I don’t want to sound harsh but if you don’t love this draft then you don’t deserve a penis.

Such a strange feeling when the Jets keep picking the players I want them to

The rest of the league is going to feel really stupid when they realize there aren't any DBs left for them to have!

Throwing as many darts as possible to the WLB/CB/S group is not a bad strategy in a draft full of unquantifiable unknowns. Hopefully some gems in the rough

You've heard of Nickel defense.  Dime defense?

Welcome to the Quarter defense.  Seven DBs.  

This does seem a little like we are being trolled by Douglas.

LOL

Carter, Pinnock and Echols?

Maybe we aren’t signing a veteran CB.

Throw a bunch of young, athletic dudes out there and see who rises to the top.

I really could see Sherman here one year just to teach/pass the torch to these young guys. I can def see Sherman, Sherwood and Hamseh getting the team all jacked up.

I like Nasirildeen and I think Sherwood could be useful. Really not a fan of the rest of these defensive picks. Seem a waste, especially with so many other holes.

Corner Brandin Echols is 5' 10" 185 and runs a 4.45 40.  He carries a 5th round grade.  He played in a heavy zone scheme at Kentucky and has experience in quarters, cover two and cover three.  He is a disruptive press corner with outstanding lateral movement in zone coverage.  Ourlads said "he has safety characteristics" and is "solid in run support".  He has skills as a returner.  

While he is small for a Saleh corner, he is a good tackler and has a lot of experience in zone schemes.

Taking a ton of guys in the secondary actually isn't a bad strategy if one pans out it's a win.  Davis was a bust pick tho.

We desperately needed help at DB but JD wisely prioritized Offense early with the premium picks and decided to then go with quantity at DB late on the hopes that 1 or 2 of these guys pan out. Also noting that many of these guys can be moved around on the field between CB/Slot/Safety/Lber depending on how Saleh decides is best to use their talents.

For the love of god draft a kicker with 207. I can't take another Ficken year. 

Not sure you need to.  Every college free agent will have us at the top of their list.

Brandin Echols

 CB / Kentucky.

Pick Grade:Below Average

Echols is a small corner who might line up in a few different positions at the pro level. He has good awareness and sees routes develop well in zone but has almost no man coverage reps on tape. That could fit Robert Saleh’s system, and there might be a use for him at slot cornerback

Take a f*cking shot on Trey Smith here. Nothing to lose.

And miss out on CBs Shakur Brown or Kary Vincent?!
