Each year SB Nation holds a mock draft where the team sites take on the role of general manager. The Browns took Sam Darnold first overall. The Giants followed by taking Bradley Chubb second.
I was on the clock next. My selection was Josh Rosen, the quarterback out of UCLA.
This was the scenario the Jets were counting on when they traded up from No. 6 to No. 3. A team that desperately needs a long-term solution at quarterback gets the most polished quarterback in this year’s Draft class. This pick is so obvious that it doesn’t need much analysis beyond that.
Unlike years past, this one did not require a ton of thought. If Sam Darnold is gone, and Rosen is available I think the Jets are picking Rosen.
