The New York Jets draft started hot with the selection of Mekhi Becton (LT, Louisville) on Day 1. I think the selection was the right one over Tristan Wirfs who I have some questions on his ability to play OT. They stayed put and got away with a blue chip tackle for years to come.
The Jets now have picks No. 48, 68 and 79 and I think we could see some trades here on Day 2.
With big question marks at WR, outside CB and EDGE, I think that should be the focus on Rounds 2 and 3. Jets...
With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there's still the same intrigue. Here's a look at some of the AFC South Draft Notes.
Draft Notes: Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville holds 12 picks in 2020, including two firsts (9, 20) and three fourths.
Jags have one winning season (2017) in last 12 years, and there's no end in sight to the rebuild considering the team traded CB A.J. Bouye, DE Calais Campbell and QB Nick Foles to stockpile draft picks.
RB Leonard Fournette could...
With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there's still the same intrigue. Here's a look at some of the AFC East Draft Notes.
Draft Notes: Miami Dolphins
Dolphins enter the 2020 NFL Draft with the most picks (14), including three in the first round and six in the top-70.
Miami spent $235 million on 10 free agents recently, most on the defensive side of the ball. Dolphins surrendered a franchise-record 494 points in 2019. They registered the fewest sacks and allowed...
With the 2020 NFL Draft just days away, the focus for the Miami Dolphins draft might be something other than what most people imagine.
The Miami Dolphins have made no secret about seeking a franchise quarterback. Since Dan Marino’s retirement in 1999, the team started 21 different quarterbacks over those 20 seasons. Only Cleveland (29) and Chicago (23) have had more starting quarterbacks over that span.
Marino remains the last Dolphins quarterback to earn Pro Bowl (1995) and All-Pro (1986) selections.
Dolphins Draft Plans
Holding three first round picks, including the No. 5 overall, seems to have the team poised to pounce on...
The Miami Dolphins entered the NFL's 2020 league year with the most cap space of any team, more than $88 million. The team opened the free agency period aggressively, signing 10 players to new deals. The Dolphins draft, though, could still remake Miami.
The Dolphins are looking to reshape their roster after a 5-11 season, first under head coach Brian Flores. Despite the spending spree, the Miami Dolphins still have a number of draft needs entering April's NFL Draft.
Dolphins Draft Needs
Under first-year head coach Brian Flores, the Dolphins looked like one of the worst teams of all-time to open the season....
I know all the focus is on the scouting combine right now, but free agency is right around the corner and for us Jets fans, the 2020 Offseason is where hope starts. It's Joe Douglas's first offseason and we are all here for it. The Jets have quite a lot of holes but fortunately, they also have a lot of cap space and some decent draft ammo.
Here is my offseason guide from roster cuts, to free agent targets (and target prices) to a draft plan that, as a Jets fan, I know it will put us back on track.
The Cincinnati Bengals have been on the clock since the end of the 2019 season. Thanks to a 2-14 record, the Bengals hold the No. 1 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. And naturally, since they were the league's worst team in 2019, they have a number of needs in 2020.
Bengals Draft Needs
Considering the team finished 2019 at 2-14, the Bengals have many holes to fill on their roster. While it's not all going to come from the draft, Cincinnati should be able to address these areas of weakness in April, especially considering how deep some of these...
The AFC South has been a strange division in 2019. It's been a season of change in one way or another for each of the teams.
Andrew Luck retired just before the start of the season and Jacoby Brissett is installed as the Indianapolis Colts’ new starting QB.
Blake Bortles was out in Jacksonville and the Jags brought in Nick Foles to be their new starting QB. He got injured and was replaced by fifth-round pick Gardner Minshew, who instantly became a cult hero in Jacksonville.
The Tennessee Titans made a mid-season QB change. Marcus Mariota wasn’t up to par, so he...
A division of highs and lows, the AFC North contains arguably the best and worst teams in the NFL in the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals.
One's definitely on Santa's good list while the other...let's just they'd be getting coal in their stocking if it were up to me. Then add in the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the two teams responsible for one of the ugliest scenes we've seen for a long time in the NFL. They could well both be on the naughty list, too.
Will Santa be bringing them the gifts they're asking for this Christmas?
The NFL's AFC West is a division containing a Super Bowl contender, a perennial underachiever and two teams undergoing somewhat of a rebuild.
What can will first year head coach Vic Fangio be asking for in his first Christmas at Denver? Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders added a lot of pieces in the off-season but what will they be asking for this Christmas? The LA Chargers have been disappointing this year, is there a Christmas gift out there that can lift the mood in LA? And the Kansas City Chiefs, it feels like they're on the brink of doing...
