It is slightly concerning, but personally I want the Jets to swing for the fences, I am tired of the "twoway hard working" players with every single pick, too many of those, especially those in later rounds do not pan out, and if they do you are looking at a 4th liner/13th forward at best. Time for some high end skill like a Dano, IMO.
I agree with you there. I guess we'll have to wait and see. I wonder if or when they'll either select a Euro/Russian or a player below 6 feet tall. Neither has happened as of yet and I'd hate to think that trend continues. Our current system is filled with bottom 6 players and bottom pairing d-men (baring significant development).
