The Jets enter Friday with just one pick.

Joe Douglas traded away both of his third-round picks to move up in Round 1 and take guard Alijah Vera-Tucker. That leaves the Jets with their second-round pick (No. 34 overall) and six picks on Saturday.

Douglas may look to move back from 34 and acquire some more picks. Every year, teams try to trade up to the top of the second round. If he sticks at 34, he could draft versatile linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who was projected to be a first-round pick.

If he wants to address cornerback, the team’s biggest hole, he could take Asante Samuel Jr. or Tyson Campbell. Pass rusher is another possibility with Georgia’s Azeez Ojulari surprisingly slipping out of the first round.
