azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.

ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

SO we've had all this talk about drafting Tight ends, offensive and defensive lineman, db's, and tweeners. Now the question becomes who do the jets draft in the first round in April. What do you guys think because I have no idea.

I want them to draft Jarvis Moss. He would be a good pick for us, 6-6 height and runs fast.

iagree.gif Moss is the shit. If not Moss then perhaps Michael Bush dependant on his combine or Carriker if he falls or Okoye.

it is very obvious what our PRIMARY need is for this team. however, who we draft depends on what we do in FA. our primary need is obviously dline. whoever does not think this is not educated enough to have a valid opinion. if we improve our dline, whether it be through FA or the draft, it will improve our run defense, our pass rush, and our pass coverage. if we build improve our dline, not only will vilma have less blockers on him, our pass rushers have more room to get to the QB because our DEs and NT will be taking up more blockers. there have been 2 main theories so far:

1. pick up an NT through FA and move robertson to DE. the problem with this theory is 2 fold.
a. can robertson play DE in the 3-4?? usually DEs are 6'4 and up because they have to match up against much taller OTs and robertson might not be tall enough and his arms might be too short to create separation from these guys.
b. who do we pick up in FA? everyone is saying terdell sands bc he is 6'7 335 lbs which is huge but is he fit to play NT? does he even have the leverage to play that position? what makes you think he can do it since he does not even start as a DT on the raiders? how do we know whether or not we will even be able to get him with other teams courting him? no way we should get in a bidding war with another team looking to improve their dline for an unproven guy like sands.

2. draft a DE and keep robertson at NT. dewayne has already spent a year learning this position and has vastly improved. now it depends on whether the front office thinks he is good enough to keep learning this position or whether it was just a 1 year hold over task before replacing him. i think we should just keep him at NT since he was doing quite well and just draft a DE to replace kimo. this would keep him inside where the shorter and stockier players are present.

now obviously, if branch, carriker, and anderson are all gone (these are the best 3-4 DEs) then we will probably go with the best OLB and fill our DE need with atkins or francis later in the draft. it all depends on what the front office thinks we need, as well as what we do in FA, and who is still on the board by the time we pick. i personally would like to see a carriker, bush, OLB (pray that woodley/spencer falls), but i wouldn't be upset with a moss, bush, atkins draft either.

Er...since Lynch probably won't fall to 25, I suppose Jarvis Moss. Question..would anyone here be against trading down if we feel we can still get the guy we want and pick up another pick or 2 along the way

i don't think we really need to trade down because we already have those 2 2nd rounders. we are in a difficult spot because though the draft is deep, we need immediate starters at a few positions. these positions are mainly DE, OLB, and RB. now if we trade down, we are losing the chance to lock up these positions. what good is it to trade down out of the first round and now have 3 2nd rounder, and an extra 4th?? those picks probably won't give us immediate starters moreso than just staying where we are right now. if we had a team that didn't have many IMMEDIATE needs and just wanted to draft depth that could come along in a couple of years, then i think that would be a great idea, but considering our situation of needing immediate help, we probably shouldn't.

I think it's just way too early to say. First, it depends what they do in FA. We all seem to agree that d line is the biggest need, but if they find a big NT in free agency, d line probably won't be their main focus. Second, so much can happen between now and the draft. A guy that we're looking at could light up the combines and end up going top 10. That's what Dewayne did. He was projected as a late rounder before the combines and he ended up going fourth overall. I think we'll have a much better idea after the combines.

Lynch and Branch aren't going to happen, I don't think we'll trade up and get them. I see woodley and moss and possibilities in the first round.

If you want Woodley save your first rounder and get him in the second...

trade drob for a 1st or 2nd

================================================================

26th -

Adam Carriker
DE | (6'6", 290, 4.85) | NEBRASKA

Scouts Grade: 90
View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: Possesses outstanding size and good quickness for his size. Is tall, well-built and powerful. Shows adequate initial quickness and good agility for such a bigger DE prospect. He plays with adequate leverage and shows the base to take on blocks versus the run. He takes solid angles in pursuit and has become a reliable wrap-up tackler in space. Also is a powerful hitter. Shows good instincts as a pass rusher. Displays a wide array of power moves and is relentless in pursuit. Not a speed-rusher type off the edge, but he is productive because of his quickness, power, versatility and motor.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal top-end speed. Does not show the speed or closing burst to consistently turn the corner as an edge rusher in the NFL. Is a power-end type that will only fit well in certain schemes. He must continue to improve his hand-usage in order to consistently disengage quicker.

Overall: Carriker was redshirter in 2002. He played in nine games in 2003, missed three games with an ankle injury, and finished the year with three total tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack. In 2004, he appeared in 10 games (eight starts), missed more time with an ankle injury, and recorded 36 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, and three sacks for the season. Carriker then started all 12 games in 2005 at "base" defensive end, made 43 total tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and forced one fumble earning First Team All-Big 12 recognition from the Associated Press.
With an impressive combination of size and agility, Carriker has always been supremely talented but finally showed signs of reaching his full potential as a junior. If he can take his game to the next level as a senior, Carriker could come off the 2007 draft board as early as the second round.

=======================================================================

35th -

Michael Bush
RB | (6'1", 251, 4.6) | LOUISVILLE

Scouts Grade: 89

Flags: (I: INJURY) Coming off injury that may affect play
View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: A big, powerful and fast prospect with premier running back potential in the NFL. He possesses great straight-line speed and agility for his size. He shows good initial burst but also displays patience as a runner. His vision is excellent and he does a very good job of changing direction in the backfield in order to hit the developing backside hole. Great feet for his size. When he runs with adequate pad-level he can run through defenders. He also has enough speed to consistently turn the corner as an outside runner. He's a versatile athlete that was recruited to play quarterback out of high school. He possesses good athleticism and hand-eye coordination. He looks smooth when catching the ball out of the backfield. Shows reliable hands and flashes the ability to pluck the ball on the run, as well as away from his body. He has experience working out of the slot and split out wide. Is an outstanding route-runner for a running back, especially for his size. He has ideal size and strength to handle blocking responsibility at the next level. Also shows willingness in blitz pickup.

