Heading into the 2017 NFL Draft, the New York Jets have a great selection of picks in Rounds 2 & 3 tonight.
In case you missed it, the New York Jets selected safety Jamal Adams out of LSU last night in Round 1 of the 2017 NFL Draft. So far, fans of the Jets really love the pick as Twitter reactions have everyone partying like it’s 1969.
But the work of general manager Mike Maccagnan is far from over. It’s no secret the best general managers make high-quality choices in Rounds 2 & 3 of the draft. It won’t be easy but since so many popular names dropped out of Round 1 last night, the Jets will easily have some solid players available.
In an article written by Eric Allen of the NewYorkJets.com, here is every draft pick the Jets have at this point in time heading into Rounds 2 & 3 tonight:

Round 3 – No. 70
Round 3 – No. 107 (Compensatory)
It’s hard to tell what direction the Jets will go in but since they added one huge part of the puzzle to address their defensive secondary issues, it would make sense to continue bolstering it with a cornerback. Of course, the Jets might also be inclined to add a premier offensive weapon in Round 2, perhaps another wide receiver or even a versatile running back.
Either way, Adams is a great start in a draft class that could show some major potential over the next few years. Defense wins championships as it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Jets continue to bolster their defense with the No. 39 and No. 70 pick, respectively. Their defense as a whole was abysmal last season as it makes sense to stock up on talent in the middle rounds of this year’s draft.
Overall, it’s going to be exciting to see what direction the Jets take tonight. For extensive coverage of the Jets all throughout the NFL Draft, please bookmark The Jet Press and follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
