    I agree. This was leaked for a reason. The Jets do not need to trade up for McFadden. The Raiders could take him, but I tend to believe Adam Schfter on this one that they won't take him. That's the only team possible that could take McFadden in front of the Jets.

    I love how everyone just takes random guesses about everything involved in the draft. As long as you take all the reports with a grain of salt this one of the funniest times of the year.

    I think the Raiders are a lock to take McFadden so if The Jest want him they'll have to trade up. Personally I think they should, they have zero threats on offense. Nothing. They're spent money on FA on defense this offseason, two #1s on defense last season. They need a threat and a personality on offense.

    If the Jets are trading up it's for the QB. Who trades up in the top 5 for a rb?

    This is just Tannenbaum using Cimini and Florio picking up the baton, the same dynamic that occurred in the early days of "Videogate".

    I hear the Jets are trying to move up to get Ryan McLongston...or something like that.

    Edit: try saying that with your best Braveheart accent. Adds to the experience.

    I don't think McFadden gets drafted in the top 8 (unless there's a trade for him, which is doubtful). The Jets won't draft him. I really don't see the Raiders drafting him.

    There is no way the Jets pass on McFadden. Who else are they going to pick? McFadden makes all the sense in the world to them.

    I think they take a QB before they pick McFadden.

    Yep. Or an OLB. Or possibly a DL.

    I would have to agree. An audience full of Jet fans just waiting to set the place on fire after a perceived bad pick. McFadden, likely the top player on their board, falls to them at 6. The sound of "Thomas Jones, loss of 2" still ringing in their ears. Their heads filled with visions of Adrian Peterson Part II. A loaded firearm sitting next to an empty 6-pack and a $4000 bill for season tickets.

    If I'm sitting at the Jets table at Radio City Music Hall and someone on the phone says "Derrick Harvey"...I'm taking a loooooooooooong bathroom break.

    I would think that too, except they may not have a chance, with Allen being traded by the chiefs, both Gholston and Long may be off the board by their pick. I guess this would depend on what the Falcons decides to do.
