With the Jets, Sam Darnold Can Create His Own Legacy

NFL Draft 2018 Teams with most riding on draft

After taking USC quarterback Sam Darnold at No. 3 overall on Thursday night and Fort Hays State defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd in the third round Friday night, general manager Mike Maccagnan went to work on the draft's final day to fill some other sizable roster holes.

The New York Jets made a big move earlier this offseason when they traded their first-round pick, two second-round picks and 2019's first-round pick to jump up three spots in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Now don't get me wrong, the Jets will expect Darnold to perform.

Raymond Schwartz, a 14-year-old patient at the Goryeb Children's Hospital, was all set the Jets' fourth-round pick Saturday before technical difficulties spoiled the occasion. The Browns are still trying to get fair value from the 2016 draft deal that packaged Carson Wentz to the Eagles at No. 2; Cleveland traded one of the picks it received to the Texans a year later, and that pick turned into Deshaun Watson. "We're not going to throw him in there (unprepared), but at the same time, we're not going to hold him back either".

"Whatever happens happens", Darnold said.

Last month, the Jets re-signed veteran Josh McCown to a one-year, $10 million contract. Still, it's a tribute to McCown, who was drafted in 2002, that he's still in the league at age 38.

The No. 3 overall pick will be a franchise-defining draft choice for potentially the next decade.

"I feel like I'm a great blocker", Herndon said.

The newly acquired Bridgewater comes with health concerns, and while Hackenberg has never seemed to garner much interest from Gang Green, it's Petty and his 57.7 quarterback rating over seven career starts that is commanding attention.

Darnold was formally introduced at the team's facility Friday after spending Thursday night in Dallas at the draft site. The most recent injury was a fractured larynx that required surgery late last season.
