    This really did make no sense. It sounded like it was written by the village idiot. 

    As opposed to your brilliant phrasing, here.  Obviously, a Nobel Laureate.

    and a terrible pick which is deeply concerning considering that is supposed to be his area of expertise .... Many on this very board were clamoring for wirfs(rightly so)


    I was adamant that they stay away from Becton.  I had a bad feeling that JD was going to make that pick, and he did.  I was past disgusted and on to being amused.

    joe picking him over wirfs was criminal then (most casual fans knew what the pick should be ) now it is just such a terrible look-joe I thought you were a Oline "expert". 

    I dont trust Joe to pick a lineman again round one-he proved he cant be trusted to do it correctly

    The Becton pick was a totally unconventional choice.  A team with as many needs as the Jets have can not stand a GM that makes these questionable boom or bust picks at any time in the draft.   JD should be and should have been taking clean picks like Wirfs.  If he takes Thibs with the # 4 pick, my money says JD will be gone by the start of 2023 season.  He's got to make up for Becton in the first round this year one way or the other and he needs to stay away from a potential bust like Thibs.  Clean picks only.  Ickey, Sauce, Hamilton, Neal. Either Ickey or perhaps Neal if Ickey is gone.  And in round two, he should consider doubling up on WR's.

    Yes, because current experts like you are spreading fake news. 

    Fake news ??? Are you kidding me ??? Becton is a total flake and the CS knows it.  Come beat me down if that turns out to be BS.  I'll take my medicine as deserved and will gladly give you credit for exposing a fool.

    AVT and E Moore are the only draft darlings keeping the wheels on Joe's bus... he needs some Ws this year. 

    Yep.  And with Becton being a total flake, if Zach Wilson does not make a clear stride forward, this will be JD's last season regardless of contract.

    A lot riding on Wilson and this draft for JD.

    You can have opinions, it doesn't make them fact. 

    And fact is your posts clearly show you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Glad you are hear to offer guidance.   We need more experts in here.

    I'm fine with that because it means we get KT.

    I dont think JD can afford to go with the boom or bust prospect with Thibs. 

    It may be Evan Neal if Ickey is gone.  They REALLY need another top notch tackle.  

    If Ickey is gone and they dont rate Neal highly enough to fill the need, I expect it will be Sauce or Kyle Hamilton. 

    Ickey, Sauce and Hamilton are the three most complete players in the daft.

    You still make no sense. Only you were acting like you have inside knowledge...

    Let me see if I can understand you better.  Are you sure I don't have inside knowledge ??? Or, perhaps are you critical of any poster in this forum that has an opinion based on what they can observe from a fan's perspective ?

    Nothing you just said makes any sense. 

    Not to mention you have no idea what's actually going on.

    It's an honer and a privilege to have you respond to my post, Mr. Douglas.  I didn't think the Jet's GM would interact with fans in here. 

    Thank you for setting me straight.  

  10. Hell yes.  The 2nd round WR's may very well outperform the 1st rounders.

    Two of the round 2  to 3 WR's are two of my top three value picks in the entire draft.

    Jahan Dotson

    Skyy Moore

    Taking either in the second round would be a home run. 

    Not a WR, but since I am talking value, I would also, once again like mention LB Brian Asamoah as a five star home run pick for the Jets if JD is smart enough to realize what an IDEAL player he would be for Saleh's 4-2-5.  Asamoah is perfectly made to be the flex between the 2nd and 3rd level of a 4-2-5.  

    The potential and value in grabbing him in round 3 makes me drool.

    Lol if they take Ickey it's not to replace Becton, it's Fants future replacement. 

    You're delusional to think Becton is going anywhere. 

    Two issues with Becton.  His head and his lower body that cant hold up under his weight above the hips.  He;s all yours.

    you must be reading different sources than me - i could see gardner at 4 if and only if thibs is gone - with a choice between gardner and thibs it will be thibs every time

    Sent from my iPad using JetNation.com mobile app

    So the Jets can add Thibs to JD's list of total busts right along with Becton.

    Height: 6026
    Weight: 249
    Hand: 9 3/4”
    Arm: 31”
    40 Yard Dash: 4.53 seconds
    Vertical Jump: 40.5”
    Broad Jump: 10’8”
    Pro Agility: 3.94 seconds*
    Three Cone: 6.84 seconds*
    Bench Press: 34 reps*


    8.5 sacks playing a hybrid role. Any reason why he cant play the EDGE on 3rd downs? Elite combine metrics. Plays with his hair on fire.  Why not him in round 1?

    Looks good.  Another LB that would be perfect for the 4-2-5.  Brian Asamoah

    He's the ideal guy to flex between the second and third level of a 4-2-5

    They are not. You've moved on.  No one running the team has moved on.  Theyre not drafting another OT @ 4 with Becton on the roster 

    I'm gong to remind you of this post next week.  If Ickey is there at 4, they take him.

    Going purely on productivity is not a great way to make a top 10 list.  

    I love Linderbaum as a player but his tiny baby arms might be a hindrance in him dominating at the next level.  

    Could be yes, but inside guys can still dominate even if they have flippers for arms.  I recall that many pundits thought Matt Light's arms were too short to play LT, but he was one of the best out there.

    We're not trading Becton, at a loss, to draft his replacement.  That doesn't make us better, it just gets rid of a whipping boy

    They are moving on from Becton as the expected starter at OT.  If Ickey is there at 4, they will take him.

    I am a strong "do everything for Zach" guy but I am not sure how you pass on Gardner even if CB is slightly less valuable in our defense. On the EDGE Saleh our own HC said he sees a bunch of closely grouped guys but not an elite one which I agree with so how can you justify taking one at 4 other than a hail mary for need?

    I agree fully and have been saying so all along.  No edge at 4.  There aint one to be had.

    The Jets are picking at 4 and 10 in a draft critical for both the team development and the job security of the coaches and staff.

    Thib and Jameson could end up as not great players.   These picks can backfire.  

    Scary stuff.  This is basically the logic of how Quinnen and Jamal Adams got picked.  Maccagnan knew they would not be flops.

    Thib is a bit small for a Jets DE as well as potentially being difficult  Williams is also undersized and coming off a major injury.  He should be fully recovered eventually, but....what can go wrong? 

    That is why sum of us would take Sauce at 4, Jermaine Johnson at 10 and try and trade up into the bottom of the first round for Traylon Burks.  

    Agree fully.  This draft is devoid of "elite star power" yet PACKED with solid prospects that will contribute and have long careers.

    The strategy this year should be "Lets draft real football players that will be core members of our team for a good long time" 

    Who fits that bill ???

    Ickey, Sauce, Hamilton, Linderbaum and probably London

    I have said it before but many of the fans here are just obsessed with EDGE to an unrealistic amount.

    Agree. I would LOVE an elite edge at # 4, BUT... Their AINT one in this draft.  NONE.  Hutch is a very nice prospect, but over rated as an edge guy.  He has "potential".  Thibs is a boom or bust guy and not a safe pick, Walker is more of a five technique guy for a 34 defense.  He'd be the type of versatile D-Line guy that Rex would love, but not really a 43 end. 

    IMHO, Karlaftis would be an interesting choice at 10 if they take Ickey or Sauce at 4.  I think he fits the bill as a possible 43 edge guy for the Jets. 

    Perhaps this draft: 

    #4 Ickey or Sauce

    # 10: Karlaftis

    # 35 Sky Moore or Linderbaum
