The New York Jets have a chance to land one of the biggest deals of the 2023 offseason.

kevin out soccer boys played around with Pro Football Focus’ mock draft simulator and executed a blockbuster trade.

Chicago Bears received: a 2023 first-round pick (No. 13 overall), 2023 second-round pick (No. 44 overall), 2023 third-round pick (No. 76 overall), 2024 first-round pick, 2024 second-round pick, a 2024 third-round pick and a first-round pick in 2025

New York Jets received: No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft

Admittedly, this would be a wild amount of tips to give up if you were the Jets.

You would pool seven draft picks, three of which are first-rounders, for a single unproven commodity.

According to the NFL Draft Value Chart, that would be a massive overpayment.

The overall pick of the #1 bears is worth 3,000 points. That combination of Jets picks would be worth over 4,465 points.

Not every NFL team follows the value chart exactly, but it’s often used as a general guideline for draft trades.

According to latest Bovada Oddsthe Jets are among favorites to “actually hit the No. 1 overall.”

The Jets own +950 odds, which are the sixth best odds available.

Since 2000, the Jets have selected 14 quarterbacks in the NFL draft.

For the most part, the majority of these choices didn’t work. Recently, the Jets have swung and missed with a top-three pick at quarterback twice in the last five years.

Insanity keeps doing the same thing and expecting different results.

However, both are head coaches Robert Saleh and Woody Johnson were very transparent this week that the team plans to be ultra-aggressive at the quarterback position.

They didn’t necessarily specify if that would be in free agency or the upcoming NFL draft.

If the Jets traded, they likely would do so to try and select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young.

I raised the possibility of a trade between Jets and Bears involving the #1 GC with PFF’s Trevor Sikkema on my podcast.

“I didn’t even consider that the Jets could literally go up to No. 1 overall until you just said that. In my head I was like, no, they’re going to sign a veteran, their roster is ready to go, and then I’m going to sit here and think about it. Wait a minute. I mean Bryce Young with the Jets, it’s huge. I would actually like that.

Well, ultimately I don’t think it’s going to happen. The problem with New York at No. 1 is the Indianapolis Colts at No. 4, the Las Vegas Raiders at No. 7, and the Carolina Panthers at No. 9. Those are three teams that will push up the price with an earlier pick in the first round of this year’s draft.

For the Jets to climb from 13th to 1st, it will cost them about three first-round picks. I just don’t think Joe Douglas will.”

They didn’t necessarily specify if that would be in free agency or the upcoming NFL draft.
