Outside Of Adams Do The Jets Have A Top Five Players At Any Position?

Recommended Posts

The top 5 Safeties in the NFL (in no particular order) are Earl Thomas, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Kevin Byard, Derwin James and Eddie Jackson.

If you want to say Jamal is a top 5 SS/Box Safety, sure, I'll give you that.

Who are the 5 you would take?  

Chris Harris (DEN), Desmond King (LAC), Byron Jones (DAL).  And when healthy, Bryce Callahan.  

Poole "slots in" at # 4 or 5 on the list.

That was point. Slot CBs aren’t the  top CBs on the team. They put the 3rd best CB there. 

No, not really.  Slot corner is becoming a premium position based on the way the game is being played, and you need a specific skillset. 

It's not as simple as saying the Slot is a CB3 and therefore only the 3rd best CB.  That's a very antiquated way of thinking at this point.  There are at least a handful of "elite slot corners" that are far better at their jobs than just about any CB2 in the NFL.  

Will Slot CB ever be more valuable than any CB1?  No, never.  But it's far more valuable than you give it credit for.  And the money being spent by GM's on the position in recent years reflects that.:  Chris Harris made $11.9M this year while spending the majority of his snaps in the slot.  The Broncos "doubled down" on the position last offseason too, signing Bryce Callahan to a 3-yr, $21M deal with $10M guaranteed.  The Lions signed away Justin Coleman from the Seahawks (2nd round tender) and are paying him $36M over 4 years.  The Colts signed Kenny Moore to an extension worth $33M over 4 years, with $9M guaranteed at signing.

Ok then even if you say the slot CB is the 2nd best on the team is Poole the 6th best CB in the NFL? I’d say no. 

Based on what I posted earlier, I think Poole is the 4th or 5th best slot CB in the NFL right now.  Only Chris Harris, Desmond King and Byron Jones are better.  Bryce Callahan might be also but missed all of 2019 with an injury.

If you could pick any DB in the NFL to play slot CB would Poole be a top 5?

No, because you'd have to throw Minkah Fitzpatrick into that mix, because he splits time at FS and slot CB.  Stephon Gillmore would be another one; he primarily plays on the outside but is also an elite slot guy when tasked with that role.  But assuming any old CB can kick inside to the slot would be a severe mistake.  

But if we're talking more of the "full-time" slot CB's, yes, Poole would be top 5.  Because teams are using Nickle formations almost like base sets these days, that makes Poole an elite defender at a position of importance.

Only at: QB, RB, WR, S#2, ILB, DT, and soon to be OT after we draft Wirfs.

Wait we have a top 5 QB, RB, WR and DT?  When did this happen?  Joe Douglas rocks.

I'll name them: Darnold, Bell, R. Anderson, Foley Fatukasi, Mosely, and Maye. Plus Adams but he was a besides player by op. These are great players,  but having the worst oline in football and Gase held back the skill players on offense tremendously. Foley Fat is a huge reason for us leading in rush D, and Gregg Williams.

 

So you honestly believe all 6 of those players are top 5 in the NFL at their positions.  

Yikes. 

Ever watch other NFL games?

Is this your opinion or are there facts and links supporting this statement?
Are all these better safety’s going to the Pro Bowl too?


Facts. And Pro Bowl is a popularity contest.
