The Jets chose a linebacker with the 77th pick in the draft, Demario Davis, OLB from Arkansas State.
He measures at 6’2″ 235 pounds, and ran a 4.61 40 yard dash.
He is said to play well against the run, which will well with any Rex Ryan defense.
Will be back later with our thoughts on both of tonight’s picks.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
