Jets have more NFL Draft 2020 picks than initially thought
The Jets have more draft picks than we thought.
It had been assumed and reported the Jets only had seven picks in April’s draft, but Gang Green actually has eight.
The discrepancy came because of the team’s trade for Nate Hairston in August. In that trade, the Jets sent a conditional sixth-round pick to the Colts. The conditions were not met, so the pick was returned to the Jets.
The Jets now have two picks in the sixth round, as well as two picks in the third round. They have no seventh-round picks and one choice in the first, second, fourth and fifth rounds.
This sixth-round pick is the one the Jets originally acquired in the trade with the Chiefs last May for linebacker Darron Lee.
Jets general manager Joe Douglas and the rest of the Jets front office and coaching staff will be in Indianapolis next week for the Scouting Combine, evaluating draft prospects. It turns out they have one more pick than we knew about.
