Jets looking to move up

By Pat Kirwan,

Following the Keyshawn Johnson trade to the Buccaneers and Thursday's deal with the 49ers, the Jets are sitting strong with picks No. 12, 13, 18 and 27. That's given them enough commodity to make a move up the draft board.

Right now the Jets are looking into possible trades with Baltimore (No. 5) and Philadelphia (No. 6). Both teams are listening to offers.

The Jets want a shot at Corey Simon, or the more likely candidate Brian Urlacher. The Jets would surrender either the 12 or 13 to package with the 27 for that opportunity.

Whether they keep the four picks or trade up to No. 5 and keep 13 and 18, it should be noted that it will cost approximately $16.8 million to sign their first-round picks and they will need $4.6 million of cap space. Presently, they have $2.2 million of space so more players will be cut.
