Enjoy your cup of coffee this morning with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Here’s a look at the top quarterbacks for next year’s NFL Draft.

It’s Monday and there might not be enough coffee to get through the day, especially if you’re a fan of the New York Jets. Things were pretty boring for Gang Green at the start of free agency and now that most of the frenzy is over, it’s only a matter of weeks before the 2017 NFL Draft. But what about next year’s draft? Here are some of the latest news and updates from top sources on the internet about the Jets.

In an article written by David Wyatt of Gang Green Nation, he did a fantastic job breaking down the top quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft. The hype is real when it comes to quarterback Sam Darnold out of USC since many consider him the next great player to hit the NFL. It’s hard to tell now if he’ll live up to such hype but either way, knowing how the Jets are and their history at quarterback, they’ll probably be looking for yet another quarterback in next year’s draft too.

In an article written by Ethan Greenberg of the New York Jets, he broke down why the free agent signing of left tackle Kelvin Beachum was a good one. On paper, he certainly has the experience and ability to be a decent offensive lineman. It remains to be seen how he does since similar conversations were said last season when the Jets signed Ryan Clady. Hopefully, Beachum stays healthy all season long and takes care of business.

In an article written by Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, he gave the latest on the Jets pursuing free agent linebacker Dont’a Hightower. It’s hard to imagine Hightower leaving the current Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to come play for a rebuilding team but who knows what will transpire. Schwartz has revealed that Hightower indeed visited the Jets over the weekend so it will be interesting to see if the Jets can make a huge free agent acquisition or if he’ll keep shopping around his services.

Finally, in an article written by Alan Schechter of NFL Spin Zone, he broke down the overall needs of the Jets heading into the 2017 NFL Draft. With all eyes on what they’ll do at quarterback, Schechter nailed it right on the head that the biggest need for the Jets to address is actually at cornerback. Do we all not remember how the defensive secondary of the Jets got torched all season long in 2016? The Jets need to use their No. 6 overall pick to add the best available cornerback that is starting material. That’s not only would it be a good direction to head in but one the Jets can build upon for the future.
