ESPN's Jon Gruden positively gushed about Jamal Adams to the Jets. He called the former LSU safety the No. 1 player in the draft, adding, "I love the fact that he's going to the Big Apple. He reminds me of some of my favorite safeties – the Ronnie Lotts, the Rodney Harrisons. He's a wrecking machine, he's versatile, he can play in the post, he's a great one-on-one tackler. He's an inspiring leader and a quality person. This is a huge pick for the Jets." Sounds like Gruden is a fan.

Clark confident in Jamal Adams' ability (2:30)

Let's put the Jets' selection of Jamal Adams into historical perspective. He's only the ninth safety to be chosen in the top six since the merger in 1970, according to Pro Football Reference. It last happened in 2010, when the Chiefs picked Eric Berry at five. Safety is a historically weak position for the Jets. Only one in the last 27 years has made a Pro Bowl -- LaRon Landry (2012), per PFR.
