The New York Jets aren’t happy with Geno Smith and it’s time for them to set their own tone with new leadership. At sixth overall, they’re all but guaranteed to miss out on the two starting caliber QBs in the 2015 NFL Draft. If either Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston slips to third overall, expect the Jets to be among the suitors who come calling.
So why is this such a good deal for the Jaguars? Those two second round picks in the 2015 draft could be used at running back and another position of need. Free safety is a major hole right now and the Jaguars should be looking at pretty much any option there. The Jets would be surrendering top of the round picks, enabling the Jaguars to not alter their plans too much.
Now, this is all reliant on Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston being available, so it could not happen at all. The way things may shake out, however, could give the Jaguars the opportunity to pick any team they want to trade with.
