  1. Here is an article that has an updated trade value chart. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/2020-nfl-draft-pick-value-chart-using-past-trades-to-create-blueprint-for-draft-day-action/amp/
  2. I chose 'traded' and here is my very bold prediction: When Jets are on the clock at 11, Wills, Becton, Jeudy and Ruggs are on the board. With the Wills "card" (not sure how this draft will go, but metaphorically) in hand, the Jets receive a call from the Denver Broncos for a trade. The Broncos are willing to trade the 15th and 46th pick for the 11th and 79th. They want Jeudy before the Raiders. After some internal discussions, Douglas is willing to make the trade thinking that they can still grab Josh Jones at 15 as a fall back plan or continue to trade back and still grab Jones. Denver selects Jerry Jeudy... Jets fans are angry with the decision. The Raiders select Ruggs with the next pick, while Jets fans are ready to call it quits with the top 3 WRs gone. The 49ers select Javon Kinlaw to replace the hole left by DeForest Buckner. Jets fans realize that they can still get Wills or Becton at 15. Tampa Bay selects Mekhi Becton, 6'7" 368 lbs to bookend their line with Donovan Smith 6'6" 338 lbs on the other end to protect their statue at QB. With the Jets on the clock again at 15, the player they were planning to select at 11 has fallen into their lap again and this time they select Jedrick Wills to start at RT and make the switch over the LT in a year or two.
  3. Tua gets drafted by the Dolphins, then trades Josh Rosen to the Patriots.
  4. I believe that is the Trumaine Johnson money... so $11M?
  5. This is the key, if the Jets' top tackle is there at 11 then you still take him, assuming the top tackle is higher graded than any of the other players available and is a significantly higher grade than what you would get in round 2 at 48. Don't want to have a 1 year fill-in like Peters determine the long term roster construction.
  6. Saw this the other day, too. This is before the David Fales signing (perhaps vet minimum for his contract?)
  7. Of course the Giants won that trade, they traded their 2nd best offensive weapon for a box safety and a 1st round DT. Maccagnan would be so proud.
  8. I totally agree with this but this is why the article was so intriguing. Just because a team can find a solid left tackle, will they begin to play less out of the shotgun and more under center? Will teams start to send pressure only from the right side against the left tackle? The fact that the players coming out of college are not as well prepared has led to NFL teams changing the way they play. Rather than trying to fit an unprepared tackle into the scheme, they have built schemes that have limited that exposure. Taking more snaps from the shotgun limits the risk of having a less than average left tackle. RPOs and quick screens have also limited the time that lineman have to secure their blocks. The college game has also turned out more pass rusher at various positions. This has allow defensive play callers to bring pressure from anywhere in the formation, not just from their "pass rusher". It also does not help that a majority of NFL "pass rushers" line up against the right tackle and not the left. Left edge defenders: J.J. Watt, Von Miller, Khalil Mack, Justin Houston, Joey Bosa, Vic Beasley, Cameron Wake, Cliff Avril, Markus Golden, Ryan Kerrigan, Carlos Dunlap, Cameron Jordan, Jason Pierre-Paul and Danielle Hunter all line up against the right tackle.
