The Top 15 Jets of the Rex Ryan Era, #6: Brandon Moore

New, comments

Put your eyebrows down, because yes, of all the players over the past two years, the Jets' right guard is the sixth best player on the team. I told you guys earlier when I made this list that position was not going to be much of a factor in making this list. 

Moore is one of the most consistent players on the team. He only has one or two penalties per season, and rarely, if ever, gets beat on an inside rush. As I was said earlier in my post about Damien Woody, the Jets love to run right. That's not a coincidence. Moore moves around some of the most powerful three techniques in the league in the run game. 

What is funny about Moore is that he was actually released in February of 2009. No on really understood why, and the Jets brought him back not much later, realizing their mistake. The converted defensive lineman has since emerged as one of the premier guards in the league - Rex has gone as far as to call him the single best guard in football. 

Hint for #5 - The first of the "Core 4" to rank on this list.
