TOJ Pick Six: NFL Draft Offensive Sleepers for the New York Jets

We are now six days away from the NFL Draft and the New York Jets are wrapping up their pre-draft virtual visits and have probably identified their “get by any means” prospects and their “run the hell away” prospects. Before I transition to giving you my top 6 rankings for the defensive side of the ball, I wanted to give you my top 6 sleepers on the offensive side of the ball.

TOJ Pick Six: NFL Draft Interior Offensive Linemen for the New York Jets

DA ranks his top 6 IOL!

We are now nine days away from the NFL Draft and, as word continues to trickle out that the Jets have zeroed in on BYU QB Zach Wilson, it is absolutely imperative that they do not wait until year three to address OL in the NFL Draft like they did for now-Panthers QB Sam Darnold. As it currently stands, the New York Jets do not have a starting-caliber guard on the roster. Greg Van Roten and Alex Lewis were awful, and they let their best guard (Pat Elflein) go in free agency. The 2nd wave of free agency, set to begin after the draft, has some intriguing names that the Jets could add but DraftSZN’s James Kuntz has been banging the “this team will be built through the draft” long before free agency began and I have come around to that after evidence pointed to exactly that. One small note:

OL: can play all 5 positions
IOL: can play guard or center
OT: can play LT or RT
OG: can only play guard

Here are the top 6 rankings for the interior offensive line prospects in the NFL Draft, of which the Jets should make sure to add two if they do not tackle the position with one of the six I mentioned in yesterday’s article.

1. USC OT/OG Alijah Vera-Tucker
Overall Ranking: 9th
Grade: First
Wow: the athleticism and agility you want to see from the heir apparent to the Quentin Nelson throne of guards, Vera-Tucker has excellent mobility and a really good anchor. He can play LT, and play it very well, but I think he’s got insane guard potential. He does an excellent job of getting to the 2nd level of a defense and he comes off the snap ridiculously hard.
Worry: None.

2. Ohio State OG Wyatt Davis
Overall Ranking: 24th
Grade: Late 1st
Wow: a plug-and-play right guard at the next level, Wyatt Davis’s 2019 film showed an NFL-ready player whereas 2020 still showed flashes of that with some hiccups. He has great vision and a good first move to ward off pass rushers.
Worry: that the Davis we get is the Davis from 2020, who played a little out of control (likely due to injury)

3. Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey
Overall Ranking: 32nd
Grade: Late 1st
Wow: best Center in this class, but Humphrey can also slot right into a guard spot because of his intelligence and his strong anchor.
Worry: short arms and some timidness when engaging defenders.

4. Ohio State C Josh Myers
Overall Ranking: 39th
Grade: 2nd
Wow: raw power and a strong anchor that prevents him from getting knocked back by defenders.
Worry: not the best lateral mobility.

5. Alabama IOL Landon Dickerson
Overall Ranking: 48th
Grade: Mid 2nd
Wow: explosive off the snap with a pretty good burst, and just absolutely violent hands.
Worry: a torn right ACL, ankle surgery, ankle injury, and ligament damage in his left knee

6. Tennessee OG Trey Smith
Overall Ranking: 67th
Grade: 3rd
Wow: a mauler at guard who has one mission and one mission only: obliterate the guy across from him. Smith has exceptional power and a strong base that prevents him from getting pushed back.
Worry: has tight hips and had blood clots in his lungs

TOJ Pick Six: NFL Draft’s Offensive Tackles for the New York Jets

DA Osorio Ranks his Top 6 Offensive Tackles in the 2021 NFL Draft.

With 9 days until the NFL Draft, we continue my pick six with the offensive tackles. We went through the pass catchers yesterday: today it’s tackles, then with interior offensive line, interior defensive line, edge, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties following. If you’re new to our draft coverage, the way these rankings work is I will give you:
-my top 6 at each position with stats
-my round grade
-their overall ranking on my big board
-something that wows and worries me about each prospect.

