The Jets have two picks in the third round this season thanks to the Leonard Williams trade. The Giants sent them their third-round pick, no. 68 overall, for the right to have Williams for the final eight games of this season.
This pick from the Giants’ was a major score for Douglas, who turns it into a starting center. Wisconsin’s Tyler Biadasz is one of the best interior line prospects in this draft, scoring rave reviews for his vision and mobility.
ESPN’s Todd McShay projects that Biadasz will be a late second-rounder, so the Jets may have to trade up from here to get him. If the Jets can land Biadasz and Wirfs, this draft could have a lasting impact like the 2006 class did. That year saw the Jets draft D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold in the first round, with the pair anchoring the offensive line for a decade.
The Jets have been searching for an edge rusher since 2006, with a notable whiff coming in the third round last year. That pick was another Gator in Jachai Polite, whose poor habits off the field got him cut before camp started.
The Jets go back to the Florida well here with Greenard, who racked up nine sacks as a senior and posted solid numbers at the combine. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams would love to get his hands on a guy like Greenard, who can bolster the Jets’ pass-rushing depth right now.
