  1. Instead of cousins, how about signing Bridgewater, drafting OL or pass rusher in top 10 and project Jackson as QB of the future in the second?
  2. Why are Darnold & Rosen givens?

    The interesting question is whether Kerley will get reps now that he is back or if they will just give them to the rookies as they should.
  3. Cousins at a high price tag scares me. I would prefer someone like Bridgewater who may take a price it type of deal and draft a QB behind him.
  4. Baker Mayfield

    I agree with you. But I am not sure if the jets do, since Allen has prototypical QB traits that Macc has looked for in prior drafts. Mogglez has inside knowledge on jets board so I figured I would ask.
  5. Baker Mayfield

    What do you think (or your sources think) the board looks like? meaning, is Mayfield above or below Allen?
  6. Baker Mayfield

    I am hoping that Josh Allen does well in combine, etc and become the #3 qb taken by either Denver, Bills or some other team (not us). Then Baker is there for Jets (even with trade up). Also hoping some team falls in love with Lamar Jackson. The more QBs available the better.
  7. Baker Mayfield

    FYI - from Albert Breer Baker Mayfield Is a First-Round NFL Draft Pick Mute You Might Like Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia, Alabama Make College Football Playoff Quickly For most NFL scouts, there’s no need to look much farther than Russell Wilson to see why By Albert Breer December 05, 2017 It’s easy, after what Russell Wilson did on Sunday night (and what he’s done the last six seasons), to look back on his draft year and say, If he was 6' 4", he’d have gone in the Top 5 picks. It would’ve been a lot tougher to say such a thing before Wilson had started a single NFL game. But that’s exactly what Pete Carroll said five years and a few months ago. Wilson had just beaten out Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson for Seattle’s starting job, and I had Carroll on the phone a few days before the Seahawks’ opener against the Cardinals. Nationally, at that point, Wilson was more of a curiosity, especially considering the high-profile, first-round rookies who’d start that weekend: Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill and, ahem, Brandon Weeden. To everyone, at least, except Carroll and the Seahawks. “[If he was 6' 4"], he’d have been vying for be the first pick,” Carroll told me then. “He has everything you look for—all the records, the numbers, he did everything. He’d be right up there with Andrew [Luck], and you’d be trying to figure it out. That’s my opinion. I just look at him, and think that there’s nothing he can’t do.” Six years later, could all of that apply to Baker Mayfield? Brett Deering/Getty Images Over the next four months, that’s what the NFL will be trying to figure out, as they assess the guy whose play has stripped Saturday night’s Heisman ceremony of any drama and made it a coronation. Mayfield, like Wilson before him, is an undersized, oft-overlooked star who needed to transfer just to assure that he’d even have a shot to play. Based on the conversations I’ve had over the last few months with dozens of scouts, as well as what I’ve seen with my own eyes, I think I can make this one pretty simple: Baker Mayfield should be a first-round pick. He’s short. So was Wilson. And to be clear, that’s not irrelevant. There’s Darwinism in the fact that most great NFL quarterbacks are tall. Seeing the field is a significant piece to playing the position, and that’s easier to do from higher ground. So the question is whether or not Mayfield is an outlier. “He’s extremely talented,” said one AFC college scouting director. “Guys want to play for him, players believe in him, the staff believes in him. I’ve heard the comparisons to Brees, [Johnny] Manziel, Wilson, and there’s a little bit of all of them in his game. And he’s not Manziel in terms of the off-field stuff—he studies his ass off, he goes through his progressions, he’s not a typical spread QB. He has first-round ability.” “Big-time competitor and winner,” texted an AFC exec. “He’s on the short side, but that’s O.K. He’s mobile. Accurate. Passionate. He’s gonna be good.” The latter exec believes that Mayfield, who’s listed at 6' 1", will come in a shade over 6-foot, which is hardly a death sentence for NFL quarterbacks. In fact, it’d probably make him a shade taller than Brees and Keenum, and put him a couple inches taller than Wilson. All of which, as another AFC college scouting director put it, “is a problem only if a team wants to make it a problem. If a guy can make all the throws, it’s not. If it affects his play on the field, it is. Johnny didn’t see the field well because he didn’t prepare. The others know how to find windows and throwing lanes. They’re used to being 6-foot, and aware of the issues. I don’t think it’s a problem for Baker.” NFL 2018 NFL Mock Draft: Darnold One of Four First-Round QBs There are, of course, off-field flags with Mayfield. There was his February arrest for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting and fleeing in Fayetteville, Ark. There’s the on-field antics too, most notably the crotch-grab that prompted coach Lincoln Riley to strip him of his captainship for his final home game. And feelings on those incidents vary depending on who you talk to. Most scouts I’ve spoken to see his popularity with teammates and coaches, and his maniacal work ethic (which, again, Manziel lacked), and believe that, because his football character is beyond reproach, he’ll be O.K. A few others, on the other hand, see a punk who just doesn’t get it. Either way, Mayfield promises to be the story of the combine and lead up to the draft in Dallas, and we’ll get to see him take on one more good test before then, against Georgia in the Rose Bowl (and maybe two, should the Sooners advance to play either Clemson or Alabama in Atlanta for the national title). For now, though, my belief is plenty of teams see Mayfield as a second-round prospect, and enough like him to make it likely someone gets itchy and takes him in the first round. That is where I believe he should go. With the benefit of hindsight, we now know Wilson should’ve been a first-round pick in 2012. Consider what Carroll told me then, when I asked what was unique about his rookie quarterback. “Everything is,” he answered. “His smarts, his focus, his discipline, his work habits, his athleticism, his competitiveness, his confidence. Really, however you can rank them, he’s that high on that list in all those areas. Now, all of those of things will be in question in the real season, and he needs to back all that up. But if you observe him, if you know him, you think it’ll happen.” It did, of course. And a lot of good NFL people believe it will for Mayfield, too. Which is why I’m pretty sure he won’t have to wait too long on draft weekend.
  8. I would add that paying Ijalana 6mil to not play a snap is a waste of cap resources.
  9. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    I am curious, was there an article or some news that suggested the jets were very serious about Mayfield? I only see articles suggesting that they are heavily scouting Rosen, Darnold and Allen. I would be happy to hear they are also interested in Mayfield and Jackson for example.
  10. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    The main problem on the moving up theory is that it is contingent on someone wanting to move down. Are the teams in the top 2 slots going to be willing to pass on a potential franchise QB? Maybe only SF at this point.
  11. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    Have the jets been scouting Jackson or Mayfield? You only hear about them scouting Rosen, Darnold and Allen.
  12. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    I agree that Rosen is Macc's guy. I just can't see Macc successfully trading for him. In all likelihood, Rosen will be drafted 1 or 2. Only way jets stand a chance of getting that pick is if 49rs hold it. Browns are not trading it and Giants will not trade with jets. Not sure any other team is close to dethroning those teams for the top 2 picks.
  13. Need Darnold to come out no matter what. Pushes other QBs down to the jets. There is no way cleveland or Giants are trading their picks, especially to jets (in giants case) .
  14. Breer On Josh Allen

    I really want him to start playing well so that another team takes him high in the draft. Saves the jets from taking him and maybe slips another QB prospect down to jets.
  15. Bills bench Tyrod Taylor

    So the bills decide to tank after a few losses... Jets will look at this as one less playoff competitor.
