Jets, can I have this dance

I think it's highly probable the Saints trade up with the Jets to the 6 spot to get Sedrick Ellis, since Dorsey is mostly likely sianara by then. The Jets desperately need a WR but taking one at 6 would be a pretty big reach. The Saints desperatly need a DT but know Ellis will be gone by the time 10 comes around.
It makes a lot of sense to me unless we trade with the Jets for D. Robinson before the draft.

I wish, but rarely in the NFL do things work out in the most logical way and/or the way the fans have planned it out, no matter how much we'd like to see it or how much sense it makes.

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

Jonathan Sullivan

With the signing of McGray, moving Grant inside to tackle on passing downs makes taking a DT in later rounds. So a top flight LB is needed more now than a DT

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

10 to 6? 300 pts? thats pick 60 in value of the 2nd round. I do not see it working unless we redo the Vilma trade. Jets do not have a third to even make the trade work. There is always Stinch from us and Roberston and his knee from them to work with. Stinch would be about a fourth round value, they need a RT, maybe. 70pts and that would mean giving up our third rounder also. I am not to crazy about that one.
Any one got another way of looking at this one?

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

To move up to 6, we would have to part with a 2nd round pick. So would you rather walk away from day 1 of the draft with:

a) Sedrick Ellis

or

b) Keith Rivers and Brandon Flowers

Pick 41 is worth 490 points and I have to ask were the jets are coming up with the 190 points? pick 82 in the 3rd. Which they do not have. They could give us back our fourth and theres at 99 also. 178pts. then we could be big dogs on day 2. you know this may not be that bad.

We would be looking at

1- Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC, 6005, 309, 5.23
3- Justin King, CB, Penn St., 5107, 192, 4.31
4- Shawn Crable, OLB, Michigan, 6049, 245, 4.64
and another 4th to go.
