Now that the 2012 Draft has come and gone and we have rejoiced or cried over who the Jets have selected and passed up, I am left to ponder the question of what could have been. How many players there were on the board during our selection that I would rather have taken instead of the choice we made. Who I will watch over the next season in another teams uniform and watch excel, compared to who will bust in a Jets uniform, or who I am afraid might bust in a Jets uniform but will turn out to be a star, and instead watch someone I thought might be a star on another team turn out to be a bust and say... whew glad they didn't listen to me on that pick!
It certainly is all "spilled milk" now and "water under the bridge" but I do wonder are there any players you are glued to that didn't make the team? Players that you really in your heart of hearts wished would be on the roster come day 1 that instead will be vying for a spot with one of the other 31 teams and will you be rooting for them hoping that some day in the future maybe they will wear green & white? Or how about those undrafted guys who you're really pulling for to become the next Tom Brady... such as myself?
I was deeply in the corner of Kellen Moore, QB from Boise State. I wanted him to replace McElroy with a passion. I was flabergasted that he went undrafted but am pleased as punch that he's with Detroit. I think he may get a fair shot on a team like the Lions. I look forward to following his, hopefully successful career as it starts in 2012 even in very limited capacity and hope that he proves all the naysayers wrong. I think he could have been the biggest steal of the 2012 draft as an undrafted rookie. Let alone if we had grabbed him in the 7th.
But that's my pick. If you had 1. Only 1 guy who you truly in your heart of hearts just had to have on the Jets roster this year, impact or none impact player, that we could have realistically could have had, who would it have been and why? Sentimental? Alumn? Because you dont like our picks? I mean look how happy Hill was! That alone makes me happy he's here lol. Share your story.. i'm curious to read it. Who is your Jet who got away...
