    I like Waddle I think he's more polished and has better skills then a guy like Ruggs who I would say is just a speed guy.

    Fits our new offense better. YAC, ability. Can play outside, or in the slot. Too high at #4. #8. Maybe.

    I think some of the character issue stuff is getting overblown (although it’s legitimate) and I think that Miami trusts Flores and his staff to manage personalities. At the end of the day he’s the best defender in the draft and it’s not close. He’s the guy who “shocks” on draft day 

    He 's somebody i thought the Jet's might consider if we traded down with Carolina, and he was still available. Interesting info Mr Football guy. Thanks.

    I know the team is high on Pitts and Waddle. I don't know how realistic it is for them to land both, but just looking at last year's class it's certainly possible that he falls to 17 (hell CeeDee did why can't Waddle?) 

    Waddle, JuJu, and Pitts would all figure to be moveable chess pieces in this offense. It will be interesting to see how they use Mims; he kind of profiles similar to Miles Austin/Josh Gordon/Julio Jones, all of which had roles created for them as X receivers. I kind of foresee similar usage for Mims with a lot of designed plays over the middle with the occasional contested throw downfield 

    We could take Waddle at #8. I think i saw you having Parsons at #3. He has some very serious character issues. That could really cause him to slide. Big time.

    The last 2 years with Crowder have been the worst of his career since his rookie season. My issue is Sam's deep ball accuracy, I don't know if Robby's route tree would have changed that at all. Teddy is also not a deep ball thrower so I suppose good coach vs bad coach is were his overall total comes in to play. I think my point stands that Robby would not have done much here last year just like Perriman and Mims.

    I'll leave the Anderson issue alone. With respect,(bla bla bla, lol), you need to look at Crowder and his career stats again. He was just as effective here, as in Washington. Point being. If your a good receiver, you'll do well with Darnold. Why bring Perriman up. He's been a bust since he was drafted. Lazy. Injury prone. Mims,( talented yes), was just a rookie, with no training camp, and only a half a season to perform. Crowder was literally the only good WR, who has proven to be such, we had.And he did well.

    Firstly, I want to apologize for some of my long-winded and in some cases aggressive posts over the past month. Unfortunately I let some of the members of this site get under my skin too often. Part of it is because I think some of the attacks and skepticism has been unwarranted, part of it is an old-school “say it to my face” (lol sigh) mentality, but mostly it’s because I hate the social media culture being established and accepted - not just here, but everywhere. I can be a defensive person. Always has been the case. My girlfriend used to say that I was “addicted to conflict.” Can’t say I totally disagree lol. The truth is that my defensiveness has nothing to do with having disagreements; I encourage debate---iron sharpens iron. The defensiveness has everything to do with attacks on reputation and intolerance to freedom of thought, not the topics themselves. With that said, I hope to let bygones be bygones.

    I create my mock drafts based on what I think, not necessarily what I want. I cross reference things with my own sources as well as media sources. Been compiling this for a while, so in order to minimize the clutter I won't include blurbs why I performed a certain transaction. Happy to answer any questions though. 


    2021 New York Jets Offseason





    Roster Size: 90


    Key Takeaways

    • Media will continue speculating a Sam Darnold trade, but I'm convinced the Jets don't want to trade him. Unless a QB like Zach Wilson blows them out of the water, or Deshaun Watson is made available, I still believe what I was told at the onset of the offseason: 60-40 Jets keep Darnold. Why? Well for one he can do things that many QBs are not capable of doing, evidenced by the clip below. Secondly, the team feels he has so much untapped potential and are bullish on his ability to make a Josh Allen-like turnaround in the new offense. Thirdly, value. They can get so much in a trade for #2 that it's hard for them to pass up. Days of the traditional "draft a QB, he's your guy for 15 years" are over. You can acquire a QB in free agency or trade and they can get you to the promised land. Guys who used to be discarded as busts are going to have awakenings. All of those reasons are just a few why I believe Sam will be returning. 
    • Sources indicate to me that the expectation is that JuJu Smith-Schuster will ultimately wind up with the Jets. If not him, they may not have a flattering of a FA WR addition as once speculated, with a combo of Kendrick Bourne and Marquise Goodwin as an alternate outcome. Apparently teams are hot for Curtis Samuel, and while the Jets would really like him, it sounds like there will be a lot of competition for him. 
    • I have the Jets signing Derek Barnett to a Leonard Floyd-like contract, but I can see them trading for him as well. 
    • I think the Jets will sign Corey Linsley and move Connor McGovern to G. 
    • I think Joe Douglas will finally make due on his promise to surround Sam with "protection and playmakers" this offseason, while acquiring future draft capital to either address QB or continue building up the OL/defense. 
    • I expect the Jets to have an open competition at LG between Greg Van Roten, Pat Elflein, Alex Lewis, Cameron Clark, and Jack Anderson. Spencer Brown will likely take over at RT in 2022 if the Jets come away impressed with his development, otherwise they could look into drafting another guy in 2022. 
    • If this is in fact the outcome, I have a hard time believing any Jets fan would come away being "disappointed"... understandably people have personal preferences, but easy to see how this unit would be among the most vastly improved skill position groups in the NFL:  



    This post was a Kingman blast. Way to go. Apologizes weren't needed. Ya got that off your chest though. So that's good.My only wish is that if Carolina is our trading partner, i would want Brian Burns. Perfect edge rusher in Saleh's defense.

