Analysis by Position:

QB: Sanchez gets his last chance with a new coach and a new system. McElroy is sufficient enough to back him up if he gets pulled, or they could try and put in Tyler Wilson, a prospect that I am a huge fan of. I expect an open competition in camp, with Sanchez narrowly winning

RB: Joseph Randle is a weapon out of the backfield, catching 22 last year for Oklahoma State. He should compete with Powell for the #1 spot. McKnight will stay as a dangerous kick return weapon. Finally, Maysonet is my pick for steal of the draft. Arguably the best FCS player in the draft, he tore apart the competition, including FBS foes Syracuse and Army. I have no problems seeing him win the third down back spot, and ending the starter.

FB: Zach Line is the best fullback in the draft, and can catch out of the backfield, which will fit in the West Coast system.

WR: I think that the Jets should stay their hand at this position. Stephen Hill will have a full offseason of development, Kerley will be even better. Holmes, in all his hate received, is actually probably underrated by Jets fans at this point. He still can be a weapon, and a West Coast will highlight his ability to run after the catch. Edwards is a low cost return for a Sanchez favorite, and Tarvaress King has #3/4 potential

Oline: Yes, I say keep the line we have. Our line is probably best fit for a West Coast offense. A mauler like Warmack or Fluker would be nice, but the West Coast favors pass protection. Moore, Ferguson, and Mangold are all Pro Bowlers. Slauson never gave up a sack last year. And Howard has room to improve. Maybe Ducasse will trip over a magic branch or something and become decent, though probably not. Hurst, Schlauderaff, Madsen, and Landolt are all serviceable backups.

Tight End: Dustin Keller is overrated, and Zach Ertz is a great talent. He can catch and block, and has Pro Bowl potential. Plus, he's cheaper. Cumberland is a decent catching weapon, not a bad number 2.

D-Line: Honestly, this may be the best 3-4 front in football next year. Coples and Wilk are dominant, and Ellis was pretty good in his play during the year. I think Omar Hunter can be Mike Devito 2.0, a decent rotational player.

LOLB: Manny Lawson is a decent OLB who played last year out of position in a 4-3, which may mean we can get him on the cheap. Ricky Sapp still has potential. Speaking of which, Ron Powell was the top recruit in the nation in 2010, but was ravaged by injuries. May be a total bust, may be a star. Worth a flyer

ROLB: Alex Okafor is a slightly underrated prospect, given the dearth of 3-4 OLBs this year, but can be great. He can rush the passer, with 8 sacks last year, and stop the run, with 46 tackles and 12 TFLs. He can overcome challenges,with teammate Jackson Jeffcoat going down, causing him to get more attention, and can come up clutch, with game changing plays in close games like against West Virginia. I see star potential here.

ILBs: David Harris, while overrated, can still play well, and is a liability to be cut. So, he stays. Demario Davis can hopefully fill into the role he was groomed for with Bart Scott leaving. Mauga and Greer can be solid special teamers.

S: Corey Lynch is my Moneyball pick. A great special teamer for San Diego, he took over when the starter was hurt and played well. With the Jet's money problems, he may be a great bang for buck pick. The free safety spot will be a competion between Tyrann Mathieu and Bacarri Rambo. Both are some troubled players with star potential. Beggars cant be choosers,and the Jets should take advantage of their dip and get a Vontaze Burfict like return. Mathieu can be a ballhawking safety, picking off up to 8 a year. Plus, he is a better punt returner than "Captain Fair Catch" Kerley. Rambo can be a dominant in the box strong safety, and showed it at Georgia.

P: Rob Malone.

K: Dustin Hopkins may have been the best kicker in the FBS. Hopefully he's another Tucker/Walsh/Legatron

CB: I saved them for last, because I save the best for last. This may be the best cornerback tandem of all time. There. I said it. Revis in my mind is better than Deion. And Cro was a dominant corner last year, totally snubbed from the All Pro team. And Kyle Wilson can be great in the slot. In today's passing world, they can take a decent offense to the playoffs.

Outlook:

Playoffs as a wild card are possibility, with today's weak AFC. It all hinges on Sanchez's ability to run the West Coast. If he can regain some 2010 form and some confidence, the defense can take us into the playoffs. There are a lot of what-ifs for this team, with at least 6 rookie starters, 4 at important positions. Injuries can derail these dreams, but the eternal optimist in me is always hopeful.


Prediction:10-6, playoffs
