New York Jets – On The Underrated Skill Position Group

Joe Caporoso on perception vs. reality of the New York Jets skill position players…

ESPN’s Bill Barnwell recently ranked all of the offensive “arsenals” in the NFL from 32-1. The New York Jets came in last with the following commentary: 

Former undrafted free-agent wide receiver Robby Anderson leads the way, but the secondary targets are low-ceiling veterans such as Jermaine Kearse and Terrelle Pryor. General manager Mike Maccagnan let Austin Seferian-Jenkins leave, but the duo of former Raiders backup Clive Walford and fourth-round pick Chris Herndon form the majority of one of the league’s worst tight end depth charts. The move to spend $4 million per year on anonymous Browns back Isaiah Crowell doesn’t move the needle. The Jets will be investing in skill-position talent next offseason.

Barnwell (a quality writer who generally has sound research to back his work) is not out of step with other NFL commentators about the Jets. We have previously discussed Mike Clay ranking the Jets roster as the worst in the NFL (he has them with the 30th best group of receivers and 26th best group of running backs). Graham Barfield at Fantasy Guru shared a since deleted tweet of Family Guy characters projectile vomiting to describe the Jets receiver group. New York radio host Anita Marks has also recently questioned the team’s collection of skill position players. A common talking point around this team all offseason has been they have no weapons for Sam Darnold (or whoever plays quarterback).

While nobody is going to argue the Jets have a top tier collection of skill position players, there is a disconnect between perception and reality when looking at the talent and depth of this group.
