The New York Jets continued to build their offensive line in the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting offensive tackle Cameron Clark from Charlotte with the 129th overall pick. Clark is likely to slide inside to guard, where we could potentially compete for playing time as a rookie at one of the Jets overall weaker positions.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select RB La’Mical Perine

Initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Florida RB La’Mical Perine

The first pick of day three for the New York Jets was Florida RB La’Mical Perine, as they continued to address offensive support for Sam Darnold. Perine will have a good opportunity to immediately become RB2 on a thin Jets depth chart that may also bring back Bilal Powell and is preparing for Le’Veon Bell to likely move on after the 2020 season. Perine’s athleticism does not jump off the page but he has a well rounded game and is a good pass catcher out of the backfield, which is a mandate for running back’s in today’s NFL.

New York Jets – Top Ten Jets Day 3 Targets

James Kuntz with ten targets for the New York Jets on day three of the NFL Draft

It’s been a roller coaster of a draft so far for the NY Jets. After an eventful Day 2 in which the Jets traded down from the 48th overall pick, the Jets wound up with Baylor WR Denzel Mims, Cal DB Ashtyn Davis and Florida DE Jabari Zuniga, in addition to first round pick Mekhi Becton (OT, Louisville). Perhaps the most impressive Joe Douglas feat was turning the 48th overall pick into a talented receiver (Mims), two fourth round picks and a 2021 sixth round pick. Day 3 will be a busy one for the Jets, who are slated to pick six times tomorrow: three times in the fourth round, once in the fifth, and twice in the sixth.
