The New York Jets select Maryland CB Dexter McDougle with their third round pick

The Jets have used their 3rd round selection (80th pick overall) on CB Dexter McDougle from Maryland. This is not a name many Jets fans were familiar with or were expecting to go in the 3rd round.

My personal take on the pick: Color me extremely underwhelmed. NFL and CBS both projected McDougle as a 6th or even 7th round pick. McDougle is small, short, and has unimpressive speed. I'm assuming Rex or the Jets scouting sees something they really like in Dexter McDougle, but I was personally surprised to see a prospect who was arguably a consensus late round pick to get taken this early. I personally don't think there was any threat of McDougle being taken in the 3rd round. At best, McDougle projects as a slot CB at his size.

More to come on this pick throughout the evening. Please continue watching our dreamy cast of Jets writers in their special draft show:
