Vera-Tucker, better guard prospect than Quinton Nelson

It doesn’t HAVE to be offense.  If there is a corner(a need) there they love or an edge then you gotta consider it too.  I mean 3 of our last first rounders have been offense do they are focusing on that but it’s ok to build the entire team too 

As far as I'm concerned it does HAVE to be offense.

Anything else would be negligence.

Not really.  If a corner is the top player on their board you do it.

If you use the guy's tool, Teven Jenkins scores a 9.97 at guard. I'll trust Douglas, but really not liking the trade up when Jenkins was there at 23.

Unless Jenkins gets picked by Jacksonville at #33, Jenkins will still be there at #34.

Tucker would not have been there at #23.  That is the difference.  As most Jets fans know, we need more than one starter on the O line.

I will be viewed as a hater, but anyone who says that AVT is a better prospect than Quinton Nelson is delusional

At this point, with how dominant QN has been at the NFL level, you are just being realistic. That being said, the potential is there with AVT.

The Leatherwood pick at 17 felt like lvr panicked after avt went 

Agreed, as you know I'm a HUGE Bama fan but even I had Leatherwood as a 2nd rounder.  I had Dickerson possibly sneaking into the late 1st round but Leatherwood ?

No the first thing is u need an OL.  Idiot franchises like the Jets sign Leveon Bell then expect him to run for 2,000 yards behind our crappy OL

It’s like ppl haven’t watched Daddy and Jr. Shanahan pull 1,000 yd rushers out of their ass behind a dominant OL 🤦🏾‍♂️

I am wondering if the Jets don't like Jenkins attitude.  He has the quotes we like about liking to hit people, but he is generally described as "colorful."  There is also the quote in one of the old-school draft sites that some scout said "he was an odd dude that might quit on you" but should go early day2.  That does not sound like the Joe Douglas mold.

He's a stud.  Strong and agile.  And versatile too.  If Becton gets hurt Jets now have AVT...who can slide over and hold down the LT position if he has to.  

Great pick and worth the cost to get him.

I don’t think many people if any will argue about the player or fit.  AVT just makes perfect sense.  The argument is whether it was too much to give up and of course hindsight on how the board went allows us to always make that argument.  Bottom line, if Jets had avt as a top 10 on the board,  the trade makes perfect sense

Stop. Nelson destroys grown men on the field.

I really like the pick, but I agree, he is not Nelson.   That is just crazy talk.

Nelson is quite the lofty bar for an NFL guard to reach. This guy doesn't have to be as good as him to be a home run pick at 14. If we can get a steady pro bowl caliber guard who can help stabilize the line for 8+ years, you happily will take that

This is almost certain to be the case....

That was a big move they made.  They must have had him as an elite level prospect on their board....

I'm with you...take Jenkins at 34 and we've rebuilt the OL.  I don't think they'll do it though.

If they take Jenkins at 34, the OL is set and we can go BPA this year and next.

You absolutely draft a generational LG in the top 15, and you absolutely trade two 3rd rounders to do it.

 

I would think Douglas was sold on AVT’s ability to play every position on the line if needed, and he did it well.  The only other OL from SC that could do that was Bruce Matthews, maybe you people know other OL like that, who were drafted to the NFL and succeeded.
