The Jets were 5-11 in Todd Bowles second season as head coach after a surprising 10-6 in his first season. The Jets looked pathetic. I don’t think they were even as good as their sad record. Needs? It has to be tempting to take a quarterback here with this pick- the Jets haven’t had a quarterback who was a Top 10 quarterback in the league [not talking about putting up stats but a quarterback anyone would consider one of the ten best in the league} since… well maybe Joe Willie Namath? Ken O’Brien and Boomer were better than average but not great, the Jets have also had their share of awful quarterbacks since Joe Willie limped to the sidelines. The J-E-T-S also need help one of offensive line, defensive backfield and tight end.  The Jets kept 4 quarterbacks last year, if you call them quarterbacks- Geno Smith is thankfully gone at least from the Jets. He’s the Giants problem now. They have 38 year old Josh McCown and youngsters Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg McCown is at the end of a mediocre career, and they’d be just as well off with Tom Petty and Werner Heisenberg at QB as Petty or Hackenberg.. Let’s face it none of these three guys will take the Jets to a winning season let alone the playoffs. They need a quarterback bad but do  you gamble on one of these guys? The Jets should be truly awful in 2017 so maybe they can nab a quarterback from next years draft where it is being said there should be a better qb class.

With the 6th pick in the NFL draft I have the Jets taking Malik Hooker Free Safety Ohio State 6’1″ 205  4.50 40 time. Hooker had seven interceptions for the Buckeyes last year, the Jets had eight as a team. Bowles is a defensive coach and he will be wanting some help in the defensive backfield-  -so I have them taking Hooker a playmaker on defense who can make an immediate impact instead of a quarterback who may take a few years to develop.
