Another year, another heartbreaking loss in the AFC Championship game on the road for the New York Jets. It’s no secret that Rex Ryan expects the Jets to win the Super Bowl this season after coming up just short the past two seasons.
While many are worrying about the potential for there to be a lockout in 2011, Ryan is focusing on strengthening his roster during the offseason. Whether it's through free agency, trade or through the draft, Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum will look to add pieces to the roster in order for Gang Green to get to that next level and get past the AFC Championship Game.
The offseason has been very busy for the Jets, as they have a lot of questions going into the draft. It will be extremely tough for Tannenbaum to keep everyone from last year’s team, and that is where the 2011 Draft comes into play.
In two-and-a-half weeks, no matter which collegiate standouts decide to shake Roger Goodell’s hand at Radio City Music Hall, the 75th annual draft will take place. There will be lots of green jerseys watching on at Radio City Music Hall as their team has six picks in 2011.
