If Jets Want 2nd Best QB In Draft They Shouldn’t Take Wilson [LISTEN]
The 2021 NFL Draft is this Thursday and if all the rumors and reports are true the New York Jets will be selecting BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the second overall pick. Sporting News Colleg Football insider Bill Bender says he's no quarterback guru but Wilson is not the second-best QB in the draft. Bender says his second-best prospect is still the same guy that's been neck and neck with top prospect Trevor Lawrence since high school, Ohio State signal-caller Justin Fields.
There's absolutely no secret that the Jacksonville Jaguars will be selecting Clemson QB Trevor and the Jets seem dialed in on Wilson, so Fields went from the guy that could be #1 to the third pick at best. Listening to Bender explain what he likes about Justin Fields and why he thinks the question marks about him aren't that seriously makes me wonder if he's right. Should the Jets shock the world and take Fields over Wilson? Listen below and decide for yourself.
After the conversation of QB is over it's interesting to hear what positions are deeper than you realize in this draft. I've been beating the drum that wide receiver is scary deep while Bill Bender leans elsewhere. If Bender is right this will be a good year for teams looking for help at tackle.
One thing's for sure the place to watch the draft with me and Dan Bahl will be Katie O'Byrne's in Schenectady. Your chance to enjoy great food and drinks while possibly winning up to $1,000? Where else can you have that much fun? Nowhere is the answer.
