N.Y. Jets have interest in trading Valence Electrons
The New York Jets have an interesting idea about trading up in the 2016 NFL draft to select an electron.
While there are several teams that have already been linked to the Jets’ first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, this is the first time that the team has made a move up in a round.
The Jets’ draft board could consist of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Washington State Cougars, and Tennessee Titans.
The team has also reportedly expressed interest in the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jets could have an interest in a cornerback or wide receiver, as well.
The Eagles are currently in the middle of a rebuilding process with new general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Doug Pederson.
The team is expected to lose a number of key players in the offseason, with the team reportedly losing cornerback Brandon Boykin, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, and defensive end Jared Odrick.
The Eagles could be able to get in on the ground floor if they select an electric cornerback or receiver in the second or third rounds.
The Bears are also rumored to be interested in trading up for the Jets first-rounder in 2018.
The Bears were linked to a number in the first round last year, with Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Adolphus Washington and defensive lineman DeForest Buckner also reportedly on the board.
The former is now on the Saints, while the latter is still under contract with the Bears.
The Jaguars are currently trying to move up to the top of the draft with the top pick, but have not made any moves up in this draft.
If they did, it would make sense to take an electron and move up with them.
If the Jets did want to move to the third round, they could use the Eagles, Bears, and Cardinals to move on.
The first two would give them an electric corner or receiver that would help offset the losses of Boykin and Odrick, while also adding a veteran pass rusher.
The Broncos could use a cornerback, as the Broncos have a number that is projected to go in the top four.
The Broncos are reportedly interested in swapping down with the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars for a cornerback and wide receiver.
The Redskins could move up a couple spots to grab a defensive tackle.
They are also linked to several players, with defensive tackle Ryan Kerrigan reportedly on their radar.
The Titans are currently working on a trade that would send quarterback Marcus Mariota to the New York Giants for the No. 1 overall pick.
The Giants could also use a player like the Eagles to add a veteran edge rusher.
The Redskins are currently linked to wide receiver DeSean Jackson and cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and could move down to take a quarterback.
The Bills are reportedly linked to cornerback Jalston Fowler and cornerback Jarrad Davis, while they could also target a cornerback in the third or fourth rounds.
