    agreed!  I expect REX to taint the QB battle in favor of his boy!    He has done it in the past and will do so in the future.  Sanchez will be the downfall ofr WRECKS!

    Click here for reaction and analysis as we continue to update:

    Mike Edwards, CB, Hawaii
    5’9 189

    Edwards is a talented corner who had some off field issues. He started at out as a Tennessee Vol and was a four star recruit. He was booted off the squab after he was charged with attempted robbery. As a player he gets very physical with receivers despite his short stature so that lack of height, while a major concern, is somewhat negated by that physicality. He should make the squad and could see time as a nickel corner or possibly return man. He saw some snaps at WR at Hawaii as well.

    Rontez Miles, S, Cal (PA)
    6’0 218

    A small school stud with massive 10 (1/4) inch hands and good speed at 4.55-4.62 for a free safety Miles will add speed and athleticism to the practice squad at worst and push for time at best. He needs some development as he adjusts to NFL caliber competition. Miles can jump in and realistically compete for a starting job. The hybrid safety has some Johnathan Cyprien in him, as he is interchangeable at both safety positions. Miles was projected to go as high as the 5th round, was a top small-schooler all year, and was one of the most highly-sought after UDFAs. The Jets’ scouts and quick thinking nab an absolute steal here.

    Mike Shanahan, TE/WR, Pitt
    6’5 241

    Mike Shanahan, no not that Mike Shanahan (no relation), is a terrific addition to the Jets. He has a tight end’s body but the athleticism to play WR at Pitt and do very well. He isn’t overly explosive or athletic, but he gets it done and with a 6’5 frame can really challenge smaller defensive backs and safeties. A very good high school basketball player Shanahan should be able to box out corners in the red zone.

    Ryan Spadola, WR, Lehigh
    6’1 204

    Spadola is fast and will challenge for one of the last wide receiver position or be a great gunner and special teamer. He surprised many with his consistency in basic catching drills (gauntlet) at the Combine.

    Chris Pantale, TE, Boston College
    6’5 256

    Not a standout athlete but he was productive and solid as a blocker and receiver for the Eagles. He has very good size and is a natural mover running routes. With how desperate the Jets are at TE he could easily be in the mix to start.

    Zach Rogers, WR, Tennessee
    6’0 182

    He isn’t a stellar athlete, but I would be surprised if he doesn’t make the roster and see some time on Sundays in 5 WR sets as a slot specialist. He is crafty and gets open and ran a 4.49 at his Pro day. At times, Rogers proved to be as effective in the Tennessee passing game as highly touted teammates Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson. Roger’s athleticism, once again, won’t blow you away. However, you could argue that he will adjust to the speed of the NFL much easier than his former teammates, as he’s much more polished in regards to catching ability. Rogers is also consistently called one of the smartest players on the team. His smarts are evident in his sideline awareness and his technical routes. I (Mike), am definitely labeling Rogers as the Jets’ UDFA signing with the most potential to make an impact in the future.

    KJ Stroud, WR, Bethune-Cookman
    6’3 205

    Stroud is very intriguing. In 2012, he only caught 26 passes for 286 yards, but his impressive workout numbers, including a 4.4 second forty time, caught scouts’ attention, anyways. Most reports say that he was never fully healthy in 2012, as well.

    Mark Popek, OG, South Florida
    6’7 308

    A team leader and rock of the Bulls offensive line Popek is a developmental OG/OT with good leadership and intangibles. A coaches favorite is always worth a shot, especially with his 6’7 frame and massive 11 inch hands.

    Spencer Nealy, DT, Texas A&M
    6’3 285

    Nealy is a versatile having played defensive end and tackle for the Aggies. He is active and plays hard. From a talent perspective, there isn’t a whole lot to work with but could stick on the roster because of the scheme versatility and activity level. Nealy was often referred to as a major leader on his successful Texas A&M team.

