Having the No. 2 挑, I think it’s safe to say if our pick was a little bit later we wouldn’t be having this discussion right now. We’d be comfortable moving ahead with Sam,” 他说.

Douglas said that picking a quarterback at No. 2 appears to bethe direction we’re headingbut would not say for sure if they were locked in on BYU’s Zach Wilson.

Darnold was drafted by the Jets with the No. 3 overall pick back in 2018. 在 12 games last season, Darnold threw for 2,208 yards with nine touchdowns and 11 拦截, and he had the NFL’s lowest passer rating. The Jets finished with a 2-14 记录.

He leaves the Jets with a 13-25 overall record, 8,097 过院, 45 触地得分, 和 39 拦截.
