Day 1 Draft Recap

Postby killiansjmd » Sat Apr 28, 2007 11:18 pm

Jets were very agressive today moving up in both the 1st and 2nd rounds to select Darrelle Revis (CB, Pitt) and David Harris (ILB, Mich).

I think we added two quality players to our defense plus Revis is an oustanding punt returner.

Hopefully we can trade off McCareins and Barton before Day 2 for some additional picks but I doubt it happens.

Obviously noone knows if Revis & Harris will pan out, but I really like how the Jets were agressive for a change. They really wanted these 2 players and they did what it took to get them. The Jets did really well in last years draft and that was year 1 for this current management group. For the 1st time in a long time I'm confident that they know what they're doing. I have a feeling that we'll look back at this draft and smile. :-)


On another note, man NE is going to be sick this year. They acted like the Redskins in the offseason. Only difference is they actually made great pick ups. :,-(

Well let's hope Moss blows up everything that team stands for!

Week 1 is going to be one hell of a game! Can't wait!

Agreed. I can't wait to get to the Meadowlands and tail gate before the New England game. I can't wait for Moss to make that team explode.
A win next week and all is forgotten.
