So the jest basically swapped revis for Milner?????? What the **** were they thinking? They need so much more than an often injured corner. They have Wilson and cromartie. I thought the revis trade was good for them, not anymore after last night.
I'm a best player available type of guy and if those were the best players on their board I'm glad they took them but I was annoyed we went D both times, I really wanted Eifert at 13 BUT I am not a draft expert so I don't know.
I didn't think Milliner was a bad pick, but listening to the NFLN guys rip him, my next thought was what the hell did I miss? Richardson was a bad pick. Not cause it was a reach (Most had him to Carolina) but he doesn't fit their D. If they wanted to go DL they should've taken Star
Milliner is not the best CB in the draft. He's high on draft board because he's a plug and play starter in Game 1. But his upside is limited and his injury history is troubling. I hated the pick for Miami at 12, it's indefensible for NYJ at 9.
Say what you like, but the Jets got a first rounder for Revis and spent it on a replacement CB who will never hold a candle to Revis. I'm not a regular Jets basher - I have better things to do - but that was a dumb-as-f*** pick.
Richardson, while it might not have been a huge need, was a very solid pick at 13. Kudos. Rounds 2 to 5 are loaded with good receiver and tight end options. A team could get Tavarres King in the fourth and Jake Stoneburner in the fifth and make out like complete bandits in a season or so. Just one example of the depth. That's why it's unforgivable to burn a high first rounder on such an uninspiring pick.

Remember- you don't draft for this year, you draft to build your team for years to come. Maybe we can address the O in next years draft? FA? trades?
