Notes from the Senior Bowl

The Senior Bowl took place on Saturday with the South defeating the North 20-10. The South had the better quarterbacks and were able to move the ball more efficiently. More important than who won the game is that these draft prospects put more tape together in game situations against some of the best competition college football has to offer. Here are some notes on how some of these prospects, some more highly touted than others, performed in the game.  Be sure to tweet me or leave comments below and let me know who impressed you in the Senior Bowl and who you think the Jets should target.

Note: I included guys who stood out (Either Negatively or Positively) at potential positions of need for the Jets. I also left out some of the guys who are probably off the radar for the Jets based on their needs and draft slots.

Mike Nolan lists some of the players to keep an eye on in the Senior Bowl that the New York Jets could target on draft day.

After a long week of practices and interviews, the Senior Bowl finally takes place today. This “all-star” game is nothing like the NFL version as there is a lot at stake for the Seniors who were lucky enough to get invited to the game. Although it’s a year dominated by underclassmen, there is still some great talent the Jets organization and fans should be looking at in this game. Here is a list of eight guys on offense and eight guys on defense that we should keep a close eye on.

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 17 (Season Grades)

Frank Giasone grades out the New York Jets defensive line in week 17 and for the entire 2013 season

Sunday’s win over Miami in the 2013 season finale was a good one for Jets’ fans, players and coaches alike, as the offense put together one of its most impressive performances of the season, and the defense held the Dolphins to just seven points–a season best for New York.

And while the performance helped the Jets climb back to .500 in the final week of the season, the struggles up front persisted, as the production from the defensive line continued to deteriorate.

2014 NFL Draft – Tight End or Wide Receiver?

Connor Rogers takes an early look at the Jets options in the draft and free agency at tight end and wide receiver

The New York Jets will be selecting 18th overall in May’s NFL Draft. While many are questioning if the team should make a play for one of the top tier quarterbacks, I will not touch on that approach here. Geno Smith has a long way to go, but no matter who is under center, the offense needs to upgrade the skill positions such as wide receiver and tight end. Let’s set up a scenario: The Jets hang tight with the 18th pick and are on the clock. Here are the details: Continue reading “2014 NFL Draft – Tight End or Wide Receiver?”
