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)

.@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

Jetsman05 Icon : (26 April 2015 - 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 April 2015 - 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.

Rex Ryan says Tim Tebow could see greater role on offense if pass protection struggles
BY Manish Mehta

CORTLAND -- The Jets gave up five sacks in their preseason-opening loss to the Bengals on Friday night. Mark Sanchez was sacked twice in series.

Rex Ryan left the door open to an intriguing possibility if the Jets’ pass protection struggles during the regular season. Could Tim Tebow, who eluded two sacks with his feet on Friday, take on a greater role in the offense if the protection doesn’t hold up? There’s little doubt that Tebow’s escapability to mask deficiencies in the pass protection.

“We’re open to anything,” Ryan said before practice on Sunday.

Ryan admitted that he didn’t plan to unveil the Wildcat with Tebow even before he got a call from Marvin Lewis asking him not to use it the day before the game.

“I let Marvin think that, but no,” Ryan said. “The Wildcat is tough to defend. Are we going to do it? Of course. At some point, we’re going to do it. But again, it’s more of the old, some people think that the wildcat’s come and gone. No, it hasn’t. If anything, it’s just the opposite.”

Ryan also revealed that he considered Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick in the 2011 draft. The 49ers selected him in the second round.

“I was really intrigued by him when he came out,” Ryan said. “Because we’re losing Brad (Smith). They drafted him before we could. But I was interested in him… So you’re seeing these guys. It’s hard to defend some of that stuff. When you have the ability to throw as well as run, it makes it tough.”

Ryan praised Tebow’s ability to run against any type of coverage.

“He ran against man coverage, he ran against zone coverage,” Ryan said about Tebow’s performance on Friday night. “That’s what he does. If you rush four, he can run on you. You can rush, six, seven,
whatever, he can go do that. But I also like the way he threw the ball.”


NOTES:
WR Chaz Schilens
left the preseason opener with an ankle injury, Ryan said. Schilens already had been dealing with a groin injury during camp.

Ryan said that safety Eric Smith is “day-to-day” after suffering a knee injury against the Bengals. The Daily News first reported on Saturday that Smith will miss the rest of the preseason games due to a left MCL sprain. Ryan said that the Jets will take a cautious approach with Smith, but are not considering adding a veteran safety to the roster.

Ryan singled out offensive linemen Austin Howard and Vlad Ducasse after watching the tape of the preseason opener. He was expecially pleased by Howard, who started at right tackle for Wayne Hunter in the first preseason game.

“Anybody that can play like the way he played is trying to tell you something and you got to find a way to get him out there,” Ryan said. “I don’t know about competition. You earn your playing time in this league. You got to put him out there sometime. I don’t know how many reps… I told the team, as well as he played… is he going to play tackle? Is he going to play this spot, that spot? Is he going to play defense? Because anybody that plays like that deserves to play. That’s something that I was encouraged with….. He is driving people and finishing and that’s what we’ve been talking about. I’m really encouraged by him.”

WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) and WR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) aren’t expected to practice on Sunday. Ryan hopes that Kerley will be able to fully practice before the end of the week.

RT Wayne Hunter (lower back) will be monitored at practice on Sunday, Ryan said.

Great call. Base who your QB is off the fact you didn't address weak spots on the line.

The title is misleading, he didn't say Tebow will. He said that they are open to anything when asked the question.

The title of the article was very misleading. Typical media.

If we end up running a pot luck offensive scheme this year then we are not going to go very far. However I wouldn't push the panic button until near the end of September. During pre season you are trying out different ppl and different things. I only hope that if by substituting Tebow in certain situations we are not telegraphing our intentions. I would like to think that Tebow gives us diversity and not predictability.
