    jets really need to come away with that big 6’3 or 6’4 receiver who can get down the field so sanchez can throw the ball down the field for some jump balls like eli does with hakeem nicks.

    Looks like they’re intent on getting GQ big targets. This is a very talented guy. They are addressing needs. Obviously we’ll have to see how the y pan out, but I the fact they’re drafting talent.

    Now we just have to figure out how to get the ball to him: “Hill is an early entry junior WR out of Georgia Tech who started consistently for the past 2 years and was the sole deep threat in a run-first offense [like he'll be on the Jets, according to Spicer]. He has great length and an outstanding catch radius, which along with his speed make him a serious deep-threat option in the NFL. He has a thin frame and will be hurt by the fact that he ran a very basic route tree at Georgia Tech and teams won’t be able to utilize him for much more than go routes at this point in his career. He also led the nation in yds p/catch,” that last fitting with Walker announcing the pick. Forget blocking, Randy, this guy was picked to stretch the damn field!

    Mike V, I watched Marino at PITT and saw Joe Namath all over again. Couldn’t believe Jets didn’t pick him. Don’t care how good O’brien was, it shoulda been Marino. That being said, I have a good feeling about the Q pick…..I am a believer in a Rex Ryan run D. I think he’s going to do a whole lota exotic things to create mismatches. I think these guys are going all out to save a coaches job. I think he’s going to be put in position to do well…..

  6. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Bleacher Report: “Hill’s size, speed and athleticism are off the charts but he’s still very raw after playing in Tech’s triple option offense. That experience has made him a good run blocker, though, and that’s something the Jets should be able to use. He has the potential to be a home run hitter if everything comes together. If it does, Hill won’t be dissimilar from former Jets WR Wesley Walker, who announced Hill’s selection. The question now is whether the Jets have a QB who can help Hill refine his skills and take advantage of his ability to get behind defenses.” And the HC and OC who know how to do that. But I like this pick ’cause it shows the Jets dropping the ground-and-pound nonsense. Taking yet another RB wouldn’t have done that.

    Just a little dose of reality for the Jet fan dreamers, who need to be brought along slowly: So much for counting on Schilens and Turner to start. Holmes and Hill starting, Kerley in the slot, and Schilens and Turner fighting it out with the back-ups for the #4 and #5 spots is more like it. So you see, uncle joe, it wasn’t that we wouldn’t have loved to have either Jacksons, Lloyd, or Manningham, we just didn’t want to pay for them. Ignoring those FAs and picking Hill is like letting TJ go and starting Greene. And thankfully now we won’t have to hear any more talk about how Braylon’s gonna come back and recapture his 2010 glory. Some Jet fans need to stop looking back so much (bring back BE, J-Co, Rhodes, Lowery!) and start looking ahead.

    I LOVE the Stephen Hill pick. This kid is the perfect compliment to Tone he will stretch the field and open up Holmes underneath. He is a team player which he proved at G Tech not getting many balls but still played hard and is a heck of a blocker. You can’t teach 6′ 4 and 4.39 40 yd dash. Both of our picks are huge talents and both can be dominant NFL players. We never have these kind of players so I’m really excited. If ppl complain about this pick man you will never be happy. Just go look at his highlights and he is gonna be a stud and a defensive coach’s nightmare. Great move to trade up for this kid. We need a Calvin Johnson type wr and not comparing him to calvin but same college and athletic ability so just saying

    Speed and power……That’s what this team lacked. I’m all for that……Best bet in round 3 would be to go OL…………….Then grab Stephen Jackson for a late round pick………….He’s available.

    Jetaholics, saw your HC doing an interview. Dude looks good. Won’t be bringing up my lunch when I see him this year…..He’s not GQ or nothing like that, but he looks good…….

    demario davis, the jets third pick,mel kiper loves this guy,says would have been higher pick if played in sec,I guess it is good bye Scott, thank goodness.cannot knock any of these picks,maybe jet fans can look back on a good draft for once.

    I don’t get it! Somebody explain it to me, 64? Ira? Spicer? This team did next to nothing in free agency, the one position they did address was WR. A big, tall quick WR. So, what do they do in round 2 in this draft? Pick a big, tall quick WR. They talk about ground and pound, so what do they spend a second round pick on? A WR! And in the 3rd round? How do they build on that “ground and pound”? Do they take the best RT on the board? NO! Do they take the best available RB on the board? NO! They take a 235lb OLB

  13. By danny on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    We just added speed at OLB. I just watched his highlights and man he can go sideline to sideline. Wish we had him vs DMC last season. I really like this pick too. Looks like a good 1st 3 rds so far. Some will complain we didn’t go O line but we can sign a vet in free agency. We added some very talented players so far

  14. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Davis isn’t a bad pick, but how long are the Jets gonna neglect OL and S? They just passed up some pretty good guys at those positions in this round and I don’t know how much will left by the 6th and 7th rounds, which are almost like UFA picks. Maybe they’re planning on trading what they can of those picks and a player to get a 4th or 5th round pick. I hope so because going to camp with the OL and S guys we got now is NOTa pretty picture.

    Hope Rex is on with the 1st pick, just dont want a repeat of another 1st round pick on a player who dont want to play> Chris Carter is saying bad advise, in his senior year, also how he lost a couple of coach’s also. That I just dont buy, Either way they got what they wanted with Tebow already, I think 4 prime time TV slots, maybe more! Not bad for not even making it to the playoffs!!

