2. The NY Jets could draft Tulane QB Michael Pratt

Michael Pratt is one of a few mid-round quarterback prospects the Jets have reportedly shown interest in. A four-year starter at Tulane, Pratt became a starter three games into his true freshman season and never gave up the job.

The Florida native was named the AAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2023 after leading Tulane to a 10-1 record as a starter, completing over 65 percent of his passes and throwing 22 touchdowns to go along with just five interceptions.

Pratt lacks elite physical traits to help him stand out in today's NFL, but he was a productive college player with a base skill set that should allow him to step into a backup role early in his career.

Pratt is a savvy, experienced quarterback prospect who has shown consistent growth throughout his career. I'm not sure I quite see the upside, but he has the potential to have a lengthy career as an NFL backup at the very least.

1. The NY Jets could draft Florida State QB Jordan Travis

If not for a devastating leg injury that robbed him of part of his senior season, Jordan Travis might be seen as an early Day 2 prospect in this year's class. Unfortunately, that injury likely makes him more of a Day 3 pick.

Travis is one of the oldest and most experienced quarterback prospects in this draft, having originally made his debut for Lousiville back in 2018. A transfer and some steady improvement helped Travis develop into one of the most exciting quarterbacks in college football.

The soon-to-be 24-year-old was named the ACC Player of the Year in 2023 and likely would've led his school to the College Football Playoff if not for his injury.

Travis has enough arm talent and mobility to raise his ceiling in the NFL, especially when combined with the fact that scouts have raved about his character and leadership. He's an ideal Day 3 developmental quarterback prospect — and someone the Jets seem to be eyeing.
