Michael Carter = Maurice Jones Drew


Recommended Posts

Just because Carter split carries with an awesome Williams, doesn't mean he's not an immediate day 1 NFL starting RB. 

UNC imo had the best RB duo within the entire Country. 

What makes this Carter pick exciting for me (I wanted Kenneth Gainwell) is that JD had a full day in-between yesterday and today in order to make his favorite pick with the 2nd pick of the 4th round: and he took this kid with no hesitation.

To everyone crying yesterday because they didn't take a RB, I'll reiterate - THIS is where you take take RB.  WR trumps RB in the draft. 

Incredible. JD is really focused on offense in a way we haven't seen...in decades? Key is this - he did the work he wanted to do in FA on defense and must have stuff in place w Sherman and Poole.

Almost seems surreal. We’ve come along way since Idzik and Big Mac.

Yeah, I had the OP confused with CEH not MJD.  

MJD ran like a 4.3.

I’m getting excited.... it’s early but FUKK after 10 years of Idzik and Mc Coffee we appear to have a man in the front office.

I wrote that he reminded me of Emmitt Smith but I think your comparison is much closer than mine. Good call Ghost all I know is this kid looks A-MAZ-ING!

Rice was a good player. Why tf would I be referring to the off field sh*t? Grow tf up

Haha seriously. I came here to make the same comparison. They're pretty similar on the field which would be a great thing for the Jets.

He's nothing like MJD, who had enough power to lower his shoulder and run through linebackers at times.

Actually I think he's a lot like Leon Washington. When used properly, he's a spark plug on all three downs and I'd have loved to see Leon in this system. 

MJD had an amazing career, I'm not expecting Carter to be a workhorse. I'm saying for the next 4 years or so we have a dynamic playmaker at RB for 10-12 touches a game. I'm good with that.

Hopefully we can find someone productive for the other 10-12 touches at RB.

I have to agree.  Hes a Leon Washington clone.  If I remember correctly, leon was a 4th round pick too.

Hes got leon washington/darren sproles type abilities.  Hes not a true #1.  I could see him and perine splitting the majority of the carries this year.

Dont get me wrong though.  He is going to be dynamite for us!

Carter is a big play back.  In 2020 he lead the nation with 29 carries of 20+ yards.  And has good receiving skills too.  A very good complement to the other backs.  

So...along with Moore...Carter is another explosive weapon for this WCO.  Add to these two...Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, Keelan Cole, and Jamison Crowder.  Jets offense is no longer a pushover. 

Be even better if Herndon decided to play up to his talents.  Maybe the signing of Kenny Yeboah will help Herndon decide.  Cause this offense is just a productive TE away from being a good one.

We could call that combo ... The Tortoise and the Hare.

Mjd was a bowling ball... This guy is not... Ray Rice might be closer to comparison... But Mc would need to put on 20 pounds... Mjd was like 235 and the same height... This guy is barely 200...

So he will never be Mjd but has a chance to be elite. 

Their games are not that similar

Absolutely 100% happy with the Michael Carter (RB) pick!!!!

Can't wait to see him zip through the gap created by Becton/AVT and hit the 2nd gear.

MJD’s weight in college was 206-210. That’s what I’m getting online.

ive been watching a bunch of games, Javonte is def the more prototype back (he just looks like one of those denver backs)....Carter will need to be used more strategically...kind of remind me of a rich mans leon washington.

Agree 100%.  MoJo was a straight up beast, legs like tree trunks, his power, quickness and top end speed was rare. I dont want put that on Carter, I dont see it.  Leon?  The guy who picked him, spot on.  I think they're very similar.

His stop - start - cut ability is crazy.   Plus his catch abilities are very good

Hes going to be fun to watch

Leon was really really good. If he's Leon then we struck gold in the 4th round...again.