  9. Hypothetically speaking, if the Jets were drafting from another spot in the draft, what players would be in the group of players the Jets would realistically target? This is not a trade down scenario where the Jets pick up more picks. This is a situation where the Jets somehow ended up drafting from another position with the same exact results from last year and the same offseason so far. This also assumes that the top 7 players that have been discussed everywhere else on this forum are off the board: these are the 4 OTs (Wirfs, Wills, Becton, Thomas) and 3 WRs (Jeudy, Lamb, Ruggs). I have listed the ranges below. If the Jets were to select between 15 and 25 If the Jets were to select between 25 and 35 If the Jets were to select between 35 and 45 For example: OL Josh Jones, OL Austin Jackson, OL Ezra Cleveland, WR Justin Jefferson, WR Denzel Mims, WR Jalen Reagor, WR Tee Higgins OL Matt Peart, OL Lucas Niang, IOL Cesar Ruiz, WR Lavishka Shenault, WR Brandon Aiyuk, WR Michael PIttman, WR Chase Claypool OL Prince Tega Wanogho, IOL Lloyd Cushenberry, WR KJ Hamler, WR Bryan Edwards, WR Van Jefferson, WR Antonio Gandy-Golden
  10. Not against taking a tackle at 11 but just came across this article and thought it was interesting. It's a couple years old and I wonder if the trends have continued. APR. 26, 2018, AT 11:34 AM The ‘Blind Side’ Era is Over At The NFL Draft By Ty Schalter Quenton Nelson looks exactly like a franchise-cornerstone left tackle: Standing 6 foot 5, 325 pounds, Nelson is “built like a bank safe” and blessed with the athleticism and aggressiveness to be a perennial All-Pro. The quarterback’s protector is often called the second-most-important offensive position, so it’s no wonder that Nelson’s in the mix to be the first non-quarterback to be picked in this year’s draft. But one thing does separate Nelson from other highly coveted tackles on draft day: He isn’t a tackle. He’s a guard. How players at one position in the NFL’s otherwise-anonymous quintet of trench warriors became some of American sports’ most-prized athletes is a story so well-known it was turned into a best-selling book, and even a movie: The uniquely gifted protectors of “The Blind Side” emerged in the 1990s to stop the pass-rushing outside linebackers of the 1980s, like eight-time All-Pro Lawrence Taylor. For years afterward, teams trying to land the next Orlando Pace or Walter Jones had no qualms about throwing high draft picks at top tackles. Even less-than-perfect tackle prospects like Michigan’s Jake Long and Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher were deemed “safe” picks at No. 1 overall — because unlike quarterbacks, who are unlikely to play another position well, if those tackles fail to establish themselves as quality starters, teams have the option of kicking them inside to guard. As recently as 2012, guards were still afterthoughts, not worthy of the draft-value (and contract) investment that comes with a high first-round selection. Outstanding guard prospect David DeCastro, whom many evaluators deemed worthy of at least a top-10 pick, didn’t come off the board until No. 24 that year. In the 32-team era,1 62 tackles have been drafted in the first round compared to just 14 guards. On average, those tackles were taken with the 14th pick, while the average guard went between 23 and 24. In fact, after “The Blind Side” was released in September 2006, NFL teams went on a four-year tackle binge, drafting 19 first-round tackles compared to just three centers and two guards. Last season, though, the market for elite tackles seemed to dry up. Only two — Garett Bolles and Ryan Ramczyk — went in the first round, and both were picked in the back end of the round (20 and 32 respectively). After Alabama’s Cam Robinson was taken with the second pick of the second round, which was lower than most expected, no tackles were taken until pick No. 85. To get a sense of how high in the draft tackles have tended to go over time, we can quantify pick position using Jimmy Johnson’s draft-pick value chart, which assigns a point value to every pick in the draft based solely on how early the pick is, not on which player is taken. Last year, the picks used on tackles in rounds one and two were worth a total of 2000 points, the lowest sum since at least 1994. By comparison, the picks used on the six tackles taken in the first two rounds in 2013 were worth more than 10,000 points. The trend of devaluing tackles seems certain to continue in the 2018 NFL draft. After Nelson, tackle Mike McGlinchey (average mock draft position: 22.2) is the next offensive lineman projected to go. But then it’s a run of interior linemen: Center James Daniels (28.5) and guards Isaiah Wynn (28.8) and Will Hernandez (28.9) are all set to be drafted ahead of the only other tackle who’s projected to be taken on the draft’s first night, Kolton Miller (31.2). If Miller doesn’t make it into the first round, it’ll be the first time that fewer than two tackles have been drafted in any first round since “The Blind Side” was released, and it would match the 2005-2006 nadir for high-pick tackles — only three tackles were taken in the first round in each of those two back-to-back draft classes. It’s not like NFL teams suddenly decided that the offensive line isn’t important, it’s more that the value pendulum is shifting away from left tackle. If Nelson goes as high as he’s expected to, he’ll be the third guard picked in the top 10 in the last six seasons (the fourth if you count Washington’s Brandon Scherff, who was drafted as a tackle but has since become a Pro Bowl guard2). Before Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper