Dalbin Osorio with a day two preview for the New York Jets in the 2020 NFL Draft
With the first round in the books, and the Jets filling their massive hole at left tackle with a massive man in Mekhi Becton, all eyes turn to day two and three. This is where Joe Douglas can really make the moves he needs to try and end an almost decade-length playoff drought. The Jets enter day 2 with the following needs unfilled: Wide Receiver, EDGE, and Cornerback. They could, also, fortify their Interior Offensive Line group by taking a guard or adding a Center and moving newly-signed Center Connor McGovern to guard. Here’s 4 long-form thoughts that can serve as a guide for Day 2, and then a day 2 mock draft for Gang Green.

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top centers and defensive linemen in the NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
Another day, another #PickSix, and today you get two with a heavy dosing of (to quote Big E of the New Day) #ManMeat! This time, Team #TOJ continues our draft coverage with the top six Centers and Interior Defensive Linemen in the 2020 NFL Draft. The New York Jets signed an above average Center in free agency, but that Center can also play guard so you could see them take a whack at adding either a starting-caliber C that can then allow them to move Connor McGovern to guard. Make no mistake, this is a very good Center class with 8 Centers grading out to potential long-term starters in my opinion.
In regards to interior defensive linemen, no pick that the Jets possess should be used on an interior defensive lineman. Seriously, they are all the way good on that position group. However, on the off-chance that Joe Douglas has allowed Mike Maccagnan to run the draft, its important we familiarize ourselves with some names.
Like a newly-retired Eli Manning errant throw, lets return this pick six.

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top five offensive guards in the NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
Whereas the Jets tackle group isn’t the best, the OG group has a bit more potential with a returning Alex Lewis, healthy Brian Winters, newly signed Greg Van Roten, and the potential for Connor McGovern to slide over to one of the starting guard spots should they Jets add a Center. The good thing about this draft is that there are a lot of players who offer positional flexibility, and can play Center and Guard.

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top offensive tackles in the 2020 NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
As currently constructed, the Jets have the worst starting tackles in football hands down in George Fant and Chuma Edoga. Joe Douglas was smart to sign Connor McGovern, one of the better Centers in the NFL, but the OL rebuild is far from finished. Other than WR, this is the only logical position group to be the pick at 11.
Dalbin Osorio ranks the top wide receivers in the 2020 NFL Draft and we grade your mock!
With the NFL Draft now 9 nights away, Team #TOJ continues our draft coverage. Today, we give you another #PickSix, with the top 6 WRs in the 2020 NFL Draft. When you look at wide receiver corps throughout the NFL, you can objectively argue that the Jets have a bottom 5 group in the league as it is currently constructed. It’s better than the Raiders, Washington, Giants, Ravens, 49ers, and that might really be it. Three of those teams have better Tight Ends than the Jets currently employ, so that levels the field of pass catchers overall. The Jets not only need a replacement for Robby Anderson’s 50+ catches and 770+ yards, but they need depth as well because you have no idea what you’re getting from Quincy Enunwa.
Like new Bucs QB Tom Brady’s last pass in a Patriots uniform, lets take this pick six all the way.

With the NFL Draft 10 nights away, Team #TOJ is about to kick this thing into high gear with more mock drafts and analysis than you can count. Today, we begin with the top 6 QBs and top 6 RBs in the 2020 NFL Draft. While the Jets would be wise to add a young arm to groom behind Sam Darnold, we don’t expect them to be active in the QB market. However, at RB with Leveon Bell entering what is being assumed is the last year of his deal and no backup on the roster I’d expect that position to be addressed in the draft.

Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing CB Pierre Desir
When the New York Jets cut CB Darryl Roberts, it stood to reason that GM Joe Douglas had a move in mind to add a veteran at cornerback so Gregg Williams and the defensive coaching staff didn’t have to go into the draft with Bless Austin and Arthur Maulet as the only options on the outside. Well, not even 24 hours later that move happened as the Jets signed former Colts CB Pierre Desir.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing OG Greg Van Roten
The New York Jets continued their complete makeover of the offensive line by signing former Panthers offensive guard Greg Van Roten. Signing the 30 year old former Pennsylvania Quaker probably signals the end of Brian Winters’ tenure with Gang Green. The Jets will save $7M in cap space with his release. His release, coupled with Darryl Roberts’ earlier release, nets the more financial flexibility to continue adjusting their roster…
