I'd get a Rick Bowness jersey but he's a coach (so he doesn't have a number) plus he's employed by a hockey team.  Though I guess this would work too:

Was just saying to somebody that one of the more intriguing things to me this season is where Ruckert finishes the season on the depth chart.  Does he leapfrog either of the two guys in front of him?  Wouldn't be shocked if he did.

It's a Jets post.  With the name "CanadienJetsFan", you should appreciate it all the more!

Natural hands and a finishers mind set, a perfect

combination for what teams should look for in a TE

We should also wait and see what happens with Kenny Yebowa and his #88, Ruckart might want that back as far as Jersey number.

I think Yeboah might getting overlooked by some here.  He looked real good in limited action toward the end of the season.  I can see him being CJs eventual replacement and Ruckert, being more the inline blocker, backing up (and eventually replacing) Conklin.   Any way you look at it, our TE room has been improved dramatically.  For the record I was in favor of Ruckert over McBride.  Many of my mocks had us taking him in the 3 or 4th.   Imagine my excitement with JD made it a reality!

How much playing time is this kid gonna get? I kind of see him buried on the depth chart as the #3 TE. Hopefully he can develop into the #1 eventually 

The kid's going to get a lot of time on the field.  There are NFL guru's who feel that the 2- tight end offense is the Best in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers, who the Jets seem to mirror in certain ways, have used the 2 tight end look to dominate their conference in years past. I would say that the 2-tight end set is a 3-4 beater, in that it can be used to neutralize the pass rush.  If this is the case with the Jets, then Ruckert should get plenty of playing time.  Why would the Jets go out and get 2 tight ends in free agency, then use their 4th round pick to pick up a 3rd tight end, unless they planned to do exactly what I'm talking about?

I’ve been saying the same thing for awhile now. Lots of 12/21 personnel, with the second TE lined up on the line or at H-back or FB. They will run rushes and passes from the same formations, with RPOs and/or play action. The obvious goal is to make the offense as friendly for Zach as humanly possible. Extra blockers and big, short to medium range receivers. This is also why I’ve been saying that I’m not sure that they’ll carry more than five WRs this year. They’re very solid 1-4, with either Jeff Smith or Mims at #5. Four TEs and four RBs seems likely. 
 
Also interested to see what the playbook looks like this year. Last year, the Jets had (I believe) the fewest TE targets in the league. That’s definitely changing. I know they’re very high on Ruckert, and they won’t be afraid to play him as long as he’s ready. Thing is, TE generally has one of the longest development times in football, often being coached by the receivers and OL coaches as well as a TE coach.

Yes, and I think that's great.  Imagine, the Jets can afford to let Ruckert develop at his own pace.  He can actually earn his playing time without being put on the field because all the other choices were worse.

There's a lot to be said for earning your playing time.  There's a lot to be said for the team (and fans) not being exposed to losses due to any players learning curve.

Saleh said Gardner had to earn his playing time.  We know that isn't really true.  But it is for Ruckert and that just great.

He’s caught two passes in his career.  He has a slight chance, maybe, to make the roster without an injury or two.  He more than likely resumes his place on the practice squad

You're spot on!

What a story. Imagine if he becomes what we’ve been looking for in the position even longer than searching for a QB. I wonder though… will we all still love him when he expects to be paid?

Fortunately even elite TEs are rarely very expensive.  We’ll be able to save a lot of that sweet, sweet cap space.

Bought one for my GF and her daughter. Daughter is a junior there.  We are going to the OSU/Indiana game and will probably buy a Mangold OSU jersey.
