“You put me on the field,Authentic James White Jersey,” Guy said. “It doesn’t matter if I’m at nose (tackle), I’ll do what I gotta do to make a play,
(five-technique defensive end),(three-technique defensive tackle),Authentic Donald Trump Jersey,James White Jersey,Donald Trump Jersey,Derek Rivers Jersey, (six-technique defensive end) or (seven-technique defensive
end). I’ve seen it and played it all,Authentic Antonio Garcia Jersey, so I’m just happy to go out there and play and make plays.”

The Patriots have more certainty at defensive tackle than they do at defensive end at this point in the offseason. Defensive
tackles Alan Branch and Malcom Brown are multi-year starters, and Vincent Valentine showed flashes as a rookie in 2016. Only
Trey Flowers and Rob Ninkovich return from the Patriots’ 2016 defensive end rotation. They added veteran Kony Ealy and rookies
Deatrich Wise and Corey Vereen. They also have Geneo Grissom,Derek Rivers, who almost exclusively played special teams last

That means Guy might be inserted into the Patriots’ defensive tackle and defensive end rotations this season. That will be
especially necessary if Rivers and Wise don’t prove they can contribute as rookies. The Patriots also won’t be forced to play
an undersized player out of position as they did last season with Chris Long at five-technique defensive end.

“I like to be on the field, I’ll go out there and do it, so if they put me at a position they need me to work at,” Guy said.
“The whole object is to be able to play multi positions on the field so you can be out there for the most time you can and how
you’re not really helping the team. If you can do multiple things,you help the team out. If you can only do one thing, you
can help the team a lot.”

The New York Jets went into the 2014 draft thinking it would be a turning point for the franchise. With 12 picks, they expected
to replenish a talent-starved roster and accelerate their rebuilding process.

They couldn't have been more wrong. Their so-called watershed draft has put them underwater, and the current general manager,
Mike Maccagnan, is holding his breath,Preston Smith Jersey, hoping he has enough time to repair the damage.

Will he pay for the sins of his predecessor, John Idzik? Only owner Woody Johnson can answer that question. When he evaluates
Maccagnan and his lieutenants after the 2017 season,Matt Jones Jersey, the billionaire boss man needs to remember 2014 was the draft equivalent
of the butt fumble.

The utter ineptitude was hammered home Thursday,Pat Tillman Jersey, when the Jets traded underachieving safety Calvin Pryor (first round,Patrick Peterson Jersey, 2014) to
the Cleveland Browns, reacquiring linebacker Demario Davis. He was the Jets' third-round pick in 2012,Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey, another terrible draft.

and those players should comprise the nucleus of the team. They should be in
,The 2014 class is entering its fourth season

making final pushes for second contracts. But there is none of that. There is only a massive void in the
,their prime years

one that is threatening the men trying to fill it.

Counting Davis, the current Jets roster includes only six players from the 2012, 2013 and 2014 drafts. One of them, defensive
has been on the trading block since October. The Maccagnan-Todd Bowles regime has dumped three

Dee Milliner (2013) and Pryor. Richardson would make four.,former first-round picks -- Quinton Coples (2012)

so it's not as if they were just bad fits for the Jets. A franchise known for poor

Mike Tannenbaum
,drafting (Ken O'Brien over Dan Marino in '83) hit a major dry spell from 2012 to 2014 under two different GMs

and Idzik. At least Tannenbaum enjoyed early success during his seven-year run; Idzik was a disaster.

His 2014 draft -- known by media types as the Idzik 12 -- will go down as one of the worst in team history. Only three of the
backup guard Dakota Dozier (fourth) and
,12 picks remain on the roster -- starting wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (sixth round)

marginal cornerback Dexter McDougle (third).

That's a Tebow-esque batting average.

That draft was an exercise in what not to do. The Jets didn't make a single trade during the draft; they sat on their hands
instead of packaging multiple picks to move up for better players. They reached for need ... over and over and over. They

including linebacker IK Enemkpali, a draft mistake from the previous year., who later punched quarterback Geno Smith

You can't make this stuff up.

