Jets net No. 3 pick in trade with Colts

USA Today Sports Image

Where we're at, we've got the picks, we've got the draft capital.

The team has not released details, but it's reported that it is a one-year deal. The Giants need a running back - they interviewed several, including Barkley, at the combine - but running backs are not often drafted that high. The Colts get additional picks to help rebuild a weak overall roster, while still potentially landing the same player they would have taken anyway, while the Jets get a chance to give their team and fans the franchise quarterback for which they've been desperate for almost a decade.

Second, although this is so obvious it barely needs to be said, Jets fans can now be certain that their team will be drafting a quarterback in the first round. NY also has Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg on the roster, along with Joel Stave, but none appear to be viable candidates for the starting job - and their roster spots could be in serious jeopardy.

The New York Jets traded up to the third overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Two first round picks in this year's draft are worth about the same value as a first round pick (and the Jets' number 37 overall pick is basically an extended first rounder...), and a future second is generally given the same value as a current year third round pick.

Despite failing to land a franchise signal-caller, this current Jets regime has been unusually busy the quarterback department.

And while the Royals don't tend to use surnames (after all, how many Prince Harrys do you know?), his is Mountbatten-Windsor. But based on documents available on the Privy Council website, the consent declaration language is fairly typical.

The only way this offseason comes back to bite Beane and the Bills is if the team is unable to get a top quarterback, and there is severe regression on offense in 2018. Now, the ball is in New York's court.

Multiple mocks have the Browns taking quarterback Sam Darnold out of USC. Barkley impressed so much at the NFL Scouting Combine many believed he would be the top pick but now the Browns would have to settle for the third-best quarterback if they waited until the fourth overall pick to take one. They could go Barkley if Cleveland passes on him or they could go defensive end or just about any other direction. Three years later Big Blue took Heisman Trophy victor Ron Dayne out of Wisconsin at No. 11 while the Jets took DE Shaun Ellis a pick later. As for trading back up with No. 33, No. 35 or No. 64 in the second round, I'm not sure they'll need to do that. And knowing how things look when quarterbacks start coming off the board, they're going to go fast.

If they wait and select a QB fourth, Darnold will surely be gone and it is likely Josh Rosen will be booking a flight to NY (either team) by then.

"I know the defense", Williamson told the team's website of the Jets' 3-4 defensive alignment.

With New York missing out on Kirk Cousins in free agency, they were definitely in the trade market to move up for a quarterback. It also removes the Jets from having to "settle" for Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma). Don't get me wrong, I do think that Barkley is the most talented player in the draft.
