  3. The release of the Jets’ 2017 schedule Thursday night was met with about as much enthusiasm as was your high school trigonometry class. It feels like the Jets are DOA this year with fans already prepared to write this season off with dreams of USC quarterback Sam Darnold in 2018 floating in their heads. At the moment, the Jets are the team without a face. They don’t have an identity. They don’t have a marketable star player. They don’t have any pizzazz. They are a team lacking anything for their fans to cling to. Football organizations have a clear division in their buildings between the business side and the football side. At the Jets’ headquarters in Florham Park, they have two parking lots — one designated for football operations, the other for business. They are separated like church and state. A team would be foolish to let the business side of things influence football decisions. But … You can bet there are plenty of people inside the Jets’ organization wishing for next week’s draft to deliver them not just a good football player, but one who will get their fan base enthused. The Jets have plenty of needs right now, from quarterback to tight end to cornerback, but their biggest need is not a position – it is hope.The Jets need something to sell to their fans as they undergo this rebuild. Mets fans were able to live through miserable seasons in 2011-13 knowing Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler and Noah Syndergaard were on the way.Who are the Jets pushing forward as the face of the franchise right now? Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and Nick Mangold were major parts of the Jets’ marketing campaign last year. All are now gone. Leonard Williams is a special talent, but he is a defensive lineman. Besides J.J. Watt, there are not many out there at that position who are marketable. If your kid wants a Jets jersey for his or her birthday, which player are you going with? Eric Decker? It does not seem like he will be around past this season. Muhammad Wilkerson? His poor 2016 season has cast doubt on his long-term future with the team. Sheldon Richardson? He might be gone by Friday.The NFLPA released the top 50 selling jerseys of the 2016 season. Marshall, at No. 45, was the Jets’ lone representative. Now, with Marshall playing for the Giants, that jersey is a throwback.Again, this is not to say Mike Maccagnan should be thinking this way. He must select the best football player. If that is Marshon Lattimore or Malik Hooker, then that is who he will take. But you know the people whose job it is to sell Jets tickets are hoping they go with the offensive star who can excite people — quarterbacks Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson, running back Leonard Fournette or tight end O.J. Howard. The last time the Jets selected someone in the first round who truly brought excitement to town was Mark Sanchez in 2009. That also is the last time the Jets went offense in the first round. Maccagnan is going to take the “best player available.” Plenty of people who root for the Jets, and work for them, surely are hoping he also is the “most exciting player available.” >

  10. This is the fifth installment of our position-by-position breakdown for the New York Jets as we head to the April 27-29 draft: Position: Offensive line Current personnel: Center -- Wesley Johnson (signed through 2017), Jonotthan Harrison (2017); Guard -- Brian Winters (2020), James Carpenter (2018), Dakota Dozier (2017), Brent Qvale (2017), Craig Watts (2017); Tackle -- Kelvin Beachum (2019), Ben Ijalana (2018), Brandon Shell (2019), Jeff Adams (2017), Donald Hawkins (2017). Key newcomers: Beachum, Harrison. Departures: C Nick Mangold (cut), RT Breno Giacomini (cut) and LT Ryan Clady (option not exercised). Projected starters: LT Ijalana, LG Carpenter, C Johnson, RG Winters, RT Beachum. Overview: General manager Mike Maccagnan believes he "stabilized" the offensive line by adding Beachum and re-signing Winters and Ijalana. The offseason overhaul definitely made it a younger unit than last year, as the average age of the starters went from 29 to 27.2. But don't be fooled into thinking everything is peachy. Johnson is on a one-year contract and still is somewhat of an unknown (nine career starts). There's also some uncertainty regarding Beachum, whose surgically repaired knee (from 2015) still is a concern to some. Many figured he was signed to play left tackle, his position since 2013, but Beachum actually will start out at right tackle, according to coach Todd Bowles. Part of the thinking is that Ijalana made progress at left tackle and they don't want to move him. Beachum will compete with Shell, a 2016 draft pick, but we know how that will turn out. The Jets didn't give Beachum a $12 million guarantee to sit him on the bench. The last lineman drafted: In 2016, they took Shell in the fifth round -- and they're still paying for it, meaning they traded a 2017 fourth-rounder to get him. Currently, they have no fourth-round picks. Shell showed some promise at the end of the season, but a tap of the brakes is in order. He got a lot of help in pass protection. Potential targets: Maccagnan took care of business in free agency because he knows this isn't a great draft for offensive linemen. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Jets wait until Day 3 to address any needs, if then. They could use a center and a developmental tackle, but they haven't been linked to any of the top prospects in terms of private workouts and visits. Only five centers have draftable grades, according to Scouts, Inc. Perhaps if Pat Elflein (Ohio State) and Ethan Pocic (LSU) are still around in the third, when the Jets have two picks, they will give it some thought. Tackles Zach Banner (USC) and Julie'n Davenport (Bucknell) -- mid-round projections -- have received cursory interest from the Jets. It always helps to add young players to the pipeline, but they have so many other needs. This could be the first time since 2011 they don't draft an offensive lineman. Need factor (based on a scale of 1 to 10) Center -- 6; guard -- 5; tackle -- 5. >
