Chris Wesseling ‏@ChrisWesseling 8m8 minutes ago #Jets DE Leonard Williams on facing Patriots: "I hope that's the first sack of my career, on Tom Brady"

CALL A TIMEOUT!!!

Lol at Mac's answer to manish asking him if he'd have drafted another tackle if it was BPA,  "if I drafted another Dtackle, I'd be afraid you guys would tihnk I was trading Sheldon."

Non-stop motor, high character, built for 3-4 OLB... this is exactly the type of guy Mac was talking about when he referenced always having those 3-4 OLBs in the developmental pipeline.

 

Just got finished looking at some videos; guys this dude looks like a BEAST.  He is has great size at 6'4 260 and plays with some serious intensity.  He also played against some top nice competition.  I am getting more and more stoked about this pick. Our defense is going to be a SICK.

Apparently we lost the superbowl by trading back 12 spots and not drafting the guy rated higher by mel ******* kiper.

 

I trust the scout running our draft more than the talking sphincters.

 

Fixed.

Kiper had him ranked #83 on his Big Board and we got him at #82.

 

CBS has him as the 5th best OLB in the draft.  

 

Just because we don't know him doesn't mean the professionals shouldnt.

Just a wee bit of hyperbole that, eh?

 

Folks are allowed to be disappointing you know.  Trade down, get a guy who has a good story but smells like a reach (or not), if there were guys they really liked lost because of the trade down.  Or becuase yet more D added to a Top 10 D while we have a bottom 5 O, /shrug.

 

It's all just opinion.  We walk out of this draft without a QB I'll be disappointed.  Doesn't make me right or wrong per se, just opinionated.

 

Getting mad cause folks are happy/disappointed is silly.

Eli Harold, he went a few picks before our trade down, we missed.

 

How many times did you watch Eli Harold and Lorenzo Mauldin play the last two years?

 

They obviously targeted Mauldin when they traded back. Just stop already.

I'm not mad, I'm just volleying back to the looney tunes that are mad and lashing out at my laid back awesomeness, homie.

Clearly we reached for this kid.

Prisco, who we all despise, did happen to say this about Eli Harold: 

 

Eli Harold | DE, VirginiaHeight: 6-3   Weight: 247I am not a fan. I don´t think he´s tough enough. He will play outside in their 3-4 scheme.

 

 

 

and this about Mauldin:

Lorenzo Mauldin | DE, LouisvilleHeight: 6-4   Weight: 259This is the edge rusher the Jets needed to get. He has a chance to be rotation player as a rookie and maybe more his second season. Nice job.

 

So...maybe it isn't entirely crazy to think that the Jets preferred Mauldin to Harold all along.

Count me underwhelmed - really with the whole draft, whole thing was anitclimatic.

 

I'm not a scout or a prob but in my armchair here I would've much preferred Tevin Coleman or Eli Harold, or Duke Johnson. 

 

5th round picks are usually not worth squat - I think the trade down was a mistake, JMO

You do have laid back awesomeness, I agree.

 

Just give me a QB prospect, please.  Please.  Some #3 we can develop (or try to).

 

Someone not named Fitz or Geno, please.

You're not getting one in this draft. QBs in this draft suck.

It seems more than obvious they were either targeting him or had him ranked on par with anyone else we missed or else they wouldn't have traded down, not sure what the complaints are. 

 

 

Edit: Mac basically just confirmed the above. He was saying if you have a group of players that are blocked together in their value, that's how you look to trade down. So it's pretty clear they had Mauldin in that group.

No obvious about it, could have been planned or desperation.

And yeah it's real tough to catch Louisville and Virginia games, they are in real remote conferences

That's what I'm hoping

No way to know for sure if Mac thought Harold or Duke would be there though

Mac is on NYJ.com explaining his tradeback philosophy. Basically a value-tier philosophy which tells him he can move back and get a player of equal value from his tier at 82 that he can at 70, so his preference is to add more picks.

 

Tantrum fans should check this out.
