NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills

Colon: Mike Evans ‘would be huge for us’, with exclusive audio of the offensive guard

Willie Colon said that a player like Mike Evans “would be huge for us.”

Colon appeared on Jets Nation: Draft Special on SNY, and talked about how a wide receiver could help balance their offensive game.

“With the additions we made – Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and Michael Vick — we need somebody else that’s going to stretch the field for us on the opposite side,” Colon said. All eyes are going to be on Decker, so if we get a guy like Mike Evans, who can go up and get that ball, that would be huge for us.”

Colon also said that he wouldn’t mind having “some horses” in the stable on the offensive line after the draft and they’re focusing on improving their game to help the running backs, specifically Johnson.

“We finished sixth last year. We’re saying to ourselves we’ve got to finish in the top five,” Colon said. “Having Chris Johnson, that home run back, not only adds depth, but scoring points is the name of the game and I think we can help those guys get there.”

Colon told me before the start of SNY’s live coverage that “I’d be interested to see us trade up … and get a star in the making.” Hear his full interview in the clip below.


We’re with Colon.  We’d love to see the Jets move up and take a playmaker, but the likelihood is slim.  Most likely the Jets will stay put and let the draft come to them.

Another great line by Willie Colon when talking about Peyton Manning and Eric Decker,   "He'll make a cheap suit look good."

and

Adam Schein on John Idzik,  A big swing and a miss with the CB's in FA.......and would be stunned and absolutely floored if Darqueze Dennard is there at 18.......but Jets can address CB later in the draft............CB was a big need in FA,  but not a primary area of need in the draft. 

Nobody can talk out of both sides of his mouth better than Adam Schein.  He's a talking contradiction.

if Jets can package their extra picks to move up for Evans it's not bad, but to give up more than our extra picks would kind of hurt

The big question is who do the Phins take

It'll take a lot more than our extra picks to move up to get Evans.   Moving up to say 14, for the Chicago pick, would probably cost us our third and a sixth.    Moving up to 12 would probably take a third, a fourth and a sixth.   


It gets expensive.   I love the guy, but how much is Evans worth more than an ODJ, Cooks or Lee?

The fact that you are agreeing with this "Drama Queen"  confirms my opinion since he's an idiot.