went in the top 10 in 2013, no guard had been picked that high in a dozen years.3 But it’s not just draft capital that teams are investing in a previously neglected position. This spring, All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell signed a five-year, $66.5 million unrestricted free-agency deal that briefly made him the NFL’s highest-paid offensive lineman. Though former New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder’s four-year, $62 million contract with the New York Giants topped Norwell’s $13.3 million average annual value, Norwell remains No. 2. In 2016, the five biggest free-agency deals given to offensive linemen went to left tackles. In 2017, half of the eight offensive-line contracts worth at least $10 million per year went to left tackles — but the other half went to three guards and a center. In 2018, Solder’s was the only one of the top six offensive-line deals that did not go to a guard or center. So why the sudden change? For starters, the evolution of the left tackle was a response to a defensive revolution that’s been over for a long time; Taylor’s 10-season Pro Bowl streak ended 27 years ago. From Dick LeBeau’s zone blitzes to Jim Johnson’s and Jim Schwartz’s aggressive 4-3s, Wade Phillips’s one-gap 3-4 schemes to Bill Belichick and Matt Patricia’s hybrid/multiple fronts attack, defensive coordinators have as many different ways to send pass rushers at quarterbacks as there are gaps between offensive linemen. According to ESPN Stats & Information Group, 36 percent of the 1,082.5 sacks by front-seven players in 2017 were registered by a player lined up at right defensive end or right outside linebacker. That means even a Hall of Fame left tackle can’t possibly help with at least two-thirds of the pressure that defenses are generating. Then there’s the fact that quarterbacks don’t really have a “blind side” anymore. The heavy use of shotgun formation in today’s NFL allows quarterbacks to keep the whole defense in front of them. According to ESPN Stats & Info, just 13,319 of 32,436 offensive plays (41 percent) were run from under center in 2017– and of those, a quarterback dropped back to pass on just 4,201 plays (13 percent of all offensive plays). The average left tackle, then, will only be called upon to keep his quarterback clean during a traditional dropback about 1/8th of the time he’s on the field. But don’t tell Nelson, Wynn, Hernandez or any of the other guards set to be drafted this weekend that the value of offensive linemen has crashed. They’re about to prove that the NFL has finally figured out that anyone who can get keep a pass-rusher from getting to a quarterback is worth an awful lot — regardless of where he’s positioned on the line.
  11. That late 1st round pick may be valuable when selecting a borderline 1st round talent that needs time to develop. Would give them the extra 5th year team option.
  12. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001107925/article/2020-nfl-draft-eight-trades-that-teams-should-make-on-day-1 by Chad Reuter Pasting only the relevant stuff. Falcons trade No. 16 overall (Round 1) to Jets for No. 11 overall (Round 1) The Falcons have needs on defense that would be best addressed by the elite players in this draft: defensive tackles Javon Kinlaw or Derrick Brown and linebacker Isaiah Simmons. General manager Thomas Dimitroff has proven himself willing to make first-round trades in the past (he moved up for Julio Jones, Takkarist McKinley and Kaleb McGary). The Jets can fill their need for an edge rusher or receiver in the mid-first round while accumulating more middle-round selections. It sounds like a win-win situation to me. Jets trade No. 48 overall (Round 2) to 49ers for No. 31 overall (Round 1) A second Big Apple squad jumps into the fray in this deal, giving up the 48th pick and the third-round selection it received in the Leonard Williams deal with the Giants (No. 68 overall). The Jets have some pressing needs to address, and can spend this pick on a spot they didn't address with their first selection. Receiver, edge rusher, a defensive back or an offensive lineman could all be in play here if a prospect they covet falls to San Francisco's slot. With New England potentially taking a step back without Tom Brady, Buffalo looking to become a regular playoff contender and Miami trying to enhance its roster through a strong draft, the Jets need to be proactive to avoid falling behind. I expect the Niners, who don't currently hold a pick in Rounds 2-4, to look to move down and pick up additional selections -- especially if there aren't any players that they've graded as first-rounders available at No. 31. According to the draft value trade chart: The Atlanta trade would yield at least another 3rd, the 78th overall. The 49ers trade would cost at least a 3rd, the 79th overall. Perhaps pull off both? Jets end up with the 16th and 31st pick and giving up the 11th and 48th.
  13. This leads to the more important question. Which of these 2nd round players would be legit starters? And by legit, I mean starters on any team not just a team that has a glaring hole at the position. Most of these players are 2nd rounders for a reason. If one of the reasons are that they are slow to develop and learn, this would be a problem in the short term. In the second round, they need to get a solid 2nd round starter not a potential role player with potential upside. Out of those WRs, only Aiyuk has been touted as a possible day 1 starter. Most of the OL prospects on that list have been seen as Day 1 starters just not all at LT, perhaps at RT or inside at guard.
