Jets interested in trading up for Melvin Ingram

According to Tony Pauline of, theĀ New York Jets are interested in trading up in the 1st round for Melvin Ingram.

To land Ingram the Jets may need to move into the top 10 (Pauline suggests the Jaguars as a potential trade partner). It would be a bold move, but one that makes sense if the Jets feel as though they are a pass rusher away from contending for the Super Bowl.

Taking Ingram in the top 10 may be a slight reach, but I can’t fault the Jets for moving up to land their guy. This is a fairly weak class of pass rushers, and a team on the verge of contention can always justify moving up to fill their most glaring hole.
