Link: PFF Profiles Chris Johnson

It doesn’t sound like anything is imminent in respect of Chris Johnson, who is reportedly in New York today, but with no plans to visit the Jets.

Over at PFF, they profile Johnson’s career so far in detail, giving an insight into what he might still be capable of. Here’s part of their conclusion:

If Johnson’s breakaway ability is declining, then the smart play would appear to be pairing him with a powerful runner to wear the opposition down, bringing Johnson in when they are tired and more likely to make a mistake. Not an unreasonable thought process, but the question becomes how much does Johnson rely on those poor plays by opposing defenses?

Multiple sources continue to claim that the Jets are “interested” in Johnson “at the right price”, but it remains to be seen whether they will make a move for him.

People on here need to be backing up what they are saying about players, with ACTUAL STATS. Not gut feelings. You ain't longtime football executives, so no one cares what your gut thinks.

Mock Draft day here on the Blog so.....here I go again! This one I really like and think would be an amazing Draft for us.


#18 Odell Beckham Jr. WR

#49 Kelvin Benjamin WR

#80 Troy Niklas TE

#104 Charles Sims RB

#115 Antone Exum CB

#137 Lamin Barrow LB

#154 Brandon Thomas OG

#195 Nevin Lawson CB

#209 Tyler Starr LB

#210 Jeff Matthews QB

#213 Kirby Van Der Kamp P

#233 Larry Webster DE/OLB


Gotta love the offensive haul and some promising guys on D....Exum and Lawson are the type of CB's Rex really likes.

I am deeply hurt. I can't believe you peeps don't like my word "Ganggrels!"   I will try to come up with something new. I was so hurt, that I fell down the stairs and my shoes fell off.

@benmoz  I can say what I darned well please. I could care less if you read my posts or not, but some people, like myself, are interested in how other people feel about certain players.

Stats lie...decker had 85 catches the last two years and 1000 yards in each. Only 5 players did that. So by actual stats he would be a top 5 wide out in your book?

@a57se  If we've landed Benjamin and Beckham, I would rather take a corner there than Niklas.

@a57se  No way is Benjamin going to be there at 49 tho

@a57se  I'm pretty sue Thomas tore his ACL...I think I'll pass on him. I want Calvin Pryor at 18. Otherwise no other complaints...

@bradysucks  See the thing is you're assuming that they are just going to forget about Nelson and Hill, which there is no way they will do.


They aren't drafting 2 WRs in the first 2 rounds. In fact that would be a bad move. We have Kerley so where are you putting Robinson on the field?

Tequila Joe

@bradysucks  I have a bad feeling about Robinson. He has Stephen Hill bust potential written all over him. I know he was more productive than Hill in college but my gut is saying stay away.

@bradysucks  

I am pretty sure you will be able to get Niklas in the 3rd round at 80 but I seriously doubt Allen Robinson will be there at 49..........

Hill is a power back, not sure that is what we really need in MM's Offense.

@a57se @benmoz  I mean, I don't know you at all, but just by simply looking at your mock draft below, I can see your gut told you that Benjamin and Nicklas will be there at 49 and 80 respectively.


I personally guarantee you on the record, that at least one if not both of those are wrong (they will be taken before those picks).


And that's not my gut, that's me watching patterns of players (specifically offensive players) being drafted higher than expected almost exclusively the last few years. 

benmoz

@robby7  Of course you take the extreme of what I'm saying... typical.


I never said throw out observation completely. He clearly had the best QB in the game throwing to him for 2 years straight. And tons of other weapons around him to open up the field.


I said BACK UP what you're saying with stats. Not look at stats, and draw rash conclusions.


Like, what was the point of your comment here? 


See here's what I take from the stats you referenced: 85 catches = Decker can catch the damn ball. That's something that we haven't had in a top wideout for a while.

@Tequila Joe @a57se 

Why do you think Thomas would be available in the 5th round?

You are getting one of the top G prospects for a 5th rounder. That is called value, like what SF did with Lattimore in 2013.

You're on a role . Ive been trying to tell these clowns(want to draft 8 WR) that we have too many WRs but could not word to where it gets through the thickness.

You're like Brendan, when ppl talk of guts or feelings. Why so sensitive

@Tequila Joe Coming from someone who has watched every single game of Robinson's career(including half of it in person), his game is in NO WAY similar to Stephen Hill. I would consider Robinson a similar style of player to Anquan Boldin or Eric Decker to be honest. Hill was similar to Calvin Johnson or D Thomas, but he had nowhere near the accomplishments in College that Robinson had


/rant

@Tequila Joe @bradysucks  In  what way???? He has 177 career catches, Stephen Hill had 49. 


But it's not that he was even more productive than Hill in college, Because by definition of "productive" Hill was more productive with less catches.


However, the reason hill can't catch the ball for us is because he probably couldn't on a regular basis in college either.


The only reason the Jets drafted him so high is because he had a bunch of long catches (like a ton of long catches, but clearly that didn't work out).


Your gut? .... Let me guess, your gut called the Gholston bust.

@a57se @bradysucks  



You may be right......but I'd think if the Jets had THE BALLSS to draft offense in the first 4 rounds that the players I listed above would dramatically improve the team's scoring........I like Niklas.....not sure I agree Niklas is there in round 3 but I'd take him if he was happily......The Big 6 foot 7 inch TE from Iowa can catch and block which is a positive (Fiedorwicz)

For some reason you only show 2 4th round picks...we have three with the supplemental.

@a57se @bradysucks  


Rumour has it Jaylen Watkins(if motivated properly and taught properly) could be the sleeper pick of this draft at CB.......



a57se

@bradysucks

His hernia surgery will prevent him from working out for teams before the draft.....maybe that won't have any impact on his draft position but the third round is a real possibility for him. If we can't get Niklas, I would like Fiedorowicz but he might be had with the first pick in the 4th.

Jaylen Watkins is Sammies brother! Not really sure he fits what we do on Defense......seems better suited to a zone scheme.
