To begin with, I never said it was some dire need of a position group, so quit deflecting or trying to put words in my mouth. You're assuming an awful lot. I still believe in Becton, but I'm not willing to risk Zach's health and not developing on Becton. He could show up out of shape or even if he shows up lighter and in shape, he could still struggle and not play well. Fant's year at LT could have been a career year, and he could struggle this year. The Jets may not be able to come to terms with him on an extension. He may want more than they think he's worth. There are a number of reasons why drafting Ekwonu is a valid choice, and could be the RIGHT choice for the Jets. One can look at it this way...if JD drafts Ekwonu instead of Hamilton and Becton and Fant play well, JD can take some criticism for drafting an OG at #4 (but I don't know how many people criticized the Colts or still are for taking Nelson at #5) and/or having too many top level OTs. Conversely, if he takes Hamilton and then Becton shows up out of shape and/or doesn't play well, or if Fant struggles, and as a result Zach gets seriously hurt, or is constantly running for his life and doesn't show the progress that people think he needs to, then JD will look like a total idiot for not taking Ekwonu. I've said that I could understand why you would want Hamilton, and why JD may draft him. If so, I'll hope for the best. I'm not one of those posters/Jets fans who will want to go after JD with torches and pitchforks. This discussion and thread have clarified my thinking on this, and I'm now solidly leaning towards taking Ekwonu if KT isn't there or maybe even if he is if the negative rumors about KT are true.
