Top 5 Players To Watch On The Jets This Offseason

1. Leonard Williams, DE USC 6'5 302
2. Dion Barnes, LB Penn State 6'4 255
3. Durrell Eskridge, S Syracuse 6'3 207
4. Bryce Petty, QB Baylor 6'3 230
5. Julian Howsare, LB Clarion 6'3 255

Grading The New York Jets 2015 Draft Class

Round 1. Leonard Williams, DE USC: He was the best player in this years draft, and was not getting passed the Jets. He has the athleticism to stuff the run in the backfield and still get a pass rush. Grade A-

Round 2. Devin Smith, WR Ohio State: He tracks the deep ball as well as or even better then most the receivers in this years draft. He had at Ohio State last season a 28.2 yard average per reception. Grade B+

Round 3. Lorenzo Mauldin, OLB Louisville: You can't help but root for him because of all that he's been through, and he gives you all he's got game in and game out. Grade B-

Round 4. Bryce Petty, QB Baylor: The Jets add a developmental quarterback to challenge Geno Smith. He still needs to get used to taking snaps from under center again and calling plays in the huddle. Grade C

Round 5. Jarvis Harrison, G Texas A&M: He has the size to be a starter in the league after a season or two. He is a project with a good upside in athleticism and awareness. Grade C-

Round 7 Deon Simon, NT Northwestern State (LA) : He is an older prospect (24) who has dealt with a knee injury. The Jets get a big bodied 2-gapper this late in the draft. Grade D

Overall Grade: C+

Top 5 Players To Watch At The Steelers OTA'S

1. Devin Gardner, WR/QB Michigan. He has good hand can make tough catches on jump balls and comeback routes. Maybe a nice player to use for trick plays and for the 2-point plays. He could be one to beat out Landry Jones for the #3 quarterback job.

2. Cameron Stingily, RB Northern Iowa. He is a power back that can get the short yards like on 4-1 and 4-inches, very good pass protection and good hands in the passing game.

3. B.J. Finny, G/C Kansas State. He is a very interesting player to make the 53-man roster at Chris Hubbard's spot of the 8th offensive linemen. He has very good footwork and good punch off the snap, Has very good awareness to pickup blitzing linebackers and defensive line twists and stunts.

4. Mike Thornton,  NT Georgia. He is a underside Defensive tackle at 6'1 and 296 to play a 3-4 nose tackle, but could move over to 3-tech or 5-tech defensive end in a 3-4. Very good run stopper but needs to work on getting a pass rush going. He will get to quarterback sometimes.

5. Eli Rodgers, WR Louisville. He had a very productive college career at Louisville when Teddy Bridgewater was the quarterback. He has good hands, speed, and can play the slot and outside receiver spots. He had 45 receptions last season for 525 yards and 3 touchdowns.
