who gives a sh*t.. if there's 1 position you don't stress about a year ahead of time - it's SLOT WR

Are you kidding me? 

I like Elijah Moore a lot more than you do, but I agree with your sentiment. To me it’s not a disaster because I think he’s a good player, but what the heck there’s so many good players still to be had in round 2 and 3 that would have made foundational sense to the team. A trade down to the mid 2nd and targeting   guys like Rondale Moore + using the 3rd on a guy like Elerson Smith or stashing a guy like Spencer Brown to develop would have had so much more value to the team long-term.

**** trading down. The Jets just nabbed 3 guys that are going to start on day one in the first 34 picks. 

This is the draft most Jets fans have been wanting for 20 years. Dude is a weapon.  I wasn't sure we'd go WR this high.  JD continues to not be as predictable as some thought. 

Fix the oline. Protect the young QB. Sign Richard Sherman as a stop gap. Get to the QB. Enjoy the safety of the Cover 3.

Mcgovern is being paid 11mil this year.  No cap savings if cut.

Wouldn't that mean he's likely our Center?

McGovern has played OG plenty....college and NFL. Plus drafting an OC/OG gives a lot of flexibility along the line

Lol the Jaguars are trying to ruin Trevor Lawrence

Well they messed up.  Best way would have been to let the Jets draft him.

No I'm saying he is because I think that's where he'll line up most of the time for us.

For no reason other than he’s short. He’ll probably move around. But who cares. Why are we caring again? Stud all around WR in the 2nd. Another weapon = happy. Let’s let the new coaching staff figure out the rest

I agree with you, but at the same time - I also like what we did.

It's not the same as past years when we've done stupid crap like take Jace Amaro in the best WR draft ever.

No, I always pick a NFC team to watch. I really like Fields, wanted him, wanna see how he does. But right now? Zach is the Jets QB, all in on him. 

I hear you. I'll follow Da Bears and Carolina more this year. Adds spice to the season.

Just realized we now have two Alijah/Elijah(s).  If that doesn't scream toughness nothing does.

If we land an Emerson or Asher we might challenge the old Monsters of the Midway and Steel Curtain as the toughest teams of all time.

You go from a proven guy to an unknown quantity with a rookie QB.

Garbage.

So what FA WR / proven guy was going to be the slot in 2022 after Crowder hits the open market?

really dislike picking a slot receiver so high. would have much preferred JOK, Jenkins, Javonte, or a trade down getting another WR.

He's not just a slot WR because he's short, he's a gamebreaker with big speed. He's not Crowder. He was my 4th favorite WR in the draft.

Keep Crowder. What happens when Mims tweaks his hammy? No more being an injury away from an awful receiving corp - this WR unit is stacked

Exactly my take. Moore is a Good player but we have so many holes. We find a way to even get a 5 for Crowder before the season and like sign a CB it would certainly make a tonnnn more sense and much easier to get pumped about Moore.    On the flip side big Moore barely sees the field this year bc of Crowder the pick makes little sense. 
 

Credit to Sammy to Robby. He called this since last night.

I agree, largely i’m happy because the trends from last year are happening this year. 1) we finally have a GM that understands drafting premium athletes 2) He’s drafting synergistically with the coaching staff’s preferred system 3) He dares to build an offense. 

I’m just slightly down on the crapping of draft value we did so far. Love Veratucker and Elijah Moore on this team though, they’re going to really help us be better offense next year.
