People forget we killed the 2021 draft as well. We have now had two excellent drafts in a row.

I wonder what the correlation between those scores and the ten year evals are?  I remember thinking that the Browns crushed all of their drafts in the mid 2010s (along with all the pundits), but instead they produced some of the worst results ever assembled in the modern era.

there's everything good about this draft.  the jets got some pretty good players who fill immediate positions of need.  i can see all 4 of the top picks staring or playing significant minutes from game one.  maybe wilson will push mims so he becomes a better players.  same thing with williams and zuniga.  we need to see these guys on the field.

Loves this guy as a jet, not resigning him was the beginning of the end of Rex Ryan era

Switching out Braylon and Cotchery for Plaxico and Mason was very symbolic of what went wrong with the team in that time period.

In a sure sign of the coming apocalypse.  Walterfootball has notoriously been hard on the Jets and always ready to wash Belichick's balls.  Well not so much this year.

 New York Jets: A+ Grade

Goals Entering the 2022 NFL Draft: Zach Wilson was horrible in his rookie season. He needs as much help as possible, so the Jets need to give him better weapons and blocking. The defense must receive multiple upgrades as well.

2022 NFL Draft Accomplishments: Joe Douglas had an amazing draft. Somehow, Douglas arguably obtained the best cornerback, receiver and running back in this draft class, and that haul doesn't even include a dynamic edge rusher!

The Jets got off to a fine start with Ahmad Gardner, who should have been chalk at No. 4. He'll help a horrible secondary, while Garrett Wilson, expected by some teams to go in the top eight, was a decent value at No. 10 overall. He'll provide Zach Wilson with a much-needed dynamic weapon, as will Breece Hall, who was an excellent choice in the second round. Hall is a great receiver out of the backfield, so Wilson will love having him at his disposal.

The best pick Douglas made was at No. 26 when he traded up for Jermaine Johnson. The Florida State star inexplicably fell after being projected in the top 10. Johnson dropped because of character concerns, but nothing could've been bad enough to have him plummet from the 8-12 range to No. 26. The Jets' edge rush has struggled for quite some time, and Johnson's presence will go a long way in bolstering it.

The Jets' 2022 season will depend on Wilson's progression, but Douglas' great drafting means that the young quarterback won't have any excuses. Douglas has put Wilson in the best possible position to succeed in his second year.

 

and then just for fun:

 New England Patriots: D- Grade

Goals Entering the 2022 NFL Draft: The Patriots traded for DeVante Parker, so they're not hurting for receiving help like they were entering the offseason. Still, they could stand to add a wideout and a new blocker. Otherwise, the Patriots will have to fill some needs on the defensive side of the ball.

2022 NFL Draft Accomplishments: In the eternal words of Dr. Samuel Becket, "Oh boy." What was Bill Belichick smoking when he entered draft weekend? Most of his picks made no sense. His opening-round choice, Cole Strange, was a third-round prospect at best. Tyquan Thornton, taken in the second frame, was projected to go at some point on Day 3.

And yet, that was just the beginning of the calamity known as the Patriots' 2022 draft class. Two selections were spent on running backs when New England already had a log jam at the position on the roster. A fourth-rounder was used on Bailey Zappe, a quarterback with no upside.

I thought hard about giving the Patriots an F/Millen for their overall grade, but I decided on a D- because Belichick at least tried to help Mac Jones by giving him several new blockers and a receiver with some upside. He also tried to fix the secondary with third- and fourth-round selections. It wasn't all a complete failure, but it was close.

The window just closed.  Alot of our key players (Scott,  LT, Santonio) were done.  Others like Revis, Brick and Mangold had peaked and were on the downslope.  Sanchez had flaws in his game that we could no longer hide.

Well, if you're good at drafting and FA acquisition you can continue to build the team around the good young players and replace the older ones who leave. The window doesn't have to close if you're good at your job.

The "window closed" because we sucked at drafting and made critical mistakes in FA. As far as critical mistakes in FA swapping out Braylon and Cotchery for Plaxico and Mason serves as strong examples of poor talent and culture moves that are symbolic of the general decline. Obviously these moves aren't why we started to suck.

The two biggest mistakes were giving Santonio the extension and the tebow trade which turned the Jets into a 3-ring circus.

 

The tebow trade also meant no Russell Wilson in round 2 who Terry Bradway had been pounding the table for.

One guy was talking about really liking our 4th round picks.
