NY Jets trade 2023 fourth and 2023 fifth-round pick for Derek Carr

The Raiders might want a third-round pick, but their lack of leverage in the situation, combined with Carr's no-trade clause, might prevent them from receiving maximum value.

After all, Carr has no obligation to the Raiders. He has no reason to accept a trade to any destination that he doesn't want. That could significantly decrease the value the Raiders receive in return.

Perhaps Carr's preferred destination is the Jets. Maybe the Jets come calling with an offer and are willing to make room for Carr's contract. They likely wouldn't need to offer a third-round pick.

In this scenario, the Jets send two Day 3 picks, fourth and fifth-round selections, to the Raiders in exchange for Carr. Using Jimmy Johnson's trade value chart, the value of those two picks roughly equates to a late third-round pick.

Essentially, instead of the Jets forfeiting their own third-round pick (No. 74 overall), they send the equivalent of the 98th overall pick to the Raiders. Not what Las Vegas prefers, but they may not have a choice.

This could still benefit the Raiders, however. Las Vegas might be looking to stockpile picks, as opposed to simply trading Carr for one selection. That was the strategy the Kansas City Chiefs employed last offseason.

The Jets originally offered the No. 10 overall pick in last year's draft to the Chiefs for Tyreek Hill, but they declined. The Chiefs wanted multiple picks in return, so they eventually agreed to a deal that included both Jets' second-round picks.

Ultimately, the Raiders might not get the value they're looking for, but this is still a reasonable trade package for both sides. Whether the Jets or another team offers this proposal, I can definitely see the Raiders accepting.
