    I think that’s just your Google search results.

    Unrelated completely to the player drafted but every clip I see of the NYJ front office, coaching staff in action really makes me convinved they're a bunch of idiots. They can't piece together a couple of thoughts in a coherent verbal delivery. At first I wondered if it was just hard knocks but everything appears that this is a bunch of never-have-beens hanging out and talking locker room bravado at the VFW after a few too many cheap draft beers.

    What happens when other teams put a quick nickel corner on him in man to man?

    Im talking a veteran NFL nickel back, not some guy he was used to playing against at Western/Eastern? Kentucky

    always a risk taking a guy from a smaller school playing against weaker competition, so we’ll have to see. I thought I read somewhere that he looked good at the senior bowl against better competition, so we’ll see.

    I watched some more of him yesterday and he wasn’t really asked to do much more than what his strength is, which is just taking the ball underneath and running.

    I don’t think he’s incapable of rounding his game out, but he really doesn’t have any route running ability at this time. He just wasn’t asked to beat secondaries that way.

    So the concern is - what if he doesn’t adapt? I mean it works fine for Deebo because the guy rounds out his slants and posts and what not but he’s just that much of a physical mismatch that it’s fine.

    I don’t really see Corley comparable to Deebo either at least in body type. Deebo has legs the size of Maurice Jones-Drew which is why he plows through so many defensive backs.

    Yeah we’ll see…I only know the highlights but from that, and watching the OSU game film that was posted earlier in this thread (Thank you!), I agree he’s not really running routes…just finding space underneath and making things happen, which is fine. Between Breece and GW and MW and Conklin I think we can put pressure on a D and let this kid run around LBs and over DBs…hope it works!

    Considering the team’s penchant for (regardless of OC) throwing behind the sticks, especially when we need a 1st down, picking a Deebo style player is a good move.

    Excellent point! How many years have we been talking about the Jets' penchant for throwing the ball 3-5 yards short of the sticks? It's driven us all crazy. At least now, if/when they do that, there's an actual chance that we can get the 1st down. Of course, now that they have a WR who actually excels at YAC, they'll probably throw it past the sticks or won't use him in the way that made him successful. Hackett will find a way to screw it up.

    Haha yeah with our luck he’ll be made into our deep threat. “Opponents will never see it coming!”

    Did Corley return kicks at all in college?

    Seems like that would be a good fit with the rule changes.
    Even Deebo was returning kicks all late last season, and doing a damn good job at it from what I saw.

    While I do like the player, I really don't get why we had to trade up in the third round to get him. He seems like more of a consolation pick than a guy you covet and trade up for.

    “His style is true” according to Bob Saleh

    So we got that going for us, whatever that means

    Audible to run directly at the quick nickel and bulldoze him.

    yeah, okay, we will see how that works out. I didn't know Corley was Mike Alstott :)
