Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select DT Quinnen Williams

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets taking DT Quinnen Williams third overall

The New York Jets stayed put with the third overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and selected Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. He will join Leonard Williams, Henry Anderson and Steve McLendon to form a very talented defensive line (sound familiar?) and bring a unique pass rushing ability to the group. To be clear, this Williams is a superior prospect to the four other recent interior defensive linemen the Jets have taken in round one and is arguably the most talented player in this draft class.

TOJ Pick Six – NFL Draft Trades New York Jets Can Make

Dalbin Osorio with six prospective trades the New York Jets could make tonight

Mike Maccagnan has not been hesitant to make trades around and during the NFL Draft, whether it’s for veteran reinforcements (Ryan Clady) or star players (Brandon Marshall). This year, there seems to be an abundance of guys rumored to be on the block. With the Jets having limited draft capital, it seems like they won’t be getting involved. However, Macchiato Mike would be wise to circle back to teams he has traded with to both add draft capital and/or more talent to a team that is still a few players away from competing for a playoff spot. Here are 6 trades the Jets could make this weekend with partners they’ve had in the past under Mike Maccagnan, as well as who i’d take with the picks received using Matt Miller’s mock draft from this morning as a guide:

Final 2019 1st Round Mock Draft (CS)

Clayton Smarslok with his final full first round 2019 NFL mock draft

Draft Day is finally upon us. It’s been a long road, especially for us Jets fans, but it’s bittersweet that it’s coming to an end. After doing a few different versions over the last few months I thought it would be best to finish it how it started, full first round, no trades allowed. Trades are impossible to predict and because the draft is hard to predict as well, there’s no need to make it more difficult.

In the past what I have done was do a mixture of what I would do and what I thought would happen but not this time around. There are so many different rumors out there around the league so this is my chance to distinguish what I think is real and what is fake. With that being said, this is what I think is going to happen and absolutely not what I would do for all 32 selections.

New York Jets – Day Before NFL Draft Mock Draft Roundup

Stephen Russo rounds up all the day before NFL Draft mock picks for the New York Jets

Is Arizona drafting Kyler Murray number one overall? Does San Francisco truly value Quinnen Williams over Nick Bosa? Is the smoke around the Jets and Ed Oliver real? We have reached that time of year (which is pretty much year-round at this point) where you can’t believe a single word from any “source” regarding what will happen on Thursday night in Nashville at the 2019 NFL Draft. The rumor mill is in full swing. Smoke screens are everywhere. Per Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, who tweeted out that his trusted source said “No one f**king knows anything right now. It’s going to be an interesting Thursday night.”

Simply put: Trust. No. One.
