New York Teams

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

The Jets have picked a defensive player with their first-rounder every year since 2010. QB Mark Sanchez (2009) is the last offensive player they selected in Round 1.

Jamal Adams is among the most durable safeties in this draft class. The All-American started 24 straight games to end his career in Baton Rouge.

First six picks in books. Next 3 have tight ends. Interesting to see if someone trades up for O.J. Howard or he falls out of Top 10. Giants likely monitoring.

Safety Jamal Adams has the ability to change the identity of the Jets secondary. Just look at the versatility, the natural instincts and the leadership he brings to the field. Expect Adams to play multiple roles for the New York defense.

Sometimes the board falls your way. Jamal Adams is one of the few culture-changing players in this draft, and that's exactly what the Jets need on defense.

The Jets got lucky … again. Picking sixth, they took LSU S Jamal Adams, who was expected to go as high as No. 2. Adams will help their woeful pass defense and he will upgrade their locker room because he's a terrific leader. In 2015, DL Leonard Williams fell to the Jets at 6 – and it worked out well. The big question, will they regret not taking QB Deshaun Watson? Knowing Jets' fans, they'll be second-guessing that for decades.

There's a case to be made that the Jets just got the best player in the draft at No. 6 overall for the second time in three years. Not saying I like Jamal Adams over Myles Garrett or Leonard Williams over Amari Cooper, but some would.

The Jets are huge winners with the wild start to this draft. They can now fill their gaping hole at safety with LSU's Jamal Adams (No. 2 overall player).

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets are on the clock. I think the best player available is S Jamal Adams, but they also like TE O.J. Howard, CB Marshon Lattimore and QB Deshaun Watson. The Jets never expected Adams to be available at 6, so I think this is where they go. The pass defense stunk last season – 30 touchdown passes, only eight interceptions.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

LSU safety Jamal Adams told me last week that when he visited the Jets, they joked with him, "Why are you here?" He told me that they didn't think he'd make it out of the top five. He might just fall into their laps at 6.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Power back for Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone. Makes sense for Jags to go offense. Jets have to LOVE knowing they can get OJ Howard or their choice of the top two safeties.

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets, picking sixth, are on deck. Still on the board: S Jamal Adams, S Malik Hooker, TE O.J. Howard, DE Jonathan Allen and … QB Deshaun Watson. I think the Jets would like Adams, a free/strong safety with excellent leadership ability.

NFL 

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

Someone is going to get great value with LSU safety Jamal Adams, who's my No. 2 overall player and is still on the board. It'll be interesting to see if Jacksonville and/or Tennessee sticks with positional need or takes the best player available in Adams. If both pass, the Jets are a huge winner, given their hole at the position.

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears' stunning move, trading up for QB Mitchell Trubisky, is good for the Jets. It eliminates the pressure to pick Trubisky at six, and moves one of the top targets – perhaps S Jamal Adams – closer to them.

NFL 

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets, picking six, are hoping two defensive linemen – Myles Garrett and Solomon Thomas – go 1-2. They don't need a defensive lineman, and it would push players they covet down to them. They're looking at safety (Jamal Adams or Malik Hooker) and tight end (O.J. Howard). I'd be surprised if they pick a quarterback.

Terrific 10-pitch at-bat by Matt Holliday results in sacrifice fly, which stops Chris Sale's shutout streak at 15 consecutive innings.

Chris Sale is lights-out, once again, for Red Sox. Through three innings against the Yankees, he has seven strikeouts on only 37 pitches (29 strikes).

No team since the 1970 merger has drafted more tight ends in the first round than the Jets -- five. The most recent pick was Dustin Keller in 2008. Get this: Not one of them made the Pro Bowl at tight end. Jerome Barkum was drafted as a tight end, but made it in 1973 as a wide receiver. They could make it six tonight if they pick Alabama's O.J. Howard.

Yankees catcher Gary Sánchez takes live batting practice for the first time since landing on the DL after suffering a right biceps strain on April 8th.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Greetings from Florham Park, N.J., home of the Jets. They will be on the clock in about three hours. With the sixth pick, their choice could be between Ohio State S Malik Hooker and Alabama TE O.J. Howard. Each one would fill a huge need. Scouts tell me Howard is a safer pick because, unlike Hooker, he has no injury issues.
