Jets News: Should Jets pass on Teddy Bridgewater, draft Manziel?

In tonight's edition of Jets news, one ESPN analyst believes that the New York Jets should pass on former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater if he falls to them at #18 in May's NFL Draft.

However, in his recent mailbag, Jets writer Rich Cimini believes that if Johnny Manziel happens to fall to them, they might want to take a harder look -- Personally, I wouldn't pick (Teddy Bridgewater) at 18, and I don't think the Jets would either. I think there is a small chance that Johnny Manziel slips to 18. If that happens, I'd have to think long and hard about it. I think he has a chance to be special. It would present an interesting dilemma for the Jets."

"We all know owner Woody Johnson loves glamor at the quarterback position, but if you pick Manziel, you're basically giving up on Smith -- and I don't think they're ready to do that," writes Cimini.

With Michael Vick also on the roster, drafting a quarterback so high may create one of the strangest quarterback logjams in recent history. However, if the Jets feel as if Bridgewater or Manziel could lead their franchise into the future, don't be surprised if they pull the trigger if one of them falls to them in the middle of the first round.
