There aren’t many rumors one should buy into the day before the Draft. I tend to believe two types of rumors. The first are ones broken by impeccable insiders like Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport. The second come when multiple reporters are saying the same thing.
Take what we have gotten from Tony Pauline and Jay Glazer today.
* In the last hour, multiple sources tell me there’s a late push for Josh Rosen in the New York Jets’ war room. We mentioned Rosen was still in the running with the Jets at the same time we quoted an insider stating Baker Mayfield to the Jets is a “done deal.” The belief is still that Mayfield still ends up a Jet if he’s available when the team is called to the clock, but the Rosen push is on.
Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of NFL Total Access: Draft Preview, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer suggested Gang Green’s focus has shifted to UCLA’s Josh Rosen.
Until the past 24 hours, general managers in communication with Glazer believed the Mayfield smoke signals emanating from Florham Park. Now those same general managers suspect Rosen is the object of the Jets’ desire.
”I think Josh Rosen is the guy that they’re going to zero in on,” Glazer added for emphasis.
The next 24 hours should be wild.
