MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:33 PM) jack to jax 36th overal

Upset Geno Smith fires agents

Four days after a humbling fall out of the first round, New York Jets draft pick Geno Smith responded by firing his agents.

The former West Virginia quarterback, who tumbled into the second round (39th overall), confirmed Tuesday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that he parted ways with Select Sports Group. He claimed it wasn't because of his big drop in the draft.

"I don't want to shed too much light on it," he said. "The thing that I can tell you is that it's not because of the whole draft experience. It's not because of one particular incident. There are a number of things, and that story, you know, that battle will be fought on a different day. As of right now, I don't feel too comfortable talking about all the details of it."

By rule, Smith has to wait five days before he can sign with another agent. Sports Business Journal first reported his decision.

Smith was projected as a possible top-10 pick, although there was a growing belief in the days before the draft that he could slip.

The agonizing wait in the green room at Radio City Music Hall was "hard to stomach," he said. After Day 1, he announced his plans to leave New York for home, but he changed his mind and returned to the green room.

As it turned out, Smith wasn't the first quarterback taken. EJ Manuel went to the Buffalo Bills with the 16th pick. The Jets passed twice on Smith in the first round before pulling the trigger.

Because of the rookie wage scale, there isn't much room for negotiation. Smith will receive a deal similar to that of last year's 39th pick, St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins -- a four-year deal for $4.99 million.

Smith's former agents, Jeff Nalley and Erik Burkhardt, didn't return calls for comment.

The firing of his agents, coupled with his threat to leave the draft after the first day, has raised questions about his maturity.

"One of his perceived weaknesses was working through adversity," a personnel executive said Tuesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
