Seven picks until Giants. Five players they really like (Howard, Bolles, Davis, Lamp and Allen) still available. Does it pay to be patient?

Jets draft pick Jamal Adams, speaking to reporters via conference call, admitted he didn't expect to last until the sixth pick. "If I sat here and told you I wasn't surprised, I'd be lying," he said. "I was definitely surprised that I slipped. At the same time, everything happens for a reason." Adams said he got an assurance from the Jets on a recent visit. "They were definitely saying if I slip to six, there's no questions asked, they'll come and get me," he said. "They kept their word and they delivered."

We're getting into realistic range for an O.J. Howard trade up. There are 13 picks in and bunch of teams with TEs coming up.

The Yankees-Red Sox game took two hours and 21 minutes. That is not a typo.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

That is what an ace performance looks like. Masahiro Tanka pitched a shutout to outduel Chris Sale, giving the Yankees a 3-0 win over the Red Sox. The Yankees took both games of this rain-shortened two-game series. They are 13-7, while the team Brian Cashman dubbed the "Golden State Warriors of baseball," the Red Sox, are 11-10.

Jamal Adams well worth No. 6 pick

The former LSU safety gets tested by the Sports Science team and compares favorably to some NFL contemporaries.

Jets land impact player in Jamal Adams (0:45)

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.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

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).

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.
