Maybe they will finally luck into something in the 2017 NFL Draft. All the rumors seem to be centered around the Cleveland Browns going with defensive end Myles Garrett first overall. Theres also talk San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan may not want the team to go quarterback with their second overall pick. Should those two stick with these philosophies, the Jets may very well see Clemson signal caller Deshaun Watson on the board when it’s their turn to pick.
No hesitation is needed. If this scenario falls New York would be wise to finally grab a guy the fans could get behind. Watson is coming off a National Championship and a 41 touchdown passing season. He has also topped the 4,000-yard mark in each of the past two seasons for Clemson. There may be some question about if he isn’t worthy of a first-round pick, but there’s really no question he is a starter in the NFL〞which is more than what can be said about the current group the Jets have.
It has become painfully obvious that the Jets have no plan at quarterback. Geno Smith was a second-round pick in 2013, and he’s been bad. He was replaced by veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick who was good for one year and awful the next. There’s also Bryce Petty, who was a fourth-round selection in 2015 and has had limited experience. The little he has played though has been very discouraging. More discouraging is the fact that the team wouldn’t even try 2016 second round pick Christian Hackenberg last season even as everyone else struggled.
That appeared to be a run-pass option, with Kelly having to make the call whether to take the inside handoff or fire a quick toss Engram’s way. Engram helped make the decision by firing off the line, sitting down in an open area and getting turned back toward the QB. Kelly had the ball in his hands for fewer than two seconds, so there could be no wasted motion on Engram’s end.
Better yet, Engram spun upfield after the catch and left the Memphis safety flailing en route to a TD.