Mehki Becton and Connor McGovern are locked in as starters on the OL, while George Fant seems to be locked in at the RT position. The Jets do not have a capable starter on the interior, and Joe Douglas’s refusal to even call Corey Linsley and then allowing himself to get outbid for Joe Thuney either means he is confident in Greg Van Roten and Alex Lewis or he is planning to address these holes in the draft. This doesn’t mean he should ignore tackle completely, especially when you consider that Fant’s contract has only $1M in dead money and can save the Jets almost $10M if he’s released next year. This class has some good tackles that can start out inside before kicking out to RT if/when Fant is released. If you need more info about each prospect, make sure to subscribe to Badlands to read Connor’s excellent Draft Guide.

Let’s take this pick six back to the future.

1. Northwestern OT Rashawn Slater
Overall Ranking: 6th
Round Grade: 1st
Wow: allowed 5 pressures over 355 dropbacks, a rate of 1 pressure every 71 snaps. That would’ve been tops in the league, which is where I think Slater will be at the next level. Slater has the potential to be an All-Pro guard, tackle, or center in the NFL and his strength and footwork and where he already is (he’s already good enough to start on an NFL offensive line and actually be good) make him the best tackle in this class for me. For evidence, see what he did to Chase Young in 2019.
Worry: hasn’t played football in a year.

2. Virginia Tech OT Christian Darrisaw
Overall Ranking: 10th
Round Grade: 1st
Wow: did not allow a single sack or hit all year, and only allowed six pressures. Darrisaw improved every year in Blacksburg and reminds me a lot of former Jets great D’Brickashaw Ferguson. The former Hokie is strong, athletic, and can play both tackle positions really well. I think Darrisaw can, also, play inside and be dominant from either guard position.
Worry: his feet aren’t the most consistent when matched up versus speedier edges.

3. Oregon OT Penei Sewell
Overall Ranking: 18th
Round Grade: Mid-1st
Wow: still incredibly raw for a player that was as good as he was at 19 years old, it is scary to think what Sewell’s ceiling is. He has excellent hands, and was PFF’s highest graded collegiate tackle ever. Just an absolute violent blocker in the run game, Sewell has the potential to develop into a franchise LT.
Worry: does not have the best technique and may be better long-term at OG.

4. Oklahoma OT Tevin Jenkins
Overall Ranking: 22nd
Round Grade: Late-First
Wow: 11 pressures in 623 snaps over two seasons, an absurd rate when you consider how many one-on-one matchups left tackles generally face. Has a violent punch to thwart off pass rushers, and loves to dominate the competition.
Worry: his lack of athleticism.

5. Notre Dame OT Liam Eichenberg
Overall Ranking: 23
Round Grade: Late-First
Wow: as NFL-ready a prospect as you’ll find in this class who I originally thought should transition to guard but really think he’d be an excellent right tackle at the next level. Eichenberg has sound fundamentals and really could find a lot of success wherever he is drafted.
Worry: better run blocker than pass protector at this point in his career.

6. North Dakota State OT Dillon Radunz
Overall Ranking: 33
Round Grade: 2nd
Wow: really good agility and a really good run blocker, Trey Lance’s blindside was thoroughly protected by Radunz. He has experience in a pro-style offense so his transition to the NFL won’t be as difficult as other prospects.
Worry: wondering if he will remain as agile if he’s asked to put on weight.

TOJ Pick Six: NFL Draft Pass Catchers for the New York Jets

Dalbin Osorio gives his top 5 pass catchers in the 2021 NFL Draft.

With 10 days until the NFL Draft, we continue my pick six with the pass catchers of this class. We went through RBs yesterday: today it’s wide receivers and tight ends, with guards, tackles, centers, interior defensive linemen, edge, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties following. If you’re new to our draft coverage, the way these rankings work is I will give you:

TOJ Pick Six: NFL Draft Running Backs for the New York Jets

Dalbin Osorio ranks his top 6 RBs in the 2021 NFL Draft.

