Taking a look at the Tackles and scheme fit

Recommended Posts

Good work though the one I cross off is Trey Adams, he was about as unauthentic as you can get at the combine, coming of bad injuries.  He to me is hackenburgesque as far as being really good and promising two years ago.

I would like to see something similar done for Wr and RB.  Do we have any clue as to what is a 'schemes fit' for these positions fo Gase?

Prince also has a history of injuries which has been a concern.

Wasn't Wills being bashed for having a bunch of penalties?  I think one of the draft profiles specifically mentioned pre-snap/false start issues. 

I know we want smart, but I think smart and no penalties are two different traits.

4 false starts,  6 total penalties last year.

Good Topic. Done with all the "Top 4 OT" threads. Let's look to who is the best FIT for what we think Gase will be running.

 

But you also have EVERY OT as a scheme fit! So what's the point?

I guess it shows the depth of the class. It's just my opinion.

Seems like a lot.  Do you know how it compares to the others?  

FWIW, I am off Jones.  Not as a prospect, but the idea that his "scheme fit" trumps Thomas or the others.  He is quick, but I think your top 3 are all better athletes than him, particularly Wirfs.  I would be fine with getting him, but based on my limited knowledge, it should be well behind those guys.

Finally a thread that realizes JD is NOT going to just automatically take any of the top 4 tackles at #11. I would bet money he has, at most, 3 potential tackles at #11, more likely only 2. If one of those 2 or 3 are gone, it's WR at 11. People are crazy saying he is going to take a tackle no matter what. We have a head coach that admits he doesn't know how to use a potential future hall of fame running back. JD is not going to pick a run blocking tackle at #11 (or anywhere for that matter).

As Choon328 said above, look at the OL he picked up in FA, and apply that to the draft.

With a run on tackles in the top 10, I'm betting we get a WR at 11.

The frustration by Alabama fans with those penalties was that they were responsible for taking points off the board or in crucial situations.

Example, from the Iron Bowl game, which they lost: https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/2019/12/looking-at-the-penalty-discipline-issue-that-cost-alabama-in-iron-bowl-loss.html

False start on Jedrick Wills, 3-15 (punt)

False start on Jedrick Wills on two-point try, extra point kicked to make it 45-40.

False start on Jedrick Wills, 3-4 to 3-9, Mac Jones converts 18-yard 4th-down run (missed kick drive)

From the Oklahoma game: https://ftw.usatoday.com/2018/12/furious-nick-saban-obliterates-his-headset-after-penalty-call

On a 3rd-and-1 play from the 15-yard line, offensive lineman Jedrick Wills was whistled for a false start – infuriating Saban on the sideline.

On the very next play, Tua Tagovailoa hit Irv Smith Jr. with a touchdown pass, but the play was wiped out by a dubious illegal formation penalty called on Wills.

I think Jones is a better athlete than Thomas but Thomas is an all around better player.  I also don't think Jones makes it out of the 1st round

And how do we know that the WRs at 11 are 'scheme fits'?

And when we pass on an OT at 11 how do we know that after a run on tackles between 11 and 48 that we are not standing there with our tails in the air or scrambling to trade up for an OT.

this is just a hunch but Joe Douglas probably doesn't want to make this penalty prone dude his first ever Jets pick as GM. 

The way JD emphasized penalties in the FA's he brought in was not an accident

that being said 50/50 Wills is off the board by 11 he's a very good prospect in other ways 

i could just see this driving JD crazy

I think Jeudy, Lamb and Ruggs are all scheme fits in this system.

Your 2nd statement is why the Jets have to address the tackle position again in FA or via trade prior to the draft. 

Unless they think they can get Williams away from the Redskins after the draft using a conditional 2021 pick if they aren't able to bring a tackle in during the first few rounds of the draft. 

The one thing I know they can't do is to force a square peg into a round hole like Macc tried to do year after year.

I think they honestly may feel more comfortable going into the season with what they have than we think.  OTOH, they seem to have a bunch of "if this, then that" deals in place.  For instance Perriman signing 15 minutes after Anderson went with the Panthers.  They may have something in place with Peters conditional on what happens in the draft.  I think the same is the reason why the edge market is waiting on Clowney.  After one domino falls things are going to happen with Griffen, Ngakoue, etc.   

FWIW, this is hope and conjecture.  Nothing factual to back it up.

All of them are scheme fits. Ruggs is a burner which Douglas wants, and Lamb is explosive after the catch. Gase places high value on YAC (he loves those bubble screens). Lamb and Jeudy both fit the bill

He also drafted and signed FA to suit his coach, that is how we drafted Darron Lee 21st overall and signed Tru Johnson.

