As the New York Jets prepare for the bulk of their 2018 NFL Draft picks, here’s their official draft order heading into this afternoon.
Besides their huge selection with the No. 3 overall pick in quarterback Sam Darnold, the New York Jets are ready to make the bulk of their draft picks this afternoon. General manager Mike Maccagnan is ready to finalize his 2018 NFL Draft class with more players that should be able to provide quality depth and hopefully, be hidden gems that pan out well.
As of right now, the Jets have four picks left in this year’s draft. They already have made two selections with Darnold in Round 1 and defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd in Round 3. Ideally, with at least one pick in each round, Maccagnan is likely to make some trades to acquire even more picks to work with this year and for next year’s draft.
There have been rumors of the Jets shopping around some of their current players, with quarterback Bryce Petty being one of them. If the Jets were to trade Petty for a late-round draft pick or even someone like running back Bilal Powell who holds decent trade value, they could add more to their arsenal.

All eyes are now on Maccagnan to address some more area of needs on the Jets roster. From their offensive line, pass rush, and even adding some offensive playmakers, look for the Jets to add an offensive guard, defensive end, linebacker, or even one more running back to the mix.
Since the Jets are rebuilding for a brighter future, it’s important that Maccagnan continue to find high-quality players that fit the overall culture that is being built within the organization. It’s not easy and patience will be needed as the Jets work out the kinks but for the most part, something special is indeed brewing at One Jets Drive.
