Draft Grade: Handcuffed, but Solid
The Jets probably would have loved to have gotten a haul for the third overall pick, but if Williams plays like he looks like he could, that will be forgotten in a few years. They are a bit restricted because of moves they had to make to get their QB, but did a nice job drafting good players where they could find them.
Williams and Polite should be looked at together, as the two will provide a huge boost to their ability to pressure opposing QBs. Polite had a bad draft process, but if he gets his head on straight, could be one of the great values of this draft.
Wesco is a very versatile prospect that will be used as a FB/TE hybrid.
Edoga is a nice prospect that looked very good at the Senior Bowl and should be their right tackle soon. However, they need to quickly make that offensive line a priority.
