Ian Rapoport has an interesting little note this afternoon regarding the Jets and QB's
#Jets are doing a lot of groundwork for QBs that may land in the first round or early in the 2nd round. Watch for Carr, watch for Garoppolo— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 8, 2014
File this under due diligence. Will the Jets select a quarterback early in the 2014 NFL draft? quite possibly. However I would still consider it a long shot, unless there is real value to be found.
Geno Smith had a tough first year, there is no shying away from that. However he had one of the worst supporting casts in football and he showed enough to warrant getting a shot with some viable weapons.
Saying that, if the Jets are sold on a QB and he's available at a good price, they owe it to themselves to explore the option. Geno hasn't done enough to solidify our faith in him without question.
I personally like Garoppolo, and could be on board with Carr if the organization really believed in him. However I can't say I'd be delighted with us going with a quarterback before the 3rd round, 4th if possible. That's just me, what do you guys think?
