Reuter proposes a Jets trade-up for pass rusher Dan Leberfeld

Draft analyst Chad Reuter, of NFL Draft Scout (CBS), throws out this trade scenario for the Jets on Day One of the draft –

“New York Jets (#30) trade up for OLB Jabaal Sheard

“Potential trade partner: Philadelphia (#23) or Baltimore (#26)
Possible price: Third-round pick, possibly with a late-round sweetener

“Sheard’s stock is on the rise, and he would fit in some 4-3 schemes in addition to projecting to a strong, relentless 3-4 rush linebacker. If fellow 3-4 teams New England (#17) and San Diego (#18) don’t snap him up, Rex Ryan and company would trade a third-round selection along with another late pick to make sure the Saints (#24), Falcons (#27) or Patriots (#28) don’t put Sheard’s name on their cards.”
