Marcus Mariota could be the target of the Jets….

The New York Jets might be interested in trading up, but for who?  Could the Jets be looking to land Marcus Mariota?  When their GM was asked about moving up in the draft, he said the Jets would in fact call every team in front of him to gauge interest. 

“We’re going to reach out to every team ahead of us and gauge the value of what they’re looking for in compensation to move up in the draft,” he said. “That doesn’t mean we’re actually trying to go up necessarily and get a player but you hear what the market value is basically, and then what you do is see what unfolds with the first few picks and who is available. We’ll have that discussion when we get to the draft — if we want to move up in the draft.

“Philosophically, I’m not opposed to moving up in the draft to get a player if you feel if a player is going to be an extremely good player. … I would personally want to (acquire more talent).”
