Colin Cowherd: “The New York Jets are BAD and do not have a ‘best player’, it’s Darnold. They do not have a best unit, according to Pro Football Focus. Last year the Ravens had 12 Pro Bowlers, this year the Jets will have NONE. They also have a head coach who is lost, and a defense coordinator who doesn’t like the head coach, and it’s come unglued… This is the worst or second worst team in the NFL. Do you draft Trevor Lawrence or a Justin Fields, or do you stick with Darnold? If you decide to stick with Darnold, you’re going to be able to trade the Lawrence pick and get three first round picks, three second round picks, and maybe a player. The Jets already have two first round picks in this Draft and two first round picks in next Draft because of Jamal Adams. Would I stay with Darnold? YES, If I could get Urban Meyer, Lincoln Riley, or Brian Daboll, the offensive coordinator for Buffalo – ELITE candidates. I still think Darnold is a ‘B+’ talent and you can win games with that coach, and those Draft picks, and that salary space… With Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins I see glimpses of ‘competency’, with Sam Darnold I see glimpses of ‘GREAT’, ‘DYNAMIC’, ‘AMAZING’, and ‘OMG, HOW IS HE DOING IT??’ He's got a bad O-Line, bad receivers, bad running backs, and bad tight ends. There are glimpses that are really highly impressive. Be careful about bailing on young quarterbacks.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the New York Jets need to keep Sam Darnold, and trade their potential number one overall Draft pick amid a highly cherished slot that will almost certainly warrant Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
Check out the segment above as Colin details why he believes the Jets should build around Darnold, who he still thinks could be a good NFL quarterback, and trade the Lawrence pick for a substantial amount of draft capital that is already looking hefty after New York received two first round picks from the Seahawks in exchange for Jamal Adams.
