  1. 1. Would you consider trading into the top 10 for your choice of OT?

    • Yes
    • No, stay put and let fate decide
    • I'd prefer to trade down and target Josh Jones, Austin Jackson or fill this need later in the draft (Peart, Bartch)

Only way I trade up in this draft is if all but one of the OTs I'd be very happy with are gone. Don't need to have my pick of the group, but I do want to select from the first tier. 

To me, that tier is 5 deep and ends with Jones, but if JD sees it differently, he should act accordingly

Nope in fact I'd rather trade down

people have become Myopic about the LT need 

yes it's still pretty bad but this roster has far too many holes to be trading up 

 

It's not so much the need, bit, as it is the unusual likelihood of filling it with a 10 plus year starter given the quality in this draft. This is an unusual group, and I'd like to take one of those guys

No one really knows but the Jets probably have it Becton and Thomas as "safe" LT picks. Thomas has tons of actual SEC experience in big games and Becton has a high floor due to his planet theory measurements. 

Wirfs is safe (maybe amazing) as a guard but RT only? Can he play LT? It's a question. JD probably hates Wills for penalty reasons. 

Wills being "safe" is one of those things that's absolutely true for another offensive system.  I don't see Wills as being super safe as a Jets pick. They wouldn't pass on any of these 4 but they probably have their preferences.

 

And fwiw I don't see a huge gap between the tail end of this list and the top of tier 2. Or the top end of next year's draft to be honest. Sam Cosmi might be the perfect Gase lineman for all we know. They do like em tall. 

What if you include Jones in tier 1? On the next year thing, the question isn't whether there will be one or two guys in next year's draft who would match the quality of these guys. The question is whether there will be enough high-level quality in next year's draft that you have a good chance of selecting one of those guys next year even if you're drafting in the 10 to 20 range. This is a rare opportunity to fill one of the three Elite, A-1 important positions in football with an elite player. You can't pass that up

Edoga vs a draft pick (doesn't have to be 11, could be a rd 2 guy)

Alex Lewis has RT potential by the way 

George Fant is better than people are giving him credit for and even with a rookie he's going to be the starting LT (prediction)

 

im not going to convince anyone with words hopefully the tape can do some work here 

the Jets have added a bunch of bodies this offseason the line is better but the rest of the team needs to improve as well

OT, WR1, WR2, RB2, OLB2, CB2, are the major needs at the moment

they might need more at skills than line and I'm saying this as a dude who loves line 

I agree. The cupboard is emptier at WR, CB and edge than OT; I have similar thoughts on Fant. But the fact remains that the Jets have two question marks at OT. Could both pan out? Sure. Would it be wise to go into the season needing both to pan out? No. And are either of those guys good enough that if you think you have a high likelihood of a 10 + year starter at the position staring at you in the draft you should pass them up to go for a player at a position of Greater need, even a better player in a vacuum? No. The Tackle position is too important for that
