New York Jets 2019 Draft Watchlist: Volume II, RBs Edition

Connor Rogers with a New York Jets NFL Draft watchlist for 2019, focusing on the running back position…

When the New York Jets gave Isaiah Crowell a modest three year, $12 million deal this offseason, they essentially slapped a band aid on their running back group.

Crowell, who is offered very minimal guaranteed money beyond this season, is a fine player to pair with Bilal Powell in the backfield.

Fine: not spectacular, not poor – just mediocre. With the 29 year old Powell set to hit free agency after this year, the position is a key spot to watch for the 2019 offseason as the unit could undergo a makeover.

With that note, the college football season and running back draft class will be a vital area to watch this year. Here are a few early names to put the spotlight on for your watchlist.

Making The Year Two Jump: Wide Receiver Chad Hansen

Connor Rogers with a closer look at New York Jets WR Chad Hansen and if he can make a year two “jump”

While the Jets have a very crowded wide receiver depth chart at the moment, it’s safe to assume Mike Maccagnan would like to see progress from each of the receivers he took in the 2017 NFL Draft in ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen.

Neither were particularly productive as rookies last season, but it’s not time to hit the panic button just yet on the former third and fourth round selections. What can they bring in 2018?

Let’s start with Hansen in this edition, who has wasted little time turning heads during OTA’s.
