Realistic trades. I'm not digging the Austin pick, but if that's the direction we go I'll clamber onto the bandwagon and hope for the best. Everything else seems realistic, except I'm not sure where this hype for DJ Hayden has come from. Admittedly I don't know much about him, haven't watched any videos or anything. I've just seen him mentioned around here a few times all of a sudden the past few days. Dunno where this has come from. There's always at least one late riser who gets taken way above expectations from even as little as a week before the draft, so it's just as likely to be him as anyone else.

I just watched the Hayden videos from the thread here. I have to say, his reaction time and change of direction are borderline elite. Looks like he could be a real stud. I do have one complaint though, when he played press (most noticeable in the vs. UCLA video) he is about as unphysical as possible. He wouldn't even put a hand on the guy. He's gotta learn to jam when playing press like that. Other than that, looked like a real sure tackler and quick. That reaction time and change of direction are probably the two most important physical qualities on a CB too.

However, I'm always hesitant on these late draft-season risers. Looks like he could be good though.

Updated for the Revis trade and changed a couple late picks.

I don't exactly see the Star pick for the Jets. I've seen others talk about it, but their D-line is pretty good and young. If anything on defense I'd think they'd be going after pass rushers, Safeties or maybe a Revis replacement.

I hope you're right as I'd love for Star to fall to us, but he's great value there and the Jets did release their starting nose tackle earlier in the offseason. They have Kendrick Ellis, though, so I suppose it depends on how comfortable they are with him.

I just think the #1 most important piece of any defense, let alone a 3-4, are the pass rushers. The loss of Revis locking down receivers makes their pass rush even more important. The thing their defense lacks the most are....pass rushers. They don't really have any. As much as I love Star, if our defense had no pass rushers, AND we just lost the guy making coverage sacks more possible, I'd have to pass on him for the best pass rushers available. I think they take Mingo and Austin or Patterson (their offense SUCKS). If not Mingo, then J. Jones, Ansah or someone else to rush the passer.

Hell, they could even take both Mingo AND Jones and I wouldn't look down on the picks.
