The NY Jets will meet with a variety of prospects over the coming weeks and months as we inch closer to April’s 2021 NFL Draft. And the latest prospect they’ve reportedly met with is Oregon State running back Jermar Jefferson.

Per Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Jets are one of five teams that Jefferson has met with along with the Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers.Jefferson is the fourth reported player to have met with the Jets thus far after LSU safety JaCoby Stevens, West Virginia defensive lineman Darius Stills, and NC State defensive lineman Alim McNeill.He’s also the first of what should be many offensive players to meet with the team as the Jets are expected to overhaul the offensive side of the ball in the offseason. The running back position is certainly something that will be addressed.

What would the NY Jets be getting in Jermar Jefferson?

At 5-foot-9, 215 pounds, Jefferson is built low to the ground and a little undersized for the position. However, his soft hands and ability to create yards in open space will be very intriguing for teams.The Draft Network currently ranks Jefferson as their sixth-highest running back and their No. 96 overall prospect projecting him as somewhere around a third or fourth-round pick. However, CBS Sports doesn’t have Jefferson ranked inside their top-12 running backs.Although he’s only 5-foot-9, Jefferson packs a punch and is a tough runner. He’s someone who finishes his runs and always fights for extra yardage, even if it’s only to gain a few inches.

The California native rushed for 858 yards and seven touchdowns in just six games in 2020 while averaging a career-high 6.5 yards per carry. The shortened season prevented him from having what could have been a record-breaking campaign.Still, he received first-team All-Pac 12 honors for his performance this past season and it helped him get on the radar of a number of NFL teams. The Jets are clearly one of them.The Jets currently have just two running backs under contract for 2021, La’Mical Perine and Ty Johnson. There’s a decent chance they bring back Josh Adams, who is a restricted free agent, but look for them to address the position in the offseason as well.

While free agency remains a very viable option, don’t rule out the Jets taking a running back in the draft as well. Jefferson makes some sense as a mid-round target, especially given his experience in a zone-heavy run offense at Oregon State.Don’t be surprised if the Jets target Jefferson on Day 3 of the draft.

Yes

Don't know if you're familiar with me but I'm a musician and obviously a huge fan of music. I've seen Ozzy probably eight to 10 times in concert. My memory may be a little off here but it was 1993 Ozzy had a broken ankle and they postponed the show that he was doing in the club underneath Madison Square Garden. I believe it was called the no more tours tour? Don't remember it was called The Paramount or the Palladium at the time.

It was an incredible night one of the best shows I've ever seen. Zakk Wylde up at the bar across the street and stayed there all night. The kind of night movies are made of.

I got on the train at Ronkonkoma and walk through the entire train and told everybody to go back to the last few cars. By the time the ticket puncher guy got there he opened the door and just shook his head and left LOL. I'm pretty sure I was naked laying on the luggage rack. People were tripping and smoking dust and passing around bottles of Jack Daniels. When we got to the club they had girls in lingerie hanging around as you walk through a tunnel. Randy Castillo did one of the best drum solos I ever saw that night. Keep in mind the venue is very small so they all had to be on. Zack did about a 20-minute guitar solo that night and Ozzy was awesome. I've seen Ozzy when he's not awesome and his voice is cracking that night he had power like he was 28 years old.

Anyway me and my guitar player wind-up stranded at The Babylon train station cuz there's a delay, and we're all f***** up. All of a sudden we see these two chicks walking up the stairs towards us the blond is dressed in all black leather jumpsuit and the redhead is in an all red jumpsuit driving a red Camaro. They asked if we were the guys from Powertripp, the name of our pretty popular original rock band on the island at the time and suddenly we went from freezing cold standing outside in December to having Superman " S " on our chests lol. We got a ride home from Jen and Jen that night and hooked up obviously and the rest is history.

I'm pretty sure it was right around or on Ozzy's birthday which I believe is December 3rd but it may have been the 6th. Oh what a night early December back in 1993! LMFAO

That reminds me that I think somebody still has a Polaroid of us taking pictures with those half naked chicks in the tunnel. s*** now I got to go call Danny!

Anyway Zack was really cool that night. I didn't harass him as there was enough of that going on I basically bought him a drink gave me a wink and a nod from across the bar.

Good times-

I really can't see the Jets investing major resources in RB this year.

I think they add a cheap FA who fits the system - maybe someone like Matt Breida who did well with the 49ers - and adding a rookie in the mid to late rounds to add to Ty Johnson, Perine and Josh Adams.

A decent running game helps the passing game and there are some really good RB's available in this draft. 

We struggle in the Red Zone scoring TD's a quality RB fixes all that. 

Etienne or Harris teamed up with Ty Johnson gives us some offense.
