Post Draft Thoughts:

“How the Jets landed Jamal Adams is beyond even themselves, but it was a pick they had to make.  He will come in and quickly become the leader of that defense, something that they very much need. They didn’t deviate from their board in the second, when they grabbed another safety in Maye, but they are cleaning house at that position, and safety is increasing in importance in today’s “matchup” league. They doubled up again on a position as they went wide receiver twice, a position that is virtually barren on their roster.”

2018 NFL Draft

The Jets are playing admirably, even to the dismay of many fans hoping for a top pick in next year’s draft. The team has committed to a rebuild, casting off aging players and bad contracts, but somehow is still winning some games. McCown has been Mr. Dependable, and there is a lot of young talent getting plenty of playing time this year.

With all of that said, the Jets need a quarterback, and this is the draft to get one. Even though they won’t be drafting at the very top of the draft, this draft is probably about 4-5 deep at fairly similarly talented QB’s, so they should be able to get their man wherever they draft.

The defense has some good, young talent, and are starting to come together as the rookies are getting a chance to play rather than ride the bench. This decision to get rid of any of their older vets that they could is allowing them to shorten the learning curve, especially at difficult positions to master such as safety.

The offense for the Jets simply need some weapons. They have some good depth at wide receiver, but they need an elite talent both their and at running back. The offensive line could also use some young talent to start developing.
