  • No matter who's the QB your going to have to protect him. They can get a good receiver at the top of the 2nd round. 2 1st round pick get the Alabama or Clemson RB

  • The jets better draft Devonta Smith like he's the best player in the draft seriously if they f*** this up there bugging

  • I would absolutely LOVE to see devonta go @ #3 in the draft & play with Tua again!

  • Justin Fields will be a work in progress no matter where he goes, he may fall out of the top 10 altogether SF at 12 maybe?? I could see it

  • I hardly ever agree with Max but boy he is on point with this one the Jets need way too much to start out with a wide receiver you got to be kidding me

  • all a fan wants is hope

  • When was were Born Max??

  • He not better than Jamarr Chase

  • Max has too many holes in his arguments. Aside from the Jets having the #2 overall pick, they also have the #23 overall pick. The Jets already have a solid left tackle in Mekhi Becton. They can take DeVonta Smith at #2 and take a solid right tackle at #23 - Thereby insuring a solid offensive line AND getting their explosive wide out putting Sam Darnold in a position to succeed and win.

    • I think they could be able to take Smith at #2, Leatherwood at #23 and Mac Jones in the 2nd round and bring a bunch of young Alabama chemistry to the team. They could even trade Darnold and their 2nd to move up and grab Mac earlier or they can wait to see if he falls that far and then trade Darnold afterwards. Lots of possibilities!

  • No they should NOT unless they also hire Sark as OC. NFL defenses are different, the best of the best, with top coaching. GET YOUR OL straight, period. If you cannot protect your QB, you have no argument. Offensive linemen, Defensive linemen are the studs you need to focus on, EVERY team needs to focus on. Skill guys are great, when you have the time to get him the ball from a QB that can get him the ball, based upon the time your OL gives them. The NFL really does SUCK at this, STOP drafting QB's, RB's, and WR's overall when you need LINEMEN. The battle is won in the trenches, period.

  • Uh, what is Paul doing below the camera???

  • I think they should take Penei Sewell, building a team starts on the line. Darnold is talented but has always had so much pressure because of what’s around him. It starts on the line, and Sewell to me is the right pick

  • Miami will be Happy either with deVonte or Sewell

  • Smitty going to Miami

  • Roll Tide!

  • Jets takes Smith? No. Smith over Chase? Yes.

  • Finebaum is JO’ing under the desk lol

  • You can get an offensive tackle anywhere Smith should get a shoe deal somebody needs to draft a Black or Mexican field goal kicker is nothing but white field goal kickers in the NFL

  • The answer: no

  • 2:32 I like that😍💋 💝💖❤️

  • Awesome 😍💋 💝💖♥️❤️

  • The jets shouldnt do that to that man. Thats a career killer.

  • Yes, 100% yes yes yes

    • ew no y’all ruin careers

  • Aye, as long as Fields don't go to the bumass Jets, I'm good. XD

  • Fantastic 😍💋 💝💖♥️❤️

  • 0:45 Fields goin top 5, gtfoh.

    • @Aarav Gala I wish the best for him but if he's another lamar(run no matter) imma be pissed

    • @The Legendary Nalon I agree but I still feel like he should be the second qb off the board

    • He might not because only jets and jaguars need a qb maybe Falcons but like unless he goes to atl or NY he isnt

  • 2:32 I like that😍💋 💝💖❤️

  • Good. I wait for love from you 💝💖

  • Really nice 👌 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  • Ohio State QB’s haven’t translated to success in the NFL😂

    • @Zach Idc, I don't believe in that type of stuff. I'll believe it when I see it.

    • there’s literally one school with more than 1 starter rn and that oklahoma. yet nobody talks about oklahoma qbs being the premium do they

    • how many cal or texas tech qbs were good before mahomes and rogers 🥱

    • Just because that's happened to QBs in the past, doesn't mean it'll happen to Fields.

  • No, they shouldn't. Just get Fields.

    • @Bear 7453 do you want to keep Darnold and stay trash

    • @Cryptum404 ???

    • Nah

    • @Cryptum404 what?

    • @Cryptum404 lol what?

  • Yes - Buckeye fan. 😂😂😂

    • Where are the black and Mexican field goal kickers just not one Black or Mexican or Asian field goal kicker any NCAA nor the NFL it's sickens me too much stomach Mexicans know how to kick blacks know how to kick

  • These guys keep screaming for fields over Lawrence just like they said HASKINS over Jones. It’s sad because it’s just about being woke and not about being factual or accurate

    • Bro what 😂

    • Bruh have you been following cfb? Vast majority of people have been screaming for Lawrence over Fields. Idk what news you've been watching.

    • i dont even remember hearing about jones up until he got drafted
