as bad as sanchez was, the jets offense won't look much better with a rookie qb if they don't improve the other positions on offense. if the jets took patterson on tennessee, they're instantly getting a home run hitter who can score in multiple ways. the draft is fairly deep at rb. i don't advocate taking a guard at 9, but i imagine they can get quality oline guys later on. they also need a good, strong right tackle. these voids can be addressed more easily, and with less controversy, than taking glennon at 9 if he's not rated that high on their boards. the team is not merely 1 qb away. they're half a team away. idzik would be wise not only to trade revis for what he can get, but also to explore trading back in the first round and picking up extra picks.
Seattle loved Wilson but waited to rd. 3. because he's 5'10" and they know not many teams were going to have him on their radar that early.
Even if they picked him in rd. 1 it would have been an excellent pick.
The Jets won't have that luxury due to Glennon's size and arm talent.
Guys like him go earlier than later.
I'm not against going in a different direction for pick #9 or trading back, I just want QBs with high ceilings like Glennon to be given strong consideration and the ones the Jets target come draft time.
BTW - everyone questioning Glennon's stats, accuracy, etc...
Go look at how Wilson did at NC State for 3 years.
