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.

Richardson plays the same position as Wilkerson, and Coples, who by the way, is now moving to OLB.

It's a dumb pick, not because of Richardson, but because it wasn't a position of need.

Either way I'm happy as Fuq.

Coples 6-6 285

 

Richardson 6-3 300

 

completely different types of players. Coples can play OLB. Richardson? no fuging way.
