Joe Schoen and Joe Douglas will be busy men for the next four weeks.
The New York Giants and New York Jets general managers both have multiple top 10 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
But not for long, according to NBC Sports NFL insider Peter King:
The Giants, who are picked fifth and seventh overall, will likely try to move one of them to try for multiple first-rounders next year. The Jets, with four picks in the top 40, would also like to postpone one until next year, if the right offer comes along.

The Giants and Jets are not alone, with six teams having multiple first-round selections this year following the trades of Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos and Deshaun Watson to the Cleveland Browns.
– Detroit Lions (Nos. 2 and 32)
– Houston Texans (Nos. 3 and 13)
– New York Jets (Nos. 4 and 10)
– New York Giants (Nos. 5 and 7)
– Philadelphia Eagles (Nos. 15, 16 and 19)
– Green Bay Packers (Nos. 22 and 28)
So who could be in the market for a round one this year? Per King: “The Niners have zero choices in the top 60. The Raiders have zero choices in the top 80. The Rams have zero choices in the top 100. … Denver has zero choices in the top 60 and five choices in the next 60.”
