Accordingly, it is no surprise that the Jets are one of the betting favorites for the next Super Bowl.

But beyond that, another source of optimism has emerged as ESPN analyst Mike Clay has released his roster ratings wherein the New York Jets rank not just in the top 3 but #1 overall.

At a high level, Clay ranks the Jets offense as the #2 unit in the league overall and their defense as the #6 unit overall, both of which are very formidable.

At a more narrow level, Clay seems to be very high on the Jets quarterback, running back, and offensive line groups as he gives them scores that place them among the league’s best.

Less surprisingly, he is very high on the cornerback group for which he gives the top score. He also gave a strong score to the linebacker group which is justified given their strong play last season.
