The kid has a sense of humor B.J. Goodson Jersey , too.

Sam Darnold kept a straight face for a split-second as he answered a question about what he could've done differently on his first pass in the New York Jets' season opener in Detroit.

You know, the one that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown before many fans were even settled into their seats Monday night.

"Yeah, I mean, not throw it," the rookie quarterback deadpanned Wednesday before breaking into a full grin. "That's the easy answer."

Darnold went on to explain how he could have kept rolling to his right and either thrown the ball away or eventually found an open receiver once he noticed Lions safety Quandre Diggs sitting back in the secondary, ready to pick him off.

It was an early learning moment in the Jets' 48-17 rout , and a mistake from which he was able to bounce back.

"I thought, obviously, I could clean things up here and there," Darnold said. "After I put the first play behind me, I thought I played really well."

Darnold finished 16 of 21 for 198 yards and touchdowns to Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa, checking off a list of personal firsts 鈥?first game, first start, first TD, first INT, first victory 鈥?in the NFL.

"To get my first win under my belt, that's a really good feeling, more than anything," he said. "Just to be able to win a game in the NFL and know I can do it Frank Clark Jersey , even though I did know that I could do it. It's just a nice feeling to actually go out there and execute with my teammates, especially the way that we did.

"But, yeah, moving forward, I'm confident in myself and confident in my teammates, as we all are in each other."

During the few days since Darnold's debut, both coach Todd Bowles and team chairman/CEO Christopher Johnson have referred to the 21-year-old quarterback as "an old soul."

They have praised his even-keeled approach and exceptional work ethic, the likes of which are rare for rookies at this point in their careers.

One game in, the No. 3 overall draft pick out of USC is getting rave reviews from fans and national media, too. With a terrific prime-time performance, the Jets quarterback is already achieving celebrity status.

And through it all, Darnold remains unfazed.

"You know, just from being at SC, I'm used to some attention," he said. "I know leading up to my last year at SC, it was kind of hectic, in terms of Heisman (Trophy) talk and all that kind of stuff, but, you know Lester Hayes Jersey , I'm pretty used to that.

"But, it's different now, being in the NFL and all of these expectations and everything. It's different, but at the same time I'm just going to continue to be myself.

"I've been myself my entire career 鈥?high school, college, now the NFL 鈥?and I don't see myself changing any time soon."

That's precisely what made scouts so fond of Darnold, on top of his physical talents. The fact he maintains a cool about him in the face of pressure is extremely unique.

Now, here in New York, Darnold is shouldering the burden of trying to help deliver a frustrated franchise a Super Bowl someday.

It has been 50 years since Joe Namath backed up his guarantee, and Darnold is the 31st quarterback to start a game since Broadway Joe's final game for the team in 1976.

But maybe 鈥?just maybe 鈥?the Jets have their franchise quarterback?

"We won one game," Bowles said. "I can tell you after about 100 more of them whether we have one or not. Right now, it's a little early."

No doubt about it. And, Darnold's next big test comes Sunday in the Jets' home opener against the AFC East-rival Miami Dolphins.

If he plays a good game and wins that one, too, the hype around Darnold will really start to build.

Not that anyone will need to worry about how the youngster will handle it all.

"I haven't been paying much attention, but I'm sure people are talking about how good they expect our team to be in the next few years," Darnold said.

"I'm just going to continue to focus on the next game. That's all I can control and that's what I'm going to do every single week."

NOTES: WR Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) was a full participant in practice after missing the game at Detroit. "We're going to evaluate him during the week, see how he does," Bowles said. "He's got to get his wind up and we have to see if there is any aftereffects." ... S Marcus Maye (foot) P. J. Williams Jersey , LB Josh Martin (concussion) and LB Neville Hewitt (knee) were the only players who didn't practice. ... LB Kevin Pierre-Louis was activated from the suspended list, and OL Ben Braden was waived to make room on the roster.

The Jacksonville Jaguars used the NFL draft to build for the future, not necessarily this fall.

They used every pick on down-the-road starters instead of filling pressing needs.

It’s a luxury rarely seen in Jacksonville, which made the AFC championship game in January after a decade of failure and futility. The Jags return 18 of 22 starters from a team that led the NFL in rushing and ranked second in total defense.

Top executive Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell liked the team’s makeup enough that they actually made a best-player-available pick in the first round when they added Florida’s Taven Bryan to a defensive line that includes Pro Bowlers Calais Campbell, Malik Jackson and Yannick Ngakoue.

”We want the competition. We want it as much as we can get it,” Coughlin said following the three-day draft Saturday. ”That’s the one thing in our game that makes everybody better. These people were drafted to be football players, whether it’s a starter or whatever. It takes everybody.”

Bryan was the first of several Jacksonville draft picks expected to be backups as rookies.

The Jaguars envision LSU receiver DJ Chark (second round), Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison (third) and North Carolina State right tackle Will Richardson (fourth) as eventual starters, but neither of them is considered a plug-and-play guy.

”If they come in and play that is a bonus, too,” Caldwell said. ”We are not just going to say, `Hey, take it easy for the next two years.’ Those guys have to come in and compete. … Competition is great. The more depth you can have and be prepared for any situation then the better off you will be.”

Here are some other things to know about Jacksonville’s draft, which included Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee (sixth round), Wisconsin linebacker Leon Jacobs (seventh) and Mississippi State punter Logan Cooke (seventh).

TAKING A CHANCE: The Jaguars took a chance with the 129th pick on Richardson, who was suspended twice in three years at North Carolina State.

The 6-foot-6, 306-pound Richardson started 30 games at right tackle for the Wolfpack. He was suspended for the first two games last season for what he said was a marijuana-related violation. As a redshirt freshman in November 2015, he was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated. He was suspended one game for that and served a university-imposed suspension for the 2016 spring semester.

”Ideally, we don’t like any baggage Justin Bethel Jersey ,” Caldwell said. ”We don’t like to have to answer these questions on a day like today, but we also understand some of these players have a past and hopefully they grow from their past and become fine, upstanding citizens. The time that his discipline ended to this point and time in the draft and all the research and background checks and everything we’ve done on him has led us to believe that hopefully that’s behind him now. Time will tell, and it’s up to him to make sure that he holds his end of the bargain up.”

Richardson will compete at right tackle with 31-year-old Jermey Parnell, and if he doesn’t win the job, would be the team’s swing tackle in 2018.

DEVELOPMENTAL QB: Jacksonville added a third quarterback when it drafted Nebraska’s Tanner Lee in the sixth round. Lee will compete with Cody Kessler for the backup spot behind Blake Bortles. Coach Doug Marrone said the team would be open to keeping three QBs on the roster.

The 6-foot-4 Lee has a big arm, but he completed just 57.5 percent of his passes in 2017, with 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He transferred to Nebraska after three years at Tulane. Jaguars offensive assistant Eric Price served as Tulane’s offensive coordinator during Lee’s time on campus.

”We know the kid very well, his makeup, his intelligence, his drive, his attitude,” Caldwell said. ”He’s going to fit in well with Blake and Cody and that quarterback room. He’s an accurate passer when he has time like most of them. He was under a lot of duress this year at Nebraska. We feel like he can come in and he’s got a high ceiling because of the arm strength at the accuracy and the quick release.”

STILL NEEDED: The one position the Jaguars failed to address in the draft was tight end. They parted ways with veteran Marcedes Lewis in March, leaving them to rely on Austin Seferian-Jenkins in 2018.
