The New York Jets NFL draft is complete, and if one thing is extremely obvious, it’s that Joe Douglas stuck to his principles.

One year ago, New York Jets fans were hyped. The organization had brought them Le’Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley, young beastly Quinnen Williams courtesy of the NFL draft and fresh uniforms highlighted by a new color called “Gotham Green.”

The party was on. … until it wasn’t.

NFL teams that win the offseason splash rarely come through the following regular season. Winning free agency simply means that go-for-broke team had the money necessary to sign star players. Money to such a degree shouldn’t come available too often—unless none of your draft picks are developing en route to a second contract earned.

Up until this offseason, that was the way the Jets were. Today, the organization cements its new persona, attitude and shift the fashion for which they walk, all thanks to the change at the top that controversially happened after the 2019 draft.

Joe Douglas did not disappoint. The man Baltimore Ravens employees once called “The Turk” was also extremely predictable.

This draft also yielded a sixth round pick in 2021 and Quincy Wilson CB. Quincy is a former second round pick, but now a reclamation project. Gregg Williams do your magic.
Wilson may have killed the Logan Ryan Deal saving the Jets 6 to 7 million.
