    Suspected this was the case as they made the move to 3 immediately following Rosen/Mayfield workouts.

    For all the Allen vs Mayfield debating I did before the draft, glad it worked out the way it did.

    Breer's turned out to be a solid reporter imo. It appeared he had a good handle on what was going on with the team and gave good objective reports. None of the horse shit and hit pieces that come from the likes of that creep Mike Florio and Semeni, Costello, and Mehta and Co.

    Speaking of which; notice how none of those rodents had a thing on what was really going on with Mac & Bowles. They had nothing, zilch, squat. How beautiful is that?

    “Mike Maccagnan DOES NOT have a first round grade on Baker Mayfield.”

    Good thing the Jets preemptively scouted Darnold. It appeared as though they had a feigned interest in Darnold (albeit due to their diligence in scouting him, they though he would definitely be gone) to the outside eye.

    I don't understand how Josh Allen was on anybody's shortlist at the top of the draft. He was marginally better than Christian Hackenberg in his two seasons as a starter at Wyoming and he definitely faced worse defenses.

    If he had come out on a high note the way Blake Bortles did I'd have understood the excitement about his measurables. Instead he got reined in by his college coaches and had an overall less efficient and less explosive year than he had in 2016. You really have to project with him to make him a tolerable NFL QB, let alone a franchise savior.

    I guess the arm just wowed some people enough to make up for the fact that his production in college and high school was subpar.

    This isn't exactly an Odell Beckham case either. Allen wasn't seen as a good QB prospect coming out of high school. I guess we learn at least one new thing about the NFL every year at this point. Maybe it's now a league where you can throw a raw QB on the field and coach him up to speed without hitting too many bumps in the road.

    Without a link or citation, your comment is meaningless.

    You had about 50 posts in the thread "Cimini: McCagnan doesnt view Mayfield as top 3 pick" and you need a link?

    What are you confused about? The league is becoming a glorified qb skills competition. Anyone with the size and/or the arm talent is going to be rated very highly. Hell, what was the 1st pick of the 2nd round 16 years ago is now 1st overall.

    We all suspected that, as you can't draft Christian Hackenberg, then 2 years later trade up to #3 overall and draft a QB with accuracy issues. Not to mention many people feel he needs to sit a year or two. It would be career suicide for Maccagnan. Those are all things the Jets could not afford to risk, even if Allen turns out to be a solid QB, which I think is possible.
