Round 4: 3 top targets

Recommended Posts

The Jets have the 3rd pick in the 4th round and there are 3 guys still on the board that they can't go wrong with, both from a need and value perspective. 

1. K. Harmon- WR

2. Hakeem Butler- WR

3. Julian Love- CB

These are names that have been tossed around as prospects for the Jets and most Jet fans would have never expected any of them to be there sitting in Rd. 4.  The Jets need to grab one of these guys and one of them will definitely be there if they do not trade down.   

Are there any other prospects on your radar? 

*Sidenote: Although probably unpopular amongst Jet fans, I would not mind trading the 4th round pick for a legit veteran starting C.

Lamont Galliard is the only center left and isnt a bad prospect at this point.

There are plenty of prospects with much, much higher upside and talent who were expected to go as high as the 2nd round and slipped to the 4th- not just the 3 I mention in my thread. Galliard is not one of them, and at this point, he could very well still be there in the 6th when the Jets pick again.

Do we only have 1 4th rounder?

The Jets have 2 draft picks remaining. 105- Rd. 4 and 196- Rd. 6. They gave up the 7th to move up one spot for Edoga.

Brooks and Jeremiah have Love as a 2nd round zone specialist. Not sure how that fits or our need but a very instinctive player

I think you are right. Love is not the best fit in a man-press scheme. But honestly I want Butler or Harmon. When you look at the Jets roster, there is not much room for another CB. I really like Jones, Robinson and Nickerson. I would not want to cut any of those guys or put them on PS. Tru, Roberts and Poole are pretty much locked down and penciled in as starters. That's 6 CBs and I doubt we carry more than 6 into the season.

Butler and Harmon are pretty good values at WR in the 4th 

Bryce Love and Justice Hill at RB as well.

I really like Justice Hill as well. I doubt the Jets will go that route having just signed Montgomery but it would not be a bad selection.

Julian Love - Michael Jordan - Hakeem Butler.

If we land of any of those, then I can already call this a very successful draft that can have netted us 4 long term starters, none of whom are 25 years old on draft night.

Would not mind Michael Jordan either. He can play C or G and is absolutely massive. I see him as a legit NFL starter somewhere along the O-line. However, passing up on Butler or Harmon, if they are there, would be tough for me.

Knowing the Jets I think they’d go with Love over a WR. 

Although I put him on my list, I would probably change it and put Michael Jordan on there instead. Realized that despite being a great prospect, Love is a zone cover CB and would not be a great fit for the way the Jets play. So I actually doubt they take him. And I have mentioned this already but if you look at the roster, it doesn't make sense for them to go after a CB. They have 3 veteran CBs penciled in as starters (2 of whom they just signed and one Tru who is here long term) and they have 3 young developing corners (including a backup slot CB) who look very good and I would doubt they would want to cut any one of them (Robinson, jones, Nickerson). That makes 6 and I don't see the Jets carrying more than 6 into the season. Going after a CB at this point simply doesn't make sense to me. Either you draft one early and part ways with Jones or Robinson or nickerson or you take one very late and if he does not play lights out you are ok to put him on PS.  

To me, this will be a WR or TE or O-lineman. And Butler or Harmon are the top 2 prospects on the board-IMO. They happen to be WRs.

Butler please

Butler would be great. Love his size and speed. Not a great route runner and hands are a bit iffy, but in the 4th that's splitting hairs, this guy has the talent to go in the 1st round- just a bit raw with his skills, which is probably why he slipped to the 4th (also this is a deep WR class).

K.Harmon is kind of the opposite to me. He has all the skills in the world but not the physical attributes. He did not run the best 40 and is considered by some to be slow-footed. But he still has great size and strength and just makes plays. GREAT hands. GREAT tape. I like Harmon a lot. Tough to pass on him and tough to pass on Butler, but I'm guessing the Jets won't have to make that decision as one of them will be gone by the time they pick.

Just a highlight reel, but you can see how this guy is a legit playmaker.

Couldn't agree more. I gotta think CB, it's such a huge need

I really disagree with this narrative. Might be a huge need down the road but not this year. Assuming they carry 6 CBs into the season:

Tru, Roberts, Poole (all locked down financially- two were just signed)...Nickerson- young backup slot CB they took last year, looked good whenever he got the chance to play. Jones- super talented developmental outside CB, looked good when he go the chance to play. Robinson- another young and super talented outside CB who played well when given the opportunity last year (was able to stay healthy too- which was an issue for him). I think the Jets like where they are at with their CBs. It would be one thing if they saw a greedy Williams or Murphy slip into the 3rd round and just could not pass up on the value. But at this point, I don't see them going after a CB, nor should they. 

As most have said, OG/C or TE is possible but the value is really at the WR position, so I think they will go that route.

Gregg Williams plays a lot of zone, especially when he blitzes. 

I think this team is built to play man-press and G.Williams will be playing man-press for the most part. Sure, maybe mix in some zone when he blitzes, but it will be mainly man-press, IMO.

I hope we can trade Lee for a 4th rounder (no idea if that's realistic).  The Jets need to get some protection for Sam.  Our WRs are not great but we can probably get through another year with them, knowing that we added Le'veon, who is a great receiving RB.   I really think the Jet offense is going to be similar to Seattle's last year.  In other words, our identity is going be as a running team (and Darnold's role will be similar to Sanchez's role in his 2nd year).  Everything will likely run through Bell.  I bet we draft a RB today to split some of his workload.  

I think its WR- simply based on there being great value and there being a 5th/6th spot for a rookie WR on the roster without having to cut a starter of put a rookie on PS.

Other likely scenario is a C/OG or a trade getting us a veteran C/G. I keep thinking Michael Jordan, the MASSIVE C/G out of Ohio state. 

 

TE is a possibility but unlikely. The Jets have a legit starter in Herndon and lots of depth (Tomlinson, Leggett, Brown, Sterling). They would really have to like someone and I actually don't see the value at this point so I see it as an unlikely pick.

RB- who knows, they brought in a lot of RBs and Macc loves taking RBs late. However, they have Bell, McGuire, Montgomery, and Cannon. Not stellar depth, but you would imagine they carry 3. McGuire is a solid change of pace back who can catch the ball and Montgomery they just signed- here's a swiss army knife type of guy who can play WR and return. I kind of see those 3 as the guys that make it on the roster, with Cannon odd man out. Drafting a RB in the 4th to add to that competition- I don't really see that happening. Again, they would really have to like a guy.

CB- unlikely. Again, the Jets have 3 starters penciled in and talented young developmental depth rounding out the top 6 (Nickerson, Jones, Robinson). Adding another CB in Rd. 4 to add to that competition, knowing you will have to cut one of them does not make sense to me.

Michael Jordan. No brainer. Our OL needs youth. KId can play center for a year or two and then go to a guard spot.

Not sure you can call Michael Jordan a no-brainer with Butler and K.Harmon still on the board.

I like Jordan and would not mind the pick. But I'm not sure he has any more potential to be a starting C/OG than Butler or Harmon have to be impact WRs that can contribute right away, especially Butler as a Red Zone target or #2 across from Anderson with Enunwa as a split end and Crowder in the slot.

Jazz Ferguson >>>>> Butler & Harmon.

We need a split end. He is our guy and a better athlete than those two.

 

I like Ferguson a lot. Very similar to Butler. Not quite the same type of player that Harmon is. Not sure if he is "better" than either of them. But I would not be upset of they took him. However, if you are talking about a split end that's pretty much Enunwa does best. So I'm not sure that we need a split end. We actually 'need' a guy that can play across from Anderson, with Enunwa as a split end, Herndon as a TE, Crowder in the slot and Bell in the flat.
