2020 Senior Bowl Preview – Defense

Clayton Smarslok with a defensive preview for this week’s Senior Bowl

You now have a few names to get familiar with on the offensive side of the ball from part one of this series. But we cannot forget about the defensive side with the lack of talent at two major positions; edge rusher and cornerback. With only a few days left before the Senior Bowl week starts, here are a few guys that could spark some interest out of the Jets brass for April’s draft.


Clay’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 7

Clayton Smarslok’s CFB Week 7 Cheat Sheet…

This is it, the Saturday of all Saturdays in the college football regular season. We are officially about halfway through the year and we are granted an abundance of amazing matchups all day long. There are four top-25 games and another one that barely misses that description. At all times of the day you will have good football to watch which is all anybody wants on a Saturday. When you get games like these, you also get players that put their names out there on a national stage as scouts want to see production against top competition. The only thing you have to do now is to read the rest of the cheat sheet, kick back, relax and hope that these games don’t disappoint.

Clay’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 5

Clayton Smarslok with his week 5 college football cheat sheet

After a week hiatus due to life going on, we are back. No worries though, there will be updates from the last two weeks as well as an outlook for the slate of games this weekend and an updated ranking at the wide receiver position. We are approaching the heart of the in-conference games, meaning we get more rivalry games. When this part of the season comes around, you start to get a better idea of most of the prospects that are eligible for the upcoming draft. Just like the NFL, the rust has definitely worn off by now and should be getting 100% from every player on the field from here on out, it’s just a matter of who can do it consistently. I’m here to do just that for you, enjoy!


2020 First Quarter Mock Draft

Clayton Smarslok with his first quarter of the NFL season 2020 mock draft…

Alas! Mock draft season is upon us! Sure, some may say it is a waste to do a mock draft this early because of everything that can change but people who say that hate fun. This is supposed to be fun for me and you, but also informative for us all to know who is out there and who could be added to your favorite team as the next building block in their hopeful run at a Super Bowl.

As mentioned above, things will change. So do not take this mock draft in early October and rub it in my face when something (or everything) is completely off by the time late April comes around. 

Disclaimer: The draft order is based off the order given on Tankathon.com, using the current record and strength of schedule of every team. 


Clay’s 2020 NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 2

Clayton Smarslok with his week 2 CFB Cheat Sheet…

Guess who’s back! Last year’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet was a big success and a lot of fun, so we are officially back for year number two. We are starting a week late because Hurricane Dorian gave a little bit of a scare and was originally supposed to hit us last Saturday, but the storm is in the past and we move on! (Side note: All of my thoughts and prayers go out to those in the Bahamas and anyone else affected by the storm).


New York Jets – What Is Joe Douglas’ Next Move?

Clayton Smarslok on what the New York Jets next roster move should be

It took a long eight-plus months but Jets football is finally back, new uniforms and all. Thursday night, the Jets took on the New York Giants for the “Snoopy Bowl”, if that’s still even a thing, and went home with the loss. As you can see in the Boss’s reaction to the pre-season opener, there was some good but there was definitely some bad as well.


New York Jets – The Historical Hypothetical

Clayton Smarslok asks what historical New York Jets player would be the biggest help to the current roster…

With this being such a quiet time in football, I figured I would throw a tweet out there just for fun and possibly get a few replies back. Little did I know, people love hypotheticals…


New York Jets Jets 2019 Draft Recap – CS

Clayton Smarslok gives his grades on the New York Jets 2019 NFL Draft class

After waiting so long for the draft, it’s already gone. This offseason was one of the most important in franchise history, having to build the roster around their quarterback who is now entering his second year. The draft usually just fills up the last few holes the front office and staff want filled up and with their five selections, it looks like they did the best they could with what they had.

Now we enter the worst three to four months as a football fan, just looking forward to opening weekend of the 2019 season. Before we do that, let us review who was added to the team these last few days to help the team reach their ultimate goal of finally making the playoffs after a long hiatus.


Final 2019 1st Round Mock Draft (CS)

Clayton Smarslok with his final full first round 2019 NFL mock draft

Draft Day is finally upon us. It’s been a long road, especially for us Jets fans, but it’s bittersweet that it’s coming to an end. After doing a few different versions over the last few months I thought it would be best to finish it how it started, full first round, no trades allowed. Trades are impossible to predict and because the draft is hard to predict as well, there’s no need to make it more difficult.

In the past what I have done was do a mixture of what I would do and what I thought would happen but not this time around. There are so many different rumors out there around the league so this is my chance to distinguish what I think is real and what is fake. With that being said, this is what I think is going to happen and absolutely not what I would do for all 32 selections.


New York Jets 7 Round Mock Draft – #JetsTwitter Edition

Clayton Smarslok polled #JetsTwitter for a 7 round mock draft for the New York Jets

As a whole, the TOJ crew have done quite a few mock drafts throughout the course of draft season. However, nothing ever seems to be the “correct” version according to Jets Twitter. So here I am, a man of the people, giving you guys what you want. Using the draft simulator from The Draft Network, I took the four players I would consider or thought the Jets would for each pick and threw them on a poll on my Twitter feed for you all to answer. This isn’t necessarily how I would have answered for each pick so you should not get mad at me if you don’t agree, I still fully intend on it.
