For all the focus on the offense during OTAs, the New York Jets defense still has some major holes. First and foremost, who's going to rush the passer. This team was near dead-last in pressuring quarterbacks last season.
Between drafting defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, moving Quenton Couples to a hybrid linebacker-end position and Ryan implementing more blitz-heavy schemes, there's talk of hope that this unit will indeed get in quarterbacks' faces more often.
But there are problems. Richardson was never a sack master in college (a total of six sacks in two seasons at Missouri). Couples -- who led the team in sacks last season -- will have to adjust to playing a new position with new roles, including dropping back in pass coverage. Ryan's blitz-happy schemes from his first two years with the Jets relied heavily on shutting down one side of the field thanks to a certain now-departed cornerback.
