Enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Looks like linebacker Vernon Gholston tops the list as the greatest draft bust in franchise history.

It’s a sunny Thursday afternoon here in the city that never sleeps as the 2017 NFL Draft gets a day closer from taking place. If you’re a fan of the New York Jets, you can’t wait for that No. 6 overall pick to be selected to see what direction the franchise is heading in for the future. Your guess is as good as mine but at the end of the day, the Jets have more than qualified decision makers to do what makes the most sense.

Below are the latest articles on the Jets from top sources on the internet. These go perfectly with your coffee on lunch. Enjoy and remember, add an extra packet of sugar for that extra energy to get through today.

In an article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, he easily put linebacker Vernon Gholston on top of his list of the greatest draft bust of all-time for the Jets. Not only was Gholston one of the worst linebackers to play for the team but he lacked leadership and overall talent to even be starting material. My personal pick would be cornerback Dee Milliner who was an overhyped player that barely saw playing time due to injuries stemming all the way from college. The warning signs were everywhere but at the time, the leadership regime thought it would be a great decision to draft him. Needless to say, everyone that made those decisions, including Milliner himself, are gone.

In another article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, he did a draft profile on safety Jamal Adams out of LSU. Plenty of mock drafts have the Jets taking the best available defensive back as in this case, Adams would be a great decision by the franchise. He’d be a Week 1 starter and fill an immediate need on defense.

In a video posted directly by the New York Jets on their website, many legends of the team spoke about what it means to be in the Ring of Honor. It’s a great video that will bring back many memories to Jets fans across the globe.

Finally, in an article written by Jonathan Comeaux of NFL Trade Rumors, he wrote about the Jets re-signing cornerback Marcus Williams. Hopefully, he bounces back this upcoming season despite dealing with nagging injuries. When healthy, Williams is a solid cornerback but injuries have unfortunately limited him and his ability to get the job done. Even though he was just re-signed, he needs to prove his worth this summer or could either be out of the job or delegated back to backup duties. If the Jets do end up taking a safety with the No. 6 overall pick, the writing could be on the wall for Williams.
