When Jets traded defender Sam Darnold against the Panthers on Monday, they maintained a long trend in their first round of draft trading.
In fact, Darnold, which Jets drafted in 2018, was the sixth consecutive first-round pick they traded.
In 2017, the jets took the Jamal Adams sixth overall. Last year they traded him for the Seahawks.
In 2016, the Jets picked their 20th overall Darron Lee lineup in 2019, they traded him for the boss.
In 2015, the Jets picked Leonard Williams, the sixth overall defensive lineman in 2019, they traded him to the Giants.
In 2014, the jets were secured by Calvin Pryor 18 overall, in 2017 they traded him with the Browns.
In 2013, the Jets opted for Sheldon Richardson 13’s overall defense, in 2017 they traded him with the Seahawks.
The final first round that the Jets didn’t trade was a corner deminer, where they picked ninth overall in 2013.They cut him in 2016.
Having the Jets trade the first six round selections shows that they are not a complete bust, as the complete bust has no commercial value. But it is not ideal for the Jets that their first-round pick won’t stick long enough to sign a second.
