Well, this will definitely make Joe Douglas think, doesn’t it?
For many reasons, you may not consider DeVonta Smith as the second pick in the draft. The traditional view is that you would not choose such a high wide receiver. The traditional view is that if you choose a higher level, it is better to take the cornerstone position-quarterback, stormtrooper, left tackle-make sure not to choose a higher level again.
The traditional view is that if you can select a large number of assets through trading, please call and trade.
However, it’s interesting: regular wisdom doesn’t explain what Smith did we saw on Monday night, when he made 12 catches of Ohio State Buckeyes in the first half for 21
Conventional wisdom cannot explain Smith’s running with Ohio State to some extent. Maybe they don’t have a story about the winner of Heisman in the Columbus assignment last week.
Maybe Smith is like that.
If you have watched Smith this year, if you have seen him score 20 touchdowns (34 in the past two years), if you have seen him always manage to play, play defense, and let the coach hold his breath Whenever the kick-off or the punt moves in his direction, you will know how good he is.
Heisman voters know that even in a year when Trevor Lawrence was the young blond of the sport, he also won a huge trophy and entered a season worthy of awards . And it’s not particularly close. Smith’s first place vote was twice that of Lawrence, and he won by 1856-1187.
So what should Douglas do?
For many years, the 2-14 season has been a shortcut to the No. 1 pick. But the Jaguars were totally uncooperative, leading 1-15, so they would draft Lawrence. If you choose Lawrence VS Smith, you have no choice: you have chosen the offspring quarterback.
Number 2 is another animal. For ten days, the earth seems to have turned to Columbus, thanks to the permanent match between Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Clemson, in which he completely Beyond Lawrence (Lawrence). There is a feeling that people with that feeling may be talking about this topic, and Fields was not overwhelming with Alabama’s performance on Monday night. He may still be an outstanding professional player. But ranked second?
BYU’s Zach Wilson is another quarterback worth mentioning. Is he a rookie worth joining in second place? Penei Sewell of Oregon can team up with Mekhi Becton for a powerful pair of tackles (although the presence of Becton means Sewell may make the right tackles, while the traditional Views oppose this position in second place). There are no marginal blankers who change the franchise.
So, is it really going to linger outside the envelope, just picking the best football player in second place, or at least picking out the best player of Trevor Lawrence without a name? Because based on his career, based on the situation of the season, and based on the epic first half (representing his night work after taking off his finger on the first goal of the second half), it seems that this must be DeVonta Smith .
do you have anything else?
The third place after the Jets is the Miami Dolphins, who owns Houston’s first-round pick. They may want to reunite Smith with his college quarterback Tua Tagavailoa, which is not unbelievable.Then, the Jets will be particularly happy face For the foreseeable future, Smith twice a year.
Look, for Douglas, this is not easy. He was open to criticisms made by Dave Gettleman three years ago when he was second overall by Saquon Barkley. The traditional view is: in the draft, usually In the first round, you will find yourself running very low, which is usually the same. As a star wars.
But in that situation, the idea is that the Giants have lost the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to choose a quarterback. They chose to wait a year to meet this demand because no candidate can satisfy them (they may be correct for Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen, but not for Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson).
If there is a quarterback who can capture Douglas’s imagination and he is 100% sure, that’s one thing. If a team offers a lot of draft picks, it needs to be considered.
But if it is April 29, the Jets are considering who is the best player on the board? We will see him on Monday evening. He is wearing a red size 6. He wears the old number of Mark Sanchez (Mark Sanchez) in green, which may look good.