With 11 days until the NFL Draft, we continue my pick six with the best ball carriers of this class. We went through quarterbacks yesterday: today it’s running backs, and then we’ll go to wide receivers, guards, tackles, centers, interior defensive linemen, edge, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties. The way these rankings work is I will give you my top 6 at each position, with stats, my round grade, their overall ranking on my big board, and something that wows and worries me about each prospect. With the Jets not having a capable starter in the running back room, I think it’d be smart for them to add a bellcow. There’s been a lot of talk about their offense mirroring San Francisco’s, but I still believe we’ll see Green Bay Packer principles, and they have a primary back in the underrated Aaron Jones to carry the load. The Jets, also, reportedly checked in on Chris Carson during free agency so they could be in the market for one of the bigger-name backs in the draft.

Let’s dig right in, shall we?

1. Clemson RB Travis Etienne
Overall Ranking: 21
Round Grade: 1st
Stats: 914 rushing yards, 5.4 YPC, 14 rushing TDs, 48 REC, 588 yards
Wow: the best feet in the class, Etienne possesses the big play ability from the running back position that you want to see from a featured back. He’s an excellent receiver out of the backfield, shows good balance even when defenders square up, and he turns his hips and gets up field quickly. Etienne, at a young age, has already mastered the ability to not try and do too much as a ball carrier.
Worry: Etienne has struggled a bit with pass protection, though it has improved, and he enters the NFL with a lot of carries.

2. Alabama RB Najee Harris
Overall Ranking: 29
Round Grade: 1st
Stats: 1466 rushing yards, 5.8 YPC, 26 rushing TDs, 43 REC, 425 yards
Wow: a three-down back in the Derrick Henry mold, Harris is a violent runner who hits holes decisively. He shows above average skills as a pass catcher and his ability to withstand contact and barrel through defenders makes him a dangerous weapon at the next level.
Worry: he doesn’t change direction like Etienne and his hips are a little stiff.

3. North Carolina RB Javonte Williams
Overall Ranking: 47
Round Grade: Mid-2nd
Stats: 1140 rushing yards, 7.3 YPC, 22 total TDs
Wow: Williams is an explosive runner who has a good mix of speed and power and a Leveon Bell-like knack for setting up his next move. He keeps his feet moving regardless of if he’s being bottled up by defenders, and he is the best pass blocking running back in this class.
Worry: is not as explosive as Etienne, with a running style closer to Harris, and he showed a tendency to work towards the sideline more than i’d like.

4. North Carolina RB Michael Carter
Overall Ranking: 53
Round Grade: Late-2nd
Stats: 1245 rushing yards, 8.0 YPC, 11 Total TDs
Wow: the other Tar Heel running back in this class possesses excellent vision and displays both patience and decisiveness, which lends itself to Carter being a complete back that should be productive in the NFL. He offers more juice than Williams in the open field.
Worry: doesn’t offer anywhere near as much power as Williams, and is nowhere near the pass blocker he is.

5. Memphis RB Kenneth Gainwell
Overall Ranking: 64
Round Grade: 2nd/3rd
Stats: 1459 rushing yards, 6.3 YPC, 51 REC, 610 yards, 3 TDs
Wow: the former Memphis Tiger is the best pass catcher in this running back class, and he possesses great vision in the open field. Gainwell is agile and extremely quick and very shifty with the ball.
Worry: played primarily out of a spread offense at Memphis and only has one year of experience as a RB.

6. Oregon State RB Jermar Jefferson
Overall Ranking: 100
Round Grade: 4th
Stats: 858 rushing yards, 6.5 YPC, 7 TDs (6 games)
Wow: Jefferson is one of my favorite prospects in this running back class as he has really good footwork and is able to maintain his balance even when squared up on. He is a home run threat out of the backfield.
Worry: not sure he could ever be a feature back at the next level.

TOJ Pick Six: Quarterbacks In The NFL Draft

DA provides his QB rankings for the 2021 NFL Draft.

With 12 days until the NFL Draft, now feels like the best time to drop my pick six for each position in the draft. We will go through quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, guards, tackles, centers, interior defensive linemen, edge, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties. Today, we begin with the signal callers, where there has been a lot of discussion considering the Jets currently hold the second overall pick in a draft with multiple quality QB prospects. The way these rankings work is I will give you my top 6 at each position, with stats, my grade, and their overall ranking on my big board, and something that wows and worries me about each prospect.

