Enjoy your morning cup of coffee with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Make no mistake about it, expect to see them select yet another quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Finally, the weather in New York is warm enough to the point of not needing to wear a hoodie or light jacket. The 2017 NFL Draft is just a few weeks away as it’s a great time of year for football fans to see what final decisions their favorite team makes to improve for the upcoming season. The New York Jets should be able to land some impact players within the first few years that can step right in and contribute in 2017. Below you’ll find some of the latest news and articles on the Jets from top sources on the internet. These go perfectly with a blueberry scone and a hot cup of coffee.

In an article written by ESPN, they forecasted every single team in the NFL for the likelihood they would draft a quarterback in this year’s draft. Rich Cimini believes the Jets will indeed draft another quarterback at some point. In the grand scheme of things, it’s important the Jets continue to draft quarterbacks until they finally find their franchise player. It’ll take time and patience but at the end of the day, it’s good to keep bringing in options until one turns out to be the real deal.

In an article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, he breaks down why it’s important for general manager Mike Maccagnan to have another successful draft, unlike his predecessors. Those before him failed because they didn’t do their proper research and pretty much brought in more busts than talented players. Maccagnan has an impressive resume but again, contending teams aren’t built overnight as it’s a combination of bringing in quality free agents to go well with newly drafted players.

In an article written by Connor Hughes for NJ.com, he wrote about how the Buffalo Bills are also interested in quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. This time of year and especially with the draft right around the corner, a lot of teams will work out potential draft picks to see what they bring to the table. Lots of times, it’s all smoke and mirrors since teams just want to steer the opposition away from who they really want to draft. Take everything with a grain of salt when rumors surface about teams interested in draft prospects since once they’re on the clock, anything can happen.

Finally, in an article written by John B. of Gang Green Nation, he broke down how injuries were a huge factor last year in the overall losing season of the Jets. Injuries are a part of football but the Jets got hit hard in 2016 and when you don’t have quality backups as depth, everything tends to implode. If you don’t have the majority of your starters playing consistently all season long, chances are you won’t win many football games.
