miss out on Thomas and Wirfs then to immediately upgrade the line we're looking at RT, G, and C starters in the 2nd-3rd.
  9. The main question I have is can the following guys (likely available in Rd 2-3) be solid Day 1 starters. The answer to that dictates how important grabbing Wills or Wirfs is. Josh Jones Cushenberry Austin Jackson Niang Wanogho Trey Adams Muti Biadasz Kindley Bredeson
  10. You're right, but in his defense he said he didn't like the picks, just didn't kill Macc over them. For me I didn't know enough about Polite to really hate it... just felt Macc had zero credibility and lost the benefit of the doubt.
  11. This is a good point -- as much as I'd be disappointed with going D in the first (Prefer OL and WR) the draft must be judged by what Douglas does with the top 4 picks. If he takes Epenesa (and he's good!) and then the next three picks are RB/WR and two OL in no particular order most will be quite happy. It's really about talent evaluation -- is Epenesa a Cam Jordan type? Can he get a starting WR or RB in the 2nd or 3rd? Can the scouts identify at least one starting OL in the 2nd or 3rd and one guy who profiles as a starter? If it's a DE and then we go CB, LB, OL then I will also lose my sh!t. Ultimately what we're all looking for is 3 starters no?
  12. Can Wills step in and play LT right away? I'd probably lean Wills regardless but I still think you need another piece or two added to the line.
  13. I'd like more certainty from the OLs but like these two. Johnson/Claypool/Mims would be tripling down on big-bodied WR targets for Sam. Looooved Edwards-Helaire this season. What's the consensus on Niang vs. Tega Wanogho? They seem to be ranked very closely in most spots.
  14. 2015 Draft -- Mariota and Dorial Green-Beckham. I thought both would dominate.
  15. I love the "easy 2nd half schedule" line... as if losing all of those games for a higher pick would have somehow made us all feel better about the current status of the team and talent level. You play to win the game! If anything it's about having more picks and hitting on them than higher picks... but I digress. What bothers me about this year was the Dolphins loss (26-18 was a total embarrassment), the 2nd Pats loss (33-0 "ghosts" game), and the Bengals loss-- those 3 will make me sick all winter.
  16. Agreed -- OL is deep. You go best offensive player, WR or OL, in the first and then with the next three picks take at least 1 more OL. If the draft went: 1-Jeudy, 2-Jedrick Wills, 3a-Wanagho, 3b-Jaylon Johnson (CB) -- we'd all be thrilled.
  17. Jordan Jenkins is fine and I hope they bring him back -- the Maye pick (not player) was and remains awful. Fun fact, in the 3rd round that year we traded #70 for #79 & #160 (passed on OLs Elflein and Feeney) to take ArDarius Stewart at #79. In taking him we passed on Chris Godwin and Kenny Golladay to name two. This was particularly infuriating to me as I wanted an OL but then we took a WR who wasn't big or fast or could play ST. Also, this: https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/former-jets-receiver-ardarius-stewart-arrested-in-gun-bust/ They packaged #160 in another trade and used the picks on Dylan Donohue and Elijah McGuire. So not only did he whiff on the trade down, he totally whiffed on the picks we got to trade down. This is Macc's legacy. Let's all pray that JD is better than this.
  18. The first Douglas draft will be fascinating -- I hope we can all agree that even if it's not the first pick we should see at least a couple of OL brought on in the draft. I'd prefer doubling up with high picks, 2 out of 4 in the first three rounds, and maybe a developmental guy in the late rounds. Also, it would send a nice message to the fanbase to not draft an interior DL given the current depth and our ability to find UDFA gems like Phillips. Draft should consist of entirely DE/OLB, CB, and offensive pieces.
  19. I've said it before -- we would've been better off with Joe Beningo making picks from Mel Kiper's best available list over the past 10 years. It's absurd and it's also true.
  20. Best case scenario -- Leo plays well for the rest of the year, stops the runs, decent at getting pressure -- Jets still beat the Giants as Sam improves -- Giants resign Leo and we get a 4th in 2021 on top of the 3rd next year.
  21. Yeh - 1-year deal for Compton (totally fine with him and Harrison as depth guys) Agreed with LT in the Rd1 next year if we're in position, if we're picking top 6 the only question is where Jeudy and Andrew Thomas fall. Protection and Weapons next year -- Ok with a CB in the 3rd but no higher! haha
  22. Good thread -- it's not realistic to turn over the entire unit so these three are def part of the future. The O-line needs to be "built" through the next two drafts though... get us a legit Tackle and Center next year. A FA veteran Guard would be nice too.
  23. We could have had Joe Benigno make every pick from Mel Kiper's Best Available list over the past decade and the Jets would be a vastly better team. I know how absurd that sounds and I will still die on that hill because if you look at 2010 to now... it's true.
  24. Fair point -- Kalil didn't have a camp so I'm assuming they figured he needed time to get up to speed. One can only hope that he surprises in the weeks to come. RE: the others, is it a scheme difference? Beachum and Shell have been solid, but not great, in the past... but Winters has frankly always been a disappointment.
