Connor Rogers ranks the New York Jets 2014 NFL Draft selections, part one
After a long wait, the 2014 NFL Draft has finally come and gone. The Jets used all twelve of their selections and came away with an intriguing haul. I will not “grade” the draft, as none of these players have stepped on an NFL field yet.
What I will do is rank the picks based on my opinion of potential skill, value, and need. Lets take a look.

Mike Donnelly of TOJ grades the New York Jets 2014 lineup compared to last year’s team
Now that the dust has settled after the NFL draft, we have a better idea of what the New York Jets are going to look like when they open up the 2014 season in a few months against the Raiders. General Manager John Idzik faced a ton of criticism during free agency from impatient fans and media types, but it’s clear by now that he has a plan and he’s sticking to it. He’s going to build this team how he sees fit, mainly by building through the draft.
But just how improved is this year’s team over last year’s 8-8 squad? Well, just as I did a year ago, I’m going to find out by going position by position and comparing last year’s team to what we expect to see come September. And also just like last year, I’m going to use the very scientific and accurate “Tebows” Rating System! Continue reading “Grading the New York Jets 2014 Lineup Changes (Offense)”
Mike O’Connor breaks down the thinking behind the Jets’ selection of Dexter McDougle in the third round of the NFL Draft
When the Jets selected Maryland corner back Dexter McDougle on Friday night of the NFL Draft, a wide variety of fans understandably believed the pick was a slight reach on instinct. Both casual fans unaware of his name entirely and even intense draft fans who knew of his 2013 season ending shoulder injury believed, as a whole, that the Jets possibly could have found better value with the third round selection. However, now that the smoke has cleared, it is time to analyze why John Idzik and company’s risky Day Two selection might actually be their smartest pick of the draft.

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets perceived “need” at wide receiver
Heading into the NFL Draft, the New York Jets two biggest needs were tight end and cornerback. After those two, outside linebacker, safety and wide receiver fell in some order of similar importance. The Jets added their tight end in the second round by stealing Jace Amaro with the 49th pick and added a third and sixth rounder at cornerback (we’ll discuss McDougle and Dixon more in the coming days). However, let’s today focus on their current collection of wide receivers and pass catchers in general…and why this “need” may be overstated.

Joe Caporoso reviews all of the New York Jets day 3 selections in the NFL Draft
The New York Jets stayed put yesterday and added nine players in the 2014 NFL Draft. A big thanks to Cole Patterson and MIke O’Connor for ripping through initial pick breakdowns yesterday. Here are my brief thoughts on each player, with more overview and in-depth analysis on the way throughout the week…
Please note that “players who should be most worried” is just the phrase I am using to identify the players who will be pushed most by each specific pick in training camp. Also the NFL player comparisons don’t necessarily mean I think this pick is going to turn into that guy in terms of production, etc…it is just meant to paint a clearer picture of his game.
