The Jets are not expected to bring CB Kyle Wilson back (Newsday, Feb. 26).
Wilson, a former first-round pick, has been with the team since 2010. The 27-year-old will be a free agent on March 10.
In his career, Wilson has 17 passes defended, three interceptions and one forced fumble. He also has 142 tackles and one sack, which came in 2014.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to hire former Jets GM John Idzik (Schefter, Feb. 25).
Idzik will reportedly be a consultant for the Jags.
Welcome to the fourth instalment of the BGA: 2015 NFL Draft series. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be sharing thoughts and observations about draft prospects for each position group. In the previous instalment we covered edge defenders, but now we’re moving on to look at wide receivers, a particularly interesting position to look at now that we have this year’s combine data to chew on.
Last year’s wide receiver class was spectacular, although the Jets got next to no production out of the four drafted players that spent time on their roster. Word is that this year’s receiver class is pretty strong too, albeit not expected to emulate the depth and immediate impact from last season’s group. Let’s see if we can pick any holes in the top prospects.
After the jump, I’ll be trying to find some bargains outside of the top couple of prospects and looking for some potential sleepers.
