Mahomes is likely to be gone before the first pick of the 2nd round.  And you want him in the very late 3rd round.  /lol


I didn't say I wanted him at all I said I don't think he is worth a thought for us until late in the third. We already have two developmental qbs on our roster.

Except we really don't.

Petty showed very little last year, and any expectation that he will blossom into anything more than a #3 is projection.  I wanted to see him play more than anyone, he did, he didn't show us anything to warrant material continued investment (as a #1 QB prospect).

And Hack....well, I'll agree he's clearly developmental.  As to being anything more than that, ever, we'll have to see since he was so completely sheltered last year by the team despite his 2nd round selection.  Like everyone, I hope he's grown tremendously since his lolworthy preseason appearance.

I just cannot fathom the ongoing massive undervaluation of the QB (and the Offense as a whole) amongst Jets Fan.  Ready to punt on the position completely for a long-shot like Hack so we can draft yet more Safties or D-Linemen, I'll never ever understand that kind of logic.

When you have a Tom Brady, or a Ben Rothlisburger, you can get picky about draftign QB's.  When you're us, you have to do what it takes to get a legit guy, and today, we do not have a legit guy on the roster, we have one guy with a small chance (Hack) to years from now maybe be a legit guy, at best.

Make no mistake, we're right next to Cleveland for the worst QB franchise of the past 20 years.

I don't want us to ignore the qb position but I also don't think we need to reach (again) for a qb who we would have to baby into the position just to have a chance of him maybe developing into something serviceable. I would rather us take another d linemen who could come in and play right away for us at a professional level than waste a pick on a guy who should go two rounds later just because he is listed as a qb.

NFL.com allows you to look at each position drafted in each year.

Basically, over the last 10 years or so some very good QBs were picked top 3 or so, and then QBs get picked lower (sometimes way lower) in the 1st and 2nd round.

There are also QBs picked in lower rounds obviously.  That being said, it did not seem like the hit rate was that much better picking a QB late in the first round then in the 2nd round (which is probably where Macc got the idea to draft Hack in the second).

For example, the list of QBs picked later in the 1st round and the 2nd round over the last 10 years is:

Later 1st: Lynch, Manziel, Bridgewater, Manuel, Tannehill (8), Weeden, Locker, Gabbert, Ponder, Tebow, Sanchez (5), Freeman, Flacco, Brady Quinn, Leinart (10), Cutler (11).

2nd Round: Hack, Carr, Garropolo, Geno, Dalton, Kaepernick, Clausen, Pat White, Brohm, Henne, Kolb, Beck, Stanton, Kellen Clemens.

Based on a feel test, I would say that:

Mahomes is a late 1st round QB

Trubisky and Watson are mid-first rounders, but could be reached for.

The late 1st round QBs don't look that different than the 2nd rounds-it all a matter of scouting and coaching.

Understanding that the Hack pick could end up looking very bad if he proves completely inept, its not like teams pick QBs in the late 2nd round and find guaranteed success.  Plenty of the unsuccessful late 1st round./2nd round QBs were picked by successful GMs who are still gainfully employed.

Help me understand this, please.

Hack was expected, Pre-Draft, to be a mid-rounder.  

This year, Watson, Trubisky are both considered mid-1st-round prospects.

I hardly see how picking a QB at a spot they're ranked at is a reach.

Except we're going to (or should) play hack this year.  If he busts, we need another prospect in the pipeline, so we don;t have to play a draft pick right off in 2018.

Hack and Watson are mid-1st rounders.

They have similarities to many of the QBs I listed above.  They do not resemble top 5 picks.

All of those QBs were good college QBs, and most had flaws translating to the NFL.

All these QBs including Hack, how many National Championship have they taken there teams to ?
There is only one QB pick at 6 and that is Deshon Watson.
Is he a sure thing, of course not. Yet one thing we know for sure and that is, the kid is a winner.
Jets need to start gambling and start rolling the dice and stop playing the penny slots with the most important position on the field.
Give me a QB that has already proven he knows how to win as opposed to one who has potential to do so.

What fantasy world are you in were Hack was a mid-first rounder?

He was generally considered a 3rd rounder at the time of last year's draft.  Maybe a late 2nd, maybe an early 4th.

No one, literally, had Hack rated a first round talent.

 I'd change that to 19 years ... '98 was the Vinny T season that would skew us up a couple spots ;)

I meant Trubisky and Watson.  Apologies.  

Its amazing how many good QBs have been playing over 10 years.

Many of the great NFL QBs were not college champions.  

Many college champion QBs were not successful in the NFL.

I want names of the people who voted for this in the range of (A)--->(C-).  I wanna know who actually believes that picking Mahomes with the 6th overall pick would be anything short of a failed abortion.

Yeah, because only negativity, cynicism,  and prepubescent drama are allowed on this forum. Most of those people who think it would be a good pick are probably reluctant to post in the thread because they don't want to deal with the moronic responses they'd get.

I know highlight reels make everyone look like a star, but ive watched highlights reels of mitchell, watson and mohomes and patrick M is BY FAR the most impressive. 

The kid throws a mean long ball. He has a knack. Even in tight coverage, to get that ball just where his wr can snag it. Ive seen him ru  around the pocket eluding sacks and throwing deep balls for huge gains. 

I am on the mahones train fo sho
