[size="4"]By [url="http://thejetsblog.com/"]Bassett[/url] on 08. Sep, 2010[/size]

[size="4"][img]http://www.azcentral.com/i/sized/5/9/C/e905/j1000/PHP4A3163433AC95.jpg[/img][/size]

[size="4"]In last week’s Hard Knocks, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan discussed the downside of signing high priced talent like Revis, Brick Mangold and others … that there’s not a lot of money to spend elsewhere in the coming years. So what to do? Are Jets are already heading off the salary cap at the proverbial pass?[/size]

[size="4"]While the team has shrewdly used overvalued (by others) draft picks over the past few years (Jenkins, Edwards, Holmes) to amass talent, the Jets have still done quite well for themselves in their then more limited drafting, like the 2009 class (Sanchez, Greene, Slauson) which now boasts a 100% rate of return on starters.[/size]

[size="4"][/size]

[size="4"]With all the ways that the team has been able to upgrade, the Jets now have more of a luxury to start looking at deeper impact via their drafts with players like Wilson, Conner and Ducasse in this draft class. While these guys aren’t traditional starters right now, it’s not going to be long before at least two of the three are.[/size]

[size="4"]So with the more forward looking strategy, are the Jets trying a new turn by collecting young talents that other teams might have too quickly soured on? Look no further than Cody Brown, Jarron Gilbert & Marcus Dixon (more on him later). The first two players were drafted before the 70th pick of the 2009 draft class, and who are now on the Jets practice squad, while Dixon was an UDFA in ’08.[/size]

[size="4"]As the defensive line has aged, I’ve wanted the Jets to draft some more defensive front seven players in the past few years. Since 2005, the team has only drafted two players who’ve really stayed in the picture: David Harris and Vernon Gholston. Adding Brown & Gilbert, at little cost, comes with a risk .. they could be all-out busts … but also could be great moves for a team that in two years time might not be able to spend big free agent dollars.[/size]

[size="4"][b]Jarron Gilbert
[/b][i]6-5 / 285 / San Jose State / 3rd rd. (68 overall)
[/i][b]Analysis:[/b] Famed YouTube [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXDSPbZ_OUw"]pool jumper-outer[/url], the son of a former NFL player (Daren Gilbert, Saints 85-88), Gilbert led the NCAA as a senior with 22 TFL and 9.5 sacks in 2008. Athletically, Gilbert is a freak: 4.76 40 time, 35.5 vert … not bad for a 6-5 285 pounder. Ryan must see the promise in Gilbert, a player he liked enough to fly to SJ State’s Pro Day to work out during the spring of ’09. It’s no secret that Ryan was looking to get younger on his line this year via the draft (Odrick), but Gilbert could be a very nice project for the Jets. Built to be a pure 4-3 Tackle / 3-4 End in Ryan’s scheme, coupled with his athleticism could be a very nice combination down the road.[/size]

[size="4"]Since being drafted, the Bears have looked for more “impact plays” from him and were disappointed with the results. While a player like Ropati Pitoitua held promise for the Jets this season, it came from a few years of working with him to help him better understand leverage. The same is true for Gilbert, he needs to better understand technique to make an NFL squad, and there’s none better than Ryan’s guys to teach him how to put it together. While it might take some patience … the good news for the Jets? No one else put in a waiver claim on Gilbert, meaning that Gilbert might be a safe option to keep in the squad for the whole year. Even if another team tried to sign him, Gilbert has to sign the deal too, so Rex might be able to convince him that staying with the Jets on the practice squad would be the best thing even if just for a year as he could be a solid contributor in a year or so for this defense.[/size]

[size="4"][b]Cody Brown
[/b][i]6-2 / 244 // UConn / 2nd rd. ’09 (63 overall)
[/i][b]Analysis:[/b] Part of the ’09 NFL Draft busting class (Donald Brown, Darius Butler, Will Beatty) from UConn, Brown was a second rounder who was a work in progress, but who had tons of upside and who went to the Cardinals at the end of the second round. As a junior, Brown had 16.5 TFL and 7.5 sacks. A solid athlete, Brown tested well but did have a disappointing Combine 40-time of 4.84 and rebounded during his Pro Day (4.60). During his draft process, he was mentioned alongside names like Clint Sintim, Brian Cushing, and Tyrone McKenzie. A converted DE, Brown plays bigger than his size and looks to be a possible 3-4 rush linebacker (Rush End) or maybe an ILB for the Jets if they don’t like him there. Brown has solid pass rush and run defense skills which would make one assume that if they could work on his tackling in space and coverage skills, they would try him out as an outside linebacker first because he plays above his size, but that he might be an insider.[/size]

Oh that's where I know Jarron Gilbert from. No doubt. I hope maybe he can develop into a solid DE.
