First off the 13th pick this year is probably equal to the 23rd pick next year. Second off, if Lamar goes to the Pats and Tua/Lamar/Josh Allen stay healthy.....the Jets could be the last place team in that division and we could be staring at a top 10 pick like Seattle did with Russell Wilson.
I'm with you. They also play the Chiefs, Chargers, Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants. There's some layups on their schedule too but that might be a six win team.
That is exactly what I am saying. Jets have some nice pieces and with Rodgers they could EASILY make the playoffs.....but two of the teams in their division also have nice pieces and good QBs. Tua has injury concerns, but IF he can stay healthy that team will be in the postseason. If Allen stays healthy they will be in the postseason. And IF the Ravens sign Lamar that is another potential playoff team.
A lot of IFs, but even if some of those things don't happen and the Jets make the playoffs and get pick 24 or something, next year's draft is better than this year so that could be an equal player and it's worth the gamble. Jets start off losing to Bills, Fins, KC and it becomes a snowball effect. In this situation, if Love stinks we might have two of the top picks in a stacked draft.
