Alka Posted March 27, 2022 Share Posted March 27, 2022 As we all know, the Jets employ a 4-3 defense, and for that to work, we need to put pressure on the QB, as well as clogging up the middle. The Jets must draft a defensive tackle, because as it stands right now, we don't have one to replace Fatukasi. Sure, we have Rankins, who if he stays healthy, is a good player to rotate in and out of the lineup. We resigned Shephard, who is a legitimate backup and rotational player. We have Marshall, who was a rookie last season, and still unproven in my mind. But we need that stud in the middle of the defense to play along side Quinen Williams. Franklin Myers is considered a tweeter, and his official position is left defensive end. So, who is that player who we can feel comfortable with to start alongside Quinnen Williams? The answer is "we don't have anyone". The Jets might need a starting defensive tackle as much as they need an edge rusher at this point. Consider that Carl Lawson is coming back healthy (we hope), we have Franklin Myers that we paid handsomely during the season, we still have Zuniga (unproven), and we signed an edge rusher that we hope will do some things this year. Tell me I'm wrong!! 3 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
