Yay a strong safety to replace our other first round pick strong safety. **** you Jets 

Macc is confident the guy he wanted at 70 will be there at 79 because no one else in the league would consider drafting him that early. 

Dude, seriously....the second best player in the entire draft fell to us. It's a good pick.  This team isn't being fixed in one year.  You need solid picks.  This is one.

He's a true blue box safety.  Doesnt cover well. Gets beat quit a bit. He's great playing downhill with everything in front of him.  Sure tackler, can lay the wood. Good instincts so he can put himself in place to make plays on the ball but the's not a tracker type of S.  Pretty surprising to me that he goes before Wilson and Tabor his seconday teammates. 

Finally, a guy who can fill Calvin Pryor's shoes

Sounds like... Calvin Pryor?  or at least his draft description of a few years ago...

The Jets lost multiple games due to complete garbage in the secondary. These 2 picks + the addition of Claiborne help in a major way, if not completely solve the issue.

I don't love it and would've preferred a pass rusher or playmaker but this isn't bad by any means.

Claiborne as talented as he is, is too injury-prone to be depended on...cornerback needs to be addressed, along with the rest of the long shopping list.

It is really frustrating that almost every pick around the jets pick amounts to a trade, but Macc is unable (or unwilling) to trade down.    If you are going to draft another safety, at least trade down and maybe recoup the 4th you lost.

Unable, I'm not even sure if we've reinstalled phone service in the war room since Tanny ran up the bill

Pretty much but I think he's a little faster.  He's basically what I thought Lee was supposed to be for the defense.
