Big Mac passed on Watson and Mahomes for Jamal Adams because he had Christian Hackenburg on the roster, who never played a single down in the NFL and if I'm not mistaken, that has never happened in the history of the NFL to a healthy player.  I could be wrong, but I think I'm right, that Hackenberg is the highest selected player who was healthy and never saw the field.

Big Mac is arguably the worst GM in the history of the sport.

 

Yep.  Here you go.  Here's the list, the only one on here who's career wasnt ruined or halted because of injury was Christian Hackenberg.

The 15 highest-drafted players of the last decade who have never played a down in the NFL - masslive.com

Round 2, Pick 51: QB Christian Hackenberg, New York Jets (2017)

 
 

A one-time prized quarterback prospect from Penn State, Hackenberg showed little development during his time as a backup in New York. In 2018, he was traded for a conditional seventh-round pick to the Oakland Raiders, who waived him shortly after, negating the trade and making him a free agent.

 
 

Hackenberg briefly played for the Eagles during the preseason before spending some time with the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad.

 
 

He last appeared as a quarterback for the AFF’s Memphis Express.

Mac is worse, no question.

I honestly don't think he understood the very basic fundamentals of how to build an NFL roster.  

How can someone rise to the ultimate height of ones profession without even having the simplest understanding of how to do their job properly?  

It's very hard for me to believe this is the case, but I find myself having to ask the question - because I can see no other logical explanation for so many of the choices he made.

Maybe someone else can give me a more reasonable explanation? - Seriously

On one hand, MacCagnan missed on every pick for 6 years. He desperation traded for the 3rd best QB as a PR stunt after whiffing in Kirk Cousins. He literally made us worse than the Idzik/Rex fiasco.

On the other hand, Gettleman took Barkley, and in doing so left the Jets to choose Darnold over Allen. In one Swift move, Gettleman doomed 2 franchises…  with a “yellow blazer” rationale that he reversed the second he chose Daniel Jones.

From what I heard the Jets had Rosen higher on their board than Allen.

Taking safeties with your first two picks (one being the sixth overall) was hands down the dumbest ******* move by a front office exec, ever.

Mac was worse.

I’d take the safeties over Mehki Becton and Denzel Mims

And yet many here are pressing for JD to draft Hamilton at #4

This wouldn’t shock me in the least.

It's actually a pretty interesting article if you haven't read it - but Rosen was 3 on their board.

When the Jets dealt up to the No. 3 spot in the draft in March, they’d identified three quarterbacks—Darnold, Mayfield, and UCLA’s Josh Rosen—they were good with.

Just a total indictment of Macc. You couldn't try to do a worse job.

Deciding that Mahomes and Watson couldn’t turn around the locker room culture and then trading up for Sam wasn’t great strategery 

gettleman just a garden variety failure oh his QB pick not working out

What's worse is when he traded up - Rosen was likely the guy they had to be thinking was going to be the guy there..

Imagine thinking he was the guy to turn around the Locker Room Culture...ha!

Especially when you have NO QB.  He sat pat with Fitzpatrick and passed on a draft class full of QB's.

If I remember correctly, Fitzy was already gone at that point.  They had Hackenberg, Bryce Petty, and Josh McCown on the roster.
