Right now, it's looking more and more possible that none of the top five teams in this year's NFL Draft will be selecting a quarterback. This just means that all four of this draft's big-name quarterbacks are going to be available for the New York Jets at the No. 6 pick: Deshaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky, Patrick Mahomes II, and DeShone Kizer.
Jets Are Definitely Going To Pickup A QB
Many Jets fans are wondering if the team would be selecting one, and if so, which one of the bunch will the Jets pick. According to NJ.com, it's an absolute yes, and as for the second question, CBSSports.com mock drafter Rob Rang strongly believes that it is going to be Deshaun Watson.
Rang: Jets Will Pick Watson
Rang has already projected a top five Picks that features Myles Garrett, Solomon Thomas, Jamal Adams, Jonathan Allen, and Marshon Lattimore, respectively. Here's why Rang thinks that the Jets are going to pounce on Watson, as the first ever quarterback taken in this year's NFL Draft:
According to Rang, adding a third young quarterback to compete with recent draft picks Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty is going to be bold, but with little evidence that either of the two are going to be the long-term answer at quarterback, Jets GM Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowles might have little to no choice but to exhaust all options.
Why Watson Is a Perfect Fit For Jets
Along with that, Watson could definitely be a candidate to watch. Many experts consider Watson as a polarizing player in the scouting community, showcasing his dual-threat ability to go with throwing 30 interceptions over the past two seasons. According to Niners Nation, Watson's undeniably impressive track record of playing his best under the shining bright lights could be more valued in New York than elsewhere. This makes Watson an excellent candidate to be chosen by the Jets in this year's draft.
