Thursday, April 9th, 2020

Kristian Dyer 2 hours ago There is one name that NFL executive Marc Ross would like to see the New York Jets select in the first round of the NFL Draft. It is a player he believes will be there at No. and is the best left tackle in the draft.

They have the No. pick in the first round and their second-round pick is No. overall.

Chad Pennington: Jets Could Take Wide Receiver By Committee Approach

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

In addition to fortifying the offensive line in front of Sam Darnold, Douglas replaced playmaking receiver Robby Anderson with another explosive target in former first-round pick Breshad Perriman. "He has the talent otherwise he would not have been a first-round draft pick. He really started to find his ways with Byron (Leftwich) and the Buccaneers last year, was able to step in and have some great success there with the injuries that they faced with their wide receiver core," Pennington said of...

Jets Mailbag: Explosive WRs Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb would be perfect for Sam Darnold

So, it would be reckless to assume that Joe Douglas doesn’t have a high regard for any tackle outside of the projected top four prospects. So, it wouldn’t shock me if the Jets selected a tackle outside of those four guys at No. It also wouldn’t be surprising if the Jets traded down to acquire more premium draft capital.

Former BYU defensive end Corbin Kaufusi explains why he is transferring to Utah

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

Late Tuesday night, Devin Kaufusi posted a GIF on his Twitter account from the ill-fated Star Wars prequel series: an image of Anakin Skywalker turning away from his Jedi roots with a Sith-like glow in his eyes, a tongue-in-cheek precursor of an announcement that would come a day later.

NFL 2020: Geno Smith, Rex Ryan feud, New York Jets, NFL 2020 Draft, free agency news, trade rumours

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

The 2014 Jets are in the news again for all the wrong reasons, and this time Rex Ryan and Geno Smith are going at it. Appearing on ESPN’s “First Take” Wednesday, Ryan boasted he would have been a huge NFL coaching success with multiple Super Bowl titles if he had Tom Brady at quarterback. At the same time, the 57-year-old former Jets coach took an unsolicited shot at Smith, his quarterback from 2013-14, when the Jets went 12-20 to cap a stretch of four straight non-winning seasons that ended wit...

The Big Board: Wirfs Still Among The Top Picks

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

Orr doesn't have Iowa defensive end A.J. Epenesa going in the first round, but others do. "This is the first pick of the draft where I think the team that’s on the clock is in a tricky situation," writes PFF's Sam Monson. "The Chargers can’t (or shouldn’t) love Justin Herbert enough to take him here, and a player like Isaiah Simmons is a touch redundant in their defense.

NFL executive Marc Ross: New York Jets Jets GM Joe Douglas signed ‘solid types’ in free agency

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

So far this offseason, the Jets didn’t pursue (or at least land) the big names in free agency. The likes of left tackle Jack Conklin and cornerback Byron Jones landed elsewhere as the Jets maintained their salary cap discipline. The philosophy was clear from general manager Joe Douglas from the onset that he was going to address multiple needs and not blow the entire cap picture on one or two big names.

New York Jets NFL Draft Preview: Left Tackle Remains a Priority

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

None more so than offensive tackle. Last year, the Jets offensive line struggled and was among the worst raked in the NFL last season by Football Outsiders. Douglas used free agency to sign four new offensive linemen, to bulk up the position even more (and re-signed Alex Lewis from last year).
