Draft Night is Dark and Full of Terrors

Mina and Domonique Foxworth talk about why the Giants should not take a quarterback with either of their first round picks (14:15), whether or not Dwayne Haskins would be an upgrade over Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay (23:14), if they'd rather have unlimited queso or unlimited salsa (37:53), and if Domonique would hug Roger Goodell if he were a draft prospect this year (1:08:20).

Ideal draft scenarios for the Jets: 1. They drop one spot to four, swapping places with the Raiders. The Jets would get the Raiders' second-round pick (35), filling a void on their draft card. They'd have to send their second third-rounder (93) to Oakland in the trade, based on the trade chart. The Raiders are said to be smitten with NT Ed Oliver, and perhaps they'd be willing to jump a spot, thinking the Jets might take him. At four, the Jets would have a choice of DT Quinnen Williams or LB Josh Allen AND they'd have a pick in each of the first four rounds. 2. DE Nick Bosa unexpectedly falls to them at three. 3. The Jets stay at three and draft Allen. (This is my choice. My hunch is they'd prefer Williams over Allen.)

The Jets-Ed Oliver buzz continues to get louder. Would GM Mike Maccagnan really take an undersized nose tackle with the third pick in the draft? Like a lot of GMs, Maccagnan puts an emphasis on traits, which would make Oliver an unconventional pick because of his size (6–1 7/8, 287) and short arms (fifth percentile among DLM at the combine). But Oliver has some special qualities (rare explosiveness), so maybe the Jets think he can be the next Aaron Donald. It's hard to believe he'd pick Oliver over DT Quinnen Williams, who checks every box, but one personnel man told me Maccagnan really likes Oliver.

Everybody knows the Jets need an edge rusher. Their DEs and OLBs beat their blocks within 2.5 seconds 18% of the time last season, per ESPN's Pass-Rush Win Rate using NFL Next Gen Stats — 23rd among all teams. The Jets haven't had a player with double-digit sacks since Mo Wilkerson in 2015. They can address the need with the third pick (Nick Bosa or Josh Allen). If not there, could they go back to the Seahawks in an attempt to trade for DE Frank Clark (franchise tag)? That seems unlikely under the current circumstances. The Jets don't have enough ammo (no second-round pick) and they couldn't do that trade on the clock because they presumably would want to negotiate a long-term deal. Still an intriguing option, though. The Jets had interest at the start of free agency.

The Jets have the second-best odds in the AFC East, but the Patriots will have a scheduling edge for both meetings. The first meeting, the Jets will be on a short week, coming off a Monday Night Football Game against the Browns. The second meeting, the Patriots are coming off a Thursday Night Football game and will have extra rest.

File this under, "Next Man Up." Adam Gase, who addressed the Jets for the first time last week, left a clear message to his players: He's gunning for the Patriots. Said LB C.J. Mosley: "He's going for that one team that's been winning every single year in the division. He said that's one of the main reasons he came here. We all believe that. And the new additions to the team, we're pretty much here for the same reason" Every Jets coach in recent years had a different take on the Patriots. Rex Ryan relished he challenge, Todd Bowles downplayed it. The common denominator: They all failed.

The NFL schedule will be released Wednesday at 8 p.m ET. As a reminder, here are the Jets' non-divisional opponents: HOME — Giants, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Oakland. AWAY — Baltimore, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Washington and Jacksonville. In terms of air miles, it's the shortest road schedule in franchise history (6,688 miles), according to the Jets.

Could the Jets make a blockbuster trade for Seattle DE Frank Clark? Rumors are swirling that Clark, who has the franchise tag, could be traded somewhere, Pro Football Talk said Sunday night. I do believe the Jets had some interest weeks ago, but that interest has cooled. They need an edge rusher and they have enough cap room for a $20M/year contract. Problem is, both the Jets (six picks) and Seahawks (four) have limited draft capital, making them less-than-ideal trading partners. Plus, the Jets can draft an edge rusher with the third pick, and he'd cost less than half the price of Clark.
