I will tell you that I am a very happy camper right now with the Jets picking Sam Darnold. I don’t think Darnold is the most pro ready quarterback in this class. That would be Josh Rosen. I don’t think Darnold has the highest upside of any quarterback in this class. That would be Josh Allen.

What I think is Darnold has the best combination of pro readiness and upside. There are things he does on the field that are stunning for a 20 year old. And there are still aspects of his game that I think he can clean up to take his game to the next level.

You never know for certain with any prospect, but I think the odds are very good that the Jets found their franchise quarterback. I really think we might remember tonight as the night things finally started changing for the better with the Jets.

I will have plenty of more thoughts in the hours and days ahead. I am sure they will be more cogent and insightful. I’m still in a bit of shock.

Tell me what you think of the selection.