As for WR scheme fits, some of those guys you listed are similar in size to jarvis landry who apparently was not a scheme fit for gase despite catching tons of passes.

I'm not trying to be overly negative here but I do not trust the head coach and his offensive skills and I hate cutting the draft in half talent wise.

Trey Adams is far from a scheme fit. He lacks the athleticism needed. 

Wills is penalty prone.

Josh Jones is a lesser athlete than Andrew Thomas. 

The big 4 are all fits. They are all borderline elite athletes for OTs. 
 

A later guy I love for us is Jack Driscoll from Auburn. Good athlete, good pass sets.

Why would you say that?  You literally say Landry caught tons of passes.  He was by that definition a scheme fit.  His issues with Landry were that he wanted a ton of money and whined and complained about all the short routes, looking to go deep and see even more targets.  Landry was asking for so much money that the Dolphins only got a 4th and a 7th for him despite all the production and everyone knowing he was on the block.  I totally get why Gase didn't want to spend $15M on a slower slot WR when he could get 75% of the production for 1/3 the price.  Spend the money elsewhere and improve the team.

I'm not a big Gase fan, and I don't see him as "right," but he certainly used Landry in a reasonable fashion.  Landry arguably had his best seasons in Miami.  For the reasons stated above, I would expect the team to look for a cheaper replacement and dump Crowder before next season.

I agree he may not like all 4 tackles.  I do believe if the tackles he values are gone at 11, however, that he will trade down.  He will not pick WR unless he can't trade down and that represents the best value on the board.

Jarvis Landry was traded bc they didn't want to pay him.  It wasn't bc of scheme.

Becton is not a fit. His 40 time doesn't match his play on the field. You're right about Adam's,  I forgot about his combine. Wills had 6 penalties and is a premium talent.  That's not going to stop anybody from drafting him.

Becton looks large and mobile on tape. He needs to work on pass sets but he looks as active as you need. His work on the second level is beautiful stuff. Wills shouldn’t drop, he’s a great prospect.

40 time is irrelevant for a damn offensive lineman. 

Becton is definitely very athletic, especially for a man of his size. He's raw no doubt, but he's definitely a fit

Trouble with Driscoll is his wing span/arm length.

Scheme fit goes with agility and capabilities with zone blocking. Thomas isn't a top OT because of his pass blocking honestly as you listed. More so due to his gab/man blocking ability. He's a good player but would fair well with another offense. Browns and Bucs are a perfect fit if they're satisfied with his pass blocking ability.

Josh Jones, Austin Jackson, Prince Tega Wanogho fit the same mold. They fit the scheme however their run blocking leaves alot to be desire. Not the style I enjoy watching however it is what it is. It's less about mauling the defender back to the 2nd level and just stalemating them and taking the proper angles. To compensate they have they agility to keep up with the agile OLB but are prone to the bull rush due to lack of strength.

Tristan Wirfs could move according to the combine but it doesn't translate on tape. His pass blocking in the NFL could be what qualifies him as a guard. 

Mekhi Becton doesn't come from a pro style offense, however he seem good in one on one pass protection however gets killed in stunts. He can move but I guess he can trim so weight to further help him.

I love when people say Becton isn't a fit because of his poor passblocking. The guy gave up four sacks.....not last year.....but for his entire career. Over 2300 snaps and he gave up four sacks.

My big concern with Becton is whether he can keep his weight in check.

There was an interview a few months ago where he said he played last season around 350. Then he weighed in at 365 at the combine. In 2018 there were reports of him playing at over 380.

I’d like to see him get to 345-350 and stay there.

Kid has Ogden-esque upside and is an absolute freak for his size. But I think he easily has the biggest bust potential out of the consensus Top 4 OT’s.

Still, I’d be very happy if the Jets wound up with him.

When he weighed in at the combine at 364lbs he had an astonishing 17% body fat. That alone shows that he takes his conditioning serious. He's just a giant human being. He also grew 2" from high school to now......how many people keep growing taller after HS?

Yep. If he had the strength and length he’d be second rounder with his tape.

Nice job but I think you dismiss Wilson too quickly. He's a big, strong, talented kid with a lot of upside. More athletic than you give him credit for.

If I can't have one of your big 3, I would give him a hard look.

WR at #11 (my favorite is Ruggs but that's a different topic) and Wilson in Round 2 or 3 would be a nice haul.