    OOOOHHH Daring pick , I can’t believe these guys …Our picks are great ..O line ,,,,O line, o line next .. then linebacker ,and tight end if there is any

    Just saw we picked up a speedy linebacker , we are meeting all our needs ..speed at linebacker speed power and size at defensive end …I like what I am seeing

    Like I said this morning, scjoe, the problem isn’t really the picks. We TOTALLY need more pass rush from the DL, a fast, deep-threat WR who can take the double coverage off Holmes ASAP, and much faster LBs. The problem is we need so much more — another RB if we don’t give McKnight a chance and cut Powell, at least 1 more S, and at least one starter and a quality backup on the OL — that no matter who we pick in the draft, we’re still gonna have holes. That’s why I was so upset with our pitiful performance during FA. I’m actually happier with our draft so far, but we’re looking like a team that improves to a more competitive 8-8 rather than a contender…if we can decide who the starting QB is, that is.

    Do u ppl not realize we can still pick up free agents and there is a few solid veteran O line free agents to be had. Cmonn we picked up speed speed speed so far and last season we lacked speed. U can always find a solid RT in free agency but you def aint finding a young 6′ 4 WR with 4.39 speed and who can block. Enough with the stupidity ppl its’ been a great draft so far. Nothing is ever a lock to pan out but man we picked up 3 nice young talents

  20. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    If you could “always find a solid RT in free agency,” danny, we woulda done it already and not wasted another couple million re-signing Hunter. Face it, we didn’t want to spend the money in FA to address our needs. I’m okay with these picks, though I have some questions, but we have a LONG way to go!

  21. By scjoe on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    danny, I agree, BUT, my point is, we signed a big, fast WR in free agency, why do we pick the exact same commodity in the 2nd round of the draft? What happened to the “ground and pound?” It wasn’t even addressed in the third round. What do you think will be left with the next pick that don’t come until the middle of the 5th round? Miller or Massie should have been the pick in round 3 (if you are really determined to run a “ground and pound”) If not? Stop talking about it, because from my perspective what we will be seeing is a ground and punt. This team just does not have the personnel to “ground and pound” and this draft did not address it in any way.

  22. By scjoe on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    64, agree. I actually like the Hill selection. But why Schilens in free agency then? They are the exact same players.Why not an OT or a RB (Hillis? Bush?) instead? Honestly, if that were the case I would not have been this bitter about it. It all just seems so wishy washy to me. No direction. No sense. Unless a miracle occurs, which I don’t foresee, the O line and safety position will not be adequately addressed before the start of the season. Addressed maybe. Adequately addressed? No! Not at this point.

    Overall nice first 3 rounds but I’m confused by the Bush safety pick in the 6th round – he’s short with average speed – on the NFL.com site they rated him at 47.5 indicating basically a long term project or special teams player – that’s fine, but Jets need a tall athletic free safety to handle the NE TE duo this season. When the Jets pick came in there were still about 6-7 safeties on the board who were rated much higher than Bush plus, they are taller players from big time schools – this pick has Westhoff’s fingerprints all over – I think the guy should retire, he’s no longer a good evaluator and his teams production on the field has been less than stellar lately – as I’m writing this Belichick just grabbed Alfonso Dennard in 7th round?

  24. By Jersey Joe on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    Anybody like Vontaze Burfict at pick #244 ? I say grab em with this bottom seventh round throwaway pick and see if what Rex can do to turn him back into the freak he was his freshman year at Arizona State!

  25. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    scjoe, it’s no news that Mr T and Rex have no overall philosophy, at least not one that they ever stick to. This goes to what I mean when I say Rex isn’t mature enough to be a HC. He gets briefly excited about players — Allison, Woodhead, Clowney, Cook, Tracy Wilson (joke) — but doesn’t follow up on developing them or even keeping them on the team. He goes all in on ideas he learned about football in his infancy — run the ball down their throats, blitz like crazy –but then lets Schotty throw on 2 out of 4 downs at the goal line and doesn’t pick pass rushers. So it’s no surprise that, like Francessa said, he and Mr T are like kids in a mall with $ buying all the wrong junk. Picking Hill is just a long-overdue bow to reality.

  26. By danny on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    Hill will open up the running game because he is a vertical threat. Teams will not bring 8 in the box with a 6′ 4 lightning fast WR on the outside left one on one with a 5 ‘ 10 corner. This kid will help in our deep passing game, redzone offense, running game and open up Tone underneath. He is gonna help us in a lot of ways. 64 we could sign say Kareem Mackenzie for a 1yr deal or so. There is a few Tackles left in free agency that will def upgrade us over Hunter

  27. By scjoe on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    danny, unless our QB (take your pick) can consistently get the ball deep to Hill (if he even starts) with accuracy, you WILL see 8 in the box. So, what do we have here? Ground and pound, with this set of RBs? With this O line?, particularly the RT? A wide open passing game with TWO (2) big tall fast WRs plus Holmes and Kerley? Which is it going to be? because I am totally confused. The only thing that will make any resemblance to sense at this point would be signing V. Carey (OT) and maybe Bell (safety) because neither was addressed in this draft. Unless you think one of the 6th rd safety’s will emerge as a starter. I don’t!

  28. By danny on Apr 29, 2012 | Reply

    Yes I think and hope we pick up Bell and Carey. Also with that threat out there we did not have last yr with Plax but did have with Braylon in past it will make a huge difference. As for RB I’m very excited to see this Baylor kid play and as for Green he had a bad yr last yr but our line affected that too. Mangold is healthy and I believe Brandon Moore should be healthy so if we can pick up a veteran RT in free agency we should be much better. As far as ground and pound cmonnn u gotta realize yes we will pound the rock but MS is best in playaction so we will throw the football too. Don’t sit and think were gonna run all 3 downs and punt lol . Shotty’s biggest problem was not calling plays that utilize the talents we have
