New York Jets UDFA Profile – DL Dominique Davis

Michael Meegan with a closer look at New York Jets UDFA DL Dominique Davis

With a roster with as many holes as the Jets it is hard to find any position that would not benefit from being upgraded.  As a result of seemingly taking defensive linemen in the first round of every draft the past decade, the team has some quality depth along their defensive line. Joe Douglas waited until after the draft to give Dominique Davis, a DII standout DT from UNC Pembroke a shot as a UDFA…

Joe Douglas was an offensive lineman himself in college and he has worked has made his main priority to fix a unit that was woeful last season. He added OL in free Agency, he added it in the NFL Draft, and he did not stop adding them as the Jets agreed to terms with Jared Hilbers from Washington as a UDFA.

New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – OL Cameron Clark

Joe Belic with a deep dive on New York Jets 4th round pick, OL Cameron Clark

The Jets had some question marks in terms of run blocking going into the draft but addressed the issue with two absolute maulers: Mekhi Becton and Cameron Clark.

Clark, the 129th overall pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft, played left tackle all four seasons for the UNC Charlotte 49ers, but it’s widely believed he’s best suited to play guard at the next level.

One part brain and one part brawn, Clark is the perfect combination of smarts and down-right nastiness; his sheer will to dominate defenders is at the heart of his game.  A natural-born leader, his stacked resume includes Dean’s list, offensive MVP, and team captain.  Extremely durable to boot, Clark started 31 straight games during his collegiate career.

New York Jets UDFA Profile – DB Lamar Jackson

Stephen Russo with a closer look at New York Jets UDFA defensive back Lamar Jackson, from Nebraska

Following the completion of Joe Douglas’ first draft as the New York Jets’ General Manager, he made some noteworthy UDFA signings as well. Among them was Nebraska Cornerback Lamar Jackson (I promise not to make any jokes referencing the League MVP with the same name). Jackson, a 2nd team all Big 10 player in his senior season at Nebraska, has the potential to make some noise in a seemingly wide-open cornerback room.

New York Jets UDFA Profile – DB Javelin Guidry

Michael Meegan with a closer look at New York Jets UDFA Javelin Guidry, a UDFA DB from Utah…

One of the most talked about units in college football last year was the Utah defense. They were one of the best units in college football and had 6 draft picks on that side of the ball in 2020.  Joe Douglas has not been shy about trying to fix the Jets secondary and signed DB Javelin Guidry as a UDFA from Utah to help that cause…

New York Jets UDFA Profile – DB Shyheim Carter

Much like he has with the offensive line, Joe Douglas has been busy overhauling the team’s secondary. Pierre Desir, Quincy Wilson, Bryce Hall, and Ashtyn Davis are just some of the new faces brought into the unit previously known as New Jack City. The Jets will need much improved play from this unit as the Duck Hodges and Matt Barkley’s have been replaced with Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes’ on the schedule in 2020. After that draft, Douglas went to the NFL talent factory that is the University of Alabama and brought in Shyheim Carter as a UDFA to see if he can help this unit.
