NFL Draft: Breaking down the Jets' positions of need

NFL Draft: Breaking down the Jets' positions of need

The Bills traded up to No. 5 with the Broncos in order to draft quarterback Josh Allen in the latest NFL.com mock draft.

The quarterback conundrum is more like it. QB prospects don't always pan out as has been shown the past few years. He could get cute and choose running back Saquon Barkley or defensive end Bradley Chubb first, let the Giants and Jets have their pick at quarterback and still get a good quarterback with the fourth pick - Josh Rosen or Baker Mayfield.

What this year's quarterback crop lacks in clarity, it makes up for in complexity.

There's the Sam Darnold contingent, which sees the two-year Southern Cal starter as the safest choice, the one who checks all the positive boxes.

Now as you know I'm a big stats guy and do many of my blogs breaking down the numbers inside the game. Maybe the Browns should take the two best players at #1 and #4 overall and wait for the quarterback they really want via trade or draft at a later date.

Whilst the league does not start until the Autumn, the draft gives everyone a chance to bet on who they think might be picked first, and also on each position.

For the rest of the teams near the top of the draft, they simply must adopt a wait-and-see approach.

As I say all the time, these pre-NFL Draft rumors are complete garbage. They re-signed Josh McCown, the starter last year, in the offseason; signed Teddy Bridgewater, who's still coming back from a severe knee injury almost two years ago; and have holdovers Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. The year before, the Rams went all the way up to one to go get (Jared) Goff.

Because the Saints are in position to contend now, and given the narrowing window to win it all with Brees, New Orleans could seize an opportunity to trade draft picks for veterans. Who do the Giants take?


Finding the quarterback of the future is Mike Maccagnan's top priority, which is why he moved up in the first round. There is certainly no shortage of useless information for Cleveland Browns fans.

"Is that an aberration or a trend?"

"That's what you were talking about in terms of the fumbles of Darnold". "I've been addressing it this offseason". If I'm John Dorsey, my fate is in my hands with the quarterbacks. "Some people say he's like a 'Johnny Manziel Jr.,' but I don't know that I'd go that far".

I want to add one side note here. He was First Team All-Pro six times and made the second team another three times.

"I'm extremely confident in myself", Allen said, "and we're working on it and there's no doubt in my mind we'll figure it out".

A third writer does have Mayfield going first-overall. They have another veteran, Drew Stanton.

You can watch on the Sky Sports Action channel. "So I don't think he's going past 6, and if he stays at 2, as much as he likes his hog molly, I still think that Barkley will be the guy". Furthermore, he's had to answer questions about his dedication to the sport.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Saints general manager Mickey Loomis has been around long enough to appreciate the fleeting nature of success in the National Football League, particularly as it relates to draft bonanzas and busts.

"I love football with all of my heart and soul", Rosen insisted.
