Should New York Jets Take A Quarterback In 2014 NFL Draft?
The New York Jets have a lot of holes to fill this offseason. The team’s brass has decided to retain head coach Rex Ryan, but the team is far from finished making moves this offseason. One of the major questions is if the Jets should consider selecting a quarterback in this upcoming draft.
The Jets have had trouble finding a franchise quarterback. They thought they found one when they traded up for Mark Sanchez in the 2009 NFL Draft, but that experience ended up going bad — and fast. Then this year they drafted Geno Smith in the second round, and he started every game this season. At times Smith looked decent, but most times he looked anemic as did the rest of the Jets’ offensive players.
This is a really deep quarterback draft in regards to talent. There is Teddy Bridgewater who is noted by almost every expert to be the first pick in the draft. If he is not he will definitely be the first quarterback taken, and the Jets have virtually no shot of getting him. Then there are a bunch of other talented quarterback such as Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, Aaron Murray, and Zach Mettenberger. If the Jets want Bortles or Manziel they will most likely have to trade up in order to take them.
In today’s NFL you need a quarterback to have a shot at winning a Super Bowl, and the Jets have struggled to find the guy who is supposed to lead them to the promised land. I think they need to take a quarterback in this draft and cut ties with Smith and Sanchez since neither of them are franchise quarterbacks.
The one player the Jets should get is Manziel. He will draw people into the stadium, and he can flat out make plays. If anyone saw his performance on New Year’s Eve they know how much of a competitor he is. He makes magic out of nothing and can motivate his teammates. He would be a great fit for the Jets and the fans would love him.
This is going to be a really busy offseason for the Jets. They need to find some receivers and secondary help, but they also have to take a quarterback in the draft, preferably Manziel.
