Good morning, Gang Green Nation! With a draft that by many accounts is short on star power at the top end of round 1 and long in depth farther down in the draft order, the Jets may be looking to trade down this year. That, of course, is easier said than done. Presumably the other 31 NFL teams are aware of the paucity of ultra high end talent at the top of the draft and they may be reluctant to trade up with the Jets. In addition, the lack of great quarterback prospects this year makes getting a big haul in a trade down especially problematic this year. This may point towards prioritizing top 2023 picks in a Jets trade down scenario. Giving up some high picks in the 2023 draft might be more palatable to some teams than giving up a big 2022 draft package. In addition, the Jets could presumably acquire better draft assets by waiting a year for the return, as traditionally draft picks a year out have to be higher picks to make up an equivalent package to draft picks in the current year. Whether the Jets would consider deferring some picks until next year in exchange for a better set of assets remains to be seen, but it might provide a way to maximize the chances of a good return in a trade down scenario if the Jets aren’t thrilled with the available options when their picks come up.
