Jets 2017 NFL Draft Day 2 Grade

New, comments
NFL: New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Dan Kadar of SB Nation provides a grade for the second day of the NFL Draft for the Jets.

New York Jets

2-39: Marcus Maye, S, Florida

3-79: ArDarius Stewart, WR, Alabama

Maye, along with Jamal Adams, fixes New York’s issue at safety. I’m not as big of a fan of Maye as others. He’s a speedy safety who is at his best in the box finding the ball and chasing it. As a single high safety he leaves a bit to be desired.

In the third round the Jets picked up Stewart, who was a solid value selection. He fits a need for the Jets, assuming they have a quarterback who can get him the ball. They might not.

Grade: C+

Of course any of these grades are premature. The only grades that matter come a few years down the line when we know how good these players turn out to be.

I think I have the opposite take. I really like the Maye pick in round two. I don’t love the Stewart pick as much, although I don’t hate it.

I like the fact that the Jets were able to move down and acquire a couple of additional late round picks.
