Is Trading Up a Good Idea for the Jets?


Our friends at “Gang Green Nation” debate the idea of trading up in the first round of the draft. Take a look:

I think they have it right on the head here. If the Jets are going to move up, it had better be for a guy that is going to make an immediate impact that is huge. If it’s Melvin Ingram, they had better be sure he will be a great rusher off the edge. If they could have gotten someon as good at pick 16th, and instead they moved up and lost other picks, Jets fans will not look too kindly on the move.
