I have had this idea for a while that us members here at GGN make up a top 18 big board as a community. Mock drafts are fun and arguing about individual prospects is fun, but something that we rarely delve into and I think combines the interesting aspects of both, is ranking prospects in the order in which you would like to draft them for the Jets. I am not sure exactly how this will go, but I imagine there will be polls involved which should be fun for everbody as I don't think any online community takes more pleasure or pride in polling than the GGN community.
For now, I would like to hold nominations for prospects in the comments section. I figure, we nominate a certain number prospects for the first round of voting and then vote on each spot on the big board, adding more nominations as we go. I figure four or five prospects to vote on for the top spot to begin with, but I welcome any sugestions as well. Let me know if this is something that interests others and also nominate your favorite prospects below. I am not sure how we'll come to a consensus, but I figure that it will work itself out. After all, we are a very civilized and harmonious group.
Jets Community Big Board:
1 - Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
EDIT-1: I said I would edit this post at some time in the morning, so I figure I'll get this thing moving. I was a little surprised that there have been no votes for any of the quarterbacks considering the Jets' situation, but Clowney and Watkins appear to be the only common number 1 choices amongst posters so they will be the only two options for this round. I saw a couple of votes for other prospects receive single nominations but with no seconds. And since these two are such overwhelming favorites I made a decision.
Below you can vote for your preference for the number 1 spot on our community big board. After you vote, post any further nominations for the number 2 spot. I figure that any losers of one round (either Clowney or Watkins in this case) will automatically move on to the next round).
EDIT-2: Clowney came out as the clear favorite for the number 1 spot. You can vote now for the number 2 spot on our community big board.
