Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the third pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the New York Jets select:

Josh Rosen; Quarterback from the University of California, Los Angeles.

How often is this quote brought up in discussion when talking about a New York Jets Quarterback?

We’re gonna win the game. I guarantee it.

It has been 48 years since “Gang Green Nation” has experienced that overwhelming level of elation. Since then, the New York Jets have been well… middle of the road when it came to finding quarterbacks. Sure there were ones like Chad Pennington and most famously (or infamously) Mark Sanchez, but not really “the one” like “Broadway Joe”. Well, nearly fifty years later, it seems that Jets fans may finally have their answer in Josh Rosen; a California know it all with the most pro ready traits of any Quarterback in the class to back whatever his arrogance states. Much like Darnold, Rosen can come in at anytime and be very good in the NFL. Unlike Darnold however, Rosen has far more pro ready tools at his disposal to enter the league. His turnover issues are more a subsequent theme with his receivers having the case of butterfingers than his own doing, his throwing motion is something to behold and is far more aware of sensing and detecting pressure than Darnold. Within that same vein though and, unlike any Quarterback in this draft, Rosen’s self importance has gotten himself into far more trouble off field; his main red flag as a result. Luckily for Jets fans, Todd Bowles is a throwback style coach who will not stand for self importance of any kind. That beings said, while Rosen can be very trying, he will know the full extent of a hard liner like Bowles and will develop into a better person as a result of it

About Steven Ridley

A Canadian loving gamer and analytical American Football fan; Steven has turned to the Black 'n Gold since the days of seeing Troy Amuna Polamalu way back in 2008. Since then, he has been getting more engaged with the sport. In addition of studying the aspects of the game, college prospect scouting is one of his favorite pastimes.

    strength in the world means very little if your accuracy is not very good. Knowing this however is why Josh Allen is the number one pick as Dorsey is using 2018 as a redshirt year for Allen to learn the do’s and do not’s of the NFL. Once 2019 is here is where Dorsey and the Browns will hopefully see the fruition of a year’s worth of experience.

    IF – AND IT’S A BIG “IF” – Mason Rudolph has a big day versus Baltimore the Steelers may have found theit franchise QB and it isn’t KP8. Mason’s been a hard luck guy since he was deafted and Ben was “insulted.” Ben is no rocket scientist but his physical gifts, history and hope combined to make Rudolph an afterthought for years.. Staing ready to play plus maturity may have combined to make MASON THE successor to Ben the Steelers truly need. If so, it settles a big question for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
