What did we learn from Geno Smith’s rookie season with the New York Jets?
Similar to the 2013 New York Jets, rookie quarterback Geno Smith had a roller coaster season. Rock bottom was hit when a horrid three game mid-season stretch was capped off with a halftime benching for Matt Simms. At the time, this appeared to be a death blow to a rookie campaign that had a good share of encouraging moments in the early portions of the season. However, Smith turned things around over the final four weeks and ended on a high note, making it more than likely he will be under center for the team in week one of the 2014 season.

As the 2014 NFL Draft talk begins to heat up, it is time to take a look at various prospects that could be on the New York Jets radar. While the Jets saw excellent improvement from young safety Antonio Allen this past season, adding a ball hawk in the draft would help the back end of the secondary. Lets take a look at a guy who is considered the best safety in the 2014 draft class – Alabama safety Ha’Sean “Ha-Ha”” Clinton-Dix.

TJ Rosenthal on the future of New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez
When the free agency period kicks off on March 1st, the New York Jets will instantly be in the market for a veteran quarterback with starting experience. One who could compete in training camp next summer with Geno Smith or simply take over due to Smith’s struggles or injury. Now assuming the Jets aren’t looking to go quarterback in the first round this April and challenge Smith with a rookie, then this decision will be one of the keys to 2014. Having a veteran backup who is both a insurance policy and viable alternative option is something the Jets have lacked under Rex Ryan. Of all the potential names at the top of the current free agent QB list only one has won four playoff games and has appeared in more than one conference championship. Don’t laugh. You guessed it. Ladies and gentleman, presenting Mark Sanchez.

The Senior Bowl took place on Saturday with the South defeating the North 20-10. The South had the better quarterbacks and were able to move the ball more efficiently. More important than who won the game is that these draft prospects put more tape together in game situations against some of the best competition college football has to offer. Here are some notes on how some of these prospects, some more highly touted than others, performed in the game. Be sure to tweet me or leave comments below and let me know who impressed you in the Senior Bowl and who you think the Jets should target.
Note: I included guys who stood out (Either Negatively or Positively) at potential positions of need for the Jets. I also left out some of the guys who are probably off the radar for the Jets based on their needs and draft slots.

Mike Nolan lists some of the players to keep an eye on in the Senior Bowl that the New York Jets could target on draft day.
After a long week of practices and interviews, the Senior Bowl finally takes place today. This “all-star” game is nothing like the NFL version as there is a lot at stake for the Seniors who were lucky enough to get invited to the game. Although it’s a year dominated by underclassmen, there is still some great talent the Jets organization and fans should be looking at in this game. Here is a list of eight guys on offense and eight guys on defense that we should keep a close eye on.
