Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter

It's been a common refrain this season that the Jets need to overhaul their entire offensive line. However, they don't really have an urgent need to address the tackle positions in the short term, as the team has confidence in Kelvin Beachum and Brandon Shell. However, both Beachum and Shell are out of contract at the end of the year. While Shell is a candidate to sign a lucrative extension, Beachum will be 30 in June, so the Jets perhaps need to find his heir apparent.

Much of the attention in this draft cycle has been centered around Alabama's Jonah Williams at the tackle position, with Jawaan Taylor from Florida considered the primary alternative to Williams. However, Washington State's Andre Dillard's stock seems to be on the rise.
Could Dillard actually be the ideal fit to be the Jets' long-term solution on the blind side? Let's review what he brings to the table.

Projected Pick: Potential top 15

Stats

College (career): 39 straight starts at left tackle, only surrendered one sack in 2018
Combine: 24 bench press reps, 4.96 in the 40-yard dash

Pros

Dillard's stock has risen since his outstanding combine performance, which saw him post the top mark for all offensive linemen in the short shuttle and broad jump, along with the best mark for all tackles in the three-cone drill and 40-yard dash.

However, Dillard is not just a workout warrior as much of his rise has been based on more experts getting exposure to his impressive film. Dillard's athleticism shows up on tape, but it's his smooth footwork, balance and ability to mirror against speed rushers off the edge that make him arguably the most polished pass-protector in this class.

In addition, his athletic ability enables him to get out in space to block at the second level or out in front of a screen pass.

Dillard is also regarded as a player with exceptional character, a high football IQ and positive leadership qualities.

Cons

Dillard's major weakness is that he lacks experience as a run-blocker. Washington State coach Mike Leach is not regarded as someone who prepares his offensive linemen for the rigors of NFL run blocking sets. In Leach's pass heavy offense, Dillard would rarely be required to fire off the line, so he doesn't have much experience of working at the point of attack. Instead, the Cougars would run a lot of draw plays where Dillard's assignment would be as more of a decoy from a pass blocking set.

It's not impossible for a good pass protector to develop their run blocking abilities over the course of their pro career, though. That was what the Jets were able to achieve with D'Brickashaw Ferguson.

In addition to his lack of run blocking experience, Dillard's pass blocking also needs some technical refinement. This is most evident in the inconsistency of his hand placement. Scouts will love his physical ability as a pass blocker and coaches will feel confident they can mold him into a more polished player but there's obviously no guarantee that he will develop as planned.
All of these points suggest that Dillard's ideal career path might be to sit and learn throughout most of his rookie season, so he would fit best with a team that has a long-term need rather than coveting someone who they need to contribute as a rookie.

Conclusions

While it's not uncommon for an unheralded tackle to rise late and end up getting drafted in the top three, Dillard isn't currently a viable option for the Jets with the third pick. However, if they trade down and acquire some extra picks, he could be ideal for what they need.

The other top tackle prospects are arguably better suited to the right side, but the Jets may already have Shell in their long-term plans at that spot. However, with Dillard capable of playing the left side and the Jets having the luxury of not needing him to start right away, he seems like a better fit.

The Jets may opt to wait until next year to try and find their franchise left tackle of the future. However, tackles that are capable of protecting the blindside don't grow on trees, so there might not be one readily available. They may end up forced to extend Beachum and hope he can hold down the role for a year or two more, so if they do get a chance to find someone to fill that role, perhaps they should take it.

Ultimately, if Dillard goes in the first half of the first round, that's a high pick to use on a developmental project, but he could represent good value later on.

The Jets have won back-to-back games. Aside from the scoreboard showing them with more points in both of those outings, another thing has stood out, too.

Featured running back Le'Veon Bell has played less and less in the Jets' last two games.

Bell has averaged 21 touches between those two games, but the numbers aren't there. He's averaged 2.6 yards per carry and factoring to that are season-lows in snaps played in both games.

Jets rookie cornerback Blessuan Austin was the Jets highest-rated defender in the team's Week 11 win over the Redskins on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. 

Austin made his NFL debut in Week 10 against the Giants, making three tackles and forcing a fumble. On Sunday against Washington, he was targeted six times, allowing just three catches for nine yards. He also chipped in with three tackles.

"He's not afraid," Gase said of Austin last week. "He's not shy of confidence. He's confident in himself. He did a lot of good stuff. It was good to see him around the ball."

Jamal Adams got a lot of laughs a few weeks ago when he compared himself to Tom Brady and Aaron Donald, and a few more when he refused to back down from those words. His point, though, was serious - that he's really important to the Jets, and he should be treated that way.

The last two weeks he made that clear on the field.

In fact, it'll be hard to find a better two-game stretch in Adams' three-year NFL career. He had three sacks on Sunday in the Jets' 34-17 win over the Redskins, and for a second straight week was making plays all over the field. He's now had five sacks in the last two weeks, six in the last three, and that season-total of six is a Jetsrecord for a defensive back.

Scripted plays helping Darnold 00:01:56
New York Jets head coach Adam Gase explains how the communication between him and Sam Darnold has improved in scripting plays on gameday.

The Jets started their blowout loss to the Patriots in Week 7 with an interception two plays into the game. Since then, the Jets have opened their last four games in a row with touchdowns. 

So what's different? Opening drives by NFL teams are often scripted. The ensuing one might be as well. 

But quarterback Sam Darnold isn't crediting a script for the Jets' early-game successes. Instead, it's all about building the right beat coming out of the gate for Gang Green's offense, the quarterback said on Monday.

