We will individually spend time in the film room to break down each draft selection in-depth (and Chris Ivory) in the coming weeks. However, let’s round everything up to cap off the weekend.

Rex 2.0 is Here to Stay

Mike Donnelly on the perception that Rex Ryan has one foot on the door

One of the major storylines heading into the 2013 season in Jets Land is the status of Head Coach Rex Ryan. The media would have you believe he has one foot out the door and the team has set him up for failure. The organization has supposedly handed him the real life version of the Cleveland Indians in Major League, a group of misfits so terrible that he doesn’t stand a chance to win and he will be fired after the season.  We’ve heard it all at this point: He’s a LAME DUCK. He’s been muted. He has no more personnel power. He has to take the bullets this year so the team can start fresh in 2014 with a new coach. He’s only here because Woody doesn’t want to pay him to leave. His tattoo is stupid. He should go back to being a coordinator. Well, I don’t necessarily see it like that, and the first two days of the NFL draft only reinforced my belief. I think the “Rex is a lame duck” stuff is a media creation. Why draft a “QB of the future” if you plan on firing your coach after the season and bringing in a new coach who may want his own guy? No, this team is building for a future that includes Rex Ryan. I think he is here for the long haul. Call it Rex 2.0.

A Closer Look at Sheldon Richardson and the Jets Defense

Mike Nolan takes a deeper look at New York Jets draft pick Sheldon Richardson to see where he fits in Rex Ryan’s defense

The Jets’ second first round pick last night left a lot of people scratching their heads.  The concern wasn’t focused on Sheldon Richardson’s talent, but focused on the fact that they selected a defensive lineman in the first round for the third straight year despite more urgent needs at other positions. No matter what you think about the selection, it’s important to take a look at what Richardson could bring to the Jets defense before completely passing judgment.

New York Jets Draft Sheldon Richardson, Predictions For Rounds 2-3

With the 13th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the New York Jets selected Missouri Defensive Tackle Sheldon Richardson. While this move seemed to have many fans, analysts, and spectators confused considering the overall depth on the defensive line, along with the immense amount of holes throughout the roster, Jets General Manager John Idzik was adamant in his draft approach of selecting talent over specific position. According to Idzik, Richardson and CB Dee Milliner, selected by the Jets with the 9th overall pick, were two of the top players on New York’s board and, although Idzik entertained trade offers, he did not feel as though these offers surpassed the grades he had on either player.
