When the New York Jets officially selected quarterback Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, fans undoubtedly screamed cheers of joy. Here are some of the best fan reactions from Twitter.

Are your hands still shaking? Does your face hurt from smiling so much? Did you pinch yourself yet? No, this isn’t a dream, it’s reality. The New York Jets just drafted their next franchise quarterback with a player most did not expect to still be available with the No. 3 overall pick.

It was a no-brainer for general manager Mike Maccagnan and the Jets to make Darnold their final decision to be the next face of their franchise. He has everything you want and then some in a quarterback and he’s entering a great situation with the Jets.

Not only doesn’t Darnold have to be rushed to start Week 1 of the regular season but he will undoubtedly learn a lot under the veteran leadership above him on the depth chart. Make no mistake about it, Josh McCown is the perfect mentor for Darnold to get him ready to begin a new era of Jets football when his number is called.

Below are some of the best reactions from Jets fans on Twitter. Take a look at the initial reactions once the Jets pick was in:

You know what the best part of Sam Darnold is? He’s not Josh Allen. #Jets

#Jets got QB1. Giants drafted a RB at No. 2.Bills traded up for Allen. Dolphins still stuck with Tannehill. Brady and Gronk turned on Belichick.

This is our best life.

The #Jets traded up to 3 and were mocked. They have arguably the best QB fall into their lap and take him. Well done Maccagnan #NFLDraft

The #Jets ended up with Sam Darnold. The @nyjets! I'm still in shock and filled with joy. Special shout out to the #Browns and #Giants too for making this happen. Love it! #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/pPBxwMlTAf

Forgot to mention this earlier but love Darnold landing with #Jets. Gets perfect mentor to groom him in Josh McCown #NFLDraft

— Jack McCurry (@JMcCurryCLE) April 27, 2018

At the end of the day, although I was big on Josh Rosen, the #Jets did what they needed to do to secure a player that many considered to be the consensus No. 1 pick and possibly the best QB in the draft. Fans can only hope Sam Darnold lives up to the hype. I’m excited to see.

I think the night turned out perfectly for the #Jets in every aspect. We got the #1 pick of the draft. Allen went to buffalo, jets defense will own him. No Rosen to Miami. #goodnight

Still hyped about the #SAMDARNOLD pick by the #Jets. Getting the best QB in the draft at 3 is a steal. #NFLDraft

As you can see, Jets fans are pretty excited that Darnold is their future franchise quarterback. Hopefully, he has a successful career that can bring positive results to a Jets team that is in dire need of a winning quarterback from under center.