Let’s dig right in, shall we?

1. Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence
Overall Ranking: 1
Round Grade: First
Stats: 69.2%, 3153 yards, 24 TDs, 5 INTs
Wow: when Vince Vaughn says in Wedding Crashers that he can put the ball wherever he wants and he can make it rain out there, he was talking about Trevor Lawrence. There isn’t a throw Lawrence can’t make, as he displays elite ball placement ability at every level.
Worry: shoulder surgery a month ago, despite it being his non-throwing arm, could be worrisome if he takes too many hits behind a suspect offensive line.

2. Ohio State QB Justin Fields
Overall Ranking: 2
Round Grade: First
Stats: 70.2%, 2100 yards, 22 TDs, 6 INTs, 383 rushing yards, 5 rushing TDs
Wow: Justin Fields is the amalgamation of Michael Vick and Lamar Jackson in terms of athleticism, with the quarterbacking of Donovan McNabb mixed in. His ability to throw on the run to every level, and to put the ball where only his receiver can get it, are evidence of a confident QB.
Worry: he is almost too patient with the ball and, while some of that is because of the lengthy routes his receivers ran, he’s going to have to become more decisive with the ball.

3. North Dakota State QB Trey Lance
Overall Ranking: 7
Round Grade: First
Stats: 66.9%, 2786 yards, 28 TDs, 0 INTs, 1100 rushing yards, 14 rushing TDs (2019)
Wow: Trey Lance already has developed a knack for not panicking under pressure, which is something you hope young QBs developed. He went almost 300 attempts without throwing an interception and displayed good accuracy in the short game.
Worry: showed a tendency to lock on to his first read, and he has to become more accurate downfield.

4. BYU QB Zach Wilson
Overall Ranking: 11
Round Grade: First
Stats: 73.5%, 3692 yards, 33 TDs, 3 INTs, 10 rushing TDs
Wow: Wilson has more Matt Stafford than Sam Darnold in his game, especially when it comes to the arm angles and unreal deep-ball ability. He displays a quick internal clock already, and is decisive about where he wants to go with the ball.
Worry: a torn labrum and thumb injury on his throwing arm is worrying, but even more worrisome is his inability to anticipate the pass rush: in a few games I watched, he’d turn into pressure at an alarming rate.

5. Georgia QB Jamie Newman
Overall Ranking: 51
Round Grade: Mid-2nd
Stats: 60.9%, 2868 yards, 26 TDs, 11 INTs, 6 rushing TDs (2019)
Wow: 2019 showed a QB that stands tall in the pocket and does not rattle easily when pressure is around him. Newman gets the ball out quickly, and he throws darts out there. A much stronger arm than some of the guys that will go ahead of him.
Worry: Newman’s footwork could stand to improve, and he has to learn to use more touch on his throws.

6. Alabama QB Mac Jones
Overall Ranking: 63
Round Grade: Third
Stats: 77.4%, 4500 yards, 41 TDs, 4 INTs
Wow: Big Mac Jones’s accuracy is his best trait, in my opinion, as he very rarely misses wide receivers. He’s a smart QB, which helps him make up for some of his limited physical traits. Jones does a decent job of moving in and around pressure and rarely panics when the pass rush is barreling down on him.
Worry: his lack of mobility is concerning, as there won’t be many instances of him winning off-platform, and him being limited to only winning in structure makes him very different from the five QBs I have ranked ahead of him. He, also, doesn’t have a strong arm.

DA’s New York Jets Post-Week One Free Agency Mock Draft

DA Osorio provides his post-week 1 of Free Agency mock draft!

Free agency’s first week is just about finished, and the New York Jets have added some really nice pieces at areas of need. EDGE Carl Lawson is the big prize of the offseason, with WR Corey Davis coming in second for his ability to give the Jets a high-upside Wide Receiver on a team that really needed more young playmakers. They still have no starting-worthy players at corner or OLB, and that’s before we get to an offense that can lay claim to the same distinction at guard, running back, and arguably tight end. Before we jump into the mock draft, there are six free agents still available that I think the Jets should add so they don’t have to try and fill every hole in the draft:

OG Trai Turner: 5 Pro Bowls before the age of 27, had a down-year last year due to injury but could be a good value add up front.

