The Jets may be on the move.

According to NFL sources, Rex Ryan & Co. are currently exploring the option of moving up in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft to select a quarterback. After taking two defensive players—Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner and Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson—in the first round, the thought is that the Jets may be thinking about taking a quarterback in the second round. And that quarterback could very well be Geno Smith, who the Jets met with last month.

Of course, this is all speculation right now. But keep an eye on the Jets when the draft starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight. They currently have the seventh pick in the second round. So, if you see them make a move up, you probably know what's coming next.
