The Jet fan killing the Pats for signing ex-Jets is now using an ex-Pat signed by the Jets to prove a point. #irony


Sure did..
..now name 7 more ex-Pats the Jets signed since 2010, and your post would have a point. #Veracity

Bart Hubbuch ‏@HubbuchNYP 27m
Sammy Watkins told me Rex said to him recently that Watkins is so hot "the Jets are trying to trade 10 years of [first-round] picks for me."

 

 

would I give up next years first for Watkins and perhaps a 3rd this year?

 

I probably would, not 100%...but probably would.

 

Seems like the Jets are indeed on Watkins trail

In 5 minutes of research, I found:

 

Ras-I Dowling

Jermaine Cunningham

Damien Woody

Zoltan Mesko

Shawn Crable

 

So it's not 8, but 6 is still not an insignificant number.

 

And if we move the bar back by number of years, it becomes more even; these two teams have been roster and coach sniping ever since Parcells went from Pats to Jets in 1999 (and probably before, though with less fanfare).

Watkins would require trading inside the top 6 at least (Bucs long rumored to snatch him if he's at 7), maybe even top 3. Not happening. Could see a trade up for Mike Evans or Odell Beckham, however. If the Jets choose to keep their picks, Brandin Cooks seems like a reasonable target at 18. Could be a few CB to choose from as well if they go that route.

Doesn't look like the league is too high on Manziel. He even slipped past Dallas. Don't think I would've taken 'em. All the eggs are in the Geno basket and if that doesn't work out we have Vick to lean on, who is a proven commodity

 

I sort of overlooked Pryor. He definitely fills a need, looks like a solid pick.

 

But we still need offense. We need a receiver, I hope they trade back up and get Cooks or Lee. Now I'm not sure they ever wanted Beckham, could've been a smokescreen. Rumors were they were going to trade up to get him but nothing transpired.

I would have been a lot more enthused about it if it wasn't for all the stupid ripping the Jets are going to get for passing on Manziel, when it's even money he slips out of the first round entirely.  Or if we actually had better than #3 corners.

I'm fine with Vick as long as he's healthy, which won't be long.  Geno deserves at least another chance and not to get thrown down an elevator shaft.

They can get receiver later, the draft's chock-full of them this year.  Having Milliner and Wilson as your top two corners with Brady in the division, Watkins/Steve Johnson in Buffalo and Wallace/Hartline in Miami worries me though.

There are, but there is a drop off after the Beckham/Cooks/Lee.

 

Maybe we can get someone like Latimer.


And Watkins to Buffalo bothers me. Yea they gave up a sh!t ton but he's a pain in the ass that I didn't want in this division

Outstanding job by the Jets. So thankful Amaro slipped to us. Pretty much as good as any WR left.

Yup. Every team in the division seems to be getting better except for the Dolphins.

I actually wasn't watching the draft until just before the Jets pick but I watched the ESPN ticker scroll through the second-rounders and went wow, the TE is still there, maybe we'll get him.  And we actually didn't drop the ball on that one.  We needed a TE even worse than a WR in all honesty, and this guy's supposed to be really good.

I'm shocked the Giants didn't get him. I know Francesa wanted him on the Giants. Now that he's a Jet he can bash him with impunity.

Jets finally address WR early in the fourth round with one midget speed guy from Oklahoma (who's also a special teams player) and a big body from UCLA.

They ended up taking a third receiver in Quincy Enunwa. Don't know much about any of these guys...but if one of the 3 turn out to be a good NFLer it would be worth it

 

I think the Tajh Boyd pick is a bit of a waste. Maybe he makes the team as a fringe 3rd stringer...maybe he gets cut. Maybe he catches on as a special teamer after a position change, but I would've gone with an offensive tackle there.

Also, Michael Sam is a Ram. Was a bit worried Woody would demand we take him for the Tebow media circus factor. Thankfully that's over with.

After the whole Martin/Incognito thing this year, the Dolphins needed to tighten their ship and make sure stuff like this doesn't leak out into the media.

 

No it doesn't mean we're going to beat them but it shows that perhaps things are still a bit out of control their. They don't need any more negative PR
