Jets Trade Up in Draft to Add Bryce Petty

iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The New York Jets made a quarterback controversy even more interesting when the team traded up in the fourth round to draft Bryce Petty of Baylor.

"That was the longest 48 hours I've ever had in my life," Petty told reporters after being drafted.

Petty said falling to the fourth round didn't bother him.

"No, not at all," he said. "That's part of it, when people question you. My job is to prove to the 31 other teams what they're missing out on."

Petty will be added to a depth chart that includes Geno Smith and veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans.

The Jets haven't named a starter, saying Smith and Fitzpatrick will compete in training camp. Coach Todd Bowles said Smith will go into training camp as the No. 1 quarterback, but he also said that it could change.