EDGE Jadeveon Clowney: scored pressures on 10.9% of his pass rush, would be a good swing at OLB as he is still a very good run stopper and could generate pressure when the Jets go to a 5-2-4 look.


WR Ty Hilton: still a capable veteran with crafty route running and solid hands who could allow for the Jets to move on from an expensive Jamison Crowder


DT Sheldon Rankins: With Williams most likely playing the 3-technique DT role and the newly-acquired Lawson playing the Wide 9 DE role, the 4-3 NT role is up for grabs given my belief that John Franklyn Myers and Foley Fatukasi will compete for the other DE position in the base defense. Rankins would be a nice addition to fill that role.


CB Mackenzie Alexander: The 27 year old has played in the slot and outside, and would give Saleh a starting-caliber corner on a roster that currently has none.


CB Adoree Jackson: An athletically gifted corner who can thrive in predomininatly zone scheme, Jackson is a much needed addition in this CB room.

For the purpose of this, lets say the Jets sign the six above before entering the NFL Draft. The depth chart would look as follows:

QB: Sam Darnold, James Morgan
RB: Lamical Perine, Ty Johnson, Josh Adams
WR: Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, TY Hilton, Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole, Braxton Berrios, Vyncent Smith
TE: Chris Herndon, Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco
OT: Mehki Becton, George Fant
OG: Greg Van Roten, Alex Lewis
C: Connor McGovern
DE: Carl Lawson, John Franklyn Myers, Foley Fatukasi
DT: Quinnen Williams, Sheldon Rankins, Nathan Shepherd
ILB: CJ Mosley, Jarrad Davis, Blake Cashman
OLB: Jadeveon Clowney, Bryce Huff
CB: Adoree Jackson, Mackenzie Alexander, Bryce Hall, Javelin Guidry
S: Marcus Maye, Lamarcus Joyner, Ashtyn Davis

Very clearly, the defense is FURTHER ahead than the offense on talent and difference makers. Lets see if I can fix that in the draft. I start the draft with two overdue trades:

Trade WR Jamison Crowder to the Green Bay Packers for a 2021 3rd Rounder
Trade QB Sam Darnold to the Las Vegas Raiders for a 2021 3rd Rounder and a 2022 4th Rounder

Picks Entering the NFL Draft:
R1: 2nd, 23rd
R2: 2nd
R3: 2nd, 16th, 22nd, 28th
R4: 2nd
R5: 2nd, 10th
R6: 2nd
R7: 23rd

Draft:

2nd Pick: Ohio State QB Justin Fields
QB2 on my board, Fields would be the most talented QB the Jets have drafted and would also be the best QB the Jets have drafted him WHEN they drafted him. High upside, good character, and the potential to be a bigger and better Dak Prescott.

23rd Pick: Ohio State OG Wyatt Davis
In the simulator, Florida TE Kyle Pitts was available but because of Joe Douglas’s refusal/inability to improve the IOL on the roster in free agency, I opt for the monster from Ohio State up front. Davis slots in right next to Mehki Becton to give the Jets two young building blocks on the OL.

Trade: The New York Jets trade the 34th pick overall to the Carolina Panthers for the 7th pick in round two and the 9th pick in round 3

39th Pick: Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey
Humphrey is a top 30 player in this class, for me, so getting him at 39 is a steal. He slots right into the starting Center position and Connor McGovern slides over next to George Fant.

66th Pick: Georgia CB Eric Stokes
I’m not as high on Stokes as others, but he is too much value here at 66 to pass up. He is a little grabby in coverage, but getting him here lets him compete for playing time from the beginning of training camp.

73rd Pick: North Carolina RB Javonte Williams
There’s not a RB that could start in the XFL on this roster, so you nab RB3 in Round Three and watch him run behind Becton and Davis for 100+ consistently. Williams does not mess around behind the LOS, and would bring a home run threat to the Jets backfield.

