Indianapolis Colts ready to dominate the 2018 NFL Draft

  • The New York Jets will pick third in the NFL draft after trading with the Indianapolis

Who gets picked where has been vastly different for multiple draft analysts.

The immediate reaction to the trade is that the Jets will likely take a quarterback with the third overall pick.

Trading this guy might be remembered as one of the best trades in franchise history if it results in getting a franchise quarterback. The Jets GM, Mike Maccagnan, managed to hold onto his 2019 first rounder, but was forced to surrender three second-round picks.

Now, the New York Jets have entered themselves into the discussion.

In particular, who's most likely to fall to the Chicago Bears at No. 8 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft? Just previous year, the Bears gave up four draft picks (one first round pick, two third round picks, and a fourth round pick) to move up from the third to the second overall pick in the draft. By moving into the third pick, the Jets must believe there are three franchise QBs in this draft. With Cousins off the table, the Jets elected to sign Teddy Bridgewater and then re-sign Josh McCown. The Browns would not trade down if they don't take a quarterback first.

"The truth? Most of these quarterbacks I've only spent 15 minutes with", Beane told King. They could go Barkley if Cleveland passes on him or they could go defensive end or just about any other direction. They no longer have to worry about another quarterback needy team (of which there are many) leapfrogging them.




The Rams, among the busiest teams in the offseason, announced late Friday that they re-signed center John Sullivan to a two-year deal.

There would be no point in drafting a starter-ready quarterback like Sam Darnold and benching him.

For the Colts, they now have nine picks overall and appear to be in a rebuilding phase after going 4-12 and missing the playoffs for the third straight year. Indianapolis still might be able to land the promising pass rusher at No. 6, especially if three or more quarterbacks are taken in the first five spots. And knowing how things look when quarterbacks start coming off the board, they're going to go fast.

The Buffalo Bills might be the team to do business with, but general manager Brandon Beane has a few tasks on his mind before he considers offering the mother-load to the Giants and Dave Gettleman. If Ballard makes the right picks, he should have four to five players who can at least make solid contributions to his team this season.

One other interesting Bills-related note from King's Monday Morning Quarterback column: The team was reportedly "seriously interested" in Jets quarterback Josh McCown before he opted to re-sign in NY.

Woodhead rushed for 15 touchdowns and reeled in 17 scoring receptions to go along with 4,936 total yards (2,238 rushing, 2,698 receiving) during his nine National Football League seasons with the New York Jets, New England Patriots, the then-San Diego Chargers and the Baltimore Ravens. It also removes the Jets from having to "settle" for Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma).
