Panthers want Star

Averaging almost 30 ppg in wins, offense is not an issue, especially with Cam under center. Star would be the best thing to happen this draft.

How many points did we average in our 9 losses? Fwiw, we were in the bottom half of the leage in points scored last year, despite getting to play New Orleans twice.

I am not saying that we should necessarily pick a receiver and fwiw, I don't really like any of the potential picks at receiver. But getting a number 1 receiver is something we are going to have to address either thru the draft or free agency this year or next, because Steve Smith isn't getting any younger.

Feel for Austin. He is not a good fit for the Jets. He also has no one to get him the ball.

Austin is perfect for down the field attacking offense... Totally not what Jets run. No matter how many talented WR they get for their shitty QB... He'll still be a shitty QB.

Wouldn't be a great shock.

That said, a day before the draft, ya gotta keep the salt shaker handy.

Offense is not an issue because we put up good numbers in some of the games???

We faced two really god defensive fronts (Denver and NY) and guess what, they killed us. This does not mean we have to spend the first rounder on offense, but lets not kid ourselves and pretend that we don´t have holes on both sides of the ball.

Austin is NOT perfect for a down the field attacking offense.

He made his living in college on WR screens and bubble screens. That is why his yards per catch is very low at 11 ypc.

He is an underneath slot WR. I just do not see him as a legit #1 WR on the outside.

Would anyone be upset with a trade up ? Say, Jets' 9 for Star.

I would love to trade up as long as we keep out second rounder id be fine to go DT then WR

the bigger issue in the Denver and NY games were the fact that the OLine could not protect Cam...nor open holes.

So, if you want to improve the offense.....a pick at OT or OG would be more beneficial than a slot WR.

With only five picks in the entire draft, trading up is not a realistic scenario.

To MH:

Yes, u r right. He's Wes Welker type of player. New England runs vertical down the field attacking offense that causes many single and zone coverages on Welker. That's what I meant. In vertical attacks many times safeties will play deep and that's when good slot WR will eat you up. Jets don't run the same offense, means safeties will be near the box. Austin will not be as productive.

This is the ONLY scenario where I'd be ok with trading up, but only a few spots.
