It wasn’t until a few days ago that anyone thought Baker Mayfield had a chance to go No. 1 overall. The Browns kept the choice close to their vest until word leaked that they had narrowed it to the Oklahoma quarterback and Wyoming’s Josh Allen.

For the Jets, talk about the 2018 draft began Authentic Mike Alstott Jersey before the 2017 draft. Once Maccagnan began cutting veteran players, it became clear the Jets were making 2017 all about clearing the deck for 2018.
The roster moves led to talk of tanking and of Suck for Sam when Darnold was viewed as the consensus No. 1 player. The Jets went 5-11, and that was viewed as a failure by some fans, who wanted the No. 1 pick. Instead, the Jets played their way into the No. 6 pick. Then, on March 17, Maccagnan made his move, trading away three second-round picks over the next two years to the Colts to move up to No. 3.
Now, whom are the Jets taking?
Ballard also stressed that Luck is not pressing to get back in the same way he did before missing all of last season and that the team is confident in his return to action. He further illustrated that by pointing to the trade with the Jets that moved the Colts from No. 3 to No. 6 in the first round and saying he thinks that shows they are very confident about the quarterback’s progress.
Ballard said he’s also open to moving further down the draft board. After initially feeling like he wouldn’t want to fall out of the Top 10, Ballard said that he’s more willing to do so because the team has identified eight non-quarterbacks they believe are premium players at the top of the draft.
A trade down that nets one of them and more picks to fill out a thin roster would work well, but the benefits may be harder to see on the field if the Colts’ bet on Luck goes the other way again this year.
