New York Jets Fans React to the 2013 NFL Draft Class

The NFL draft is history, ladies and gentlemen. It was a big weekend for John Idzik, Rex Ryan and company, so it seemed prudent to come in with a new edition of “Tweet-Speak”. You know how it works, we give you the topic, you send us the tweets, and we put you into an article right here at the JET Press.

The topic is of course, the 2013 NFL draft class. I have spent a great deal of the weekend giving you my opinion, and Sean Durham will be along with his opinion on Monday. Now, it is time to hear from the fan base. What do you guys think of the draft class? Let’s see.

Nice to know that I am not the only one not in love with the choice of Geno Smith. I was wondering if I was alone on that ledge for a while. Geno is just not as NFL ready as he should be, so I can’t bring myself around on that pick either. Thanks Tyler.

 

Good thoughts, Hans. He definitely delivered competition in multiple spots on this roster. If competition improves the team as much as he thinks it will, the team will get better, and FAST.

Interesting assessment, taking into account the positions that weren’t addressed, but looking at a larger, two-year scale. I hadn’t thought about it like that yet. It’s hard enough to evaluate a draft right away, then add to it that the rebuild might take two years. It’s an interesting thought, thanks Derek.

 

Sometimes, it takes more than 140 characters to say what you have to say. Thanks for the thoughts Shawn. Good points about staying patient. I’m not sure if I am ready to call Idzik a genius yet, but that might come soon.

Nothing wrong there, Henry…thanks!

 

Nothing to argue with that.

Very true. I too, wish they had gotten a safety and/or a tight end. They did address it with the UDFAs, but we are taking the draft class in a vacuum. Thanks Jake.

 

Similar thoughts there, all fair. Thanks.

 

Thanks to everyone for chiming in. Generally, the response to the group is favorable. People aren’t thrilled about the lack of playmakers chosen, but other than that, it seems like John Idzik is being given the benefit of the doubt on his first draft.

Jets fans have spoken.

    One point that I hadn’t made in previous posts was that we couldn’t fill every hole with 8 picks, which I thought was clear. I think he did a great job and the value was top notch. I hadn’t realized about the playoff wins ’til Rex said it. I know he just rattled a couple of cages up north with that one. You go Rex! After letting Braylon go last year, I wonder if he’ll grab him this year. I really don’t understand why the front office is so cool towards him. I thought we shoulda kept him instead of Holmes a few years back.

      No argument on Braylon. I can’t think of anyone that doesn’t want him back. I love when Rex rattles cages with comments like that, makes me smile
