Too bad we couldn’t grab Tyrod “the Placeholder” Taylor
Jets draft Michael Carter, subsequently draft Michael Carter II. Solid.
Jets are gonna load the boat on special teams.
Saw this interview earlier today after they drafted UNC Michael Carter. Pretty funny they draft Duke Michael Carter.
Timestamp is 3:57 of the video.
Giants take RB Gary Brightwell out of Arizona with their first 6th round pick.
Yup. Since they're already looking at special teams guys, I hope they take a flier here on the kicker out of Miami with this last 6th rounder.
Anyone know anything about why Trey Smith (Guard out of Tennessee) is falling? I see on Twitter that he's right pissed about it, and if he doesn't have injury/personality red flags, that could be a real steal of a pick here.
Booooo you stole that from reddit. (idc if you did or didn't I'm just playing bc this same thing showed up there at about the same time. It's reasonable to think more than one person thought of this prevalent meme)
I feel like I'm generally "meh" on the whole Jets draft but that I'm probably being harsh. I like the individual players, I just would have taken a different tack.
Regardless, I give Douglas a lot of credit as it's clear they had a plan--build out the offense, then build depth at DB and LB--and they stuck to it.
I stole the idea from Twitter but, to my credit, I already had the image saved on my phone.
The Giants had a very good draft and they are set for 2022 as well.
Apparently has issues with clots in his lungs and teams weren't able to get proper medical reports on him.
Chiefs just drafted him though at the end of the 6th round.
Damn Chiefs. They keep taking the O-linemen I want for the Jets (I'm 100% convinced that Creed Humphrey is going to be a pro-bowl center within the next few years. Not this coming season, but definitely before the end of his rookie contract).
Packets will be awful without Rodgers. Lions will continue to be awful with Jared Goff.
Current conference odds:
If Rodgers doesn't return to the packers the bears will be favorites to win the North. I'll trust the odds makers over internet talking heads any day.
Trust the odds makers. I certainly dont trust the Bears to do anything significant next year with the 3rd toughest schedule.
In fact I’d probably throw a little money on the Vikings at those odds and hope Cousins has a monster year. That division is a crapshoot if Rodgers is traded.
I don't really buy into the rankings of schedule toughness especially when teams in the sane division have essentially the sane schedule.
i won’t trust a Jets fan who puts this much effort into where the Giants #1 will land. We all know some in the fan base have genetic hicup.
eh, right side of the OL is a concern. Great draft though
Cut me some slack my only bright spot is the Knicks!
I really liked the Jets first four picks, late rounds are basically dart throws, hopefully you get some special teams contributors early, and 1 or 2 grow into rotation/starters.
Draft a young QB (round 1)
Surround the young QB with as much talent as you can (rounds 1-4)
Build a defense by taking flyers on players with elite speed and athleticism and see who sticks (rest of draft)
Feels weird that the Jets finally have a leadership group that knows the blueprint for winning in today's NFL.
I liked Alex Smith before he retired... Foles is probably the best bet right now. Late round pick or wait for him to get cut... doubt Chicago carries Dalton, Foles, and Fields
Foles is probably ideal...
Next best bet for the Jets might be Mullens who was non-tendered in SF if LaFleur thinks he has a good grasp of the system and can understand the situation (backup or maybe short term placeholder). Blaine Gabbert is another option. I know he played for SF but I can't remember if he ever played under Shanahan - probably not a must, but just an additional asset to have another guy around who gets it. He's also 31 while Mullens is 26. Gabbert probably realized he's a backup... unknown if Mullens would have issues playing second fiddle at 26.
To me Im cool with Morgan as Jets backup. Dont care if he sucks either. The team is set to lose still. 8-8 is optimistic (Though POs would not shock me at all)
The division is just brutal and you have to expect growing pains with a ton of new ploayers from FA and the draft the last two seasons. Plus new coaches
So if QB1 goes down on a team like this it's not big deal to me if there's this solid vet or untested backup there to step in bc we'll prob still just lose similar to last year with flacco.
Now a QB mentor like Josh M. is great but idk that any of the obvious backup QBs out there could really serve that function. Damn sure not Gabbert. I just have a feeling they'll at least reach out to Alex Smith in some capacity
