2017 NFL Draft Jets First Round Draft Discussion

We have just about reached the long awaited opening of the 2017 NFL Draft. Tonight begins the third draft in the Mike Maccagnan Era (and ninth in the Gang Green Nation Era). The Jets have short-term and long-term needs all over the roster, but only one first round pick, unless they manage to acquire a second through a trade.

Will the Jets find their quarterback of the future? Will the Jets finally add a great outside pass rusher? Will they solidify the secondary with one of the top safeties or cornerbacks, or upgrade the running game with a running back? Will they trade up? Will they trade down? Will they miss their pick(s) entirely as they go out for cheesesteaks at an inopportune time?  We don't know, and they may not know at the moment. A lot depends on what the teams in front of them do.

Use this thread to talk about the 2017 NFL Draft. Will will provide new threads if they are necessary along with updates through the night. We ask you kindly to avoid spoilers on the picks from Twitter. Stick to what you see on television when talking about the Draft.
