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
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Bueller
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:33 PM) Manish says the Jets should trade down and draft Andrus Peat round 1
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:39 PM) Even an idiot can say something that's right every now and then

Hard not to knock the Jets http://espn.go.com/b..._medium=twitter

Notes, thoughts and observations on the Jets and the rest of the NFL:

1. Ticket master. The Jets are getting ripped for considering HBO’s “Hard Knocks” – and deservedly so. How will another appearance on “Hard Knocks” help them overtake the Patriots? That is the only question that matters. Every decision, from acquiring players to selecting the cafeteria menu, should be based on that question. If the Jets agree to it, it's a classic case of the tail wagging the dog, the business side running the football operation. Obviously, owner Woody Johnson wants the exposure to help sell PSLs. The Jets recently sent an e-mail to potential customers, advertising a “ticket opportunity” and detailing the positives of owning a PSL. The e-mail arrived one day after the Tim Tebow trade. Coincidence? I think not.

2. Sweet 16? Michael Floyd’s stock is rising to the point where he could sneak into the top 10. He’d receive strong consideration from the Jets if he somehow slips to 16. "His explosion off of the line of scrimmage is exceptional; I would compare it to (Justin) Blackmon’s," NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said of the Notre Dame WR. "The interest should start at No. 7 with Jacksonville, Miami at 8, Carolina at 9 and Buffalo at 10. (Picks) 7 through 10, there has to be some interest, but in no event can I see him going past the Jets at 16." Ultimately, the Jets' decision could come down to Floyd vs. the best-available pass rusher.

3. Secret crush. The Jets also have the hots for South Carolina DE/OLB Melvin Ingram, a versatile pass rusher who can play almost anywhere in the front seven. There are some who can believe he can be a 4-3 MLB. He has serious wheels. Against Georgia, he took a direct snap on a fake punt and ran 68 yards for a TD. Hey, maybe the Jets can let him run the wildcat. (Kidding.) Ingram, projected as a top-10 pick, is someone the Jets might be willing to move up for.


4. Welcome mat. ‘Tis the week of pre-draft visits. Be careful not to read too much into the list of names that parade through your favorite team’s facility. A visit doesn’t always mean legitimate interest; sometimes, it’s a smokescreen. Other times, it could be an 11th-hour medical check. And, yes, sometimes they’re legit. A year ago, the Jets brought in DE Muhammad Wilkerson for a workout; they picked him in the first round.

5. Aussie speaks. On YouTube, you can check out a video of former rugby star Hayden Smith (6-foot-6, 265 pounds) performing various football drills. Based on my stopwatch, he runs the 40 in 4.9 seconds, not the advertised 4.75 -- but still not bad for a man his size. He's built like a tank but he's relatively fluid in his movements. Smith seems to have a solid perspective on his situation, saying he faces "a very long road and a very difficult road ... I'd be doing everybody who plays in the NFL a disservice to say I can come in and contribute straight away."

6. Say what? LB Bart Scott, claiming the media sensationalized the team’s internal unrest, insisted the locker “wasn’t fractured that much.” Isn’t that kind of like saying a woman can be half pregnant?

7. Gut feeling. The Jets are showing interest in South Carolina WR Alshon Jeffery, according to a source. Jeffrey is a second-round prospect with almost Plaxico-like size – 6-foot-3. Problem is, he’s been known to have too much size. He ballooned to 240 pounds during the season, affecting his waistline. One scout told me he noticed a “gut” on Jeffery while studying him in a pre-game warmup. Jeffrey apparently loves to eat, the scout said. To his credit, he dropped some serious poundage and reported to the scouting combine at 216. The question is, could he stay away from Five Guys Burgers and Fries near the Jets' facility?

8. Gushing. One NFL scout on Tebow's mystique: “I’ve never seen anything like him in my life. Ever. Ever. Ever. He’s got magic. Whatever ‘it’ is, he’s got it.”

9. Head games. In the wake of BountyGate, and the chilling audio of Greg Williams instructing the Saints' defense to injure 49er players, I'm surprised the Giants haven't received more criticism for the Kyle Williams situation in the NFC Championship Game. I was there after the game when the Giants' Devin Thomas said they knew Williams had a history of concussions and that the plan was "to put a hit on him." He said their hope was to daze Williams, making him cough up the ball -- which is what happened, twice. Thomas certainly made it sound like a pre-conceived plot. The NFL said there were no suspicious hits by the Giants, but this still smelled fishy.

10. Head games, II. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome, always respected as one of the best in the business, said his team now considers a prospect's concussion history when evaluating him for the draft. Their scouting reports now include a mention of the number of concussions sustained in college, the Baltimore Sun reported. It sounds like a positive move, but if other teams jump on board, you wonder if college players will be more apt to downplay symptoms, knowing a reported concussion could impact their NFL stock.

No secret that the Jets like Melvin Ingram. Heard that if he falls out of the top 10, the Jets would try to trade up and grab him.
