Jets | Team looking for ammunition to trade up
Sun, 19 Mar 2006 07:26:42 -0800

Randy Lange, of the Bergen Record, reports the New York Jets are reportedly looking for ammunition, by trading DE John Abraham, to move up to the No. 2 slot in the April NFL Draft. They team wants to draft USC QB Matt Leinart.

and everyone thought Ramsey was the one, I don't think so. What would they give us for the number 2? A DT, their #4 and a third rounder. My offseason would be complete.

Ha I NEVER thought Ramsey was the one, and I've been one of the main folks in favor of a trade with the Jets. We'll essentially be getting something for nothing. I think it's a no brainer if we can get it worked out. I don't see it happening until draft day though.

RE: Re: Jets still want to trade up!

Again, kudos to Loomis. The Brees deal has totally put us in the driver's seat for the draft. With a little luck, Norm Chow will be betgging the Titans to get into a bidding war to try and get Leinart. We might find ourselves in the position where the value chart gets thrown out the window so teams can get into position to take Leinart.

RE: Re: Jets still want to trade up!

Gotta love our position in the draft!

It looks like a win win situation. Personally I am all for trading down and getting AJ Hawk, That is my wishlist!

If the Texans move the #1 and Leinhart goes 1, I can't see how we cannot take Bush if he is there though?

Draft day will be GREAT.

Agreed...if Bush is there at #2 and we don't get our socks knocked off with a trade offer, take him. He's the kind of player that you FIND a spot for on your team because he's that good.

I've thought about this scenario some too. If Bush is there, I have no idea what we do. With the big money we've put into Deuce and the signing of Bennett, it just doesn't make sense to take him.

If Bush is there, I suppose we'd be at the center of a bidding war to get him. We might be the beneficiary of a Ricky Williams kind of deal. Al Davis might give up his entire draft to take Reggie.

Definately, if Bush is there we have to take him. My mindset is that top 5 picks should be used on playmakers and on skill positions. Bush is the definition of a playmaker. However, as much as I don't like the idea of goin OL in the top 5 I'd take Brick because we have so many holes on our OL. I'd also be happy with Hawk at 4 because he can be a playmaker on defense.

We could just move Bush to wide receiver.

Other than me, who here thinks that Bush could potentially be a top tier wide receiver in the NFL. . . if he were moved to that position?
