National Football League draft: How Jets, Colts trade impacts Bucs

20 March 2018

And let us not forget about the "once in a generation" talent, running back Saquon Barkley. But if the Browns have their eye on a QB and absolutely want to make sure they get him, they could draft him at No. 1 and hope Barkley is available at their No. 4 selection. It's still likely that the Bills will draft a quarterback somewhere, as they have A.J. However, if the Broncos offer their second-round pick, both of their third-round picks, and a future draft pick, the Giants would be stupid to not at least listen.

Woodhead broke in to the National Football League with the New York Jets in 2009, but eventually caught on for two seasons with the New England Patriots and four more with the San Diego Chargers. Their trade with the New York Jets landed them the No. 6, No. 37 and No. 49 picks in the draft.

The Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets continued to shake up what has already been a hectic NFL offseason by swapping first round picks for this upcoming NFL Draft, with the Jets also sending the Colts second-round choices both this year and next year.

The 2018 draft class is fairly deep when it comes to first-round prospects.

Whether or not this makes sense after signing Teddy Bridgewater is a discussion for another day.

In the AFC East, having good quarterback play has been a problem for the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Miami Dolphins. The same is true of Lamar Jackson, who is also now certain to end up somewhere other than NY to begin his pro career.

And it should be Sam Darnold.

Much smarter NFLers than I told me in the last few days they think GM Dave Gettleman will pass on a quarterback to fill another major need at number two overall, and I don't doubt it.

Would the Browns trade down from No. 1? This is normal for teams but the Jets were robbed and yet, they actually believe they pulled some major move. He became a starter for the Titans early in his rookie season and was a consistent playmaker during his four years with the team.

Should those things come to pass, it will definitely help the Bears, though.

And that's yet another fortuitous development for Dorsey, who likely was always leaning quarterback first overall and now might also have the opportunity to draft Myles Garrett's bookend (Bradley Chubb), the offense's new identity (Saquon Barkley), continue building a beastly offensive line (Quenton Nelson) or perhaps go in a different direction.

If they wait and select a QB fourth, Darnold will surely be gone and it is likely Josh Rosen will be booking a flight to NY (either team) by then. If Barkley is on the board they will obviously go that route, if not, perhaps they trade down. "Talked to a couple of other teams, but we still wanted to stay in position in that top 10 where we could still get a premium player".

The move to No. 3 now all but confirms the Jets will be taking a quarterback in the 2018 draft. "I'd be a fool not to take his advice and take the advice he gives me to the game".
