The New York Jets draft Jamal Adams Safety from LSU with the number 6 overall pick.
Adams is a great play maker who has very natural instincts. He can find the ball as well as lay the wood. This safety is a solid pick by the New York Jets.
Personally, I would have looked for offense first because they have no legitimate receiving corps or tight end.
Adams will fill the Jets’ need at defensive back, but there are still plenty of holes to fill throughout the roster. What’s left is Wide Receiver, Offensive Line, Tight End, , Quarterback and Cover Corner.
This kid could start the first game of the season and is a threat to the returning starters. This is not just based on his skill, but there really isn’t anyone else on the Jets that I have enough confidence in to take the job away from Adams.
Coming out of the South Eastern Conference you know this kid can play with top competition on a large stage. He is very durable which is important for a hard-hitting safety. As a freshman he played all 13 games and has not missed a start since.
Production wise he has amassed 209 tackles 18 tackles for loss and 5 interceptions in just 36 games which is a major accomplishment playing against top competition in arguably the toughest conference in the college football. He did so well his Junior year he had the honor of receiving All-SEC first team.
Overall I feel Adams is a solid overall pick and definitely fills the Jets needs.
