In this scenario, JJ McCarthy is available at ten, causing the Broncos to jump up two spots to get their franchise quarterback. The Jets would part ways with the 10th overall pick in exchange for the 12th overall pick and the 76th overall pick. The draft value chart has the Jets giving up 1300 points while receiving 1410 points.

In this scenario, both Rome Odunze and Brock Bowers were still available at 12, allowing the Jets to pick between either weapon. The 76th pick allows the Jets to select either a tight end or a receiver with Ja'Tavion Sanders and Jermaine Burton ranking as the best at the position available.

This is easily the best-case scenario for New York and could be the most likely scenario we see unfold on Draft Day. This works best for the Jets as they'd definitely still have the chance to draft Brock Bowers while in most cases Rome Odunze could be there as well.

The Jets are looking to add draft capital but, they still need to add impact playmakers. Being able to plug either Rome Odunze or Brock Bowers into this Jets offense makes the group far scarier for opposing defenses. A receiving core of Mike Williams, Garrett Wilson, and Rome Odunze could arguably be the best trio Aaron Rodgers has had in his entire career.
