  1. in round 2, i would have preferred javonte williams over a WR because i thought we had better depth at WR than RB.  but i did not think there was anyway we would come out with michael carter at the top of the 4th.

    i understand that williams and carter are very much different backs.  but i am thrilled with how it worked out, getting moore and carter.  

    great job

  2. love the pick.  the guy averaged 8 yards per carry and led the nation in runs over 20 yards.  he can also split out wide and return kicks.

    it's like JD knew who he was picking when they decided on leon washington announcing the pick

    weaponzzzz!!!

    So if we are to take JD at his word about Crowder, will won't be getting back a 3rd rounder tonight, unfortunately.

    jamison crowder was not getting you a 3rd round pick.

    why would a GM give up a 3rd for a good, not great, player on the last year of his contract.

    Rondale Moore if you were going to stay ...

    . But stayed to take a Slot WR at #34. I can't dig it

     

     

    so you are upset that we took a slot WR at #34 and didn't trade back 

    but if we had to stay, you would have taken...a slot WR... 🙄

    you are using the informal definition.  i was going by the literal definition 😀

    the informal use actually uses the word literally to mean exact

    you literally just made yourself look stupid by calling out his proper use of the word.....like literally

    you literally are mistaken, because each and every player listed in the aforementioned post is a need for the jets.

    he offered his opinion, which i respect.  he thinks the pick should be on the defensive side, which is a reasonable position to take.  but it is not literally true that the jets do not need a RB or WR or o-line or TE

    I think we need two OLBs, another Edge, CB and SS.

    Edge is very important in this front. If you dont get pressure we will be watching teams walk down the field on us.

    We have no 4-3 OLBs. This is a problem.

    I am ok with signing a couple vet CBs like Poole and Sherman and passing on CB

    I dont see a SS on this roster.

    We have solid starters on offense at every position and lots of day three picks to add depth and competition. The only true need I see is FB and I would like to see the Jets pick Ben Mason at some point.

    thanks for your opinion.  i can understand wanting some defensive players (and sign me up for ben mason later).

    but what you said before is not true.  the jets still do have a need for all those players.  they also have the needs you outlined above (sadly that means they have a lot of needs).

    i mean if someone suggested taking a QB at 34, i would say they literally have no need for that player.  technically that wouldn't be 100% accurate either, but seems a more apt use of literally than saying they have literally no needs at RB, WR, o-line or TE

  8. i think it was a dumb pick given they have robinson, who i like a lot, but i'm happier he's on jax than buffalo

    and carlos hyde is not keeping him off the field.  unless urban is loyal to his former player, you'd have to be crazy to sit a talent like etienne for carlos hyde.  so i think it's lip service to his former, and now once again, player

    I will give you the address of the university that supplied me with my graduate degree. You can write to them and complain about my english.

    But yeah we dont need any of the players you listed.

    mazel tov on your masters.  still don't think you are using literally correct.

    but forgetting that, who do the jets need?

    do you not think adding another lineman is a need?

    do you not think adding a RB is a need?

    do you not think adding a WR is a need?

    do you not think adding a TE is a need? (personally i do not want to take a TE at 34)

    pet peeve of mine, but i'm not sure you understand the meaning of literally.

    i mean yeah, it's true, we don't "need" any player.  we didn't "need" zach or AVT.  but they were good players at positions we were seeking to fill.

    so with the caveat that it is technically true that we don't "need" any single player, the jets definitely do need some help on the o-line and RB and WR and TE, and pretty much any of the guys listed would most definitely fill a "need" and would be solid picks

    With out a shadow of a doubt the dolphins moving back up to 6th after the trade with the 49er was the worst move of the draft. They should never have moved back up until they seen what players were available, after Pitts and chase were gone they basically gave up a 1st to get Waddle.

    If they had stay pat at #12 going into the draft they could have got smith with a small trade like the eagles did or got another 1st like the giants did to take toney.

    It's impossible to tell who will be the best between waddel, smith and toney as a pro so the dolphins paid way way to much for their reciever.

     

    ^^^this

    there was no reason to make that trade up before the draft.  not for 6.  too many variables in front of you.  and my guess is it backfired on them as they likely didn't get either of their top targets.

    does anyone think that "on the clock" the dolphins would give up #12, a 4th rounder and the 2022 1st to move up for a 5'9 slot WR/returner?  waddle may be an excellent player.  but there is no way the dolphins, or anyone, is giving up that draft capital "on the clock"

     

    also, while i think the trade back for the giants was excellent value, they then used the pick to reach for another WR after spending big money of golladay when they already had sheppard and slayton (plus engram and they just signed kyle randolph).

    If we kept our pick and picked the lineman who went in our original spot and we had 2 more 3rd rounders...what would you be happier with? Who we drafted or the guy who they drafted with our 3rd rounders.

    it really depends on how the ranked the players.

    if they truly felt AVT was a top 10 talent, and he becomes an elite guard like nelson or decastro, you make the trade and don't look back.  i'm in no position to offer any real insight, but if JD truly believed AVT to be elite, you make the trade

    Hard to say.  Raiders are well known for making crazy picks, it's no sure thing they go AVT instead of reaching on Leatherwood.

    Regardless, Darrisaw would have been an equally huge O-line upgrade for us IMO.  

    Like I said above, not weeping over the move in any form, AVT was a guy I wanted at a position I wanted and we got him.  Hard to really complain.

    My point is the "must trade down and get 3rd rounders" idea.  No, we don't IMO.  We need another legit day 1 starter as a position of need, and there are a number of those sitting starting at us right now.

    I don't prefer to trade back if it costs us that starter for guys like Morgan/Clark/Perine/Zuniga.  

     

    i get what your saying, but it really depends on how far they drop back and what they get in return.

    if they are able to move back say 10 spots and still get a quality player (say e. moore, marshall, j. williams, samuel, molden, and possibly a lineman like jenkins, eichenberg or dickerson) and then use the gained pick to get someone like a RB (carter, sermon, gainwell) or WR (r. moore, collins) or a lineman or CB that falls, then i'm all in favor of moving back.

    probably wouldn't want to drop more than 10 spots (i listed 8 above and that doesn't include any of edge rushers or LBs we may consider).  not sure if that gets you a 3rd, but probably a 4th, so you can package some later picks to move into the 3rd and grab someone else

    As bad as we need to upgrade RT we still have zero depth at WR.  We are one Mims hamstring away from a repeat of last year’s sh tshow at WR

     

    do you even look at the roster or just make crap up

    last year, the jets opened with an injured perriman, an injured mims, crowder (who got injured), and then guys like berios, j. smith and v. smith

    this year they have corey davis, an assumedly healthy mims, crowder and keelan cole in addition to those other guys.

    cole may not be a sexy name, but he had 55 catches for 642 yds and 5 TDs last year.  that's not bad for a WR4
