Just wanted to get a sense when/if everyone believed the #2 pick will be traded. 

I’m so confused as to what we will do, way to many options out there. But I keep going back to “what if Jacksonville does the unthinkable and take Wilson over Lawrence”?

If that happens, can you risk trading the #2 prior to the draft? I want Watson, but would you have buyer’s remorse if you ended up passing on Lawrence plus all the draft picks we have to give up to get Watson?

Buyers remorse in getting a top of the NFL QB because you missed out on drafting a QB who in your wildest dream becomes a top of the NFL QB?  

No, Watson is a given, Lawrence isnt

I have a feeling JD won’t get enough for the 2nd pick to trade it. Too many question marks surrounding the other QB prospects. 

I'm starting to believe he may get more calls for the pick by teams that want Sewell than any of the QB's.

I don't believe we are trading the #2 pick. I am convinced we are taking a QB and I have a feeling it will be Fields. 

HOWEVER, if we do trade out of #2, it will most likely be during the draft...with the announcement coming while we are on the clock. Only wild card is if we end up trading for Watson and it seems more and more like that's not happening, which is a bummer.

I believe JD will make a last best “take it or leave it” offer to Houston prior to FA. If Houston balks, it’s on to trading Darnold during FA period and Draft night where he will make #2 available and if value does not come close to selection, he resets the QB clock.

Highly doubt Joe Douglas will trade the #2 pick and it will get increasingly harder with things like that Chris Sims  scouting report. Hell Chris is already doing the NYC media circuit promoting and selling Zach Wilson to the fanbase. 
 

Add in Denzel Mims, Perriman, Jamal Adams and the Mark Sanchez comments and the emphasis on how close he is with Darnold and imo the writing is on the wall

Listen, I agree. Obviously I won’t be sad about getting Watson. There will be zero buyer’s remorse from a talent perspective. I’m talking value perspective since I believe, down the line (maybe in a couple years), Trevor will be just as good (if not better) than Watson.

Watson, who is a sure thing right now, is not a hard sell for me either...

Look at all the top rated QBs over the years, most dont pan out.  I take the given every time, a 25 year old star, its not even debatable to me.  Trevor could become a star or not.  Watson is a star

You actually believe that JD will draft a QB or wont based on Simms comments to the media and what a Mark Sanchez has to say as opposed to what he thinks is the right move to make?

If true he needs to be fired.  Thankfully theres no chance that JD drafts off of what talking heads have to say

Unless Douglas uses the 2nd pick in a trade we won’t know what he’s going to do with it until draft night.  And if there’s a trade we won’t know until sometime he’s had the chance to evaluate the QB and player prospects.  For all we know he’s already made an offer for Watson.

Every day that passes without a trade is a day closer to the Jets picking Zach Wilson. I expect if a trade happens it will be before the draft, not the day of (or on the clock)

The Jets are not going to officially trade the pick until jax officially takes Lawrence.

They will have the parameters of any deal worked out before the draft but will tell the team they are dealing with that it does not go through until Jax turns in the card.

There is really no reason for the jets to make the move until after pick #1.

When they're on the clock.  They aren't taking the twink and the bounty of picks JD will get for moving back a few spots will be too much to resist.

There’s 0% chance we are trading that pick

 Carolina and Denver are strong candidates for trading up with us


Denver could offer us the 9 pick, Von Miller and more draft picks

Only way this happens is if jets have 3 qbs valued the same. Which is doubtful

It’s a shame you didn’t select the option to see how folks voted. See if you can go back and allow please. I’m curious who voted for keep the #2.

There's no reason for them to wait until they're on the clock, either. There's no mystery surrounding the #1 pick; it's going to be Trevor Lawrence. Teams will negotiate with JD with their favorite non-Lawrence prospect in mind. Douglas will have a lot of offers for the pick, and plenty of time to massage those offers and pick his favorite. If he wants to get fancy and move down more than once, he'll definitely want to have that first trade in the books so that he can start preliminary negotiations to trade down from his new spot (where waiting until he's on the clock would likely be the move). 

But nothing's going to happen until all these QBs finish up their pro days at the end of March. If he's going to move the pick, I'd expect it to happen in the first few weeks of April.

There is absolutely no reason to rush this.  If someone blows JD away with an offer, sure, but the only reason I can see for being anxious to see Sam traded early is to remove one perceived obstacle from the dream of the Jets drafting Zach Wilson who has achieved a messiah-like reputation on this board.  It feels like anything that seems to interfere with that outcome, including not trading Darnold early for no good reason, is a problem.  It's not.  

If there is a solid offer and it fits with JD's plan, he'll move Sam.  Similarly, if there's an incredible offer for the #2 pick, I would expect that to be in play as well.  If someone trades up for the #2 pick and drafts Fields, I will be waiting for heads to explode.
