09:28 PM ET 03.24 | It was widely reported March 14 that Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway attended the West Virginia pro day, headlined by QB Geno Smith. Turns out that Bradway was accompanied by offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. The Jets' contingent had some private time with Smith, and they came away very impressed. The Jets have warmed to Smith since last month's scouting combine, where he didn't blow people away with his interviews. Some feel that may have been caused by fatigue (the combine can be a grind), but he certainly redeemed himself in the eyes of the Jets. Do they like him enough to pick him ninth overall (if he lasts that long)? I honestly don't know. My sense is the Jets will ride out 2013 with their current cast of quarterbacks (plus maybe another veteran) and look for their quarterback of the future next year. But it would make for some interesting draft-room conversation if Smith slips to the Jets.

Good. The more QB's that get taken early in the first round - the better players that will slide down to the Cowboys for Jerry to ignore.

Jets will have new people in charge next year... better to wait and let them pick their own QB.

When the Jets sign their 7th Quarterback they get one free. Rex really wants the free one 'cause then he gets a gold sticker.

"See, Tim, we already have like 5 qbs on the roster. Now we'd like to keep you. So you can be 6th on the depth chart at QB or you can be our number 1 back, or you can be a slot receiver. It's really up to you, we're not trying to force anything on you...."
