Everyone has known the New York Jets are taking a quarterback from the second they moved up from No. 6 to No. 3 in Thursday's first round.

Now they've made that abundantly clear to all potential prospects.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Jets have canceled all top-30 meetings with non-quarterback prospects.

Doing this would indicate the Jets have no interest in trading back into the first round after they use the No. 3 pick. They do not have another pick until No. 72 overall, which makes any other potential deal unlikely as is.

The Jets' pick will be dependent on where the Browns and New York Giants go with the first two picks. Cleveland is largely expected to choose between Sam Darnold and Josh Allen at No. 1. The Giants are in the market for a long-term replacement for Eli Manning, but smart money has been on them taking Penn State running back Saquon Barkley for some time.

That would leave Darnold/Allen, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen on the board, with Lamar Jackson hanging around as a potential shocker. Mayfield and Rosen have been linked to New York more so than either leftover from the Darnold/Allen duo.

Regardless, this is something we all knew already. The Jets are taking a quarterback. We're only two days away from finding out who, so there's little use in sleuthing through and attempting to make a wild guess.