    Troy Davis, DE/OLB, UCF
    6’2 251 via said “Davis first caught the attention of NFL teams with his pass-rushing skills, and then again with his 4.65-second 40-yard dash at UCF’s pro day. He enjoyed a very strong all-around workout, but the question is whether he’s a hybrid without a true position at 251 pounds.” I’m on board, especially because a hybrid defender always has a fit in a hybrid system like Rex’s.

    Dalton Freeman, C, Clemson
    6’5 291

    Freeman is actually a draftable guy, but he plays center so there are a limited amount of teams willing to use a pick on the position. His Pro day was very impressive posting a third best 4.88 40 among all lineman and is clearly a good athletic. The question is can he improve on technique and gain more strength so he can anchor effectively in the trenches.

    Trey Gilleo, OT, Northern Arizona
    6’7 309

    The Northern Arizona Lumberjack is from Kingman, Arizona and has a criminal justice degree. That certainly sounds tough to me, and at 6’7 309 pounds he does have an NFL frame. He looks to be a practice squad body and developmental project.

    Antavious Wilson, WR, Marshall
    6’1 198

    If you were looking to watch Aaron Dobson (New England’s 2nd rounder) in 2012 you likely came away saying “who is that #9 at WR”? He outperformed his more physically gifted teammate and the “quicker than fast” (ran a 4.62) and “sneaky good athlete” clichés fit well.

    Roosevelt Holliday, DT, Eastern Illinois
    6’2 307

    He looks to be a very fluid athlete and aggressive tackler. It’s a little hard to tell with grainy film and less than stellar competition because I see some potential a defensive line savant like Rex came draw from. We’ve seen one Eastern Illinois Panthers make a name for themself: Tony Romo, Sean Payton, Mike Shanahan, Brad Childress and the late Mike Heimerdinger. Plus actor John Malkovich. Not a bad list!

    Jake McDonough, DT, Iowa St
    6’5 305

    Our friend at James Christenson wrote on his game versus Iowa: “McDonough destroyed Iowa center James Ferentz for the majority of the night, swatting down balls and disrupting plays in the backfield. He has the ability to be a good rotational lineman at the next level.” Again, I’m on board with that. For the full review visit click here.

    Alex Dunnachie, Punter, Hawaii
    6’3 217

    This punter become the second Jet on the roster to have Aussie bloodlines. He has a monster leg, evident by his 36 punts that notched over 50 yards over his first three season at Hawaii. The Jets give him a chance after he was suspended the first four games of 2012 due to a drunk driving arrest over the summer.

    If Sucky was able to get the ball even remotely close to his receivers, perhaps they would be better at making plays.  Sucky is so inaccurate he makes the guys go nuts trying to catch his wild high passes or into the ground bloopers.

    Why?   What have you seen that makes you think he can be a top QB and win a SB for the Jets?     I have not seen anything but that might just be me.  Rooting for him is one thing.  Another is to really believe in him.  They are vastly different.

  7. Kentucky Jet added a post in a topic Is Geno Smith better than Ryan Tannehill??   

    Geno needs some fine tuning.  but he has above average talent.   He is a dual threat and has a very good arm capable of making all the throws.   Some guys just love to hate!   I am hoping he can develop into what this franchise needs to win a Super Bowl.  he surely has that kind of talent.   Our OC was at his pro day and was in awe of what he saw of  Geno.   I'd rather accept his opinion as a talent evaluator!  GO JETS!

    we were pretty decent with Wilson last year and no pass rush.  We tend to dump on the guy because he is not Revis.  But he was decent for a #2 CB.   He could get better this year with more experience.

    Favre also throw the ball deep much more often then Suckchez.   I think Brett was well over 60 per cent completion percentage.   Sucky has yet to hit that mark but he did his Moore's butt.

    Hill and Edwards are big receivers. McKnight can catch out of the backfield and so can Powell.. Not many QBs are smarter then McElroy! They guy was a near RHODES SCHOLAR. But can he win in the NFL with this new system and poor blocking in front of him?
