Mike... Marino was poised to go right alongside Kelly & Elway. Then he had a minor knee injury in his senior season that made him fall. But when forced to pick 24th, the Jets should have been fortunate to pick Marino. When they picked Ken O'Brien from Cal-Davis, no fan had ever heard of him. Granted in 1983, the NFL draft was not as big as it is now by a long shot. But EVERY Jets fan was psyched because we thought we were getting Marino. Especially when the commissioner started his sentence by saying "With the 24th pick in the NFL Draft, the NY Jets select quarterback......" Unfortunately the ending was Ken O'Brien from the University of California-Davis.
