Opening Statement…

Alright, first off this week (Santonio) Holmes had surgery (on Wednesday) (and Josh) Mauga had surgery (today), so both seem to be doing well.  (Darrelle) Revis now, is going to be scheduled for next week.  If you need more details, on all those things, obviously, Bruce (Speight) will let you know. Now, with that being said, I know I had said before about Darrelle, that I would like to wait for him to have surgery whether we place him on IR or not.  Unfortunately, really with our time situation, we had Eric Smith being out this week, we’re going to need that roster spot. When you looked at it, you can designate guys and all that, when I said if it was a 0.002 percent chance, well it’s not that high. In the best interest of really the organization and Darrelle, we will place Darrelle on IR.  It won’t be a designated for return, so that would be it.  I was kind of holding out hope, but the more information we got, the more you realize that that wouldn’t be good for Darrelle either.  We will place him on injured reserve.

Guys that are doubtful for the game, all these guys, Sione Po’uha, Kenrick Ellis, John Conner, Clyde Gates and Eric Smith.  Po’uha with a low back, Kenrick Ellis, knee, Conner, hamstring, Gates, shoulder, Eric Smith, knee.  So all those guys will be doubtful. Nick Mangold was limited today in practice with an ankle. He will be questionable for the game.  (I’m) definitely hopeful he plays. All these other guys are probable. Every one of them practiced full with the exception of Stephen Hill. He was limited today, but all these guys are listed as probable. That’s Aaron Berry with ribs, (Antonio) Cromartie, shoulder, Nick Bellore, shoulder, (Mark) Sanchez, low back, Calvin Pace, achilles, Brandon Moore, hip, (Matt) Slauson knee, Austin Howard, back, Jeff Cumberland, ribs, LaRon Landry, heel, (Jeremy) Kerley, finger and illness, David Harris, hamstring, Bart Scott, toe, Dustin Keller, Bryan Thomas (and) Stephen Hill all with hamstrings. So all of them are probable.  I thought today’s practice (was) really high spirited. Guys were flying around.  I think we’re loose. I like what we’re doing.  (There are) guys still watching video right now, so we’re trying to eliminate the self-inflicted wounds and then make it a physical contest and we’ll see what happens.  With that, it’s been really a good week of practice.

On if Holmes had surgery…

Yes.

On what type of surgery Holmes had…

Like I said, Bruce will handle all the surgery questions.

On if they were optimistic after Holmes’ surgery…

Oh yeah, everything, both the (surgeries), Josh Mauga’s as well.  We’re anticipating, and assuming really, that these guys will be full-go when we come back in the offseason.

On if he thinks Holmes and Mauga will be ready for the offseason…

I do.

On if Revis being placed on IR will take affect the roster this week…

Yes, it will affect the roster this week.

On whether they have made a roster move yet…

Not yet, but it’ll be either later today or tomorrow that we’ll fill that roster spot.

On if any of the players listed as doubtful on the injury list are possible…

I’d say they’re doubtful, and you know us with doubtful, that really means doubtful. (smiling)

On the challenge of playing an opponent that is playing for something bigger than the game…

I think with us, obviously, Chuck’s (Pagano) a personal friend of mine.  We coached together, he coached my brother for years and years, and I just think the world of him.  But with that said, we have our own things we are playing for, and one of those is, we need a win in the worst way. I certainly understand where they’re coming from and the fact they want to win for their coach. We want to win for each other, we want to win for our fans and that’s going to motivate us.

On whether Hill will make an impact on Sunday…

I think he’ll have a big impact because he has that great vertical speed and he has size and I think he has an advantage in both those areas.

On how much they have missed Hill…

Really, he’s been out, what? (joking) Did he miss two games or one game?  I think he only missed the one game, right? Two games. Yeah, he missed two, I’m sorry, that’s right.  I think it will help.  Anytime you have a big fast guy that is going to take two guys with him (it helps). If not, you can throw it to him one-on-one. I think that might not show up on stats, but I think it could be a factor in the game.

On whether he expects Hill to play a lot…

Yes. I don’t know how much specifically, but I definitely expect him to play.

On the run defense…

I think last week, in that second half, it turned around, as you’re going against similar things. You saw a difference between the second half and the first half against the same kind of running plays. So, I think that, hopefully, will be a good sign for us going forward.

On how tough it was for Dustin Keller to be out.…

It’s probably equally as tough on him as it was me and every one of his teammates. That was tough. You sense his frustration because he clearly wanted to get out there. (He did) whatever was asked of him to get back out there. It just was slow to heal. Here’s one of our best-conditioned athletes and he has this injury. It’s just sometimes guys can heal from things faster. He’s had injuries in the past, just like that (and) he’s right back. But it was frustrating for Dustin. I’m just happy that he’s ready to go. We’ll be smart. I don’t think he’ll play 60 snaps, but he’s going to play a lot. He looks really good out there.

