The New York Jets Select WR Jalen Saunders with the 104th Overall Pick in the NFL Draft

It’s the final day of the NFL draft, Jets’ fans. Rounds 4-7 are underway, and taking place right now from Radio City Music Hall. The Jets have secured a league high of nine picks on this final day of the raft. It’s a lifeline, that is John Idzik’s answer, and he is sticking to it.

This choice, the 104th overall, remember is the final piece of the Darrelle Revis trade.

The choice is Jalen Saunders, WR from Oklahoma.

Take a look at his college stats:

Not knowing a lot about Saunders, I read mixed reviews. The TV analysts say he is quite the physical player, but if you read his profile, you would be led to believe that he is not at all a physical player.

We shall see this summer on this one.