Weaknesses: Durability is now a pressing concern following season-ending broken leg injury as a senior. He also missed two games (Rutgers, Syracuse) due to injury in 2005. He possesses great speed for his size, but he's not going to run away from NFL defenders as frequently as he does at the collegiate level. He lacks ideal elusiveness and will struggle to make defenders miss as frequently in space at the next level. Runs too high at times. Needs to show more consistent pad-level and also needs to add a better stiff-arm move to his repertoire. Conditioning and stamina can improve. Can use some technique work as a blocker. Has the tools to be outstanding in this facet but needs to refine angles and show more consistent leverage at the point of attack.

Overall: Bush arrived at Louisville in 2003, played in all 13 games that season, four of which he started. He carried 81 times for 503 yards (6.2 average), scored six touchdowns, and caught 17 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown. As a true sophomore in 2004, Bush played in all 12 games (three starts) and rushed for 743 yards on 132 carries (5.6 yards per carry) with seven touchdowns, while adding 11 receptions for 155 yards. Bush also threw a 48-yard touchdown pass versus TCU. In 2005, Bush played in 10 contests, started eight, and missed two games with a foot injury. He rushed 205 times for 1,143 yards (led the Big East), averaging 5.6 yards per carry and set a Louisville school record for rushing touchdowns with 23. He also made 21 receptions for 253 yards and one touchdown. Bush suffered a season-ending broken tibia in Week 1 (vs. Kentucky) of the 2006 season.
Bush has the option to medical redshirt in 2006 and return to Louisville next fall, but he is expected to forgo that option for the 2007 NFL draft. Prior to the injury he was considered the premier running back prospect in the 2007 class. When healthy, Bush's versatility and speed for such a big back are what separate him from most others at his position. However, his injury typically requires a six-to-eight month recovery period, which means he'll be cutting it close in terms of rehabbing for in time to workout for NFL scouts. There also are concerns regarding Bush's eating habits, which could lead to serious weight and conditioning problems during the recovery process.

If Bush can avoid that pitfall and expedite his rehab, there's still a chance that a team gambles on him late in the first round. At this point, however, it's a safer bet that Bush comes off the board in the second round.

58th - this guy might be around for our 3rd but just to make sure we get him.

Louis Leonard
DT | (6'4", 353, 5.25) | FRESNO STATE

Scouts Grade: 52

You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: A massive DT/NT prospect with impressive height and bulk. Displays good initial quickness for his size. Is a wide-bodied defender that is capable of tying up blockers in a two-gap scheme. He displays good overall strength and the ability to anchor at the line of scrimmage. Can occasionally be effective as a pass rusher because of quickness and power. He will show the ability to occasionally drive the lineman back into the pocket with powerful bull rush move. He plays with a solid motor on the field, so long as he gets proper rest.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal experience and is an unpolished prospect. Must learn to use his hands more effectively and disengage from blocks quicker. Will wear down quickly and needs to be in a heavy rotation to be effective. Weight can become an issue and will always need to be monitored. He does not possess good athleticism and he won't make a lot of plays in space. Gets good penetration for a player his size, but does not show closing burst to the quarterback. Also lacks many moves as a pass rusher and does not show a lot of creativity in that regard.

Overall: Leonard was redshirted in 2002 before appearing in nine games during the 2003 season, when he recorded five total tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack. In 2004, he saw action in nine games (three starts), missed three games with an ankle injury, and finished the year with 11 total tackles. Leonard played in 12 games in 2005, finishing with 26 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery for the season.
Leonard is a second-day prospect in the 2007 draft class because of his size and potential, but not because of his collegiate resume. The massive two-gap DT/NT prospect must improve his technique and overall consistency in order to warrant consideration in the first four rounds.

Strengths: Possesses excellent size. Is a thickly built mauling type of interior, offensive lineman. Engulfs undersized defenders at the point of attack and can wear defenders down over the course of the game. Does a good job of locking onto the defender's frame, plays with a wide base and can sustain blocks. Takes good angles to blocks, plays under control in space and can get into position at the second level. Gets adequate knee bend in pass set and rarely gives ground to bull rushers. Shows good awareness, keeps his head up and does an adequate job of picking up blitzes as well as line stunts. He has shown some versatility playing guard and center during his collegiate career.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have an explosive first step, doesn't show great footwork and is going to have problems preventing penetration working against one-gap defenders. Foot-speed is lacking, has problems redirecting inside after starting outside and is vulnerable to double moves. Doesn't deliver a violent initial punch, doesn't roll his hips into blocks and isn't going to knock defenders back. Lacks ideal range, doesn't cover downfield well and may need to shed some weight in order to gain some quickness. Ideal playing weight is under 320 pounds, but he has ballooned to 340 pounds at points during his collegiate career.

Overall: Beekman was redshirted in 2002. He saw action in all 13 games in 2003, was plugged into the starting lineup twice, and played on special teams registering two tackles. In 2004, Beekman took over as the starting right guard for the entire season (12 games). He once again started all 12 games at right guard in 2005. Beekman started all 13 games as a senior in 2006; 10 at guard and three at center.
Beekman is a far better run blocker than he is a pass blocker but he has the size and enough athletic ability to develop into an every-down starting offensive guard in the NFL. He also showed some versatility playing center as a senior. Beekman projects as one of the top-five offensive guard prospects in this year's class and should come off the board no later than the third round.
