Draft day never goes how it is planned out on mock drafts. With months (and this year an extra two weeks) to devise strategies, general managers will look under every rock for a means to acquire the players they covet in the draft.
New York Jets GM John Idzik has proven that he is not afraid to think outside the box to acquire players, whether it be through trading a star player (Darrelle Revis) or acquiring overlooked talent from other rosters (Chris Ivory). With a dozen picks at their disposal, Idzik and the Jets have as much flexibility as any team in the NFL.
At the same time, because of their abundance of needs, the Jets will need to get creative to acquire the specific players they need to fill their roster.
Here are some creative moves the Jets can make to get the most out of this year's draft.
