NFL Draft – Five Trades The New York Jets Could Make

Dalbin Osorio with five potential trades for the New York Jets during the NFL Draft

The NFL Draft is only a nine days away. Armed with 12 picks, the New York Jets have the opportunity to be very active May 8th -10th. While the Jets could very well utilize ALL of their draft picks, here are 5 trades that they can make that will allow them the opportunity to maximize their selections. These trades also don’t hamper their ability to improve their team going forward. All trades that I’m suggesting are based off the trade value chart. I’ll be releasing rounds one-four of my mock draft this week, but I used DraftTek’s simulation to see who the Jets could take at those spots.

Scouting The Draft – Running Back Isaiah Crowell

Dalbin Osorio with a scouting report on running back Isaiah Crowell

The New York Jets are expected to have as many as 12 draft picks in May’s draft, barring any trades. With holes to fill across the board, and the Jets opting to not fill some of them through free agency, there are many prospects in play for the Jets.

Arguably the two position groups that many expect to not be affected by the draft are running back and defensive line. The Jets recently signed former Titans Running Back Chris Johnson (who will now team with Chris Ivory to form a “Predators” backfield). There is still a chance the Jets look to improve their stable of running backs. We continue our series with a fan favorite of #JetsTwitter, Isaiah Crowell.
