Earlier this week I outlined how the Jets could end up with the 4th pick in the 2017 NFL draft. However that all depended on them losing to the Bills today.

The Jets dominated the Bills from start to finish and in turn secured the 6th overall selection in the NFL draft. With strength of schedule how it is, the Jets can't move up and they can't move down, regardless of what happens in the late games.

We'll be talking draft in more details as the weeks go by. Last time the Jets held the 6th overall selection in the draft, they selected Leonard Williams in 2015, that seems to have worked out quite well as Williams has shown himself to be one of the best players on this team.
