The New York Jets pull off a trade to begin their night.  Without a second-round pick, the Jets trade the No. 8 overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for the No. 15 and No. 46 overall picks in the 2024 NFL Draft. 

At No. 15, the Jets select perhaps the second-best wide receiver behind Marvin Harrison Jr. in LSU standout Malik Nabers

At 6-0 ft, 200 pounds, Nabers is an explosive wide receiver who would be an instant deep threat for Rodgers and give Jets fan a player they can be excited about in that offense.  Described as a quick route-runner who can create yards after the catch, the LSU standout is an athletic force who the Jets can use as either an X receiver or Z receiver given the matchups.

Place him on the field alongside Garrett Wilson and Allen Lazard and the Jets would give Rodgers a nice trio of receivers to work with.  Even if the team makes a splash in the offseason and target Davante Adams, they should still draft one of the talented wide receivers who will be available when their pick is up. 

Again, if not for Harrison Jr., Nabers would be considered by some as the best receiver in the draft.  In 2023, the LSU star has 86 catches for 1,546 yards and 14 touchdowns.  Put him on the field with a quarterback like Rodgers and he should flourish in the NFL.
