    He WILL a good player as he continues to learn to run routes, but playing with Wilson gives him a boost and allows him to do what he does best.

    DK still isn't impressing anyone with his short field route running though, if anything he should work out with TO and maximize his ability to box out.

    AJ Brown is a modern day Hines Ward but tougher if that's possible.

    Seems to contradict that theory. It seems if Metcalf is used more often on deep balls then he will reach his full potential like Mike Evans. Big receivers that win in contested situations donít really need to run a full route tree because they donít need too much separation to be successful.

    This WR class looks absolutely historic. Watch out for Jalen Reagor from TCU. Heís only 5í11Ē 195 lbs, but heís a physical freak of nature and has amazing ball skills. He reminds me of a more explosive OBJ, but perhaps not quite as much length.

    He had a down season this year, but he was excellent as a sophomore. I really believe that there will be a stud WR available in Round 2 because thereís no way all these guys get drafted in the 1st round. Iíd be tremendously disappointed if the Jets canít grab a WR with one of their 1st 3 picks.

    Yes as long as they get a WR with one of our 1st three picks I think we should get an impact player.. The more I look into these guys the deeper this draft class gets..

    A curl is the very first pattern everyone who catches a football learns.
    Run out, then come back to ball.
    Every WR in the NFL runs the curl.
    You can't make the NFL, you can't make the practice squad if you can't run a curl.
    It just helps to be physically imposing and a deep threat.

    I wish those stats showed the depth of throws to give a better understanding of the routes ran.
    There are short curls, intermediate curls and deep curls..
    Same for slants, outs, crosses, option routes and so forth.
    So just because it says go route, that doesn't mean the only deep routes.

    We will see what he is come next year once there is tape on him, if he can keep it up then he's in for a solid career.

    I'm more interested in players we can actually acquire than players we never had a realistic chance at.

    Joe D has already shown he has interest at WR, when he signed Demarius Thomas.
    The FA WR class is not a strong one, with Robbie potentially being among the best available.

    It seems like a good bet that WR will be an early pick.

    Iíd assume mostly intermediate on the curls. Go routes are always down the field so the tweet was just stating that Metcalf isnít running a bunch of deep routes every play. Heís doing damage on NFL-type plays when he was criticized for not running a full route tree in college. But yes, Iíd also prefer to talk about players we can actually acquire.

    it's interesting that you got center Nick Harris on both drafts with the 191st pick. Sounds good to me. I saw him go earlier in a couple of mock drafts. I think I'd also prefer the 2nd one, but it all really depends on free agency and its a long ways off.

    Simmons is a nasty player.
    Chaisson looked good except a few plays where he lost discipline

    And my lord, Stingley is going to be a top 5 pick next year. He's the most complete CB I've seen in college in a long, long time and he's a friggin freshmen

    During my review of East practice, I mentioned New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas is in attendance this week. The fact is this Ė Shrine practices are crawling with Jets scouts and front office people. Besides Douglas, Phil Savage is on hand, and I counted almost a dozen Jet scouts today.

    That should come as good news if youíre a fan of the green and white.

    Calvin Throckmorton/Oregon showing even more versatility. After lining up at guard yesterday he moved further inside and is playing center today.

    Thanks.


    It's nice to hear the scouts are out in abundance.

    Throckmorton on the inside is quite interesting for his versatility.

    What round? 3rd? 4rth? I know he's on the climb but I haven't seen anyone ranking him even as a top 10 OL.
