Jets Trade up with the Titans to Draft QB Paxton Lynch at 15th.

NY Jets Get: 15th Overall and 6th Round Pick (193rd)

TN Titans Get: 20th Overall, 3rd(83rd) and 4th(118th)






And with the Tennessee Titans first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.........................





1st Round (20th Overall)
*From Jets
<> NT Jarran Reed, Alabama [6’3 ~ 310lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: NT Bennie Logan, Ravens

Quote:
Stats to know:
Ranked second in the nation with a +39.9 grade against the run and led all interior defensive linemen in run stop percentage at 13.4 percent

What he does best:
• Technique is excellent, rarely caught off balance or moved off the point of attack
• Handles double teams better than most defensive tackles in the class
• Excellent at two-gapping, finding the ball, and making the play
• Can play head up on blockers, whether against centers, guards, or tackles. Brings versatility to the DLine against the run
• Five batted passes tied for third in the nation among interior defensive linemen
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 5.2 | Vert: 31 | Broad: 8'08 | S-Shuttle: 4.75 | 3-cone 7.77



Quote:
Bottom Line:
Reed is an Elite Run Defender with the lower body strength to command his gap, but the instincts and timing to be productive as a tackler rather than just a space ­eater. Reed is rarely moved at the point of attack and he knows how to shed in make plays, as indicated by his nation-leading run stop percentage of 13.4 percent. He can play nose tackle, but can also kick out as a 3-4 defensive end if needed.








2nd (33rd)
<> RT Jason Spriggs, Indiana [6’6 ~ 305lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: OT Lane Johnson, Eagles

Quote:
Stats to know:
Third- highest pass blocking efficiency among Power-5 left tackles

What he does best:
• Elite level anchor and lower body strength. Great movement when locked in on double teams
• Fantastic athlete that can get out and run with the best of them
• Extended experience running outside zone. Showed ability to control blocks on the move
• Won on 60 percent of his one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl, the highest rate of any tackle
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.94 | Vert: 35 | Broad: 9'07 | S-Shuttle: 4.4 | 3-cone 7.57 | Bench: 31 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
Spriggs is athletically special, and nowhere was that more apparent than at the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine, where he was the top prospect at his position in four events. He's also very strong (31 bench reps) and light on his feet. He has the anchor in pass protection and willingness to block through the whistle to be the type of prospect NFL offensive line coaches will covet at either tackle position and the ability to play in the NFL for a long time.








2nd (43rd)*From Rams
<> DE Jonathan Bullard, Florida [6’3 ~ 285lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: DE/DT Malik Jackson, Jaguars

Quote:
Stats to know:
Top grade against the run among interior defensive linemen in nation in 2015, sixth in the nation with 42 stops.

What he does best:

• Beats blockers whether lined up head up or while penetrating, can disrupt and finish in the running game
• Can play outside at 5-tech and kick inside on 3rd down as a pass rushing DT
• Very good block recognition. Feels where the block is coming from and can defeat all block types
• Can handle double teams on the interior and play stout at the point, and always finds the football
• Anticipates the snap, will get a few great jumps off the ball
• Knocks blockers off balance with initial punch
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.93 | Vert: 32 | Broad: 9'08 | S-Shuttle: 4.56 | 3-cone 7.31 | Bench: 23 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
Bullard is a three-year starter for the Gators. He is slightly undersized for the position but he is extremely quick and explosive. Against the run, he has an explosive first step and uses a nifty arm-over move to create negative plays and as a pass rusher, he uses his quick feet and hands to work through edges of blockers. Overall, Bullard can start on almost any defense and he can be a real disruptive presence on the inside and out.








2nd (45th)*From Rams
<> TE Henry Hunter, Arkansas [6’5 ~ 250lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: TE Zach Ertz, Ravens

Quote:
Stat to know:
Recorded zero drops in 2015; earned the highest receiving grade in the draft class each of the previous two seasons.

