New York Jets 2019 Draft Watchlist: Volume II, RBs Edition

Connor Rogers with a New York Jets NFL Draft watchlist for 2019, focusing on the running back position…

When the New York Jets gave Isaiah Crowell a modest three year, $12 million deal this offseason, they essentially slapped a band aid on their running back group.

Crowell, who is offered very minimal guaranteed money beyond this season, is a fine player to pair with Bilal Powell in the backfield.

Fine: not spectacular, not poor – just mediocre. With the 29 year old Powell set to hit free agency after this year, the position is a key spot to watch for the 2019 offseason as the unit could undergo a makeover.

With that note, the college football season and running back draft class will be a vital area to watch this year. Here are a few early names to put the spotlight on for your watchlist.

Stoic Sam Darnold Is Exactly What New York Jets Needed

Dominic DeAngelo on Sam Darnold’s personality being the perfect fit for the New York Jets

A guest post from Dominic DeAngelo, freelancer at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Send in your guest posts to JoeC@TurnOnTheJets.com…

Oh, I’ve been that guy. The one that wanted to see Mark Sanchez suit up in
the green and white despite his college coach telling him it was too early
to go the one that was rooting for Tim Tebow to get a few shots under center for that cup of coffee he was up in East Rutherford (or down if you factor in
his current Binghamton residence) and yes, I was that same person who
wanted gang green to roll the dice with Johnny Football.

NFL Draft – 2019 Big Board, Version 1.0

Dalbin Osorio with an initial big board for the 2019 NFL Draft…

With the NFL Draft just concluded, we’ll have grades and analysis of the picks and UDFAs over the next few weeks, but it’s also never too late to start to think about 2019 and who the New York Jets could target with their first round pick. I won’t pretend to know where that will land, but I do anticipate that four teams will be looking for quarterbacks next year (Dolphins, Bengals, Saints, and Washington). This will undoubtedly push some talent down to where the Jets can land an impact player even if they’re picking in the mid-teens. Let’s take a look at who the top 32 prospects are to watch as Spring Football kicks off, and who the Jets could target.

New York Jets Draft Notebook: Grading Every Pick

Connor Rogers with grades for each of the New York Jets picks in the 2018 NFL Draft…

What a whirlwind draft week was, especially for the New York Jets. It was hard to imagine a scenario where Sam Darnold tumbled to three, but this is why it’s one of the more unpredictable events in all of sports.

Even without a second round selection, the team found value and remained active in the trade market. While these weren’t all household names, quite a few were favorites amongst the national draft media.

Let’s grade each pick the Jets made this year.
