As the NFL Combine gets underway in Indianapolis, large parts of each team's staff head there to scout out and interview players, including Jets head coach Adam Gase.
The Jets' first pick of the draft comes at No. 11, and will continue drafting six more times come the last weekend of April, so SNY's Jeane Coakley asked Gase what he and the organization are looking for.
"For us, the interviews are the biggest thing, you get everything else on tape..." Gase said on Tuesday. "Seeing a guy face-to-face, being able to ask him questions, really finding out his football intelligence, kinda finding out who these guys are. It's real important for the coaches and then personnel guys are able to use the numbers and watching these guys work out live to their advantage."
Gase and GM Joe Douglas are spending their first full offseason together, so they've been spending a lot of time talking and having discussions on how they want to go about things now that the two are comfortably in control this time around at the combine.
"[Our discussions] started really in the summer, but once we started the season, some of that stuff gets put on the back burner, but you still have discussions here and there just getting ready for this," Gase said. "I think our guys are excited to get this process going and see how it turns out."
Gase mentioned that with that No. 11 pick, there are a lot of options, including potentially looking at a receiver, saying there are "a lot of guys that can do a lot of good things," in that WR group.
