Who Do Analysts Have the Jets Picking at No. 3?

Analysts Believe Green & White Will Select a Quarterback at No. 3


Since the Jets traded up to the No. 3 spot in the NFL Draft, many analysts believe the team has its eyes on a signal caller.

Mel Kiper Jr. — ESPN — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
The Jets traded up with the Colts to get a quarterback. Now the question is: Which ones will be available? There's a legitimate chance the Jets have to settle for their third option, but it's possible they like three quarterbacks in this class. Rosen has rare arm talent and is the most NFL-ready of this group, but his injury history (shoulder in 2016, concussions in 2017) has been a discussion among teams.

Bucky Brooks — NFLN — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
The Jets mortgage the farm to get their quarterback of the future. Rosen is an ideal fit as a classic pocket passer with a high football IQ and a polished game.

Charles Davis — NFLN — QB Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma)
It's Broadway Baker. The Jets should dispatch Broadway Joe Namath on draft night to welcome him to the organization, AND present him with a mink coat to match Namath's iconic garb.

Dane Brugler — — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
What we know: The Jets traded a king's ransom for this pick in order to draft a quarterback. What we don't know: Which quarterbacks will be left for them? With both Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles needing to win now, Rosen might be their best option.

Matt Miller — Bleacher Report — QB Josh Allen (Wyoming)
The New York Jets made the trade up to No. 3 overall to secure a franchise quarterback, and in this scenario, they get lucky the Giants passed on a quarterback. Now, general manager Mike Maccagnan gets to pick his guy.

My belief has been throughout this process that the Jets covet Josh Allen. I reported back in November sources at Wyoming told me no team has done more work on Allen than the Jets. He's a big (6'5", 233 lbs), athletic, strong-armed quarterback with the ideal tools to run offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates' scheme.

Albert Breer — MMQB — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
I like the personality fit and on-field match between OC Jeremy Bates and Rosen, who's seen as a "not for everyone" type of kid. He is the most evolved and natural passer in this group.

Lance Zierlein — — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
We all believe the Jets traded up for a QB, but which one will they pick? This club needs to find the win column quickly, so they go with the game-ready option in Rosen.

Chad Reuter — — QB Josh Allen (Wyoming)
The Giants got their man, and now the Jets land a QB, which is the reason they made the pre-draft deal with the Colts in the first place. The question is whether the team will prefer Allen's potential or Baker Mayfield's physical skills and leadership style.
