Dalbin Osorio with a scouting report on running back Ka’Deem Carey
The New York Jets are expected to have as many as 12 draft picks in May’s draft, barring any trades. With holes to fill across the board, and the Jets opting to not fill some of them through free agency, there are many prospects in play for the Jets.
Arguably the two position groups that many expect to not be affected by the draft are running back and defensive line. However, Mike Goodson’s legal situation is one to be monitored over the next couple of months (as I stated in my ideal off-season, I think he will have to be replaced) so the Jets could be in the market for a change of pace running back to pair with Chris Ivory. Word came out today that the Jets may be interested in soon to be former Titans running back Chris Johnson. Our TJ Rosenthal gave his thoughts on that in today’s No Huddle. In any event, we’ll continue breaking down the running backs once a week between now and the draft and highlighting if there’s a fit and where the Jets should draft them. You’ll see my grades for the prospects below as well. Up this week is Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey.

Joe Caporoso with 12 thoughts on the New York Jets heading into April
Most of the focus in the NFL is about to shift to the NFL Draft, which is still over five weeks away. The New York Jets remain flush with cap space and are loaded with twelve total selections. However, their apparent unwillingness to enter the chase for wide receiver DeSean Jackson and continued judicious, guarded approach to free agency has many fans and certain writers frustrated. Let’s break open a Sunday 12 Pack and take a closer look at the team’s thought process and what could be on the way in the coming weeks. As always, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for further discussion and breakdowns.

Free agency has all but ground to a halt. Though the New York Jets 2014 roster has started to take shape, the team has twelve draft picks and can add a much needed infusion of talent. One of the major areas of need for the Jets is in the secondary, both at safety and corner. With this in mind, lets take a look at a possible early target for the team, Deone Buchanon.

After weeks of reports and speculation, the Eagles released star wide out Desean Jackson this afternoon. Jackson is coming off a season where he caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. He was due to make around $10 million this season and a little over $12 million the following two seasons.
Recent reports from nj.com have also caused quite the stir this morning, citing that Jackson may be “gang affiliated.” Here are my points to ponder in regards to the Jets possibly bringing in Desean Jackson… Continue reading “Eagles Release Desean Jackson: Points To Ponder”
Wide receivers are fun to scout, especially considering that the Jets will likely be looking at one early this May. Yet the process of scouting them is often abbreviated or done is haste when playmaking ability is evident. I see this often today and I have major issues with it for many reasons. I believe the position I’ve learned the most about through scouting prospects is at receiver, so seeing underrated traits or flaws go unaccounted for is striking to me.
There are so many of these minor issues that are much more important than the community makes them out to be. However, one stands above the rest due to the hidden complexity of it and how essential it is for the basis of a receivers’ skillset, and that is a wide area I’d like to call “catching ability.” Continue reading “2014 NFL Draft: The Wide Receiver Fables Part 1”
Joe Caporoso on why the New York Jets should go get DeSean Jackson
Despite public posturing earlier in the week, the relationship between DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles has likely reached a point of no return. When there is this much chatter on a player leaving a team and the General Manager and Head Coach remain so noncommittal about his return, he is as good as gone. The Eagles hope to trade him but eventually just releasing him outright is not out of the question. There has been debate about whether the Jets should pursue him via trade or look to sign him if he is released. Considering the Jets financial situation, their need at the position, Jackson’s skill set and his fit into their offense…yes…the Jets should go get DeSean Jackson.

Dalbin Osorio breaks down how there is talent available at every spot of the NFL Draft
Now that the first couple of weeks of free agency have passed and the collegiate pro days have begun, much attention has turned to the NFL Draft. The New York Jets, armed with 12 selections, are one of the teams to watch. Last year, the Jets were able to walk out with the Defensive Rookie of The Year, a cornerback that finished the season winning rookie of the month honors, a potential franchise quarterback, and an improving left guard.