The Jets picked Pryor because they felt he'd be a Kam Chancellor-type enforcer in the secondary. Chosen among the next few

and the Jets will have to figure out a way to cover him this fall with a secondary that has been overhauled twice

Even though the Lions mustered just six points against Seattle in their wild-card loss,Authentic Montravius AdamsJersey, the preceding month of football had shown Detroit’s biggest need was on defense.

and heading into mid-December he was a dark horse in the MVP race for posting another 4,Things seemed like they finally clicked for quarterback Matt Stafford,000-yard season in his first without Calvin Johnson. But the defense began failing Detroit in Week 15 and never recovered.

That’s why Lions GM Bob Quinn was so aggressive this off-season in strengthening the D. He had to spend good money to replace offensive linemen Larry Warford and Riley Reiff with T.J. Lang and Rick Wagner, but that had to be done to protect their franchise quarterback. Almost everything else this off-season in Detroit has been geared toward building a defense that will give the Lions a chance in the winter months.

Cowboys and Packers before drawing Seattle in the playoffs. In those four games,The Lions closed out last season with games against the Giants, the defense allowed 377.5 yards and 29 points per game. The Lions had zero interceptions and zero fumble recoveries. They finished the season winless in their last four contests.

Quinn started free agency by getting young pass-rusher Cornelius Washington, who thrived in his limited snaps in Chicago and appeared to be getting the hang of his position by 2016. The Lions also nabbed former Bucs defensive tackle Akeem Spence to add depth behind 11-year vet Haloti Ngata.

Detroit also signed outside linebacker Paul Worrilow, who had gotten edged out in Atlanta by younger players. Former Oakland cornerback D.J. Hayden also signed with Detroit to play opposite Darius Slay.

But there still remained a glaring hole in Detroit’s defense. Long-time linebacker DeAndre Levy got his walking papers this offseason after struggling to stay healthy and perform on his 2015 contract extension. Levy appeared in just four games for the Lions in his final two seasons.

Detroit took the second-best inside linebacker (behind medical- and red-flag stud Reuben Foster) in Florida’s Jarrad Davis,Authentic Michael Roberts Jersey,So with the 21st pick in the draft,Authentic Kevin King Jersey, and Quinn said immediately that Davis would be the team’s middle linebacker. Then Detroit doubled down on Gators and got cornerback Teez Tabor to compete with Hayden in training camp.

but that’s not how his draft played out. Six of the nine picks are on the defensive side,Authentic Josh Jones Jersey,Montravius Adams Jersey,Quinn told media before the draft that he saw needs on both sides of the ball,Jamaal Williams Jersey, including three of the first four selections.

We’re open to adding prospects and adding players to help us,“Some of the moves we made on the offensive line may take one position off the board early in the draft. Other than the offensive line,” Quinn said. “Ideally once you get the team exactly how you want—we’re not exactly how we want it right now—we’re working toward that.”

000 yards and threw 41 touchdowns in the 10-win season. Stafford got the Lions into the playoffs without Johnson and engineered eight fourth-quarter, besting his 2011 season when he eclipsed 5, game-winning drives,A convincing argument could be made that 2016 was Stafford’s greatest year as a pro, tied for the most in a season all-time.

young and fast defense that has made an appearance in recent Super Bowls (Carolina, the Lions have added to a defense that failed them down the stretch and are building the same type of strong, Atlanta,
Michael Roberts Jersey
,If Stafford can repeat that magic in 2017,Kevin King Jersey,Authentic Jamaal Williams Jersey,Josh Jones Jersey, Denver and Seattle).

The upgrades on defense should allow Detroit to get over the hump of ordinary team hanging on in the playoffs to one that can actually get its first postseason victory in more than a quarter-century.

Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson had scant seconds to scan the field, reading the situation on the fly Wednesday as he diagnosed defenses during a red-zone drill.

Watson spotted an open wide receiver in the back corner of the end zone,Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey, but his pass arrived too late and was slightly overthrown as a potential touchdown opportunity was lost.

A first-round draft pick who was a Heisman Trophy finalist and national champion at Clemson,Teez Tabor Jersey, Watson is making steady progress in his knowledge of the Texans' complex playbook. The Texans are seeing incremental growth from Watson as he learns to read NFL defenses to hit his receivers in stride.
