When you have a quarterback like Marcus Mariota, who has been so proficient throughout his career, judging him on one bad game is not prudent.
The Jets are not going to reach for anyone with their first pick in the draft. As far as they are concerned, who they end up choosing will be about talent, not about need.
Joe Namath, the greatest quarterback in franchise history, thinks Maccagnan needs to roll the dice and pick Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota if he’s available at No. 6.

Florida State’s Jameis Winston showed Saturday there’s nothing wrong with his throwing shoulder.

Marcus Mariota looked awfully comfortable on center stage Thursday.
“I think I would say, simply, every quarterback out there we’d have an interest in,” Maccagnan said at the NFL scouting combine on Wednesday.
The Jets have the sixth pick. No doubt there will be a stud sitting in a cheap suit, flanked by family and friends and agents. It’s Gang Green’s job to find out which one can actually graduate from Saturday to Sunday.
He may end up being the No. 1 overall pick in this spring’s NFL draft, but that doesn’t mean Marcus Mariota has everyone convinced he’s the best quarterback available.
If the Jets are entertaining any notions of moving up in the draft to get one of the two top-rated quarterbacks available, they better look in the rearview. At least one team is reportedly plotting a power move.
Mariota and Florida State’s Jameis Winston are considered the top two quarterbacks in this year’s draft. With the sixth overall pick, the QB-needy Jets could be just out of reach.
