Mike Nolan steps into the TOJ Film Room to take a look at Rookie OL Oday Aboushi to determine where he might fit in the Jets offense.
If you search the internet for anything about Oday Aboushi, you will find a lot more hits than the typical 5th round pick. Most of the articles are about how he is one of the first Palestinian-Americans to play in the NFL. The more I read about Oday Aboushi the more impressed I am with him as a person. In fact, he was once honored at the US State Department by Hillary Clinton for being an inspirational Muslim athlete. Now that the dust has settled in the aftermath of the NFL Draft and Jets fans have learned a little bit about who Oday Aboushi is as a person, it is time to figure out who he is as a player and where he might be able to fit in the Jets’ offense.

Connor Rogers on the New York Jets building their defense from the inside out
When the Jets selected Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 13th overall pick they acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Darrelle Revis, the fan base was quite shocked. The Jets had taken defensive linemen with their first and third round picks in 2011 (Muhammad Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis) and also with their first round pick in 2012 (Quinton Coples). With so much talent accumulated upfront now, Richardson’s development along with the rest of the interior line could possibly be the most vital aspect to the team’s future success on defense.

Can the New York Jets re-establish the “middle class” of their roster?
An essential part of any quality NFL roster is a well-established “middle class” of talent. These are the players who aren’t your headline names or playmakers nor are they bottom of the roster depth guys. Generally, they are competent starters and reserve players who are talented enough to be regular contributors without consistently hurting your team. In 2009 and 2010, the Jets had a wealth of these players. Yet as the roster deteriorated at the top and bottom, the middle suffered as well. A huge part of the Jets rebuilding process will be reestablishing this middle class of talent.

Mike Donnelly projects the fantasy football value of the New York Jets skill position players
June has arrived and before we know it, we’ll be breaking down mini-camp, then training camp and then the preseason. We’ll turn around and then the Bucs will be in town to kick off the 2013 season with their hopefully less than 100% healthy star cornerback and we’ll all rejoice that another football season has arrived. But almost as importantly, while all these things are going on, it means that fantasy football season has arrived, and it is never too early to start preparing so you can earn bragging rights and humiliate your friends on the fantasy gridiron. Today we are going to take a look at the roster and see which New York Jets are going to be worth taking a look at come draft day, and which are, umm, not.

Thoughts on the New York Jets signing wide receiver Obomanu and other notes from today’s OTA practice
The New York Jets made an intriguing signing today, bringing in former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ben Obomanu. Since coming into the league in 2007, Obomanu has racked up 87 receptions, 1,209 yards and 7 touchdowns. In 2011, he started 7 games for the Seahawks, finishing with 37 receptions for 436 yards. He was gradually bumped down the depth chart in 2012 and made an impact in only one game last year for Seattle, pulling in 3 catches for 50 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. It is worth noting, Obomanu does have 15 career post-season catches for 174 yards in four career games, so he has experience in big spots.