80th Pick: Miami EDGE Quincy Roche
This defense needs more juice off the edge, and the former Hurricane provides that in spades. Roche has good technique, athleticism, and strength. He’s lean, but with this front 4 he and Clowney could bring serious pressure.

86th Pick: North Texas WR Jaelon Darden
Yes, we added Keelan Cole and TY Hilton and Corey Davis to go with Denzel Mims, but the Jets should also add some depth and Darden would absolutely represent the kind of high-upside swing at the position that Douglas should’ve taken in the 4th round last year. Darden can make cornerbacks miss, is deadly in space, and could be developed before taking over in the slot full-time.

92nd Pick: Alabama OG Deonte Brown
A 6’3” 364 pound monster who can sit for a year and then replace McGovern the following year. Now a position of weakness becomes a position of strength as your interior offensive line is Brown, Davis, and Humphrey for the next 10 years.

Trade:
The New York Jets trade the 2nd pick in the 4th round to the Denver Broncos for the 9th pick in the 4th round and a 2022 5th rounder.

Trade:
The New York Jets trade the 9th pick in the 4th round to the Detroit Lions for a 2022 4th Rounder

146th Pick: Georgia LB Monty Rice
A bit undersized for a LB, but with the Jets missing out on Keanu Neal the former Bulldog could fill the role the Jets envisioned for Neal. He has speed, reads the play well, and can go sideline to sideline. He can, also, provide insurance for the returning Mosley while learning under him.

154th Pick: Iowa OT Alaric Jackson
The next Hawkeye in the long line of good Iowa tackles, Jackson is good value for me here because I think he can develop into a starting RT in the league. With Fant coming back for at least one year, Jackson can sit for a year like Deonte Brown before taking over for a released veteran in 2022.

185th Pick: Miami K Jose Borregales
Need a Kicker. Get a Kicker.

249th Pick: Michigan TE Nick Eubanks
Better than Griffin and better than Wesco, Eubanks projects as a move TE/H-Back, and I am very excited about the possibility of the Jets using him as Other LaFleur used Delanie Walker. You need somebody to push the disappointing Herndon, and this accomplishes that.

Depth Chart Post-Draft:

QB: Justin Fields, James Morgan
RB: Javonte Williams, Ty Johnson, Josh Adams, Lamical Perine
WR: Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, TY Hilton, Keelan Cole, Jaelon Darden, Braxton Berrios, Vyncet Smith
TE: Chris Herndon, Nick Eubanks, Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco
OT: Mehki Becton, George Fant, Alaric Jackson
OG: Connor McGovern, Wyatt Davis, Deonte Brown, Dan Feeney
C: Creed Humphrey
DE: Carl Lawson, John Franklyn Myers, Foley Fatukasi
DT: Quinnen Williams, Sheldon Rankins, Nathan Shepherd
ILB: CJ Mosley, Monty Rice, Jarrad Davis, Blake Cashman
OLB: Jadeveon Clowney, Quincy Roche, Bryce Huff
CB: Adoree Jackson, Mackenzie Alexander, Eric Stokes, Bryce Hall, Javelin Guidry
S: Marcus Maye, Lamarcus Joyner, Ashtyn Davis

This is what I’d do if I were the Jets if I want a shot at improving the roster to the point where they are playing meaningful games come December. Adding three more picks in 2024, also, gives you the chance to add even more talent to a team that now has key young contributors that can help your team take that next step in 2022.

TOJ Instant Reaction: The New York Jets Sign WR Corey Davis & EDGE Carl Lawson

DA Osorio provides his take on the Jets’ first day of free agency.

The New York Jets, armed with a treasure trove of cap space, made their first two big splashes in free agency by signing former first round Wide Receiver Corey Davis from and a TOJ favorite going back to his Auburn days in former Bengals EDGE Carl Lawson. The contracts are a 3 year, $37.5M deal with $27 million guaranteed for Davis and a 3 year, $45M with $30M guaranteed for Lawson.
