Sheldon Richardson First DT off board

Alright so I'm sure many of you are aware that just about every mock draft in the country had us taking this kid out of Mizzou at 14, after both Star and Floyd went. Instead this guy goes ONE pick ahead of us at 13.

Like many of you I felt mocking the Panthers to take Richardson was the lazy way out. Panthers need a DT and he's the best one available at that pick so you take him - sort of makes sense for a regularly underachieving team.

Instead most of us are thinking he's a huge downgrade from Floyd or Star but he's taken a pick before us.

Do you think the Jets knew we wanted him because he was actually the best DT in the draft, because we wanted him, or because the Jets are organizationally defunct and it was a dumb pick?

And yes they are defunct. They have an incredibly long history in the NFL and outside of Joe Namath and his one lucky superbowl they have literally nothing to brag about. No other superbowls and certainly no other household historical names.

The Jets were retarded once again. Don't know what they were thinking, but if they were trying to pull a fast one on us, it was a pretty damn poor attempt.

All I know is, I was thrilled for Gettleman to have his pick for Star or Floyd. Richardson just didn't appeal to me.

Richardson is known combo of size athleticism. Someone may want that. For most fans it was about fit. Star was the best fit.

I think the Jets are organizationally defunct and it was a dumb pick. Potentially the two best players on their defense are Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, both 3-4 DEs. Where is Sheldon Richardson going to play for them? 3-4 DE. Literally three straight first round picks on 3-4 DE. I know a lot of their targets were somewhat suprisingly gone before they had any chance, but they have to be better prepared than that. Regardless of whether they play a 3-4 or 4-3, who's supposed to be the outside rush guy?

We got the guy I wanted. Back mid-season when it looked like we were destined for a top 5 pick, I wanted Star. In a way, I was a little butthurt when we went on a winning spurt at the end of the season once we were out of contention because I thought it was taking us out of the running to land him. To enjoy winning some games and still get the guy I wanted all along at #14 is fuging awesome!
