Post Draft Analysis Of The 2012 New York Jets: Linebackers
During the 2012 NFL Draft the New York Jets drafted 3-4 inside linebacker Demario Davis in the third round. After the draft the team signed undrafted free agent Brett Roy, a versatile player who could play various positions, including outside linebacker, in the Jets scheme. Unfortunately neither player will have an immediate impact since they will both be backups, barring any injuries to starters ahead of them, in 2012.
Right now the projected starting linebackers for the team, according to Ourlads.com, are: Calvin Pace (left outside linebacker), David Harris (inside linebacker), Bart Scott (inside linebacker), and Bryan Thomas (right outside linebacker). Outside linebacker Aaron Maybin will be returning as a situational pass rusher, but will most likely see more time on the field with a full off-season to learn the team’s playbook.
Maybin is the only player whose performance will realistically improve, due to the previously mentioned reason and him gaining weight. This means that Rex Ryan expects the defensive line to provide far more pressure in 2012 compared to last year. Fans should expect the team to line up in the 4-3 front frequently this year.

With training camp just weeks away, it seems fitting to classify which areas of the team are their strongest. This should give Bengals fans a little more confidence heading in to 2015. With so much depth on their team, which groups will make the cut? Read More
