2014 Draft 5th rounder

STATS

  • 40 YARD DASH: 4.66 SEC
  • BENCH PRESS: 25 REPS
  • VERTICAL JUMP: 30.5 INCH
  • BROAD JUMP: 120.0 INCH
  • 3 CONE DRILL: 7.11 SEC
  • 20 YARD SHUTTLE: 4.07 SEC
 

ANALYSISStrengths

Good size. Plays with a good, wide base. Very productive tackler. Outstanding personal and football character -- works hard, is accountable and commands respect. Smart, understands the game and can make all the calls and on-field adjustments.

Weaknesses

Average athletic ability and foot quickness -- is a step late to the perimeter. Struggles to disengage from blockers once he is locked up. Limited cover range and reactions -- is late to recognize and gets sucked up by playaction. Average functional strength. Is not a take-on thumper. His 30 1/2-inch vertical was worst among middle linebackers at the combine.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

A functional, between-the-tackles run stopper with a chance to make it on the inside of a 3-4 defense where he can patrol the middle. Can be targeted in coverage

I am happy with this deal.  It is the type of player they should be using he capspace for.  

I also think Crowell was a decent move.  The Jets need to assume that they will not have their second round draft picks, or may need them for someone else.  If they draft a RB, Powell can go.

This is an exciting one. If you have $100 mil, you need to steal young, productive players. Sort of feel bad for Demario who was one of the few Jets still battling at the end of the season. He’d be a good pickup for the Giants, who need linebackers and who need leadership. Something to watch: Davis covered up for Lee a lot and did a bunch of the dirty work. Is Williamson the type of dude to sacrifice himself so Lee can clean up?
