All the whiners should watch this in it's entirety.  I'd be quite happy with a swing for the fences if he's there.

I’m already convinced nobody has a rats ass clue. Truth is I’m just happy we moved up and taking a shot with a young signal caller that could be a franchise QB. All we can really hope for. No Peyton Manning’s in this draft.  It’s a damn crapshoot I tell you .

Josh Allen grew up in Firebaugh, California, a two-stoplight town of 7,500 residents in the middle of a farming region. He finished his college career at Wyoming, so, yes, it could be culture shock if he's drafted by the New York Jets.

Allen said he'd relish the opportunity to play in Gotham and rescue the Jets from quarterback purgatory.

"Absolutely," he said Friday in a phone interview with ESPN. "They’re a couple of pieces away from winning a lot of football games. I really enjoyed the coaching staff and I think it would be a really good fit. I think they’ve got some weapons on offense and they have a really young defense that’s ready to win right now."

Josh Allen said he'd love to be drafted by the Jets and that he's ready to handle the New York media. Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports

The Jets own the third pick in the draft. Some mock drafts project Allen to go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns. If that doesn't happen, he probably will be available for the Jets, who have performed an inordinate amount of due diligence on Allen. In fact, they were the only team to travel to Laramie, Wyoming, for a private workout.

For the record, the Jets also conducted private workouts with Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and UCLA's Josh Rosen. They skipped a private workout with USC's Sam Darnold. All four visited the Jets' facility.

"First they got me on the board," said Allen, recalling his private time with Jets officials. "They gave me a quick lesson on their offense and how they handle themselves, then I went up on the board and regurgitated it back to them. I talked about some of my plays and the things we did at Wyoming. Then we went down on the field and threw a lot of footballs. They had some free agents come out and I made all the throws, so there’s no question about that."

The Jets weren't finished with Allen. They brought him to their facility for a pre-draft visit, and he met with coach Todd Bowles and offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates for the second time. He also got a chance to meet with members of he defensive staff and had a sitdown with CEO Christopher Johnson.

Allen is a risk-reward pick. He has "the biggest upside in the draft, a really exciting player," NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said Friday. "Obviously, he has to learn how to be a little more accurate. He has to throw with timing and anticipation."

There are no character issues with Allen, who has an upbeat personality and is considered a good leader. During the run-up to the draft, he's working with Hyundai, promoting its “Rolling with the Rookies” series. He doesn't sound concerned about the prospect of dealing with the pressures of New York.

"I think where I come from is going to help me with a market such as New York," he said. "I’m not afraid of the media. I think I know how to handle them because I’ve been around them enough. I understand the New York media is a lot more magnified than most markets, but I’m up for that challenge. I'd definitely be suitable and I’d be primed for a market like that."

As opposed to you whining about whoeve we take like we all know you'll do?  Sorry I'm not that miserable or wasted so much time repeating the name Minkah over and over again.  And have been consistent.  Don't get why you give a shlt anyway.

I'm going to start calling our GM "Tape Measure Macc" if he takes Allen.  His entire pre-draft evaluation seems to consist of how big a guy is and how far he can throw the football.

Did you see the combine?  He blew away the other guys.  Not just on distance, but he threw some nice touch passes and showed excellent mobility.  Regardless, he's 4th on my list because of the risk, but he's definitely an interesting prospect.  He's more than just a big arm.

Would anyone be surprised to learn that the Jets also had private workouts with Mayfield and Rosen, but that Allen was the only one who let the cat out of the bag?

I think the surprising thing here is only one team wanted a private meeting with Allen.

What's hilarious about this type of reaction is that it's all premised on two Jets-centric things:

1) The fans utter lack of faith in Macc's ability to evaluate a QB prospect, and

2) The fans utter lack of faith in Bowles and the coaching's staff's ability to develop a QB prospect.

If the Jets had a competent QB evaluator and competent coaching staff with an ability to develop QBs, then at 3 Josh Allen would be a no brainer.  You'd be high-fiving in the draft war room after you handed in that card.  But because of the Jets internal issues Allen is an incredibly risky selection.

Nope. It’s my lack of faith in Josh Allen. I would say he’s a risky selection for any team.

A lot of misdirection going on out there. The Browns haven't met with Barkley or Chubb, but I don't think that takes either guy off the board at #1 or #4. I have no problem with the Jets doing some straight up due diligence. I also won't freak out if Allen is the pick. Mac is gonna live or die by this selection, I hope he does so on his #1 choice.

No question, his ceiling is amazing.  Dude can throw 55 years on the run, easy.  Regardless do you accept the risk, or go with someone safer.  Sometimes no guts, no glory.

My preference is Darnold rosen Allen mayfield honestly so yea I’d take him over Baker.  The mayfield love is a bit out of control in these parts IMO

The Browns wouldn’t draft Barkley if they had the first 4 picks in the draft.

If allen were the pick a few years ago nobody would blink, but now the fan base isn’t ready to embrace an all or nothing prospect.

also, it’s hard to get around the notion that allen simply doesn’t have the skills for bates’ offense, and whether we like this or not, that probably rules him out.  

When we first traded up to #3, the debate was allen or mayfield.  As rumors shifted the browns pick to allen, that’s when the jets were linked with mayfield heavily since the thinking was that the giants would take darnold and the jets preferred mayfield to Rosen.  

Now, it seems possible that the jets may actually choose among darnold/mayfield/Rosen.  And you know what, i still don’t know if the jets would take darnold, but i hope they would.

So true. 

You know what I would love to know ?  I would love to know I the Jets draft Mayfield or Darnold and that player fell off a cliff, would Jet fans stop Monday morning Qbing every move this franchise make . Coincidentally, if they took Allen and he solved a position that has been vacant since “let there be light” was spoken, would some of you folks give it a rest ?

Darnold, Mayfield, Allen, Rosen for me.  Picking Allen, or Mayfield will require testicles, but I'm intriqued with what they would bring to the table.

An alpha completes 56% of his passes, but he completes them with crazy hard gusto.

Point taken and it’s a concern 

Not a baker fan but he could turn out to be something special who knows.  I think this J Allen will be best QB in this draft followed by Darnold.

Nope, the same people bitching about us potentially drafting Allen would be the same people complaining about us passing on him if he becomes a franchise qb.

It doesn't, but he does fit the profile of a previous Qb Maccagnan fell in love with. If the private workout was in fact with the Jets, my gut says he's the pick.

Maybe they want to make sure that what they saw at the Senior Bowl and Combine wasn't a mirage.
