Well its totally awesome that we just signed Hartwig and he takes care of our Center issue, so with Oline being what we were going to draft first where do we go now? What position? and who?

This is just my opinion but, just imagine for a second if we had signed Kris Jenkins and switched to a 4-3. Keisel and Smith on the ends, Big Snack and Jenkins in the middle. LOLB Woodley, MLB Farrior, ROLB Timmons (There are options for MLB and ROLB). First of all, NO ONE would run on us, and maybe we could get a little more pressure on the QB. There's obviously more to it than that but...,

Thoughts?

Maybe Harrison in the middle. Farriors isn't getting any younger and its hard to keep a current pro bowler out of the starting rotation.

We signed Hartwig?

nvm i saw it on the bottom line by john clayton. very nice pickup. we signed him for 2 years. i still hope we take a lineman though. we need depth there.

i wouldnt be surprised if we did, and if we didn't if albert is there go for it he has rare size for a guard. but i wouldnt mind a receiver. hopefully malcom kelly, i would settle for james hardy also

I like the idea that we can take the best player available (unless it's a TE or QB).

I agree because we are okay at preaty much every position now, so why not

Well, it wouldn't kill us to find a D-Lineman (age issues, especially LE), "home grown" LB depth (it's tradition afterall) and we may soon be in the market for a DB or two depending on what happens with McFadden (contract) and Townsend (age). Also, FS: We don't know what will happen with Ryan Clark and A. Smith didn't prove anything but value on special teams (so far). A healthy Ryan Clark would be HUGE! At least someone to push humble-pie eatin' Anthony Smith.

First three players drafted may still be O-line...D-back...D-line.

Agree, I don't see how signing a FA center changes anything in the 1st. The team was not looking at center in the 1st obviously, this just means maybe we draft only one O-lineman. and I still think it's in the 1st.

I think we're all just glad that the team was not satisfied going into this season with just Mahan and Stapleton competing at center.

Clark is still a question mark with his spleen and Smith hasn't shown a lot of consistancy.

I could be wrong BF, but I think the Jets are in a panic mode.

I think that they just don't have a number one runner in New York. Thomas Jones is getting up there in years and hs production has fell(possibly from a young Jet o-line) and Washington is no starting RB.

Well all of the backs besides i guess washington could start on atleast on other team, thats just a waste of money on their part.
