The Jets traded their sixth overall pick, two second-round picks and a 2019 second-round pick to the Colts for the No. 3 spot. If you say at No. 3 the Jets pick has no impact on the G-Men, you're incorrect.
The Jets were unsuccessful in their bid to land free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, who signed a three-year, $84 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings. Previously, at No. 6, the Jets were behind as many as three quarterback-needy teams.
There are four consensus quarterbacks most believe will go in the top five, in nearly any order: Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen, UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.
General manager Mike Maccagnan has been zeroing in on the QBs up close, attending the pro days of both Mayfield and Rosen.
Or the Jets could draft Baker Mayfield and completely render my prediction wrong. In this, the entire dynamic of the 2018 NFL Draft has changed on a dime.
Pryor had only 20 catches for 240 yards and one touchdown with Washington, a major drop-off after he erupted for 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four scores the previous season with the Cleveland Browns. "It would have to be a pretty attractive offer for us to move back from 6 because of the player we think we will get". This move will inevitably lead to more draft trades as teams jockey to select one of the top-level quarterbacks in the pool.
Giant metal bracket creates 'madness' ahead of NCAA tournament

Bills GM Brandon Beane also used to work under Giants GM Dave Gettleman when the two were together in Carolina.
The team has not released details, but it's reported that it is a one-year deal.
It's called hedging your bet. There are also plenty of people (including me) who think that the Cleveland Browns will still spend the first overall pick on a quarterback, despite trading for Tyrod Taylor. Ayers, 32, started 10 of 12 games last season, finishing with 31 tackles and 2.0 sacks.
Three second round picks. That adds up to 1,490 points and represents fair value.
Likewise, Arizona at No. 15 probably recognizes the Jets deal leaves them out in the cold when it comes to the quarterback class, with three likely going in the top five. Some of the blame can be shifted to Jerry Reese's magic draft board. Either way, the Browns will be watching the Giants closely as their pick at two will dictate the options left for Dorsey and his war room. Three years later Big Blue took Heisman Trophy victor Ron Dayne out of Wisconsin at No. 11 while the Jets took DE Shaun Ellis a pick later.
