    Quinnen was just 19/20 years old when drafted and is just 24 now. The guy everyone wanted instead is Josh Allen (DE) and truthfully Q is better.

    He’s underperformed to his draft position but has proven he’s round 1 talent.

    He’s been very much like Leonard Williams, not all world but still a very good player + I think Q has more upside.

    Pff weighs in


    DI QUINNEN WILLIAMS, NEW YORK JETS
    No. 3 overall pick

    Williams didn't get off to the blazing fast start that many anticipated after a remarkable final college season at Alabama, but he has shown plenty of flashes through three seasons. The Jets should remain optimistic that he can become one of the best players at his position in due time, particularly as an interior pass-rusher.

    Over the last two seasons, Williams' 73 quarterback pressures are a top-20 mark among interior defenders, and his 77.1 pass-rush grade ranks 15th. Now entering his second season under head coach Robert Saleh with more talent along the defensive line around him — such as edge defenders Carl Lawson and rookie Jermaine Johnson II — Williams could have a breakout campaign in his fourth season.

    Free-agent addition cornerback D.J. Reed and 2022 fourth overall pick cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner also figure to keep the ball in opposing quarterbacks' hands longer after the snap, which could help Williams get home more frequently.

    All of that said, this deal may not come until after the 2022 season, which gives Williams a great opportunity to boost his value as much as possible before cashing in.

    Contract projection: Five years, $102.5 million ($20.5 million per year), $65 million total guaranteed

    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Isn’t JFM-who we just paid btw- technically ideally playing in his spot?

    Trade Q, and tell him not to forget his gun when he catches his flight

    I like PFF, I really do.

    But that “Top X in QB hits, so like next year he’ll turn all of them into sacks” line we’ve heard too many times about too many morons. See Leonard Williams, Q Couples etc

    People don’t usually age 4-5 years over the course of 3 calendar years.

    No, Q is bigger and can play on the inside on running downs or passing downs. JFM is a pass rushing DT . he won’t be on the field as DT rushing downs.

    Jet years are significantly longer years

    Leonard Williams forgot about that comparison. Does anyone else think DT's should not be taken this high going forward? Sure they are impactful if you get the right one (Donald), but they are a bit devalued ala RB's going this early IMO.

    This is a fair assessment.I agree that Q has more upside as well.

    Different system these guys werw drafted for. That said, I’m 10000% with you that 3-4 end shouldn’t ever be a priority pick for us going fwd

    Without question. It's just very difficult to rush the passer consistently from the inside, there aren't enough guys who can do it to spend high picks looking for them. It doesn't even matter how good the prospect is at stuffing the run - that's just not an important enough thing to warrant a high pick even if he's great at it.
