Colts And Jets Agree To Huge Trade Involving #3 Overall Pick

  • The New York Jets will pick third in the NFL draft after trading with the Indianapolis

"Talked to a couple of other teams, but we still wanted to stay in position in that top 10 where we could still get a premium player".

Now, the attention shifts to New York Giants GM David Gettleman and the second overall pick, which he could use on a quarterback or perhaps trade to another AFC East club with a dire QB situation and plenty of motivation to move up, a process the Buffalo Bills have of course already begun. NY is now positioned to select one of the draft's top quarterbacks while the Bills have to figure out their next move.

It seemed likely all along that the Jets would draft a quarterback high this year.

The trade makes sense for the Colts because it will allow them to add depth to their talent-thin roster.

I do not think the Giants are married to the idea of taking a quarterback at number two overall. Many draft observers and National Football League insiders expect the Giants to take a player other than a quarterback, maybe offensive lineman Quenton Nelson or defensive end Bradley Chubb, but can they really pass up the chance to draft Eli Manning's successor?

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.

New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner, Tom Benson, dies at age 90
In addition to the title, while Benson was the owner the franchise made two NFC title game appearances and 10 playoff berths. And for New Orleans and for the saints in the pelican was never stronger than it was right here at the very end.

The Colts, meanwhile, get a huge haul to move down only three spots.

It's possible that all of the draft's top quarterback prospects will be on the board at No. 3, if the Browns select running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 1 overall pick.

The New York Jets were oddly finessed in this trade, just a few days after Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield's Pro Days.

Even if two quarterbacks were selected ahead of the Jets (maybe with a team trading into the two spots in front of them), however, the Jets should be able to get a signal-caller they're happy with.

The young GM is smartly trying to take a slow and steady approach to rebuilding this team, but is getting heat for not spending (blowing? wasting?) more of his abundant cap space in free agency. NY signed Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater in free agency, but both are on short-term deals. The Broncos, like these teams, invested two years in Case Keenum, but they were the only team among this group to invest a really solid amount in their quarterback after the 2018 season. If four quarterbacks go in the top five picks, then I've got news for you - six may go in the top 16 picks.
