Pierre Desir – New York Jets

There appears to be something of a fire sale occurring with the New York Jets, who are looking to acquire as many 2021 picks as they can in a bid to somehow turnaround their fortunes. They do look primed for the No. 1 overall selection next spring, but Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has already highlighted “things might change” regarding a potential decision between declaring or staying on for his senior year with the Tigers.

If the Carolina Panthers are intent on looking for secondary help, then Pierre Desir is a name that should enter their discussions. The player has been one of the best performers on a struggling Jets defense and there could be even more to come if he lands on a team with more talent.

Desir has given up 24 receptions from 33 targets this season on his way to a modest 54.6 grade from Pro Football Focus. The former fourth-round pick joined the organization during the offseason on a one-year deal, amassing three interceptions, six passes defended, one touchdown, 37 combined tackles, 29 solo tackles, and one tackle for loss through seven games.

Considering how much pressure has been on the Jets secondary during the season, Desir has come out of it with a great deal of credit.

His height and ability to go down the field with opposing wide receivers would be an asset to the Panthers and it is unlikely those making the decisions at MetLife Stadium would ask for a king’s ransom in return for a player who might not even sign an extension if it was offered.
