With the Jets, Sam Darnold Can Create His Own Legacy

  • 2018 NFL Draft Which QB works best with what the Jets have in place

The Jets were in search of a quarterback after trading to move up from No. 6 to the No. 3 pick, where they nabbed the 20-year-old Darnold over Wyoming's Josh Allen and UCLA's Josh Rosen, two other passers who went later in the top-10.

General manager Mike Maccagnan could opt to wheel and deal a bit on the draft's final day, as he did past year when he made three trades to add picks. "Not growing up a Jets fan, I don't understand it quite to that extent".

"We just sort of sat tight and had to see how it unfolded", Maccagnan said. And once you get to know Sam - and we spent some time around him - everything in his personality really came out and along with his drive. They now have a crowded room at the position with Josh McCown returning and Teddy Bridgewater signing in free agency.

Darnold has been lauded for his leadership, poise and quick release, along with his ability to extend plays and get himself and the offense out of trouble. General manager Mike Maccagnan is ready to finalize his 2018 NFL Draft class with more players that should be able to provide quality depth and hopefully, be hidden gems that pan out well.


"I like his competitiveness", Jets coach Todd Bowles said.

Former Trojans starter Carson Palmer produced a solid career for the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals, but he never played in a Super Bowl. He also threw threw 13 interceptions and lost eight fumbles, the most fumbles lost by any player in the country.

Remember when it seemed as if they could win no more than one or two games - or even none - last season to have a path to Darnold? On the bright side for Mitchell, it is notoriously hard to project picks in the later rounds and his experience as a key contributor to the USC offense over the past four seasons give him a great chance of being drafted.
