Brian Costello picked Pryor as Jets 1st rd pick on Joe and Evan, and the next day he picked Jace Amaro as their 2nd rd pick. Not bad!

WHO DID THEY REALLY WANT?


We know who they got... and we know Idzik complained that many players they had targeted were going off the board before their next pick.  So which players did they really want at each spot?

Just saw a report that the Colts signed 19 UDFA's!!!

That is CRAZY!

Some of you guys are ridiculous....

For years I had to listen to how Sanchez was a good QB

Then it was stories about how Vlad (who never cracked the starting lineup and held a job) was a good blocker

Now the latest player who guys refuse to face facts on is Stephen Hill

Sanchez is gone

Vlad is gone

Hill is next

Hill is a "dad" and a grown man. He is not a kid. If you have to teach a grown man how to catch and run routes in his 3rd NFL season it is a big problem

Look I hope Hill proves me wrong but seeing is believing and everything I've seen from Hill makes me believe he is not a football player.

Ironically, the guy I felt was our best pick isn't being talked about at all.....

7th round LB Trevor Reilly.

This guy could replace Pace by the end of the year if his knee is sound.

Possible Targets in Early 4th Round - Off Board by 104


  • 86 Philly WR J. Huff
  • 90 Indy WR D. Moncrief
  • 91 Arizona WR J. Brown
  • 97 Pittsburgh RB D. Archer

Possible Targets in 3rd Round - Off Board by 80

  • 58 New Orleans CB/FS S. Jean-Baptiste
  • 62 New England QB J. Garoppolo
  • 63 Miami WR J. Landry
  • 65 Houston TE CJ Fiedorowicz
  • 70 San Fran C M. Martin

Possible Targets in 2nd Round - Off Board by #49


  • 38 Tampa TE Sefarian-Jenkins
  • 42 Philly WR J. Matthews 
  • 45 Seattle WR P. Richardson

I'd love to know that answer.....but unless we get to talk to them off the record, I doubt we'll ever know.

@a57se  That's what happens when you only have, what, four picks?

They supposedly tried to move up but couldn't find a trade partner. I think they should have used that strategy to get a better corner than mcdougle in the 3rd.

@mustang66  

Nothing wrong with being upset about the way the draft went down but it would help if you edited your text. The mistakes and grammar make it borderline incoherent.

Hill appeared to be "getting it" when he got injured. He tried to be tough on the intermediate routes. Think he deserves a chance still to make sure not cutting bait on a viable player

No matter what side of the Hill fence you're on, think it's obvious that he either starts upping his game and production this preseason or he's going to be gone by opening day.   The Jet receiving corps is now both highly competitive and crowded.   Hill either shows he belongs there or one of these new guys will eat his lunch and take his roster spot.   It's not complicated.

In general I think our later round selections might be better than done of or middle find selections, in terms of value. I can see done of these guys being productive, where as some of the middle picks could be potential busts.

@a57se  i was going to say something about reilly as well.  wasn't he projected much much higher than 7th.  i hope he's the steal of the draft.  we need better olb play going forward.

@a57se  Why do you feel he's our best pick? I know nothing about him, but from what I've read about him (limited reading) there's something that I really like about him

@a57se  


Mentioned Reilly below as a steal for that late a pick.   His knee is a concern, so too his age, but I can see Rex using him in very versatile roles, and because he's smart, got a nose for the ball and is a good tackler maybe not always as an edge rusher.   Rex might want to try moving him inside.

@a57se I liked what little I read about him. Do you have a preferred article where I could get more info?

@Brendan @a57seWhich is another reason our 3 picks in the 2009 draft will go down in ignominy (although to be fair, we got 3 starters out of it).

@Joseph Rifino  

Wasn't mcdougle the first corner taken in the 3rd, meaning they had their pick of all the remaining day 2 corners? What would moving up have accomplished?

Brendan

@a57se I legitimately don't know what this means: 


we could have drafted Lee and Amaro and then draft make google and round 4.

@Brendan @mustang66  What would be funny is that the receivers that we wanted and didn't take resulted in busts, and Saunders became a pro bowler, lol,

Hill maybe showed signs of getting it earlier on in the year, but he was mired in a slump when he got hurt (two yards in four games).  Having said that, maybe he was hurt earlier and that was what slowed him down over that last month.

@williamg1 @a57se 

Great value and a guy who can contribute right off the bat....how often do 7th rounders do that unless they are given a job like Bihanon last year.

the difference with Reilly is he won't be the lowest rated guy in the league.

@a57se @pcjs@BrendanVery. Maybe I should have used the four picks in 2010 (some even higher quality starters in those last 3 picks!).

@pcjs @Brendan

3 starters? You are using that term loosely for the 2009 draft!

My bad, I think we could have got a 2nd pick in the 2nd round following amaro to draft a better corner,such as Jean-baptiste ahead of NO, who has experience playing press coverage and is bigger, and wasnt injured last year.

@Bent One of the most unexpected and funny lines in any movie, ever. Just had a good laugh, thanks.

"We could have drafted Lee and Amaro and then drafted McDougle in round four".

@Bentn

His knee was giving him problems in OTA's and mini-camp. It never was fully healed.

As he said last fall, he needs to strengthen the muscles around the knee......he didn't have the time to do that last year.....

@Bent @williamg1 @a57se  Wow, I forgot about Pouha. One minute he was playing at a high level, and the next minute he's gone. Miss the big fella.

@a57se  I actually like the idea he's older. I'd imagine that is a big reason why we can expect him to contribute quickly.

@a57se @pcjsI really hate this "blank name" -- makes it look like it's me in this instance.

@a57se@pcjs 

If we hadn't taken three WR's already you'd have a point.

@a57se @pcjs  @a57se @pcjs  Sounds like a back-up OLB... which could be good value in 7th. But there are some interesting guys on the offensive side that have upside potential, and the 7th is not a bad place to take those shots.


Would adding one of these kids to the wide open competition at WR be a reasonable alternative to taking the back-up OLB?

236 Green Bay WR J. Janis


239 Cincy WR J. Wright


240 San Diego WR T. Reese - very interesting kid that may need a year of development and weight-lifting


244 New England WR J. Gallon

@juunit @pcjs@a57seI'd be happy if every one of our draft picks were with the team in five years because of talent! But I do understand how advanced age correlates with declining skill in the NFL and why this would cause you to fall.

@juunit @pcjs

He is the kind of pick you love to have sitting there in the 7th......

@pcjs @a57se 

He fell cause he's old (went on a mission for a couple years) and had an injury. But he can play and he's versatile. It's a very good pick with a 7th rounder. Even if he only plays for us for five years.

@a57se @pcjsThanks, that was helpful. Seems like an awesome pick for the 7th round with litlle risk and high reward. I'm now rooting for this guy!
