The New York Jets have selected safety Hamsah Nasirildeen out of Florida State with the 186th overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Hamsah Nasirildeen is a 6’ 4”, 220 pound safety. Nasirildeen played 35 games in four years at Florida State, where he amassed 233 tackles, 4 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. Nasirildeen has great size, burst and instincts. He takes great angles and would probably have been drafted much higher but for a torn ACL that sidelined him for all but two games in 2020. If he is fully recovered the Jets may have gotten a steal at this selection.

Nasirildeen joins Jamien Sherwood as players with the size and strength to play the hybrid safety/linebacker position currently in vogue in the NFL. The Jets continue to add talent to the defense late in this draft.

With this selection the Jets now have the following remaining picks in the 2021 NFL Draft:

Sixth Round: Pick 200 and Pick #207
