ESPN put together an offseason power ranking of where teams currently stand. The Jets find themselves near the bottom.
29. New York Jets
The Jets surpassed expectations in 2017, and Josh McCown surprised with his quality of play. But where does that leave them now? They still don’t have a long-term plan at quarterback and have the No. 6 pick in the 2018 draft, which could be too late to draft one of the top quarterback prospects.
As always, power rankings are meaningless unless they praise the Jets.
In this case, the rankings are only telling us where teams currently stand. We have a full offseason where players will change teams and new prospects will enter the league. It is worth watching the trajectory of rankings like this as the offseason progresses to see how the pundits change their minds as teams add and lose players. If the Jets figure out that quarterback situation, it could mean a steep rise in the rankings.
