Rex Ryan wanted Jets to draft Travis Kelce, Tyranny Mathieu in 2013

The Chiefs have two of the best players in the NFL in Travis Kelce and Tyranny Mathieu. Kelce is arguably the most well-ventilated tight decline in all of football, though Mathieu has developed into an All-Pro safety.

In an choice universe, those two are playing for the Jets right now.

Rex Ryan was tall regarding Kelce and Mathieu entering the 2013 NFL draft  so high that he pleaded following with-general manager John Idzik to pick them, according to ESPNs Rich Cimino. Idzik opted not to hear to Ryan, on the other hand forming a draft class that made little to no sure impact regarding the doling out.

Idzik chosen Dee Milliner and Sheldon Richardson as soon as his two first-round picks. Milliner battled injuries and never came near to live thing the lockdown cornerback he was supposed to become. Richardson produced behind the Jets, but was plagued by off-the-showground troubles. Picking Geno Smith in the second round amounted to against nothing and Idziks late-circular choose didn’t last long in the league.

Only Brian Winters  chosen in the third round once the 72nd overall pick  developed into a fragment the Jets kept taking into account hint to progressive than his rookie concurrence.

Kelce was chosen in the second round by the Chiefs, though the Cardinals drafted Mathieu in the third round. Both were easy to use considering the Jets picked in the second round. Hindsight is always 20/20  especially following it comes to drafting  but Idzik dropped the ball in a deafening mannerism.

New York is yet irritating to rebound from its poor drafting deadened Idzik. Mike Maclagan wasn’t any bigger than his predecessor and at the forefront indications are that Joe Douglas has a clue, but his 2020 class hasn’t panned out too subsequent to ease. At the certainly least, Douglas utilizes a collaborative process once it comes to drafting. If Robert Saleh has input upon a performer, Douglas will listen and find his head coach’s advice.

Idzik didn’t afford Ryan that luxury and it cost the Jets two All-Pros.
