Jets High On UNC QB Mitch Trubisky

The Jets are giving Bryce Petty an opportunity to show what he can do to close out the season, but no matter how well he does in this short audition, it’s likely that they will add a quarterback this spring. Looking ahead to the draft, the Jets have their eye on UNC quarterback Mitch TrubiskyManish Mehta of the Daily News hears. Mitch Trubisky (vertical)

They got their eyes set on the North Carolina quarterback,” one rival scout said. “The Jets are all over this kid. All over him. They’ll probably deny it if you ask, but they love that kid. That’s their guy. They’re not going to get him though, because I think that kid is going to get over-drafted.”

Of course, the Jets aren’t the only team with a fondness for Trubisky. Last month, we learned that the Browns are eyeing the Tar Heel QB and they are on course to pick No. 1 overall. The 49ers and Bears also hold picks in the top five and could target a quarterback. In a weak year for QBs, all signs point to Trubisky being the highest-ranked of the bunch.

    Did they trade Hackenberg and I missed it? They just used a 2nd round pick on him.

      As a PSU fan, I don’t have much confidence in Hackenburg’s ability to be an NFL Qb.

    What is wrong with these organizations? They spend early picks on QBs and then the next year draft another one again. Do they not realize they’re WASTING draft picks like this?!?

    As a pats fan I love the Jets organization they’re one of the most poorly run teams in football, they have a good coach, but that’s about it. They draft a QB every year, reluctant to trade any major pieces for whatever reason even though they’re easily the worst in the AFC East
