Mock Draft Monday: Post Super Bowl

Clayton Smarslok with a full two round mock for the 2019 NFL Draft

As a Jets fan, the season could have ended in a better way than it did. It wasn’t ideal but after seeing the Patriots win five previous titles, I have learned to live with it and move on from it and that’s exactly what I am doing here. It is officially draft season with the 2018-19 football season completely behind us. With the season coming to an end, it seems like the perfect time to come out with my first two round mock draft of the year.

In this edition it was a mixture of what should happen and predictions of what will happen on the last weekend of April. For instance, because of Jeffery Simmons’ issues in the past, he will not be submitted into this mock draft or any others in the future, even though he will likely find his way into the first round. This one’s for you Jets fans, hope you like it!

Resume Overview: Offensive Line Coach Frank Pollack

Stephen Russo reviews New York Jets offensive line coach Frank Pollack’s resume

Kevin Mawae. Jason Fabini. Randy Thomas. Brandon Moore. Damien Woody. D’Brickashaw Ferguson. Nick Mangold. Whether it be free agency, a high draft pick, or a hit in the mid-rounds, investments like these make teams perennial playoff contenders. As a fanbase, what gave us our “glory years” (now, by “glory years,” please realize that I am referring to a time period where the Jets had a winning record more often than not) as Jets fans from 1997-2010? I would argue that the one constant was that they had consistent offensive line play.

New York Jets Scouting Review – Gregg Williams’ Defense

Joe Blewett with a scouting breakdown of Greg Williams’ defense

When the Jets officially announced Gregg Williams as the team’s new defensive coordinator, you could hear a collective sigh of relief among the faithful devotees of the Green and White. Williams has been coaching in the NFL for nearly THIRTY YEARS (coaching for thirty-six if you count his tenure at Belton High School) as he started in 1990 as a special teams for the Houston Oilers

And the veteran defensive mind has earned his keep everywhere he has been – as an assistant at least – so Jets fans were well within their rights to find solace in the fact that he will be the chief architect of the team’s defense under new head coach Adam Gase.

I mentioned Williams’ success as an assistant, but he did fairly well during his latest foray as a head coach as well. Williams went 5-3 as interim coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2018 following the firing of Hue Jackson, and many believed he had a strong chance to be retained as the team’s permanent head coach.

2019 Senior Bowl Recap: Offense

Clayton Smarslok with a Senior Bowl practice recap for offensive players…

Three days in Alabama, one practice. That’s all that was available with both practices on Wednesday being restricted to media after getting moved to an indoor facility due to a nasty rainstorm. Regardless, being able to watch the one practice plus the information by just being in Mobile, it’s safe to say the trip was still a success.

With this being a site that covers the Jets and all, my time down there was really focused on their positions of need on both sides of the ball. Here’s what I came away with during my time in Mobile for the offense.

New York Jets 7 Round Offseason Mock (V. 2)

Greg Armstrong With His Second 7 Round Offseason Jets Mock…

It’s Friday! Here’s my second 7 round offseason Jets mock with some trades down. As always, this was done with the Fanspeak mock draft simulator so some of the available players didn’t quite fit the rounds they are ultimately going to be taken in but I tried to make it as realistic as possible. If you have any issues, you can direct your hate to me on Twitter.
