New York Jets Daily Josh Rosen

The New York Jets have to take Josh Rosen after what he said this week. Plus how many blue chip players are really in this draft?

Forever I’ve been on the Baker Mayfield to the New York Jets bandwagon. Lately, I’ve been teetering because of some late film watch, some recent interviews, and a gut feeling.

Here’s how it all breaks down:

  • Sam Darnold could be there if the Cleveland Browns overthink their decision.
  • Baker Mayfield will likely be available in any realistic scenario.
  • Josh Allen… I’m just going to hope is gone before pick No. 3.
  • While finally Josh Rosen. Some call him ‘The Rosen One’, oh wait, that’s just me? Okay then.

This is exactly why I love Rosen. He has an edge to him, but it’s different than a Mayfield edge. He’s got a quiet swagger to him, he is certainly outspoken, but at the same time, he has a refined quality to him.

I’m sure Jets fans would be happy with any of the aforementioned three (Mayfield, Darnold, Rosen), but that’s what makes this draft so damn intriguing. It could literally fall so many different ways, but that’s why the Jets deserve a lot of credit for having the guts to make the trade up so early so they were ahead of the curve.

It’s a common misconception to believe that there are 32 first round grades given every year. Actually quite the opposite. It often varies, NFL Draft Analyst Bucky Brooks says that number usually floats around 25, not 17, as Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said they have in his pre-draft conference.

Long story short that means this is a top heavy draft, so you better get them while they’re hot or you’ll miss out on the truly elite players in this draft. But as a Jets fan seeing that there’s plenty of depth in round two is a bit of a bummer, especially after the trade sent two of those prized picks away. I think I’ll feel better on Thursday night when we have our franchise quarterback.
