  1. And they didn't grab a WR ANYWHERE in the draft? Who is Jackson going to throw to?
  2. I chose Wilson because he will (hopefully) have the most direct impact on being able to assess Zach this season. Hall will likely take pressure off Zach and hide deficiencies, but we NEED to know if Zach is worth future investment, and unless G. Wilson is a bust, he should help us do just that . . .
  3. I'm amazed no one has commented on your ability to compliment the player while still making sure we all know he couldn't beat your Hawkeyes. Well done
  4. Great insight -- thanks!
  5. Thought for sure I'd see a Ruckert thread in the draft forum but I didn't. When are you guys gonna enlighten us uninformed fans to why you're so high on this guy?
  6. That's fair, but someone isn't usually called a "Top 10 talent" if they're not expected to go in the top 10 picks. I don't watch college football at all, so I have nothing to go on except the concerns I've heard from posters here about his age. Couple that with the fact that a lot of teams passed on him, I don't see why the concern is all that offensive. This is a middle-heavy draft, and I wouldn't have minded keeping 35 and 69. If the player pans out then that becomes irrelevant, and if he doesn't I'm confident life will still be worth living . . .
  7. So you don't think a 21 year old is stronger/better at football two years later? I hope that's the case, because we've already lost out on those two years. But like I said, there's gotta be some reason why a "Top 10 Talent" dropped to 26 (even if that reason proves to be wrong) . . .
  8. You do realize that has been a knock on him for months, right? That a lot of his production in college was coming against "kids" much younger than him, right? Jets fans are something else . . .
  9. Very true. Just wondering why he fell . . .
  10. I'm personally concerned about the whole age thing, and wish we had just grabbed someone today without giving up draft capital. I'm still a little scarred over the whole "Mims fell into our lap" experience, so I gotta wonder why so many teams skipped on a "top 10 talent". But of course I'll be rooting to be proven wrong and hope the kid is a monster . . .
  11. I don't know ANYTHING about college football, but after reading this forum the past few months here are my top 6 "name recognition" guys: Dean Ojabo Hall Ebikete McBride Pickens
  12. Jet fans before the draft -- "SMOKESCREEN!! BLATANT LIES!! THIS GUY'S GONNA BE AWESOME!!!" Jet fans after we draft said player -- "JET GM'S SUCK!! WE KNEW THIS GUY WOULD BE AWFUL!!! DON'T THESE GUYS READ SCOUTING REPORTS THE DAYS LEADING UP TO THE DRAFT?!?!?!"
