Notes from the Senior Bowl

The Senior Bowl took place on Saturday with the South defeating the North 20-10. The South had the better quarterbacks and were able to move the ball more efficiently. More important than who won the game is that these draft prospects put more tape together in game situations against some of the best competition college football has to offer. Here are some notes on how some of these prospects, some more highly touted than others, performed in the game.  Be sure to tweet me or leave comments below and let me know who impressed you in the Senior Bowl and who you think the Jets should target.

Note: I included guys who stood out (Either Negatively or Positively) at potential positions of need for the Jets. I also left out some of the guys who are probably off the radar for the Jets based on their needs and draft slots.

Senior Bowl Players to Watch – New York Jets

Mike Nolan lists some of the players to keep an eye on in the Senior Bowl that the New York Jets could target on draft day.

After a long week of practices and interviews, the Senior Bowl finally takes place today. This “all-star” game is nothing like the NFL version as there is a lot at stake for the Seniors who were lucky enough to get invited to the game.

Here is a list of eight guys on offense and eight guys on defense that we should keep a close eye on.

NFL Playoff Free Agent Guide – TOJ

Mike Nolan takes a look at some of the 2014 Free Agents that the New York Jets should be scouting in the NFL playoffs.

It’s obvious that the New York Jets have some holes they need to fill if they want to get back to playing football in January. John Idzik has made it clear that his offseason mantra is to use free agency to fill those holes so that the Jets can take the best player available when it comes time to draft. I’m sure most Jets fans will be glued to the TV over the next few weeks despite their team not playing. Here are some potential free agents that the Pro Personnel Staff should be taking a closer look at throughout these playoffs at some positions of need.
