  1. As a dad of a special needs son, you have no class and I’ll leave it at that.

    Jets Offensive Line

    I’ll take edge rusher for a 1000 Alex
  3. It seemed like no one could sack him. Everytime I thought he was going down, he would fight it off and throw a first down.
  4. That is prob one of the most spot on descriptions of Big Ben I've ever read.
  5. Honestly was impressed other than the pick 6. He stayed in the pocket, made some insane throws and seemed like every play he was blitzed.

    Talent Available Rounds 4-7

    Why are we so afraid of drafting an edge rusher? Did we really need to draft a TE in the 4th rd?
  7. No way he is a camp arm. It’s weird how they signed him and then they traded up. Trade chip for next year. I think it’s a great deal for both parties. If the jets draft a QB(which is prob 95 percent) then you can sit him for a year, have the QB competition between Teddy and Josh and if Teddy wins, it makes for an interesting off season since it’s just a one year deal and Josh will prob join the coaching staff.
  8. Better hit on the right QB and RB in the 3rd rd. Still doesn’t solve O line or Edge issues.
  9. I like how most people didn’t follow the question correctly lol. Following the question correctly, I would take Chubb since the 4 qb’s and Barkley would be off the board. I would then trade back into first rd(depending on price) and grab Jackson. Take a RB in 3rd rd and finish off with O line help.
  10. you wont need to trade up for Rudolph and trading both second rounders to trade up when the Jets have a ton of needs to fill I don't think would be a good idea.
  11. No way that draft board looks like that but if it does, Chubb for sure.
  12. Where is Dennis Byrd????? Farrior, Buttle and Cox should be on that list.

    Run on 1st Down

    How many times are we going to run on first down? It seems like we keep doing that game after game and gain a yard or two at best. How about mixing it up a bit to make the D think?

    "Hey Petty looks good."

    And Petty has looked like crap, over throwning wide open receivers. Not the answer, just like he wasn’t last year either.
  15. Whenever the NFL Draft rolls around, general managers dream of franchise cornerstones. The notion of adding a difference-maker—a prospect most just assume will develop into a Pro Bowl player—in the first round is enough to make front offices and fans giddy in anticipation. Not to kill anyone's draft-fueled buzz, but you might be surprised to find out just how many first-round picks don't turn out to be game-changing stars. Everyone knows infamous busts like Vernon Gholston and JaMarcus Russell, but the line of first-round selections that fall short of high expectations is longer than you might think. Of the 319 first-round picks taken in the last 10 years (the Patriots forfeited their 2008 selection as a penalty for "Spygate"): — 98 made at least one Pro Bowl (31 percent) — 55 made multiple Pro Bowls (17 percent) In other words, less than a third of "can't-miss" prospects selected in the first rounds of the last 10 NFL drafts have gone to even one Pro Bowl. As most NFL observers realize, one Pro Bowl season can sometimes be a mirage. Those who have made more than one postseason trip to Hawaii are even more alarming—fewer than one in five from the last 10 first rounds. If those trends hold up, only five or six teams will draft a player in the first round this year who ultimately lives up to his expectations. Here is a position-by-position look at the number of Pro Bowl players from the first round of the last 10 drafts. Quarterbacks: 9 of 30 = 30.0 percent Running Backs: 8 of 27 = 29.6 percent Wide Receivers: 10 of 37 = 27.0 percent Tight Ends: 7 of 13 = 53.8 percent Offensive Tackles: 8 of 37 = 21.6 percent Centers: 3 of 7 = 42.8 percent Guards: 3 of 7 = 42.8 percent Defensive Ends: 7 of 41 = 17.0 percent Defensive Tackles: 8 of 33 = 24.2 percent Linebackers: 13 of 32 = 40.6 percent Cornerbacks: 13 of 39 = 33.3 percent Safeties: 9 of 16 = 56.2 percent Here are first-round picks from the last 10 years who made more than one Pro Bowl appearance: Quarterbacks: 6 of 30 = 20 percent Running Backs: 4 of 27 = 14.8 percent Wide Receivers: 4 of 37 = 10.8 percent Tight Ends: 1 of 13 = 7.6 percent Offensive Tackles: 5 of 37 = 13.5 percent Centers: 2 of 7 = 28.5 percent Guards: 3 of 7 = 42.8 percent Defensive Ends: 4 of 41 = 9.7 percent Defensive Tackles: 6 of 33 = 18.1 percent Linebackers: 8 of 32 = 25.0 percent Cornerbacks: 6 of 39 = 15.3 percent Safeties: 6 of 16 = 37.5 percent While the sample sizes aren't huge for interior offensive linemen, those who have been good enough to warrant selection in the first round over the last 10 years have generally not disappointed. That's a strong indicator for teams eyeing players at these positions with first-round grades this year such as Stanford guard David DeCastro, Georgia guard Cordy Glenn and Wisconsin center Peter Konz. Most of the positions other than center and guard have been well-represented in the first round over the last 10 drafts. As it turns out, your best bet for a future Pro Bowl player is at linebacker and safety. More than a third of safeties selected early have the trip to the Pro Bowl on more than one occasion. Given this track record, the teams taking a look at Alabama safety Mark Barron should feel good about his future. The four positions with the most players selected in the first round over the last decade are defensive end, cornerback, offensive tackle and wide receiver—none of which have fared well at all in terms of producing Pro Bowl players. Buyer beware. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will be the first two players selected in this year's draft, making this the ninth time in the last 11 drafts that a quarterback will go with the No. 1 overall pick. Compared to most positions, first-round quarterbacks have done well in terms of developing into Pro Bowl players. But the fact that 80 percent of those selected in the first round over the last 10 years have not been to multiple Pro Bowls has to be a bit deflating to general managers thinking of taking the plunge on Luck, RG3, Ryan Tannehill, et al. Of the eight quarterbacks who have gone first overall in the last 10 years, three have been to the Pro Bowl (Cam Newton, Eli Manning and Carson Palmer) and Manning is the only one to win a Super Bowl. Regardless of where your team picks or what position it targets, there are no sure things in the first round. More often than not, the player selected will fail to reach his projected Pro Bowl potential.
