How frequently is a top three pick one of the three best pros from his Draft class?

How frequently is a top three pick one of the three best pros from his Draft class?

The Jets will have a decision to make in a little under a week. They will have to decide whether they want to keep the third overall pick or trade down to stockpile more selections. Many factors will determine what their ultimate decision, most importantly what they are offered for the pick. To make a good decision, the team will have to understand the true value of the third pick. Throughout Draft season I have encountered a mindset in the Jets fanbase that I believe is mistaken. There seems to be a widely held perception that staying with the third overall pick virtually guarantees the...

Jets Draft Countdown: 6 days to go

Jets Draft Countdown: 6 days to go

It’s April 19th, meaning there are only six days to go until the 2019 NFL Draft kicks off in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. As we count down the days until the Jets prepare for their fifth draft under Mike Maccagnan, I thought it would be fun to climb up the ladder of the best Jets draft picks of the 21st century. Each day until the fateful morning of the 25th, I’ll name off one of the top eleven most productive Jets selections of the millennium. How did I rank them, you might ask? Good question! I stacked them up according to their scores as calculated by my genius formula —...

Jets podcast: Draft room considerations

Jets podcast: Draft room considerations

It is finally almost here. The 2019 NFL Draft starts in six days. Whether the Jets keep the third pick or trade down, the team’s eventual pick will likely be viewed as either filling a need or the best player available (ideally both). This is how these picks tend to be evaluated. For a long time I have felt like this thinking was too simplistic. I think there are considerations that go beyond these two concepts. In addition, I think there are complex elements that go into what constitutes the best player available and a team’s most pressing need. Are we talking about the best player...

Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, Jet Fans! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. After the massive influx of articles from the schedule’s being released, things have unsurprisingly died down. There really isn’t much other than draft speculation and recycled variations of previous articles. But one positive to take away is at least the NFL draft is going to be coming soon. With that being said here are your links to the team this Friday. Darryl Slater - NFL schedule 2019: 9 intriguing storylines for Jets’ season, including Browns’...

Jets mailbag: Is it extension time if Jamal Adams has another great season?

Jets mailbag: Is it extension time if Jamal Adams has another great season?

One week from today is the start of the 2019 NFL Draft. To celebrate this milestone, today we have a podcast mailbag. Thanks once again to everybody who submitted questions for the show. It isn’t an exaggeration to say we couldn’t do it without you. How would one do a mailbag show without mailbag questions? Apologies if your question went unanswered. Today we look at how much of an advantage the Jets’ light travel schedule will be in 2019, whether the cost of giving up a Draft pick AND giving a big contract for somebody like like Frank Clark is too steep, whether the Jets are a...

Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jetsur daily links to the NFL’ Good morning, Jet fans! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. The NFL released the 32 team schedule for the year, and as expected that drew a plethora of writers to come out and provide their expert analysis and insight on the games. I don’t care much for schedules as I do the actual teams, but to each their own. Gase, Mosley, and some other newcomers have expressed that their interest in joining the Jets was to stop the Patriots. At this point it’s just words, and allowing such dominance...

The NFL officially announced the release of its schedule tonight. The Jets’ schedule leaked earlier in the day, but we now know for sure the dates and times the team will play its games. 144 days. Can't wait.#TakeFlight → https://t.co/rxJ1DzztEI pic.twitter.com/G4Ts3QLoQR— #TakeFlight (@nyjets) April 18, 2019 What I like about the schedule: We already knew this going in, but the Jets will have very limited travel to do this year. The team will not have to leave the Eastern Time Zone in the regular season. This was the perfect storm of getting games against the AFC North and NFC...

Jets podcast: Players who might impact Draft strategy

We are now approaching the one week mark in the countdown to the 2019 NFL Draft. The Jets and the rest of the NFL will be on the clock soon. Sometimes the Draft offers us a window to a team’s views on its current players. Two years ago many believed the Jets would give the disappointing Calvin Pryor one more chance. That didn’t happen, however, as the team used its first two picks on Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Pryor was traded before the start of the next season. The Jets’ feelings on him clearly played into the team’s Draft strategy. On today’s podcast we discuss some of the...

Our very own Le’Veon Bell has done a good job staying in headlines, as he apparently irked Malik Jackson with an Instagram post. (Ah, the days of Twitter fingers and computer rage). He also performed at an Atlantic City club, where he extensively shouted out the New York Jets, his new team. All normal in a normal day in the life of Mr. Bell. The NFL is releasing the 2019 schedule tonight at 8 pm, so we will finally see the opponent order, which intrigues me...
