Mr. Scot

Still makes me laugh...

The memory of hearing the words "With the 13th pick, the New York Jets select...Sheldon Richardson" :blink: :lol:

No lie. I really did 'laugh out loud', and I'm still laughing.

If ESPN ever does another video of Jets draft blunders, I hope that clip deserves to be on it.

It was obviously great for us...

 

But to say it was a Jets blunder is kind of ridiculous. I think Richardson is gonna be a great player.

Sheldon could turn out to be a really good football player and fill the role needed by the jets better than star would. They're two different players with two different skill sets.

Star was definitely the best pick for us, but its also possible Sheldon was the best pick for them.

I don't honestly care whether Richardson turns out good for the Jets. Granted, he might.

I care a lot that they didn't take Lotulelei :)

i didnt expect them to pick Star, but I sure as hell didnt expect them to get Richardson.  I was thinking Jarvis Jones or Eifert

The fact Sheldon Richardson wasn't on our radar tells you the scouting department had some concerns about him.

Richardson wasn't liked around here because he wasn't that great against the run, which was something we needed badly. Which is why Star is a fuging Godsend. But Richardson has a lot of talent, great motor, good kid, ect. I think it was a great pick for the Jets. Play him outside in their 3-4. He can definitely improve on the run, but he's a great player.

    • Yeah well, I watched all his highlight tapes on youtube and Fournette had better highlight tape because ________! There you go guys, I provided you with a template for your unabashedly outrageous McCaffrey hate!
    • I think it is safe to say the Panthers absolutely know what they are getting in CMC... at least more than youtube scouts.  Dave Gettleman "Well I watched all of his touches over two years. So what’s that, 700 touches he had between running and passing? And the returns. It was really funny, I was just talking to Mr. Richardson about it. There was a run he had and I don’t remember who it was against so don’t ask but he was running in the tackle box. He sees the backside linebacker. The front side linebacker is getting blocked. It’s a real tight space and he cuts his angle and actually bangs off that linebacker who is getting blocked and the backside linebacker couldn’t get there because of the angle he took. Then he steps on the gas like the road runner and see you later. That was pretty special."
