Jets | Leonard Williams willing to move around
New York Jets DE Leonard Williams said he would prefer to play defensive end but is willing to play anywhere the team wants. "I'm willing to play wherever they want me to play, because being versatile at USC, it allows me to fit in a lot of different spots," Williams said. "I'd prefer to play defensive end, but also… in a lot of sub-packages, I can move around and find spots to get to the quarterback."

Jets | Geno Smith says he deserves to start
New York Jets QB Geno Smith believes the Jets are his team to lead, but acknowledges the competition he'll need to face in order to win the starting job. "There's always other guys, and there's always going to be competition. I've always welcomed it, and I still do," Smith said. The Jets brought in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason to compete with Smith and could bring in more competition via the draft.
Jets | Owner happy with Geno Smith
New York Jets QB Geno Smith is a good starting quarterback if he cuts down on his mistakes, and the team needs to add some weapons on offense to help Smith, according to owner Woody Johnson. "He's going to mature," Johnson said. "He's not going to be making rookie mistakes anymore and he's not going to be making sophomore mistakes anymore, hopefully. If he can carry over the way he finished last year, when he played against the Dolphins [in the final game], he played OK. So if he can keep that going, we're good. We're going to get him more targets."

Jets | Not planning to trade Muhammad Wilkerson
New York Jets DT Muhammad Wilkerson is generating trade interest from at least two teams as the NFL Draft approaches this week, but the Jets have no intentions of trading him. However, the Jets are expected to listen to offers. Wilkerson is entering the prime of his career and has one year left on his current contract and is looking for a new deal. He's scheduled to make $6.96 million in 2015.

Jets | Want more draft picks?
New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said he'd like to have more picks, saying he believes there are opportunities to acquire more talent. Maccagnan also added that he wouldn't be opposed to moving up the draft board.

Jets | GM prefers to trade down in draft
Updating a previous item, New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has considered trading up in the draft to theoretically select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, but the GM would prefer to trade down and accumulate more picks. "It's almost like a portfolio," Maccagnan said. "Do you pick one stock you think is going to get the big return or do you pick three stocks which may not actually hit the same ceiling but the overall value of it actually gets a higher yield."
Jets | Looking to trade up in draft
New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan is prepared to explore the possibility of trading up in the 2015 NFL Draft next week, which will obviously fuel speculation that the Jets want to select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. "We're going to reach out to every team ahead of us to gauge, to get a value for what they're looking for in compensation to move up in the draft," Maccagnan said. "That doesn't mean we're actually trying to go up and get a player, but you (see) what the market value is, basically." The Jets own the No. 6 overall pick in the draft, and it would cost them a lot to move up to No. 2, where the Tennessee Titans currently sit. The Jets have conducted private workouts with Mariota and have had a separate visit with him.
