Here’s what to expect from the Jets on Day Three of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Defense, defense, defense.
The Jets used their first three 2021 draft picks on offense. Now, it is time to help the defense out. The Jets enter Day 3 of the draft with major holes at cornerback and linebacker and they could use an edge rusher, too. They also need to add a running back.
The Jets have six picks on Saturday — two each in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds.
The top cornerbacks available are Tay Gowan of Central Florida, Shaun Wade of Ohio State, Shakur Brown of Michigan State and Marco Wilson of Florida. The best linebackers left are LSU’s Jabril Cox, Alabama’s Dylan Moses and Auburn’s K.J. Britt.
North Carolina’s Michael Carter and Memphis’ Kenneth Gainwell are among the best running backs left.
In the sixth round, the Jets may look to add a kicker.