What he does best:
• Graceful runner; can put pressure on safeties with his speed up the seam and runs away from linebackers on drags.
• Some of the best hands in the class—only two drops on 90 catchable passes the previous two seasons.
• Ultra-consistent player—zero games with a receiving grade below -1.0 the previous two seasons.
• Produces well both in-line (78 percent of snaps) and from the slot (21 percent of snaps).
• Body control to maneuver around chips/jams and to create separation at the top of his routes.
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.68 | Vert: 31.5 | Broad: 9'05 | S-Shuttle: 4.41 | 3-cone 7.16 | Bench: 21 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
Henry was a three-year starter at tight end for the Razorbacks. He has ideal size, athleticism and ball skills. He lines up as a traditional hand-in-the-ground tight end but he will also flex out in the slot. He has a quick swim release to avoid defenders and he's a smooth, fluid route runner. He is very quick at the top of his route and he knows how to use his frame to shield off defenders. He has strong, reliable hands. He tracks the ball naturally down the field. In the run game, he is effective initially to fit up and wall off but he struggles to sustain. Overall, Henry has the potential to be an upper-echelon pass-catching tight end at the next level.








3rd (64th)
<> WR Tyler Boyd, Pittsburgh [6’1 ~ 200lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: WR Keenan Allen, Chargers

Quote:
Stats to know:
Dropped just 10 of the 182 catchable passes thrown his way between 2014 and 2015

What he does best:

• Diverse route runner who has success on the majority of routes ran in 2015. Had at least one reception on 13 different routes, with no more than 191 of his receiving yards coming on a single route type
• Despite this, the post was his best route, catching all nine catchable passes thrown his way on posts for 191 yards and two touchdowns
• Smart route runner with good footwork, something that helped him make the reception on 93 percent of the passes thrown his way on hitch routes
• Versatility extends to position too. Spend most of his snaps at outside wide receiver, but also spent 223 snaps in the slot, so should fit most NFL offenses in some way
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.52 | Vert: 34 | Broad: 9'11 | S-Shuttle: 4.35 | 3-cone 6.9 | Bench: 11 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
Despite experiencing uneven quarterback play during his time at Pitt, Boyd became the most prolific pass-receiver in the school’s history, setting records for receptions (254 in three years) and receiving yards (3,361). As a freshman, Boyd didn’t disappoint, garnering third-team All-ACC honors with 85 catches covering 1,174 yards and seven scores. He also ran for 108 yards and earned 425 kick return yards for the season, as well as returning a punt 54 yards for a score in the team’s bowl game. Boyd received first team all-conference nods as a receiver in his sophomore (78-1,261, eight TD receiving) and junior (91-926, six TD receiving, 349 rush yards), while collecting second-team All-ACC honors as a returner in 2014 (442 kick return yards, 162 punt return yards). With all of that production in just three seasons, it was no surprise Boyd entered the 2016 NFL Draft.








3rd (76th)*From Rams
<> S Darian Thompson, Boise St. [6’2 ~ 210lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: S Morgan Burnett, Packers

Quote:
Stats to know:
Fifth-best grade in this class and owns the school record with 19 interceptions, including 5 this past season.

What he does best:
• Looks to have the best range and ability in the deep middle of the field of any of the top safety prospects. Can be the elusive single-high free safety that the Titans need
• Has excellent ball skills and can pick the ball off, adjusting to it in flight, had five INT's in 2015 as well as another five passes broken up
• Takes good angles to the ball and the pass, and looks comfortable in space with more than enough athleticism to make plays
• Plays the run aggressively and with strength. Can set the edge against pulling linemen and make aggressive plays against running backs and blockers
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.58 | Vert: 32.5 | Broad: 9'10 | S-Shuttle: 4.33 | 3-cone 7.26 | Bench: 12 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
He doesn't just look like a free safety, he's got the kind of size that can rival most players in the NFL. At 6'2", few receivers are going to be able to cleanly jump over him for deep passes. Because of his size and agility, he's got much more room to let a receiver get behind him so he can undercut the route and intercept the ball. If he ends up with a bad angle, he can probably still get his hand on the ball and knock it down. He's also got quite the impressive ability to get into the backfield if asked to. He can pull linemen away from the edge if needed, or chase down a ball carrier in the backfield. Purely from an upside standpoint, his potential seems limitless.





