Mayock has a terrible record for predicting star players. He was all over Knowshon Moreno a few years back, and the guy will be lucky if he keeps his job this year.
A REAL SCOUT FROM THE STEELERS SAID HE THOUGHT HE WOULD BE THE BEST PASS RUSHER OUT OF THIS CLASS.
I imagine he's going to lose his job too? Oh wait, no he's not because he's been there over a decade.
If you had gotten Jones instead of Branch you'd be talking up Jones. It's what you do.

Seriously though, I wasn't predicting Pro Bowls for Branch in the near future. I just said I thought he would be the first rookie to settle in. I just can't see where the hype for Jones comes from. He doesn't look great on film, and he didn't accomplish much in college.

I can feel you on that. I wasn't a huge fan myself but I heard too many real football types that really like him. And I'm just a guy with internet access.
Mercilus I see hasn't been really said?
NormSizedMidget;26661964]I'll sig bet you that Tim Jennings has 3 or less INTs. In fact I personally believe he will only have 2 and over a 90 QB rating against
I think Nick Perry is being severely underrated here. Granted, I think he would be better off being used like Calais Campbell; but he has 4 games a season against teams that start Jeff Backus and J'Marcus Webb at LT. Those should be automatic multi-sack games.
As a Jets fan, I made this thread because I am very curious to see how all these guys turn out. We basically had our choice among many of these players outside of Fletcher Cox and Bruce Irvin and the FO went with Coples. I think they viewed it as when all these players are at their best, Coples best is better than the rest. Whether that is true or not is debatable, but I believe Rex Ryan's ego believes he can get the best out of Coples and as a fan I can only hope so or we going to look back on this draft and look at a couple of other players and say I can't believe we passed on that.
Coples also fit the Jets defensive scheme best, as a 3-4 end who has the requisite size to hold his ground, and the athleticism to provide some quarterback pressure as well. He isn't likely to put up gaudy stats in that position, but I think he could become one of the best 3-4 ends in the league in time. I don't know if it was a case of him being "better" than the rest so much as better suited for the role they had in mind. You could say the same about a few of the others as well. Not surprisingly, teams gave higher grades to players who better fit their own system.
