azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

Countdown To The 2012 Draft Looking Inside

So, it appears Bart Scott will be back for another year of the media rodeo also sometimes know as the New York Jets football organization. Of course, Mr. T has told us before that he expects players back and in camp...always seemingly right before their nameplate gets ripped of their locker at the Jets Atlantic Health Training Center.

For now, let's assume Scott is dressed in a Hess gas station attendant uniform for 2012. It's also a pretty safe assumption this would be Scott's last year with the Jets, for reals this time. So, the question now is who succeeds Scott as Kronk to David Harris' Yzma (Emperor's New Groove reference, no big deal).

Posted Image

Inside backers in a 3-4 are generally easier to find in the mid rounds, particularly the Kronk style thumpers, as they can succeed in the NFL despite ideal speed or athleticism. Some examples are Desmond Bishop in Green Bay (6th round), Jameel McLain (UDFA), San Fran's NaVorro Bowman (3rd round), Houston's Darryl Sharpton (4th round), and Brandon Siler (7th round).

So, who are the Kronks in this year's draft?

Luke Kuechly is the most talked about ILB in this year's draft, but quite frankly he is more of Yzma, if he even belongs in the 3-4 at all....aaannddd a sure fire 1st rounder.

Dont'a Hightower is as Kronk as it gets, but he is probably a 2nd rounder, and a little too rich for the Jets blood at this point.

Realistically thinking 3rd round and on...

Posted Image Mychal Kendricks - Cal - 5'11" 240 - A little shorter than ideal, but Kendricks surprisingly killed it at the combine, pacing all linebackers in most events. Before the combine I thought you could get Kendricks in the 4th or 5th round, based on his solid play in the middle of Cal's 3-4 defense. But now, his stock is on the rise and it's possible he even sneaks into the end of the 2nd round (where I think it's too early to take him).

Posted Image Ronnell Lewis - Oklahoma - 6'2" 255 - This freight train has speed and strength to spare, but has had an up and down college career with spotty production. He actually lined up as a DE/OLB in college, but I think he might actually make a good 34 ILB. He wasn't an overly productive pass rusher, but he has the size and willingness to smack people around on the inside. It's hard to judge his stock, and could fall anywhere from the 2nd - 4th round range. Editor's Note: Please don't get too excited about the no-homo, football man crush, half naked while running photo.

Posted Image Chris Galippo - USC - 6'1" 240 - Old school Kronker who can't cover to save his life (or starting job). He reads and reacts well, can take on blockers, and generally knows his craft. Galippo is probably a late round or undrafted free agent, but he could find a home as a 34 ILB that can diagnose quickly and take on blocks.

Posted Image Vontaze Burfitct - ASU - 6'1" 250 - I'm pretty sure everyone knows his story. All I'll say is he's worth a late round pick to see if that powerful energy he has can be bottled up and thrown molotov cocktail style at the opposing offense.

yeah if Bart is returning, which we won't know really until hes here this Summer going by the Jets history of saying a guy is staying then could release during the draft if they got a guy they like, like with Alan Faneca how they released him after drafting Vlad Ducasse, well anyways if hes returning that pushes ILB down the lists of needs. I would say OLB/DE first round most likely, round 2-3 RB and WR maybe?

If we are going to be a run heavy team, I am not confident in our current RBs. I really want Doug Martin.

need to prioritize the depth chart

over load the pass rush with depth and stream line the offense
