Douglas Ain't Taking a WR Round 1

Recommended Posts

Or at least I'll be surprised if he does. Why?

- Douglas seems to have a good amount of old school about him. And old-school types like a Parcells, Belichick - did they ever go WR round 1? I remember their 1st-round picks more along the lines of d-line, o-line, defense in general.

- His background: a former college offensive linemen, reared in the Baltimore and Philly personnel departments, teams that generally featured stout o-lines when he was there. 

- He's mentioned multiple times the importance of protecting Sam up front, giving his talented young QB the best chance to succeed. Such as here: “Obviously we need to have a strong offensive line. We have to do a good job of taking care of Sam moving forward,” Douglas said (https://nypost.com/2020/02/25/joe-douglas-background-shows-what-jets-makeover-could-be/).

- And here, also from the NY Post: Douglas must — and will — fix the broken offensive line, which needs at least three new starters in 2020. “The line of scrimmage is always going to be a priority here,’’ said Douglas, a former college offensive lineman (https://nypost.com/2020/01/01/joe-douglas-first-big-chance-to-rebuild-jets-is-finally-here/).

So I doubt JD goes WR round 1.

Another reason why, more ancillary: his biggest offseason WR acquisition Breshad Perriman - a complete 1st-round bust in Baltimore. Although Douglas wasn't there when Baltimore drafted him, that's exhibit 1 on his roster of a first-round WR bust.

However, If JD does take a WR in round 1, I won't be surprised if it's Ruggs. From the Post: 

The Jets offense, which ranked dead last in the NFL last season, needs more than just linemen. The unit needs some explosive playmakers, especially if it loses Robby Anderson in free agency. “I think you saw that in the two teams that competed for the Super Bowl this year,” Douglas said. “How many explosive players they had on both sides of the ball. Everyone is trying to get bigger, faster, smarter, tougher. We need explosive guys. We need explosive, dynamic playmakers.”

I think my board for the 11 overall is, in order: 

Wills, Thomas, Lamb, *Trade down opportunity*, Jeudy

I agree the lineman are the priority, but it is conceivable both of the ones I’d want could be gone by 11. 

We just have to see how things fall at this point.

It all depends on how the top 10 shakes out.  Although I think he would love to take one of the top 3 OL I don’t think he will reach for one especially if The top WR are available.  Also depends if he trades down

You say he’s not taking a WR then insert a quote of Douglas saying “We NEED explosive, dynamic playmakers”.


Sooooo.  Not so sure it’s off the table.

No it was Kraft who made that pick and Parcells blew a gasket because he didn’t want him.  That’s part of why Parcells left the pats and coached the jets

The plan is hope a Top OT falls to 11 then take nothing but WRs in rounds 2-3

Douglas played a key role in drafting our very own Brahsard Perriman in round one when he was with Baltimore

If one of the top 3 OL falls to us and we take him its one thing, but so help me I'll lose it if we reach for the 4th best lineman over a dynamic WR like Jeudy or Lamb.

Wirfs is the 4th OT.  I’d prefer Jeudy over him

Funny that the same crowd that is pumping these guys will also roll out the "lack of weaponz" excuse if Darnold falters.

Against Parcells wishes Robert Kraft drafted Terry Glenn in the 1st rnd (aka "she", tho the Tuna grew to love him), you may remember that pick led to the Kraft/Parcells divorce.   Aside from that - Little Bill took N'Keal Harry in the first round just last year!

Perriman is a one-year band aid.  If he pans out, maybe worth an extension. He's been nothing but a colossal bust but for a few games at the end of last season.

I doubt we take a receiver. We know that Douglas is all about the OL (which is a good thing). The game us won in the trenches.

Even more convincing, Baltimore’s GM just said today that he sees starting-caliber receivers being found in the first 5 rounds.

Same school of thought...came up together in Baltimore. 

If its OL vs WR, it’ll be OL. The question is who is going to still be on the board when we zoom meeting into the draft?

Do the Jets need help on the o line. Definitely. But id say it's improved from last year with van rotten and McGovern in the mix. Fant is a question mark but I'll trust JD on that 1 for now. 

But the Jets easily  have the worst wr corps in the NFL. So don't be surprised if lamb or Jeudy is the pick.

Just my useless opinion, I dont feel like any of the WRs are worthy of the 11 overall pick,  It looks to me that there are about 10 WRs are are extremely close in regards to overall talent and what you get in round one, will pretty much be there in round 2.   What do I want?  I want JD to trade down, I want 5 picks in the first 3 rounds, 1 OT, 2 WR, 1 EDGE, 1 CB.

Is that supposed to be a plus or a minus on Douglas’ resume?

It's an incomplete.  One thing you can't plan for is injuries and that is what primarily derailed his career the first few years.   It is not like Perriman was a reach where he was taken.  All the "experts" had him going about where he was drafted.

A minus, just proves this theory wrong.

I recall many of those old time coaches saying you don’t pick those fatties on the offensive line in the first round.
