As we prepare for the 2018 NFL Draft, the Jets are retaining their eye on Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, and Baker Mayfield. But the seek for a quarterback is not the one factor occurring with the Jets. With that in thoughts, let’s reply your questions on this week’s Jets mailbag.
Among the subjects this week — is Josh Rosen or Baker Mayfield a greater choice for the Jets?
Ira in Staten Island, through electronic mail: I feel there’s a likelihood the Giants take Bradley Chubb at No. 2. I imagine the Browns take Josh Allen first total. And then Sam Darnold falls into the Jets’ lap, like Jamal Adams and Leonard Williams. Thoughts?
I do not see it occurring, however the Jets would clearly love this. I might be shocked if each the Browns and Giants move on Sam Darnold. He might be the perfect quarterback on this draft class. Chubb is a really sturdy move rusher, and I suppose the Giants may take him, however it might be dumb, if Darnold remains to be on the board. The Giants must get their quarterback of the long run. That is extra essential than changing Jason Pierre-Paul. If Josh Allen goes first total to the Browns (which is feasible), the Giants may additionally try and commerce that No. 2 choose to a quarterback-needy group. Odds aren’t good that Darnold lands with the Jets, however I assume stranger issues have occurred.
Tom, through electronic mail: With the Jets having a number of wants, but solely six draft picks, what are the probabilities they’ll get somebody serviceable who’s minimize by one other group (for depth/particular groups)? Anyone who stands out as doable?
Yeah, the Jets may try and complement their roster like this. But for essentially the most half, free company signings are over and groups have turned their consideration to the draft. Remember, the Jets have sufficient late-round picks (one every in Rounds Four-7) that they’ll get depth gamers that manner.
I agree. Josh Allen in all probability is not able to begin in 2018. If the Jets wound up with one of many different three quarterbacks, I may see any of them taking part in this season. But I additionally would not be shocked if Josh McCown is the Week 1 starter, and the rookie winds up taking on sooner or later later within the season. Fans will wring their arms over this — McCown beginning in Week 1 over the draft choose — however there’s nothing flawed with it.
