New York Jets: Four Round Mock Draft

Staff Writer Frank Giasone highlights some potential 2013 NFL Draft scenarios for the New York Jets in rounds 1-4.

This is where things really get interesting. With April 25th quickly approaching, the excitement surrounding the 2013 NFL Draft gets amped up. For the New York Jets, this draft is one of the most important in recent memory, as the chances to rebuild (or reload, if you’re an optimist) a roster in desperate need of talent will hinge on a solid three days at Radio City Music Hall.

Along with a heightened anticipation comes a hoard of mock drafts from draft analysts everywhere. With countless scenarios capable of playing out, mocks don’t offer much more than educated guesswork. But while we all know it’s an inexact science, the truth is, they’re fun to read.

So it’s with those factors in mind that I decided to put together a four-round mock draft solely from the Jets perspective including multiple draft selections for each round, bracing for the likelihood that the most highly sought after player will be off the board when the Jets pick.

New York Jets Should Cut Tim Tebow, And Cut Him Now

The New York Jets should cut Tim Tebow as soon as possible

For some reason the New York Jets decided to have a conference call with fans this past week featuring new GM John Idzik and Head Coach Rex Ryan. Not surprisingly there was a question about TIM TEBOW that was responded to in a manner that hinted he could remain on the team next season. Shame on Idzik for not answering the question “We don’t want Tebow. Nobody wants to trade for Tebow so we are going to have to cut Tebow…and there goes any small percentage of trade leverage we had.” By giving the only answer he had a choice to give, a non-answer, he spawned articles like this from Ian Rapoport at NFL.com and a slew of others arguing for the Jets to keep Tebow. Um, what?

The Film Don’t Lie: Chance Warmack vs. Jonathan Cooper

With experts starting to reexamine who the best OG is in the NFL Draft, Mike Nolan takes a look at the film to break down Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper

In this post combine lull, a few draft prognosticators have gone on record to say that Jonathan Cooper is a better OG prospect than Chance Warmack. This is most likely due to Cooper’s excellent combine performance. Sometimes the combine can generate hype in the media that really isn’t prevalent in NFL War Rooms. Considering the Jets’ 2012 starting guards are currently unrestricted free agents and the team could be eyeing up a replacement as high as the 9th pick, let’s look at the tape to see who is really the better prospect.

New York Jets – Under The Radar Players

Mike Donnelly on under the radar New York Jets who will have bigger roles in 2013

By now, Jets fans are all familiar with the many holes on this roster and have grand ideas in their heads about how they can all be fixed in one simple offseason. Well, obviously that isn’t going to be the case. There are simply too many holes to fill, and with the resources John Idzik has available — both draft picks-wise and money-wise — there is just no way they can all be plugged with new players. Therefore, some guys who are already here in Jets uniforms are going to have to fill those holes themselves. Many players who had smaller roles in 2012 are going to have to step up and contribute in a much bigger way once September roles around. Here are some of the players we can expect to see a whole lot more of in 2013. Continue reading “New York Jets – Under The Radar Players”

Turn On The Jets NFL Mock Draft 2.0

Chris Gross with the Turn On The Jets post combine 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

With the 2013 NFL Combine officially in the books, we are beginning to get a better idea of where prospects rank throughout the entire draft pool, as well as at their respective positions. The Franchise Tag deadline came and went on Monday, and with that, it is becoming slightly more feasible to identify team needs throughout the NFL. While these needs are subject to major change once the free agency period begins at the start of the new league year next week, let’s take a look at how the first round of this year’s draft could shake out, if it were to take place today.

Turn On The Jets 2013 Free Agency Primer 1.0

Turn On The Jets with a preview of how the New York Jets could handle free agency, which begins on March 12th – Version 1.0

NFL free agency kicks off on March 12th, only 8 days from today. The New York Jets are not expected to be overly active considering their salary cap situation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering how the team has been run in previous years, they need to sit out the first wave of overpaid free agents and settle for 2nd and 3rd tier players who they can get at bargain rates. The focus for this team needs to be on building through the NFL Draft. Regardless, there will be some measure of activity from the Jets in the coming months, here is the first version of our round-up heading into next week

Revis to the Patriots is not funny

The Daily News published an image of Darrelle Revis in a Pats jersey last week. As it made an extreme point of what could happen if #24 remains a Jet through 2013 and was free to choose his own team in 2014. Not funny.

Certain photos are simply tasteless, and serve no purpose other than to shock and sell papers. Revis in Patriot blue is one of those, We are still waking up in cold sweats at the thought of that horrific image. Continue reading “No Huddle – Welcome To March Edition”

New York Jets Are Bargain Shopping For 2013

TJ Rosenthal on the New York Jets bargain hunting for 2013

David Garrard? Brady Quinn? What kind of upgrade at starting quarterback is this? Heck the Jets might as well let Vinny Testaverde sling the rock around Florham Park, right? GM John Idzik is clearly looking to change the foundation of the Jets for the better now, by trading, restructuring, and bargain shopping. Room will be made soon enough for some flexibility, but not the kind that will allow a plethora of high priced quality to enter the premises in return. So don’t be shocked folks, when the parade of low budget vets brought in for workouts, begins. It will happen early and often. As the Jets try to catch affordable lightning in a bottle more than once in 2013.
