He should make bold moves during the three-day draft to position the Jets for a playoff run in 2014 and beyond. After Idzik used only about 47% of his available salary-cap space this offseason (excluding the projected rookie pool amount), he must be aggressive this week to fill a few glaring holes on Rex Ryan’s team. To that end, the Jets have told teams that they’re interested in trading up in the first round, according to a source.
Again, I'm not sure this is necessarily as news-worthy as it would appear on the surface. This is the time where teams reach out to gauge what it would take to move up if the board falls a certain way. Maybe a player the team loves unexpectedly falls, or the board means a player who was supposed to fall will not. There is always a certain price where a team would move up. It probably would be bigger news if the Jets were not reaching out to other teams at this point.
