Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, the New York Jets have six picks to work with. Here’s their complete draft order from Rounds 1-7.
The 2018 NFL Draft is finally here! The New York Jets are ready to make one of the biggest decisions in franchise history once they’re on the clock with the No. 3 overall pick. Make no mistake about it, the Jets will be drafting their next future franchise quarterback.
Who knows which quarterback general manager Mike Maccagnan will ultimately decide on but in the grand scheme of things, this will likely make or break his career with the Jets. He traded away a lot to move up from the No. 6 overall pick to No. 3 and well, it’s time to see if it will go down as a smart move or a dumb one if things don’t pan out.
As of right now, the Jets have a total of six draft picks to work with. Due to their blockbuster trade with the Indianapolis Colts in order to trade up, they don’t currently own a pick in Round 2 of this year’s draft.

Here’s the official draft order of the Jets heading into tonight:
Round 1 – No. 3Round 3 – No. 72Round 4 – No. 107Round 5 – No. 157Round 6 – No. 179Round 7 – No. 235
Hopefully, this year’s final draft class is another good one since the Jets are still rebuilding their roster in hopes of a brighter future. Of course, winning football games will help speed up that rebuild as the Jets are coming off two straight seasons ending with a 5-11 record.
This upcoming season will be another test for the Jets as they hope this year’s draft class can contribute immediately. It’s unclear if their newly drafted young quarterback will even play in 2018 but one thing is for sure in that there is hope that they’ll finally have a signal caller that’s worth talking about once the pick is in later on tonight.
