Good morning, Jets fans! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. The NFL Combine officially started yesterday, and hopefully the Jets use this time to evaluate the talent properly while trying not to get too caught up in some of the ‘workout warriors’ we’ve seen in the past (and unfortunately, have drafted before) that end up becoming busts. It’s really a tough thing for an NFL team to do, but that’s why most put heavy resources into the scouting department. With Mike Maccagnan’s background as a scout, we’d like to hope the Jets will be prepared well for this time. But, if history has shown us anything, it’s that the only talent properly evaluated so far by this staff has only been found in the 1st round. In other news, the Jets are reportedly looking for Donte Moncrief to fill a spot for the WR’s. I’m not a fan of this particular move — and I don’t think Moncrief is that great — but if he’s coming on the cheap and can provide an efficient role then who am I to judge? He seems to have better numbers with better QB play (shocking, I know), so maybe with Sam he can garner some newfound success. With that, here are your links for the Jets this Wednesday.
