Inside the War Room

These three will be in the war room Thursday through Saturday.

Cimini has a great feature today about what it will be like next weekend in Florham Park. He notes the 13 people in the room as the Jets make their decisions. It also offers a look back at what things were like during the most significant Draft move the team has made in its recent history, the trade up three years ago for Mark Sanchez.

The Seahawks passed on Sanchez and took linebacker Aaron Curry, causing relief in the Jets' draft room. But the drama wasn't over because they still had to finalize the trade. It was time to play high-stakes poker; Tannenbaum wanted the Browns to make the first move.

So they waited, staring at the phone, hoping.

After 70 seconds, the phone rang, with a 440 area code flashing on the screen -- Cleveland. The room exploded, and the Jets had their quarterback.

The groundwork that goes into the Draft is amazing right down to working out the parameters to trades that might never come about. This article is definitely worth a read.
