The official 2020 NFL Draft order has finally been revealed by the league. Here are the full selections and pick order for the NY Jets.
On Wednesday, March 11 the 2020 NFL Draft order was finally revealed by the league. As expected the NY Jets will have eight selections in the upcoming draft.
Also earlier this week the NFL announced the full details on the compensatory selections and once again the Jets were left empty-handed. Per the team, this is “the third straight year and fifth time in the last six years that the Jets received no compensatories.”
Here are the full details on the team’s 2020 NFL Draft selections:
First-round pick: No. 11 overall (Jets own selection)
Second-round pick: No. 48 overall (Jets own selection)
Third-round pick: No. 68 overall (originally the NY Giants via the Leonard Williams trade)
Third-round pick: No. 79 overall (Jets own selection)
Fourth-round pick: No. 120 overall (Jets own selection)
Fifth-round pick: No. 158 overall (Jets own selection)
Sixth-round pick: No. 191 overall (Jets own selection)
Sixth-round pick: No. 211 overall (originally the Kansas City Chiefs via the Darron Lee trade)
For those curious, the NY Jets did trade one of their sixth-round choices (No. 211 overall) to the Indianapolis Colts for veteran cornerback Nate Hairston last season. Although according to multiple reports the conditions of the deal were never met so the pick returned to the green and white.
The Jets also traded away its original seventh-round pick (225th overall) to the Baltimore Ravens prior to the 2019 season in exchange for veteran guard Alex Lewis.
This means that the NY Jets will have four picks in the top-80 which is the highest quartet of picks the team has had since 2013 when they had four picks in the top-72.
Gang Green has eight selections in the 2020 NFL Draft, that’s the most picks they’ve had in a single draft since 2017 when they also possessed eight draft picks. Since 2007 the green and white have only had three draft classes (not including 2020) with eight or more selections. The others were 2017 (eight), 2014 (The Idzik 12), and 2012 (8).
