ProFootballTalk: Jets looking to trade up?

Unread postby jfiling » Fri Mar 02, 2007 7:00 pm

We're hearing that the New York Jets are considering an effort to trade up from the No. 25 spot in round one to the top of the draft.

The Jets would like to get in position to draft either receiver Calvin Johnson or running back Adrian Peterson.

To ensure that they'll get either guy, the Jets likely would have to land no lower than No. 3.


That sounds like it could be perfect. I gotta look at the draft value chart to see how many extra picks we could get from that trade.

geez, to come up from #25 to #3, they'd have to pull a Ditka X 2.

We'd have all of NYJ picks until 2009!

Wow, looking at the chart, they'd have to give us every pick they have plus a player. How about their 1st, 3rd, and 4th plus Dewayne Robertson?

did a little research and this is the way it adds up...

Pick #3 is worth 2200 points

The Jets have Pick #25 (775) #37 (540) #59 (320) #90 (145) in the first 3 rounds and totals 1780 still 420 short.

But they could add next year's 1st round as well and it would be worth approx this year's 2nd round choice , so 500+ points. That would do.

BTW, Robertson is a slower fatter and more uninspired Gerald Warren. he also makes a shit load of money as a #4 overall choice.

Not sure how I would feel about trading down that far.... that is quite a drop.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Depending on how much the Browns spend in FA, a trade down might be financially prudent, as well as allowing them to draft a lot more young players. Just saying.

though I'd love having extra picks...25 is waaay to far down given the needs of this team. at the very least we would need next year's #1 pick among several picks this year.