On whether keeping Revis on active the roster hampered what they could do with the roster…

Not at all. That’s where you look at the situation now (and see) we really need the roster spot. When Eric went down for the week, we needed the roster spot. That’s why when you look at it, talking to John Mellody and the trainers, it wouldn’t be in Darrelle’s best interest either. There’s no way he’s going to come back and really be able to play at any time during the season.

On if Revis would have gone on injured reserve if Smith didn’t get hurt…

No, I wouldn’t have made the move. I would have probably waited until surgery.

On if he will make Revis the designated for return player…

No, not after getting all the facts.

On the percentage chance that Revis could return…

My exact quote was with a bunch of zeros and a two, but I think it’s really a bunch of zeros period.

On if the facts were based on any new information that has come to light about Revis’ knee…

No, it’s just because that injury, as everybody probably assumed, would take more time than the season to come back from. My thing was, until we really needed that spot, let’s try to wait for him to get surgery and maybe we’ll see. But the more I really paid attention to the doctors and John Mellody, I think the decision was pretty obvious.

On the whether the 53rd spot on the roster is a big deal…

It is this week because we’re going to need to use that spot for the game. We are going to have to use it. I’m not saying that it’s not a big deal, but we need to activate a guy that is going to play this week. I think that’s where we’re at.

On what position the new player on the roster will play…

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re going to replace a safety.

On the challenges of facing Reggie Wayne…

There are a lot. Reggie (averages) 15 targets (a game). They move him all over. That’s the whole thing. We can match Cro (Antonio Cromartie) on him, but he’s all over the place, so there are going to be times (where someone else covers him). It’s not like we’re going to play man-coverage every snap. We could match him on him, but it’s tough. They get him the football in a lot of different areas. They can get him little bubble screens. They can get him in the curl. They get him in the flat. They get him vertical. They get him all over the place, (also) crossing routes. He runs the whole gamut and they put him in position. Clearly, they want to get him the football.

On Matt Slauson’s fine…

I don’t really want to get into it. My big thing is what I’ve said from day one and I’ll stick with it. That’s that I know the intent of Matt Slauson was never, never to injure Brian Cushing. It’s unfortunate that happened. Cut blocks and things happen all the time in this league and I know we’re a team that very rarely cuts people. It’s an unfortunate part of the game and obviously you don’t wish that on any player. Matt obviously felt terrible about when the young man (was) injured, as we all did. I don’t care who you’re playing, how competitive and all that, the best thing for this league is your great players are healthy and playing. It’s just an unfortunate injury.

On Drew Stanton saying he would get a chance to play with the Jets if Sanchez struggled…

I don’t remember that. I read part of his comments. I felt that we had our quarterback (and) that we weren’t going to draft a quarterback because I felt really good about our quarterback situation. When the Tebow trade possibility came up, (we thought), “Woah,” we thought it was a great opportunity for our football team to add the Wildcat back into our offense and to get a player like Tim in the building. That’s why we pursued it. With Drew, it wasn’t like we said, “Hey, we got you under contract. You’re going to be here regardless.” We never wanted to mess him over. That wasn’t our intent. When we signed him, we felt really good about him being the number two and McElroy being the three. It just happened that this opportunity came up and that’s why we made the move.

On whether he remembers saying that Stanton will play if Sanchez struggles…

No, I don’t remember that.  I just remember that we were happy to have him. We thought that he’d be a good number two quarterback and that’s why we signed him originally.

GEICO SportsNite: NFL Draft 00:01:05
Jets GM Mike Maccagnan discusses the final days of preparation leading up to the NFL Draft on Thursday.

Ralph Vacchiano Facebook | Twitter | Archive

One last look at the top players on the board for the Jets as they prepare to make the sixth overall pick on April 27:

1.CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State - He has been in the No. 1 spot on this board almost from the beginning because of his skill and because he seems likely to be there at 6. The Chicago Bears seem to like him at 3 and there's a chance the Tennessee Titans will take him at 5, but both teams seem to have other priorities. If he gets through to the Jets, it will be hard to pass up this 6-foot, 193-pounder who could give them the shut-down cornerback they haven't had since Darrelle Revis was still Darrelle Revis. (Last report: 1)...

After initially being "open for business" with the sixth pick of the draft and admitting a desire to trade down, Mike Maccagnan seemed to close up shop on Monday. Now the Jets GM says "We feel pretty good at 6 right now."

And they should, because if the sudden frenzy over the quarterbacks in this draft is more than just a smokescreen, the Jets will end up with a better player at 6 than they previously believed.

