These were Johnson’s first public comments on Darnold since the Jets drafted him last month.
Johnson attended the charity event in Manhattan to raise money for the Lupus Research Alliance. And he made it clear he was thrilled the Jets landed Darnold聽at No. 3.
I am a really happy man, Johnson said. I think that we did really well. I think that the key to everything was moving up in the draft. That was not a move for the meek. In my view, it was a pretty aggressive move. People have argued that it was an expensive move. I think it was a move we had to make. We also got a little lucky. Luck goes a long way in the NFL. And we’ll see how far it can take us, but I’m really happy with how things stand right now.
