Seems like everyone and there brother is saying jets are trying to trade up for Geno...
Jets believed to be targeting Geno in move up ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported on SportsCenter Friday that the Jets are trying to trade up in the draft's second round, and are "pretty clearly" targeting West Virginia QB Geno Smith.
"A Jets team official has confirmed that the Jets are making calls to move up in the second round," Sal Pal stated. "And the question is, 'What are they targeting?' It's pretty clear it's a quarterback. And from everything that we're hearing, it's pretty clear it could be Geno Smith." Paolantonio believes the Jets may need to leapfrog the Eagles at No. 35 in order to confidently secure Smith. The Jets currently have the 39th overall selection.
Report: Jets looking to trade up for QB ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets have made calls to "multiple teams" about trading up from No. 39 in an attempt to select a quarterback.
The smoke that the Jets are eyeing a day-two quarterback is turning to fire. Per Schefter, the Jets "debated" West Virginia's Geno Smith at No. 13. The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Smith was the No. 1 QB on New York's board. With a number of QB-needy teams picking ahead of them, the Jets might not get their man if they can't successfully move up. According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Lions are "actively shopping" the 36ht pick, but that might not get the job done for Geno.
OMG No. Who the f cares if Jax or Philly draft Geno SMith? It'll be their freaking loss, not ours. He is so overrated. No need to trade up here. No need to draft a QB at 39 either, let alone waste a PRECIOUS pick by trading up. Even if Philly or Jax takes Smith and the other drafts Glennon or Barkley, there will still be one of them as well as Wilson, Bray, Dysert, Scott to be had in round 4. There is not a tremendous difference among the group to lose out on a great opportunity to trade back in round 2 and get more picks.
And Schefter is more often right than many of the others too.
What if he fulfills his potential and makes us a great team for years? Shouldn't we take that chance? He is the best QB on the board and a great athlete. We've gone so long without a franchise QB, we should be trying to find one every year since that position is what makes teams great.
