Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six and of best and worst case scenarios for the New York Jets on day two of the NFL Draft
The New York Jets got the best player in the draft for the second time in three years under General Manager Mike Maccagnan by selecting LSU Safety Jamal Adams. This was a great pick coupled with some luck, as Adams should not have been on the board at 6. Repeat it after me: Jamal Adams is not a box safety. We’ll do a deeper dive into how Adams fits on this roster in the next day or so, but with this article we’ll take a look at who the best pick at 39, 70, and 107 are for the Jets tonight. I will also provide you the worst case scenario, aside from not making a pick at all, for these picks. Continue reading “TOJ Pick Six – Jets Best/Worst Case Scenario for Day 2 of NFL Draft”

Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six on offensive and defensive linemen in the 2017 NFL Draft the New York Jets could target
For this week’s #PickSix, i’ll be going in the trenches to rank six offensive and defensive linemen in the 2017 NFL Draft the New York Jets could target. Some may think they don’t need to add players on either side, but this is a team that could stand to add depth. For clarification, this will not include EDGEs because to me, that has evolved into its own position group…

Dalbin Osorio on if the New York Jets should pursue Chase Daniel at quarterback
One of the bonuses of being patient and letting the market dictate itself before you jump in on free agency is that you are able to take advantage of opportunities that aren’t there at the beginning. When free agency started, the QB market was Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, and Colin Kaepernick. As of today, the market includes Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Chase Daniel. The Jets are not expected to be in on Romo, have expressed interest in Cutler, but is Daniel the best option aside from re-signing Geno Smith?

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen me constantly tweet the hashtag #DontPanic as the offseason is now two days old. The New York Jets were in on Nick Perry and Mike Glennon until presumably the price tags for both players became too high. They appeared to not be in on any of the top flight cornerbacks, like AJ Bouye and Stephon Gilmore, and they did not appear to be linked to any of the tight ends like Martellus Bennett either. As exorbitant contracts were doled out ($47.5 million for Pierre Garcon?), Mike Maccagnan smartly sat out the first wave of free agency and it appeared he would not give in to impulse and was very content with resigning core players that performed well and letting the market come to him.

Dalbin Osorio goes four quarters on the New York Jets rebuilding in free agency…
With the league year set to begin and the New York Jets armed with cap space, ALOT of Jets fans are clamoring for the front office to throw money at the issues plaguing this team. Understand that this isn’t a one year fix, and I tend to laugh at people who simultaneously say “go pay Mike Glennon $18 million per, he’s young” and “we need to be careful about not just throwing money at mediocre players.”
The irony seems to be lost on some folks, and then its made even worse when the same fans say they’d prefer Glennon over Tyrod Taylor because of his age (spoiler alert: they’re the same age). Again, irony. Must be the whole #QuarterbackingWhileWhite thing. Or, and this is a conversation I’ve had with friends on numerous conversations, it is very possible that fans, like front offices, like their quarterbacks a certain way. If all things were equal, Mike Glennon wouldn’t see more money on the market than Taylor, Colin Kaepernick, Brian Hoyer, or Jay Cutler. Yet somehow he’s staring at an $18 million dollar payday.

In this new bi-weekly article series, I take a 12-line look at 4 topics that #JetsTwitter has tweeted about that has caught my eye.
