New York Jets Select Josh Bush, S Wake Forrest

NASHVILLE, TN - DECEMBER 30: Jamerson Love #24 of the Mississippi State Bulldogs tackles Josh Bush #4 of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons after a fake punt during play at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl at LP Field on December 30, 2011 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The wait is over and we now have our 4th player from the 2012 draft class to join Quinton Coples, Stephen Hill and Demario Davis. Josh Bush is the guy, selected over Markelle Martin and Antonio Allen. 4.5 speed, productive guy who can play strong or free safety. He led the team with 6 interceptions in 2011

We pick up a player at an area of need, personally I would have liked to have seen us take Martin or Allen but I don't hate this selection. We needed to go safety and he is a productive, intelligent player.

At 5'11 and 210 lb's Josh Bush has experience as a cover corner as well as safety. He was a 3 year starter at Wake Forrest starting at both corner and safety. In 2011 he played predominantly at free safety where he had his most productive campaign with 59 tackles, 6 interceptions, 5 pass break-ups and 2 tackles for loss.

We'll have more info on the selection in a few minutes, but get your initial thoughts down here.
