AGOP Well...Here Ya Go!

I am going to do this in a relatively simple manner, I have very little knowledge of the draft and college football in general, I do not watch it and have not followed too many players. Therefore, I concluded that it would be completely pointless to basically guess player selections and plug them into positions as if they could realistically contribute. In reality, I have absolutely no clue who they should pick in the middle to late rounds, so I simply say BPA because that is what they are going to do regardless. Competition will dictate who starts.

Before we enter free agency, the team will cut these *key salary* players:

Santonio Holmes

Mark Sanchez

Antonio Cromartie

Entering free agency, the team must now analyze specific position group needs that can be addressed in the "short term" through free agency offers. Groups of need are:

2 Wide Receivers, 1 Tight End, Backup Quarterback, Right Guard, Cornerback, & Punter

Estimated Cap: $48,118,558

Addressing each need by position group:

Wide Receiver: Sign Sidney Rice for 1 year - $3.75 million

Wide Receiver: Resign Santonio Holmes for 1 year - $2.5 million

1st tight end: Resign Jeff Cumberland for 3 years - $8 million

Backup Quarterback: Sign Josh McCown for 2 years - $7.5 million

Right Guard: Resign Willie Colon for 1 year - $1.75 million

Cornerback: Antonio Cromartie for 1 year - $5 million

Punter: Sign Pat McAfee for 2 years - $6.5 million

Roughly Estimated Cap after ALL team free agency signings: $25,500,000

NFL DRAFT

At 18, Trade to Carolina Panthers for their 28th pick of the 2014 1st round, their 2014 3rd round pick, and their 2015 3rd round pick.

At 28: Select Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews

Within the top 5 picks of the 2nd round, we trade our 49th 2nd round and the newly acquired 3rd round pick from the panthers to move up.

Selecting at the top (top 5) of the 2nd: Austin Seferian-Jenkins

At 69th: BPA

At 80th: BPA

111th: Charles Sims West Virginia (Pick earlier if need be, but I like him)

BPA the rest of the way, BPA, BPA, and some more BPA

Basically that is pretty much that, now for a position-by-position break down going into training camp! *Camp Bodies basically means BPA rookies and players brought in to compete in camp who could very well land a spot on the roster - I cannot in anyway fathom the names of these people, and my limited knowledge of college football does not allow me to make realistic draft predictions that I would feel comfortable with.

QB: Geno Smith, Josh McCown, Matt Simms, David Garrard

RB: Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Mike Goodson, Charles Sims, Alex Green, John Griffin

FB: Tommy Bohanon, Lex Hillard

WR: Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, Jeremy Kerley, Jordan Matthews, Stephen Hill, David Nelson, Camp Bodies

TE: Jeff Cumberland, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Zach Sudfield, Camp Bodies

OT: D'Brick, Austin Howard, Ben Ijalana, Oday Aboushi, Camp Bodies

OG: Brian Winters, Willie Colon, William Campbell, Camp Bodies

C: Nick Mangold, Probably someone who isnt named Schlauderaff, Camp Bodies

DE: Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson, Leger Douzable, Camp Bodies

DT: Damon Harrison, Kendrick Ellis

OLB: Quinton Coples, Calvin Pace, Antwan Barnes, Garrett McIntyre, Camp Bodies

MLB: David Harris, Demario Davis, Nick Bellore, Camp Bodies

CB: Antonio Cromartie, Dee Milliner, Kyle Wilson, Darrin Walls, Ellis Lankster, Camp Bodies

S: Dawan Landry, Antonio Allen, Ed Reed, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Josh Bush, Camp Bodies

K: Nick Folk

P: Pat McAfee

Figuring after everything is said and done, the team will be left with ample cap room going into 2015. I did my best in doing this because I have always figured that the jets won't make nearly as many big changes as people will expect, and any difference in starters will be drafted players beating players out (like Pace or Allen/Reed), not being automatic starters. The same goes for free agency, I do not see too many players besides on offense being plugged in as starters, competition all the way.

GO JETS!
