Hey,

Be sure to tune in for the podcast on Thursday, March 12th at 4pm eastern.

That's right, we are starting an hour early because we need the extra time!

Greg DePalma, Matt Bitonti from Draft Daddy, Colin Lindsay from the GBN Report and I will once again be doing a live mock draft. Basically we have divvied up the teams and will take turns selecting, followed by some analysis of each move. We did it a couple of times last year and it was a lot of fun so be sure to check it out.

I loved the mock draft podcasts last year. Once a couple of unexpected picks are made it changes everything and the 'GM's' have to decide on scenasrios they weren't expecting.

If you guys post on other football message boards try to plug today's show. I think it's going to be a good one and I'd like to hype it up!

Obviously don't go around spamming or anything like that though...

You seriously think the Lions won't take Stafford?

I already fear for the accuracy of this mock...

Old in the middle? :D

Isn't this a guy who runs a site? Is the site Draftnoclue.com? Does it have the Falcons taking a QB of the future in round 2? :D

guy from GBR says Vontae Davis, but the character isn't there. and the host is smart. DT is huge. Jerry would be a good pick too, but with Cushing and Matthews, how do we pass one of them up for the WLB spot?

Darrius Heyward - Bey, I think was the pick. Which i would be perfectly fine with it doesnt fit a huge need but Sage/TJ need the most help as possible. I had fun listening to the show today.

What a god awful pick.

We just spent money on Berrian last year, we need a legit possession receiver like Hakeem Nicks WAY more than we need DHB.

Not to mention right tackle is the biggest need we have

Absolutely GREAT pick for the Saints although I don't see us passing on Crabtree if he's available.

keller isn't a blocker, the Jets have no one else. I didn't go into this trying to get Pettigrew, it just all kinda came together last minute. My options were Pettigrew or Moreno, DHB, Freeman etc all seem kinda like reaches at that point.

Jets won't draft a first round TE in back to back drafts....they aren't THAT stupid when it comes to draft day.

bitonti
03-13-2009, 11:41 AM
Dustin Keller is not a TE. He's a big 245 pound receiver. He's Ramses Barden plus 10 pounds. They have Keller and Dearth (LS) on the roster. Putting Keller on the line and asking him to reach block nasty DE all day long isn't a smart move.

This is not a pick I am advocating it is a pick I am predicting. They want to run alot, whoever the QB is... im telling you guys it's not the pick I want but look at what Rex Ryan is building, taking Pettigrew is like extending your OL. It's not what I would do but i think it is at least a possibility.

Right now, today, they literally don't have a bigger hole on the roster than TE. We can talk about RB, QB, WR but they actually have players on the roster who can in theory play the position. They don't have enough TE to start the year right now.

superman
03-13-2009, 11:53 AM
so they just count their losses with drafting keller last yr? even though he didn't disappoint with like 50 rec for 500+ yards?

i can see drafting a qb or wr that would play sparingly in the 1st roundbecause you're grooming them to eventually start full time, but drafting pettigrew to only play when they wanna run isn't the same thing. it's either saying keller was a bust or pettigrew is an orlando pace at te,

like i said this isn't about my thinking it's about what Rex Ryan and Mike T are gonna do. UP to me I'd probably go defense... but these guys want to have a run-first team and dustin keller is basically their 2WR right now. They can't put Keller out there and make him block all game, it won't work. Keller isn't a complete TE. they need a complete TE and if one is staring them in the face I don't know they pass him up.

Put it another way, who else could they take with that pick who would START day 1. Not a RB (Thomas Jones, Leon). Not a QB (clemens, ratliff). Not a WR (WR almost never start right away). These guys are looking for starters, say what you will about Pettigrew - he's gonna start and he's not a reach.

i think they'd take defense. or wr. then if they just want a te that can block wait for that later. keller is the starter. they can plug in an athletic linemen if they really want to run it all the time. pettigrew is #1 and good value where the jets pick, but te should be wayyyyy low on their list.

Dustin Keller is 6'2 248 and Ramses Barden is 6'6 229. No, they're not even remotely the same and yes, Dustin Keller is a tight end. The Jets do need a #2 blocking TE, but that is never, I repeat NEVER a first round need for any team ever.

Thank you some one else noticed it. Crabtree would never drop drop to 15 (maybe can't really say its the draft) thats way to low and by the Texans at that Andre Johnson had a terrfic year that don't need another big threat wide out.

10 SF - LB Rey Maulauga, USC (GregD)


Oh man. That pick would literally ruin my day. We already have an All-Pro ILB in Patrick Willis and a solid vet in Takeo Spikes. A collossal waste of a top 10 pick. No other pick would piss me off more.

simple question for all the know it alls on this thread

if Curry is worth the #2 pick why isn't he worth the #1 pick? hmm?

and all the so called Jets fans on this thread, do you realize Dustin Keller and James Dearth are the only TE on the roster? how is Rex Ryan Bill Callahan and Brian Schotty going to run the ball with that TE corp?

If your standard for mocks is predicting who the team will pick rather than who you think they should pick then why didn't you take Stafford and why did you refuse to take Smith?

Those facts are really inconsistent with your reasoning for taking Pettigrew...

Nothing was worse than the Maualuga pick though. Like seriously, does that guy even pay attention to whats going on?

If the Jets don't add someone either through free agency or through the draft at wide receiver, they will have Chansi Stuckey/Brad Smith/Dave Clowney as their #2/#3 wide receiver. Three guys with 735 career receiving yards combined.

every LITTLE position gap doesn't need to be filled in the 1st round