For the longest time it didn't look like any quarterback would go in the first five picks of the NFL draft. The scouting world was down on all of the top quarterbacks in the draft and few believed any were worthy of even a Top 10 pick. The idea that any of them could end up as the top pick seemed crazy -- as crazy as the idea that two could go in the Top 10...

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan has spent a lot of time this offseason looking at the quarterbacks in this draft. But that isn't necessarily unusual. In fact, he said, the Jets "feel pretty good" about the quarterbacks they already have.

"We have the two young guys (Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty) and we like both of them in terms of ability and potential," the Jets GM said during his pre-draft press briefing on Monday. "We feel pretty good about the guys we have."

That hasn't stopped him from looking, of course, and at least considering the possibility of the Jets drafting a quarterback with the No. 6 overall pick. They have scouted the top quarterbacks in the draft heavily this offseason and many believe the Jets will take one in that spot...

The less the rest of the nation has to see the Jets, the better.

That seemed to be the thinking of the NFL and its partner networks as they made up the 2017 schedule. The Jets, coming off a 5-11 season and heading for a year that doesn't appear to be promising, are scheduled to play only one game in prime time on national TV - a league-mandated Thursday night game that every team must have.

The big defensive lineman was pictured at the Jets facility in Florham Park, New Jersey, on Monday morning, as the team officially kicked off its voluntary workouts. Last year, Wilkerson declined to participate because he wasn't happy with being tagged as the Jets "franchise player." He skipped them in 2015 as he hoped to pressure the Jets to give him a new deal.

In addition to meeting with Miami tight end David Njoku on Monday, the New York Jets also met with Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster and NC State safety Josh Jones, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Jets, who own the No. 6 pick in next week's NFL Draft, have given no indication as to which player they might pick, as a sample of 30-plus mock drafts has New York picking between eight players, ranging from quarterbacks to cornerbacks.

Foster, who recorded five sacks and 115 total tackles in his senior season with Alabama in 2016, is a 6-foot, 229-pound linebacker who did not participate in the NFL combine.

The only consensus among the mock drafters on whom the Jets will take at No. 6 is that there is no consensus -- and that's unusual for such a high pick this late in the process.

But with only 10 days to go until the first round of the NFL draft begins, the picks in 32 mock drafts examined by SNY are split fairly evenly among eight players. The belief seems to be that the Jets will use the pick to fix their secondary (50 percent of the mock drafts have them going corner or safety), though some still believe they'll take a quarterback (32 percent).

The New York Jets will meet with former California Golden Bears quarterback Davis Webb this week, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Webb, 22, threw for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his senior season with Cal. In his four-year college career, which includes three seasons at Texas Tech, he threw for 9,852 yards, 83 touchdowns and 34 interceptions.

Webb, a 6-foot-5, 229-pound quarterback, has drawn comparisons to Brock Osweiler, according to his NFL.com draft profile page.

"He obviously is going to need coaching after being in those offenses at Texas Tech and Cal," one AFC scout told NFL.com. "I think he has enough between the ears to unlearn some of his bad habits and start to get things right. I see another Nick Foles if you give him time to develop."

Conley, whom Scouts Inc. rates as the No. 21 prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft, totaled four interceptions and eight passes defensed in 13 games with the Buckeyes last season.

A 6-foot, 195-pound junior, Conley ran a 4.44-second 40-yard dash, had a 37-inch vertical leap and recorded a 6.68-second three-cone drill time at the NFL combine.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

I don't remember doing a mock draft any time in the last 20 or so years (though I did find internet evidence of one in 2010). I'm still interpreting my record in all the other years to be perfect -- no misses. But, as they say, "No guts, no glory". It's time to put that streak on the line with my first Mock Draft for SNY. It won't be my last, either. I'll be revising this up until Draft Week. So keep checking back. This is simply version 1.0:

1. Cleveland Browns - Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Yeah, they need a quarterback, but he's the best player in the draft and they have a decent young QB on the roster. Plus they have the No. 12 pick (so stay tuned).

2. San Francisco 49ers - Solomon Thomas, DE Stanford
They need a quarterback too, but they have a new coach and GM on long-term deals. They can wait until there's a better QB crop.

Former Jets center Nick Mangold is making his first known free-agent visit to meet with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, according to a report.

The 33-year-old, who was released by the Jets in February, was expected to arrive in Baltimore late Tuesday night, according to ESPN. The Ravens traded their starting center, Jeremy Zuttah, to the San Francisco 49ers last month but did not bring in a replacement.

They do have two in-house candidates - John Urschel and Ryan Jensen, both of whom are 25. If healthy, the 33-year-old Mangold could conceivably compete for that job, or at least provide a veteran mentor to help the young centers.
