Albert Breer notes that the Jets are holding private workouts with quarterback Draft prospects Pat Mahomes from Texas Tech and Davis Webb from Cal.
Jets on QB circuit. Previously worked out DeShaun Watson, DeShone Kizer. Private workouts with Pat Mahomes and Davis Webb in the works, too https://t.co/gTUXWjmHE6— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 30, 2017
Webb and Mahomes were actually teammates at Texas Tech before Webb transferred to Cal.
There is no great shock here. It would be more surprising if the Jets were not doing thorough research on the top quarterback prospects. Whenever you see stories about the Jets working out a prospect, people comment on how the Jets are keeping busy. That’s why these people have jobs. They get paid to examine these prospects thoroughly.
The projections on these two have a wide range. The sixth pick would likely be too high for either, but I have seen some educated guesses they both could go later in the first round.
The Jets have been linked with other quarterback prospects. They surely will be linked with more before the Draft arrives.
