Marcus Mariota had a visit and worked out for the Jets earlier this month, Abert Breer reported (April 23).
Mariota’s visit with the Jets was April 2, according to Manish Mehta in the Daily News (April 2).
Aside from the Jets, Mariota also visited San Diego, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, and Tennessee around that time.
The Jets hold the No. 6 pick in the draft, which begins April 30.
General manager Mike Maccagnan and first-year coach Todd Bowles led a Jets contingent to Eugene, Ore., in late-March to watch Marcus Mariota in a private workout, the second time that Maccagnan saw Mariota in person (Mehta, March 27).
Earlier in March, Woody Johnson said Geno Smith was ‘way ahead’ of Mariota.
ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said “I don’t know how you’d pass him up” if Mariota is available at No. 6 (Cimini, March 26)
