Mike Maccagnan, the general manager of Jets, held the final press conference of his ahead of 2018 NFL Draft, within which the Jets choose third general and might snap quarterbacks Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, or maybe Josh Allen. Below are a few of the deducts from what Maccagnan stated.
Tension at No. 3?
There’s, certainly, a lot of stress which arrives with obtaining a quarterback 3rd overall that is certainly what the Jets is going to do. However, Maccagnan said he endeavors to “place that to the side” and establish his choice “in a vacuum,” though not pondering about the significant implications of obtaining a prospective franchise quarterback at No. three.
QB rankings done?
Maccagnan stated that, indeed, the top end of the draft board of Jets is actually complete. However, he mentioned that, in his mind, he did not wish to actually establish his quarterback pecking order in stone unless the Jets hosted the final quarterback prospect of theirs, Sam Darnold, on a pre-draft visit. Only after that, Maccagnan said, might be he actually “put it to bed,” with this pecking order. “I believe we’ve a very great experience of just how we notice them,” Maccagnan said. “You have an order, thus of course, you like your order.”
DRAFT Board SET?
Even though the top end of the Jets’ draft board is actually set, Maccagnan said the talent evaluators of his continue to be tweaking the rear end of the board. The Jets have one choice each in Rounds 4-7, when are going to be selected on Saturday, the draft’s ultimate. The Jets might get some useful level there, thus they wish to ensure they’ve their draft board set simply right. Though, the top end is completed.
PETTY, HACKENBERG FATES
After the Jets outline a quarterback on April 26, they are going to contain 5 quarterbacks on the roster of theirs. Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater, along with the draft pick are not going anyplace. Christian Hackenberg and/or Bryce Petty might be cut, although. Maccagnan refused to theorize on the future of theirs.
