Tom Brady says hello.

If they keep Darnold he could join Becton and Sewell but not at # 2. In that scenario the Jets are trading down. Sewell isn't going at 2, so it depends on how far down the Jets trade.  That would be a

RG: Van Roten

RT: Sewell

Best OL in the league 

So you want to invest the 11th overall pick in 2020, the second overall pick in 2021 and $16+ million for Thuney all for one position group?  Not to mention we are now using top 3 picks on Right Tackles a spot you can easily fill in Free Agency?

I dont think thats how good teams are built

Looking at the history of the draft, taking a QB at 2 is a losing strategy.

Problem is we need a QB.

 

Comical many want to build a fortress around the lowest rated passer in a clean pocket. As if this theoretical fortress will do anything but free up more time to f*** up.

I completely understand that line of thinking.  Even taking it a step forward, if 4 QBs go in round 1, the numbers show that its likely 2 of them will be "busts" so thats a huge risk in itself.

I have no issue investing in the OL, and really think Thuney is a smart use of money.  My point is that if we dont want to use 2 on a QB, the smart thing is to move down by trading with a team that does want to take the risk on a QB.  That way we can add a QB at pick 5-8 and also build the OL or DL with the additional pick.  Had we not hit on Becton, thats one thing, but Sewell playing RT just doesnt make sense to me.

lol.....you'll be surprised just how much better darnold will look with a team that can run the ball at will, with a real offensive scheme and good coaching......

compare that to feeding the ball to an ancient rb behind a mediocre at best o-line with a sh*tty coach who had a sh*t offensive scheme

Look how bad josh allen looked without a running game. At some point the excuses have to stop.

Good he can join Becton and Sewell on our OL next year 

As a long time Mets fan ,I can tell you what will happen. Thuney will court the Jets, drive his price up, then sign with the Pats. Trust me ,I know. I've been watching it this whole winter !

It's not always a bad thing.  Bauer signing with the Dodgers was a gift.  His contract is stupidly high and if he reverts even halfway back to his norm this season, it's going to be a cap-crusher for the next two years.  And if signing him meant losing Lindor, Conforto, or a possibly revitalized Thor next year, I'm happy to pass.

Applying to football.  Driving up the price of a guy you aren't getting anyway deprives one competitor of additional, precious cap dollars.  Perhaps a small consolation prize, but I have no regrets about Kirk Cousins going to MIN, or Anthony Barr going to....MIN.  Or even Antoine Winfield going to....MIN.

The expectations on 2 pick are going to be huge no matter what 

Sewell will be an all pro right away he has the highest pff lineman grade of all time. He is talented and will meet expectations 

These qbs are going to be mauled as rookies 

I think those expectations are a bit absurd. The kid started something like 18 games in college. We aren’t talking about a four year starter like Orlando Pace. There is likely going to be a learning curve.

If you look at this list, most of these QBs played for horrible organizations. A guy like Norm Snead was trapped in bad team hell for his whole 17 year career. He kept getting swapped to another bad team for their starting quarterback. Roman Gabriel was a pretty great player too. He came to the Rams when they were just starting to get good again. Then got dealt to the Eagles,who were,at the time ,the worst team in football,and he played the rest of his career injured. Bert Jones is interesting. He started off a bust (just like a QB that's near and dear to our hearts),but then the Colts got some talent around him and the light came on. He had a really great couple of years in the mid 70's, once throwing for over 3000 yards in a season, but ultimately got hurt behind a paper thin O-line and he was never the same. I was a big fan of his in the 70's and loved watching him throw to Roger Carr for all these long bombs.

Sadly, #2 picks are almost always going to play for horrible teams.  It's the nature of the draft.  It is probably unicorn-rare for a rookie QB picked that high to come into the league in a great situation and be successful.  Sanchez might be one of those rare ones.  #5 pick (because we traded up a lot).  If he had been just a little better...  I'm sure there are a few more but none jump to mind at the moment.

This is the Orlando pace / Walter Jones draft all over again. Except Sewell is a better Walter (!) and Slater is poor man's Pace. Both will be instantly excellent. 

For those who want to trade down a bunch, that year is the example why quantity is not better than quality.

You realize this draft is loaded with offensive lineman and the Jets can easily get one at 23 or 34 right? That’s why the #2 pick will be on a QB and not and OL

Need is not a reason to reach. The plan is to see what Sam / Morgan and cj beathard can do behind a top 10 offensive line. And if /when that does not work out, find a young guy in 22. There are no shortcuts. Coach Saleh says this every time he gets in front of a microphone. They are not going from 2-14 to 14-2. It's more about building a program than drafting a savior. That's how we ended up with Sam at 23 a bust.

Last year had more top end guys. Sewells 19 film is better than all the other four from 20. Yes there are creed humphry types but the drop off between Sewell and let's say Leatherwood is massive. It's the difference between an all pro and a decent starter

Yeah but the Jets need a QB so that’s why they’re not gonna draft Sewell. They’ll draft Wilson and then maybe Wyatt Davis or Leatherwood. Instead of rolling with Sam and Sewell

Believe it or not the Jets have worse needs than qb. It's the most important position yes but the qb room is young and has potential (James Morgan) compared to other positions. 

They have zero edge rushers. But there's not a myles Garrett in the draft. Need is not a reason to reach. At 2 overall you take what is offered.

Sewell and Becton sound amazing on paper, but there's a real issue with forcing a guy who thinks he's and LT to play RT.  Just ask the Ravens.

If we sign Thuney and draft a starter on the inside, we have a very good OLine.  If you want to build an even better one, we could probably pry Ramzcyk away from the Saints for the #34 pick and another mid-rounder.  They are in the worst cap hell this league has ever seen.  And Ramzcyk is probably about as good as you would hope Sewell would be.

Looking at the 'top' mocks, the top-5 guys seem to include Trevor, Sewell, Fields, Wilson, Chase, Smith and Pitts in various orders.  My gut tells me if you aren't taking a QB, you do try to trade down to around the 5-7 range and take one of the pass catchers there.  Can't really go wrong and you'll have an extra 2nd this year and 1st next year for your troubles.

The ravens are about to flip their 3rd Rd rt for a mid first Rd pick. Why is that such a terrible outcome? Sewell is not going to bust 

The downside of going qb at 2 is everyone getting fired.

My spidey sense has been tingling about Slater and the Jets for a while now. He just seems like the kind of guy that Joe D would love to have. I could definitely see him being the target after a small trade down from 2.

I just started a thread on him in the Draft Forum.

Lol dude that might be YOUR plan. Not too many want to see what sam and capt m can do. The reason we suck is we constantly pass on qbs. Right? So whether you like it or not grabbing a qb each draft until we find one is a necessity now. Gotta try. Roll the dice grab the ohio kid grab wilson grab someone. 

I dont see any way around this.

no actually the reason we suck is because we have drafted horribly for years and therefore the team is very thin on real talent. at #2 overall you need to come away with either a great player or a monster haul for trading your rights to pick a great player. of course drafts are a crapshoot but OT is one of the higher percentage positions to be project from college to the pros. sewell's scouting report has him as one of the best tackle prospects ever. Also becton might be better suited to right tackle anyway, he wasn't great at pass blocking.

I don't understand how all these other teams are sniffing around darnold and we are convinced he's done 

Yes jd needs to roll the dice. He does not have to do it right now
