McShay and Jeremiah both have Jets taking a corner at pick 10

Maybe I am wrong, certainly, but I don't see either pick they forecast as being accurate. 

Don't think we're going O-line at 4, don't think we drafting CB in the 1st or 2nd honestly.

Trouble is that JD is so spotty so far at building this franchises talent-pool, I honestly don't know what he might do.  He doesn't have much of a direction so far in my book.

Corners don’t matter when you can’t get first downs

True, but you can't "will" someone to become talented enough to spend #10 pick. 

I feel like there's this hamster wheel 50% of you are stuck on. There is NO blue chip WR worth taking at 10. Short of Namath-guaranteeing you, there'll be a slew of guys with higher grades from Joe/Rob than any "first down" getter there. 

First 2 picks is highly likely to be some combo of Edge/OL/DB

The further away we get from the season, the more the fanbase sells themself on defense. They also seem to forget how brutally bad the offense was. Give me guys who have the ball and score touchdowns. Where is the Iowa State back projected to go? I’d rather him at 10 than a corner. Maybe extreme, but a back at least can move the needle a bit. A corner does nothing. Douglas doesn’t have time to be drafting corners. Points please.

You want to talk about bad football takes from @football guy then go advocating taking a good, not great, running back at pick 10?  Sheeeeeesh.

Again. There's no WR/Hero playmaker on offense worth taking at #10. What's dumber than ignoring offense? Taking second round talent at #10 because. 

My concern is that our Offense will remain pathetic in 2022 without a material influx of talent.

And that our Defense will not make any difference, even if we invest all four top picks into it, in 2022.

Lets be serious, what do we think is going to happen if we invest heavily in Defense?  That we're gonna jump from "historic worst Defense ever" to top 5?  More likely we make a small improvement, from 32nd to 21-25th or so.  Big deal.

Meanwhile, with the usual gap-filler FA's JD seems to love, the Offense with Zach will remain in the mid to late 20's in the ranking, and we'll still be debating the age-old Jets Fan debate, is it the QB, the O-line, the lack of Weapons, or some combination of all three that is keeping us in the cellar in the AFC. 

Just feels like it's time for this franchise to be brave and try winning with something other than Defense.  You can argue "value at pick" all you like, but "winning the Draft value chart" itself is not the goal, winning football games is.  I think our only route to winning is to continue to deeply invest in the Offense, especially while Zach is QB.  Investment in Defense, IMO, will simply not pay enough in dividends in W/L's.

I disagree tbh. If I’m Douglas im excluding defensive players from my board until round 3 unless it’s an edge rusher. When it’s week 5 and Vince Amith and Berrios are the starting receivers the corner we drafted isnt going to look great for Douglas job security.

I'd argue a balanced approach is ok (all depending on FA of course):

Round 1:  An Edge and an Offensive Weapon/Playmaker is fine.

Round 2:  A LB/CB and an Offensive Weapons/Playmaker/O-lineman is fine.

A lopsided approach (say, a Safety (which alot of folks seem to want) and a CB, or an Edge and a DT) is what I'd strongly argue against.

At minimum our approach needs to be either balanced or Offensive-leaning, minimum.

I say "depending on FA", but I have zero belief that JD is going to solve any major Offensive concerns in FA.  We're not signing a huge-Dollar WR #1, we're not signing all-pro O-linemen, etc.  Gap-Fillers, that is what JD is willing to pay for so far as a GM.

Off topic here, but saw a guy who is probably a fav of yours, Ryan Zimmermann, retired. As a lifelong Mets fan, he was always the guy I hated to see up in a big spot. Was a class act, and even though he's a NAT, I enjoyed watching him play. Well done Ryan.

Shush. You're inviting 500 more pages of how the Jets don't need a single corner drafted ahead of round 5, nor a veteran worthy of more than the vet minimum salary, because zone.

Even when the receiver is in someone's zone there are no coverage skills needed to warrant CBs who can actually cover better once the target's identified, also because zone.

Zone CBs just stand there or move slightly within their zones, don't move to more tightly cover any target in said zone, because zone. Draft a 3rd LT and keep JFM at edge.

That'll improve the offense so much it won't matter if the D is surrendering 30ppg again. 

Also zone.

 

 

 

 

zone

 

This was great man haha it really put me in the zone cause I was just sitting here watching just like how zone cbs play

I’m here as well. The Jets offense needs the defibrillator approach via the draft. This is what happens when your first two drafts yield mediocre to poor results. The offense needs to be drastically better for Douglas to stick around. If he wants to be another Maccagnan then yeah take the corner and the DT or whomever.

