The New York Jets draft started hot with the selection of Mekhi Becton (LT, Louisville) on Day 1. I think the selection was the right one over Tristan Wirfs who I have some questions on his ability to play OT. They stayed put and got away with a blue chip tackle for years to come.
The Jets now have picks No. 48, 68 and 79 and I think we could see some trades here on Day 2.
With big question marks at WR, outside CB and EDGE, I think that should be the focus on Rounds 2 and 3. Jets need...
With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there's still the same intrigue. Here's a look at some of the AFC South Draft Notes.
Draft Notes: Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville holds 12 picks in 2020, including two firsts (9, 20) and three fourths.
Jags have one winning season (2017) in last 12 years, and there's no end in sight to the rebuild considering the team traded CB A.J. Bouye, DE Calais Campbell and QB Nick Foles to stockpile draft picks.

With the 2020 NFL Draft just days away, the focus for the Miami Dolphins draft might be something other than what most people imagine.
The Miami Dolphins have made no secret about seeking a franchise quarterback. Since Dan Marino’s retirement in 1999, the team started 21 different quarterbacks over those 20 seasons. Only Cleveland (29) and Chicago (23) have had more starting quarterbacks over that span.
Marino remains the last Dolphins quarterback to earn Pro Bowl (1995) and All-Pro (1986) selections.
Dolphins Draft Plans
Holding three first round picks, including the No. 5 overall, seems to have the team poised to pounce on...
The Miami Dolphins entered the NFL's 2020 league year with the most cap space of any team, more than $88 million. The team opened the free agency period aggressively, signing 10 players to new deals. The Dolphins draft, though, could still remake Miami.
The Dolphins are looking to reshape their roster after a 5-11 season, first under head coach Brian Flores. Despite the spending spree, the Miami Dolphins still have a number of draft needs entering April's NFL Draft.
Dolphins Draft Needs
Under first-year head coach Brian Flores, the Dolphins looked like one of the worst teams of all-time to open the season....
I know all the focus is on the scouting combine right now, but free agency is right around the corner and for us Jets fans, the 2020 Offseason is where hope starts. It's Joe Douglas's first offseason and we are all here for it. The Jets have quite a lot of holes but fortunately, they also have a lot of cap space and some decent draft ammo.
Here is my offseason guide from roster cuts, to free agent targets (and target prices) to a draft plan that, as a Jets fan, I know it will put us back on track.
