Is there a zero percent chance the New York Jets take Josh Rosen? Plus a new locker room update on 1 Jets Drive.
The only thing that has been narrowed down for New York Jets fans is that they’re taking ‘a’ quarterback with the No. 3 pick. But which one, specifically?
They would absolutely take all three other QBs before Rosen.

This is a bit of a shocking concept. Everything we’ve heard leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft has stated that Josh Rosen is the “safest” quarterback and the one with the “highest” floor. In other words, there’s an extremely low chance that Rosen will be a bust.
The consensus among Jets fans that I’ve polled so far is simple. The 2018 NFL Draft will be considered an immediate success if they come away with Rosen or Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, while everyone (generally speaking) seems unified in their stance against Wyoming’s Josh Allen.
We’ve been beating a relatively dead horse over the last several months on all of these quarterback prospects. NFL QB whisperer Bruce Arians has said many times that the two things that collegiate quarterbacks don’t improve on at the next level are accuracy and anticipation (as Allbright puts it).
If you can’t hit the broad side of a barn in college, how are you going to do it when bigger, faster, and stronger players are running at you at the next level? That’s what I thought.

You’ve heard the idiom “Never judge a book by its cover,” right? Well, the same goes for a tweet. At first glance, the above tweet seems to be about a new Jets player, Avery Williamson, revealing his new jersey number. But if you look beyond that there’s a unique update to the lockers at 1 Jets Drive.
Apparently players now have their alma mater and their home state right under their name. It’s such a subtle thing, but a really cool addition.