The Jets find themselves in a two-game win streak, and technically their playoff hopes are still alive. They will continue to focus on this season, but it was probably hard not to see what happened this weekend in college football that could alter the NFL Draft next year.

Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa had "No. 1 Draft pick" written all over him heading into Mississippi State. However, he suffered a brutal hip dislocation that not only ended his season, but has now put his career in potential danger. 

Many 2020 NFL mock drafts had Tagovailoa slated to go to the Bengals first overall, but with his draft stock now busted, things have definitely shaken up.

The Jets had offensive line news heading into their Week 11 meeting with the Washington Redskins and then left the 34-17 win with a bit more.

On Saturday, the Jets placed center Ryan Kalil on their injured reserve list, ending his season. A day prior, New York head coach Adam Gase didn't sound like that was going to happen as he said on Friday that Kalil did not have any sort of setback after missing two-straight games due to a knee injury.

Gase addressed that roster move for the first time on Monday but was mostly mum on the decision.

Sam Darnold knows from experience what life as an NFL rookie quarterback is like.

So after Dwayne Haskins struggled for the Redskins in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets, Darnold sought out Washington's first-year signal caller at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, and shared some words of advice.

"I just told him after the game to keep his head up," Darnold said. "No matter what people say, the doubters, people who are going to say anything bad about him, I just said, 'Walk it out, man. Just continue to go to work. And if you go to work every single day, it'll be all right.'"

Ryan Griffin gave Sam Darnold the go-to target that the Jets needed in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Washington Redskins.

As the second-year quarterback completed 19 of 30 passes (63.3 percent) for 293 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to one interception, the veteran tight end was New York's leading receiver with five receptions for 109 yards (21.8 average) and a touchdown.

Griffin, who caught all five passes Darnold targeted him on and hauled in a long of 45 yards, buried the Redskins (1-9) with 36 seconds left in the second quarter when he caught his 16-yard touchdown pass to put the Jets (3-7) ahead, 20-3, at halftime.

Crowder on beating the Redskins 00:01:15
Jamison Crowder talks to Jeane Coakley after the Jets beat his former team, the Redskins. Crowder scored a 29-yard touchdown.

He was a man the Redskins drafted 105th overall back in 2015 out of Duke -- someone they believed would be their secret weapon in the passing game for years to come. 

But, on Sunday in Washington D.C., Jamison Crowder was handing it to his former employer instead. 

The Jets took down the lowly Redskins, 34-17, on the road, and Crowder played a big part in that. He hauled in five receptions for 76 yards with a 29-yard touchdown as the big highlight from his performance.

It was a career day for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on Sunday against the Redskins, as the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft threw for a personal best four touchdowns in the win.

Darnold was 19-of-30 passing for 293 yards to go along with four touchdowns and an interception. He averaged 9.8 yards per attempt, a big time improvement from his season average of 6.4 yards per attempt. 

He finished the game with a quarterback rating of 121.3, which is the second highest of his career and best rating in a game this season. His career-high quarterback rating of 128.4 came in Week 16 of the 2018 season against the Green Bay Packers. Darnold's previous season-high rating of 113.8 came in the team's Week 6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The game against the Giants wasn't a fluke. Sam Darnold really is back on track.

The Jets' franchise quarterback had one of his finest games of the season on Sunday, shredding the awful Washington Redskins in a 34-17 win. He completed 19-of-30 passes for 293 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.

Granted, it was against the Redskins and they are a truly bad team. But the 22-year-old Darnold showed a lot of the things that made people think he was destined for greatness before he began to regress earlier this season. He made a lot of throws outside the pocket, which has always been his specialty. He showed patience and leadership in the pocket, and some fantastic throws.

Colin Kaepernick has been a lightning rod in recent years and his opportunity to finally workout for NFL teams on Saturday went no differently. 

After a disagreement about the way the workout would go down in Atlanta, Kaepernick moved the time and location.

Per a release from the NFL, at 2:30 p.m., Kaepernick, upset with the lack of media viewing allowed for the workout, moved the event an hour away from the original location and slated it for a 4 p.m. start. The new location also included a live stream of his workout.

Jets vs Skins preview 00:01:08
With QB Sam Darnold seemingly back in the groove, the Jets look to make it two wins in a row when they face the Redskins on Sunday.

Like much of his team's 2019 season, things haven't gone according to plan for Jets running back Le'Veon Bell

Brought in by the team's former front office led by then-general manager Mike Maccagnan, Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets this offseason after sitting out last season due to a contract dispute with the Steelers. The plan was a Bell-Sam Darnold one-two punch on the Jets offense. 

Easier said than done so far.

"Guys have just put their head down and go to work," Adam Gase said on Friday. "Once we hit Wednesday, we put last week behind us. Our guys know, and we talked about it before, we got to get ready for the next one because that's the only one that matters.

"You never want to take a step back, you want to be able to look at your season and say, 'Hey, we're getting better as we go,' and then you're playing the best football at the end of the year. That's why to me these last seven games are so important. Keep trending upward, we don't want to be peaks and valleys."

The saddest thing about the current state of the Jets is that this was supposed to be the year they arrived. After nine years of waiting for a playoff game, after enduring three years of rebuilding under ex-GM Mike Maccagnan, it was all supposed to come together in 2019.

Not only didn't that happen, but now the Jets appear to be on the brink of a rebuilding project again.

Enunwa played in just one game for the Jets this season, suffering his second neck injury of his career in a Week 1 loss to Buffalo before heading to Injured Reserve.
