    Better run blocker than pass blocker, and a beat slow to come off the ball at times - which HYATT™️ believes is a function of his inability to control his weight and keep himself in the 320# range.
    I took a peek at him late in the season and 330# is like the nice way of saying she looks good - after a chubby chick with a pretty face loses some weight & a little bit of her muffin roll, even though she's still the same old chubby chick.

    so basically we will find out if our GM and/or HC are chubby chasers. tongue
    Oi !!!
    That's not necessarily a bad thing, given the needs of the Jets OL at RT.
    Chubby chix need luv too, after all. Razz

    RT better than LT prospects have a way of falling in the draft a bit, giving the Jets the option to trade back, (if Winston is gone at #6), pick up an extra pick or two, and STILL land a premium RT.
    HYATT™️ can think of worse scenarios for the early round picks.
    The OL needs attention, & in HYATT™️'s view is the #1 priority for a team without a franchise QB - for the obvious reasons of protecting such a lesser QB to give him time to throw more accurately, & opening bigger holes for the RB(s).

    New England and Pittsburgh have used quality OL play to rake in 5 combined Lombardi Trophies over the past decade and a half in a total of 8 Super Bowl appearances. You can probably toss Flacco's & Eli's (2) rings in there as well.

    The Jets have more pressing needs at guard. I think the focus will be there. Wouldn't be shocking to see a RT drafted, but Breno should get another year to prove himself.

    It's worth pointing out, (and I don't feel like doing the research), but I believe the Patriots haven't taken an OL in the first round in the entire Belichick era.

    then again, i wouldn't be basing my draft decisions on the patriots way of drafting. they've had tremendous on-field success, but their drafting history under belichick leaves a lot to be desired.

    Well, if you had felt like doing the research, you would have learned that LT Nate Solder was a 2011 first round pick.  Wink

    Lol, lesson learned.

    I just think drafting #6, and the way we continue to waste opportunities to select difference makers on the offensive side of the ball, it's high time we seize this opportunity. Unless there is an Orlando Pace kind of talent (and there's nothing close in this draft), drafting OL at #6 makes no sense to me.

    For me, I think we try to make a play for one of the two QB's or go after DGB/Amari Cooper. One guy (Cooper) was unstoppable in the SEC for the last 2 years, and the other guy (DGB) is 6'6, 225, runs a sub 4.5 and was an all-sec performer in just his sophomore year at Mizzou.

    in this draft, with the lack (imo) of elite LT prospects worthy of being a top 6 pick, i agree with you not to take an o-lineman. i don't use that high of a pick on a guard or someone who likely sticks at RT.

    my preference would be for an offensive playmaker, but you need to stay true to your draft board. so i wouldn't pigeonhole the pick to either QB or WR

    To be fair, Poindexter, there's first round picks...and there's first round picks. I don't think the Patriots have selected close to #6 overall in the Belichick era, so your actual point has some validity. I agree this team needs elite playmakers on offense, and you don't find those as often in the later rounds. I'd like to see us find one or two in this draft. Pedestrian players give you pedestrian results.

    The problem with QB is that Tampa Bay is selecting one and there is no way they are trading out. Barring something weird happening in the lead-up to the draft, they are taking Winston #1 and will not entertain trade offers.

    That leaves us probably having to make a move up for Mariota and the question is: Is he worth it?

    That brings me back to either Cooper or DGB at #6, FA/trade for QB (Bradford, Locker, Cousins, Glennon, Anderson), and then an additional middle round guy at QB (Petty, Grayson, Hundley, Mannion).

    Finishing out all the tape work, there are 5 draftable QBs in this class, with 1-2 fringe "on the fence" grades.



    Benjamin Allbright @AllbrightNFL · 2h 2 hours ago
    Winston, Mariota, Hundley, Petty, Grayson are draftable. After that... Bridge and Bonner are tools guys that need refinement.

    I think you can argue both sides. Playmakers are needed on this offense. Someone along the lines of Amari Cooper. But for those (like myself) who believe in building the trenches as a starting point, you could make Scherff the pick. If the value doesn't line up, trade back a few spots and take him later.

    The only two positions I wouldn't like at #6 are defensive line and running back. (And of course no kickers, punters, long snappers, or fullbacks). We have so many needs, I don't think you can go wrong. It's gotta be BPA, or someone your scouts and GM have fallen in love with. A can't-miss prospect.

    Many sleeping on Xzavier Dickson/Alabama; terrific 3-4 OLB prospect. Can rush the passer or play in space. Rebounded in '14 after poor '13

    One of the rumors is Cleveland may try to move up, packaging some of their 10 picks, to grab him. I wonder if someone will really sell their future on a Qb with so many warts.

    For those measuring, P.J. Williams/CB/Florida State posted a 41.5-inch vertical jump during combine training in past week.



    Tony Pauline @TonyPauline · Feb 3
    Impressed as hell by Danielle Hunter/LSU after watching film. Athletic, instinctive, can rush the passer & play in space. Top 45 material




    Tony Pauline @TonyPauline · Feb 3
    Also like the 2nd/3rd tier safety's coming from SEC: Ronald Martin/LSU, Nick Perry/Alabama, Robenson Therezie/Auburn & Braylon Webb/Mizzou

    I'm not hearing Trae Waynes CB 6'1"182 from Michigan St. name being mentioned a lot; however, this kid might be the best CB in this years draft. He's tall, fast, great hips and recovery speed. He'd be a nice #2 next to Milliner. I can't wait until he's healthy, because a few Jet posters will be eating crow !!!! Rolling Eyes
