santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 12:49 PM) so do we beat the pats or just let them get the easy win
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 01:57 PM) At this point I am all about ruining their chance for home field.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:15 PM) FIRE IDZIK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:24 PM) O we will win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:24 PM) Rex will end his last game in metlife with a bang
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:44 PM) bang bang!
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 03:25 PM) You know Rex will dial up some crazy packages for Brady. He probably has that D-line all riled up already.
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 03:44 PM) Riled up to get Fired up
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:19 PM) Connor Cook from MI State is projected to go in the middle of the first round.
Mr_Jet Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:48 PM) Cook is not ready for the NFL.
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:50 PM) Lol cook??
Mr_Jet Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:54 PM) I think very highly of Connor Cook. But if he is projected to go in the first round of the 2015 draft, this is going to be a very weak draft.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 December 2014 - 05:02 PM) Connor Cook is going back to school..
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) Lol school??
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 06:31 PM) I don't know anything about him but he was projected by two different mock drafts to go to the Texans
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 December 2014 - 08:20 PM) Woody Johnson favorited a tweet about firing Idzik lol
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:15 AM) woody better fire that ass clown if he wants fans to attend games next season. He messed the whole thing up by hiring a GM without letting him choose the coach. He likely was told no by the top 20 candidates and stuck himself with is dick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 AM) yup, I don't trust Idzik to make good use of our top draft pick or sign quality FAs. Or hire our next HC
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 AM) I want a new GM and HC
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:54 AM) Should I go Vincent Jackson or Jarvis Landry as my WR3?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:13 AM) i'd go landry
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:40 AM) The opposite of what Mr Jet thinks about it.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:03 PM) Top Bantz by 05
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:03 PM) http://www.gfycat.co...ousAlaskanhusky
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 02:13 PM) 'Fire Idzik' banner returns for Jets
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:23 PM) jets fans are loony. shoutbox is clear evidence of that.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:28 PM) Nah Jets fans are all level headed individuals
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:40 PM) Zzzzz
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) i agree very level headed
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) ILL KILL YOU ILL KILL ALL OF YOU I AAM THE TABLE!!!!
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 06:30 PM) @RapSheet: Sources: #Michigan has made another run at Jim Harbaugh after he initially rebuffed the school. U-M has made an offer of 6 years, $48M. Wow.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 06:33 PM) @AdamSchefter: Stunner from Chicago: Bears starting QB Jimmy Clausen this week, per source.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 06:33 PM) LOL

MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:36 PM) Cutler?? WOOOOOO
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 06:39 PM) 49ers gotta whip out that check book
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 06:40 PM) jets resign rex for 2 more years and get cutler
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) http://cdn.ksk.uprox...ing-650x487.png
santana Icon : (Today, 03:19 PM) holy shit thrilling match up tonight
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 04:13 PM) Does it matter who wins tonight? Draft pick wise for the Jets?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) Probably not. We probably want to draft above the Titans though if that is possible, they are a team that could use a QB. The Jaguars just drafted Blake Bortles, doubt they go first round QB 2 years in a row
santana Icon : (Today, 04:29 PM) so titans win is best win

Well now since we have bid farewell to Revis and are working with 2 1st Round picks.I read plenty of mock drafts over the last few months, and I thought it would be fun to see what we the fans think would be good choices for us early on. Have fun with it here are my choices

9. Barkeivous Mingo- most talked about guy at our spot, when he bulks up some would help our pass rush immensely.

13. Tavon Austin: let's face it fellas, our biggest problem last season was we had no playmakers on offense. While on the small side, he has the potential to be a matchup nightmare because we can line him up at several different positions and his speed is off the charts

39. Zach Ertz- yet another playmaker to help Sanchez who needs all the help he can get at this point. Big solid guy with reliable hands, should be a great red-zone target.

In later rounds we can focus on fixing the other holes like the o-line and getting safety help. I really think we need to focus this draft on fixing our offense because they reeked last year, our D will be fine even without Revis.

Draft is such a crapshoot.. I'll just go with the guy with the interesting name Barkeivous Mingo

Also with sanchez leading the way the jets only hope will be through the defense. Investing more talent into the offense can only get the jets so far before sanchez throws another ridiculous INT.

I hate all your picks.

Mingo scares me... the production isn't there in LSU. Maybe Rex can turn him into something, but at #9, you want to be as close to a sure thing as possible. On top of that, there's some questions about his size... buy honestly reminds me of Maybin a little too much.

Tavon Austin is good, but I think that he's a beneficiary of a very weak WR class. He's a good early 2nd round pick that's going to get drafted 20 spots too soon because there isn't a complete WR in this draft. To me, he's a slot WR. He's not as big as Desean Jackson and to me, it's scary to invest an early pick into a guy who may not get open against taller CBs. Rememeber, this kid is 5'8" in shoes and although he's fast, he's not a record setting trackstar that can sprint away from guys. If he's got 2 steps on a 6 foot CB, he's still covered because he's so damn little. Not knocking him or his production, I just think that in the top half of the 1st round, you go with a prototypical WR or you don't go with a WR at all.

Ertz to me is a guy that does everything okay and nothing great. He's had too many drops to be considered having great hands. He's not a great blocker and he's not fast. What does he bring to the table? He'll be a solid pro, but again, at #39, you want someone that's polished in at least one area. He won't provide good pass protection, he won't be that safety blanket that will make difficult catches look routine and he won't elude NFL DBs or safeties after the catch. Again, too high a pick for what he is.

My draft:

9. Dion Jordan or trade down.
13. Star Louteli
13b. Either one of the elite Gs (Warmack or Cooper)
39. If we draft Jordan and Star, this pick has to be OL. If not, go BPA (which may be a S or one of the OLBs that are sure to drop (I think that Jarvis Jones might actually fall here because his draft stock is taking a beating, Bjoern Werner or Margus Hunt perhaps)

I would be happy with those picks. Mingo is a risk, but if Rex and co believes in him as a pass rusher I would defer to them. He has a lot of talent though.

Excellent points! Tavon Austin will be the biggest reach in this draft. Many analysts compare him to Percy Harvin, but Harvin is bigger and taller than Austin, and just as fast. And even then Harvin was taken at #22 in the draft. Spending a top 15 pick on Austin is doing the team a disservice. You just don't spend a top 15 pick on a slot receiver unless you are a team with very few holes and can take the chance on a playmaker.

If I had my choice, I would take the #9 and trade it for a 2nd this year and a 1st next year (more, if possible) and then take one of the two guards (Warmack, Cooper) with the 13th. If neither are there at 13, take BPA (we need help everywhere). Even better would be if we can trade the #9 back to #16/17 and pick up a 2nd that way, and then still trade the #16/17 for another second this year next year's first, but I doubt this will happen.

This draft class has very few studs at the top. Sign some veteran free agents on one-year deals as a stop gap for next year's draft.

As that's the case, surely if there is going to be trade action, then teams aren't going to give up small fortunes in order to move up just a few spots? I can see the merits of trading now, but I can't see the front office picking up a first next year or a bounty of picks given how this year's class grades out.
