Mike Maccagnan struck early with deals for Ryan Clady and Brian Winters, however, depth means everything in the NFL, especially on the O-line.

Welcome to the 2017 NFL Offseason! The time of year where New York Jets’ fans put the bitterness of the past season behind them and optimistically look forward to the NFL Draft and free agency.

Who are we trying to kid? It’s the time of year where we criticize everything about the past season, examine every player move that didn’t pan out and start beating up the general manager for the “busts” he selected in the draft.



Woody Johnson had preached “patience” and “building through the draft” in his end of the season press conference, earlier in the offseason. It will be interesting to see how much patience Johnson will have with his general manager.

Nonetheless, ESNY wants to provide the Jets fan to all the options Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles will have during the 2017 edition of “make my team better.” 


Over the next several weeks, Elite Sports will be providing comprehensive coverage of the events leading up to the NFL Draft.

In this week’s edition, we’ll look at the best choice at offensive line in each round of the draft. There may be names you know, and names you don’t. The Jets will be fortunate to grab one of these players during what will be a large part of the rebuild that will occur within the organization.