  14. If used like a Derwin James or Jamal Adams he should be fine. But the Jets already have Adams and Mosley, before injury, could do a lot of the same. For a player comp, he reminds me of Taylor Mays. Big, athletic, playmaker where their athleticism makes up for some of their weaknesses. Next years' draft is also filled with talented LBs. Dylan Moses is a comparable prospect to Isaiah Simmons. They'll also have guys like Micah Parsons (1st rounder), Carlton Martial, Joseph Ossai, Paddy Fisher.
  15. Dynamic Henry Ruggs III could force Jets’ hand at NFL draft By Steve Serby March 28, 2020 | 10:58am If you’re wondering why Henry Ruggs III is fast climbing up NFL draft boards, listen to two of his old coaches. Listen to Tyrone Rogers, Ruggs’ coach at Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Ala. “He plays bigger than what he is,” Rogers told The Post. “When I had him, he was only like 5-11, 6-foot, 165 pounds. … You can’t tell Henry that he’s not 6-4, 220.” Listen to Maryland coach Michael Locksley, who was Ruggs’ wide receivers coach and assistant offensive coordinator for Nick Saban at Alabama. “He’s got a little of Steve Smith toughness, Hines Ward … to me, that type of mentality,” Locksley told The Post. “Receivers get high ankle sprains, and some of those guys are done for three, four games. He tapes it up and comes back in. He’s gonna play. He loves to play.” So Henry Ruggs III is much more than another Tyreek Hill — with none of the accompanying baggage — much more than a former track star who blazed a 4.27 40 at the combine. “He’s the closest thing I’ve seen to Tyreek Hill,” NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah told The Post. “I would say he’s probably got better hands. The play speed is very comparable. Tyreek Hill may be a little bit stronger. I think Ruggs is more advanced as a receiver coming out, and obviously doesn’t come with any of the character issues that were there.” There are NFL teams that rate Ruggs higher than teammate Jerry Jeudy and Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb. “It would not shock me at all if he was the first one to go because he just changed the whole dynamic of your offense,” Jeremiah said. Ruggs had only one dropped pass last season, had 25 career touchdowns on 100 touches and has a 42-inch vertical leap. Give him an inch on a slant and he’ll take a mile, and quickly. “He just destroys pursuit angles like it’s ridiculous,” Jeremiah said. “It was early in the season against one of the cupcakes they were playing,” Jeremiah said. “He blows by everybody, and the ball was severely underthrown, so while the corner is in a dead sprint trying to catch up, Ruggs has to face up the ball and catch it like a punt. He’s able to catch it flatfooted, turn around and still outrun the guy who was going full speed trying to catch up to him.” Jeremiah has Lamb as his top receiver, but would understand if Jets GM Joe Douglas, with the 11th pick of the draft, opted for Ruggs, if an offensive tackle he prefers is not available. “I think you could make a strong case that his speed would really open things up in that offense as well,” Jeremiah said. Ruggs, now 5-foot-11 and 188 pounds, was a schoolboy senior when Locksley watched him live for the first time … on the basketball court. Alabama had already offered Ruggs. “He’s got a basketball highlight of just ferocious dunks, just a tremendous explosive athlete,” Locksley said. Then he got to coach him. They called Ruggs “Touchdown City” as a ’Bama freshman, after every one of his five catches over the first eight games were touchdowns. The best was yet to come. “We ran an RPO [run-pass option] into the boundary, and the ball was high and behind, and he went up and snagged it one hand behind him,” Locksley recalled of a 2018 game against LSU. “He was running full speed one direction, reached back up in the air really high, again using his explosiveness, and made a huge, huge play.” There was a 57-yard TD off a shuttle pass from Tua Tagovailoa in a beatdown of Texas A&M. Locksley was gone when Ruggs scorched the earth with a 75-yard TD on a bubble screen on the first play of the game last season against New Mexico State … over the speed limit at 23 mph. Rogers first spotted Ruggs as a 140-pounder at McKee Middle School. “Basketball’s always been his first love, so he didn’t want to play football his ninth-grade year,” Rogers recalled. “So we continued to kind of pull on him and nag at him to get him to try to come out there.” Ruggs played one game as a freshman, but didn’t play football as a sophomore. Rogers, a former defensive lineman for the Browns, prevailed on him in the summer before Ruggs’ junior year not to close the door on football. “Son, just put all your talent in one sport,” he said. “Sometimes that sport will pick you.” The sport picked Ruggs, and Rogers soon picked the sport: a fade to the back of the end zone. “The guy had good coverage on him, but Henry just outjumped