  1. This kid can be the Juszczyk for the Jets offense. Take a look at this kids film, he has phenomenal potential for the FB position. Great hands, shifty for his size, violent blocker and some speed. Hoping this kid falls out of the draft so LaFluer can have another toy to use. Make is happen JD!!

    I wouldn’t mind cooks only if we still went WR early (at 10 or trading back up in the first) 

    If they went Cooks, I believe they would be targeting Williams in a possible trade back or at 10. Then you dont have to rush him back and they also don't have to extend Cooks if they don't want to. Similar players too.

    The Jets need those two first round picks to improve their defense. Stop with the dreams of Metcalf, Brown, and McLaurin. The Jets aren't getting any of them. Sorry to break it to you.

    You can though get a quality WR that is better than any WR currently on the Jets roster. A WR that has had back to back thousand yard seasons while dealing with a train wreck of a franchise. 

    The Jets can get Brandin Cooks for a second round pick. I am sure Joe Douglas is one of those who is on the phone with the Texans.


    I wouldn't mind Cooks honestly, and you will not need a 2nd.

    Douglas has to have something else up his sleeve.

    Otherwise pushing all of the big cap hits to next year makes no sense.

    Could be there are other big names that could be moved before the draft not yet public. JD does not structure these contracts without a reason. He might ultimately miss and eventually restructure some, but I believe you are right on the intent.

    I actually find it bizarre how hard it is for the new xbox and the ps5.  It's like, lets make a great new upgraded consoles  but lets not actually produce many of them.

    It's a supply chain issue. Same reason used cars/new cars are skyrocketing due to a chip issue. Only going to worsen.

    If you added in something about "elite accuracy" and "better than Rodgers", this could be a literal quote from dozens of posters during Sam Darnold's first season.

    This is the trouble I have with the analysis here at JN, the (generally) complete lack of objectivity combined with the massive hype of new exciting players, leads to bulk numbers of hyperbolic glowing posts just like the one above, declaring how amazingly special and great player X is before he's really proven anything at all.

    I do like what I've seen from Wilson (said, I'll remind, as a Wilson doubter who wouldn't have picked him), it's been very impressive.  But we cannot just slip past that yes, it's been almost all against backups or 3rd stringers, and yes, it's vanilla preseason when coverages are about as bland and easy as they come.

    It's why I keep repeating, Week 1 is the REAL first test of who Zack Wilson is and where he is in his development.  No vanilla.  No backups.  No clean pockets free of the blitz.  No (or minimal) scripted play-calling on either side.

    If Wilson looks in Week 1 like he's looked in Preseason, that's gonna be a great start, a real reason for some measured excitement.  But I'm not buying into hype based on preseason.

    It's is not about the stats or TD's for me that is building excitement. It's the ability to go through progressions. The coach coming out and saying he is light years ahead of where a rookie should be. The ability to change speeds regarding throws. A lightning fast release as advertised. He looks like he has "it". I never saw that from Sam. You saw "it" immediately from Mahomes and Rodgers regardless of results. Those two are special talents. They had great teachers and talent around them. Is Lafleur a great teacher? We will have to wait and see. I tell you what, the loss of Knapp is a big for this kid, can't be denied. The scheme/talent/coaching has to equal his ability or he will struggle more than he should. That is the true question in my eyes. IMO Davis/Moore/Crowder/Cole/Barrios and Kroft are a talented unit of targets. Add Carter and Coleman and he has the weapons to succeed, not KC weapons obviously, but talented. It comes down to the coaching to develop his advanced and stout skillset.

    Directv still has exclusivity until next year. Here are your choices: Pay Directv or do the College pay thing for $99, Use Locast for $5 per month and spoof your location, Use illegal streaming for about $50 a year. If you want a good legal streaming service, YoutubeTV is good and you can get the Jet games even if you live outside of NY.

    Do you get the Jet games on YTTV using a VPN I'm assuming? I'm hoping so as I would have all the necessary pieces to do this.

    That's Fanduel (E. Moore) and Points Bet (Wilson).  Indiana sucks for a lot of things, but not sports  gambling.

    I have 7 legal accounts to choose from:  Draftkings, Fanduel, Pointsbet, BetMGM, BetRivers, William Hill and just as of a week ago, Barstool.

    It's a degenerate's paradise.

    Waiting on Ohio to onboard this option.

    I am fascinated by DOGE Coin. Got in at .05.  More importantly I am talking about it to myself in the Lounge. Any Doge people out there stop by this thread -->  




    It is a meme coin and the founders control 80% of the supply. Very centralized. Most likely near the top, but more importantly it will be a catalyst for the remainder of the crypto bull run. The money will flow from doge down the list of alts.

    Can we please stop saying this? He had 1 draft where he traded back a couple of times and now everyone assumes all he's going to do is accumulate picks. Even after he just made a big move up in the 1st round. Everybody needs to stop making pretend they know what type of GM Douglas is bc at this point nobody knows and at this point his biggest move as a drafter is trading up not trading back. 

    Lol. He has consistently proven he tries to regain the capital he spends.  Oh and the guys that do know him best say similar....but sure, I'll stop saying it to appease some forum poster lmao. Right.

    There's more value in trading #34 than keeping it.  With everyone resetting
    their boards you know there are going to be desperate teams looking to fill
    specific positions:

    - DAL is dying to add DB help
    - Who needs a quality DT?
    - Who needs a QB to groom?

    If DAL is desperate enough maybe Douglas could get their #2 and Michael Gallup (WR)?

    I fully agree, just not sure JD will find the value he seeks for 34.

    We’re not picking #34

    You can see the trade down coming from a mile away.

    I agree 100%......except if he views Jenkins as another generational G talent. IMO it is Jenkins or trade back to accumulate that 3rd he lost. It is the JD way.

    Second attempt.  I think I like this even better...   with exception of the Christensen pick, I really kinda blew it on that one.  I thought he was a RT and would be a good back up to Fant and might even challenge for time but then realized he was a LT.   I can only hope he can also play some OG...  and also back up Becton.  Of course this draft is not realistic but if those players were to fall, I would be estatic. 


    Love this draft. I do see JD trading back from 23 though. Accumulate even more ammo.

    People can do what they want, but if you think I'm going to have
    a team dictate my health decisions your crazy.  On top of that
    who in the world would trust their health records being passed 
    around on the internet on an app.  I'm sure nothing could go
    wrong with that.  In closing I've got two words for you:

    "Tuskegee Project"

    Do people actually not realize it is not even intended to stop the spread lol. It is only intended use is to suffer lesser symptoms....allegedly. I place blame squarely on our pathetic media class, sports included.
