Jets acquire third overall pick from Colts

Adjust Comment Print

The Jets send two 2018 second round picks (No. 37 and No. 49), a 2019 second-round pick and the No. 6 overall selection to move up a few spots. The Jets have short term options on their roster in Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown, but they have failed to find a franchise quarterback in recent years. We feel like at 6 we'll still be able to acquire a premium player. By doing this, the Jets rule out any potential trade up ahead of them, making them a near lock to grab a quarterback at No. 3.

The Jets had an extra second-round pick this year because of the Sheldon Richardson/Jermaine Kearse trade they pulled off with Seattle before last season.

It's a great trade for the Colts in terms of value, especially if Andrew Luck can stay healthy, and a clear sign that they are done trying to build through free agency and are moving strictly to the draft until they can start piecing some things together.

Vehicle ramming attack kills two Israelis in West Bank

The blockbuster trades executed between the Colts and Jets on Saturday officially ushered in the NFL's annual pre-draft madness period.

NY gave up a lot here, but the organization has basically been looking for its franchise QB for four decades. The only quarterback under contract for more than one year is Christian Hackenberg, and we know he's not the future.

The only player Indy has signed so far is defensive end Denico Autry, who played past year in Oakland.

Google Maps adds wheelchair-accessible transit navigation
Google Maps on Thursday launched a "wheelchair-accessible" option for six major cities. To use the feature, punch in a route as you usually would, then tap on "options".

For all of us Jets fans, we really hope you get this right because you were just swindled out of drafting in the entire second round.

They're still in position that select a player who will immediately help their team without feeling guilty about potentially missing out on Penn State running back Saquon Barkley or North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb. "It would have to be a pretty attractive offer for us to move away from six because of the player we think we're going to get".
