    2017 AFC East Outlook: New York Jets

    In 2015, the New York Jets looked like a team on the rise. They had fired loudmouthed head coach Rex Ryan and replaced him with the reserved, focused, and still-fiery Todd Bowles. The team was 10-5, on the verge of its first playoff appearance since 2010, and all that stood in their way was a date with the Buffalo Bills, who had already been eliminated from playoff contention.

    One of the most fun thing’s I’ve gotten to do as a writer at Baltimore Beatdown is put together mock drafts, where I predict what I think NFL team’s will do in the draft. This time, however, I’m changing it up. Now, I’m going back in time to the 2010 NFL Draft, and giving every team do over with their first round pick with knowledge of how each player’s career will pan out through the 2016 season. Let’s see how the NFL landscape changes when hindsight comes into play. St. Louis Rams Original Pick: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma Re-draft Pick: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma In his NFL career, at best, Sam Bradford is an average quarterback.
