» No team in the division has undergone more change than the Jets -- especially on offense, where veteran quarterback Michael Vickwas signed to push second-year passer Geno Smith. Gang Green continues to talk up Smith's progress, but we see Vick as the Week 1 starter without hesitation. After adding so many parts on offense, Vick gives New York a better chance to win right away.
» Whoever starts under center will hand the ball off to a combination of Chris Ivory and the newly signedChris Johnson. We don't trust the former Titans home-run hitter as a featured back, but if Johnson and Ivory can stay healthy, coach Rex Ryan finally has the horses to return to his beloved ground-and-pound past.
» We expected New York to use a high pick on a receiver, but they opted instead for "move" tight end Jace Amaro. I like the selection and expect the former Texas Tech weapon to see plenty of targets in the passing game. At wideout, Eric Decker makes more sense as a No. 2 target, but he's an immediate upgrade over Jeremy Kerley and the unnerving Stephen Hill, the latter who might tumble from the starting lineup if he continues to disappoint.
» Defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson, Damon "Snacks" Harrison and Sheldon Richardson remain in place as one of the NFL's nastiest three-man fronts. In the new-look secondary, Ryan already has fallen in love with hammer-dropping rookie safety Calvin Pryor, who should make an immediate impact against the run. At cornerback, Antonio Cromartie is out the door, leaving Dee Milliner as a starter across from Dimitri Patterson.
