New York Jets Draft: Thoughts On Hill And Davis

3

A few quick thoughts on the New York Jets decision to trade up for wide receiver Stephen Hill and draft linebacker DeMario Davis

1. It appears the New York Jets are taking the best player available instead of looking to fill needs. They have ignored right tackle, outside linebacker, and safety despite major holes in their depth chart. With no picks in the 4th or 5th round, look for them to sign Yeremiah Bell, Chris Johnson, and maybe Vernon Carey down the road when they come to the realization that Wayne Hunter, Vlad Ducasse or Austin Howard isn’t the answer at right tackle.

2. I love the Stephen Hill selection, he is a physical freak who has the right attitude to take advantage of his natural abilities to become a big time player in the NFL. It is fair to question the value of spending a 2nd round pick on a receiver in a Ground and Pound offense but if Hill becomes the needed big play threat opposite Santonio Holmes and makes Sanchez that much better it will be worth it.

3. Davis is a great athlete with a high motor who will hopefully be starting next to David Harris at inside linebacker by next year. The Jets have put together the pieces to play a much larger share of snaps in the 4-3 instead of a 3-4. How about this for a 3rd down line up? Coples and Maybin at end. Wilkerson and Pouha at defensive tackle. Harris and Davis at linebacker. Revis, Cromartie, Wilson, Landry and a free safety in the secondary. That should be a line up that gets after the quarterback.

  1. I love the 2nd round pick!
    The 1st and 3rd has me wondering WTF just happened..

    I would of thought the Jets would of drafted a OLB in the first. (they might change to a 4-3 but Ryan has ran a 3-4 for so long it makes me think that wont happen unless its 5-7 plays a game.

    The 3rd round I would of drafted a RT there were plenty of solid O-linemen out there

  3. I think the JETS did the best they could in teh draft, just wished they would have put Tebow on tehb line for a pick at OLB or RT, been a good trade no matter who they got, even a waterboy (person)
