Ryan Marcone gives the perfect New York Jets 2017 draft from the head…and from the heart
In the world of the NFL there are always two combating forces at work: the passion of the players who every day muster the emotion it takes to throw oneself into the most brutal sport in the world, and the business side of the game that falls on front offices to handle behind the scenes. There is a clear, almost stark contrast between images like Ray Lewis storming out of the tunnel and dancing like a modern gladiator ready for battle, and the execs in suits at press conferences who can quantify every single player’s worth with a price tag and assure us that the NFL “is also a business”.
And whether we realize it or not, we approach fandom the same way, with both the head and the heart. Our hearts make us cling to certain players and identify them as fan favorites for one reason or another, and that devotion makes us defend those players tooth and nail, long after their play has declined. Our heads often make us realize that while the game day experience at the stadium is unique, we can often get a more enjoyable (and always cheaper) version from our living room couch.
So what if we approached the draft the same way? There would be an ideal set of picks from either standpoint, to be sure. But which one is better for the team? The head or the heart? The Id or the Ego? The screaming, face painted die-hard or the calculating suited up exec? You decide. Here are my versions of the perfect 2017 NFL Draft for the New York Jets from the perspective of the head, and the perspective of the heart.
