MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:31 PM) if I'm wrong I will eat m crow
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:39 PM) Some mocks had him top 10
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) I wanted Lawson bad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) f***ing bills
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 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 : (28 April 2016 - 10:03 PM) Broncos traded up for lynch
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:41 PM) Round 1 is done
2JBallar01 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 12:43 AM) He will play ILB for us.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 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 : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:33 PM) jack to jax 36th overal
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:33 PM) Did you hear that the 1st round pick for the Browns RETIRED after getting drafted
SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:29 PM) Hi guys long time no talk hope everyone is well
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) SMH
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though

Kid's got real nice hands and has some speed. His size is definitely a concern though.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

I really dont know what to think of kid. I mean where and how does he fit in is my real concern besides him being 165lbs. obviously everyone thinks special teams but in the 4th rd to pick a guy primarily for specials when we still had needs such as OL, LB, DB and getting guys to play as depth. Leads me to beileve that he'll be used in the offense a sprinkle but how? Look at our core...

Decker
Kerley
Hill/Evans/Nelson
Saunders
Ford
Gates

Etc..

Where do we use him on offense? I can't see them using him only for packages.

Thought you were a Sooner Dubb?! You should love this kid.

His size - or lack of it - is something of a concern, but if he can gain separation from DBs, get open and catch passes then it doesn't matter. If you look purely at their build, then Decker, Evans, Nelson and Hill (if he makes the team) can play outside with Kerley, Ford, Saunders and Gates as slot receivers. The quality may not be great, but as I said in another thread, the threat on passing plays posed by Chris Johnson and Amaro should mean defences won't be able to key in on our receivers as much.

I viewed a few seconds of his highlight video on YouTube.

Now I can go online and say that I've "watched film" on this guy and act like I'm some kind of expert.

I'm so excited!

Between Saunders, Evans, and Enunwa hopefully one pans out. Enunwa is intriguing to me because hes 6'2 225 and runs a 4.45 and had 12 TD last season on a run team.

Thats the same with any receiver. As long as he can gain separation. However that isn't going to happen every play and the times he does take a nice hit is going to make us all skip a beat. That's why I want big WRs like the guy we got from UCLA, cause even if they do take a hit, you don't need to panic every time about whether he's going to be out indefinitely.

ITA, I get the feeling that's what most people do when they say they "watched film" on somebody. I'm going to be honest, other than Tajh Boyd I had never heard of any of the other Jets draft picks before last Thursday. I watched some UCLA games last year, but Shaq Evans didn't stand out to me. But that doesn't mean he won't be a good player.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I love his tenacity. He plays with real purpose, he'll make the tough catches and go over the middle and make plays but there is something about him that drives me crazy when we talk about taking him off of OU and putting him on the Jets in this offense with these WR's. I just dont see where he can contribute other than special teams. The only real way I see him getting legit time or in some real rotations is if Kerely plays at 2. If Evans, Nelson or Hill land at 2 then that automatically puts Kerley in the slot. Which brings me to my other point, we will not open up more then 3Wr packages. With the backs we have, plus a good TE and given that our surplus of WR talent just isnt there much past Decker and Kerely ( We gotta see what transpires in camp) we won't venture with 4 or 5 wides much. Which ultimately means he won't see much time if he doesn't make it in the starting 3. Can he beat out guys like Nelson? (whos hungry), Evans??, Hill?? Tough task. Getting past Nelson won't happen.

Another thing about him that's a concern is he doesn't seem to have another gear. Often times he'll get caught from behind or tripped up. Happens more often then you can imagine. He has a great first burst but flat lines or (maxes out) immediately after which is another reason why he gets caught a lot. The finer points of his game is with "quick twitch" footwork, making guys miss, stop and go. Im not sure about his game at this level. Guys on defense in the pros will look to destroy him and test his frame. I know I would as a safety or DB.

Can't see him doing much other then specials and in some occasional packages.
