The Jets traded up from No. 6 to No. 3 in the first round of this year’s draft with the expectation that the team is going to pick a quarterback for the third time since Mike Maccagnan became the team’s General Manager in 2015.
Barnes remains one of the league’s more puzzling players — not quite the same isolation-heavy scorer he was last season, but not all that much different. He can still be too tentative with the ball:
If you want to know why Payton has never developed into the plus defender he has the tools to become, it’s stuff like this — plus his egregious out-of-scheme gambling:
Psst: Phoenix is dead last in both points scored and allowed per possession. That double — known as Bobcatting in honor of the tanktastic 2011-12 Bobcats — is a rare accomplishment.
Gruden said he wants Cooper to be ready to play in 2018 like he did in 2015 and 2016.
The Giants can’t rely on Eli Apple as much as they were hoping, and their new regime has no ties to the former first-round pick who has had locker room issues. This might be early for Jackson, but some teams are extremely high on the playmaker. He could complete what on paper looks like a talented defense.
The Redskins have invested draft picks and free-agent dollars across their offense, and they’ll likely sit back and see whether those moves pay dividends. That means they probably will address their defense early in the draft, and their defensive front seven, especially the line, is a good place to continue building.
Landry had a down 2017 season thanks to injuries and inconsistency, but he is an edge rusher worthy of first-round selection. The Packers can’t rely on Clay Matthews on the perimeter much longer.
Quinn isn’t happy about it. And yet he is.
