NFL Draft Rumors 2018: Jets Could Trade Up For QB

NFL Draft season is about to kick into full swing with the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine just around the corner.

As it heats up, the rumor mill will be churning with reports and speculation about what teams around will league will be doing with their top picks in the draft.

One team picking in the top ten of this year’s draft, the New York Jets, is already drumming up some speculation.

During an appearance on ESPN 98.7, Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan acknowledged his team is open to trading up in the draft in order to get a better pick and player they are targeting.

It is believed that player would be one of the top quarterbacks available.

“The simple answer to that question is yes,” Maccagnan said, via ESPN.com. “If that was a player we felt strong about, we would have no qualms of potentially trying to go up and get him.”

The top quarterbacks available in this year’s draft are UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold of USC, and Wyoming’s Josh Allen.

With the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants combining to hold three of the five picks ahead of the Jets, a trade up may have to happen if they hope to upgrade under center moving forward.

The 2018 NFL Draft takes place at AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington, Texas from April 26-28.
