Who are the four starters?  How long do they have to start for?  Idzik's 2013 draft had 6 starters and it kind of sucked.  One is a punter.  The CB remains to be seen.  The WR and S look like they will contribute but don't look to be starters.  I don't even think the LT can be 100% counted as a win yet.  

The 2016 Jets draft had four rookie starters (plus a fifth UDFA starter in Robby) when looked through this lens of counting a punter as a starter.

Looking back there isn’t one above average player drafted. But hey, look at all them rookie starters; plus remember how, after his rookie season, many assumed Burris was going to be a starting CB2 in 2017 basically because he intercepted a pass late in his rookie season. And even Hackenberg didn’t play as a rookie only because they were bringing him along slowly “the right way” to ensure he wouldn’t turn into David Carr.

Let's do it again! 6 players from that 7 round draft will be playing a contributing role on this years team.   4 of them starting: Becton, Hall, Huff, Mann 2 exp

You do realize he drafted these players when Gase was still the coach? If you're going to go full troll, don't make yourself look stupid. 

Players need to fit the coaches system. 

Objectively speaking. Douglas first Draft was unspectacular. But i think he did a lot better with his 2nd draft.

And in general like what he is doing. He Seems to be building from the trenches out. And putting a focus on offense. I haven't been this in tune with a gm in 20 years. Maybe Douglas isn't all that he's cracked up to be. But he is light years better than what we have had recently. Give him more time.

Atleast he has the right idea. If it doesn't work out it doesn't work out. But it's far too early to tell IMO. This isn't a Jon idzik situation where EVERYONE knew he was terrible.

many of the folks that refuse to admit Joe's first draft was poor say you cant evaluate a pick just after one year -if that is an accurate statement then why has Joe already cut some of these player?

I mean surely a GM would know that it takes a few years before you can evaluate players so why didnt Joe wait on the guys he cut?

 

If you gave an order that Private Santiago wasn't to be touched, and your orders are always followed, then why would Private Santiago be in danger? Why would it be necessary to transfer him off the base?

  1. Is the thought here that in 2016 it didn't work out so it can't now?
  2. That in 2016 we should have prematurely judged the draft class as being bad?
  3. That we should take each draft class on its own and take our time to determine if it's good or not but see how it actually plays out?

I always assumed the "3 years" thing was for outsiders - draftniks, fans, etc. The staff sees more from a guy in one practice than we see in a year, and they have a hundred practices a year. If you watch every snap of every preseason and regular season game, you're seeing, what, like a dozen plays from a rookie who didn't immediately break out?

the reality ,which some refuse to accept even though Joe already has ,  the players were not good and all of the time in the world would not help. 

p.s I hope Joe's second draft turns out to be historically good but his first one was not ..

 

Just wondering if you were critical of the Quinnen Williams pick last year this time?   And he got a training camp his rookie season.

Give Douglas another year and lets see where all these kids are.

So we have a GM who isn’t a time traveller. We are doomed.

Douglas will be judged on Zach. If Wilson becomes a Star, any sh*tty draft picks will be unimportant.

Look at Belichick some of his drafts have been horrible. He had Brady so it covered many sins. I’m not saying Wilson is Brady, just a Franchise QB makes everything thing better.

If Wilson’s sucks JD will be gone in two years.

It may turn out to be bad, and every last GM ,if they last a few years will have a bad draft

Proof that you truly can't judge a draft after one year ... whether praising it or killing it.

Let's hope the trajectory for our 2020 class looks better this time next year than the 2016 class did after 2 years. Though it's interesting to look at all the players picked around where we got Lee that year ... Karl Joseph, Corey Coleman, Shaq Lawson, Josh Doctson, Laquon Treadwell, Paxton Lynch. Quite bereft of talent all in.

Not that I don’t agree with you, but my post was more that one doesn’t sole judge a draft as successful based on how many initial starters there were.

Calvin Pryor was a starter for his first 2 seasons, bfd.

After week 1 of his 3rd season as starter, some were hoisting the I’m Right trophy regarding Lee, posting PFF rankings that kept them warm & snuggly for another month or two. Meanwhile after 3 NFL seasons of starting experience by age 24, he’s been just on special teams, the practice squad, or an outright unsigned FA since turning 25.

In other words, he was only starting because of the draft pick investment in him combined with the team basically having no other LBers to play in his place anyway (I mean, his rookie year we were using a 300-pound, gap-shooting DT as a LB ffs).

So drafting an early “starter” can be a great thing, but it can be a meaningless thing once context is given. It’s too early to tell if these early-starting draft picks will be worth keeping in that role once the roster isn’t so thin & the team is another year removed from tear-down mode.

What in the world are you talking about?  His coach for the first draft was Adam Gase, not Saleh.   Um... that was a different head coach with a different system (if Gase had any system at all) from the current head coach, for that first draft, right?  

You seem very confused.

I would think even you should be able to figure out that the coaching staff is different this year than last year. The 2020 draft would have been with input from Gase and his staff and the 2021 draft would have been with input from Saleh and his staff.

/end thread.  OP is criticizing GM for not filling draft to fit his coach's system because of current cuts, but fails to acknowledge those picks were for a differen't coach's system.  duh

Adams Gases system is preparing the draft picks for their next team by breaking them down like some weird boot camp.
