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.
