  • 2011 NYJ Draft Discussion

    The 2010 draft is over so I guess we can move on and begin discussing the 2011 draft.

    This draft is stacked at some positions we may be looking at such as DE, OLB and WR.

      Agreed. I don't think the saftey class will be as strong as this years was, but a senior that Im pretty high on is Deunta Williams from North Carolina. He has 12 career interceptions up to this point. He may be the ballhawk that our D might be missing this year.

        Awesome!! I thought about creating this thread but nobody's really been that active.

        Heading into next season there are some pretty clear cut holes...I've been thinking about what position the first round selection gets used on. This should be a fun post to laugh at in about a year.

        DE - A major need on this team right now. Not much depth, youth, or talent there, but Ryan seems to be alright with taking late round/UDFA types and plugging them in. I assume a lot of mocks will have us taking a defensive end, not sure if it'll actually happen. There are a TON of good 5-tech prospects in next draft...at least right now. I thought the same thing last year. Still with Clayborn, Heyward, Bailey, Crick, and Dareus there should be some solid options if the team elects to go that route. I'm not sold they will though.

        FS - The other big hole heading into this season. It appears Brodney Pool is the favorite to start, with Eric Smith and even apparently James Ihedigbo have a chance to start there. But Pool is on a one year deal and neither Smith nor Ihedigbo appear to be long term options right now, though that could change as the season goes on. Donovan Warren is apparently listed as a safety also and brings an intriguing skill set to the spot, but he's got to make the roster and do a whole lot of other stuff before he should really be talked about as a long term answer anywhere besides the practice squad. This doesn't seem to be a huge premium position in the defense, but perhaps they didn't like any of the free safeties in this year's class (DeAndre McDaniel, Deunta Williams, and Rahim Moore stick out as first round possibilities right now, though I feel like I'm forgetting somebody). There are a few decent free safety prospects this year so it's a possibility, but I think like defensive end it's unlikely they go in this direction.

        OLB - This position could still use an addition and appears to be a "premium" position for this defense. With Jason Taylor basically a one year rental and Bryan Thomas not producing much of a pass rush, if Ryan and the scouting department identify a rush OLB they like I think it's a definite possibility that the first rounder gets used on this position. Greg Romeus and Von Miller seem to be the big two at the spot this season, Robert Quinn could probably be a good fit as well and Jeremy Beal and Jack Crawford get some love from some places but I'd be surprised if some other pass rushers don't come out of the woodwork. All of the players everywhere who are first round possibilities are obviously incredibly subject to change at this point, a few of them will go undrafted. This probably seems most likely in terms of need and value to get a first round pick spent on it, but I question whether a good player who fits will be on the board in round 1.

        RT - Is definitely something that could use an upgrade, unless Ducasse ends up on the right side in which case the need should be at LG. Damien Woody makes me sad in pass protection and I think good tackles are a priority to protect the team's investment in Sanchez. Woody's aging anyway and investing in a right tackle would give the team youth at nearly every spot on the OL. It also could have the additional bonus of potentially providing leverage in negotiations with Brick if the guy is capable of playing on the left side too. I'd imagine that'd be something in the back of Tannenbaum's mind as he determines what direction to go in. Don't see a slew of tackles I love right now, especially from the right side, but good offensive linemen tend to pop up during the year after they have good seasons. Gabe Carimi is one who I think could play well on the right side, but depending on the year he and the Jets have they may not be in a position to draft him. Think this may be the second most likely position the first rounder gets used on, but again value is going to be a question. You know that this staff prioritizes having hogs on the offensive line to run the ball behind though.

        CB - Always a possibility with Ryan! If Cromartie either busts or doesn't get retained after the season, a third corner is going to be important. And if Wilson doesn't prove he can handle playing on the outside, which shouldn't be an issue but who knows, finding a #2 corner is an even bigger priority. Lots of good corners this year, Peterson is obviously the big one and then there's a boatload of other guys after him. The rankings should shuffle a lot between now and the draft since it seems a lot of the corners have some flaws. With this team a corner is always a possibility though, unless we have 3 players under contract through the following season I wouldn't rule it out.

        WR - Obviously this position depends a lot on what happens with Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. If neither is retained, which is probably possible, then finding a #1 wideout for Sanchez would be nice. Between Jones, Green, Baldwin, Floyd, and others this WR class should be lovely, so if it's a need they should be able to address it with a really good player. I hope it isn't though, as it'd be better to use picks on other positions (especially the defensive side, oddly enough).

        NT - This is kind of a sleeper position and I'm not sure where to put it. With Jenkins' injury issues Jets fans have been talking about adding a NT for awhile now, at the very least as a successor. Pouha played very well as a sub last year, but if Jenks goes down again this year he's getting older and somebody else should be brought in. What I can't tell is how much of a premium position this is for the organization, since it didn't make a ton of sense to take one in the first or second rounds this year. It could be a very important one in which case if Jenks is hurt this shoots up to the top of the needs list IMO, but it's kind of questionable for me right now. Jerrell Powe is the popular NT prospect right now. Should be addressed at some point depending on what Jenks does, but I'm not sure what happens here.

