Jordan Travis is off the board in the 2024 NFL Draft, and he’s lined up for a potential sit-and-learn succession plan with an AFC franchise.

In the 5th round, the New York Jets made the move to grab Travis with the 171st overall pick in the draft. Travis becomes the 8th overall QB to come off the board in this year’s draft but is just the 2nd QB to be selected since the first round on Thursday night. South Carolina’s Spencer Rattler was also selected in the 5th round.

Travis’ shot to early playing time is a bit blocked with the Jets, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad situation for the former Florida State star. He will get a chance to sit and learn behind Aaron Rodgers for a few years, a star quarterback who once experienced a similar situation with the Green Bay Packers to begin his career.

If things work out, Travis could be in line to land the starting job for the Jets as Rodgers’ career winds down in the years to come. For now, he will try to carve out a spot on the depth chart as the backup QB to begin his NFL journey.

Travis is also a part of an offensive-heavy draft for the Jets. New York began the draft by picking some protection for Rodgers with Penn State OT Olu Fashanu in the first round.

The Jets also grabbed a few weapons on the offensive side of the ball with Western Kentucky WR Malachi Corley in the 3rd round and a pair of running backs in Wisconsin’s Braelon Allen (4th round) and South Dakota State’s Isaiah Davis (5th round).
