ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:50 PM) Well that definitely opens the door for CJ Spiller to the JETS now that the Jills got Shady
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:12 AM) Spiller is a joke. 99 % of the time he gets tackled for a loss or a 1 or 2 yard gain maximum. He breaks a run here and there. he had one good year in his whole career. their is a reason he is a backup and not the starter. I suggest you guys that believe Spiller has anything to offer go through the play by play game logs. I did and he is horrendous.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:14 AM) Spiller cannot break a tackle period. I broke down last years game logs of his runs in a thread last year. He isn't even a pass catching rb. Fred Jackson catches most of the running back passes.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:20 AM) Unless Spiller comes tremendously cheap no thank you. Wouldn't pay more than a one year deal worth 1 million at most. All he has is speed. Not even on Sproles level. His stats are inflated. For instance he has 10 runs in a game and 9 of them are losses are or 1-2 yard runs. Then he breaks one on the outside for 40-70 yards. Not reliable at all. Even when he break one he is guaranteed a td
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:21 AM) Even in his 1200 yard rushing year he only had 6 tds rushing and 2 receiving
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:23 AM) Spiller is only valuable as a special teams player. Period By year 2010 ) tds rshng 1 rcvng 283 yards rshng
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:31 AM) meant 0 tds rushing in 2010, 2011 4 tds 561 yards rushing 2tds receiving, 2012 6tds 1244 rushing 2 tds receiving, 2013 2tds 933 yards rushing 0tds receiving, 2014 0tds 300 yards rushing 1td receiving.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:41 AM) His stats look decent on paper but if you actually go through the game logs of his career like I did his stats are extremely inflated. For instance one game last year he had 10 attempts for 8 yards another 4 attempts for -4 yards, another 6 attempts for 19 yards, another 10 attempts for 25 yards.Another game he had 12 games for 69 yards but 47 of it was on one play. Point is he sucks as a running back. Who wants a rb that gets stopped 99% of the time and breaks one play fir a long run. We need reliable backs not a slim chance of him breaking one

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.

. 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.
