The New York Jets want a quarterback, and they are trying to make sure they get the man they want this Thursday. In recent weeks, the team traded with the Indianapolis Colts for their No. 3 pick, as the Jets moved up from No. 6. You do not make that kind of move to draft anything other than a franchise quarterback, which they would secure if they draft Josh Rosen from UCLA.
An incredible football mind, Rosen is certain to be a top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Not only did he show during his time at UCLA that he can dissect a defense, but he also showed he has the arm strength to make every throw at the NFL level. Some have questioned his determination, and commitment to the sport, but the Jets would really hit a home run if they can grab him at No. 3.
The Jets played better than expected last season, and they have some good talent on this roster. If they can bring in a legitimate starting quarterback, they should be able to finally turn the page on their losing ways. Josh McCown is back in the saddle for 2018, and they did sign Teddy Bridgewater, but whoever is picked at No. 3 will get every opportunity to win the job this summer.
