J. Smooth 5pts I want Anthony Barr. I don't care what position he plays, he looks like Aldon Smith without the bombs. J. Smooth 5pts There's good reason to be happy folks, here are 18 guys I'd be happy with the Jets drafting, meaning I'm guaranteed to be happy Thursday night.ClowneyWatkinsMackBarrEvansEbronBeckhamLeeA.

Big-time value spot. Teams looking for a WR may want to jump #Jets." Hazard2012 5pts A rainy hump day mock, with Jets trading down to 27 w/NO for their third rounder, and a small move down w/GB in the 3rd round for another 4th.

Marvel 5pts @J. Smooth Smith ain't the same without the bombs. Cordell C 5pts @57 wouldn't mind that draft Marvel 5pts @a57se no trade ups 57....just no. Hazard2012 5pts @a57se Have no problem with Cooks or Beckham in first. After that you've lost me. We don't have the right mix of picks to move up economically, and Fuller simply isn't worth that kind of cost. Too many other options at CB still on board -- Watkins, Baptiste, McGill, Exum, etc. who could do just fine. I like Fiedo, but he's a poor man's consolation prize for not landing one of the top TE's, and he's really no upgrade over Cumby, which is the point of drafting a TE at all. J. Smooth 5pts @a57se Five picks to move up 15 spots in the second round? And Tajh Boyd at 137? Why. Just why. Bent moderator 5pts @Marvel The smokescreen is working perfectly! Disgruntled Jets Fan 5pts @Marvel House Of Pain - "Jump Around" (Official Music Vid…: http://youtu.be/KZaz7OqyTHQ Brendan 5pts @Marvel ANARCHY!!!! J. Smooth 5pts @Hazard2012 Three guys named Thomas? Equipment manager's gon be pissed. Disgruntled Jets Fan 5pts @Hazard2012 waaaaaay too many picks. Bent moderator 5pts @Brendan @Marvel Punt protector? Marvel 5pts @Brendan QB2 Brendan 5pts @a57se Nope, you're the only fan with access to those. Tell us what to think, please! Pat d 5pts 57Very realistic draft resultsI take it Lee is gone by 18LOL MPTG_Frank 5pts 9ers got the stuff to it.... Hazard2012 5pts @J. Smooth @Hazard2012 Yeah...I caught that, too, after I was done. Plus Thomas Hornsey. Could be a law firm. Hazard2012 5pts @a57se I can only pick them as the simulator offers them, but I guess as lots of players rise others fall. Yankey could be one of them. Always looking for road-graders on our OL. My choice was between Lee and Moncrief...all the other likely WR's already gone. Knowing how high I am on Donte, and how doubtful I am re Lee, it was a no-brainer. Caraun Reid is a highly rated but developmental talent that might be a nice chip for Idzik to have...remember our conversations a few days ago re the need for quality depth at DT, maybe trading Ellis, etc. Brandon Thomas and Colvin start on IR here, so aren't on this year's roster, but both could be top quality, multiple position options in future. You just questioned the lack of Jet interest in RB below, but if they have doubts about Powell or want to plan for future then Seastrunk might be nice fit. DAT is what DAT is, and doesn't really count as a workhorse back. juunit 5pts @a57se According to what's his face that's what happened this year. But there's no data for other years, like 2012 when Watkins wasn't a big factor. That 57% also only represents Watkins' receptions and not all of Boyd's throws. Whereas a real big portion of all Smith's passes were of the screen variety. Brendan 5pts @Marvel I don't think so? Boyd threw more of those easy completions. Over 50% of Watkins' passes were screens, weren't they? Austin actually went downfield on his routes. Marvel 5pts @Brendan rather talk 2 yard passes to Austin?? Can't defend Geno then talk down Boyd... make ya look silly :-) juunit 5pts @BrendanLower completion percentage by a couple points. Also threw down field more. I'd say they're fairly similar in terms of consistency with accurate passes coming out. I'd probably give Boyd the edge though. He lived on deep passes to Watkins/Hopkins. Brendan 5pts @Marvel Isn't he a far less accurate QB coming out of college than Geno was, when you stop talking about behind-the-LOS screens to a top-5 pick, I mean? Marvel 5pts @Bent @Brendan@Marvel Give him 12 games to show he can be decent, I mean not a pick 6 machine .... like with Geno :-) Brendan 5pts @Marvel Lol. koala 5pts @Brendan @a57se if you have read Collision Low Crossers DT (went to USC) is pretty staunchly opposed to UCLA players - thinks they are soft. didnt sound like he was joking either Cordell C 5pts I think fuller is better than denard Cordell C 5pts @57 rather have dat over archer though Brendan 5pts @Hanknaples Why is