It's amazing how great minds think alike. LOL

What rd do you see Janzen Jackson going in?

If he can stay out of trouble he will be a steal for some team. IMHO

If Jeffrey is there at #58 I'd have no problem taking him, but he's projected to go early in the 2nd or possibly very late in the 1st. Unlike you though, I'm seeing negative traits in each of them I don't like. With Jeffrey it's his weight gain during the season (230+) and then dramatic loss for the Combine and Pro-Day. Which one will show up at camp?

Yep

If Jeffery falls to 35 or below would you consider trading up for him?

Ive seen Wright clown DB's and Randall flying around the field snatching balls out of the air.

Which is why the Texans wisely passed on him, despite the predictions of a number of draft "experts" that the Texans would take him in the first round.

Early on, Alshon Jeffery and Mohammed Sanu look like they would have been well worth the Texans taking. I'm sure Posey will make us all forget those guys, though.

I was hoping like hell we'd take Alshon. That guy would have been sweet in this offense.

But I do like posey. He has some skills.

Default Re: Stephen Hill

In general pretty weak class. I look forward to next season crop to address WR position. Hill, Jeffery, Randle, Sanu all did not warrant a 1st rd. grade. Nor did AJ Jenkins who went #30th to San Francisco or Brian Quick #33rd St. Louis. This is what separates elite teams, those who build & stick to their draft board despite wanting a specific position. Posey fits right in with the rest of them but Texans valued him worth 68th pick, pick despite needing WR help. Salary constraints keep them from going free agency route or trading for established one as well.

Quote:
Cornerback Antonio Cromartie agitated teammates last month when he called himself the second best receiver on the New York Jets.

That might be Cromartie's worldview, but it's not Rex Ryan's. The Jets coach has named rookie Stephen Hill as the starter across from Santonio Holmes, The Star-Ledger reported Thursday.

There's little surprise in the announcement. The Jets are paper thin at receiver and Hill is the obvious choice, despite his uneven preseason.

As the last sentence of the quote indicates, this appears to say more about the state of the Jets receiving corp than it does about Stephen Hill. Still, it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the season.

Still, Hill starting contradicts Rich Cimini's "disappointment" piece.

Not really. He was an early pick in the draft on a team needing wr and playmaking help.

It's not like we haven't seen teams cram players into the starting line up before they were ready or deserving.

Never mind, looks like injuries/no-preseason are the culprit. Man, they have nothing behind Santonio.

1.Having Sancez/Tebow as your QB doesn't help either.

2. Exhibit A = KJ/Babin/D.Brown etc....
