S – Jamal Adams – Round 1
Let’s face it: The Jets could have gone with the best player available to address any of the countless needs they have as they start from scratch. Adams was praised for his leadership at LSU and the Jets got their centerpiece for the future. So far so good for the safety, who drew rave reviews from teammates throughout early practices.
S – Marcus Maye – Round 2
The Jets doubled up on safeties, pairing Maye with his SEC mate in Adams to pile on the athleticism while getting a bit more versatile in the secondary. Back-to-back safeties with so many other voids was questionable, but there’s a bright future in the defensive backfield.
WR – Chad Hansen – Round 4
Hansen was one of the most reliable targets in the nation last season, serving as the straw that stirred the Cal Golden Bears’ air-raid offense. Despite missing time with an ankle injury, the wide receiver snared 92 balls for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games. Also taking ArDarius Stewart in the previous round, the offense has some ground to make up after parting ways with veterans Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
“This looks like an all-out rebuilding year for the New York Jets, as they cleaned house in the offseason by waiving several veterans with big names. It has left the Jets with one of the weakest rosters in the NFL. They did little to improve their personnel in free agency after dumping over $50 million of veteran salaries.
They have huge questions at quarterback, and their once strong defense is in shambles. It is hard to know where the explosive plays will come from on both sides of the ball, but let’s look at a couple of things that we might see.” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton
