The Jets added depth at running back with the 202 pick of the draft, choosing Terrance Ganaway from Baylor, a guy we mentioned in our “What to watch for” article this morning.
The Jets met with him at the Senior Bowl and liked what they saw in the 6’0″ 241 pound running back. He’s a patient runner, who will add depth at the running back spot.
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
