NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah Outlines His Ideal Draft Strategy For Jets

Appearing on the Rich Eisen show Monday (full video above), NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah described what he believes the Jets best strategy would be heading into the draft in April:

  1. Keep calling the Texans about a potential Deshaun Watson deal and do everything possible to land the pro bowl QB if Houston makes him available.
  2. Spend the next month evaluating everything about the QB prospects to figure out which one makes the most sense for the Jets both on and off the field. This includes pro days, Zoom interviews, etc…. then compare the top choice to Sam Darnold and determine who they feel gives them a better chance going forward.
  3. Barring a deal for Watson, select BYU QB Zach Wilson, who he says is the best fit for what they are looking to do.
  4. Instead of looking to deal Darnold for picks, try to use him to move up from #34 into the top 10 with a QB needy team like Carolina or Denver. Use that top ten pick on a OL and #23 on an offensive skill player to give the QB selected at #2 overall the best chance for success.
