Alright...enough bitching about Revis...the draft is soon!!!

Every year I pick out a prospect or two that just give me boners all over the place. These are usually guys who will go in the middle rounds and tend to be less athletic guys who are just good football players. Guys that I think will be really good players for a long time. They probably won't be stars, but the guys that championship teams need.

Past man crushes have included Browns DE Jabaal Sheard, Ravens RB Bernard Pierce, I don't even know what team he's on anymore WR Jordan Shipley, Bucs MLB Mason Foster, Ravens DE Arthur Jones, Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, Bears RB Matt Forte, Ravens RB Ray Rice, and Jags RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

More or less a pretty successful list...of course I probably have selective memory about the prospects I liked that didn't turn out so hot...but let's not talk about that now. This year I've got a few players that get me all hot and bothered...here they are:

Syracuse S Sharmako Thomas (Rounds 2-3) - I love this little guy, and not just because he has the greatest name ever. He's a baller, and a few inches short of being the most physically impressible safety prospect in years. If he had those inches, he's probably a mid first rounder.
Posted Image

Keenan Allen WR Cal (1-2) - The only thing Allen lacks a WR prospect is elite straight line speed. He is a great route runner with a big, tall frame and excellent hands, and is surprisingly good after the catch given his lack of long speed. Some issues with recovery from a knee injury seem to be pushing his stock down, if he's still on the board at the Jets 2nd round pick and they haven't drafted a WR already I think he'd be a GREAT pick.
Posted Image

Datone Jones DE UCLA (1-2) - Probably not a good fit for the Jets right now, but I love this guy's game anyway. If you watch UCLA games he is always affecting the play, in so many different ways. He may never get huge accolades in the NFL, but he will help his team win lots of games.
Posted Image

Chase Thomas OLB Stanford (3-5) - I see Chase as a Bryan Thomas type player; fundamentally sound, sets the edge well, and provides a little pass rush as well. Played in the 3-4 in college on the exceptionally well coached Stanford teams.
Posted Image

Nickell Robey CB USC (3-4) - He's only 5'-7", but every time I watched a USC game he was so clearly dominant I don't understand why he isn't getting more press. He may never be more than a nickel, but in today's NFL that is still a very important position. BIG FAN of this guy.
Posted Image

The Tight End Depth - This isn't a particular player, but the Jets should definitely look to grab a TE in the middle-late rounds with guys like Levine Toilolo, Gavin Escobar, Joseph Fauria, etc all capable of being contributors at the next level.

We always like so many of the same players.

A few I like: Markus Wheaton, Kevin Minter, Joseph Randle, Sharrif Floyd, Jordan Poyer and Bacarri Rambo.

What's your call on the first two picks if the Jets can't find a way to trade down HJ?

If the draft fell something like this for the Jets I'd pee my pants.

1a - Ideally, I'd like the Jets to trade back with this or the 13th pick...but...I guess I'll go with whichever OLB pass rusher falls here. I'm honestly not a big fan of any of MIngo, Jordan, Ansah, Jones...1 or 2 of them will probably succeed....but I have no idea which one.

1b - OG Jonathon Cooper (I know jetsman05 will be upset with me, but it's mighty tempting to take one of these elite Guards at 13)

2 - WR Keenan Allen (If Allen isn't available, I wouldn't want the Jets drafting a WR here because I don't think any others are worth the pick. Perhaps go with a TE like Zach Ertz)

3 - S Sharmako Thomas (There will probably be a couple of safeties you could take here, Thomas is obviously just my personal favorite)

Touche...that is a pretty sweet name. I actually don't know much about Rambo. Tee this up to 05...and while we're at it, what do you think of Cornelius Washington? I didn't see much of Georgia this year so I don't know these guys, but I keep reading how people think Washington could be a much better pro than he was college player. He did kill the combine...

Stills doesn't have great size, or speed...and in Oklahoma's spread offense it's easy for a crafty guy like him to be successful. I think he'd have a tougher time in the pro's. If he's available in the 5th round...great pick...but not any earlier.

I've seen so much varied opinion on Wheaton, what round do you think he's going?

Yeah I think Minter is going to be good in a 3-4...good mid round pick.

You're gonna have to enlighten me on Randle.

Love Sharrif Floyd, but do you think he's more of a 4-3 DT?

Like Poyer, there are a couple good CBs that should be available around the 4th like Robert Alford, Logan Ryan, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, and my Hurricane hope Brandon McGee.

I saw that as well. On draft insider Tony Pauline says that Georgia coaches are telling NFL teams good things about Washington, that they used him wrong in college because they had Jarvis Jones at OLB.

Dude, Mike Mamula much? He's big, he's strong, he's athletic. He might be the biggest boom or bust pick in this draft.

That's why I want him in the 2nd, not the 1st. If he slips, cool. We grab him and develop him.

I guess I just think the Jets aren't in the position to be taking boom or bust picks right now. They need to hit with at least above average starters in the first 3 rounds in my mind. Once they've built a solid foundation they can take fliers on the Margus Hunts of the world.

I don't see him as any more of a risk than Ansah or Mingo and considering that those guys will be Top 10, grabbing Hunt int he 2nd is good value.

I should also add I really like Robert Woods from USC. I like him in the 2nd round as a complimentary receiver, but now I'm starting to read he might go in the 1st. This is going to sound ridiculous...but he reminds me of Jerry Rice. Now I in no way mean to imply I think he will be anywhere near as good as Jerry Rice. But his style and body build are similar.

Woods has good height at 6'-0" but isn't overly bulky at 200 lbs. He didn't test particularly well in any drill at the combine, but that isn't his strength. He runs fantastic routes to any point on the field, has good hands, can create after the catch, and does all the little things to be successful.

PS - That's Robert Woods that Sharmako Thomas is picking a pass off in front of in that photo above.

I'm going to catch so much shit for saying this... but... I'd like Matt Barkley in the 3rd. To me, he's the anti-Sanchez. He's a 4 year starter. He's poised. He's had ups and downs already. The talent is there. This year's USC team had no OL so he took a beating. I think he has marginal 1st round talent and can be our answer at QB.

I know, I know... USC QBS SUCK! LETS NEVER DRAFT A USC QB AGAIN!!!!!!

Rambo is a player. Just seems to be around the ball every play. I think he actually fits what Rex likes to do with a safety to a tee. Able to hit, play in the box, all around the field.

As for Washington... I never noticed him at Georgia honestly, so I can't really form much of an opinion.

God I hope we don't take a guard in the first round...

Yeah, again, I'm a little rusty on ma Bulldogs...but the worry with Williams is his ability to stick with NFL receivers. He has great size and straight line speed, but the lateral agility and quickness is lacking.

But he could be the type Rex likes...an enforcer.