        Other positions are ILB (depth maybe mid-late rounds), TE (blocker mid-late rounds?), QB (backup mid-late rounds?), RB (seems like they always want more there, just like corner, and there could be depth concerns because Greene and McKnight might get dinged up but I doubt it's a first round need), FB (all set barring something catastrophic), SS (most of the safeties on the roster should be playing there so I think it'll be ok), and then G, LT, and C which should hopefully be set although I could see bringing in a guard to develop.


        Well again this should be way off but that's my thoughts on where our first round pick ends up. Who are some of everyone's favorite prospects this year?

          You guys think Allen Bailey will be available at pick #32?

            I wouldn't bet on it, but given a full college season between now and the 2011 draft, anything can happen.

            I remember when Vince Wilfork was a possibility for the #1 overall pick.




            It was directly after the 2003 draft. :)

                With Jenkins' injury and a possible retirement, NT just became our biggest need, imo.
                Senior Prospects
                Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss
                Kenrick Ellis, Hampton
                Phil Taylor, Baylor

                These guys seem to be the top senior NT prospects. I don't know much about Ellis(seems very intriguing) or Taylor but Powe is an animal.

                  It's really early, but right now I think offense is the way to go. Last year the team managed to do alright with Jenks out, and the defense seems to be able to plug guys in and chug along. Defensive backs seem to be somewhat more important, but the front 7 in particular seems to be something where they can take mid-late round guys, even UDFA's, and have success.

                  Based on that and the fact that the offense is crap right now, I think an offensive guy is the way to go. A few options there. I think LG and RT are both weaknesses, so depending on Ducasse's progress and long-term spot those would be great to address. Also given only one of Edwards and Holmes will be re-signed at best a WR could make sense, 3rd WR for a couple years till J-Co moves on and then a starter. Finally given they like to pound the rock, I'd love a gamebreaker in the backfield. Not sure that kind of RB is really in this draft, but somebody who can catch it out of the backfield and create big plays would be nice.

                  I'd love a NT too, just seems like a need that won't get addressed early based on how Ryan's defense works and the way the staff likes to draft.

                    Oh they'll definitely try to develop the offense more around Sanchez, and you have the draft strategy nailed.

                    I still think getting a stud DL should be a top priority in the offseason. This D would be scary with one.

                      Oh absolutely, a dominant DL would be great. Isn't Ngata a FA soon? Definitely a pipe dream, but he and Rex are obviously familiar with each other. To get a guy in the draft I think they'll have to overlook something - I'm guessing a guy with less than ideal height/length for a 5-tech or a NT where people get concerned about weight. Maybe Clayborn slips too, though his use of that bad arm kind of bothers me. Otherwise those perfect tweeners will hopefully be long gone before the Jets pick.

                      Speaking of things I'd like on defense, a playmaking safety would be awesome with that front 7 and some nice corner play, could roam around and really make some big plays if the right guy ended up in the scheme. There are just so many possibilities right now, not a lot of positions would really surprise me. Depending on how things play out I could see almost any position defensively, and RT/G or WR would make a lot of sense on offense depending on how things go the rest of the year. I'm sure it'll become more clear, but it should be a fun draft next year.

                        Safety should be Mark Barron ftw.

                          That's beyond a pipe dream... not only has he been a fan favorite since he arrived in Baltimore he has said on numerous occasions he wants to be there long term. Keep dreaming on getting him up in NY

                          You guys need very little help on Offense but you need some DL and LB's to compliment your outstanding secondary... IMO

                            Cameron Heyward/Jordan are pretty ideal picks, here's to hoping Adrian Clayborn falls. Rex loves his DBs and blitzing with them in his scheme, however it is becoming much too easy to block as of late and it's been pretty evident that we need a pass rush from our DE or OLB spots.

                            "When it's third and ten, you can take the milk drinkers and I'll take the whiskey drinkers every time."

                              I had the Jets in the forum mock and here's what I did:

                              26. Allen Bailey, DE, Miami (FL)
                              58. Matt Reynolds, OT, BYU
                              122. Steven Friday, OLB, Virginia Tech
                              154. Graig Cooper, RB, Miami (FL)

                              Looking back, I should have taken JJ Watt instead of Allen Bailey. I just really like Bailey's versatility and that would help us out in our 4-3 sets.

                              Matt Reynolds is one of the better eligible RT's available in this years draft so I was very happy that he fell to me. He comes in right away and takes over for the declining Damian Woody.

                              I was very happy to get Steven Friday at the end of the 4th. He's a guy that will move up draft boards as the draft approaches. He probably gives us a better pass rushing option than Bryan Thomas.

                              Cooper gives us explosiveness out of the backfield, something McKnight should be doing.
