There's a foundation. Its just missing the most important piece, QB. The rest is easy. Except OLB, lots of options right around where the Jets draft. Scares me a bit.
Completely agree. Our OL finished 5th in run-blocking at the season's end...and that was with a decimated WR and TE corps and a B-level Running Back. A healthy Holmes, and decent TE option, and a more talented feature back would do wonders for this team. Sanchez, or not.
[Add in a drafted OL, we are only 3 players away from a legit offense] Quick fix = Sign a free agent TE, draft a featured RB, and future OL starter.
I say we do away with the FB position all together. Let Josh Baker get healthy and play TE/FB. His versatility will help fill out the other parts of the roster. Who knows, maybe we can use some of the Iso-DT plays that San Francisco plays (where NT Sopogoa lines up at FB).
On Defense, our DL is back in full (minus DeVito, but plus Ellis), and our secondary will still be impressive (minus Landry, but plus Revis).
I like the idea of Demario Davis becoming that "vocal leader" he was labelled as, and have no problem playing McIntyre opposite a rotating Ricky Sapp/Rookie combination. [Aside from depth we are only an OLB and some safeties away from a legit defense].
Quick fix = draft an OLB and a Safety, figure out what we've got with Josh Bush and Antonio Allen, and re-sign Bell or Landry.
Get our kicker back, get our long snapper back...and get healthy. Done.
