Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. Jachai Polite seems like he will have a huge weight on his shoulders despite only being a 3rd Round selection by the Jets. Due to Jets’ GM Mike Maccagnan refusing to sign literally anyone who plays Edge in FA, Polite and last year’s ragtag group will become the staples of that position. Although there were some glimmers of potential last year, I don’t think relying on Polite to be a bona fide stud at the position in his first year is a game plan for success. The NFL average for 3rd round players becoming starters is roughly 33%, while Maccagnan’s draft picks alone are under 20%. Although I predicted the team wouldn’t pick up anyone else, it’s a bit alarming to have certain positions with no relative plan in place. If the Jets want to build a successful team, they may have to get lucky this year. With that said, here are your links to the team this Tuesday.
