~ ~ jets poised to make NFL draft history.. ~ ~


Recommended Posts

The Jets will pull off a lowly NFL first at the end of the month, assuming they draft a quarterback.

According to ESPN’s Evan Kaplan, New York will become the first team in the Common Draft Era, since 1967, to draft two quarterbacks with top-three picks in a four-year span. The Jets used the third overall pick on Sam Darnold in 2018, but he was traded to the Panthers Monday after three disapointing seasons in New York.

With Darnold gone, it’s all but guaranteed the Jets will use the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft on a quarterback. BYU gunslinger Zach Wilson seems like a lock for the slot, but there are other options at the position, including Ohio State’s Justin Fields.

As long as the pick is a quarterback, though, the Jets won’t just have a new face of the franchise. They’ll also have a spot in the record books.

Yeah it's hard not to be colored by the past.  But this is what is right for the NYJ RIGHT NOW.

we're finally getting our sh*t together to hopefully break this cycle of utter dysfunction. 

i hope so    😇
