The New York Jets Select Dexter McDougle with the 80th Pick of the 2014 NFL Draft

The New York Jets had one more pick to make for night two of the draft. Jace Amaro was chosen by the Jet approximately 40 picks earlier. Now we are in the third round, and time for Idzik to make one more play for us before the weekend. Who is it? Let’s see…


So the Jets chose another defensive player in the draft. We have to let this play out more, but the more it does, the more it seems that John Idzik gives Rex Ryan his share of what to say. Here are McDougle’s stats:

Defense & Fumbles

Career Maryland 114 37 151 5.5 0.0 6 49 8.2 1 19 1 66 1 1

Without seeing a lot on this young man, he is healthy. During his college career, he could certainly make a break on, and go get the football when it was up in the air.

Here is some video:

McDougle can play, but I am not so sure that defense was the way to go, again. When is it going to be time to start clearing offensive players off of this board?

  • Frank Antonelli

    Typical Jet fan reaction: IGNORANT. Let me remind you guys of the Richardson pick! I think we’ve seen enough of Idzik to know that he sticks religiously to his board. This is a player that would have been picked much higher if not for the injury last year (according to Kiper and McShay). He played 3 games and had 3 interceptions. I’m not saying he’ll be a great player but he’s certainly not a bad player just because some draft boards have him rated lower. It reminds me of all the criticism the Seahawk drafts received the previous three years by the so-called experts and we all know who had the last laugh in that situation!

    • Paul Newbold

      You tell them Frank! So far, this draft has been a bonanza of talent, and yet Jet fans are whining everywhere! They grabbed the best Safety on the board, solidifying the back end of the defense, and fixing a position that has long been neglected. Then they grab arguably the best TE in the draft, giving their offense an explosive play maker and again fixing a long neglected position! Third round they make a great move and add competition to the corner position! As you pointed out McDougal was ranked much higher before the injury that shortened his final year. Rex loves corners, and will make the most of this kid. The Jets are doing fine, stop the complaining Jet Nation!

  • Vincent Hall

    He breaks on the ball and tackles like Darelle Revis. In that regard I think he could be a starter by his 2nd year, and at the very least replace Kyle Wilson as a nickel corner next year. I thought they could have got him in the 4th round at pick 104, but I’m ok with the pick.
