Default Why do the Jets have to draft bust?

I think the franchised is cursed...... By the talk of everyone on here and the guys on TV, Gholston is the biggest bust of the draft....... Why do we always draft bust?? Why is this franchise so bad?? Then the guys on TV also think Dustin Keller was a 3rd round talent, so theres another 1st round TE bust for us....... Why do I even like this team???

I don't see how a guy is a bust when he hasn't played an NFL snap. He has a bust "factor" because he seems to be a bit of a workout warrior that lacks consistency, but that doesn't mean he will be.

over 1/2 of d-lineman that are selected top 10 seem to take plays off. Mario Williams was inconsistent in college and he had 14 sacks as a 2nd year player.

Everyone is saying they are going to be bust, so I guess that means they are going to be bust. No one at all likes Gholston, why did we draft him?

He has the second highest bust chances of the top 6. (Ryan is tops naturally) imo of course. His upside is huge though, higher than Chris Long. I would have taken him too at that point. Who did those people want the Jets to take instead?

Everyone said that the Texans made a huge mistake passing on Bush for Williams. Only way to find out is to wait 3 years.

jetsfan, these are peoples opinions, not actual scenarios. Now that hes is IN the NFL i think he will intensify his workouts and become a hardworker. It seemed like until now everything has been handed to him since he got word he was a first round talent.

Well considering how well Gholston played against the #1 overall pick in the draft and how great he was against LSU I say the experts are nitpicking and really looking for someone to go down on in the top ten. Matt Ryan was just too easy of a target I guess. I think the real reason they went to hard on calling Gholston overated is because like Mario Wiliams during his junior year Gholston took a while to really catch fire and at the end of they year he was the most consistently dominant DE there was and really abused every tackle he faced if you look at the film. That plus he was a workout warrior who was a top 10 pick when in a normal draft he probably should go in the 8-15 range and some people were pimping him for top 4 which is too high for him.

Gholston should be very effective in that system, I don't even think he's the most likely bust in the top 6. I give that honor to Matt Ryan, almost simply b/c he has Joey "Ballgame harrington to show him the ropes.

I do find it interesting that they ended up acknowledging that Chris Long was their preference. The last week or so, many were talking about the fall of Chris Long. It looks like that was just false, as talk has been the Raiders would've probably taken him at 4, the Chiefs, assuming that Dorsey wasn't there, would've taken him at 5, and at 6, the Jets definitively would've taken him.

As for Gholston and Keller, the picks are fine. I didn't think they'd have the guts to pull the Keller pick, but they did, and I applaud them for that. They needed a guy like that to attack the middle. As for Vernon, he should be alright at the least. First off, he's likely to be rotated in and out a bit, with Pace and Thomas there. 2nd of all, they can scheme around any deficiences.

Just stop watching the Jets. It's obvious that they're out to get their fans and lose their commitment to the team.

Why else would they draft Gholston? It's not like they get paid to watch
and analyze every inch of the prospect to make the best decision possible
on what they'll invest tens of millions of dollars.

Damn Jets ownership. Damn yous!

I thought Chris Long was definitely a possibility for Oakland, but apparently they had already assured McFadden that morning that if he was there, they would have taken him. In light of what some of Oakland's coaches have said, I think McFadden was the unquestioned #1 on that board for a really long time.

As for the Jets, I wouldn't worry about Gholston. I've been one of his more outspoken detractors on this site, but the potential there is immense. Maybe he never harnesses all of it, but he'll at least be able to beat an offensive tackle to the edge several times a game and close down on the quarterback very fast playing from that linebacker spot.

Gholston probably never fulfills his potential, who honestly wants to bust their ** for the jets?, but I think that at least he'll get 8-12 sacks just due to his scheme letting him get someone one-on-one where his quickness and bullrush will beat average blockers.

I don't think gholston is a good OLB, he will get sacks bet will suck in coverage and run contain, he is a RDE in a 4-3, I just don't buy him as a full time 3-4 OLB.
