Scouting the Jets Free Agent Signings: Breno Giacomini

Mike Nolan breaks down the tape on New York Jets right tackle Breno Giacomini

I don’t think anyone realistically saw it coming that the Jets would lose Austin Howard to free agency. It was reported months ago that the Jets main priority in free agency was to resign the right tackle who had been somewhat underrated over the past two seasons. Turns out that this was just the first unfulfilled report of many during this free agency period. When the Jets couldn’t come to terms with Howard, they quickly went to their back up plan and signed former Seahawks right tackle Breno Giacomini. Let’s take a look at what Giacomini will bring to the Jets offensive line.

Notes from the Senior Bowl

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.

Senior Bowl Players to Watch – New York Jets

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.
