  1. Way to early mock just for fun

    I wanted to be conservative and if anything over pay guys as opposed to underpaying everyone and making this unrealistic. It was tough for me to pass on Jeudy, but being able to trade down and still get a top notch OT prospect, and get another swing at the plate in a deep second round made me go that way. I am growing more confident that Bell will be offloaded. If we get a 3rd out of him I'll be ecstatic, if we get a 4th I'll still be pretty excited. He just seems pretty done to me.
  2. Way to early mock just for fun

    I have us trading Bell. I think there is a chance with this offseason that 4/5 spots on our OL are upgraded in 1 off season. We add a good CB to our D. You can not love some of the moves i made that is understandable, but i think this would be a clearly better offense, and our D would have more talent on it as well. I was tempted by Jeudy but looking back at recent drafts, many of the top notch WR's to come out of those drafts were in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. If the only thing we do in this entire off season is fix our line to protect Sam more, and to provide us even a league average running attack I am a happy guy, everything else is just gravy.
  3. Way to early mock just for fun

    This is clearly way to early, but this is how i start to get to know the players and the lay of the land. I really feel like the clear objective of this offseason has to be to help Sam as much as possible. It might piss off Gregg to not get many new toys, but he damned himself by proving how good of a job he can do with scraps. Getting CJ back will also basically be a new FA. I will only do an abbreviated free agency since a ton of these guys will be resigned, or tagged. Cuts: Trumaine: I honestly wouldn't care if this move saved any money I would kick this bum to the curb regardless, luckly the power of magic macc and his genius contracts has us saving a whopping 3 mill against a dead cap number of 12 mill going into year 3.... hurray Avery Williamson: I really like the guy but it just doesn't make sense to keep him. He is a run stuffing ILBer returning to a team that was already elite at stopping the run. Also we would be paying 25.5 mill to our middle LBers next year which is really the easiest to fill position on the defense. That is like paying a washed up RB 12.5 mill next year..... oh wait...... damn. This move saves us 6.5 mill Quincy Enunwa: I just don't think he can play football anymore without messing up his neck. I liked the way he played but this was another Macc special. We only save 2.4 mill but it is worth it. Brian Winters: It is time to rip this band aid off and throw it away finally. He has been serviceable at best when healthy and he is less and less healthy. Going to be 29 before next season, and it saves is 7.2 mill. We need guys who can get a push, he doesn't Daryl Roberts: Another brilliant Macc move. Lets give an older rubbish CB who never really started significant money. He threw in a twist here though and didn't load us up with a bunch of dead money this time though. We save 6 mill. Jonatthan Harrison: Just a sub replacement level player who has been thrust into a starting role. If we can't find an equivalent back up for minimum money then JD has done a poor job. Saves 2.25 mill Josh Bellemy: This one has to be on Gase, which is concerning. This signing just made 0 sense. This saves 2.25 mill After these cuts we are sitting at 78.5 mill Resignings: Robby Anderson: I have really gone back and forth on this one. Part of me doesn't think he is really worth the money, but in reality I think the biggest problem for him is that he is the clear number 1 guy, and he really isn't that guy. If we can put other weapons around him he can help this offense a ton by consistently taking the top off. We pay him 12 mill per for 3 years. Brian Poole: Guy earned it this year. With how rough our CB situation is we need to keep any positive part of our CB corps. We give him 10 mill per over 3 Alex Lewis: Good enough to bring back as a back up OG. If we go into the season planning on him starting it will be a bad sign, but as a 2 position back up i like how we are sitting. 2.5 mill for 2 years Jordan Jenkins: Don't love it but he has been at least ok for us. He gets 10 mill per since the edge market is nuts. Kelvin Beachum: We resign him to a 2 year deal with an out after 1 year. He starts for us at LT next year which will give any OT we draft a year to learn at RT before moving to LT next year. He isn't my favorite, but i don't savor the idea of throwing Sam to the wolves with a rookie on his blind side next year. 10 mill per FA: Graham Glasgow C: He can play C or OG at a fairly high level. He might not be an all pro but he is a big upgrade over what we have had. Also his position flexibility gives us the ability to take the best OL that falls to us in the draft. We give him 10 mill per for 4 years with possible