Take a look at this clip from turnonthejets.com, where they discuss the various options for the draft, for our beloved Jets.
They have it pretty much on the money, in my opinion. I don’t dislike the idea of trading up for Melvin Ingram, but only if they are convinced that he is far and above better than the other pass rush prospects. If they aren’t, they should remain at 16 and take a Coples, or an Andre Branch, without giving up the additional picks.
The idea of trading into the bottom of the first round as well is a good one, and one that would certainly be in the wheelhouse of Mike Tannenbaum. Getting a safety and passrusher early I think is pivotal to a successful draft.
I also agree that they can solve the WR issue later in the draft. No reason to move up and get Michael Floyd.
