Still holding out hope for Rosen

But for the Jets, I truly thought Devin Smith would be a game changer for us.  Dude was so excellent for OSU that I could have sworn he was a can't miss.

Jace Amaro.  

I was very high on Jace as well. Still boggle my mind how he ended up being such a bust after being so productive at Texas Tech.

As far as high profile picks in recent years -- I really liked Josh Rosen. More than Darnold.

As far as huge Jets busts -- I liked the Jachai Polite pick. Thought he had first round potential in the third. Yikes.

I thought Josh Rosen was the best of the QBs being talked about at the top of the 2018 draft.  Although Lamar Jackson was my favorite of them all, so there's that.

Also I'm one of the few who liked the Hackenberg pick. 😵

Sam Darnold. Not because he is worse than I though he would be. I knew he was young, inexperienced and prone to mistakes when we drafted him. But, deluding myself into

Hoping/thinking the Jets would do right by him makes me regret drafting him. Kid should have went to a team with a competent front office and stability. I feel for him, his family and friends. I’m sorry! 

I wanted Baker Mayfield.... BUT I also wanted Russel Wilson as I thought their game would translate to the NFL.  Baker is becoming Johnny Manziel.

NFL: Paxton Lynch, Johnny Football and Baker Mayfield

 

Jets: We haven't made a pick in 5 years that I have agreed with.

I wanted to trade up for Carson Wentz.  I also supported drafting Paxton Lynch in 2016.

This sort of counts too; I wanted WR Mike Williams in the 2017 draft.  Though I wanted Watson more.

Smith was more of a bad luck case. 

Comes in, gets his ribs broken in a practice.  100% not his fault.   Comes back, ACL.   Comes back, ACL.   Just bad luck.   ACL or ribs, that isn't lack of conditioning, or lack of effort, it's just bad luck.

I guess Dexter McDougle too. Watched him at Maryland thought the kid could play, too bad he was made of paper mache.

Jets: Leo - while redundant, I was doing backflips over the pick. I believed the hype. 

NFL:  Teez Tabor - he was dominant at Florida and I thought despite a lack of speed, he'd still be able to lock down WR's with technique, physicality and play recognition ala Richard Sherman.  I was wrong.

Otherwise, my record speak for itself and is pretty much spotless.  You'd have to go back to Coples for my last ugly swing an miss.

Who was your QB the year Sam came out honey?

Ones I got right: Rosen, Amaro, Stewart. Hated all those guys as potential Jets picks.

Ones I got wrong: Darron Lee (versatile chess piece), Christian Hackenberg (all the tools, just needs the instructions), Leonard Williams (gift from the draft gods).

It's still early but the returns on Edoga haven't been good so far.

So reviewing this thread, it seems like our draft misses were all guys we liked who ended up sucking.  Are there any guys we have taken, in the last 10 years that we didn't like that turned out to be players.  We have had so few unexpected hits over the years that it is hard to find.  

For me, the one that probably fits in that category was trading up for Brandon Shell.  I hated the idea of giving up a future 4 to take a 5.  He may not be a great player, but a decent starting offensive lineman in the 5th round (even for cost of a 4) is a nice pick.

I wasn't sold on Paxton Lynch, but he was the draft pick over Darron Lee when you need a QB.  You HAVE to have a FQB in this league or you go nowhere, so you keep drafting QB's until you find one.

Turns out, neither picked worked.

Put me down for Calvin Pryor. I thought with his hair he looked so much like a predator alien he would have to be good. 

This was mine too.

Josh Rosen was who I wanted in 2018....but the year before I was a huge fan of the Jets drafting Deshaun Watson...Mac passed on him because he wasn't ready to admit the Hackenberg mistake. Hope Joe Douglas is luckier than our previous GM's.

I loved the Leo Williams 'steal' pick

I also like Rosen and as awful as this sounds, he may be a late bloomer.  😀

Sam.  I just didnt think we had a chance.  I was warming up to the idea Rosen/Mayfield out of fear we were going to draft them but Sam was my #1 guy.

Tough question, especially considering that we basically have two complete drafts since 2010, I think, where not only are no players left on the Jets, but may not be any left in the league. I agree with Shell, actually thought he was gonna be better. Only guy that comes to my mind, and being very, very optimistic here, is Sheppard. Very small sample size, but looked pretty decent 2nd half of the year.

After seeing Devin Smith in title game I was like, "Oh baby!"

But at the end of the next year I was like:

"Oh sh*t!"

I was pretty high on Rosen too. I think it’s the risk-averse approach I take...I had Allen and Lamar at 4 and 5 in that 2018 QB group....

1. Darnold

2. Rosen

3. Baker

4. Allen

5. Lamar

Enunwa. Injuries aside he’s shown he’s a player. I didn’t want him. Wasn’t even convinced he’d make the team as a rookie.

Nathan Shepherd is, I'm happy to say, now proving me (and a lot of other posters) wrong.

Wasn't a fan of that pick at all, as I think over-aged players seldom work out.

And yet here you are, posting on message boards and playing FortNite at 2AM instead of being hired to rebuild the Washington Redskins.

What we’re learning here is that the one big draft mistake is all 32 teams failing to pick T0m.
