Well this completes the 2012 NFL draft for the New York Jets.

With the 244th selection in the draft, we take Jordan White from Western Michigan. A selection that I know a lot of people here will like. He has nice size and excellent build for a wide receiver, he is a confident route runner who already has been applauded for his ability to work through the NFL route tree

In 2010 he had 94 receptions for 1,378 yards and 10 touchdowns. However he passed that in 2011 when he put up incredible numbers of 140 catches for 1,911 yards and 17 touchdowns. This is even more incredible when you consider that White had two ACL injuries while at Western Michigan and missed considerable time at the start of his career.

It's a great value selection that gives an offence that struggled last year, even more fire power.

This concludes the formal part of the draft, now comes the scramble for the UDFA's.
