I'm not in favor of trading up unless we trade up high which would assuredly mean we have to give up next years #1. The value of players in this draft levels off a bit and I don't see a must have guy there at 22 for us, we would have to give up our 3rd plus to move up. One also can't ignore the salary aspect of things. The Jets were pinching pennies last year.
I don't think we have the ammo (no 2nd rounder) to move up this year and I would be surprised if any of the 'too good to pass up' guys are there at 22 or so. The good thing is that our front office has shown to be light on their feet and can make deals quickly if they see the opportunity. The Jets have not been a trade down kind of team but if the draft falls in a certain way and the top olb and DE's are gone and we are faced with QB's, OL and such I do hope they actually trade down.
