New York Jets’ Greatest Strengths & Weaknesses Heading Into OTAs

2nd Greatest Strength: Defensive Line

If there’s one position on this roster that needs zero help, it’s the defensive line.

The names are very well known. Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams are just the start. Free agent additions Steve McLendon and Jarvis Jenkins only make it scarier.

The only issue with this group is trying to get them all on the field at once.

If Bowles plays a true base 3-4, only two of the three beasts can be on the field. If he goes to a 4-3, Big Mo could slide to the edge and do a solid job.


In passing downs, Big Mo will once again have to slide outside.

Even with Mo unhappy with where he stands contractually, this position is golden for 2016. One of the best, if not the best in the league.
