New York Jets 2015 1st round selection Leonard Williams has had a mostly positive tenure with the team so far. However, there has been discussion regarding Williams’ production the last few seasons. It’s arguable that he hasn’t played up to the standards of his 6th overall selection. Let’s examine how his play stacks up to his peers and why this year is the time for him to take the next step.

New York Jets – Develop Sam Darnold By Playing Sam Darnold

Joe Caporoso on why the New York Jets should not be hesitant about playing Sam Darnold in 2018

It is common in sports to regurgitate a talking point that has frequently been used over a prolonged period of time. Sometimes certain truths hold but sometimes they become antiquated as a sport evolves. It is comfortable to rely on assumed “conventional thinking.” As this pertains to the New York Jets 2018 quarterback situation, it so easy to say the following it practically rolls off your tongue:

Sam Darnold is only 20 years old and has the perfect bridge and mentor quarterback to learn behind in Josh McCown. The Jets should not rush Darnold and ruin him, like they have previously ruined Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez by playing them prematurely. This city and media market will eat him up if he has any early struggles. Let Darnold sit on the bench for a year and learn behind McCown before potentially taking over in 2019…

It sounds good but it is incorrect. The New York Jets should have the mindset that their rookie quarterback, Sam Darnold, will be their starting quarterback in 2018 and should not shy away from believing this is the best possible thing for their franchise in the coming years.

Stoic Sam Darnold Is Exactly What New York Jets Needed

Dominic DeAngelo on Sam Darnold’s personality being the perfect fit for the New York Jets

A guest post from Dominic DeAngelo, freelancer at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Send in your guest posts to JoeC@TurnOnTheJets.com…

Oh, I’ve been that guy. The one that wanted to see Mark Sanchez suit up in
the green and white despite his college coach telling him it was too early
to go the one that was rooting for Tim Tebow to get a few shots under center for that cup of coffee he was up in East Rutherford (or down if you factor in
his current Binghamton residence) and yes, I was that same person who
wanted gang green to roll the dice with Johnny Football.

NFL Draft – 2019 Big Board, Version 1.0

Dalbin Osorio with an initial big board for the 2019 NFL Draft…

With the NFL Draft just concluded, we’ll have grades and analysis of the picks and UDFAs over the next few weeks, but it’s also never too late to start to think about 2019 and who the New York Jets could target with their first round pick. I won’t pretend to know where that will land, but I do anticipate that four teams will be looking for quarterbacks next year (Dolphins, Bengals, Saints, and Washington). This will undoubtedly push some talent down to where the Jets can land an impact player even if they’re picking in the mid-teens. Let’s take a look at who the top 32 prospects are to watch as Spring Football kicks off, and who the Jets could target.

New York Jets Draft Notebook: Grading Every Pick

Connor Rogers with grades for each of the New York Jets picks in the 2018 NFL Draft…

What a whirlwind draft week was, especially for the New York Jets. It was hard to imagine a scenario where Sam Darnold tumbled to three, but this is why it’s one of the more unpredictable events in all of sports.

Even without a second round selection, the team found value and remained active in the trade market. While these weren’t all household names, quite a few were favorites amongst the national draft media.

Let’s grade each pick the Jets made this year.
