Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Elijah McGuire

The New York Jets selected RB Elijah McGuire from Louisiana Lafayette with the 188th overall pick in the 6th round. The Jets wanted to add a dynamic running back to the mix with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell so this doesn’t come as a surprise. They haven’t had good fortune adding running backs in free agency in recent years so let’s hope adding one through the draft goes better.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Dylan Donahue

The New York Jets, with one of the extra picks they acquired after a Saturday of wheeling and dealing, selected OLB Dylan Donahue from West Georgia. This isn’t really the pick I’m sure most Jets fans had in mind when they said the team needed an edge rusher, but the former D2 Lineman brings some strengths that should help the Jets going forward at that position.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Jordan Leggett

The New York Jets selected Jordan Leggett with the 150th overall pick in the 5th round. This draft’s tight end class is strong and the Jets needed to leave with at least one and they finally selected one.

Joe Caporoso with thoughts on the New York Jets heading into day three of the NFL Draft

After trading back twice on day two, the New York Jets will have six selections today in the 2017 NFL Draft, including two in the 5th round and two in the 6th round. Can they capitalize and build depth throughout arguably the worst roster in the NFL?

The New York Jets traded back in the 3rd round from #70 to #79 and picked up an extra fifth round pick from the Minnesota Vikings. With their third round selection, they selected Alabama wide receiver ArDarius Stewart, a mild surprise considering the round, his skill set and position.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Marcus Maye

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selection of Florida safety Marcus Maye

The New York Jets doubled down on the safety position after taking Jamal Adams in round one with the selection of Florida safety Marcus Maye. After taking Adams, this is somewhat surprising but the value of Maye at #39 cannot be questioned as many saw him as a borderline first round player. The Jets have went above and beyond to fix a long term weak spot on their defense.

TOJ Pick Six – Jets Best/Worst Case Scenario for Day 2 of NFL Draft

Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six and of best and worst case scenarios for the New York Jets on day two of the NFL Draft

The New York Jets got the best player in the draft for the second time in three years under General Manager Mike Maccagnan by selecting LSU Safety Jamal Adams. This was a great pick coupled with some luck, as Adams should not have been on the board at 6. Repeat it after me: Jamal Adams is not a box safety. We’ll do a deeper dive into how Adams fits on this roster in the next day or so, but with this article we’ll take a look at who the best pick at 39, 70, and 107 are for the Jets tonight. I will also provide you the worst case scenario, aside from not making a pick at all, for these picks. Continue reading “TOJ Pick Six – Jets Best/Worst Case Scenario for Day 2 of NFL Draft”

The Jets have three selections today, #39 overall in the second round and #70 and #107 overall in the third round. Who are the names to watch?

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select Jamal Adams

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Jamal Adams

As expected.

The New York Jets took the player everybody expected them to take if he was available with the 6th overall pick, safety Jamal Adams from LSU. With Mitchell Trubisky off the board at #2 (HA!), the options to trade down for the Jets were likely limited, leaving them to take the second overall player on their board.
