Analysis by Position:

QB: PUT DOWN THE PITCHFORKS. Please. You'll put your eyes out. Now, I want to actually look back and watch some game film from Matt Barkley. HE IS NOT SANCHEZ. He may be a USC man, but dont follow the hive mind. He has experience in the West Coast. He is great under pressure. Hes the smartest quarterback in the draft. I have seen every throw he's made in 2012, and I can confidently say he is the best quarterback in the draft. He will have an open competition with Sanchez and McElroy. I fully expect him to win.

RB: Felix Jones is a good veteran back that could thrive here.The Jets are running a West Coast, so his usage would be limited.. He would fit in perfectly. 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. For this year, I believe this is a more than competent committee. FB: Braden Wilson: Competant, I hope. Doesn't really matter.

WR: Darrius Heyward Bey will be this years Landry. A one year bounce back contract, he will fill the #2 slot until Stephen Hill is fully developed. 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. With Holmes and Heyward Bey on the sidelines and Kerley operating out of the slot, and a developing Hill at #4, we will have both a decent corps with good depth. Barkley could definately succeed with this group

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. Waddle and Landolt will battle for the roster spot.

Tight End: Here is my favorite position coming out of the draft. The NFL is becoming a 2 tight end league, whether you like it or not. Escobar and Eifert could be better than Gronk/Hernandez. There, I said it. They both were dominant receiving weapons in college, and will let Barkley flourish in the new West Coast.

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. Devito will provide his sturdy run defense. Pouha is a controversial keep, but I think he will bounce back to 2011 dominance. I think Omar Hunter can be Mike Devito 2.0, a decent rotational player.

LOLB: Victor Butler is a decent OLB who always stuck behind the great linebackers of the Cowboys. He has played well when he got the chance, and fits the Jets moneyball philosophy this year. Brandon Jenkins is coming of an season ending injury, but was arguably better than Tank Carradine or Bjoern Werner in 2011. He will get a chance to compete with Butler for the starting spot. Ricky Sapp still has potential.

ROLB: Alex Okafor is a slightly underrated prospect, given the dearth of 3-4 OLBs this year, but he's a personal favorite of mine and a surefire first round talent. 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. I love the film I see of him, almost as much as I hate Barkevious Mingo's film. Seriously, he sucks.

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. Branden Siler can be a great special teamer and solid backup. 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 safety spot will be a three way competion between Tyrann Mathieu and Allen/Busg. Beggars cant be choosers,and the Jets should take advantage of their dip of Mathieu 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. There is still a little cap space to resign someone like Bell if we aren't happy with the current situation, i.e. Mathieu and Allen/Bush aren't impressing

P: Rob Malone. MVP.

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: 10-6, Wild Card

Playoffs as a wild card are possibility, with today's weak AFC. It all hinges on Barkley. If he can play like a Wilson or evan a Bradford, this defense can take us deep. There are a lot of what-ifs for this team, with at least 6 rookie starters, 4 at important positions. This team actually has decent depth. Injuries can derail these dreams, but the eternal optimist in me is always hopeful.
