personally, i am a little suprised by this year's draft, not to say i hate it. im just intrested by the picks is all, espcially with Stephen Hill out of georgia tech. however, these picks are very good. people are going to say we should have drafted a rt or safety in the first, 2nd, or third. however, the picks we have are very good and i will explain why.
Quintin Coples(DE/DT) when he is motivated, he is one of the best pass rushers out there. he has Julius Peppers
talent, but there have been questions about his motivation and work ethic. however, Rex Ryan can keep him motivated. Rex is still one of the best defensive coaches in the league, and i know he will find a way to keep Coples motivated and keep him working hard. Melvin Ingram was there at number 16, but im glad we didn't take him. i would have been fine with either Ingram or Coples, but i feel Coples has more raw talent and potential. Ingram has red flags. He has short arms, and is undersized at 6 foot 1 inch. we will see who is better, but for now, im glad we took Coples.
Stephen Hill(WR) Im a little suprised by this pick. Honestly, i would have liked another, more proven reciever. however, Stephen Hill has a lot of raw talent, and potential. He will be raw, but this is what Sanchez needs. A young reciever who he can develop with. Also, he will be learning from Santonio Holmes
, who is a very good reciever. I also believe we will bring in Braylon Edwards
to take pressure of Hill. This could be a very good pick for us.
Demario Davis(LB) Once again, little suprised by the pick, but i like it. Face it, this is a weak safety class. there are a lot of question marks around the safeties in this class, and the only real one that could have started for us was mark barron, and he was taken #7. we were not going to trade up for him. so instead of drafting a safety early and having him not pan out for us, draft pass rush specialists to keep tom brady on his heels on all timesa. instead of fosusing on one weak section, beef up another crucial one. our strong pass ruch will take pressure of the secondary, and we will need that. also, Davis had great speed and can drop back in coverage against running backs and tight ends. yes, he needs work on his coverage skills, but he can still be good. we needed to get younger at the linebacker position anyway.
