The New York Jets currently own six picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. Here’s their full draft order of every pick in each round.
Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, the New York Jets are ready to make some serious noise. It’s been forever since they had a future franchise quarterback and now they are in a position to address it once and for all. Not only will they get one of the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft but also have more players to add to their rebuilding roster.
At this point in time, the Jets have six draft picks. They made a blockbuster trade with the Indianapolis Colts to move up from the No. 6 overall pick to No. 3. In doing so, they gave up not one but both of their two second-round picks to swap places.
Make no mistake about it, this was done with one purpose and only one purpose in mind. The Jets knew they couldn’t risk anything in this year’s draft and made the trade up to likely select someone they feel can be the next face of their franchise.

Some might say they gave up a lot but in the grand scheme of things, you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs. Parting with a lot of draft picks to move up three spots to guarantee you a top quarterback you’ve had on your draft board for months is very much worth it.
Here’s the official draft order for the Jets with each pick they’ll have in each round:
Round 1 – No. 3Round 3 – No. 72Round 4 – No. 107Round 5 – No. 157Round 6 – No. 179Round 7 – No. 235
At the end of the day, this move should provide the Jets with a quarterback that has major upside and worth getting excited about in the future. To have a young player that’s being groomed for having a successful future under center could turn into a great new positive chapter in Jets history.
Hopefully, the Jets get their first-round pick of a quarterback right and end up with a solid draft class altogether. It all comes down to general manager Mike Maccagnan and which quarterback he feels can push the Jets towards being playoff contenders again in the future. Here’s to having faith in him one more time to get it right once and for all.
