Geno will never be more than an average quarterback and you don't win super bowls with an average quarterback. Jets need to keep drafting QB's till they find their franchise QB. Jimmy looks like a nice QB and I would take him round 2 for sure if he us there. Trading back from 18 and picking up another pick to get Jimmy is also a good option. Maybe throw in Geno for a bag of balls too.
You can win with an average QB. Dilfer was an average QB and won with the Ravens. Problem is Eugene is not even an average QB. He just plain sucks and is the type who will try to win the game rather than carry out the game plan, which he cant because of his inability to read defenses, lousy footwork, terrible instincts, pseudo leadership and an immature attitude. Dilfer knew his limitations perfectly, hence he was a decent fit for a QB starved team like the Ravens. He didn't need to do much. As far as Eugene is concerned, he cant do much but will force his will, like Sanchez and self-destruct. He will never ever be nothing more than a backup. Its just a matter of time.
I like your idea of trading back from #18 and finding a way to grab Jimmy. And oh yea, only under one condition - they take Eugene off our hands.
