Good morning Jets fans. Time for the workouts to begin.
Last year, we found Geno Smith at this very event. The teams are ready. Rex Ryan, John Idzik, and the rest of the Jets’ personnel team are set to interview, time, and watch a whole bunch of NFL prospects put on their best faces and play, in the hopes of earning the right to be drafted this May.
Today’s workout includes offensive linemen, kickers and tight ends.
You can catch the coverage on the NFL Network (check your local listings) from 9:00 AM-8:00 PM. There will be replays on from 9:00 PM-2:00 AM Sunday morning. The live coverage will also be available via live stream on NFL.com.
For the Jets, it’s an important day since it is the day of the tight ends. It is pretty clear that the Jets will be targeting this position, so there are definitely players to watch today. You know the names, Eric Ebron from UNC, and Jace Amaro from Texas Tech.
Those are the big names, but as Craig Hoffman brilliantly talked about yesterday, an interesting choice to watch is Troy Niklas from Notre Dame. Another is a guy that Mike Mayock ranks second at the position, actually ahead of Jace Amaro, Austin Seferian-Jenkins from the University of Washington.
The performance of these and other players will be interesting to watch today, and we will have analysis as the weekend rolls along.
Don’t just watch for their results in the 40 yard dash, as there are other drills that are more game relevant, such as the 3 cone drill and the broad jump.
Enjoy the day everyone.
