New York Jets Rated One of Five Weakest Rosters

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports's Chris Wesseling has an article out with the five weakest rosters in the NFL heading into the Draft. The Jets rated third.

Aside from the obvious error in the previous hard-headed commitment to Mark Sanchez as the franchise quarterback, the Jets' offense is devoid of reliable playmakers.

Career backup Mike Goodson appears to be the favorite to start at running back. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes' health is a major question mark after he had Lisfranc surgery. The Jets also lost starters at both guard spots and tight end.

If the Jets find a way to keep Darrelle Revis, they can field a respectable defense with the addition of two edge rushers at outside linebacker. Unfortunately, a Revis trade appears to be a matter of "when," not "if." The run defense also took a hit with the loss of Mike DeVito to the Kansas City Chiefs.

There really is not much to add here. The team was not very good last year, and there wasn't enough money around to keep it from getting worse. By the time 2014 rolls around, the Jets will have more money to spend and hopefully two quality Draft classes. Things are going to get darker before they get brighter, though.

If you are looking for some solace, all five teams on the list call the AFC home, including division rival Buffalo.