3rd (83rd)*From Jets
<> OT/G Joe Dahl, Washington St. [6’4 ~ 305lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: OT David Bakhtiari, Packers

Quote:
Stats to know:
Posted the top pass-protection grade in the nation each of the last two years, although Washington State’s quick-hitting passing game does protect him a bit.

What he does best:
• Excellent movement skills, rarely beaten to the outside. Surrendered pressure to the outside once every 140.3 snaps, fourth-best in the class
• Gets into position quickly in the run game, and could develop into a zone blocker, but has little experience run blocking
• Can get into position on the backside cut-off on zone plays, but lack of power comes into play with sustaining the block
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 5.18 | Vert: 31 | Broad: 9'01 | S-Shuttle: 4.77 | 3-cone 7.64 | Bench: 28 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
There is a lot to like about Dahl, but to be successful he has to fall into the right situation. He is not a plug and play guy at this point. He needs time to fine tune the technique of playing guard and to put on about ten pounds of muscle before he is ready to contribute. However, if he has a chance to develop in these areas he can step in and start in a few years. He shows the agility and quickness to block in space and the mental capabilities to handle whatever opposing defense can throw at him. If nothing else he offers offensive line depth at guard (or tackle in a pinch) with a chance to become more.








4th (118th)*From Jets
<> CB Kalan Reed , Southern Miss [5’11 ~ 200lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: CB Casey Hayward, Chargers

Quote:
Stats to know:
Had third-highest coverage grade in the class, notched 18 combined interceptions and passes defensed from only 89 targets

What he does best:
• Makes plays on the football. Reed either intercepted or broke up a pass with a deflection on 20.2 percent of his targets this past season — one of the highest rates in the nation
• Plays well in both man and zone coverage. Was confident in either throughout the season and was only improving as the season wore on
• Fits the size, speed and athleticism profile that NFL teams are looking for. Reed measured at 5-foot-11 and 199-pounds at his pro day before running a 4.38 40-time and jumping 41.5 inches in the vertical, which would have tied for the best figure recorded at the combine this year
• Closes quickly on underneath routes and arrives with impact at the catch point, often jarring the ball loose even if it gets to its intended receiver. In addition to his 14 PDs he forced four more incompletions with hits that didn’t actually touch the football but still broke the pass up
• Smooth mover, can transition well and adjust to routes and receiver’s moves without losing balance and speed
• Will make big hits in the run game or short area passing. Saved a touchdown against Texas State on fourth down in the shadow of the goal line that was one of the plays of the season
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.38 | Vert: 41.5 | Broad: 10'07 | S-Shuttle: 4.17 | 3-cone 6.87 | Bench: 11 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
His experience playing in a variety of coverages, along with his quick twitch movement skills and athletic ability, gives teams a good amount of options with Reed. You can play him in man coverage, whether it's on or off, and have him mirror the receiver's every movement and feel comfortable about him reacting and anticipating the receiver's routes, while also being able to tackle the catch because of how efficient he is as a tackler. His ball skills give him an advantage as he's always aware of looking back for the football, but not taking a big gamble in coverage. Teams looking for a press CB will not be the type of team that takes a chance on Reed because of his lack of experience in press, but for teams that want a quick twitched player who can break on routes in a hurry, this is your guy.









5th (157th)

<> Rush/OLB Tyrone Holmes, Montana [6’2 ~ 255lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: OLB/DE Olivier Vernon, Giants

Quote:
Stats to know:
2015 FCS Defensive Player of the Year, finishing his career second in school history with 34 sacks and 49 1/2 tackles for losses.

