Today is the start of a new week and a new month. It is a big month at that. April is the month of the NFL Draft. We are a few weeks away from the Jets attempting to stock their roster with young talent. The team currently owns the third overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Jets lack a second round pick after their trade last year with the Colts to move up for Sam Darnold, but they own an extra third round pick due to last year’s Teddy Bridgewater trade.
On today’s podcast we discuss the NFL Draft. Namely we talk about the role a given player’s position should play into a team’s decision-making. I think people frequently only advocate for their team picking players at weak spots, but I argue that more should go into it than that. I talk about three other aspects that I believe should matter, breaking a tie between two prospects, looking at the strength of a class, and building matchup problems for opponents.
Thanks for listening.
