It has become a sad annual rite of spring for the football teams in New York, and the only benefit of another dismal season. All that losing the Giants and Jets seem to do every fall pays off in April with a high pick in the NFL draft.
And that's what appears to be happening again. Barring an unexpected run of victories over the next six weeks, the Giants (2-8) and the Jets (3-7) will have Top 10 picks in the NFL draft in April. It will be the third straight year they're both in the Top 10. Remarkably, at least one of them has picked that high for six straight years.
The good news is that if that happens they could both find the help they so desperately need, particularly with their pass rush, their offensive line, or perhaps a play-making receiver. It'll help, too, that neither of them are in the market for quarterbacks, which could also make a high pick a valuable commodity in trade.
