Enjoy your late afternoon cup of coffee with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Looks like Jon Gruden wants to ensure the Jets don’t waste their time on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Ah yes, it’s the start of a brand new work week. For many, there isn’t enough coffee to help get through a Monday but a few cups throughout the day usually does the trick. As you enjoy your late afternoon cup of coffee, enjoy the latest reading material on the New York Jets from top sources on the internet.

In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he breaks down comments made by Jon Gruden that the Jets shouldn’t reach so high for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky out of North Carolina. Considering the Jets have the No. 6 overall pick, it would be a waste to draft another quarterback when they have so many other areas of need. A top-ten pick almost always produces an instant starter as they’d be wise to use it on a defensive back instead.

In another article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he makes the case that if the Jets draft running back Leonard Fournette, it would only make sense if they plan to feature him as their main offensive attack. They shouldn’t draft him to be groomed for later as he has superstar written all over him. It would have to be where the Jets would shift to mostly a rushing attack to get the job done on offense and build a playbook completely around him. Ultimately, while Fournette would take the city that never sleeps by storm, it’s also doubtful he’ll make it to the No. 6 overall pick when the Jets are on the clock.

In an article written by Randy Lange of the New York Jets, he breaks down the latest signing by the team in cornerback John Ojo. He’s a CFL talent that had some decent stats after tearing his ACL a few years ago and is looking to rebound again in the NFL. His journey won’t be an easy one but luckily for him, the Jets are in dire need of new talent in their secondary. Perhaps he’ll make the most out of this opportunity and shine this summer during training camps.

Finally, in an article written by Brian Costello of the New York Post, he breaks down that if the Jets do trade down in this year’s draft, they would be in a great position to select even more players to bolster their pass rush. At the end of the day, defense wins championships as adding more pass rushing players should help the Jets out in the long run. Trading down could ultimately be the best move the Jets can make on draft day to stock up on more players that could blossom well over the next few years.
