One of the most intriguing quarterbacks in the draft -- Jimmy Garoppolo -- is visiting Wednesday with the New York Jets, according to a league source. 

The Jets bolstered the quarterback position by signing Michael Vick to a one-year contract, but they're obviously doing their homework for the draft. Garoppolo, who broke Tony Romo's school records at Eastern Illinois, is interesting because he's considered a top-40 pick. If he doesn't sneak into the bottom of the first round, he could very well be picked at the top of the second by a team such as the Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 39). The Jets own the 49th pick. 

The Jets also have met this week with Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas, although he's regarded as a mid-round prospect. 

Could the Jets select a quarterback one year after taking Geno Smith with the 39th overall choice? It would be a surprise if they grab a quarterback in the top three rounds, but never say never. We're talking about a general manager, John Idzik, who belonged to the Seattle Seahawks when they drafted Russell Wilson in the third round even though they had signed Matt Flynn to a significant free-agent contract.

The Gino Carmazzi theory of drafting QB's dictates all italian QBs are awesome, except for Gino Carmazzi. 

 

 

 

Really hope this guy drops to a point where Idzik would consider it value. but fear he goes in rd 1. 

 

Teams make 1st round QB reaches every year. The supply is just too barren.

Once Garoppolo whips up a pot of his family-recipe ragu alla bolognese, Idzik'll trade everything to move up and take him at 1 overall.

Not a fan of Geno, but we can't bring a qb in in the first 3 rounds. Would absolutely destroy any confidence he has left.
First Vick, then a draft pick.

We should've never drafted Geno in the first place, but now that we have, give him a shot.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Italians in leadership positions are typically low character guys, pass. I've seen plenty of movies and Columbus was an evil dude that played for Spain, butt fumbling his way to the the wrong continent.

He will be picked near the top of the second round by one of the QB needy teams that bypasses the suspects in round 1.

We can't really afford to take a QB in the top 3 rounds... If one of the top 3 QBs falls to round 2-3 then we should consider it, otherwise our focus should be on CB, WR, S, and TE.

Nice.....If the Jets draft him I am asking my wife to make a nice lasagna with a couple of braciole. Of course knock down some campari and soda, maybe a little grappa and celebrate.
