There has been a TON of rumors about the Draft tonight, and in less than FOUR hours, we will start to have some answers to those rumors. The Jets have the THIRD pick in the draft tonight and they will be drafting a quarterback with that pick. We HAVE no idea who that quarterback is going to be though.
There are FOUR possibilities for them, Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and Josh Allen. My PERSONAL pick is Mayfield but all the buzz around the NFL today has been that the Cleveland Browns will take him with the FIRST pick, but that can be SMOKE SCREEN, which I hope.
This is the MOST important day in Jets’ franchise HISTORY and they are probably going to BLOW IT like they have in the past FORTY years. I am BIASED but if the Jets do not draft Baker Mayfield, than I will be DISAPPOINTED in them, but maybe that is a GOOD thing that I am disappointed EARLY in the preseason. I really HOPE they do not BLOW this BIG opportunity that they have tonight.
The Jets can change the FORTUNE of their franchise with the RIGHT pick tonight, I have very LOW expectations for them but they will somehow find a way to BLOW it, because that is what the Jets do. The Jets are already DEAD for this season.
I will have ANOTHER blog after the Draft tonight, so be on the lookout for that. As always, follow along on Twitter to see my INSTANT REACTION to who the Jets draft as the CORNERSTONE of their franchise.
