Joe Douglas

With the NFL draft now fewer than three weeks away, rumors are sure to start swirling and there was one out of Atlanta today regarding a possible trade down for Joe Douglas and the Jets.

It appears they are at least discussing moving up. We just recorded a new podcast today in which our scout again says ATL has spoken with the Jets about moving up to 11, but the feeling is they may try to go higher than that. https://t.co/s1oFPWmE6V

Atlanta sports radio reporter Paul Crane of 92.9 The Game, claims that the Falcons, who are looking to move up from the 16th overall spot, have had some discussion with the Jets.  Crane also adds that Atlanta could be looking to move up higher than that.

If the Jets were to move down to the sixteenth pick, it could still leave them in position to grab a left tackle in Houston’s Josh Jones while adding draft capital.

The post Report: Jets Talking to Falcons About Trade Down appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

I assume this would happen on draft day if it does. So if DL Brown is sitting there at #11 then we could likely get some good draft picks back and probably still get OT Jones. That would be good. 

Or, since they want a DL that bad would they take QW for their #16 and their 2nd rounder this year, then we keep our #11?. Since our DL has done well I would make that trade right now. Heck, we could then get one of the best WR Prospects and an LT in round 1 and have 2nd and 3rd rounders that would allow us to take another OT/WR/CB/Edge. There were trade offers for QW this past year but we didn't want to do it since he was a 3rd overall pick.

I love the idea but the dead cap hit for Quinnen is brutal. We actually lose an additional $9m in cap space this year if we trade Quinnen. Not to mention we probably lose value from the gun situation. 

I would still make this move if possible though.

 

#11 - 1,250 points

#16 - 1,000 points - they'd have to throw in a 3rd and 4th to balance it out or perhaps we can throw in a pick that pushes the value higher and receive a 2nd round pick instead.

I'm too jaded to believe we have a GM that can finally work the phone on draft day to move down when it matters. Sad part is I'm 34. I know Tanny didn't know how to trade down, Idizik used his 50 picks to fuel the largest dumpster fire in history and Mac patted himself on the back when Mel Kipers top defensive player fell to him every year. We lucked into Darnold with a pre draft trade. I don't remember all Bradway's BS off the top of my head

Atlanta is in DIRE need of an Dline & Edge Rusher. The Falcons need defense to compliment their offense against the Saints & now Brady is in the same division. Could they be targeting, Patrick Queen or Kinlaw? They could be there at 11 based on a lot of mock drafts. 

Right outside of the top 10. I truly believe if the opportunity arises JD would prefer to move back. 16 is a great spot in this draft. 

Of course I believe if Wirfs, Wills, or Becton are there we're taking our 10 year LT.

Hopefully they are talking to lots of teams about moving down.  I would, possibly a couple of times.  

I'm sure they are. Need to have an idea in advance of who's willing to move, and what they'd be looking for if they do. That's how they can put a trade together in ten minutes when it counts.

Just did a mock w/this trade. My preference is one of the big tackles early, but in this spot they were all gone.

ATL

Received:

  • Pick 11 - C.J. Henderson
  • Pick 191 - Broderick Washington Jr.
NYJ

Received:

  • Pick 16 - Henry Ruggs III
  • Pick 78 - Tyler Biadasz
  • Pick 119 - Kenny Willekes

What about at 48? No OL worth taking there? I’ll go mental if they take two WRs and Biadasz

Love this mock, except for ruggs. Not a ruggs fan, would prefer Justin Jefferson.

I'm a big advocate of OL at 11 but if we traded back to 16 and somehow got Lamb/Juedy/Jefferson and then had a draft like the one you had I'd be happy. I would take another OL with the round 6 or 7 pick though. Get real beefy up front

Little different take here from the Falcon's perspective. The article mentioned that they may want to get even higher than 11. My guess is it's either for Simmons, if he was falling, but more likely for either a WR( Julio not getting any younger) or a QB that they love as Ryan's replacement.

I do think JD wants more picks.  Moving Down 5 spots isn’t bad.  I think we can still get a bigtime WR there or a OL(although not one of the top ones).  I’m all for more picks

Is josh jones + 3rd and 4th rounder better than Thomas?  Perhaps.  But if the jets are serious about doing this, it’s clear their OT rankings are not tier 1 way above the rest. 

I think it's very possible that the Jets have Josh Jones higher on their board than Thomas, and that would be their likely target at #16. I'd expect the top three WRs to be off the board there. 

Armed with three third rounders, I'd then like to see the Jets use one to trade their second up to the cusp of the first and second rounds to take their top WR there.

Lets atleast give him the opportunity to show that he does. Douglas has yet to even manage a draft. 

I think everybody understands that.  But so far it looks like he has a clue. Nothing wrong with having some optimism

I doubt that a team with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are trading up for a wide receiver.
