New York Jets Deep Dive – How To Assess Sam Darnold in 2020

Greg Armstrong with a deep dive on how New York Jets fans should assess Sam Darnold in 2020

Then we see some mind boggling throws and stretches where thoughts creep in of wanting to move on sooner rather than later.

The Jets finally addressed their edge rusher need by picking Jabari Zuniga with the 79th pick. A versatile edge who can stand up or maybe even eventually slide in on DL. Will he be able to finally give the Jets that edge rusher they’ve been searching for? (more…)

New York Jets Post Week 17 Mock Draft

Greg Armstrong With A Post Week 17 Mock Draft…

The New York Jets season has ended and for the ninth straight season, there will be no playoffs. There is a massive amount of work to be done in the offseason.

I took a stab at a post Week 17 mock to see if we can add some pieces that hopefully can push this team into the playoff hunt. (Mock draft done with The Draft Network mock draft machine).

I took a stab at filling some needs for the 2020 Jets. (draft done with TDN Mock Simulator with their TDN predictive board). (more…)