him, what they call this day in time just ‘Moss’ed’ him,” Rogers said, referring to former NFL receiver Randy Moss, who could soar over defenders to catch the ball. “The kid didn’t have a chance.” Most kids didn’t. “Henry ended up making a one-handed catch over the left side of the sideline with his left hand, ’cause the [defender] was kind of pulling on his right arm, and was able to kind of kick out of the tackle and scamper for probably about 70 yards,” Rogers recalled. Through it all, Ruggs triumphed over a tragedy that crushed his soul in the spring of his junior year — the death of his childhood friend and basketball teammate Rod Smith in a car accident on his way to the state tournament in Birmingham. Ruggs didn’t accompany Scott that fateful day because he had the flu. “It was traumatic for everybody,” Rogers said. The tragedy resonated with Locksley, whose 25-year-old son, Meiko, was shot and killed in Colombia, Md., on Sept. 3, 2017. “Unfortunately, because of the tragedy I had when I was at Alabama losing my son,” Locksley said, “he was very sympathetic to it, and I did know his story and his relationship with Rod, from the first touchdown he ever caught when he put the 3 [fingers] in the air, and I kind of asked him what that signified, and that’s when he kind of explained to me that that was the jersey number that Rod wore.” Ruggs will continue to carry his friend’s memory into the NFL. He wears a tattoo — “I will do something great I will be something great” — commemorating his friend on his lower right leg. “I carry him with me all the time,” Ruggs told the Montgomery Advertiser. What would Rogers tell NFL GMs about Henry Ruggs III? “Ultimate competitor,” Rogers said. “You don’t have to worry about him off the field.” What would Locksley tell NFL GMs about Henry Ruggs III? “I think everybody knows the deep-play threat that he has,” Locksley said, “but what you typically see in receivers, and they get that tag as prima donnas — this guy is a workhorse, he plays injured, he plays through pain, he plays very physical without the football … student of the game, a guy that can play all the different positions, learns really well. Unlike most of the receivers that you see nowadays with the flamboyantness, he’s kind of your old-school, old-fashioned, let-his-game-do-his talking.” A jet for the Jets, perhaps. https://nypost.com/2020/03/28/dynamic-henry-ruggs-iii-could-force-jets-hand-at-nfl-draft/
  16. I guess my optimism is more toward Darnold than it is Gase. Gase can call the plays but it's up to the 11 players on the field to execute and up to Darnold to make the right reads, right decisions and execute. All things that will improve with more experience in the offense. IMHO I believe Darnold has a bigger impact on the production of the offense than Gase does.
  17. I'm not sure how they got Becton's SPARQ scores. As for Alex Taylor and SPARQ scores in general, it's about the athleticism not the ability to play. Not trying to defend Alex Taylor, as I have watched no tape on him other than the link above, but SPARQ is to measure whether they are athletic, not necessarily good at what they do. Him being "clumsy" and moving terribly may have more to do with his training and technique. He doesn't seem to have much experience at all playing the football but is just a raw athlete. His bio from nfl.com: Taylor was a star basketball player at Berkeley High School in South Carolina, only playing 17 games of football. He had the genes to play, however, with his uncle, Joe Hamilton, starring at quarterback for Georgia Tech and his uncle, Pierson Prioleau, excelling as a defensive back at Virginia Tech and in the NFL for over a decade. Taylor's father, Patrick, also played college football (Presbyterian). Appalachian State decided to take a chance on Taylor's athleticism and family lineage. He redshirted in 2015 and played in just four games as a reserve the next season. South Carolina State gave him a shot to play basketball, so he transferred before the 2017-2018 school year. Taylor played a bit as a backup that year and as a junior, but his decision to return to the gridiron in the fall of 2018 proved to be a good one. He was a third-team all-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference selection after starting all 11 games at right tackle for the Gamecocks. Taylor started all 11 games at right tackle again as a senior, garnering third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-MEAC honors. From his bio, I would think he is a late round flyer that needs time to develop, but the physical tools are there. This is where coaching comes into play. The positional coaches can work with these guys to develop the skills they need to perform on the field. It's harder to take a guy that might be technically sound but has physical limitations. Not much a positional coach can do, perhaps a physical trainer can help, but people have physical limitations no matter what they try to do.
