Jets Trade up to 14, Select Alijah Vera-Tucker


Recommended Posts

In somewhat of a surprise move, Jets GM Joe Douglas moved up from 23rd to 14th overall in the first round by giving up a huge haul of picks.

The #Jets traded No. 23, No. 66 and No. 86 for No. 14 and No. 143, sources tell @TheAthletic

Douglas parted with 3 premium picks in giving up picks 23, 66 and 86 to move up and grab offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker.  The Jets also received pick number 143 from the Minnesota Vikings in the deal.  Vera-Tucker gives the Jets a potentially elite interior offensive lineman who also has the ability to play offensive tackle at some point down the road.

After taking Zach Wilson with the second overall pick, Douglas is looking to avoid repeating the mistakes of those before him who failed to protect former first-round pick Sam Darnold.

They did not give up three premium picks. They swapped ones.

Would you guys have preferred  giving up the panther 2nd next year or 66 this year?  I was hoping one of the picks would be next year.  That being said, great trade.  Douglas said they had this lined up

Next years draft is a LOT deeper, by a huge factor, with a lot of the college returnees due to covid. I'm very happy to keep next years pick/s. 

Good point

Listen, giving up the 2 3rds is tough, but they clearly got the guy, at a need position, that they had targeted all along.. can,t be disappointed with that. Unless they love a player at 34, its a great spot for a trade down, likely for a late second in this draft, as well as another 2nd next yr...imagine 2 1’s and 3 2’s next year to continue the rebuild..

2 thirds are a risk not worth taking if you can get your guy..

Like the pick. Best guard prospect in the draft. JD knows what he's doing.

This is why I am so excited. Guard has been the weakest position on the line (and one of the weakest positions on the entire team) for years.
