Five burning questions as OTAs begin

May, 27, 2014
MAY 27

AM ET
By  Rich Cimini  | ESPNNewYork.com
The next phase of the New York Jets' offseason begins Tuesday -- organized team activities. Or, as we like to call them in the biz, OTAs. Five questions facing the Jets as they start three weeks of practices before the mandatory minicamp: 

Smith
1. Can Geno Smith hold off Michael VickWe already know how Vick feels about the subject, as he stated his belief that Smith will be the opening-day quarterback. Vick probably is right, but Smith needs to eliminate any doubts. He can start by building off his promising finish to last season, which means taking control of the offense in OTAs. Smith has impressed teammates with his improved command of the offense, but it's one thing to be that way in a walk-through and quite another to demonstrate it against a live defense. 

2. Is Eric Decker worth the money? The Jets, no longer big spenders in free agency, made an exception for Decker, giving him a five-year, $36 million contract. For that kind of loot, they expect him to be more than a nice No. 2 wide receiver. This could be culture shock for Decker, who goes from Peyton Manning to Smith/Vick. Then again, he caught passes fromTim Tebow in 2011, so he should be prepared for anything. 

Amaro
3. Can Jace Amaro find an immediate niche? The Jets didn't use a lot of two-tight-end packages last season, but that could change with Amaro joining incumbent Jeff Cumberland at the position. The second-round pick is a big dude (6-foot-5, 265 pounds) with the ability to basically line up as a wide receiver. It will be interesting to see how coordinator Marty Mornhinweg incorporates Amaro into the passing attack. 

4. Is Calvin Pryor as good as Rex Ryan thinks? Ryan always gushes about his rookies, but he's positively smitten with his first-round pick. He already has compared Pryor to one of the most notorious safeties in history, the hard-hitting Jack Tatum. It will be interesting to see how Ryan juggles Pryor, Dawan Landry and Antonio Allen in the safety rotation -- if there is a rotation. We're talking about three players with similar skill sets -- i.e. strong safety-types. 

5. Is it Milliner time? Taking Smith out of the equation, the most improved player on the team has to be cornerback Dee Milliner. If not, the defense will have problems because it's counting on him as the No. 1 cornerback. Milliner has to be the rock in the post-Cromartie/post-Revis era. Last year's top pick, who missed the 2013 off-season because of a shoulder injury, saved a poor rookie year with a strong finish. Now he needs to build on that. Just being on the field, as opposed to rehabbing an injury, will help immensely.

Five players to watch in OTA's

May, 28, 2014

AM ET
By  Rich Cimini  | ESPNNewYork.com
Players not named Geno Smith with the most on the line in the New York Jets' OTA's, which continue Wednesday (open to the media): 

1. Stephen Hill, wide receiver: If his balky knee cooperates, Hill needs to reinvent himself this spring and summer, validating the first-round grade he received from the Jets as a talented but unpolished wideout who came out of Georgia Tech in 2012. If all goes well, he could start opposite Eric Decker. If he remains an enigma, he could jeopardize his roster spot. 

2. Jacoby Ford, wide receiver: Overshadowed by Decker and the three rookies at receiver, Ford has quietly impressed the coaching staff. People forget he was an ascending player for the Oakland Raiders in 2010 -- until injuries hit. If healthy, Ford could be a factor at receiver, not to mention a scary kickoff returner -- or just a tease. 

3. Kyle Wilson, cornerback: After four years, the Jets know what the former first-round pick can do, but it'll be interesting to see if they can find anyone to do it better. They imported competition in the slot. If a newcomer jumps out (perhaps Johnny Patrick or rookieDexter McDougle), Wilson -- always a notch below expectations -- could be expendable in the preseason. 

4. Zach Sudfeld, tight end: A late arrival last season after being dropped by the New England Patriots, Sudfeld flashed potential as a receiver in limited action. The coaches like his upside, but they still drafted Jace Amaro in the second round. It's time to turn upside into production. 

5. Quinton Coples, outside linebacker: These next few weeks aren't make or break for the former first-round pick, but Coples can establish a positive tone for the season by making big strides. This is his third season, and he acknowledged recently it's time to be more productive and assertive. We already know how Joe Klecko feels about him.

Read this AM that QCoples came into OTAs 15 lbs lighter than last year, and according to him much better prepared to play the OLB position than last year.  Also said that he worked hard in the weight room (still stinging from Rex's comments last year), and his pass drops.  Expecting (hoping for) big things from him this year.  Would be huge for this defense if he put it all together.  See article below:

Vick with the pass to Saunders, who elevated and had a beautiful toe tap to stay inbounds



Chris Nimbley @Cnimbley 1h
Right now Vick is throwing to WRs, Geno to RBs, Boyd and Simms to TEs #Jets






Chris Nimbley @Cnimbley 1h
Because I'm in a good mood I'll say this. Hill is catching everything, also doing a nice job w/ body control and toe tapping.....




Chris Nimbley @Cnimbley 1h
I know, I know, it's just OTA's & he's looked great in those before. I'm not saying it means anything just reporting what's happening today








Chris Nimbley @Cnimbley 1h
11-on-11's Geno did a great job moving around the pocket smoothly and threw a laser to Decker on 20 yard + comeback #Jets #jetstwitter

The video I posted had Richardson and Snacks lining up across from each other and Snacks slapping him around while Richardson looked agile spinning off him.  I thought it was fun watching each other smoothly go through the drills with Snacks slapping him around and Richardson looking like, "watch this, playa."

Have you seen any of the practice films?  Geno is practicing like it's a game.  I saw some of his throws this morning and everything is jumping out of his hand (darts).  Vick looks like he is practicing with a bunch of lazy throws.  He did look good on a throw to Ford (Vick to Ford) where he threw a nice sideline route...but there are a lot of air under Vick's balls.  If one didn't know better, they would think Geno has the stronger arm.  Geno is definitely practicing with something to prove while Vick is just practicing.

Calvin Pryor didn't participate in team drills today due to wisdom teeth issues. Can't put helmet on since it puts pressure on face. #nyj

Pryor says he'll get his wisdom teeth pulled next week. Expects to be back practicing fully soon. #nyj

A couple of writers mentioned on twitter that Smith looks polished and is practicing with a purpose.
