Jets, Colts Agree To Massive NFL Trade Involving No. 3 Pick

Speaking of that, a report from Manish Mehta of The NY Daily News now indicates that New York actually had discussions with the Cleveland Browns about moving all the way up to the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Colts made the announcement on Twitter earlier this morning.

"We went back and forth for the last four or five days, " he said.

For the Colts, who have Andrew Luck entrenched at quarterback, the move allows them to load up in the second round while still targeting an impact player at the No. 6 slot.

There was, is, talk that the Browns may select running back Saquon Barkley of Penn State with the first overall pick and then draft a quarterback at number four.

Denver has protected itself in this type of scenario, whereas the Browns, Bills, Jets, and Cardinals are all getting the quarterbacks they signed this year off the books in 2019 (though the Bills have the option to keep McCarron at a small price). One, two and three drafts on top of each other where these guys are homegrown Colts. Now, the Jets know that at least two of them will be available at No. 3. The last time the Jets had the third pick was 1981, when they took UCLA running back Freeman McNeil, who made three Pro Bowls during his 12-year National Football League career and was inducted into the team's Ring of Honor.

Saturday's move also proved another thing: The Colts are in a clear rebuilding mode after former general manager Ryan Grigson whiffed on previous drafts. Tennessee released defensive lineman Sylvester Williams after one season into a three-year deal signed a year ago.

It really feels like, right now, the Broncos are fine not taking a quarterback with the fifth overall.

The NFL draft takes place April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. "It would have to be a pretty attractive offer for us to move away from six because of the player we think we're going to get".