this directed at me? Brendan 5pts @Bent Boyd looks like he's just a more muscular guy and can probably add weight. I don't think Manziel can do the same, but who knows. Bent moderator 5pts @Brendan @juunit He's got like an inch and 10 pounds on Manziel. Is it unrealistic to suggest that maybe Manziel will become Johnny Fullback in a few years time? Brendan 5pts @Bent Wat. Bent moderator 5pts @Brendan @juunit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o386Zv5L3u8 Brendan 5pts @juunit I might have mentioned this, but I basically programmed myself to dislike Boyd because of an insufferable Clemson fan that I know, so I started trolling this kid by calling Boyd "Clemson's Michael Robinson" and saying he's going to be a fullback. But Clemson actually used Boyd as a short-yardage back, he's short and compact....I can see it happening. Boyd the FB. You heard it here first. juunit 5pts @BrendanIt'd be an interesting debate which QB had the strongest arm if we did draft him at least. Plus, we'd be able to say YEAAAAAAH BOOOOOOOOOOOOYD! Brendan 5pts @juunit I honestly don't care about the team taking him, just not in the 4th. juunit 5pts @BrendanYeah, we'll see. But if you really don't want him you should probably hope he does go in the 3rd or at least early 4th. Brendan 5pts @juunit Ah, found it. That straw poll was taken in January, well before the stuff I linked to. And as we know, under the microscope, Boyd's flaws were being picked apart. I think he's closer to a 6th rounder than a 4th rounder at this point, but who knows. It only takes one team to fall in love with a guy and overdraft. Brendan 5pts @a57se Yes. Uninformed. "With three compensatory picks in the sixth round its easy to see Boyd being selected by the franchise."- Tony Pauline, the guy who is running the "Rex told Tajh he'll draft him" train. http://www.ganggreennation.com/2014/4/25/5654252/2014-nfl-draft-buzz-jets-like-tahj-boydAn entire article about how Gruden loves Boyd....as a 6th rounder: http://www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/2014/04/jon_gruden_clemsons_tajh_boyd.htmlKiper says fifth or sixth round for Tajh Boyd. #Clemson— Willie Smith (@willie_t_smith) February 6, 2014http://athlonsports.com/breaking-down-tajh-boyd-and-his-2014-nfl-draft-prospectsSorry I don't have time to sit and read every single report, but please shut up with the condescension. It's not like I pulled it out of thin air, jesus. And you wonder why people don't like you. juunit 5pts @a57seWell they could be wrong. But they're pretty good with rumors and info kind of stuff. juunit 5pts @BrendanIt's in their draft rumors page. It was a little while ago so you'll have to scroll down a bit. Brendan 5pts @juunit When was this? I saw reports like 2 weeks ago talking about how he was being seen as a "6th - UDFA" type of player. juunit 5pts @BrendanWalterfootball asked a bunch of teams about Boyd. Most said the 3rd round. I'd think if he's there in the 4th it's a lock we'd take him. Brendan 5pts @a57se But he stinks, so it wouldn't be good value in the 4th. Brendan 5pts @Bent In the 6th round, hopefully. Bent moderator 5pts @a57se @J. Smooth Tony Pauline apparently reported that Rex told Boyd he'd "try to find a way to draft him". Hazard2012 5pts @Disgruntled Jets Fan @Hazard2012 @a57se The idea that ALL draft picks have to make a squad doesn't make any sense. That's not reality. Every team has wasted picks every draft. That doesn't matter. What matters is improving your team. Disgruntled Jets Fan 5pts @Hazard2012 @Disgruntled Jets Fan@a57se then they were wasted picks that could've been used in better ways. no way we are actually drafting 12. Hazard2012 5pts @Disgruntled Jets Fan @a57se I don't expect all twelve to make the roster. That's true of every draft class. Competition will sort all that out. But a lot of these guys will make the team, or make the ones who do make better for having been drafted. Disgruntled Jets Fan 5pts @a57se @Disgruntled Jets Fan only 12 roster spots still not happening. Hazard2012 5pts @a57se @Disgruntled Jets Fan Yes, as above. Hazard2012 5pts @a57se @Hazard2012 That he dropped more passes than he caught, and didn't catch any at all this past season? Not a problem to me. I've said before that wasn't his role in the Baylor O, and he's showed nice, soft hands in his combine and workouts. More importantly, with CJ and now DAT in the fold, re my draft, I don't care if he can catch the ball. He might have fresher and better legs than Powell. I would have taken Sims or Freeman first, be they were gone.