What he does best:

• Super-productive (18 sacks in 2015, led all FCS defenders)
• Strong, long arms with good leverage at the point of attack. Can bully tight ends one on one.
• Quick off the edge. Often had the offensive tackle beaten to the outside before he had time to set his feet.
• Won inside and outside, showed an occasional spin move and speed to power
• Anticipates the snap, will get a few great jumps off the ball
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.59 | Vert: 37.5 | Broad: 9'05 | S-Shuttle: 4.28 | 3-cone 7.0 | Bench: 28 reps



Quote:
Bottom Line:
As mentioned earlier, Holmes led the nation in sacks in 2015. He has a relentless motor and a very quick first step, allowing him to get into the backfield in a matter of seconds. Not to mention, he is a sure-fire tackler once he reaches the quarterback. His well built but athletic frame allows him to deflect passes when blitzing and cut off potential throwing lanes. At 250 pounds, he is big enough to bump around with NFL linemen but slim enough to move well.








7th (222nd)
<> KR/WR Jakeem Grant, Texas Tech [5’6 ~ 165lbs]



Pro Player Comparison: KR Darren Sproles, Eagles

Quote:
Stats to know:
Forced 33 missed tackles on just 91 receptions in 2015, finished with 1268 yards and 10 touchdowns. Also logged 39 kick returns for 1017 yards and 2 TD's.

What he does best:
• Outstanding in space. 33 missed tackles forced were five more than any other receiver in college in 2015; averaged 9.6 yards after the catch per reception.
• Speed to burn. Pair that with his ability to make people miss, and it’s not surprising that he had receptions of 53, 60, 75, and 90 yards in his final year at Texas Tech.
• Not afraid to go across the middle. Saw only six catchable passes on crossing routes, but caught five of them.
• Can create big plays and set up better field position on special teams. Had a kick return of at least 30 yards in 8 of 12 games in 2015, including a 103-yd return for a TD.
• Pro-Day Results: 40: 4.37 | Vert: 37 | Broad: 9'09 | S-Shuttle: 4.03 | 3-cone 7.03 | Bench: 15 reps



Quote:
Bottom line:
If nothing more, Grant deserves a shot in the NFL as a kick returner. He’s not going to be a No. 1 WR, but he has shown the ability to create big plays when he gets the ball in his hands. His success in the league ultimately might come down to how creative the coach of the team who drafts him is, but at the very least, it should be exciting to watch him on special teams.

Eh not high on Reed or Robinson from Bama. I think both will be average players at best. I like Spriggs potential but I do think he needs time to develop his strength. Converted TE like Lane Johnson but even Johnson wasn't this raw. Not seeing what others are seeing in Bullard. Really like Henry. I think even at worse, he can be a good #2 TE. Really like Boyd especially in the 3rd although I doubt he falls. Same goes for Thompson. The rest is pretty solid hitting on important needs. The trade is good value. I've actually been thinking of a trade back with the Jets but it involved Wilkerson and our 45th pick. They move up for Lynch and get an extra 2nd while we take on a mega contract.

I would LOVE to trade for Wilkerson, but with him not signing his franchise tender and no guarantee for a long term contract, that idea is unfortunately nothing more than a dream.........

Nothing from the Bama linemen in the draft say superstar to me. I honestly feel like I'm watching different players from other analysts.


So I wouldn't be thrilled, but I'd be aight with it.

Love Boyd. Really like Bullard.I like Jakeem Grant too.

Everyone else is cool. Neutral about them.

The signing of his tender literally isn't an issue. He'd sign it ASAP once something was in place. It's more just the timing, it would have to happen before we were on the clock. Same with the contract, that would essentially have to be agreed.

I don't really love the idea of dropping from 1 to 20 without getting a high caliber vet like Wilkerson (which is a dream).

I like Jarran Reed but he is not a NT imo.

But other than that +++ draft.
