Round 1 (#18) - WR Marquis Lee
- Marquis Lee brings that game breaking element to the receiving core the Jets needed.
*TRADE* Jets sees Jace Amaro slipping out of the first round and decides to call Idzik’s old buddies in Seattle. The Jets trade this year’s 2nd and 3rd round picks to move back into the first round. Jace's game tape outweighed his combine performance allowing the Jets to add another talented player to the receiving core.
