Grading the 2019 New York Jets – The Offensive Line

Stephen Russo grades out the New York Jets offensive line in 2020

The Jets offensive line was quite the story for the 2019 season. From injuries to miscommunication to an inability to block a zero blitz, this unit showed it all… and not in a good way. For too many years, and specifically under Mike Maccagnan, Jets fans and media alike were clamoring for more attention to be paid to this unit. But still, no investment was made and it reared its ugly head in 2019. This position group, which was marginal at best coming into the season, was a major disappointment.

To add salt in the wound, they were oft-injured as well, starting 11 different lineman and nine different line combinations during the season. A lauded Hail Mary by new GM Joe Douglas before the season to lure Ryan Kalil out of retirement to come play center was a huge swing and a miss, and his season ending injury proved to be a blessing in disguise as Jonotthan Harrison filled in much better for the latter part of the season. Early season struggles from Kelvin Beachum (he’s still having nightmares of Myles Garrett) and Brian Winters, a turnstile rotation at right tackle between Brandon Shell and Chuma Edoga, and continual miscommunication and incompetence paved the way for an abysmal season for the Jets’ offensive line.

Why The New York Jets Need To Pay Jamal Adams

Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets need to pay Jamal Adams a long term contract

There is going to be alot of talk over the next couple of months, and it will only intensify as we edge closer to the league year beginning, about what the New York Jets should do this off-season and the different avenues they can take to improve their team.

There will be suggestions on cuts, trade options, trade rumors, free agency targets, mock drafts, more mock drafts, even more mock drafts, and all of this will be designed to both get the fanbase talking and to exhaust every possible solution to end a 9 year playoff drought for the guys in green. As a team that has not particularly drafted well in recent memory, there are not many internal decisions they need to make this year. They already traded Leo Williams, really the last homegrown player they had to decide to keep, and the one thing we can agree on is that this team should look very different next year.

New York Jets – NFL Draft Second Tier Options

Joe Belic with second tier options for the New York Jets with the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft

Jets fandom can rest assure Joe Douglas will be active in free agency and plug several holes (especially along the OL) prior to the draft; this will give the Jets much needed flexibility come draft day.  There is a good possibility Andrew Thomas, Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills, Jerry Jeudy, and CeeDee Lamb are all off the board when it’s time for the Jets to select at 11. In this week’s “Joe Jet 5”, I consider routes the Jets could potentially take if the players deemed most coveted aren’t available.
