Positives: Ducasse is a physical and tough player with excellent size and strength. He is very agile and is quick off the snap. He has light feet and can be an anchor. He is durable, versatile and brings everything to the field with him.
Negatives: His instincts aren’t all together yet most likely due to his lack of football experience after growing up in Haiti. His footwork needs some attention and more importantly he needs to learn to finish his blocks and take better angles against defenders.
Analysis: In all honesty I truly believed that the Jets were going to go either safety or linebacker here but the way the draft is going, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised they chose Ducasse. Although drafting an OL wasn’t a major need especially this early I could see why this happened. There is uncertainty with Alan Faneca at LT, Damian Woody is getting on in years and overall the line could use depth. After some coaching by the master, Bill Callahan, I believe Ducasse can turn into a very dangerous OL that could provide excellent protection for Sanchez.
