Draft SZN hosts Dalbin Osorio and Jeff Lloyd each give their top five college quarterbacks based on fit with the New York Jets. When you are tracking these players during the 2018 season remember to play online jackpot games at Red Flush Casino.
#1 – Josh Rosen
Pros: Easy throwing motion with a very quick release, excellent footwork, very accurate with throws
Cons: Small upper body, some injury concern, shoulder, concussions. Some Eli Manning like #YOLO interceptions. Also his type of attitude is going to rub some folks the wrong way.
#2 Lamar Jackson
Pros: Quick feet, very strong arm with more than adequate velocity, best athlete at the QB position since Michael Vick
Cons: Not consistently accurate, mechanics need to be improved, will bail on plays too early at times
#3 Baker Mayfield
Pros: Able to extend plays with his legs while keeping his eyes downfield, very good touch on underneath routes, solid deep ball.
Cons: Not very accurate on intermediate routes, has a tendency to be too trigger happy and mess up his foundation on throws, will take unnecessary chances at times
#4 Sam Darnold
Pros: great touch to all three levels, shows excellent situational awareness at times, and arm strength allows him to fit throws in tight spots.
Cons: Careless with the ball at times (similar to Eli Manning), will miss deep throws at times, release is too long for my liking.
#5 Luke Falk
Pros: Able to keep his eyes downfield at all times, great at reading the field, does not appear rattled by pressure.
Cons: Not the biggest arm and lacks velocity to make all throws, not mobile at all, only played in Air Raid.
#1 Josh Rosen
Pros: Best arm talent in the class, excellent deep ball thrower, should only excel w/ NFL talent around him.
Cons: Can be careless with football when facing pressure, needs to be smarter about taking sacks, can try to do too much
#2 Baker Mayfield
Pros: Largest jump from any guy in this class. Born leader who’s been doubted every step of the way. Makes those around him better.
Cons: Size, big 12 defenses.
#3 Lamar Jackson
Pros: Incredible game changing athlete at the position. Passing has developed steadily over a 3 year basis. Zero to no talent around him.
Cons: Thin legs, is the running ability a help or hinderance on Sundays. (Extra hits, injury potential) will the passing skills continue to develop. Needs an OC who will not try to harness him
#4 Sam Darnold
Pros: intelligence. Size is a plus. Doesn’t force things.
Cons: Odd throwing motion that needs his mechanics to be perfect. Sloppy feet which brings his arm slot even lower than normal which leads to ball sailing. Regressed in year two as a starter with new weapons and defenses seeing him a second time.
#5 Jarrett Stidham
Pros: Strong quick release. Highly accurate deep passer. Throws well on the run, doesn’t turn the ball over much.
Cons: Takes too many sacks, short hops some throws. Slow processor at times
