4 wide receivers the NY Jets can trade for before the 2023 NFL Draft

3. The NY Jets could trade for Jerry Jeudy
The second Broncos wide receiver that Rosenblatt suggests the Jets could trade for is Jerry Jeudy. Like Sutton, Jeudy has found himself the subject of trade rumors this offseason.
And, also like Sutton, the Broncos' high asking price has made it very difficult for any trade talks to gain traction.
A first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jeudy is coming off his best season, in which he hauled in 67 catches for 972 yards and six touchdowns. There's reason to believe he's only scratching the surface of his potential too.
The issue, once again, has been the Broncos' insistence on receiving a first or second-round pick in return. NFL teams just aren't willing to meet their valuation, even with Jeudy still on his rookie contract.
That said, multiple NFL executives reportedly believe that Jeudy could be traded closer to the draft if the Broncos are willing to lower their asking price. The biggest reason for this? The Broncos need draft picks.
Denver isn't slated to pick until pick No. 67 in this year's draft as a result of the Russell Wilson trade. Trading Jeudy would be one way to recoup some draft capital.
It's unlikely the Jets would consider giving up a first or second-round pick for Jeudy, but if that asking price comes down closer to a third or fourth-round pick, the team might just consider it.
