Barring a trade back into the Draft, the Jets have made all of their selections. There are six rookies who will be joining the team.
First Round; Pick #3; #3 Overall: Sam Darnold, QB, USC
The Jets at long last land their quarterback of the future.
Third Round; Pick #8; #72 Overall: Nathan Shepherd, DL, Fort Hays
Without a second round pick, the Jets swing big early in the third round hoping to hit a homerun with the small school lineman who turned heads during Senior Bowl week.
Fourth Round; Pick #7; #107 Overall: Chris Herndon, TE, Miami
Overshadowed a bit by David Njoku during his college career, Herndon is a willing blocker and has the tools to become a weapon in the passing game.
Sixth Round; Pick #5; #179 Overall: Parry Nickerson, CB, Tulane
Although relatively undersized, a number of observers believe Nickerson has some of the best instincts and ball skills in the class. He is a favorite of Pro Football Focus.
Sixth Round; Pick #6; #180 Overall: Foley Fatukasi, DL, UConn
With their second sixth round pick, the Jets add a developmental defensive lineman.
Sixth Round; Pick #30; #204 Overall: Trenton Cannon, RB, Virginia State
The Jets go the small school route the second time. Cannon was a prolific college back and has experience in the return game.
