1 (11). Mekhi Becton, T, Louisville
2 (59). Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
3 (68). Ashtyn Davis, S, California
3 (79). Jabari Zuniga, DE, Florida
4 (120). La’Mical Perine, RB, Florida
4 (125). James Morgan, QB, Florida International

5 (158). Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
6 (191). Braden Mann, P, Texas A&M
The Jets addressed their two monumental needs with two uber talented prospects with their first two selections. Becton was caught in a goofy offensive scheme at college, and was moved back and forth from the right to left side, unable to settle on a position. He should finally get to fulfill his potential on the left side.
Other than Redskins at 2, no team probably rushed their pick in faster than the Jets did with Mims at 59. – Can only imagine the relief and delight that Jets fans had after their first two picks were completed.
The final two picks could be very important to the success of the franchise in the near future. Bryce Hall is a first round talent that is recovering from a terrible injury. When fully healed, he could end up as a starting corner with ProBowl potential.
Finally, Mann is a true difference making punter. Often overlooked in drafts, a truly special punter can change games far more than generally perceived.

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.
