According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio via NFL.com, New York Jets general manager John idzik is keeping his options open and may be open to trading down in the first round.
“I think the real substantive talks will come tomorrow,” Idzik said Wednesday, according to ESPN.com’s Sal Paolantonio. “I think we’re in a position at No. 9 and No. 13 in the first round to get two really good players, but it also opens up the gates for potential alternatives, potentially trading down and picking up more players. We’ll be open minded about it. This is a very deep draft.”
The Jets could certainly use more picks. It might not be a bad idea to trade either the 9th or 13th pick. Meanwhile they would still have one first round pick to use.
