    The guy accuses you of throwing a fit everytime someone disagrees with you and you throw a fit. Pretty clever of you.

    They'll carry four TEs. Leggett will probably be one of them. A guy like James could replace Tomlinson's blocking but also be a legitimate receiver.

    Walter Football (I know... ) has Tate #1 and Robby Anderson #2. First step has to be putting a first round tender on Anderson. A second round tender and they're likely to lose him for a pick in the 60s. They can't afford to do that. 
    I agree that the WR crop is thin.  I like the idea of getting another TE in free agency to pair with Herndon. Can they pry Jesse James out of Pittsburgh? I'd prefer him to Brown or Bell. 
    Those are the two WRs I probably like best. I'd be happy with either/both.

    Billick was hired as the offensive genius of his day and never got anything out of the Ravens offense. Won the Super Bowl on the strength of his defense in his second season and won one more playoff game over the next seven years. He lasted longer than he should've.

    Teams with new head coaches can (and will) start their offseason programs on April Fool's Day, 2019. Players will have to wear helmets and shells, at least, for some of those activities. I'd expect the uniforms to be revealed before stills from those practices hit the web.

    Sorry Helen. I know this isn't as interesting as a thread about the USC band's playlist for halftime of this years UCLA game, or what T shirts are selling at the Campus Bookstore, but yeah, our uniforms mean something to our fan base. So yeah, we're at 55 pages.
    Although I think if we take @joewiliy12's comments out, we're down to about 12 pages.

    for the sake of argument what makes a left tackle
    1) Timing - if Williams runs sub 5 second 40 (ideally sub 4.8) he will have at least some of the physical attributes needed. Terron Armstead LT for the NO Saints ran a 4.7 coming out. We don't know what his times will be. If he does workout like an elite world class athlete, that helps his stock 
    2) Length - Williams height is probably fine but he needs to measure 34 inches or more on arm length or scouts will want to move him inside. Luke Joeckel is a famous example of not drafting a long enough player he moved from LT to RT to G to out of the league. There have been exceptions like Joe Thomas but Williams doesn't have Joe Thomas type of film  
    3) Film - Finally looking at Williams' performance against the top defenders in this draft (the Clemson game is a good litmus) how did he play? Does he dominate players, even those who will be in the league someday? 3 overall should a dominator. I'm not like a huge Williams film buff but I don't see a ton of pancakes when he plays. 
    4) Better than Beachum - this is just for Jets fans if this guy, whoever he is, isn't better than Kelvin Beachum they will start him at RT and if he's not better than SHell he starts career at guard. Which is fine but some guys go to guard and never move back. Beachum and Shell aren't the problems with this line. 
    it's all early in the process and maybe you are right Killa but just hoping a player is a left tackle isn't enough 
    FWIW there are other guys in other rounds and other drafts.

    I miss when the draft was the first three rounds on Saturday and the rest on Sunday. Great draft parties back then. 
    I agree.

    Not doing any of your cuts (at least until training camp plays out), not trading Williams for a 3rd. Shell isn't a guy who desperately needs to be replaced, but if you do, you do it with the intention of moving him inside. Jets don't need the cap room, so there's no need to make cap moves. 
    Humphries is nice, but I'd probably go after Tyrell Williams first. I'd also look to sign a complimentary TE to Herndon like Uzomah. Someone for two-TE sets and just a second TE who can step in and not be a drop-off in production. I'd be aggressive at both the OL and pass rusher (as you were) to set myself up for the draft as best as possible. Jets could wind up taking a DT in the third without trading Leo as the BAP and need for a shift to the 4-3. 
    As you said, way too early, but thanks for the effort.

    This is true. One of the reasons they originally went to the green helmets was to differentiate them from every other team in the division which, at that time, also had white helmets. So Richard Todd, instead of not being able to tell his teammates from his opponent now couldn't tell his teammates from the field.
