Alka Posted March 21, 2022 Share Posted March 21, 2022 I believe the Jets biggest need going into the draft, now that the first wave of free agency is over, remains wide receiver. Edge is also a significant need, but Hutchinson will surely be gone by #4, and concerns about the type of player Thibs is and if he fits into the culture of the Jets might prevent the Jets from drafting him as high as the #4 pick. Namely, does Thibs love football? Is he a "all gas and no brake" guy? I have seen many simulated mock drafts that have the wide receiver, Garrett Wilson, be taken before the #10 pick. If he is the #1 wide receiver on the Jets board, then why not pick him at the #4 spot? Edge guys will still be there at #10, and I'm not sure after Hutchinson if we can't get a good one with the #10 pick. Drake London has different skill sets than Garrett Wilson, and if seems the way I look at things that he will be available at #10. How do the Jets feel about him? If we are to move ahead with Becton, and I hope that we do, then it just doesn't make sense to me to draft Ekwonu, unless the Jets have given up on Becton. Fant just got a 3 year extension, and he played very well at left tackle, enough so that Saleh said it was an open competition with Becton. If Fant wins that competition, then the obvious choice is to insert Becton at right tackle. We do need a depth tackle, and the Jets can certainly get a good one in the second round. Picking Garrett Wilson at #4 may seem to be a stretch for a lot of fans, but we need a #1 wide receiver, and if the Jets have him as their #1 guy, than in my view, he must be the pick at #4. To load up on tight end, and to not have a #1 wide receiver going into next season is just unforgivable to me, and I hope we don't blow it when Joe Douglas has the opportunity to seal up that spot. Zach Wilson needs another target, and the Jets need more skill players who can make plays. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
