The New York Jets don’t have a franchise quarterback, and they definitely need to address that situation in the 2017 NFL Draft. While I am not fond of the quarterbacks in this draft, the Jets like one player quite a bit.
New York has the No. 6 overall pick in the upcoming draft, and according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, the Jets have their eye on one of the quarterbacks expected to be selected in the first round.
Cimini wrote “the Jets are very intrigued by North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky, widely regarded as the top QB prospect. They will be present Tuesday at his pro day and could return to Chapel Hill, North Carolina for a private workout.”
With the Jets signing Josh McCown it allows them to blossom Trubisky or any quarterback under his knowledge. He has been a very reliable quarterback over the years, and everyone says he is one of the best back-ups because he helps young guys understand the game. This is a smart move to let a rookie grow under his presence.
