NFL Draft

Round two of the NFL Draft kicks off in about an hour. Rumors are flying on the sports sites that the Jets are trying to trade up from the seventh slot to draft a QB. Boy, I sure hope not. None of the QBs available this year impress me as being much of an upgrade over Sanchez and Garrard. Maybe if one fell into their laps in, say, the third round... but in the second? When the team desperately needs help at so many positions? And trading UP to get him, which means giving up a lower round pick? That would be as foolish as trading away Revis.

The Jets flourished when Rex could run a ground-and-pound O. They have lost Shonn Greene, their starting RB. They should stay where they are and take the RB out of Alabama if he's still there at seven.

And don't get me started on the first round picks. All the mock drafts had the Jets getting Mingo and Austin at #9 and #13 in the first round. Wrong and wrong. The Browns took Mingo, and the the Rams traded up into the #8 slot ahead of the Jets to get Tavon. Once more, another team drank our milkshake.

Let us not compound the problems by chasing any of these QBs. Not one of them is a sure thing. Give me Eddie Lacy instead, and bring back the ground-and-pound. Sanchez plays best with play action, and that requires a strong ground game.

We have Geno.

No one to throw the ball to, though. No one to run the ball.

But we have five QBs. Sanchez, Garrard, McElroy, Tebow, and now Geno. Wait till Rex unveils his revolutionary five QB offense!

Re: You have Geno!
If they give Geno the proper year or two to be coached up, and let Sanchez or whoever wins the qb spot lead the jets to another average record (at best), another pretty good year or two of draft picks should give the jets enough to work with for a rebuild around Geno.

This is my optimistic take on taking a projected first round QB in the 2nd round without trading up. Not really that bad at all. No real point in drafting a RB in early rounds this year.

Re: You have Geno!
Long time/First time.....(Btw love ASOIAF)Also long suffering jet fan...let's not forget we also have matt sims....6 QB's....

But of course they pick the guy who has been on espn allllllllll day, because what this team needs is more bad publicity for a dubious at best pick.... So we have 6 faux qb's now and I read they're going to cut the one that we have to pay anyway...

I pray to the seven.
