NY Jets: Insight into what kinds of players Joe Douglas will add in 2020

FEBRUARY 19, 2020

What kinds of players will NY Jets general manager Joe Douglas look to add this offseason? Here are the full details on his thought process.

What will the NY Jets roster look like in 2020?

It’s a complicated question because the man making those decisions, Gang Green general manager Joe Douglas has never been a GM before.

Which means the kinds of players he’ll look to draft or the players he’d be interested in during free agency is shrouded in mystery.

We spoke with NY Jets team reporter Ethan Greenberg on The Jets Zone podcast to get some insight into this very question:

“I asked a lot of people down in Mobile at the Senior Bowl who cover the league that very question. What types of players should NY Jets fans expect to be on the roster next season?

The words that came back to me more so than any other were tough, competitive, and intelligent.

Those three words are probably the core of what Joe Douglas is looking for. After speaking with Rex Hogan, assistant general manager of the NY Jets, the other thing they’re looking for is good guys.

So they aren’t just necessarily trying to add the most talented guys to the team, but they’re looking for guys that can fit the culture of what they’re trying to build.

When you think back to our 1 Jets Drive series, the thing Joe always says is he wants guys who hate to lose more than they love to win. Those are the kinds of guys he’ll want to add to this team through free agency and of course the 2020 NFL Draft.”

Prior to accepting his role as the general manager of the NY Jets, Joe Douglas spent some serious time in some pretty impressive locations.

Joe spent 14 years as a scout for the Baltimore Ravens and served many different roles under that title from 2000 through 2014.

Then in 2015 he received a promotion by the Chicago Bears and was elevated to the Director of College Scouting. After spending one season there in the windy city, Douglas went back to the east coast to join the Philadelphia Eagles front office.

From 2016 through 2019, Douglas served as the Vice President of Player Personnel and helped the Eagles win its first Super Bowl in franchise history.

All in all, Douglas is a three-time Super Bowl champion and has loads of experience with some of the top NFL evaluators in the entire league. This offseason with the NY Jets will be his first opportunity to put his imprint on the roster through free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft.

Unless Fields falls on his face against Alabama I’m all in. I hope JD takes him.

There would be no shame in having a rough game against Alabama.  They're so far ahead of the rest of the college football landscape its as if they're the only FBS school and everyone else looks like the FCS by comparison.

If you guys actually watched the Ohio state Clemson game the Clemson defense totally sold out to stop Sermon who only had 193 yards rushing that’s why Fields WRs were wide open all game in man to man

Yeah he may have a rough game against Bama but if given weapons like Berrios, Jeff Smith, and Gore he would shine in the NFL.

I must have missed the news where we were trading away Denzel Mims and then decided we're spending no money or picks on skill players this offseason?  Please provide those links.

Yes, but he accurately hit them in multiple cases on deep patterns when in those cases he had to get the ball over the CB and S. The kid is accurate and has a pretty strong arm.

All this Fields hype is making the fins pick at 3 the most valuable pick in the draft...

That's nice and all, and Miami does have a loaded roster that  will only get better.  But Fields >>>> Tua.

TL is going #1. With the hype from Fields now the Jets will have to take him. That leaves Miami in the drivers seat for the draft.

Drivers seat for the 3rd most coveted prospect

Sewell is a much, much better prospect than Fields/Wilson but doesn’t present the same need for the Jets.

Other than the fake roll out to the TE not a single TD was wide open- at all.

Really depends on what you consider wide open.  To me those TD's guys were wide open.  Certainly NFL wide open.

Plus he's not just talking about the TD's.  He had an empty pocket and 5 or 6 seconds to cleaning throw and his receivers were wide open all day.

People making this out like it was some masterful performance just weren't really watching the game.

Is this very different than what Lawrence has been provided?

Which QB looked better Friday night to you?

Ha ok- whatever you say. There is a difference between open and “wide open”. Every single TD required a pin point throw. If Lawrence had that exact game he would have been put in Canton.

I hreally hope JD has the intelligence to trade the pick ...

There is Lawrence and there is everyone else.

... that is unless a Leprechaun drops Lawrence in our laps like a stork.

BS fluff article. There will be 4 months of evaluations ahead of us, and then a decision will be made.

In terms of QB the HC and OC opinions will factor heavily.

They may very well choose Fields, they may not

Also literally 100% of GMS prefer players that are  tough, competitive, and intelligent.

 

A fluff article from last year at that
