The Jets have waived five players: RB Brandon Burks, WR Darius Jennings, LS Josh Latham, LB Jeff Luc and DL Julien Obioha. This puts the roster at 76, which gives them 14 openings for draft picks and undrafted free agents.

Some late draft buzz on the Jets: Hearing that Ohio State S Malik Hooker is very much in play with the sixth pick, per source. They also like LSU S Jamal Adams, but he may not last to six. The interest in safeties may explain why the Jets have been non-committal on whether they will exercise the fifth-year option for S Calvin Pryor. The deadline is next Wednesday. Hooker is recovering from off-season hip and hernia surgeries, but there doesn't appear to be any concern.

One of the Jets' Day 3 draft picks will be announced from FDNY EMS Station 26 in the Bronx, where the late Yadira Arroyo worked until last month. She was killed on the job when she was run over by a man who stole her ambulance. Her five sons, ranging in ages from 8 to 23, will participate in announcing the pick. MTA police officer Daniel McDade, who stopped the alleged killer, also will be on hand. A nice gesture by the Jets and the NFL.

GM Mock Draft: Jets shore up secondary

Todd Bowles wants his corners to play more aggressively, and he could get one with great man-to-man instincts at the No. 6 spot.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Jets' pass defense struggled mightily last season, even with Darrelle Revis occupying one of the corner spots. The Jets could target a safety such as Jamal Adams or Malik Hooker in the first round of the draft to help boost the secondary.

Former Jets Joe Klecko and Brandon Moore will announce the team's second- and third-round picks, respectively, from the NFL draft in Philadelphia. It's a homecoming for Klecko, who was born in Chester, Pa., and attended Temple. This is the 40th anniversary of the 1977 draft, which produced Ring-of-Honor members Klecko and Wesley Walker.

NFL draft buzz: Do the Jets want Trubisky?

Are the New York Jets really interested in Mitchell Trubisky, or are they bluffing with hopes that a team trades ahead of them? If true, Todd McShay thinks it's a strategy that makes sense.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan could've doused the Sheldon Richardson trade rumors on Monday, but he took a pass, declining to comment on whether he will try to deal Richardson before or during the draft. He said, "As a general manager, you're looking at all different ways you can change the team, improve the team or help the team. You weigh everything as you come across it." Officials from some other teams believe a trade is unlikely, in large part, because of Richardson's $8.1 million salary.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, speaking Monday in his annual pre-draft news conference, declined to say whether they will exercise the fifth-year option for S Calvin Pryor. The deadline is May 3. The salary amount hasn't been announced yet by the league, but it will be at least $5.676 million -- the 2016 amount for safeties. The salary is guaranteed for injury only, and doesn't become fully guaranteed until next March.

Jets' dream draft scenario: Find their franchise QB

New York could be in position to bolster its D-line, like it did with Leonard Williams in 2015. However, trading down and taking Deshaun Watson should be the Jets' dream scenario.