  18. Just went to some of their forums, which was fun to see how other fans view their teams. From what I gather: Some are happy as they see him as a deep threat, #2 WR and a perfect complement to Moore. Some feel it pushes out Samuels. Most of the discussions are about Bridgewater and whether Anderson can be utilized by him considering Bridgewater's stats from last year (ranked 39th in yards per attempt). But the best replies were about the confusion with what the front office is doing with this move. There seems to be a bunch of fans on the "tank the season" band wagon (perhaps for Lawerence). They are confused because they either wanted to use the money on defense (I believe they have little cap space) or do not want players that could help them win. Same as here, there some that see him as a good signing and a good player, while others wanted to spend the money differently. Overall though, they see him as a good player, but differ on whether it's a good addition to the team.
  19. I think people also forget that this was Darnold's first year in the offense. It took them (Darnold and Gase) a mid-year meeting to get on the same page. Once they did, we saw an improvement in the offense. This offseason, he will not have to learn a new offense and will teach the new players, rather than veteran players that knew Gase's system trying to help Darnold. Darnold's understanding and confidence in the system should rise, like we saw at the ending of the season which should lead to an uptick in production.
  20. This would make the trade easier to handle. His salary is $12.5M with a $2M bonus. The $2M will have been paid out by the Redskins which means he would have a non-guaranteed $12.5M salary. A little easier to deal with rather than a fully-guaranteed $18M+ contract.
  21. Yup. The Jets ended up tied for a league high of 20 players on IR, while the Bills had a league low of 6. The Jets had more starters end up on IR than the Bills had total.
  22. Agree. I just think the value will be there for a WR / OL in the 3rd round. This draft has 1st and 2nd round talent at WR and OL that could be there in the 3rd round. Rather take a shot at one of those players then take a 3rd round talent at CB in the 3rd round. If one of 2nd round CBs like Terrell or Diggs were to fall, then yes they should take them. They may be looking at guys like Biadasz, Gandy-Golden, Van Jefferson, Pittman, Edwards, Hennessey, Peart when the 3rd round come around some of which have 2nd round talent. Not saying they should lock into any position but I suspect the talent for WR and OL in the 3rd will be better than the talent at CB at that point of the draft. The draft will be about creating a core for the next, at least 4 years, not just what they need next year.
  23. One other element that will change the outlook of the league is the bunch of coaches (other than Belicheck) that will retire soon. Pete Carroll is getting up there in age with Arians not too far behind. Sean Payton may retire along with Brees. Andy Reid could probably retire since he's won a Super Bowl but will probably hang around for a couple of years with Mahomes. I could see some of these franchises crumbling as their coaches (other than Arians) has been the continuing factor for their success.
  24. A tight end may not be selected in the 1st, but Chase Claypool has been pushed up into the late 1st round of mock drafts and was a candidate to make the switch from receiver to tight end. Not saying this is the way the Jets should go, but a team drafting late in the 1st may draft him, intending to line him up as a tight end.
  25. It's not that Gregg Williams has a magic wand, it's more that the Jets' weak spots from last year align with the strengths of the draft and should take priority. The secondary, believe it or not, was middle of the pack in the NFL. Not bad for a group that faced a few injuries throughout the year. The core of that group is also a relatively young group. The offensive line was one of the worst in the league and needs some young talent. With Robby and Demaryius leaving, that's 1200+ yards of production, over 25% of their total offensive yards. Though they signed Perriman and Doctson, this is another unit where they have struggled to find stability and production. Luckily, the draft has a lot of talent in both areas. Not saying there isn't the talent at CB, but the Jets need to target the side of the ball that ranked at the bottom of the league last year, not the side that was top 10 that gets an all-pro linebacker back from injury and hopefully an improvement from their 1st round d-lineman last year. This rebuild will take more than one draft, and all the issues will not be resolved this year. Give Darnold the tools he needs to develop and grow, then address the rest of the holes.
