4 wide receivers the NY Jets can trade for before the 2023 NFL Draft
By Justin Fried
The NY Jets have almost completely reshaped their wide receiver room this offseason. From the additions of Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman to the departures of Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios, and possibly Corey Davis, the Jets' wide receiver corps in 2023 will look vastly different than it did a year ago.
The team likely still isn't done adding to the position either.
The Jets remain the favorites to sign former All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in free agency. Beckham is drawing interest from a number of teams, including the Baltimore Ravens, but the Jets appear to be the leaders in the clubhouse.
That said, Beckham's reported contract demands could make a union between the two sides tricky. What if the Jets and Beckham are unable to find a middle ground? What if he ends up signing elsewhere?
The Jets could opt to roll with a wide receiver room of Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, and Corey Davis, but it seems more likely that they're looking to make another addition.
Davis seems likely to be included in an Aaron Rodgers trade, and the duo of Lazard and Hardman isn't exactly an exciting WR2/WR3 combination. If they miss on Beckham, one option the Jets could explore is the trade market.
The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt recently suggested four wide receivers the Jets could trade for this offseason. Those are the four players we're going to be exploring in this article.
