Okay here we are months before the NFL draft and we have a top 10 pick.

Plenty of talent here and there are many options available to the organization, including moving down in the draft and picking up more draft picks.

Regardless of what the Jets do, my question is do we go need or BPA.
While some will agree with me that the offensive line must be addressed, others say it can be addressed later on in the draft.

Needless to say, many of us want the Jets to address the QB position, but when and would we be better off waiting until next year to fill that need?

So do we take the BPA? My drawback with BPA is that it doesn't address our greater need and that would be strengthening our weakest link.
NOW, don't get me wrong if a guy like Revis is there , than for sure we go with BPA.
However, if not, than the need has to be addressed.
My point being having a team loaded with one specific type player and ignoring the obvious needs has hurt this team.

Case in point, the fan base for 4-5 years has been pointing out a need for a legit pass rusher. On defense this still is an area that needs to be addressed.

Today the fan base has been calling out for an improved OL and OL men. We have been doing it the past 3 years.
Had the jets addressed these two needs over the past 4 years I doubt we would be in the position we are in currently.
Tanny probably would still be the GM too.

So as much as I would like to take the BPA at this juncture we need to build up our weakest link.
BPA fall to teams in the 25-32 rounds, as well as the later rounds.

I have always been a BPA no matter what. When you start to reach most of the time they end up as a bust or you could have gotten him by trading down or waiting on your next pick. If you continue to pick BPA then your team will be very good for the long hall.

If we actually had a team in place which was playoff bound and possibly a superbowl winning side but say needed a dynamic wide receiver then fine reach a little but fill the need that may help you win a ring. In our case this is NOT a playoff team especially considering the fact that until 2014 our salary cap is awful. We go BPA who in the next 2-3years will be a stud for this team right when hopefully we have a good team

Stay true to your board. The jets have no business drafting a qb this year. Bpa is the best way to go. Fortunately for us a pass rusher should be there at 9. A legit back, wr, te, or ol should be there in round 2. Trading down is a possibility if you stay true to the board as well.

Choose the BPA out of all our needs.

Yeah you wanna roll with Mark Sanchez for another year? Only way I wouldnt want a QB this year is if we sign Matt Moore, or Alex SMith.

I don't want to waste a pick on a potential bust. There are reasons why none of the qbs in this draft are ranked in the top 25. We could call philly I doubt chip will roll with Foles. But I rather wait a year. Sanchez will be here regardless. If our roster will look like [inappropriate/removed] anyway does it matter who the qb is.

Exactly I just can see wasting a pick for sake of picking a need. Because if the guy sucks won't it still be a need anyway.

BPA is the way to go, especially in the first round.

weaker teams often go BPA period, because they have so many needs and need a player to build around .
Example; Calvin Johnson/Lions , Pat Willis/49ers

Stronger teams go BPA in positions they are weak at since they are really good in other positions.
Example; Nick Perry/Packers , Jones & Hightower/Patriots.


For us, it's hard to tell what direction we should go right now.Because we don't see the next Megatron, Pat Willis, or AP in this draft yet. I think a lot of teams will go BPA because of the lack of elite talent in this draft.

I think it should be BPA at a position that makes sense

example: Dee Milliner and Chance Warmack are the best on the board

Warmack makes more sense for the Jets then Milliner

Exactly, the answer is always the BPA at a relative need. If it's close you go with the greater need, otherwise you take the BPA. Obviously, within reason since you wouldn't take a player that has no place on your team but we're not talanted enough to be in that situation anyway.

We already have players to build around.

Yeah I was adding to my first comment. Choose the BPA out of all of our needs. OLB, OG, QB, etc since we already have solid players. But we don't have anyone to build around on offense.

Tannenbaum had been using BPA. Now, we don't know what new GM's strategy.

I guess Jets will continue using BPA strategy.
