    2015 QB Draft class

    Post by NYJETSDAN16 on Sun 28 Sep 2014 - 10:13

    I hate to bring this topic up, but let's be honest.  If Geno continues to turn the ball over, we will be picking within the top five of next May's 2015 draft.
    With that said, we will have a new coach because i doubt Woody will want to give Rex another shot to redeem himself missing out on the playoffs for his fourth straight year.  A new coach undoubtedly would want to develop his own general.

    I hope Geno truns it around in the coming weeks.  I hope by week 9 this thread closes instantly. Yet the fact of the matter is that Geno is making the same mental mistakes over and over again.  He has been surrounded by talent on the offensive side of the ball and he is still making rookie mistakes.

    Here are some QB's that merit mention if the Jets do falter this season with Smith at the helm:

    Jameis Winston**, QB, Florida State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2014): Top-10 Pick.

    9/6/14: Winston had a so-so performance in the season opener against Oklahoma State. He completed 25-of-40 passes for 370 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The redshirt sophomore made some uncharacteristicly bad decisions with the football, but also flashed his skill set as a pocket passer who can make all the throws for the NFL. He also had a highlight reel 28-yard touchdown run. Winston could get better as he develops more chemistry with some new receivers.

    8/27/14: Winston took college football by storm in 2013 as the Heisman Trophy winner while leading Florida State to a National Championship. The redshirt freshman demonstrated a quality arm with well-developed passing ability. Winston completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. On the ground, he ran for 219 yards with four touchdowns.

    Winston is a rare athlete who is a natural passer. His field vision and decision-making were phenomenal in 2013. It was extremely impressive for a first-year starter and is scary to think how good his field vision could be in the future as he gains more experience. He also showed incredible poise for a young player. Winston is a rare talent.

    Personal: Winston has had some off-the-field problems, including an investigation into a sexual assault and a theft at a Publix grocery store. He also has pitched for Florida State's baseball team. His focus and maturity will be questioned by NFL teams.

    Marcus Mariota*, QB, Oregon
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 219.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2015): Top-10 Pick.

    9/6/14: Mariota and Oregon dominated South Dakota. He completed 14-of-20 passes for 267 yards with three touchdowns. The redshirt junior ran for 43 yards on six carries with a score.

    8/27/14: There is no denying that Mariota has a great physical skill set and is a tremendous athlete with rare mobility. He is a dangerous running threat. Mariota needs work to develop as a pocket passer for the NFL, but he has the arm, size and height to live in the pocket. Mariota needs to continue to refine his footwork, throwing mechanics, ball placement and field vision. However, the redshirt junior is a natural at throwing on the run and has big-play ability.

    In 2013, Mariota completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,665 yards with 31 touchdowns and four interceptions. On the ground, the redshirt sophomore ran for 715 yards with nine touchdowns. While Mariota did a great job of avoiding throwing picks, he had some issues with fumbles.

    Mariota did a good job of running Oregon's high-scoring attack in 2012. The redshirt freshman completed 68 percent of his passes for 2,677 yards with 32 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 898 yards (752 net) with five touchdowns.

    Mariota needs to use 2014 to show the NFL that he has the skills to thrive as a pocket passer.

    Personal: From Hawaii. Majoring in human physiology. Son of Toa Mariota and Alana Deppe-Mariota.

    Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 214.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.76.
    Projected Round (2015): 1-3.

    9/6/14: Mannion was 26-of-45 for 328 yards with a touchdown against Portland State. In speaking with sources from numerous NFL teams, they all like Mannion and are eager to see him as a senior.

    8/27/14: Over three seasons as a starter, Mannion has improved his passing skills. He lit up Pac-12 defenses in 2013 as he completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,662 yards with 37 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Mannion needs to improve his anticipation. He started the season strong before having some ugly games in November against USC, Arizona State and Washington. He is prone to hold on to the ball too long as he took 25 sacks as a junior and 24 sacks as a freshman (12 as a sophomore).

    In 2012, Mannion completed 65 percent of his passes for 2,446 yards with 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He became the Beavers' starting quarterback in 2011. The redshirt freshman completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,328 yards with 16 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.

    There are three things that Mannion must improve in order to have a shot at being a first-round pick. They are: accuracy, anticipation and footwork. Mannion's rough stretch last November can be attributed to those weaknesses. His interceptions came on inaccurate passes, and his feet weren't always in rhythm. He also needs to play better against his elite opponents and not just rack up numbers against weak teams.

    Personal: Son of John and Inga. Sean is a coach's kid as his father is a high school football coach.

    Brett Hundley*, QB, UCLA
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 227.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round (2015): 1-3.

    9/6/14: My NFL sources all agree that UCLA junior quarterback Brett Hundley is physically talented with upside, but they feel he is inconsistent and overrated. Hundley did nothing to dispel that against Virginia. He completed 20-of-33 passes for 242 yards and ran for 39 yards on 15 carries with a score. Hundley did more timely damage with his legs than his arms and needs to show more pocket-passing ability.

    8/27/14: As a redshirt freshman in 2012, Hundley led the Bruins' revival and helped get his team to the Pac-12 Championship Game. He completed 66 percent of his passes in 2012 for 3,740 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, plus ran for 702 yards (355 net) with nine touchdowns. Hundley scored on a 72-yard touchdown run against Rice on his first play that year. He threw for 372 yards against a good Oregon State team and finished the year with 329 yards and three touchdowns versus Baylor.

    Hundley completed 67 percent of his passes in 2013 for 3,071 yards with 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions. On the ground, he ran for 970 yards (748 net) and 11 scores. Hundley led a furious comeback for a huge road win at Nebraska. In a win over Utah, he showed off his athletic ability when he caught a touchdown, ran for a touchdown and threw for a touchdown. Hundley struggled versus Stanford, but he played better against Oregon than his numbers indicated.

    The UCLA coaching staff has a lot of NFL experience and is grooming Hundley well for the next level. He fits in the mold of athletic quarterbacks with good arms. Hundley has room for improvement, but he has the potential to rise high.

    Personal: Undeclared major. Son of Brett, Sr. and April Hundley.

    Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2015): 4-6.

    9/6/14: WalterFootball.com knows that multiple NFL teams view Petty as a third-day prospect despite the hype from some draft pundits. The view of league contacts was justified by Petty's performance in the 2014 season opener. His accuracy was bad as he missed a lot of wide open receivers that any NFL quarterback has to connect with. Petty finished 13-of-23 for 161 yards with two touchdowns in the air and ran for a touchdown. He needs to show improvement in his pocket passing and accuracy.

    8/27/14: 2013 was an impressive debut season for Petty as Baylor's starting quarterback. The dual-threat quarterback could definitely improve as a pocket passer now that he has gained a year of experience. Petty completed 62 percent of his passes last year for 4,200 yards with 32 touchdowns and three interceptions. He ran for 339 yards and 14 touchdowns as well. Petty backed up Robert Griffin III and Nick Florence for three seasons.

    Personal: Son of Todd and Dena Petty. Graduated in May of 2013 with a degree in health science studies.

    Here are some other QB's that will be eligible for the 2015 draft:

    Just personal preference, Mariota would be my pick in a heart beat:
