Jets swap with Colts to land third pick in National Football League draft

Jets swap with Colts to land third pick in National Football League draft

Remember that classic scene in one of those old Clint Eastwood movies, when he's staring down those three other gunslingers, all of them twitchy and ready at a flea's fart to unholster and start firing?

But which quarterback you ask? It belongs to the Jets, too.

THEN THERE were the seven moves in free agency. Not only do the Bills not have to trade up, but they also land a top quarterback. Whether the normally scattershot Jets hit anything is another matter. They could decide to stay with the fourth pick and choose Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward after trading for Randall. They just signed the injury-prone Sam Bradford and are going to look quarterback in the first round. This time, it didn't involve quarterbacks or star players switching allegiances. And I can't wait to know who it will be.

Whether or not the Jets sit at the three spot will depend on just how exhausted of waiting Maccagnan has grown.

Even with the third overall pick, it's highly possible that multiple quarterbacks could be off the board by the time the Jets are on the clock. Maccagnan has been trying to build the Jets in a methodical way, more on defense than offense. "The coaching staff has positive energy, great energy and I think that with the combination of the talent that's on the team, that's something special to be a part of".

The main objective of the Jets going from No. 6 to No. 3 is to jump the Broncos at No. 5 and also make sure they are in front of the Browns when they make their second pick at No. 4, just in case they take Saquon Barkley first overall.

The bottom eventually fell out. "I want to say publicly, thanks to Tyrod for his efforts here and we wish him the best". He wanted to move up.

But Mike Maccagnan is exhausted of being stuck in the middle.

On the other side of this deal, the Colts are presumably counting on Andrew Luck to return this coming season and had no need to draft one at No. 3.

Maccagnan and the Jets go all-in here, even if they can't control what the Browns and Giants do ahead of them.

Can Darnold, Rosen or Allen be the guy to lead the Jets for the next 10 years? He would nearly certainly have been available at six.

Most recently, Buffalo traded offensive tackle Cordy Glenn and the 21st overall pick in the 2018 draft to the Cincinnati Bengals in exchange for the 12th overall selection, better positioning themselves for a future move further up the draft board. Buffalo or Denver might want to move up for a quarterback, which could give the Browns extra picks and, if the trade is with Denver, would net them one of the top trio at the fifth pick.

Five years ago, it cost Miami only an additional second-round pick to elevate in a swap of first-round picks from No. 12 to No. 3. With his personality, some Baker may remind some Jets fans of Joe Namath.

So once again the Jets were looking for the heir to Namath. For Bridgewater, it's because of the uncertainty surrounding his durability and pending re-acclimation to starting after missing most of the past two years due to a dislocated knee. It was over a century for the Cubs.

Woodhead broke in to the National Football League with the New York Jets in 2009, but eventually caught on for two seasons with the New England Patriots and four more with the San Diego Chargers. It feels like more than that today.
