Happy draft day to one and all.
We're only hours away from finding out who the Jets will select with their first round selection. You never know what to believe, but according to Todd McShay, the Jets still have interest in moving up for Mariota.
Mock 6.0 (FINAL) done. Mildly surprised how many teams still legit interested in moving up. NYJ, PHI, CLE to 2 (Mariota). ATL, NO (edge def)— Todd McShay (@McShay13) April 30, 2015
We don't know if this is a smokescreen or if the team has a genuine interest in moving for the Oregon prospect. What I will say is, if you go through the evaluation process and you believe you're in striking distance of a franchise QB, you pull the trigger. It's the most valuable position in all of football.
The Jets could have serious interest, or they could be putting up a smokescreen, who knows. I did read last night that the Titans were looking for three 1st round draft picks for the 2nd overall selection, to which most people have laughed at. The beauty of today? You will have a number of rumors to discuss, dismiss or get excited about.
