offensive FA & defensive Draft in NY Jets Forum Posted February 13, 2014 You mean to say if you get Gronkowski, Gonzalez, Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu in the 1st round you'll pass... This. It's not that TE and S are not important, it's that there are fewer difference-makers at these positions. If you get a crack at one, they are worth what the elite players are worth at the other positions, or at least they should be. Having an elite versatile S right now is enormous for a defense.