out after 2 years. Byron Jones CB: I feel like this will be our other big spending move. It will give us 1 legit CB, and we can give Bless and a few other youngsters the chance to win the #2 spot. If Bless can develop Byron, Bless and Brian can be a nice top 3, add in our safeties and we could have a decent secondary. He gets 16 mill per for 4 years. We will make a few other smaller signings after all of these moves we are sitting at 10.6 mill in space. Draft: 1. Cincy: Joe Burrow QB- Duh 2. Redskins: Chase Young EDGE- Duh 3. Lions: Jeffery Okuda CB 4. Giants: Isaiah Simmons Everything 5. Miami: Tua Tagoviaola QB- 6. Chargers: Andrew Thomas OT 7. Carolina: Derrick Brown DT 8. Arizona: Jedrick Wills OT 9. Jax: CeeDee Lamb WR 10. Browns: Tristan Wirfs OT 11. Jets.... so here we are. The 3 OT's are off the board and we aren't pumped about it, but this is where JD's connections come into play. Something Macc didn't have. JD gets on the phone with his former team Philly who badly needs to put weapons around Carson Wentz. They trade up from #21 to take Jerry Jeudy. Jets get #21 and Philly's 2nd rounder 12. Raiders: Henry Ruggs WR- The ghost of Al Davis makes this pick. 13. Indy: Justin Herbert QB 14. TB: Kristian Fulton CB 15. Denver: Laviska Shenault WR 16. ATL: AJ Epenesa EDGE 17. Dallas: Grant Delpit S 18. Miami: Tyler Biadiasz OC 19. Raiders: Kenneth Murray ILBer 20. Jax: Trevon Diggs CB 21. Jets: Mekhi Bekton OT- Dude is a mountain of a man at 6'7 370lbs. The weird thing is he can move like a guy 60lbs smaller. He has all of the length movement and strength you can ever want for the position. He has a few things to work on including keeping his weight down.... maybe even dropping to 345 or so, but I think he has the highest ceiling of the OT's in this class. #48 Jets: Zack Baun EDGE- Guy can move. He is a smart edge player who can also drop back into coverage. Can be the quick pressure around the outside that we have needed forever. He's listed at 235 right now which is on the small side, but much like Brian Burns if he can pack on some weight coming into the combine and maintain his athleticism the sky is the limit. #53. Jets: Brandon Aiyuk WR- Guy can move and has great YAC. Needs to polish up his route running a bit but still has teh ability to gain separation. Used to be a RB so he really does run like one with the ball in his hands. This is something we need especially with the departure of Q and how little we got from Herndon this year. #68. Jets: Cesar Ruiz C/OG- Guy was a top notch recruit and is really stout at the point of attack especially for a C. This gives us flexibility to have him or Glasgow play C, and the other can easily play OG. Dude is a solid 320 or so. Love it. #79. Jets: Ben Bredenson OG- We snag Ruiz' Michigan teammate who is even bigger and stronger. I love how this guy plays. He is out there looking for pancakes, and looking to move people down field off the LOS. Something we had none of this year. #117. Jets: Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB- Love this guy. I have a real affinity for short stocky RB's who can do a bit of everything. With his low center of gravity he is super hard to take down, has good vision, and can catch out of the backfield. *TRADE* Jets trade Lev Bell to the Chiefs for the Chiefs 4th rounder. We eat some of his extra cap space. We end up with the pick and we end up saving 4 mill in the deal. #133. Jets: Levonta Taylor CB- Was a top recruit coming out. Has all the potential in the world, just never really hit his stride in college. Worth a shot in the late 4th. #140 Jets: AJ Dillon RB- I know i know. We just took another RB, but after trading Bell we have basically no RB's on the roster. Also If you haven't noticed from the line picks i want us to smash people in the mouth with our run game. Well this is a 250lber with some real juice. People are gonna be sick of tackling this guy after a while. #190 Jets: Van Jefferson WR- This guy doesn't have the highest ceiling on the planet due to some limited athleticism but man is he polished. Can release off the line, can run every route, and just knows how to gain separation. Also..... his dad just happens to be our WR coach... hence how polished he is. We need to get Sam as many guys that can get open as possible and this kid can do it.
  4. 2020 Draft Prospects

    I could accept Beachum back next year, but i think we are vastly overrating Lewis if we want him to be in our starting line up next year. He only seemed decent because of the trash he replaced, and the line came back together a bit more when he and Harrison were in there... ie they could handle a simple stunt. But we clearly had the worst rushing offense in the league last year, and that was due to the fact that we had 0 guys on the line that could really ever get any sort of push, including Lewis. Beachum was rubbish in the run game but was at least an above average pass blocker.
  5. Jets fire Mike Maccagnan.

