This could have been predicted: At least one New York Jets fan has invested in a custom Marcus Mariota jersey.

The former Oregon quarterback likely won't end up with the Jets, of course—barring a stunning draft-day trade. The Tennessee Titans own the No. 2 pick in Thursday's first round of the NFL draft, and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers widely expected to take former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston with the No. 1 pick, it's been a foregone conclusion that Mariota will end up in Tennessee. The Jets own the No. 6 pick.

But Jets fans, prone to dreaming and, well, other things, can't be blamed for clinging to the rumors that say the Jets might pull off a blockbuster deal for the Heisman Trophy winner.

Alas, here we are, with at least one Jets fans presumably spending a solid chunk of change for a custom Jets Mariota jersey (props to Busted Coverage for the discovery).

Some Twitter sleuthing reveals the above isn't the first Mariota Jets jersey the Internet has come across—or is it the same guy? Notice the hats on the Jets fan in the first photo above and this one below:
