Plus I have no interest in adding a young QB to the **** circus that is Tebow/Sanchez/etc.
No way in hell are all three of those guys ahead of Smith in any real sense of things. They are all about the same. I'd rank them:


And there is very, very little separating them there.

With the 9th and the 13th pick, I don't see a reason that the Jets should absolutely avoid a QB if they like Smith. The Jets can do a lot with this pick. Next year's draft (overall, save the QB depth) should be better, so perhaps you take the QB this year and go with another position next year. It's quite tempting to have some fun with their picks as an outsider since who knows where they will go?

It's a pick 'em in terms of who is actually better. I like Bridgewater and Smith (and I alternate on who I like better given the day). But I could see the Jets taking Manziel just because it's the big splash.
