    Dare I say it? The Perfect Plan 2.0

    Re-signings -

    Dustin Keller
    • 4 Years - 18.5 Million - Coming off a down year, Keller reluctantly takes this multimillion dollar deal. It is a rather generous contract, and for a team in desperate need for playmakers, Keller comes back to prove his worth with a new QB in town.

    Braylon Edwards
    • 1 Year - 1.1 Million - Braylon has had great success in New York, and has picked up his play in green and white. For some reason, his play elevates, and his desire to play the game at 100% is beloved by New York fans.

    Brandon Moore
    • 2 Years - 6.5 Million - Moore is given a 2 year deal to stay in New York. He is one of our lone leaders, and veteran presences, and will retire in New York.


    Austin Howard
    • 1 Year, 1.3 Million - Howard, as a RFA, stays in New York. He showed tons of potential, and has the opportunity to man the RT position for a long time.

    Yeremiah Bell
    • 1 Year 1.3 Million - Bell is proven commodity, and hard hitting Safety. He knows where to be, and rarely gets beat. Solid veteran safety presence next to a young pup.

    Trades -

    The New York Jets trade Bilal Powell,Tim Tebow, and a 2014 6th round pick to the Tennessee Titans for a 4th round pick. Tebow provides a willing backup to QB Jake Locker, and Bilal Powell is the backup HB a team like the Titans have been searching for.


    Free Agency -

    - The Jets sign Donald Thomas to a 2 year, 5 million dollar contract. Thomas gives the Jets a young guard who has the potential to take the LG position. Thomas has had starting experience with an elite offensive line ala The Pats, and was great with the Dolphins this year.

    - The Jets sign ILB/OLB Aaron Curry to a 1 year, 850,000 dollar contract. I was a huge fan of Curry coming out of college, and feel that Rex will be more than capable to find a role for the highly gifted Curry.

    - The Jets sign HB Brian Leonard to a 2 year 1.9 million dollar contract. Leonard is a do it all kinda guy. Can line up at HB or FB. Willing blocker with quick feet, and hands to catch the ball out of the backfield. Knowledgable player who can do it all.

    - The Jets sign K, Jay Feely, 2 years, 3 million. Feely reunites with Rex. He's a team leader, that will bring a locker room presence, as well as clutch kicking.

    - The Jets sign TE Evan Moore to a league minimum contract.

    I've had the flu all week, and put extensive coverage into watching tape. I've worked out the numbers to fit in the teams cap.

    Round 1:
    There are a plethora of prospects I'm highly interested in at 9. For me, it came down to 2 outside linebackers; Barkevious Mingo and Dion Jordan.

    In Mingo and Jordan, it's really a toss up. Some days I want Jordan, others Mingo. Both players have a ton of potential. For Jordan, I love his potential. He's 6'7 with a huge wingspan, adding to that, from what I seen in my tape, I feel that they used him as a weapon in the pass defense, slotting him at slot receivers, and tight ends. His pass rush ability is very raw, but he has shown moves to get past defenders, and get off linemen if engaged. He also has the ability to fly around the ball, and improve our pass D, as he has the ability to D up on a Gronk or Hernandez. With Coples and Wilkerson providing an inside A gap rush, I feel that Jordan can thrive on the outside. So, with the 9th pick in the draft, the Jets select Dion Jordan! (OLB - Oregon)



    Round 2:
    There are a bunch of different directions we can go. Offensive Line, Safety, Wide Receiver, even Running Back, but I feel that everything starts with the quarterback.
    EJ Manuel takes his reign as the next Jet quarterbck. Manuel possesses all the tools to become an elite prospect. I love his size. At 6'5 he'll have the ability to read defenses without having to struggle to find his receivers. He is a nice arm, and he really impressed me in the combine. I was a fan of his pre senior bowl, due to the fact he was 4-0 in bowl games, and had the ability to win the big game. He has an IT factor, and I love his ability to stick the ball in tight places. Add to that, he's a leader, and can ride the ship for us in New York. (QB - FSU)



    Round 3:
    Markus Wheaton
    With Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards reunited, along with Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill, the team decides to add another playmaker. A team devoid of weapons adds another playmaker to the offense. With Braylon on a one year deal, Hill showing little to no signs in his rookie year, and Kerley stuck to the slot, the Jets can really use another playmaker. Wheaton is lighting quick with soft hands, and can run the complete route tree. A cross between Jeremy Maclin and Ocho Cinco. (WR - OSU)



    Round 4:
    Kenjon Barner
    Leon 2.0? We grab an elusive, quick back, taylor made for the WCO. Barner is unique for an Oregon HB because he has the ability to run in the trenches. He's a waterbug that has tons of potential. Think a cross between Kendall Hunter and Lamachael James. (RB - Oregon)



    Round 4:
    Stephan Taylor
    The do it all back that falls due to a less than impressive combine. Taylor is a guy that can catch out the backfield, run between tackles, and pass block with the best of them. He has deceiving elusiveness as well, and can make a man miss for a bigger back. His game is really unique, if I had to compare him to anyone, maybe a Cedric Benson or poor mans Matt Forte. (HB - Stanford)



    Round 5:
    Tyrann Matthieu. Tyrann is a flat out playmaker, that will inject life into our secondary. He is a really athletic kid, that just has the knack for finding the ball. He's a sound tackler, and hard hitter. I can see him moving to Safety, to compete for a starting job as a rookie. (DB - LSU)



    Round 6:
    Michael Williams - TE - Alabama
    Williams is a guy that I really like. He's a guy with solid hands, and great blocking ability. We've been longing for a legit blocker for years now, and Williams would be the perfect compliment to a guy like Keller.

