Poorly worded on my part. I'd personally be disappointed with passing on Tavon just because I like him a lot as a player, but I've got no issue with the trade down. The Jets obviously could use more picks.
I don't know that they're really built to run the ball either. With Marty Mornhinwig running the offense this year I'd imagine they'd like to move to being a more passing oriented team, the issue there is obviously the quarterback position but I don't know that the intent is really "ground and pound anymore".
I actually like Franklin a lot as a scheme fit and wouldn't be particularly comfortable with those two getting the bulk of carries either. But I don't know that they'd pay Goodson a couple million a year and trade a 5th for Ivory with as much as they need picks to have either be a third back. Just don't think it's realistic that they take a back at all, let alone in the first round, with all the needs they have and their investment in those two guys.