    DJ at least has a fair amount of experience as a scout with actual NFL teams, and is fairly well respected. Mayock, as much as i liked him on NFLN had 0 experience with actual football teams other than playing and talking on TV.
  6. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    JJ Watt i guess
  7. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I'd say Dortch is a better YAC guy than Brown. He is far more elusive. And I think a healthy Brown wins in a foot race, but not by a massive amount. They were getting similar separation on deep balls. Brown got a lot of YAC by just running straight and being wide open to begin with. Also N'keal was only 6'2 at the combine but he did weigh 228.... not sure where you are getting your measurables, but Davis sills was 6'3 at the combine.
  8. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    He was in a LOT more dynamic offense. Dee Dee Westbrook had a WAY better year in 2016 than Hollywood has ever had, with over 200 more yards and 7 more TD's than Brown has ever had. He was also 3 inches taller and weighed 12 more pounds than Brown did at the combine, AND Dee Dee ran a 4.34 at his pro day, and wasn't coming off of lisfranc injury. Dude was taken in the 4th round..... it makes no sense. Hollywood only had 240 more yards than Dortch this year while playing in the #4 passing offense in the nation. Wake Forest was 55th. That isn't comparing apples to apples and the dude still had similar production. I guess my point is that Brown was over drafted, and Dortch was underdrafted, and Brown probably has the higher ceiling, but i really don't think they are as far apart as their draft value would dictate.
  9. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Hell... he weighs more than Hollywood Brown who went as the first WR off the board..... lets not pretend height is going to help Hollywood at all, he isn't gonna win many jump balls regardless. Have you watched any of his tape? I thought he was really impressive. Kid is one of the more elusive guys i have see from this entire draft. And it's not like he is slow either. He ran a 4.49 shortly after a surgery, out of shape and with 0 preparation to run the 40. I don't know who this person is so i can't judge him much... though if it is the same guy from the turn on the jets podcast i, i have listened to a few episodes and found him fairly unimpressive. I am aware this guy is an UDFA but he produced over a 1k season at wake forest with a collection of nobodies slinging him the ball. At 5'7 173 he had almost double the yardage of the next receiver at wake. He may not make it but watch his tape yourself, and lemme know if you come away unimpressed. Also dude had a 4 TD game... the last 3 TD's were after he punctured his intestines on a crappy end zone pylon on the first TD.... he kept playing while rapidly declining and scored 3 more... then was rushed to the hospital..... i am not counting that dude out.
  10. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I love Dortch. Really rooting for him. I think he could really do for us some of the things Gase had Albert Wilson do for us last year.
  11. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Ya... because the Jets have really excelled at developing edge players. I just think criticizing the Leo pick is a hard argument to make even knowing that he hasn't been playing at a superstar level so far. The rest of that draft is just not great. Even Gurley.... dude has had some success but only when in a complete powerhouse offense. He is a good player but RB isn't worth an early 1st imo. After that Beasly is just a flat out bad player. If i am not mistaken he was the last rated Edge in the NFL last year. Looking back at that draft there honestly isn't 1 player taken after Leo in the rest of the 1st that i would probably take over him... and i am not even a big Leo backer.
  12. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    While i would certainly love to add talent to the WR room, especially a dominant #1 which changes how defenses approach the game. And i am always a proponent of drafting at least 1 RB every year, though generally not that early. I think we have rarely been in a spot in the 1st round to take a top notch WR. The next WR off the board after Leo was Kevin White, then Devante Parker, then Agholor, then Perriman, then Dorsett, then he took Devin Smith arg, then DGB and Funchess.... none of those guys is even a #2. After Lee, we missed out on Fuller (decent but hurt all the time), Doctson, Treadwell, Sterling Shepard (he is ok), and Thomas (ya he is damn good) After Adams we missed out on Mike Williams, John Ross, then Zay Jones, Curtis Samuel, then way farther down JuJu ya he's good. I am not gonna go over last years because we clearly needed to take Sam... My main point is ya... i want great RB's but they have been few and far between early in the draft, and i think the main travesty is our lack of attention paid to the O line. I would rather have the best O line in the league and the worst WR corps in the league than vice versa.
  13. Jets select TE Trevon Wesco in round 4

    Dude had the 2nd most broken tackles of any TE in this class.... 12 broken tackles.... he only had 26 catches lol.
  14. Jets select EDGE Jachai Polite in round 3, 68th overall

    Shane Ray was good in college, but man i hated his tape too. If he didn't win with his first step then he just was done. Had no other moves or anything else.
  15. Jets select TE Trevon Wesco in round 4

    Hockenson is definitely the best all around TE in the draft by a large margin. But this kid is pretty damn good. Good hands and moves better than his 40 time would make you think. And as a blocker he straight up murders people. He doesn't so much try to wall off and redirect defenders as he does tries to pancake them.
