On this point at least I don't see it that way.  I've been consistent in saying you should continue adding QB's in the draft until you have one, and the criticism over the Morgan pick seems silly until we get an idea of what kind of upside he has.  

i don't think so... Not that I disagree with the philosophy but you have to factor in the state of the franchise. Things like "BPA" and taking QBs every year is reserved for teams that aren't a bag of flaming horsesh*t. 

We need to move the needle on the roster/field. For example, if JD set out to address WR and Oline last year -- use 5 picks on them sh*ts.. do your best so that you're NOT having to yet again, water down your picks in 2021 still trying to address the same damn positions. 

At least until we get to a place where EVERYTHING isn't coded in red on my spreadsheet.

Could we hit the trifecta.

Lawrence, Etienne, Swinney?

The exacta with those 3 has much better odds than the trifecta.

Would we have to rename the team to NY Tigers?

I dont think you can go wrong, its like what's your preference, Alvin Kamara or Derrick Henry?  I'd be happy with either, though I agree, Entieene is special. 

 

Are both equal in blitz protection? That would add some weight to the decision process. Brian Westbrook was small like Etienne but was a beast picking up the blitz. There are a lot of measurable’s when deciding who is a better fit for the offense our new coach will be running

Neither are really asked to do it very often.  I honestly cant say that I've seen either have to stand in there and help handle the blitz, they flare out before they do that and they both line up at WR sometimes too...so, not sure really.  Obviously Harris is a big dude but that doesnt always mean they can block but with a player like Entennie, are you even going to ask him to?  lol.  He's like Kamara, he's the focal point of the passing game as well as their RB.  He's incredible.  My Heisman winner at this stage...

I absolutely love Najee Harris and due to his violent style of rushing attack he reminds me so much of a mixture of Derrick Henry/Adrian Peterson; if he's available with the 1st pick of the 2nd round I'd pull the trigger within a NY minute. He's an absolute monster within the SEC and Najee rushing the rock behind Becton both running downhill is something that no NFL defender would want to face head up. 

As an FSU fan and absolutely crazed for ACC football I'm also in awe of Travis Etienne who as a dual threat reminds me of a mixture of Marshall Faulk/Dalvin Cook; and one who just broke Dalvin Cook's All-Time ACC record for most offensive yards from scrimmage. I'd pull the trigger on Travis Etienne with our Seattle pick if still available without any hesitation. Whatsoever.

At the end of the day I'm torn between the two but I'll have to say my pick would be Najee Harris (this way we can draft a WR such as Rondale Moore with our Seattle pick of the 1st round). 

1A: Trevor Lawrence. 

1B: Rondale Moore. 

2nd: Najee Harris. 

I'd be super excited after our first 3 picks and heading into round 3.

If not Etienne with that pick I think IOL talent lines up nicely there as well

Harris is a really good football player who would step into an established situation and be successful right away. Not to say he should be doing more but he certainly benefits from playing behind an awesome OL with receivers who can stretch the field and keep defenses out of the box. Not things he’d experience year one in New York.

And I do think you have to pay a draft capital premium for that security that comes from his history of being productive on a big stage.

Why won't the Jets be able to stretch the field? You dont think if they feature Allen Robinson, Mims, Crowder they can't stretch the field?

Yup.  Dont care if we give up 30+ points a game next year, we need to build an offense that can score.  And one that can do it with explosive big plays.  Which is why I prefer Etienne to Harris -- I think he is more of a home run hitter -- better burst/explosivness than Harris.  I like Harris too and would not complain if we took him, but we need big play threats.

No more of this bs offense designed to get into 3rd and manageable.  Good offenses score points by making big plays on 1st or 2nd down.  We are happy with a 3 yard run between the tackles on first down and a 5 yard pass on 2nd down.  Hey, 3rd and short, right where we want to be.  Except you can't make a living by converting 4 or 5 3rd downs to score points.  Eventually you are going to get stopped.  Penalty, sack, tfl and we are done. 

That is why we only score 1 TD per game, how many times per game can you string together 3 or 4 consecutive 3rd down conversions to finish a scoring drive.  That was 1970s football.  Adam Gase, caoching to where the game has been.

 

 

Well, the Patriots did it to the tune of running 31 plays in less than 21 minutes to beat us on MNF. They ran 31 plays! They had a 17 play drive for 58 yards & a FG. I get what your saying but there is still more than 1 way to skin a cat in this league with a bit of balance.

The Patriots are not known as an offensive juggaurnot this year so JD can't 100% disregard defense. We need an upgrade at Edge & CB. But yes, I'm with you regarding using this years high picks on offense. If they can trade Sam for a decent pick, they could come away with a Center, RB, TE, if they sign Robinson or Juju in free agency & be well on their way to a potent offense.
