As the New York Jets head into the 2017 NFL Draft, here’s a complete list of all the draft picks they currently have and the order they’re in.
The New York Jets have been preparing for this moment for months now. The 2017 NFL Draft brings them a golden opportunity to bring in a ton of new and young talent that are ready to make an impact immediately upon arrival.

With the No. 6 overall pick, the Jets could consider trading down, taking the best player available at cornerback/safety, or even stir the pot by drafting yet another quarterback into the mix. For a team that has several issues all across the board, they have a good amount of draft picks to continue their rebuilding efforts and address a few of them right off the bat.
The Jets are hoping that this draft class gives them several impact players and those that could develop into future stars. Since this upcoming season could very well end up being a bad one, they’re setting themselves up nicely to be contenders again in the future.
