Jets Looking To Move Up In First Round

In a one-on-one interview with ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, general manager Mike Tannenbaum said the New York Jets are looking to move up in the first round from the No. 17 pick. Tannenbaum said the Jets could be moving for any number of players. “We are not fixated on Mark Sanchez,” Tannenbaum said of the USC quarterback. But league sources say the Jets are competing with the Washington Redskins for Sanchez. The Redskins, at No. 12, are in a better position to move up to No. 4 to take Sanchez. The Jets are hoping that Sanchez falls further, perhaps to No. 8. They have already discussed a possible swap with the Jaguars for their pick.