    Round 7:
    Anthony McCloud
    Big bodied D-Lineman that was a viable piece on Florida State's roster. Solid D-Line depth. (DL - FSU)

    The moment you started your plan with giving 20mil to a 1 dimentional TE it became imperfect

    I forgot to change it to 18.5. 20 was my last mock, and forgot to re-edit. 18.5 is equivalent to Marcedis Lewis, Owen Daniels, and Greg Olsen.

    Mixed feelings.

    I became irate to see you blinded by OLB love in the first when neither of those 2 merit a pick that early. Hated your 2nd round pick even more.

    Liked a lot of what I saw after in the later rounds.


    ...i do think we need to seriously look at Keller. Its either figure something out with him, or Eifert/Escobar - which means we're investing a lot draft wise. We can't Ben Watson our way out of this one.

    First where does this money come from?

    Tebow is going to beat out Hassebeck?

    You don't think another team will sign howard for more that 1.3 mill?

    Edwards signs fro 1.1 mill, why?

    Draft seems solid

    Agree wholeheartedly with getting Jordan or Mingo in the first. Not so cool with taking Manuels in the second, would rather we take OL maybe someone like Cooper etc if available. If Rexy could salvage Curry that would be awesome.

    This is a OLB draft. There are at least 5 premiere players that rush the passer in the top half of the first round. Who do you want? Patterson? He has never proven to be a star player in college, and I'm not in love with his hands. I also don't want to draft a WR in the first. We just drafted Hill at 34, and have Kerley, Holmes, and Braylon. We have bigger needs, and can get better value. Warmack is not worth a top 10 pick. A left guard isn't going to make a difference to this team. Top 10 picks are made for playmakers or Left Tackles. A guard? No. Guard's are the least important position on offense, and can easily wedge a solid vet into that position.

    Manuel is my 2nd favorite QB in this draft. He has all the tools, and is a gamer. I spoke my mind about him in my earlier post.

    Hassleback is a free agent. I doubt he gets retained. Howard is expected to get around the 1.3 million. Most he gets is 2 million. 1.1 million is a tad bit above the league minimum. Plax got 1.3, and Chaz Schilens got 1.5. Are you going to argue with me over 200k?

    And in free agency, we stay prudent. Curry, Feely, Leonard all get deals around 1 million. We retain Keller at 4.5 per season, and splurge on a guard at around 2.5-3 million. We have the cap room to do all of that.

    Says the guy with Jordan in his sig... duhh really?!

    Forget it man. Ain't no way we gonna agree to sh*t here, i can see that. Patterson's a goof and all them OLBs have more questions than answers. Enjoy the pass-rush flavored cool-aide. Melvin Ingram says hi.

    Not bad.

    Likes:

    resigning Moore and Howard, b/c they are cheap and can be effective.

    Dislikes:

    Hill as a number 5, really? In an open comp he will prob be our 2/3.

    We took time go develop Powell, lets see what he can do.

    1rst round pick- don't want an undersized OLB, Ansah or bust. Give me the guy who can be more than a specialist.

    No love for Nick Folk, had a great year.

    Saying that you want a guard instead of a QB whne the Jets biggest need is Qb is beyond asinine.

    Which punter do you want in the 3rd round?

    It's a projected Depth Chart, and it is an open competition. If he proves to be better than Wheaton, Bray, or Kerely, I'd be excited, yet I doubt it.

    I see Powell as a limited upside back. Kinda mediocre to me. Rather have Taylor, and get rid of Tebow.

    I also don't think Folk's clutch. I feel that he has mental breakdowns and scares me. Also, the guy can't get a touchback to save his life. For = price, give me Feely.

    There's so much about this I disagree with. All those new toys will struggle behind that O Line. I like the Jordan pick. He's looking better to me the more I think about his coverage skills. I'd prefer to pick the best OG (Jones if God is good) in the second than Manuel. I like the wr in the 3rd, rb in the fourth, love Mathieu in the fifth and TE in the 6th. I go QB instead of the D lineman in the seventh.

    The contract for Keller is really high I think. I hope we don't spend that much on him.
    Also, I think between Cumberland, the draftee, Moore, and Smith we seem ok. I'd let him walk. Spend that money elsewhere.

    I like Braylon for one year and Moore for two as well as Howard

    Use the money you gave Keller for Landry if that's a possibility.

    I like your free agents except Feely. No need. (We can really afford them?)

    Hate your trade. Sorry.

    Nice work.

    Why do you think Hassesbach moves on in favor of Tebow

    Howard would be 2.2 mill or he walks

    Edwards will get 2-3x that, he might not get much of a SB but he will get some team to sign him to a 3mill contract if he makes the active roster.

    Exactly, I will never understand fans that want to trade players like powell. There is nothing that powell doesnt do above average and he makes virtually no money.

    I do like barner though

    I know EJ will most likely go in the second round. That is a huge reach for a QB who wont start for 2-3 years. I go to FSU, and have been at a lot of practices. Kid doesnt have an NFL arm. He is not as fast as people like Kaepernick and RG3 as well.
