After lots of trades and picks, Jets fill big needs in draft

After lots of trades and picks, Jets fill big needs in draft

Tony Richardson, former Kansas City Chief who played the last three years of his career with the New York Jets, was their presenter in the third round of the NFL Draft.

The Jets capped Saturday by making three trades, even gaining a pick next year in the process, giving them five deals during the three-day draft.

The 6-2, 202-pound Hansen may not have generated much pre-draft buzz, but he has very good hands and enough size and speed to be productive in the Jets offense. It was the Jets' only compensatory pick this year, and they were on the clock preparing to spend it at tonight's NFL Draft.

After going safety first in the opening two rounds, NY made a run on offensive playmakers.

NY went back to defense later in the fifth, taking West Georgia linebacker Dylan Donahue. A day later, they gave that 160th pick (a fifth-rounder) and No. 224 (a seventh-rounder) to the Browns in exchange for No. 181 (a fifth-rounder) and No. 188 (a sixth-rounder).

Trump softens stance on border wall funding
President Trump listens while holding a video conference to the International Space Station with NASA astronauts on April 24. Republicans are seeking an initial $1.4 billion in the spending bill, but many question the wisdom of an enormous wall.

The team entered the draft with seven receivers already on the roster: Decker, Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Quinton Patton, Charone Peake, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith.

Stewart compiled a career 1,713 yards on 129 catches (13.3 yards per reception) with 12 touchdowns.

He has the size and speed to be a talented pass-catching tight end in the National Football League, as the 6-foot-5 tight end ran a 4.76-second 40-yard dash at Clemson's pro day.

STILL NEED: The addition of Donahue should help on special teams and perhaps as an outside pass rusher - he had 13 ½ sacks for Division II West Georgia last season - but the Jets will likely look to add depth at linebacker via undrafted free agents.

Tom Pelissero of US today piggy backed on a tweet from Ian Rapoport that said the Jets were shopping former first round pick Sheldon Richardson, to add that safety Calvin Pryor is on the block as well.
