Draft SZN Podcast: The crew discusses players to avoid draft weekend, prospects of the week, mid round priorities, the need at cornerback and much more…

The Draft SZN Podcast is back!  Dalbin Osorio, Dan Essien and Clayton Smarslok hit on the following topics:

  • 1) Name Association/No Explanation: It seems like none of the consensus top 10 picks have any major knocks on them, but are there any players you sincerely hope the Jets steer clear of?
  • 2) Looking back, which mid-round player are you most irritated Macc passed on? 
  • 3) What is the furthest back you’d feel comfortable trading before you start to worry Macc may swing and miss (and any particular targets)?

TOJ Pick Six: Free Agents For New York Jets Connected To Coaching Staff

Dalbin Osorio with six free agents connected to the current New York Jets coaching staff they could target

The Pick Six is back like we re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick, as we turn our attention to arguably the most important off-season for the New York Jets. Faster than Paulie can lose a round to me in What’s Your Point, the beginning of the league year is a week away. Armed with almost $100M in cap space, and a few difference makers set to potentially hit the market, the New York Jets need to be in on just about everybody as they try to end playoff drought that’s nearing TEN seasons. Instead of giving you only guys that I would target overall, I wanted to give you a list of guys the team can realistically  target that have a connection to the current coaching staff. Let’s do what Sam Darnold shouldn’t do on his first snap next season, and return this pick six:

  3. Do you have more or less respect for Mike McCarthy after he reportedly asked for a “Godfather offer” from the Jets?

Dalbin Osorio New York Jets Dream Offseason (Kingsbury HC Edition)

Dalbin Osorio with his dream offseason if the New York Jets hire Kliff Kingsbury as the Head Coach

With news that the New York Jets are interviewing former Jets QB, Texas Tech HC, and current USC OC Kliff Kingsbury, it made sense to see what a probable Kingsbury coaching staff would look and should look like. Alot of Jets fans thoroughly enjoyed the Jets young nucleus, led by Jamal Adams, openly pining for the former Jets QB, but if you look closer maybe the signs were there all along: Maccagnan signed Case Keenum (Kingsbury QB), traded up for Baker Mayfield (Kingsbury QB), signed Davis Webb (another Kingsbury QB) and Brian Heimerdinger’s dad was Kliff’s OC when he was in New York. I think the front office is in unison here.

At the bottom, you will also see a probable Kingsbury/Maccagnan off-season with players signed, traded, and a mock draft. Let’s dive right in:

TOJ Pick Six: Replacements for New York Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles

Dalbin Osorio with a pick six of potential HC replacements for Todd Bowles…

With the New York Jets currently sitting at 3-5, and another season likely not ending in a playoff appearance, this fanbase will most likely start looking towards the off-season. Armed with 3 top 100 picks and $100M in cap space, as well as their presumptive franchise QB in Sam Darnold entering year 2, this is set to become one of the more attractive jobs for potential head coaches should the team decide to move on from Head Coach Todd Bowles. Here are six candidates I would look towards, plus a prediction at the bottom on who I think coaches Gang Green next year.
