Jets select Marcus Maye with second-round pick in NFL Draft

NFL Draft time is nearly here again and the New York Jets find themselves in a familiar position: with a high pick.

The tier below Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett, the presumptive top pick, features two safeties, LSU's Jamal Adams and Ohio State's Malik Hooker, and two 3-4-scheme defensive linemen, Alabama's Jonathan Allen and Stanford's Solomon Thomas. That year, Williams unexpectedly dropped to NY - and the same thing happened with Adams, who was largely projected to go within the top three selections.

"The thing that I think is overlooked is his desire to win as a team. I knew when he went away he was going to be a good kid". "After all I've been through, I'll take whatever happens".

Personally, I would have looked for offense first because they have no legitimate receiving corps or tight end. "It's great to be a Jet". Adams' dad, George Adams, was a first round pick in the 1985 National Football League draft.

Last season, Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor were the starting safeties for the Jets. So I think I have the right people surrounding me to help me get through my new life in the Big Apple.

I don't think the play was malicious. "I'm not going to get into that". "There was zero intention of (Machado) trying to hurt me". The knuckleballer scattered three hits in the first three innings but allowed four runs on six hits in the fourth.


Jamal's coach at Hebron High School, Brian Brazil, says Jamal serves as an inspiration to those who come behind him that anything is possible, if the hard work is put in.

"I was definitely surprised I slipped, but at the same time, everything happens for a reason", Adams said during a conference call. "Three years went by fast". The position's lack of importance coupled with the uncertainty at quarterback make me believe NY shouldn't draft a tight end with their top pick. One includes lineman Leonard Williams, the Jets most valuable player at this point.

Adams is considered to be slightly small for his position, but has a tremendous upside. "At some point, you're going to run out of trade-up partners".

You can often find Adams near the football, mostly because he diagnoses plays extremely well. "He plays on the balls of his feet and has the flexible joints to change directions and accelerate fluidly". Bucannon is a better player than Pryor, but there's enough crossover. And quarterback Mark Sanchez, who the Jets traded up to select, was unable to install himself as a franchise quarterback despite back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances. Nobody can compete with me...it was custom-made head to toe.

"He was a four-year starter in the SEC, so that tells you something".
