The Jets have selected wide receiver ArDarius Stewart with the 79th pick in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

ArDarius Stewart is a 5' 11", 205 pound wide receiver out of Alabama.  Stewart is a tough, physical receiver with some speed.  He reminds me a bit of Lavernues Coles.  His production at Alabama was held back by a sub-par freshman quarterback.  Stewart also is a factor as a kick returner on special teams.  After the Jets addressed the safety position with their first two picks they turn to the offense with this pick.
