Jets head coach Rex Ryan was at a charity softball game for CBS Radio personalities Boomer and Carton of WFAN, and spoke to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. Hubbuch posted some of what Ryan had to say on Twitter in a series of tweets, giving some insight into some of the Jets possible draft strategy, as well as an update on the offseason so far.
- Ryan said “half-jokingly” that the Jets were planning on taking a defensive lineman in the first round again in the upcoming draft. He then told general manager John Idzik that he thinks the fans would run the two of them out of town if they actually did that again.
- About the prospect of moving around in the draft, Ryan said that having 12 picks gives them the flexibility to move up if an opportunity to present itself in the first round.
- Speaking on the offseason workout program, the head coach noted that the team had a nearly perfect attendance, including the newest Jet, running back Chris Johnson. The only absences were expected.
