more excited about Saunders, but Jets have a project they can start working on with Evans

Hopefully, we can package our 5th and 6th get another 4th rounder.  We need to get really good players.  Not just players.

Thinking about it, it makes sense that the Jets take Saunders over Ellington. Bruce is still raw, and needs time. Saunders can play right away.

Good chance that Yankey, Bryant or Desir will be on the board at 115. The Jets have checked off all 4 major needs so far. Now they go BPA with the rest of the 8 picks.

Saunders is a poor man's Brandin Cooks

Like the pick...

They still need to add a WR with length who is physical to play on the outside opposite Decker

Jalen Saunders. Small, but physical. I wanted Ellington, but this is fine.

this guy is smaller than Austin, hope he knows how to avoid being hit

Saunders is Jackson-lite

He is certainly better than Nelson & Hill

Nelson/Hill

Kerley is darkhorse if Saunders is really good, then Kerley outside and Saunders in the slot.

@bradysucks  If you wanted Jackson- he's  the closest thing in the draft. He will play outside

@a57se So do you think he'll play more on the outside or is he really Kerleys replacement?

jenkins

@a57se  I had him in the 5th' YES!! big time deep threat

@Cordell C Awesome.


Instead of drafting a guy earlier who could possibly start immediately, we drafted Jeremy Kerley's replacement.

Not when he could have traded back and gotten one of them anyway.

Kerley on the outside? Saunders has a better chance of playing on the outside

bradysucks

He will be used on special teams....do not think he plays outside...disagree

I like the pick.....

Hard to envision a guy who weighs 160 playing outside but Mayock did say he was tough kid so maybe he can...

Could be a sleeper pick...hope so

Yea I don't think he's that bad but doubt he comes back think the team has turned the page

Yea but kerley is best suited for the slot, he played outside out of necessity. Y do u think wr is such a big need this year?

Im just hoping that Hill turns it around, at only 22-23 yrs old i haven't quit on him

@jetsfan65

Kerley already played on the outside and put up very good numbers in 2012.

I like the pick....Hope the Jets aren't done taking playmakers

@bradysucks  I'm saying he's Jackson-lite. Plays exactly the same way. Not quite as good-but really good and a threat to go all the way. Pretty fearless.

As small and fast as he is I'd imagine he is pretty electric

Can't really compare him to Desean Jackson who had a 1st round grade when he was drafted (even though he was picked in round 2)

This guy is a smaller WR but he seems like a poor man's Jackson or Cooks to me....I do think he will help the offense....Just hope he catches better than Hill & Gates

jenkins

@bradysucks  I think he can play both. More like Jackson plays outside. Electric.

He probably would start of returning punts

The issue is we have taken players when similiar players in skillset were on the board.  It is different if you are talking about a top ten talent vs a 2nd round talent.

But at that point in the draft is their really a big difference between Gaines and McDougle?

You have to play the board and get value and then use those picks to move up.  We could have traded back and then use our 4th rounder and another pick to move into the 3rd round.  You get two really good players instead of one.  

Lastly, the point was not spearate because I was saying we could have traded back and still got one of these players.

@DarrolRayFanClub

My point has been I would take 3 3rd rounders over 3 4th rounders and by packaing picks we could have done it pretty easily.  We have not really played the board great, imo.   That is my larger point and is the one I have been driving home over the last 48 hours.

Everyone needs to stop acting as though the 49er's can make 5 or 6 trades but we could not make one.  Please I like Idzik and have been very reasonable but criticism is okay when you see weaknesses and this has been one weakness I feel has been exposed.
