During a four-year period beginning with 2011, the Jets had a dismal record in the NFL Draft. The Jets’ draft record was the third-worst in the league during that time period.
The survey found that only 24.24 percent of Jets draft picks over that time period fulfilled expectations.
The Jets were the NFL’s undisputed basement dwellers for much of last season. They had a dreadful start to the season, going 0-13, and it looked like they were headed for a winless campaign after their last-second collapse against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Even though they finished the season with a 2-14 record, they haven’t officially labeled the weakest team in the league until late in the season when they won two games.
They’ve gone two weeks without a touchdown. First halves of games this season have seen them outscored by a combined total of 46-3. At an average of five sacks per game, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson is being pressured on more than half of his dropbacks.
Both the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Jets have a total of 42 points in the last two games against each other. The Jets will be lucky to reach that milestone by the midway point of the season if things continue as they are.
