NFL Draft, Day 3

The Giants draft is looking very strong. No spectacular moves, but solid players who will make solid contributions. Grabbing Nassib in round four to back up Eli and groom as his successor was a great move.

The Jets draft... two defensive players in round one look okay, but considering how high they were taken, you had to hope for more. Neither one looks like a game-changer. And taking Geno Smith will set back the club years. Sanchez is likely to be released now, which means we are starting all over, and with a much iffier prospect than Mark was when he was first drafted,

WVU fan
I actually live in WV and have followed Geno for his four years here at WVU. I met him a couple of times as well. In the right system, Geno could be a great QB. Looking at his first three years with WVU, he was not the star he became under Dana Holgerson (Coach of WVU) who is more pass oriented in his schemes. Given guidance, Geno Smith could be an asset to any NFL team. It is unfortunate that that guidance doesn't exist at the NY Jets. If last season is any indication, Geno might just sit and watch them shoot themselves in the foot until one or both QB's get injured, or he may be shoehorned in to confuse a defense. Neither of these scenarios play to Geno's strengths and will only serve to damage/ruin his future prospects. As a Geno Smith fan, I don't think there could have been a worse team to pick him up.

St. Louis on the other hand! They took BOTH of our awesome WR's in Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin. With Tavon returning punts and kickoffs and Bailey's magnetic fingers, St. Louis may become my new team to watch. That's just my two cents.
