New York Jets should pick up a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.
Gang Green have the 18th overall pick in the draft, and Kiper believes the AFC East side should choose a QB.
He feels that current Jets' QB Geno Smith needs competition in order to become a more well rounded signal caller, and a new man under center should do the trick.
Even though New York have a good first round pick in the May draft, Kiper insists the Jets should save the QB selection for the second round.
"I'd try to help Geno Smith and get a receiver like Marqise Lee (at 18), but you must look at some insurance if Smith is not the guy."
Kiper Jr. said Thursday on a media conference call, adding: "I would look at the quarterback position in the third, fourth, fifth round, just as insurance, but I would use the early rounds to help out Geno Smith, and let him have some weapons around him to assist in his development."
Another option at QB for the Jets could be the future free-agent Michael Vick, with Gang Green and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers said to be interested.
