Scouting The Draft: Running Back Tre Mason

The New York Jets are expected to have as many as 12 picks in May’s draft, barring any trades. Arguably the two position groups that most expect to not be impacted by the draft are running back and defensive line. However, Mike Goodson’s legal situation is one to be monitored over the next couple of months (as I stated in my ideal off-season, I think he will have to be replaced) so the Jets could be in the market for a change of pace running back to pair with Chris Ivory. We’ll be breaking down the running backs once a week between now and the draft, highlighting if there’s a fit and where the Jets should potentially draft them. You’ll see my grades for the prospects below as well. We begin with Auburn RB Tre Mason…

Dalbin Osorio on why you cannot grade John Idzik’s offseason for the New York Jets yet

You are a New York Jets fan, and you have been for some time. Youare  used to seeing the team suffer heartbreak. Then, Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum came to Florham Park and changed expectations. For once, it was expected that the Jets, behind an “ancient” philosophy of playing great defense and being able to run the ball, would compete for a Super Bowl…coming one win away from the big game back to back years only fueled that excitement.

Who Goes Where? The Ideal New York Jets Offseason (Part One)

Dalbin Osorio with part one of his ideal offseason for the New York Jets

NFL Free Agency, or Christmas as it’s known around the TOJ office, begins March 11th, 2014 at 4:00 PM. We’ve been chronicling the available free agents that the Jets could potentially target all off-season long so far (we only have Safeties left), but now it’s time to focus on the actual holes that the Jets will have to fill. I’ll be outlining the current 53 man roster (including players on IR) with predictions on whether they will be wearing Green and White next season and, if not, where they will end up. If I note that they will be released or traded, the cap savings will be written at in parenthesis (all cap numbers are from Spotrac.com). The second part of this two part series will deal with how I would ideally fill the holes the Jets will need to fill, very similarly to this amazing piece done by Cole Patterson. As always, your comments will be appreciated.
