    If we were to trade down...

    Let's assume there is someone that other teams want at the Jets pick (9 or 13) and the Jets are not in love with that player.

    Which would you prefer:

    - Trade down in the 1st round and get a pick or picks later on in this draft?

    - Trade out of the 1st round into mid or late 2nd round and get an additional 1st round pick next year?

    I want picks in this year. This year is deeper at picks 25-75 than most. An extra year to develop, and be ready by 2015.

    I think we will have several candidates to move up to 9 with Warmack or Cooper still available. Fearing that we may take one and Tenn may take the other, Dallas, Giants, or the Bears would be good partners. Plus it's just about the right distance to get their 2nd.

    At 13 we could move doWn with SF with them looking at Vaccaro. Plus it would net us 31 and 34.

    That gives us 18, 31, 34, 39, and 48.

    Disadvantage is that we most likely miss out on the top LBs and DTs but we might get a sleeper like Brown from K ST with one of our 3 2nds.

    I might lean towards getting a 1st next year and trading down out the 1st. We would still get a pick in a value round this year and be set up a true defining draft next year with two 1sts, probably 2 thirds and our 2nd, plus most likely a number of compensatory picks. If there is a grade A player we want next year we would have ammo to go get him.

    This year. It takes time to train these guys the sooner you have them the better. This is a pretty deep draft in a lot of areas of need why not take advantage. You cant bank on loosing this year IMO.

    I'd like another 1st next year. Will need ammo to trade up and grab a QB like McCarron, Thomas or Bridgewater.

    You mean Bridgewater, Mariota, Manziel, Keeton?

    I'd want a 2nd and next year's #1 so we have ammo to trade up for a franchise QB like Bridgewater or Manzeil, or even a game changing player like Clowney in next year's draft.

    I dont think there are any players in the draft that teams would be willing to trade up for and give up a #1 next year.

    In the 6th round? lol Those guys suck. I'd take Tuel over those guys. Bridgewater I still say is buyer beware. Louisville is basically ND right now playing a bunch on no name big east teams now. It isnt hard for Teddy to look good when you play no one. When you big rivalry game is Temple there is something wrong with that. Seriously

    If they aint from Penn it doesnt matter where they are from. Always draft the QB from Pennsylvania. Or bet on the boxer from Philly.

    If we trade down out of our present places, I'd like the picks to be this year, unless the deal is insane.

    1 - 2013 is a great year for these guys to follow the learning curve as others have said.

    2 - Any picks we receive from a DEN, or ATL, or whomever is trading that far up, is likely not going to be anything better than #20 next year. This year's crop is at it's strongest between 25-75. I want as many picks in that bracket as possible.

    Bird in the hand worth two in the bush, and all that.

    Take the picks from this year unless it's a massive deal for the Jets.

    I don't mind the prospect of trading with San Francisco for its first round pick and the pick it received from Kansas for Smith.

    We cannot bank on a QB in the next draft because most of the guys mentioned have multiple years of eligibility (Manziel and Mariota have 3 years left).

    No guarantees they even come out next year. In fact, they probably don't.

    And even if they do, and they are "can't miss" prospects (Andrew Luck II) - unless we are picking at the very top of the draft, no way in hell do we convince a Jax or an Oakland to trade out so we can pick the next great QB instead of them.

    I just don't see a team that DOESN'T need a QB picking at the top of the draft.

    Would not trade out of #9 if we could get Warmack/Cooper. Would certainly listen to offers for #13. Beerfish, are you doing mock again? Was lots of fun.

    Definitely this year.
    Not sure if I would trade down from 9 or 13. I guess it depends on how the first 8 picks shake out.
    Picking up an extra 2 to move down 12-15 spots in what is considered a deep draft would more than help make up for not getting more picks from Tampa this year.

    Too late for this year. Not as much traffic on this forum as other times so it would be tough to get enough people involved.
