New York Jets’ 2022 draft picks continue to improve
The ball continues to bounce the New York Jets‘ way when it comes to the fortunes of their 2022 draft picks.
While the Seattle Seahawks (3-5) had a week off, the Carolina Panthers (4-5) dropped their fourth game in five weeks with a 24-6 home loss at the hands of the New England Patriots (5-4). Former Jets quarterback Sam Darnold tossed three interceptions in the defeat.
New York owns Carolina’s second-round pick in the 2022 draft courtesy of the trade that sent Darnold down south. The Jets also have the Panthers’ fourth-round pick.
With the defeat, the Panthers’ second-rounder has risen to the No. 46 overall slot, sitting at No. 14 in the round. The fourth-round selection sits at No. 116 overall.
The Jets’ 45-30 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night dropped them to 2-6. New York’s first-round pick is currently situated in the No. 4 overall slot.
Seattle’s first-round pick that is owed to the Jets is currently sitting at No. 10 as of Sunday afternoon. It will drop to No. 11 if the Bears lose to the Steelers on Monday night, while it will remain at No. 10 if the Bears win.
As an added bonus, the Minnesota Vikings fell to 3-5 with a loss to the Ravens. New York owns Minnesota’s fourth-round pick courtesy of the Chris Herndon trade, so every Vikings loss improves the value of that selection by a smidgen.
Here is a look at the current positioning of the Jets’ nine picks in the 2022 NFL draft based on the league standings as of Monday, Nov. 8:
- Round 1, Pick 4
- Round 1, Pick 10 (via Seattle)
- Round 2, Pick 38
- Round 2, Pick 46 (via Carolina)
- Round 3, Pick 69
- Round 4, Pick 111 (via Minnesota)
- Round 4, Pick 116 (via Carolina)
- Round 5, Pick 148
- Round 5, Pick 163 (via Pittsburgh)
Joe Douglas is well equipped to restock the cupboard with more young talent. He is currently poised to have two picks in the top-10, four in the top-50, and five in the top-70.
