Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today

Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) Jets just announced first 12 players to be released:
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) T. J. Graham, Saalim Hakim, Austin Hill, DeVier Posey, Jonathon Rumph (WRs), Matt LaCosse (TE), James Brewer, Dalton Freeman (OL), Bryan Johnson (LB), Javier Arenas, Curtis Brown, Keith Lewis (DBs)
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:11 AM) A little surprised that Posey is gone in this first batch of moves, but then we did have a glut of WRs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much

We all know the Jets need a coverage safety badly. They needed one last year, and it obviously hurt the team. After getting burned by Reggie Nelson, the Jets are left hurting in the defensive backfield. We don't know whether the Jets wanted to sign both Nelson and Landry, but for now they are left with just Landry and Eric Smith back there. In short, the Jets still need a major upgrade with a safety capable of covering the deep middle and sticking with Tight Ends.

They've about exhausted the options in free agency, so the Jets are almost certain to draft a safety, probably early, in this year's draft. Problem is, this draft is pretty weak for safeties, at least at the top. There are, however, some interesting mid-late rounders who could develop into nice players...

Posted ImageMark Barron - Alabama - 6'-1" 210 - Barron has a solid skill set across the board for a safety prospect. The only thing keeping him from being considered elite is he lacks one standout tool. He isn't a speedster, or a massive enforcer...but, he is plenty fast and plenty big. Barron would be a great fit for the Jets, even with the signing of LaRon Landry, Barron is competent enough to handle the coverage duties of a FS.

Posted ImageHarrison Smith - Notre Dame - 6'-2" 215 - Smith is physically, the picture of the perfect safety. He's a big, tall, strong safety with solid speed. While solid in run support, he has tight hips that limit his coverage ability. He reacts well and takes proper angles though, allowing him to still provide solid zone coverage. The question will be whether he has the man coverage abilities to stick with the Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, and Friends.

Posted ImageDuke Ihenacho - San Jose State - 6'-0" 210 - Duke is an interesting prospect, with a nice combination of size and speed. He is great coming up and supporting the run, and has the athleticism to stick with TE's in coverage. He still needs work on his technique, which can hopefully be cured with better coaching, specifically his footwork and angles. All told, this mid round prospect could turn into quite the steal with a little development.

Posted ImageD'Anton Lynn - Penn State - 6'-0" 206 - You can bet D'Anton, son of Jets RB coach Anthony Lynn will find his way to the Jets roster. A larger corner in college, his average cover skills and decent tackling ability will most likely signal a move to safety at the next level. The Jets have shown a willingness to draft friends and family (see Donovan Warren and Scotty McKnight), and could very well spend a late round pick on Lynn or pick him up as an UDFA.

Posted ImageTony Dye - UCLA - 5'-11" 210 - Dye came into his senior season on many preseason award watch lists, in the eye of draftniks, and looking to make a big impact taking over the lead in a UCLA secondary that just lost Rahim Moore as a 2nd round pick of the Denver Broncos. However, Dye suffered a pinched nerve in his neck and missed 7 games, than returned and suffered a leg injury in his first half back. He is healthy now, and participated in the NFLPA All-Star game and had a good showing at the UCLA Pro Day. Dye had been a SS for the Bruins and led the team in tackles in 2010, however he has the speed and athleticism to be an interchangeable safety, and was expected to take over the FS role in 2011 following Rahim Moore's departure. All told, in my opinion Tony Dye is a great late round pickup and with the chance for a huge upside.

I don't know anything about him but love the idea of a safety roaming the field with the word "die" on his jersey even if it isn't spelled the same lol

. Mark Barron will be a very good pro safety. He is smart and versatile, and can play deep in the middle or in the box. There is no problem with his ability to play in space. He could also play as a “big” nickel in sub packages. He is fast enough (unofficial 4.55 in the 40-yard dash) and has the tools to be a hybrid-type playmaker. He should go in the middle of the first round
.

That is from NFL.com

I think Landry will be a beast if he can stay healthy, big question though. I think getting a safety mid-round is a must at the least. If they don't get Barron round 1. I see them re-signing Jim Leonhard once he gets healthy.

Right now we only have 2 safeties, Landry and Smith. Still want to upgrade over Smith.

I'm going to start doing some of my lower round sleeper write ups this weekend.

Trent Robinson will be the first of them.

Even though it'll be useless. We won't draft any of them, haha.

Markelle Martin...I'm just not personally a very big fan of him. These lists are by no means complete, they are usually just prospects I like.

After signing Landry, we helped shore up the need we had at safety. But we still need an extra body back there (though I'd also like to see Jim Leonhard re-signed once he's recovered from his injury). Safety isn't as desperate a need as it was, but I would be perfectly happy to see us draft Barron round one if he falls to us. Our pass rush is something we have to address though, and if the pick comes down to an OLB or Barron, I'd go with the former. Obviously we don't want to reach, but at #16 you get some flexibility as the board becomes less clear cut.