    Put it this way: Douglas had enough in-house knowledge of what Anderson was capapble of, and then made a big mistake. Publicly admitted he made a big mistake on him, too. Look it’s not like he lost Hopkins - Anderson is very replaceable this March - but it’s more about player judgment than an ability to fix a mistake later. 

    I don’t agree on the “wrong LT” thing in the draft; the draft is too inexact and I’m far too happy with Becton to wonder which really good rookie tackle would have been a better pick. At the same time in choosing Becton (so far) he’s been given way too much praise.

    What concerns me more is his choice of Fant. Not just over Conklin (and not over a crazy amount difference in money) but also over Beachum. Beachum was a player the team had, while Douglas was here, and he felt Fant was an $8MM/year upgrade over Beachum. That’s what I mean as far as poor judgment despite having more information. Fant isn’t the worst tackle we’ve given big money to in FA (which itself is embarrassing) but choosing him over the far more accomplished - and younger - Conklin, and the far more accomplished - and more reliable - Beachum, and paying heavily for this gamble, should concern every Jets fan.

    Douglas has made his mistakes, Robby being the big one. If you've read my post over time, you know how much i liked him. This is all surrounding, (of course), the big QB decision to come. It's a huge decision. I have faith that Douglas will use all his resources to come up with a decision based on what's best for the Jet's moving forward. All the observations about Sam's flaws and his frame of mind, after Gase will be fully ironed out. Considering the the experience and reps of the people he'll include in the decision. I'll be totally comfortable moving foward with Sam, or without him.

    Other than being in the know as to what other GMs are willing to surrender for a pick, and some 1-on-1 time with prospects and existing players/coaches, they don’t know that much more. Or more to the point, the disparity in judgment, from fans to FO people, often dwarfs the disparity in this “information” they have that we don’t.

    Just listened to someone talk about Gase calling plays against a cover 3 that are never called for the most part, they never work. I'm not embarrassed to admit my lack of knowledge about cover 3. Do we know at all times if receivers are running correct routes or turning in, when they should be turning out. We watch games to be entertained. We're not breaking down game film. You get my drift

    Players get cut when they are no longer good. He is good and he is looking to cut his team.

    If they don't trade him, he can retire or comeback and play for them. It is that simple. The only real question here is how is he handling things. And as I said Watson has major concerns and it handling it the right way. He has not gone the Revis route, has not gone the Jamal route.

    Can't blame the guy for requesting a trade, what happens next is unknown.

    It's a slippery slope that i don't want to see happen on a regular basis. Your right about the comparison with Adams. He had almost a social media gameplan. Non-stop stuff. Watson has dealt with his displeasure with much more class.

    In fairness, I've heard that before. Maccagnan was the football guy we so sorely lacked - an experienced scout, not a "bean counter" - to do player evaluations. Then we paired him with a defensive "genius" (yes, he was called that here) in Bowles. So much wisdom. So much wisdom.  ;) 

    Im not saying Sperm that their decisions will be the correct ones, just because of tbeir job title. The decisions that they make though carry far more weight than all of us here, because we don't have nearly have as much information to form a more solid judgement

  10. 52 minutes ago, Maxman said:

    Well if you take the ownership \ new head coach part out of the mix, I still think he was lied to.

    Because it is kind of implied that you aren't going to destroy the franchise by letting Bill O'Brien make awful trades.

    Then he never should have signed on the dotted line, ater those decisions you talked about we're made. Maxman. Maybe i'm being too harsh. It just strikes me the wrong way, that after the fact,(contract signing), he gets cold feet, and cones up with these, "Oh, i was promised", issues.

  11. 5 minutes ago, Maxman said:

    Totally disagree, his franchise crumbled around him, ownership lied to him. He isn't Jamal tweeting the thought of the day. He wants out and it seems like he is prepared to play the long game. I think he is handling this with class so far.

    It's an open question whether he was lied too. Stories are they never promised him he'd have a role in any front office hire. Which makes perfect sense to me. They said he could play a role in who the next HC would be. Watson wanted Bieniemy. They interviewed him, and weren't impressed. Not the only NFL team that wasn't impressed either.

    If the decision makers are going to run it back with the worst performing QB in the NFL then it's a decision maker issue. 

    It's football. Not tennis. These evaluators don't know this about Sam's stat sheet. They've only heard about pre-snap reads from a few Jet Nation posters. Cmon. 

  13. 10 minutes ago, Matt39 said:

    Humble posters? I've been watching this team for close to 30 years. Give me a break.

    You could have been watching the team 200 years. That has nothing to do with the belief of a few people here, that they're views are on the same level, as the decision makers. They're not.

    Then the Jets need new people making the decisions.

    This board needs more humble posters. Posters willing to admit that the people getting paid to make these decisions, have valid reasons for doing so. And these new people your talking about are highly respected around the league, and have been for a long time.
