CB Buster Skrine SIGNED by New York Jets
The Jets pass defense ranked in the middle of the league with arguably the worst group of cornerbacks in the league. With a strong group rushing the passer and a new scheme that will force extra bodies in to the pocket, effective cover corners will be vital to the team’s success. Skrine is undersized but quick and balanced. He can stick to a receiver’s hip consistently while locating the action and reading routes. If Skrine were on the Jets in 2014, he would have been the teams top cornerback by a landslide.
The Jets are far from finished when it comes to rebuilding their defensive backfield. This depth chart lacks quality and quantity, plain and simple. Skrine will likely start across from Revis, allowing Dee Milliner to try and find himself and his role within this defense without being thrown straight in to the lion’s den. With Skrine and Revis in New York, it’s a safe assumption the draft need at CB takes a back seat.
