Draft Rumours: Jets Looking at QB's Early

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Here we are with another rumour to keep you entertained for the next couple of hours

Ian Rapoport has an interesting little note this afternoon regarding the Jets and QB's

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?
