Multiple sources tell Ralph Vacchiano of SNY that the Jets seem “determined” to trade down from No. 3 overall.
“They seem to really, really want to move down,” an NFL executive tells Vacchiano. “Maybe they’re just keeping their options open, but it sure seems like that No. 3 pick is for sale.”
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.
Vacchiano says that the Jets will likely pitch teams the opportunity to draft one of Ohio State DE Nick Bosa, Alabama DT Quinnen Williams, and Kentucky EDGE Josh Allen, depending on what happens with the first two picks.
We’ll have more regarding the Jets as the news is available.
