The New York Jets made a deal with the Seattle Seahawks to move up in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft.

CBSSports.com reported the trade on Twitter:

RT @EyeOnNFL: Seahawks have traded their pick (#43), the Jets are now on the clock...

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the terms of the trade:

To go up four spots in second round, Jets gave up their second, fifth and seventh-round picks. Jets can take their choice of WRs.

With the 43rd overall pick, the Jets did indeed end up taking a wide receiver, drafting Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill.

Hill was one of the fastest receivers at the NFL combine, running the 40-yard dash in the 4.3-second range. He's also tall for a speedster. He'll be a home run threat for Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.
