1st/6 Jamal Adams, S Ht.: 6-0  Wt.: 214 School: LSU Having Jamal Adams fall into their laps had to be best case scenario for the Jets. Adams is a physical safety who can come down and lay big hits in the run game but he also has the speed and quickness to react in zone…

1st/23 Evan Engram, TE Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 234 School: Mississippi Taking Engram in the first round was a surprising move as the similar but more talented David Njoku was still available.
