Jets should try to keep all their picks if possible seeing how  Idzik did not trade up, might as well as develop them and see if in a year or 2 any of these guys can be NFL players, then after if any don't develop cut them, even Boyd stick him on the PS for now.

I know the jets don't have the balls to cut Wilson or hill, but it needs to be done.

A bit surprised that Schum didn't get another shot. I expect they'll keep an eye out for punters. It would really be nice if they can get an upgrade there.

@Kyle Suta  Wilson can probably at least be traded for a low pick of course, but he can still be used for nickel and dime packages

Cut Wilson and keep who exactly?

@Christopher Lewis With 90  guys in camp, they assign some double numbers so everybody gets a number. They give one to a guy on the offense (white) and one on the defense (green), since they wear the same color all through camp. It's only confusing during PS games when they all wear the real unis --  you see a guy with a certain number running around the field while the guy you're used to thinking of with that number works on the other side of the ball… But, remember, the Turk comes at the end of camp and clears out all the people with double numbers.

@Christopher Lewis @metjetnet It was doubly confusing because both guys have dreads that hang down over the name on the back of the jersey, so without seeing their faces, I was never really sure on special teams who was making the plays.
