SB Nation's Jets blog Gang Green Nation, however, is concerned about the inevitable comparisons to Revis. Head blogger John B remains skeptical about the new front office:
In a micro sense, Milliner is a really good prospect. He has a chance to become a really good cornerback. He is a good fit for the system, a very physical guy who will do well in press man coverage. He does have kind of a scary injury history, though, that includes five different surgeries. Players don't become less injury prone or less affected by past injuries as they age. He's a young guy to be so banged up.
In a macro sense, this just further confirms the idea that the Jets don't have any coherent vision for building this team. They traded the best cornerback in the league. This opened up such a hole that they felt compelled to use their most valuable asset to take a player that one day they hope might be 80% as good. If there's logic behind the way the Jets are operating, they are doing a heck of a job hiding it.
Jets fans in the comments are, shall we say, less than pleased with the pick:
The Jets still hold the 13th pick in the first round.
