4. The NY Jets could draft South Alabama QB Carter Bradley

One later-round quarterback prospect who could intrigue the Jets is Carter Bradley. The South Alabama product is the son of former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley. The elder Bradley's close relationship with Robert Saleh gives the Jets a connection here.

Bradley was a highly productive college quarterback who spent a few years at Toledo before transferring to South Alabama where he set numerous school records.

Bradley isn't going to wow anyone with his athleticism and he projects as a pretty straightforward pocket passer at the NFL level, but he has impressive arm talent and prototypical NFL size.

His athleticism limits his ceiling as a pro, but Bradley has the production and traits that NFL teams look for. The Jets could target him with one of their later Day 3 picks.

3. The NY Jets could draft Tennessee QB Joe Milton

You're not going to find a more exciting Day 3 quarterback prospect than Joe Milton. Milton is a physical freak, very much in the mold of quarterbacks like Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, etc.

At 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Milton has a cannon for an arm with excellent athleticism and a jaw-dropping highlight reel. It's everything else about him as a prospect that's the problem.

Milton's footwork is a mess, his accuracy is all over the place, he has seemingly no velocity control on his passes, and he often devolves into a backyard football style of play. Throw in the fact that he's already 24 years old and it's not hard to see why he's expected to be drafted on Day 3.

Milton isn't anywhere close to being NFL-ready, and there's every chance he's another Tyree Jackson-type who flames out of the league in two years. But if you're looking for a project of a quarterback prospect to develop behind Rodgers, Milton is easily the best in this class.
