The Jets Can Erase Years of Futility at QB with the No. 3 Pick

The Indianapolis Colts have traded their 3rd overall pick in this year's draft to the New York Jets for multiple picks. USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield are considered potential top-five selections. They want to find their franchise quarterback in April.

It's likely the Jets made the trade in anticipation of taking a quarterback.

Cleveland is nearly certainly forced to take a quarterback at No. 1 overall now.

Here is where Giants general manager Dave Gettleman can have some fun.

Warriors' Kevin Durant to miss 2 weeks for rib injury
Cook scored 13 in the first quarter as the Warriors jumped out to a nice lead, but they held just a 59-57 edge at halftime. As of Friday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Kings.

He had to make a pre-emptive strike, and that's exactly what this trade is.

Prior to this trade, the Colts had just seven draft picks to use on the 2018 class.

What would that take? The team struggled on defense previous year, finishing as one of three AFC teams to allow at least 400 points on the season, while the team finished with a -141 point differential, the second-worst in the AFC and third-worst in all of football.

The Jets on Saturday announced they traded up from the sixth pick to the third pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, in a deal with the Colts. However, New York ultimately overpaid for this pick to keep the quarterback-less Buffalo Bills from taking the spot. If both players are off the board with the first two picks, the New York Jets could select Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen or Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor, Baker Mayfield.

1 worker hurt, 1 missing in Texas chemical plant explosion
The Environmental Protection Agency deployed an on-site co-ordinator to help monitor air emissions, spokesman David Gray said. The agency is responsible for investigating major chemical fires, explosions, leaks, and other accidents.

This current Jets regime whiffed on draft picks Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg and they missed out on prized free agent Kirk Cousins even though they offered more money than the Minnesota Vikings. Either of them could help the New York Jets' franchise in terms of viability. That adds up to the Broncos giving up the No. 5-overall pick, their second-round pick (40th overall, 500 points), their third-round pick (71st overall, 235 points) and their fourth-round pick (106th overall, 82 points).

In return, the Colts receive the No. 6 pick this year, along with the Nos.

So would Gettleman pull the lever on such a deal? No offense to Saquon Barkley or Quenton Nelson, who are both fantastic players. but you don't move up this aggressively for a non-QB too often.
