Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, here is a live tracker for everything and anything involving the New York Jets as they prepare to make their biggest decision in quite some time with the No. 3 overall pick.

The 2018 NFL Draft is finally here! Today promises to be a huge day not just for many teams in the league but especially for the New York Jets. After months of analysis, mock drafts, and speculation, the Jets will finally make their official decision with the No. 3 overall pick.

Of course, as many of you know, that pick will undoubtedly be for a future franchise quarterback. One that will not only be the next face of the franchise but someone hopefully worth building around for the next decade or so.

No matter who the Jets pick tonight when they’re on the clock, rest assured you’ll be kept in the loop in this Day 1 live tracker below covering Round 1 of this year’s draft. This will cover anything and everything on the Jets as they make one of the biggest decisions in franchise history. Keep in mind that this live tracker will be updated by the minute with news, rumors, and anything involving the Jets heading into tonight.

Sam Darnold spoke to incumbent QB Josh McCown during his recent visit to the Jets — the start of an important relationship. McCown will be a great mentor for Darnold. https://t.co/R7xIZtWSZK

Sam Darnold breaks a streak of 9 straight Jets' 1st-round picks that had been defensive players, the longest such streak since the 1970 merger, per Elias. #Jets

Bowles on Darnold: "I like his competitiveness." #nyj

The Jets shouldn't rush Sam Darnold into the lineup. He had only 24 college starts, he's only 20 years old and he needs reps. When he's ready, play him. https://t.co/skz3U9VPsa

If I had to put together #Jets QB rankings based on latest intel, it would be: Darnold, Rosen, Mayfield, Allen. Not saying that’s what it is; just educated hunch.

The numbers don't lie. The best quarterback on the board is Baker Mayfield, and it's not very close.

If Mayfield goes first, I think Darnold could go two to somebody (trade a possibility). Wouldn’t be shocked if Jets explore possibility of moving up. If not, pretty sure they’d take Rosen. #Jets
