the consensus around the league is that we are looking to take a CB first round, which will depend on our off-season and obviously the flow of the draft.....so, whos the choice?

with leon hall's strong 40 showing, 4.39, he will almost definitely be taken top 20, and possibly even top 10 now, i'm dissapointed beacuse i thought he would have a weak combine and maybe fall to us at 25

now i don't think we have a shot at Hall or Revis, and McCaughley had a good combine cuz i think he ran like a 4.39 or something in that range, so i dont think he will be left by then, and many are now projecting Chris Houston to jump into mid-to-late round 1 so he might not be left either

so who do we take?
one of those 4 if they are there? if so whats your guys order of those 4?
and if they are gone?
ross (4.50)? hughes (4.65 and will likely drop majorly due to his horrible combine)? eric wrigth (4.36)? josh wilson (4.39)?

Houston or Mccaughley however i think a guy in the front 7, however any cornerback is gonna struggle if there is no pass rush, so that issue needs to be addressed as well

I like Wright in the first if those guys are gone and we go corner. He seems like a pretty good guy who has learned from mistakes and a very good player. Good size and speed, he could turn out to be a legit corner for us.

We shouldn't be going corner in the first round. I think we need to pick up a 3-4 outside linebacker. Guys like Anthony Spencer, Jarvis Moss, and Quentin Moses or Justin Blalock if he's there. In our second round, we should be looking at cornerback and runningback.

The bigger question to me is why? Why do the Jets need a cornerback so freakin bad? I mean, the Jets don't have the best corners, but I wouldn't categorize them as the worst either. I hear how so and so corner (Hall, McCauley, whomever) will be the solution to the Jets problems at corner, but that is what Justin Miller was supposed to be too. To me, the Jets have bigger needs on the OL and in the front seven.

I agree, I'd probably rather have Blaylock over any CB in the draft besides Hall and MAYBE Revis.

Realistically Houston would be the most likely of scenarios...
If not a CB then...
Carriker (IA highly unlikely)
Blalock
Sears
Harrell
Meachem

Also OLB in the 1st would be a WASTE.. the Jets are going after Bowens from the Dolphins and seem to like him to start (read Tom Rock's column) We are DEEP at LB if they sign Bowens and especially if they don't cut Barton. 1st round LB is like saying we need a 1st round RB (after the trade)

He could suck in coverage for all we know, but those are very solid measureables. Is he eligible for the draft? Is he declaring?

"Former Cal Poly cornerback Courtney Brown established some eye-catching marks at the Pro Day held Tuesday at San Jose State. So much so that the NFL Network is doing a feature story Thursday afternoon on the Mustang senior." so i guess more information will come out today, but from what ive seen he seems like quite the stud

Per NFL.com (and I could be a little off with these numbers) he benched 225 15 times, ran a 4.35 and a 4.32 in the 40, and had a 41.5 inch vert at 6'1 3/8 and 200 lbs.

what about Fred Bennett in round 2, our first 2nd rounder? He has good size and he's pretty fast.

he should be there in the 3rd round 2nd is way too high for him.

mcauley is not going to be a good fit for the 34 he's too much of an individual player liek Miller (who was not darfted by mangini; we have to keep him for KR and bc hes physical an okay nickel) Between Bennet and Jackson one will be there at 25th in the 3rd which is when we should draft them and if not we take Josh Wilson and plug for a year (he might even be solid) and see how he does and if its not a perminent solution then we go WR, CB in next years draft

The only way I'd want them to take a corner is if one of the top CB prospects had a monumental drop to one of our second round picks... and even then, I'd be on the fence.

CB is not a position that you should spend on, unless you have someone like Champ Bailey. Particularly in this system, when the main job of a CB is to occupy a zone. It's far more important to build through the trenches, something we need to do. Maybe in the 2009 draft, when we've built a great young OL and DL across the board, then you can decide to invest some cap space on CB (like the Pats this year with Samuel, didn't spend on CB until both lines were built).

Blalock then Wright. Great first two draft picks

Wright SHOULD be there for your first 2nd round pick

I like Ross as a cornerback.

i think it completely depends on whos there at our pick for waht round we choose a corner, if someone like hall revis or houston is there in roudn 1 maybe we take one there, if a top 7-8 corner is there at round 2 we take them there, or maybe we wait for jackson or bennet in roudn 3
