The first rule of the Jets' upcoming draft is you do not talk about the Jets' upcoming draft. The second rule of the Jets’ upcoming draft is you do not talk about the Jets’ upcoming draft.

It's an unsurprising philosophy from a current regime that plays its cards as close to the vest as possible. So though little was revealed at the Jets' pre-draft press conference Wednesday, the Jets were particularly tight-lipped when it came to evaluating a certain position in this draft class: quarterbacks.
"I'm not going to get into specifics on the position," senior personnel executive Terry Bradway said. "I don't think that's appropriate at this time."

Most expect the Jets to address one of their two biggest needs, cornerback or pass-catcher, in the first round of the NFL draft next week. With Geno Smith improving late last season and Michael Vick now on the roster, quarterback is unresolved for the Jets but not a pressing need. But despite that, could the Jets end up drafting a quarterback in the early rounds? Don't forget, John Idzik once labeled the Jets a "quarterback-obsessed team."

"We remain open minded," Idzik said Wednesday of drafting a new quarterback.

Certainly, an early-round QB pick would throw a wrench into the impending competition between Smith and Vick. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said on Tuesday that he doesn't want anything to impede Smith's development, but it's hard to imagine a new rookie quarterback aiding Smith.
