GMs Expect Jets To Trade Down From No. 3 Overall


Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that while there was a sense in recent days that the Jets wouldn’t be able to trade down from No. 3 overall, three GMs have told him that they think New York will “definitely” trade out as long as Nick Bosa is not available.

Mehta adds that these GMs do not expect the Redskins to be a trade partner for the No. 3 overall pick.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, as Jets GM Mike Maccagnan has made it clear several times that he’s “open” to moving back and picking up some extra picks to offset what they gave up for Sam Darnold last year.

The Jets are currently without a second-round selection, so it’s likely they’re hoping to recoup at least a second-rounder in any trade back. 

For what it’s worth, the Jets have done work on a number of prospects that could be available after the first five picks including Houston DT Ed Oliver, Iowa TE Noah Fant, and OL Jonah Williams

We’ll have more regarding the Jets as the news is available.
