Joe Douglas just played the draft game the way you should Dan Leberfeld

It surprised some that Jets GM Joe Douglas passed up on cornerbacks Jaylon Johnson and Trevon Diggs, and traded back in the second round.

The Jets traded their original second-round pick, 48th overall, to the Seattle Seahawks for a second-round pick (59 overall) and pick 101.

But then with the 59th pick, the Jets landed Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims, who was considered a first-round talent by some.

And while CB is a big need for the Jets, so is receiver.

So to trade back in the second round, get an extra pick, and then land a player with a late-first grade, is an example of slick draft gamesmanship by Douglas.
