**** 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.

Nah. He isn’t explosive and he can’t turn. He can’t win off the Edge. Looking forward to him busting.

He's playing Edge in their scheme? Strange. He was best inside in college and had his highest win rate inside over guard. I'm sure they'll move him around, but I'd expect most of his snaps to be inside especially early on.

260 LBs on the inside. If you wanna bulk him up and play him at 3-tech that’s purely projection for a 1st round prospect.

It’s the Emmy’s now
It's quite pathetic and sad. And yet ... I'm still here.

Would love to trade up and grab one of

CB Ifeatu Melifonwu 
CB Aaron Robinson

 

Really good value in the third for Melifonwu. Raw guy but talented. I also like Paulson Adebo, but unsure what kind of corner Saleh wants. Everyone talks about cover 3, but whenever he talks cornerback, he talks about wanting a guy who is able to play man.

No, I think you did a bang up job.

He just looks fat and weak.

And the scarf is clearly hiding his other 3 chins.

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the New York Jets: 

Round 1 (No. 2 overall) - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU: This franchise thought enough of Wilson to dump 2018 first-rounder (and No. 3 overall pick) Sam Darnold – making the Jets the first team in the common draft era (since 1967) to pick a passer within the top three picks twice in the span of four drafts. Though slightly built at 6-2 and 214 pounds and with a worrisome injury history that includes surgery on his throwing shoulder two years ago, Wilson does have tantalizing gifts that have drawn comparisons to Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. Draft tracker

Round 1 (14, from Vikings) - Alijah Vera-Tucker, OG, USC: Jets GM Joe Douglas quickly gets to work in a bid to safeguard No. 2 pick Wilson, trading up for Vera-Tucker. He played multiple positions for the Trojans and could be a candidate for left guard or right tackle on a line anchored by last year's first-rounder, LT Mekhi Becton. Draft tracker

 

Round 2 (34) - Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss : The Jets continue investing in assets to surround new QB Zach Wilson. GM Joe Douglas gets the explosive receiver from Ole Miss. Moore can operate from the slot, take jet sweeps and turn a hitch into a score. This pick could cast doubt on the future of current slot receiver Jamison Crowder.  Draft tracker

Round 4 (107)

Round 4 (143, from Vikings, compensatory)

Round 5 (146)

Round 5 (154, from Giants)

Round 6 (186)

Round 6 (226, from Panthers, compensatory)

Say the pick. Stop grandstanding. Tonight is about the kids.

Stop making the draft a casual fan experience. What casual fan is spending friday night watching the NFL draft. Just sh*t for brains marketing. All he’s good at is understanding QBs and TDs make the league money.

Lots of corners slipped thru R2. A bit surprised. Good for us.

34. New York Jets: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

Grade: A

Moore had risen to first-round status on many boards despite his small stature because of exceptional speed and explosiveness for the slot. The Jets grabbed another player with Zach Wilson in mind. Moore will likely make the possession-like Jamison Crowder expendable between Corey Davis and Denzel Mims.

Yeah I hear you and it’s all valid, I just feel like EM is way more than just an inside receiver, he’s dynamic and exciting and should be super productive....great character too by all accounts.

I liked RM too but you have to factor in his injury history, we could really do with a good returner so I’d give him that edge but overall I’m thrilled with this pick....a lot of people had him as the 4th nest WR available, only marginally a step down from the big 3 of Chase, Waddle & Smith.

I’m also just glad we didn’t reach for yet another OL....enough of them already, maybe a developmental RT or OG in the 5th or 6th but we’ve addressed the line, far too many other positions to fill of which adding an exciting and electrifying receiver was one until we got Elijah......as much as I like Crowder, and as much as he deserves his 11M, he’s not dynamite like Elijah Moore has the potential to be.....he’s solid, nothing more....he just stood out on our roster because he was literally the only guy who belonged in the league playing WR for us.

I got the trade up for AVT when he was clearly worthy of the move, in a draft heavy with OG’s or WR’s, dropping back and getting the same guy (roughly) a few picks later makes sense but when you have a chance to take an elite talent at the position you absolutely take your guy, the drop off after both AVT and EM was significant and merited staying put (or even trading up)

just for context here’s what Bob McGinn’s scouts had to say on Elijah, ranking him as the 4th best WR:

 

 

1+ hrs removed from the pick - i really need to stress that i don't have anything against Elijah. He's a jet now, so i'll be hoping we unlock this "potential" of his game.... this again is more fueled by mismanagement. This team is better off trading back, taking Rondale, or Eskridge and Tommy Tremble in the 3rd than sitting on Elijah. Nothing against him but that's an opinion i hold firmly
