New York Jets – Pre-Free Agency 7 Round Mock Draft

Clayton Smarslok with a seven round mock draft for the New York Jets in advance of free agency…

Before the craziness that is NFL Free Agency, why not put out one last mock draft? The Jets are currently a very needy team heading into free agency with only a couple spots absolutely secure. After trading with the Raiders today for Kelechi Osemele, their cap space now falls to 83 million which is still more than enough to fill many of those holes. But we’re going to act like the draft is right now.

Using The Draft Network’s Mock Draft Machine and their predictive board, these are the best results the Jets and their fans could hope for. Whether you agree or not, let me know!

New York Jets Message to Mike Maccagnan – No Excuses

Tyson Rauch on Mike Maccagnan having no excuses on being able to build a contender by this point in his tenure

As the clock winds down to the start of NFL free agency the expectations continue to skyrocket for the fans of the New York Jets. Their beloved team is armed with over $100 million dollars in cap space, which puts the organization in a position to compete for any player that is available. Now it is up to Jets’ general manager Mike Maccagnan and his staff to put actions behind their words and significantly increase the talent level of the roster. Anything less than a well-executed free agency plan is completely inexcusable, especially after enduring the last two years of a “true rebuild” which produced a barren roster.  A legitimate “put up or shut up” period is ahead for Mikey Macc, with failure not an option if the team wants to be a playoff contender anytime soon.

New York Jets Deep Dive – The Wide Receiver Position

Joe Caporoso with a deep dive on the New York Jets current situation at wide receiver

The New York Jets have been a work in progress at wide receiver for a seemingly endless amount of time. There have been a few one off years of production (hello, 2015) but the reality is that in this decade the Jets have had two receivers exceed 1,000 yards in a single season and they both happened in 2015 (Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker). Going back even further, since 2000, the Jets have only had three other seasons where they had a 1,000 yard receiver (Jerricho “Gawd” Cotchery in 2007, Laveranues Coles in 2006 and 2002)…that is a staggering lack of production in a league that is becoming increasingly offensively dominated and pass happy. 

Heading into 2019, the Jets have their quarterback in place but there are questions about the supporting cast around him, particularly at wide receiver. Let’s take an inventory of what they currently have and how they could improve to make life easier for Sam Darnold.
