The New York Jets upgraded their defense in a big way when they drafted Quinnen Williams third overall. The Alabama product is widely regarded as somewhat of a sure thing by most analysts, and he should provide a steady, disruptive presence along New York's defensive line.
New Jets coach Adam Gase is a somewhat eccentric character, and he doesn't operate the same way all coaches do. After the draft, teams usually have an introductory press conference for early picks, but Gase is switching things up. Williams won't officially be introduced to the media with a press conference, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
For what it's worth, Mehta believes the decision is a mistake. Mehta also points out that both Rex Ryan and Todd Bowles did press conferences for top players, so this is a pretty big departure from the Jets' norms.
Mehta speculates on a few possible reasons for Gase's decision, including that he “didn’t want to single out his first-round pick over the rest of the drafted players.” It's also possible he thought the New York media market could be a bit overwhelming, and he didn't want to expose Williams to the chaos.
Gase's own introductory press conference, of course, went viral as he appeared to be dazed by the onslaught of lights and cameras. While it's likely this whole situation will be forgotten in a few days, it's notable nonetheless. A coach's relationship with the press does matter, and it'll be interesting to see if Gase goes the adversarial route.
