4. If Braylon Edwards returns at a low cost, Jets are set at WR.

  • At an affordable rate Braylon is worth the risk. You know what you’re getting. We all saw what he brought to the table when he signed late last season. The leadership is there. The effort is there. His frame is there. And the chemistry is there.
  • If Braylon is under contract for 2013, the WR depth chart will look like this:
  1. Santonio Holmes
  2. Braylon Edwards
  3. Jeremy Kerley (slot)
  4. Stephen Hill
  5. Clyde Gates
  6. Jordan White (slot)

I’m down with that! Are you not?

5. Jets should make calls to Eric Mangini and/or Chad Pennington

  • Similar to how the Jets brought Bill Pollian, Tom Moore, and others in to Florham Park to give their take on the Jets, Eric and Chad could have the same effect.
  • Eric Mangini failed as a head coach, not because of his level of intelligence, but because oh his inability to relate to his players. So would he be interested in a front office/head of scouting type of role with the Jets? It can’t hurt to “explore the possibility”, or look into it. It’s not urgent, whatsoever, but I feel that he could help in some capacity.
  • Most Jet fans were aware of Chad Pennington’s smarts, as the Jets QB back in ’06. He has a knack for the game, and a knowledgeable one. A lot of fans would like to see him become the Jets QB Coach one day, but at the very least, he could (or should) have an impact on the QB’s in training camp. One thing is for sure… He loves the game of football. I wouldn’t be shocked if he’s spotted in Cortland, NY this summer.

6. If Geno Smith is available at #9, Jets should pull the trigger.

  • In my opinion, Geno Smith is far above any QB in this year’s draft class. He has the ability to take off and run, but is primarily a pocket passer. That’s the ideal situation to have at QB, in my book, and it works for both parties—The Jets get Sanchez some serious competition and the Jets get, at the very least, one franchise QB. If Sanchez pulls a miracle of a turnaround in his career, the Jets would be in a “Vick/Kolb or Smith/Kaepernick” type of situation, giving them a good problem.
  •  The Jets do have an abundance of pressing needs, and I understand that. But the most urgent (consensus of the fan base) seems to be a pass rusher/OLB. However, this is a position that is very deep in this year’s draft. Like I said before, if Dion Jordan is the guy, I’ll be one happy fan. But if Geno is there at #9, I really hope the Jets pull the trigger.

** I realize this is a topic where Jet Nation is very divided over, so I understand if you disagree. With that being said, I know @hashtagfrankie is with me!
