santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss

Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 PM) God dammit Richardson. Jets need to pay Mo. Richardson is turning into a huge liability.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) good thing we drafted williams. thats why you take BPA
jets4life Icon : (Yesterday, 07:54 PM) Mike Freeman of the B/R has spoken to three NFL sources who all said they think Jets DE Sheldon Richardson Will Never Play Another Down In The Nfl following this arrest.

Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:44 PM) do we need to get rid of sheldon?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:44 PM) wtf was he thinking driving 143 mph
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:19 PM) My guess would be by the time he is done with all his suspensions he will not be under contract anymore.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:20 PM) The child and gun will do him in.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:20 PM) Was he charged with child endangerment?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:53 PM) Why o why
Chaos Icon : (Today, 07:29 AM) i think he was only charged with resisting arrest
Chaos Icon : (Today, 07:29 AM) he isn't going anywhere. wife beaters get second chances and he won't?
Chaos Icon : (Today, 07:29 AM) i'm sure he's going to be suspended for more than 4 games though
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:16 AM) Richardson is a moron
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:16 AM) Good thing we drafted Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:17 AM) Makes the decision easier to pay Wilkerson, someone who knows how to not get into trouble off the field

NFL.com is doing a feature on the best and worst draft picks for each teams throughout its history, and here's the Jets:



http://www.nfl.com/n...rst-draft-picks


Not much to argue with, but Dewayne Robertson could perhaps have featured.

I was going to post my top ten picks in the last ten seasons, as well as a selection of the worst, but looking over our recent history we've got pretty decent value. There have been a couple notable stinkers - Vernon Gholston and Robertson being the most notable along with Mike Nugent. But otherwise we've drafted quite well. Saying that, in the last couple years the quality has tailed off slightly.


A handful of our first round picks - Vilma, Revis, Mangold, Ferguson, Keller and Wilkerson have all provided above their value. Kyle Wilson may not have lived up to his status as a first rounder, but he has not been terrible, while Sanchez was under centre the two years we got to the AFC Championship game.


But what's most striking is what we've done with mid-late round picks. We've selected four ace kick returners - Justin Miller, Leon Washington, Brad Smith and Joe McKnight, two of whom also added value on offense. Jerricho Cotchery, Sione Pouha, Kerry Rhodes, Erik Coleman, David Harris and Jeremy Kerley have all been above average starters too.

Then we've had good value from others - Victor Hobson was a solid starter before the transition to the 3-4, Shonn Greene was effective, especially during our playoff runs, while Matt Slauson was a 6th rounder well spent. The likes of Drew Coleman, Dwight Lowery and Eric Smith have offered solid depth too.

Two notable players got away from us - Derrick Ward went onto the Giants and formed an impressive one-two-three punch with Bradshaw and Jacobs, while Joel Dreesen has helped the Texans and Broncos at TE after being one of our late round selection. Others disappointed, like second rounders Derrick Strait, Kellen Clemens and Ducasse.


If our scouting can deliver this year - especially in a draft that isn't as top heavy with talent - then hopefully we'll be able to restore a solid core throughout the line-up.
