Derrick Jones & Deontay Burnett – Can They Take the Next Step in 2019?

Stephen Russo with a closer look at whether WR Deontay Burnett and CB Derrick Jones can develop into major contributors for the 2019 New York Jets…

Todd Bowles’ tenure with the Jets cannot be described in just one word, but I think the word ‘frustrating’ encompasses the emotion that Jets’ fans feel towards the previous Head Coach. His in-game management and gameday roster decisions were perplexing. The overall stubbornness and unwillingness to change or admit fault was particularly maddening, especially when it came to the personnel decisions late in a lost season. In 2018, while the Jets were clearly struggling and playing meaningless football in late November and December, Bowles still seemed hesitant to give young players a chance.

Two of those players were Derrick Jones and Deontay Burnett, who were unquestionable rising stars among the Couch Coaches of Jets’ Twitter. Even if these two don’t blossom into Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice like many fans expect, one thing is certain: they should be given a chance to earn themselves more playing time than what Bowles’ provided. Allow me to take a closer look at their careers to date to see what we may anticipate from Jones and Burnett as we enter a new year, with new coaches and new systems.

New York Jets – 2019 7 Round Mock Draft (JC 1.0)

Joe Caporoso with a seven round mock draft for the New York Jets (1.0)

With April 1st here, we are deep in Mock Draft SZN. For yours truly, I am going to do a 1.0 and 2.0 version for all of the New York Jets picks and a full first round mock. The 2.0 version of this mock and the full first round mock will both drop shortly before the big night. I will also do a 1.0 version of my predictions for what I believe the Jets front office will do, which will differ from this mock draft (which is my personal preference). Finally, we’ll have our annual round one guide the day of the NFL Draft. Send your complaints to the moon (or to Twitter).

2019 Post Free Agency – 2 Round Mock Draft

Clatyon Smarslok with a 2 round, post free agency mock draft

With April just a couple days away and the draft less than a month, it seems like no better time to put out one last two round mock draft. The draft is always a crapshoot and is literally impossible to predict, especially for us folk that don’t have ties with General Managers and scouts. Either way, I still love writing them and I believe you still love to read them because here you are.

The toughest thing about writing a mock draft is mixing up what you would do and what you’re hearing. For instance, I would not draft a quarterback first overall this year but I would be stupid not to put Kyler Murray there because that’s all we’ve been told for the last month-plus. So this will be exactly that, a mix of the two. This time there will be multiple trades and some noticeable names missing. As always, let me know what you think @CSmarsNFLDraft on Twitter!