Dream scenario is Jets sign a RG in free agency and bring in a big time receiver (Cooper, Ridley).

then in the draft if they can walk away with Thibodeaux and either Stingley or Gardner would completely transform this defense. Especially with Lawson coming back

Dream scenario

JD puts a crowbar in that tight wallet and signs Alex Cappa

Jets draft Ekwonu with number 4,  As much as I would like that, I don't see it happening.  Any GM with two eyes and half a bran can see Ekwonu is the best player in the draft.  The Jags want the best player and they also badly need protection for Lawrence.  So... Probably, Jets wind up with Evan Neal, who can play inside or out.

Jets draft CB Sauce with number 10.  Sauce is not Revis, but he is the ideal type of player for the type of Defense Saleh is fielding.  Sauce is a "football player".  He can cover, tackle, play off the wr in space and also use contact at the line.  

JD finds a trading partner for Becton.  I know that wont happen, but I'd sure like to see them get something for Becton before everyone in the league realizes he's a "Johnny Mitchell"

All these signs pointing to the team highly valuing cb play yet people keep saying the opposite lol 

Pretty much reaching for examples - none of these have anything to do with this Jets team, only individual parts of the team in different situations. The only reason I can see the Jets going corner early is the depth on OL, Edge and Receiver in this draft. If they feel they can get a solid edge guy in the second round or a solid receiver but can't grab a solid corner in the second or third, that would be the reason to go corner. I don't think they will - especially not an injury prone one. All the high picks should be to help Zach or edge IMO.

Improving the d helps Zach. People keep ignoring this fact. When the d can’t get off the field and let’s up 30+ points a game that puts an immense amount of pressure on a young qb to score on every single drive.

or edge and someone like Lloyd. The jets really need a MLB like Harris, they need a tone setter and D leader.  Mosley wont’ be here much longer.  Unless there’s a big trade back i don’t think wr will be taken in round 1, with the caveat they will sign someone worthwhile at wr, and also perhaps at TE.  But, if the pass rushers are gone by 4 they may just take ekongwu. In a few years, when becton is gone if ekongwu is kicking butt nobody here will care that he was taken at 4.  We will only complain if the guy taken at 4 sucks.

The game has changed, there are what a few #1 CBs in this league now and they are still getting beat in the super bowl. 

rams won because they got to burrow

Tampa won the year before because they got to mahommes

Due to league rules CB's have moved down the list of premium players.

If Douglas drafts a CB high this year, his draft last year was an utter flop.

Now if any of these dudes were indeed totally premium players, maybe but they are not.

Alternatively you could say TB and the Rams lost because their OL sucked. It's a combination.  I could see the Jets taking DT in Round 1 like a Perion Winfrey WAY before they would consider a CB. There is a chance they consider Hamilton though. I want WR in round 1 but I am sort of reserved to 1 OL and 1 DL in round 1. Hopefully with a trade down.

You can make this argument both ways. Improving the offense improves the defense, too. They spent way too much time on the field this year and got gassed.

Also easier to design the defense to play in passing situations by building the front, though the offense is far from putting pressure on opposing teams to score so often.

They spend so much time on the field because they couldn’t stop anybody on third down. Nearly every drive took 5+ minutes. That really hurts the offense because they get out of rhythm and if they don’t score it’s an L. Look at the eagles game. The offense was on the field what 2 times in the second half?

The problem is that the top of this draft stinks and there is barely anyone worth the #4 or the #10 pick, doesn't matter if we are talking Wr or Oline or pass rusher or CB.  This is an awful top end of a draft and of course the jets have two top ten picks.

The very best scenario would be the jets being able to trade down with both picks, won;t happen but that would be best scenario.

Its not that I think Jets value CB play. I think they do. Maybe not as much as Pass Rusher but it would be silly to assume that CB somehow doesn't matter. Its that the Jets have 3, maybe 4 promising young CBs they are developing. Hall, Echols, Carter, and to an extent Guidry. Drafting a CB at 10 just doesn't make sense.

Exactly.  

Let the defensive guru Saleh scheme around the lack of D talent.  

Can't scheme around lack of playmakers.

The 2020 draft whiff is still killing the Jets. It’d be easier to understand defense early in this draft if say Whirfs, Lamb, Jefferson or he’ll anyone with a pulse we’re on the team instead.

We loaded up the last 2 years on CBs.

Time to load up on WRs and TEs and Oline help and another RB.

If we're going to go D, get some real LBers and not skinny safeties that we're trying to convert to LB.

Looking at the roster from an outside perspective, CB and S are needs.  Our depth chart shows an opportunity to improve there for certain.  Most guys who churn out mock drafts don't have the time or interest to dig into every team the way we do to ours so it's a knee-jerk 'plug the hole' type of pick.

Free Agency will go a long way to filling in some of the blanks and changing the perception of needs, and thus, the draft projections.  If we sign one starting DB, it will probably shift the focus quickly to other positions.
