Jets preview, Day 2: With no second-round pick, they have a long wait until their two third-round picks (68 and 93). Know this: They will explore a trade-up into Round 2. As GM Mike Maccagnan said, "If there's a player or two we feel is worth going up and chasing, we'll look into doing that." Packaging their two 3s could get them to 52, based on the trade chart. Packaging 68 and 84 (fourth round) could get them to 57. LB Darron Lee also could be used as trade bait. Needs: Edge, C and CB. Potential targets: OLB Ben Banogu, C/G Connor McGovern, CB Lonnie Johnson and C Elgton Jenkins.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan didn't get a chance to meet Quinnen Williams at the combine. Held up in another meeting, Maccagnan arrived late for Williams' 15-minute interview with team offficials. Said Maccagnan: "I was walking in and he was walking out, and everybody was raving about how well he did." The GM eventually watched a tape of the interview and later met Williams on his top-30 visit. He described Williams as "very cerebral" and "humble."

The Giants called Eli Manning as they made the selection of Daniel Jones. Eli's response after being told by Dave Gettleman he's their QB this year: "Let's go." Coach Pat Shurmur added the goal is for Eli to be their quarterback. Eli's job is to win games and keep Jones off the field.

According to our valuations of draft slots -- based on AV over replacement -- the Giants gave up a package that was worth 74% more than the No. 30 pick they received. A pricey trade up.

Dave Gettleman on why Daniel Jones at No. 6: "It's a wonderful thing when need and value match." He just thinks that Jones is the right quarterback for the Giants. "Perfect."

Giants select CB DeAndre Baker with pick No. 30. Some considered him the top corner in the draft but he likely lasted this long because some teams had concerns about his character.

Already without injured outfielders Clint Frazier, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron HIcks, the Yankees acquired veteran Cameron Maybin from the Indians for cash considerations.

GM Mike Maccagnan said he talked to teams before the draft and on the clock about potential trades, but "there was never an offer we felt good enough to move back for." They talked to the Raiders (4) and Bills (9), but decided to stand pat and take DT Quinnen Williams. This will raise questions about the future of DL Leonard Williams, who is in the final year of his contract. Maccagnan said, "We like Leonard quite a bit. We actually like the idea of putting all those guys together on the field at the same time."

Dexter Lawrence goes at pick No. 17 to the Giants. He's a big body added to the middle of the defense. More of a run stuffer who pushes the pocket as a pass rusher. He had 4.0 sacks the past two years combined. Now have to wonder how he fits with Dalvin Tomlinson who Giants likes as a nose tackle.
