Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select DT Quinnen Williams

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets taking DT Quinnen Williams third overall

The New York Jets stayed put with the third overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and selected Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. He will join Leonard Williams, Henry Anderson and Steve McLendon to form a very talented defensive line (sound familiar?) and bring a unique pass rushing ability to the group. To be clear, this Williams is a superior prospect to the four other recent interior defensive linemen the Jets have taken in round one and is arguably the most talented player in this draft class.

Dalbin Osorio with his top 22 players in the 2019 NFL Draft

In honor of tonight’s draft and the release of Avengers Endgame being the culmination of the Infinity Saga for Marvel, I am giving you my top 22 prospects (there have been 22 MCU movies released). Here is the hope that the Jets land a few of these guys, because the NFL is riddled with dumb GMs.

Enjoy Endgame AND the Draft friends!

TOJ Pick Six – NFL Draft Trades New York Jets Can Make

Dalbin Osorio with six prospective trades the New York Jets could make tonight

Mike Maccagnan has not been hesitant to make trades around and during the NFL Draft, whether it’s for veteran reinforcements (Ryan Clady) or star players (Brandon Marshall). This year, there seems to be an abundance of guys rumored to be on the block. With the Jets having limited draft capital, it seems like they won’t be getting involved. However, Macchiato Mike would be wise to circle back to teams he has traded with to both add draft capital and/or more talent to a team that is still a few players away from competing for a playoff spot. Here are 6 trades the Jets could make this weekend with partners they’ve had in the past under Mike Maccagnan, as well as who i’d take with the picks received using Matt Miller’s mock draft from this morning as a guide:

New York Jets – Day Before NFL Draft Mock Draft Roundup

Stephen Russo rounds up all the day before NFL Draft mock picks for the New York Jets

Is Arizona drafting Kyler Murray number one overall? Does San Francisco truly value Quinnen Williams over Nick Bosa? Is the smoke around the Jets and Ed Oliver real? We have reached that time of year (which is pretty much year-round at this point) where you can’t believe a single word from any “source” regarding what will happen on Thursday night in Nashville at the 2019 NFL Draft. The rumor mill is in full swing. Smoke screens are everywhere. Per Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, who tweeted out that his trusted source said “No one f**king knows anything right now. It’s going to be an interesting Thursday night.”

Simply put: Trust. No. One.

New York Jets NFL Draft Decision: Variety vs. Redundancy

Dan Essien examines the NFL’s best defensive fronts and how they should influence the New York Jets 3rd overall pick.

The biggest debate for the Jets front office and for the fans is who the Jets should draft in the first round. With Nick Bosa almost a sure thing to San Francisco at 2,  much of this debate has centered around Quinnen Williams and Josh Allen. Lately, Ed Oliver has started to gain some steam. While the strategy of best player available has been the Jets approach, I believe there’s a league pattern they should be paying close attention to. Especially if they end up not trading out of the 3rd overall pick Let’s discuss how some of the best front lines in the NFL have valued variety over redundancy when building their defensive front.
