3rd round pick: LB Anthony Schlegel

Recommended Posts

Uh I can name two: Parcells drafted Lavernues Coles in Round 3 in 2000 and Dumbway drafted Jericho Cotchery in Round 4 in 2004.

Look, a third round pick may not seem all that important but getting value in rounds 3-7 separates the good teams from the bad teams in the NFL.

Jets passed up big strong players they could have stuck into the offensive and defensive lines. Ryan O'Callaghan, Gabe Watson, Jonathan Scott to name a few.

Just how many rookies did you want starting on the OL this year???

And I think you just proved someone else's point when you mentioned Cotchery and Coles. It took several years for them to really turn it on. Criticizing Schlegel after only 7 games isn't fair to him IMO.

I agree that a NT would have been nice...looking back on it now after seeing DRob struggle at times and his two backups go on the IR.

I'm just not willing to pass judgement on a player after only 7 games in the league.
