Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, here is a live tracker for everything and anything involving the New York Jets as they enter Rounds 4-7.

The 2018 NFL Draft will conclude this afternoon starting at 12:00 P.M. Eastern Time and will feature Rounds 4-7. In these rounds, the New York Jets at this point in time have four picks to work with.

Could general manager Mike Maccagnan make some moves in order to acquire more picks in this year’s draft? There have been rumors circulating that he’s shopping around some players but your guess is as good as mine.

Either way, expect the Jets to hopefully add some talent to areas of need. From offensive guard, running back, edge linebacker, and even cornerback, it’s expected the Jets will make wise decisions to bolster these positional groups.

More from The Jet Press

For this live tracker, we here at The Jet Press will only post tweets/updates from official, verified, and legitimate sources so don’t worry about anything fake or bogus being updated below. If Maccagnan makes any big trades or the Jets are rumored to select a certain player when they’re on the clock, this will keep you posted.

Last Update: 4/28/2018 @ 7:54 P.M. Eastern Time

It's the old glass half full or half empty deal. The #Jets got better along the DL this weekend and that's a good thing. People point to no OL, but I say they were very active in free agency there. If you told me this was the haul before the draft Thursday night, sign me up.

Maccagnan tells reporters #Jets are very interested to see how RB Trenton Cannon performs as a return man.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

Maccagnan estimates Herndon (knee) will be able to practice within 4-6 weeks. #Jets

Calling his drafting by the #Jets a big surprise, new #Jets TE @Chris_Authentic says he's a blocker who is also a threat with the ball in his hands: https://t.co/e1igWNB0Vm. #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/eM3C5tl5Pb

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

Jets drafted 2 NCAA Div. II players this yr: DL Nathan Shepherd of Fort Hays St. & RB/KR Trenton Cannon of Virginia St. Last time Jets took 2 D-II players in same draft: 1979 (RB Gordy Sprattler of N. Dakota St., T Steve Sybeldon of N. Dakota).

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) April 28, 2018

A third-round pick of the @Colts in 2015, Henry Anderson started 19 games for Indy. Jets play a 3-4 and the Colts are switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3. Maccagnan gets him for a 7th-rounder: https://t.co/EUr6cW0BWd pic.twitter.com/Fcm3JpNi0l

Whew. After the late-draft trading activity, Jets spent #179 on DB Parry Nickerson of Tulane & #180 on DL "Foley" Fatukasi of UConn. Nickerson 1st Green Wave player taken by Jets since '91, Fatukasi first Husky picked by Jets since '63.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) April 28, 2018

We've selected DE Folorunso Fatusaki! pic.twitter.com/onlYlRMb6D

— New York Jets (@nyjets) April 28, 2018

With the 1st two of their 3 sixth-rounders in the #NFLDraft, the #Jets have selected Tulane DB Parry Nickerson AND Connecticut DE Folorunso Fatukasi. They no longer have a 7th, sending that to the @Colts for DL Henry Anderson. Getting better along that D-Line.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

At 180 in Round 6, #Jets take Connecticut DT Foley Fatukasi. They (probably) have one pick left, at 204, in Round 6.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

Nickerson had 6 picks last year and ran a 4.32 40 #nyj

Back-to-back Round 6 picks coming up for #Jets at 179 and 180. Then 204. Then they're done. Maybe.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

#Jets have three picks left, all in Round 6 — 179, 180, 204.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

Anderson was a 3rd round pick of the Colts in 2015. He had 3 sacks in 29 games for Indy #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) April 28, 2018

Colts traded DE Henry Anderson to Jets for 7th-round pick (235th).

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 28, 2018

After 2 draft-pick trades with the Vikings, Jets now have no 5th-rounders and 3 6th-rounders—#179, #180 & #204. Last time Jets had back-to-back picks was 2014 (WR Quincy Enunwa at #209, LB IK Enemkpali at #210).

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) April 28, 2018

As it stands now, the Jets have the following picks in the 6th Round: 179, 180 and 204. So back-to-back early there. #NFLDraft

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

Trading back again with the @Vikings

They get 167th and 225th and we get back 180th and 204th. pic.twitter.com/t1cxBggQA4

The #Jets have traded back a second time here in 5th round and again it's with the @Vikings. #NFLDraft

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

Jets entered this draft with an NFL-low 6 picks. Makes sense for Maccagnan to want to add picks. I'm sure he's trying to get another pick next year too after trading away the 2nd rounder in 2019.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) April 28, 2018

Pick 167 went from Vikings to Jets to Vikings. Cue the Benny Hill music.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

The #Jets' pick at 167 in Round 5: Nobody. They traded back again.

A TE that can block and catch.

#Jets were going to have eight picks in this draft. Traded two away (the second rounders). They've made three picks so far. They have four left. So that makes (drum roll) … seven.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

#Jets trade back in Round 5, sending 157 to Vikings for 167 and 225. Jets are now at 225 and 235 in Round 7.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

Jets traded back with Vikings to 167 and picked up the 225th pick #nyj

NFL Draft 2018: Jets draft TE Chris Herndon in Round 4 | What it means for Jordan Leggett https://t.co/AeSasGfWTK

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

Herndon injured his knee in Miami's season-finale at PITT and had surgery to fix his MCL. Had 86 receptions during his career for 1,048 yards and 7 receiving TDs. #Jets #NFLDraft

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

Herndon is 6-4, 253, and a very good receiver. He's also coming off knee surgery. https://t.co/MSo7TDMQAM

#Jets take Miami TE Chris Herndon in the fourth round. Their top tight end was Jordan Leggett, who didn't play last year as a rookie.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) April 28, 2018

The #Jets get Day 3 of the #NFLDraft underway with a 4th-round selection of @univmiami TE Chris Herndon. Started 11 games last season, had 40 receptions for 477 yards and 4 TDs.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) April 28, 2018

In Round 4, the Jets still need an edge rusher. Florida State LB Josh Sweat could be an option here. Or they .could go with a guard like Oregon’s Tyrell Crosby or a TE like Stanford’s Dalton Schultz.
