DraftPicks-16x9 3

The Jets made a trade Wednesday, acquiring RT Morgan Moses and a fourth-round pick (No. 134) from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fourth-round pick (No. 112) and a sixth-rounder (No. 218). As a result, barring any further trades, the Jets will have seven picks in this year's 257-player Draft set for April 25-27 in Detroit.

Here is a review of the eight selections the Jets hold at the moment:

Round 1 – 10th overall
The Green & White have selected 10th three times in their history highlighted by the additions of Wisconsin WR Al Toon, a Ring of Honor member, in 1985 and Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson, the 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year, two years ago.

Round 3 – 72nd overall
Without a second-round pick, the Jets won't pick again after the first round until early in round three. The team has selected 72nd twice since 2010. In 2018, the Green & White picked DT Nathan Shepherd from Fort Hays State, and in 2013, they selected Kent State G Brian Winters.

Round 4 – 111th overall & 134th overall (via BAL)
The Jets have a busy Day 3, starting with making their own pick in the fourth round (No. 110 overall).

As a part of Wednesday's trade, the Jets swapped Denver's fourth-round pick (No. 113), which was acquired by New York via trade for DE Jacob Martin, for Baltimore's fourth round selection (No. 135). The Jets will pick 135th overall, which they haven't done since 1998.

Round 6 – 185th overall
The National Football League awarded the Green & White three compensatory picks following the season including pick No. 218 in the sixth round. The Jets sent that pick to the Ravens in Wednesday's trade giving them only one selection in the sixth round (No. 185).

Round 7 – 256th overall & 257th overall
The Jets will make the final two picks in the draft – both compensatory selections. The only other time the Jets had the last pick in the draft was 1969 when they picked DT Fred Zirkle out of Duke. In 2022, the 49ers took Iowa State QB Brock Purdy with the "Mr. Irrelevant" selection which is the moniker given to the last pick of the draft.
