Jets daily draft nugget: On Thursday, they're expected to use a first-round pick on a quarterback for only the fifth time in the post-Namath era. The others and their starting records: Richard Todd (40-47-1), Ken O'Brien (50-55-1), Chad Pennington (32-29) and Mark Sanchez (33-29). Four others drafted in the first round by other teams also have started for them: Tony Eason (0-2), Vinny Testaverde (35-26), Rick Mirer (2-4) and Michael Vick (1-2).

Really surprised Charlie McAvoy of the Boston Bruins didn't grab a Calder Trophy nomination for rookie of the year. New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal, Vancouver Canucks right wing Brock Boeser and Arizona Coyotes center Clayton Keller are your finalists. McAvoy skated 22:09 per game and had 32 points in 63 games. Sure, his season was limited by injury, but he appeared in one fewer game than Selke nominee Patrice Bergeron and one more game than Boeser. Snubbed, for sure.

Jets daily draft nugget: Everybody knows they need pass-rushing help, but it'll be tough to find one. They have no picks in the second round and the overall depth in this draft class is "terrible," according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. He said LSU OLB Arden Key, once considered a first-round prospect, is worth "a roll of the dice in the third round." The Jets have the eighth pick in the third round (72 overall).
