Adam Schefter says the Jets are working the phone to try and move up, presumably for West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith who fell out of the first round last night.
Jets have made calls today to multiple teams to try to move up from 39th spot in second round to draft QB. Debated Geno Smith at No. 13.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 26, 2013
As always, it would depend on the terms of a trade. As long as the compensation is not too bad, Geno in the second round is a lot less of a risk than Geno in the first round. If you invest something as valuable as a high first round pick in a quarterback, you are committing to him for a long time. Not so much with a second round pick.
I had too many concerns about his college system and performance against good competition to feel good about a first round pick. In the second round, his accuracy, mobility, and decision making intrigue me a lot. There is a lot of good to build upon.
