3 overall by New York Jets in 2018 NFL Draft

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan speaks

With No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold now a New York Jet, the team is expected to thin out its crowded quarterback room, perhaps via a trade or two during the remainder of the draft.

When all of the pre-draft dust settled, Mike Maccagnan's masterstroke trade with the Indianapolis Colts on St. Patrick's day allowed him to select the consensus top quarterback in the National Football League draft in Sam Darnold.

NY now holds one pick each in the fourth (No. 107), fifth (No. 157), sixth (No. 179) and seventh (No. 235) rounds.

Pakistan condemns twin terrorist attacks in Kabul
The Shashdarak district houses the defence ministry, intelligence service, and a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation compound. It was the deadliest day for the country's media since a US-led campaign ousted the hardline Islamic Taliban regime in 2001.

Darnold has been lauded for his leadership, poise and quick release, along with his ability to extend plays and get himself and the offense out of trouble.

"If Jets coaches can rein him in a little and cut down on the turnovers, he'll be a Pro Bowler within a few years".

Gil Brandt, the longtime Dallas Cowboys player-personnel director and current senior analyst at NFL.com, ranked Shepherd 50th among his top-150 draft prospects. Obviously, all the quarterbacks compete, but the biggest thing you really don't see is he has an inner desire and drive.

Earlier on Sunday, Israeli forces arrested a Palestinian man for attempting to sabotage security measures along the border fence. Israel says some of those protesting have tried to damage the border fence or plant explosives along it.

Shepherd is 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds.

And in all, four of their five picks in the first two rounds were offensive or defensive linemen. In six preseason appearances, he has completed 59 of 121 attempts (48.8 percent) for 531 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions. Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are also still on the roster. "We're not going to throw him in there, but at the same time, we won't hold him back, either". He is the first Fort Hays player to be drafted by the Jets, the sixth to be taken by any team, and the first Tiger to hear his name called in the last 31 drafts. "It wouldn't have made any sense to come back".

Armenian protest leader rallies support for PM bid
