Extra Points: Raiders, Jets, Jags, Lions

A flurry of trade activity has dominated Day 2 of the draft — here’s the latest news from New York:

  • The Raiders had the chance to trade their No. 36 pick to the Cowboys, but they resisted in order to stay ahead of the Titans, tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
  • The Jets were furiously trying to trade up with the Buccaneers to grab USC wide receiver Marqise Lee, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (on Twitter). They feared that the Jaguars would take him and that’s exactly what happened.
  • The Jaguars attempted to trade with the Browns, hoping to move up to pick No. 35 and select Lee, reports Vito Stellino of Jacksonville.com (via Twitter). Lee, of course, ended up falling into Jacksonville’s lap at pick No. 39.
  • General manager Martin Mayhew says the Lions, worried that another team might pick Kyle Van Noy, spoke with several teams about trading up, tweets Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Detroit eventually acquired pick No. 40 from the Seahawks and selected Van Noy.
