  1. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    My thought is that after the owner's meetings we'll quickly work out a trade with a team who looks to move up for #3 for Haskins. It's all but certain that SF won't move down from #2 (this was fairly similar to the Giants last year; worst kept secret was that they were taking Saquon just as SF is going to take the best defender) and that will become more clear at the meetings. Additionally, teams should gain more clarity on Arizona's intentions as well. If they make Rosen available, it's a clear intication that they're going for Murray. If they don't, it could mean that a possibility remains that both Haskins/Murray are there at 3. The former is more likely, and the latest buzz is the Chargers are the most likely landing spot, which would be the best case scenario for us. OAK has shown a ton of interest in Haskins, so if a team like the NYG/DEN/CIN/WAS really wants Haskins, they'll likely feel compelled to move up to 3, and the Jets showed the world last year that moving up earlier is the way to go. Ultimately, I'm sticking with my prediction in my original mock: Jets will send 1(3) to WAS. Compensation will likely be robust, and we should all be happy campers.
  2. State of the Jets Skill Players 2019

    I like this group more than most, the key issue is the health of Enunwa. We absolutely should draft a WR that can potentially replace him next year or the year after. I really like him a lot, I just don't know that he'll be able to stay healthy. If he does, it'll be interesting to see who sticks next year (him or Robby). The most under-appreciated name on this list is Chris Herndon. Bias aside, I think Herndon is going to be one of the best TEs in the NFL. The most difficult adjustment for a TE going from college to the pros is really the physical and mental anguish they deal with. Seeing how Herndon was able to come in and be an impact player at his age with limited experience is rare. His 69.6% catch rate is stellar for a rookie, and keep in mind the guy throwing to him (for the most part) was a rookie as well. I fully expect him to take a huge leap in Adam Gase's offense. By December, you'll be buying your #89 gear just in time for Christmas.

    I honestly think they're the landing spot for Rosen. He fits what Taylor wants to do and they'd have the luxury of a straight up QB competition this offseason. If Rosen were to win, there's nothing stopping them from cutting or trading Dalton; zero cap ramifications. In fact, it could open the door for Dalton to join a team like WAS if they come out of the draft without a QB, or another team if they were to experience injury.

    Anyone see some young John Abraham in Brian Burns?
  5. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    There are 5 teams that I'm looking at as potential trade partners: NYG. I know it seems unlikely, but the narrative that "the NY teams won't trade with one another" is bogus. The Jets and Giants came close to an agreement in 2016, and Maccagnan made it clear at the combine he'd be open to a trade with them. If they love Haskins, that could come to fruition. WAS. If they love Haskins and fear OAK/NYG will take him, they may be compelled to make a move if they miss out on Rosen (assuming Murray goes 1). OAK. See WAS. It could be because of Haskins, or maybe OAK just swaps picks to assure they land Quinnen Williams if he's available. GB. They've become extremely aggressive under new leadership and have plenty of draft capital. If QW is available, they may bite. ATL. Desperate times, desperate measures. They need a playmaker on defense, and they've gotten aggressive for a former Alabama star in the past...

    I wouldn't classify Cimini's report as a "shocker", but I think we will trade down. Could still get him after we do.

    In fairness to Macc, he's been preaching the desire to create a pipeline for those two positions from day 1. I think the bigger problem is not being able to execute. I don't blame him for passing on guys in favor of talent our organization perceives to be as better, but at one point or another you have to get aggressive; identify players who the organization unanimously feels good about, fits a need, that are higher on your board and trade up for them. It's easier said than done (need to have a trade partner, resources, etc.), but not a valid excuse... as a GM you have to figure out a way. Good teams do. Good example: go back to the 2016 NFL Draft. We really loved Laremy Tunsil and offered the Giants our 1(20) and 2(51) for the 10th pick as he slid. They wanted our 4(118) as well, but we said no. Rumors are we made the same offer to a few teams, they all declined. Ultimately we drafted Lee, Hackenberg, and Burris with those picks when we could've had Tunsil. Lesson: If you feel that good about a player, pull the trigger.
  9. 2019 prospects and outlook

    This sounds accurate. That's usually the case for most drafts. The list (no particular order) ELITE: Bosa, Williams TOP 10: Allen, Oliver, White ROUND 1: Bradbury, Burns, Gary, Hockenson, Metcalf, Murray, Sweat, Taylor, Wilkins, J. Williams I'd say the 15 players above are 1st rounders in any draft. Bosa and Williams would be top 5 picks in most drafts; Allen, Oliver, White are top 10 picks in most drafts. From there, open ball game, but I feel fairly confident those guys would be first rounders on most boards. That doesn't mean that other guys aren't worthy... that's what the draft is all about, each team has different tastes of what fits into their scheme, their ability to coach a player, potential, etc. For example: Andre Dillard. I'm sure some teams have him as their top rated OL, and others have him as a mid-2nd.

    Asking more what you think the team will do based on the data available to you (local reporting, team trends, etc.)
  11. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Wanted to get your pulse on something I had been toying in a mock I'm working on; given how aggressive the new regime is I wouldn't put it past you guys to consider... ARI - QB Murray SF - DE Bosa NYJ trade 1(3) to GB for 1(12), 1(30) and 2020 3rd... GB selects: DL Quinnen Williams Thoughts?

    I don't think we'll draft him, but the more I read and watch AJ Brown, the more I like him. It seems like many are grading him based on how he was used in college and assuming that he can't do more. It's not surprising that he has a similar athletic profile to Enunwa; he's basically a much more refined version as a prospect. Similar to Enunwa in his second year as a pro, Brown was asked to do one thing in college (play the slot), but I get the sense he can do a lot more. A team is going to be very happy with him.
  13. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    What's your guys pulse on who will go #2, Bosa or Williams (if both available)? From the outside, I can see justifications for either. Bosa - Ford is a glorified 1-year pact, never have enough edge rushers, can likely play the 4/5 tech and eventually move to LEO, primary LDE in your nickel defense Williams - team not ready to give up on Thomas/Armstead, hole at the 1-tech in the base, possibly get creative and move around Buckner/Williams in nickel packages. I get the sense that the media is higher on Bosa because he's the popular name, but the NFL sees them on even footing. Obviously your decision matters significantly because we will likely end up selecting whoever you guys don't. Ultimately I expect it to be Bosa, but interested in your takes.
  14. 2019 prospects and outlook

    I think if Bosa is there, the Jets won't trade it. They'll take him. If he's not there, they'll try to trade away the pick. Maybe they'll take Allen, but it's sounding more and more like the NFL is cooler on him than the media and us fans are.
