New York Jets Draft Review – Rounds 5 – 7

ROUND 5 {#150 Overall}
TE/FB/H-Back Jason Pociask
University of Wisconsin

ROUND 6 {#189 Overall}
CB Drew Coleman
Texas Christian University

ROUND 7 {#220 Overall}
DL Titus Adams
University of Nebraska

With the departure of Jerald Sowell and BJ Askew not showing much progress heretofore, Jason Pociask was likely drafted with FB in mind. This kid is a terrific blocker and it’s actually something he loves to do. Wasn’t used as much of a receiver, Owen Daniels was their heralded pass catching tight-end at Wisconsin.  Pociask has nice hands by all accounts and can possibly develop into a decent short yardage/redzone option, also as both as a TE and an H-Back.

That or a legit blocking tight end who actually loves to block {kind of rare nowadays, when everyone wants to be a Chief but no one wants to be an Indian}. Oh yeah, and Pociask did play some FB at Wisconsin so he is familiar with that position.

I don’t know much about Coleman, but I think it’s the right approach in RD 6. Coleman is fast, some say 4.4. But Coleman says he runs in the 4.3’s.  Either way adding some speed at nickel/dime is never a bad idea in the later rounds. Not very big, but close to 5′ 8″ and that’s not exactly a smurf either. Not a bad size/speed ratio for RD 6 if you ask me.

Coleman is a converted RB who has only been a Corner for a short time, no doubt in need of some technique work, but he might have landed in the right place because Mangini did an outstanding job at developing DB’s in New England and even successfully deployed Troy Brown at the nickel/dime with some technique tweaking.

Lastly, Titus Adams is a 305 pounder who can probably add more bulk if he works hard. Supposedly a very good run stuffer, but not much of a pass rusher. Some folks believe he’s a nice fit at 3-4 DE while he offers the versatility {and size} to play his natural position of DT as well.

There are mixed reviews on Adams. Scouts inc. {Russ Lande} really liked his upside, while other were not as kind. The best you can hope for in RD 7 is a kid who has a chance and that appears to be a fair assessment in regards to Adams. The one knock is work ethic, so that might be worth watching.  If he works hard there’s a chance he can develop into a contributor along the defensive line and like I said, you can’t ask for much more than that in RD 7.

I hope you all enjoyed this years draft review. As a diehard Jet fan and a passionate draftnik its something I take very serious, so I gave you my best effort. And please bear in mind, these are all projections, opinions are sure to vary from pick to pick, but we all want the same thing {for the Jets to hit a homerun} and reasonable Jet fans can respectfully disagree on certain picks.

Thank You,
Glenny B
