In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he broke down his thoughts about a new mock draft done by both Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay. Kiper has the Jets going quarterback while McShay has them going safety with their No. 6 overall pick. The Jets shouldn’t waste a top-ten pick on yet another quarterback since they have other positions to address besides that in the first round. Sure, it would be good to draft another quarterback, but not at No. 6. Perhaps in the middle to later rounds of this year’s draft but in the grand scheme of things, they should address their defensive secondary first and foremost.

In an article written by Randy Lange of the New York Jets, he wrote about all the important offseason dates that await Gang Green. It’s a great read and excellent for those that want to fill out their calendars so they don’t forget all the different phases of the offseason.
In an article written by Stephen Smith of NFL Spin Zone, he dishes out grades for every free agent signing the Jets made. Needless to say, a lot of “C” grades were given out since the Jets didn’t really go on a spending spree or made any blockbuster moves. For a team rebuilding, it’s important to save money now to spend later on. Besides, the focus as with any rebuild is almost always on building through the draft.
Finally, in an article written by John B of Gang Green Nation, he breaks down the latest salary cap numbers of the Jets. They don’t have much money to play with, especially with upcoming signings once their draft is in the books. It wouldn’t be out of the question for the Jets to clear additional cap space by making more cuts and/or trading players. Defensive end Sheldon Richardson immediately comes to mind since it’s best the Jets trade him now for something rather than get nothing later on.
