I'm torn with this.
I'd like to see them get extra picks etc, but also would like them to take that jumbo tackle Penei Sewell or WR Devonta Smith at #2
I'd also they not keep Darnold, but if they aren't sold on Fields or Wilson, why burn a #2 pick on a guy they don't think is "the answer"?
If they trade down and are lucky and it's the Falcons, they could have pick 5, but even in this scenario, I think both of those guys would probably go 3 and 4.
Well, I mean, historically speaking, some team is gonna want to give up a ton to move up to 2 to draft Fields
Look at the Wentz trade from 2016: Eagles sent the 8th pick, a third and a fourth in that draft, a future first, and a future 2nd
The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th didn't turn into much (there were really good players available, it's just a super crap shoot at that point), but the two firsts turned into Jack Conklin and Deshaun Watson. If we want to sh*t on the Eagles even further, you can point out that they traded up from 13 to 8, and the Dolphins took Laremy Tunsil with that 13th pick, so they could've drafted Tunsil and Watson, but that's kind of besides the point
I think the Jets have a lot of interesting ways they can go this offseason. Personally, I say either stay put and take Fields or trade back to a team that offers them a lot. That usually works out good for the team doing the trading back, I think.
Is Fields a fit for that Shannahan style offense the Jets will likely run?
I have no idea; I'm not that into scouting college football guys.
He seems talented and has a pretty big arm, but Ohio State doesn't produce a bunch of pro QB's, does it? Or not many good ones.
