Default Take Deshaun Watson at #6

The Jets have missed on a franchise quarterback for what seems like an eternity. Now is the time to finally make it happen. Deshaun Watson is that guy. He personifies class and he is a proven winner.
Look, the Jets are in rebuilding mode even though they won't admit it. They have needs everywhere. But if you are going to rebuild a team, you have to start at the quarterback position. There are no free agents left that are worth it. We don't have a franchise quarterback on our roster. We have seven draft picks this year and can make moves to even get more but we need to start with Watson.

Even though many mock drafts have him going to Jets, I could see him chosen before #6. This assumes the Bears want him.

I think the Jets would be better waiting till next years draft that will probably be a better QB draft.

Our secondary needs improving, and this could be the draft class to help us do that in the early rounds.

If there was an Andrew Luck or Cam Newton sitting there, a QB who we knew we could plug in and would improve our offense right away, then take him.

I just don't think there is an obvious QB in this years class who could do that for us.

Better to bring in a veteran and see what Petty and Hackenberg can do at training camp while we rebuild.

Petty is a 'veteran' now.

Isn't next year the year for QB's in the draft? I rather sign Cutler to a 1-year deal similar to Fitz and see what happens. Fill the rest of the roster with younger talent in order to draft a QB next year.

Passing up on Fournette or Cook is a bigger deal to me. We have no idea what Forte or Powell will give us.

I may catch a lot of flack for this statement but here goes. Watson, as good as he may be, isn't what we need. I don't much care who the starting QB is next season as long as it's not Kapernick, simply because I really dislike him, or Petty, or Hackenburg because they're not ready. They can bring in Cutler, Daniel, Manziel, keep Geno, or heck, even Osweiler. It really doesn't matter to me. I think that if Petty isn't ready to step into that job in 2018 we should release him. He's not a rookie any more. What I want to see is the "O" line built up so tough that no defense in the league can even slow it down and the defense made so fast and aggressive that offenses that we face go backwards more then they go frontwards. To come even close to accomplishing that we need to draft the right players on both sides of the ball and the QB situation can be easily be handled next season when the QB draft looks more promising if Petty or Hack don't work out.

Improving our O Line through the draft is something Beresford has talked about for years. Just skimming through mocks, a lot of them have us drafting Leonard Fournette at six.

That's all well and good, but even the best running back needs a good O Line in front of him.

This reminds me of when the talk was of Johnny Manziel being drafted by Dallas. It was really hyped by the media. Manziel was still on the board and the Cowboys drafted....an offensive lineman. Not the sexy pick or the headline maker, but to Dallas it made sense.

Now Dallas has one of the best O Lines in the league, and one of the best running backs in their backfield.

We're not going to fix our team in one draft. Just pick up the players we need piece by piece. The right fit instead of the headline maker.

Whatever he turns out to be he may or may not be available to us. I guess we'll see.
