New York Jets Clinch Blockbuster Trade With Colts to Get No. 3 Draft Pick
MOVING ON UP
The New York Jets climbed three spots in the 2018 NFL draft on Saturday to become No. 3 overall after a clever trade with the Indianapolis Colts. As part of a blockbuster deal, they sent the Colts their first round-pick, No. 6 overall, as well as their two second-round picks—No. 37 and No. 49 overall—this year. They also agreed to send their second-round pick in 2019. With the move, the Jets have ensured they will get one of the top-rated quarterbacks available, with USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen, and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield all in the running. The other New York team, the Giants, will get the No. 2 pick of the draft season, giving New York football fans plenty to look forward to in the months ahead.
